Timothy J. Corbett (June 10, 1858-July 20, 1939) was the first Roman Catholic Bishop of Crookston, from 1910-1938.

Born in Mendota, Minnesota, Corbett was ordained on June 12, 1886 for what is now the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. On April 9, 1910, Pope Pius X appointed Corbett Bishop of Crookston and he was ordained bishop on May 19, 1910; he retired on June 25, 1938.

A former chancellor and pastor in the Diocese of Duluth, Corbett was able to fund the construction of more than 50 churches and 12 schools during his 28 years as a bishop, by means of letters soliciting funds. John Hubert Peschges succeeded Corbett on November 16, 1938, following Corbett's resignation on August 6, 1938.
