Sherman Foote Denton (September 24, 1856 – June 24, 1937) was an American naturalist, illustrator, specimen collector, inventor, writer, and entrepreneur. Along with his brothers Shelley Wright and Robert Winsford, he started Denton Brothers Butterflies Company, which sold mounted butterfly specimens. Individual butterflies were mounted on plaster under a glass frame, a technique that he patented and known as "Denton mounts".
