Donald Alphonsus Campbell (1894–1963) was a Scottish prelate who served as the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Glasgow from 1945 to 1963.[1]

Born in Bohunhin, Glen Roy, Inverness-shire on 8 December 1894, he was ordained to the priesthood on 3 April 1920. He was appointed the Bishop of the Diocese of Argyll and the Isles by the Holy See on 5 October 1939, and consecrated to the Episcopate on 14 December 1939. The principal consecrator was Archbishop Andrew Thomas McDonald of Saint Andrews and Edinburgh, and the principal co-consecrators were Bishop George Henry Bennett of Aberdeen and Bishop William Henry Mellon of Galloway.[1]

Six years later, he was translated to the Metropolitan see of Glasgow as archbishop on 6 January 1945.[1] In 1952, Archbishop Campbell described Marshal Tito as a "modern Nero".[2] He attended the first session of the Second Vatican Council in 1962.[1]
