Cliford H. Pope (1899-1974) was a noted American herpetologist. Shortly after his graduation from the University of Virginia, Pope went to the Tropical Research Station at British Guiana, maintained by William Beebe.

Pope mastered the Chinese language and made a total of eight expeditions in Chinese terriroty prior to 1930.[1]

In 1927, the Boy Scouts of America made Pope an Honorary Scout, a new category of Scout created that same year.
