Thomas Whiteside (April 21, 1918 – October 6, 1997) was an American journalist.
A journalist is a person who collects, writes, or distributes news or other current information to the public. A journalist's work is called journalism. A journalist can work with general issues or specialize in certain issues. However, most journalists tend to specialize, and by cooperating with other journalists, produce journals that span many topics. For example, a sports journalist covers news within the world of sports, but this journalist may be a part of a newspaper that covers many different topics.

His work appeared in the Newsweek, The New Republic, and The New Yorker.He was instrumental in publicizing the damage of Agent Orange. He died in West Cornwall, Connecticut in 1997.
