Hildred Blewett (1911–2004) was a Canadian accelerator physicist.


Blewett was born on May 28, 1911 in Toronto, Ontario. She started her career at General Electric, where she devised a technique for controlling smoke pollution from factory chimneys in the 1940s. She and her husband John Blewett were part of the initial team at Brookhaven National Laboratory. She then worked at Argonne National Laboratory, then CERN.

Following her retirement from CERN in 1977, Blewett retired to Vancouver. She died on June 13, 2004. She left much of her estate to the American Physical Society, founding the Blewett Scholarship for women physicists who return to the field after a break in their careers.
