Charles Herbert Shaw (10 August 1900 - 1 August 1955) was an Australian journalist and novelist.

Shaw was born in South Melbourne, Victoria. During the Depression years he held a variety of jobs in the countryside and his interest in writing led him to work at a newspaper in Forbes, New South Wales. Shaw had several stories published by The Bulletin and eventually was employed by the magazine as a rural editor. Shaw, Charles Herbert (1900 - 1955) Biographical Entry - Australian Dictionary of Biography OnlineHe had two collections of Outback short stories Outback Occupations (1943) and A Sheaf of Shorts (1944) and one volume of verse The Warrumbungle Mare (1943) published as well as two detective stories The Green Token (1943) and Treasure of the Hills (1944).
