- Mary Proctor (1862–September 11, 1957) was an American astronomer. She was the daughter of Mary and Richard Proctor.

- Added to Named Lunar Formations (1935) at request of IAU Commission 17 (Whitaker, p 229).
- This is a miscarriage of justice - her father Richard Proctor was a great popularizer of the Moon and the crater should commemorate him as well. - tychocrater Jul 22, 2007
- Since 1973, the father, whose classic book The Moon: Her Motions, Aspect, Scenery, and Physical Condition is available for free download from Google books, has been commemorated by a 168 km crater on Mars. Several of Mary Proctors books for children are available as well. - Jim Mosher
