Anne Kelly Knowles (born 1957) is an American geographer and a specialist in Historical GIS. After teaching for over ten years at Middlebury College in Vermont as a professor of geography, she is now a professor of history at University of Maine.

She received her MA and PhD from University of Wisconsin–Madison. Her first book, ''Calvinists Incorporated Welsh Immigrants on Ohio’s Industrial Frontier'' examined the influence of immigrants’ traditions and social values on their economic behavior during the industrialization of their new region as workers and investors in Welsh-owned charcoal iron companies.
