Sir Arthur Henry Rostron, KBE, RD, RNR (14 May 1869 4 November 1940) was a captain for the Cunard Line. He was best remembered as the captain of the ocean liner RMS Carpathia, when it rescued hundreds of survivors of the RMS Titanic which sank in 1912, after striking an iceberg on the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Rostron won wide praise for his energetic efforts to reach the Titanic before she sank, and his efficient preparations for and conduct of the rescue of the survivors. He was awarded a Congressional Gold Medal by the US Congress, and in 1926 was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire. He rose to become the Commodore of the Cunard fleet, and retired in 1931.
