William Peter Sprague (May 21, 1827 – March 3, 1899) was a businessman, banker, politician, and a two-term U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Sprague was born near Morgan County, Ohio, and attended the country schools. He engaged in mercantile pursuits when quite young and continued in active business until 1864.

He was a member of the Ohio Senate from 1860 to 1863 during the American Civil War. He moved to McConnelsville, Ohio, in 1866 and engaged in banking. He was elected as a Republican to the Forty-second and Forty-third Congresses (March 4, 1871 – March 3, 1875). Sprague was not a candidate for renomination in 1874 and subsequently resumed the banking business
