Herman Lewis McInnes (also Hermon McInnes or Herman McInnis) (born October 13, 1862 - died July 1923) was a politician in Alberta, Canada and a municipal councillor in Edmonton. Herman McInnes was born in Saint John, New Brunswick and educated in Fredericton. He worked as a druggist for five years in that city and in Winnipeg after graduating high school. He studied Medicine at the Manitoba Medical College - now part of the University of Manitoba - from which he graduated in 1886. He served as an assistant surgeon during the North-West Rebellion. He came to Edmonton in 1886 and took up the practice of medicine before going to Europe for further study from 1889 until 1892. He resumed his practice upon his return and also founded McInnes Lumber Company in 1902. He was elected to Edmonton City Council for a one year term as an alderman in the 1907 municipal election, in which he finished fifth out of twelve candidates. He was re-elected to two year terms in the 1908 election (finishing third of thirteen candidates) and the 1910 election (finishing third of eleven candidates), but the latter term was truncated when Edmonton amalgamated with Strathcona and elections were held for an entirely new council. These elections saw McInnes re-elected for a one year term, but he resigned May 7, 1912. That same year he retired from the practice of medicine to look after his other interests, which included the lumber company (which he sold in 1914) and prospecting for oil. He was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Masonic Order, the Conservative Party, and the Edmonton Philharmonic Society.
