Eric Valentine Gordon (1896–1938) was a philologist who is known for his compiling of many Germanic texts in their original language into book format. He was born on Valentine's Day, 1896, in Salmon Arm, British Columbia.

He was educated at Victoria College and McGill University.
He was also one of the eight Rhodes Scholars of Canada, and attended University College at Oxford University , and later taught at Leeds University (1922–1931) and Manchester University (1932–1938). One of his prime works, published first in 1927 and then frequently reprinted over the years, was "An Introduction to Old Norse." Gordon worked with J. R. R. Tolkien several times on various scholastic works and published books, including A Middle English Vocabulary and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, while Tolkien was teaching at Leeds University. After Gordon came to Leeds, Tolkien wrote is his diary "Eric Valentine Gordon has come and got firmly established and is my devoted friend and pal."
