William Stiles Bennet was a U.S. Representative from New York. He was the father of Augustus Witschief Bennet, who also served as a U.S. Representative.

Bennet was born in Port Jervis, NY on November 9, 1870. He attended the common schools, graduated from Port Jervis Academy in 1889, and received his law degree from Albany Law School in 1892.

Bennet was a lawyer in private practice, an official reporter of the Orange County Board of Supervisors (1892-1893), a member of the New York State Assembly (1901-1902), a Justice of the Municipal Court of New York City (1903), a member of the United States Immigration Commission (1907-1910), and a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1908 and 1916. He served as a Republican in the 59th through 61st Congresses (March 4, 1905-March 3, 1911) and was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1910. He was elected to the 64th Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of U.S. Representative Joseph A. Goulden (November 2, 1915-March 3, 1917), but was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection to the 65th Congress in 1916. Bennet served as the official parliamentarian of the Republican National Convention at Chicago in 1916 and was a United States delegate to the Seventeenth International Congress Against Alcoholism held in Copenhagen in 1923.

From 1920 to 1933 Bennet served as General Counsel to the Edward Hines Lumber Company. During the later 1930s and 1940s he served as a lobbyist and advocate for the lumber industry. He was an unsuccessful candidate for election to the 75th Congress in 1936. That same year Bennet also unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for Vice President. He received the nomination in the Oregon primary due to his connection with the lumber industry in that state, but by the time of the national Republican Convention he was no longer considered a viable candidate and lost the nomination to Frank Knox of Illinois. He served as a delegate to the New York State Constitutional Convention in 1938. He ran unsuccessfully in a special election in 1944 to fill a vacancy in the 78th Congress.

Bennet died on December 1, 1962, in Central Valley, NY. His ashes are interred in Laurel Grove Cemetery in Port Jervis, NY.
