Winifred Goldring (1888-1971) was an American geologist and paleontologist who worked at the New York State Museum for over 30 years. She joined the museum in 1914 as a scientific expert in paleontology and continued to serve in diverse capacities until she retired in 1954, having earned the distinction of being the museum's first female curator and the first woman to serve as State Paleontologist of New York from 1939-1954.
