Friedrich Wilhelm Putzger ( 10 Januar 1849 in Siebenlehn - 3 August 1913 in Plauen) was a German teacher who updated the Physikalisch-statistischer Atlas des deutschen Reiches (Richard Andree, Oskar Peschel, Verlag Velhagen & Klasing) and in 1877 in Leipzig first published the F. W. Putzgers Historischer Schul-Atlas intended for use in schools.

Due to its low price, it was a success, and still common in schools. The current edition is Putzger - Atlas und Chronik zur Weltgeschichte. Cornelsen, Berlin 2002,
