James Beaumont Strachey (26 September 1887, London – 25 April 1967, High Wycombe) was a British psychoanalyst, and, with his wife Alix, a translator of Sigmund Freud into English. He is perhaps best known as the general editor of the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud...the international authority. James was brother of the Bloomsbury writer Lytton Strachey.

Rupert Brooke, one of Britain's best loved war poets, wrote homoerotic letters to James Strachey, they are notably affectionate and reflect the life of the times he was living in.
