Howard Murphet (?, 1906-September 28, 2004) was an author and devotee of Sathya Sai Baba.
He was born in Tasmania and educated at the University of Hobart. During the Second World War he served with the Eighth Army at El Alamein and Tunis, took part in the invasion of Sicily and Italy and, later, with the British Second Army, in the invasion of Normandy. He was also in charge of the British Press Section at the Nuremberg Trials. After a period as a Public Relations Officer in the chemical industry, Murphet and his wife travelled to India to visit the international headquarters of the Theosophical Society in Adyar, Madras and also wanted to discover if there was any deeper spiritual dimension in the life of modern India.
