Charles Hartman McCauley (born February 15, 1893 in Chicago, Illinois; died June 15, 1970 in Birmingham) was a notable architect and founder of the firm Charles H. McCauley Associates.

Charles was the son of Charles H. and Mary Grace Shafer McCauley of Chicago. He studied architecture at the University of Illinois. He married the former Winnie Mae Stevenson and moved to Birmingham in 1919. He worked for William Welton and built a residence for himself on Lakeview Circle before opening his own practice in 1925.

He and Winnie Mae had a daughter, Virginia in 1923, but were later divorced. In 1933 two lots McCauley owned in Ensley were sold at a sheriff's auction to satisfy his debts.

He married the former Naomi Horton of Shelby County on November 27, 1939 and had two more daughters, Mimi and Charlotte. He moved from Lakeview Circle to another residence on Country Club Boulevard.

McCauley died at a local hospital from heart disease in 1970. He was buried at Elmwood Cemetery. His firm continued to operate.
