The SS Henry R. Schoolcraft (Hull Number 2132) was a Liberty ship built in the United States during World War II.

Named after Henry R. Schoolcraft, an American geographer, geologist, and ethnologist, the ship was laid down by Permanente Metals in their Richmond, California Yard #2. on December 11, 1943, then launched on December 30, 1943. The vessel was operated under a USAT (United States Army Transport) identification, meaning that it was under the control of the Army Transportation Service. In 1947, the ship was sold into private ownership. However, in 1967, the ship was wrecked and subsequently scrapped.
