Otis Tufton Mason, Ph.D., LL.D. (April 10, 1838 - November 5, 1908) was an American ethnologist and Smithsonian Institution curator.

Mason was born at Eastport, Maine. He graduated at Columbian University in 1861, then worked there for 23 years (1861—84)). He worked at the United States National Museum from 1884 onward, and founded the Anthropological Society of Washington. As part of his curation work at the Smithsonian, Mason developed the culture area concept. Mason was anthropological editor of the American Naturalist and of the Standard Dictionary. He believed in Gustav Klemm's step-wise evolution of cultures and that technology was a marker of a culture's stage of development.
