Charles Martin was a North American journalist.
In the 1930s he was a foreign correspondent for the Burgoyne Herald who covered the United States of Mexico. Martin was present during the inauguration of Mexican President Alvin Silva on 23 April 1932 when Silva spoke in his inaugural address of foreigners "who would threaten our nation. Even now, Hawaii is in danger of attack." Writing in the Herald on 17 July 1936, Martin warned, "The voice was Silva's but the words sounded suspiciously like those of El Jefe."
