William Morgan (c. 1774-75 - c. 1826) was an American stonemason and shopkeeper who threatened to publish an exposé of Freemasonry and subsequently disappeared, believed by many to have been killed or been bribed into leaving the country. Morgan's presumed murder by New York-based Masons inspired a widespread movement of anti-Masonry in the United States, leading to the formation of the Anti-Masonic Party.
