Ellis Stanley Joseph (Ellis S. Joseph) was a collector and trader in wildlife in the early part of the 20th century. He was sometimes referred to as "Stanley Ellis Joseph" and also sometimes as "Ellis Josephs"

Animal dealer Ellis S. Joseph (born in Australia ca. 1872 – 1938) got into the business at age 18 around 1890. He is probably best known for bringing Australian animals to America, including some of the most difficult of all to maintain, notably the koala and duck billed platypus.

In 1923 Ellis Joseph made New York his headquarters and in 1927 he moved to the Bronx where, for a time, he maintained a menagerie at Conner Street and Haller Avenue. He was unmarried and retired from business in 1933.
