Arthur Earl "Dutch" Wilson (December 11, 1885 – June 12, 1960) was a professional baseball player. He played all or part of fourteen seasons in Major League Baseball, primarily as a catcher.

Wilson spent most of his career as a backup, although he was the starting catcher for the Federal League's Chicago Whales during their two-season tenure in 1914-15. He was the catcher for Cubs pitcher Hippo Vaughn during the "double no-hitter" game in 1917. The Cubs lost the game on an error by Wilson in the 10th inning.
