John T. Ford was an American theatre manager who operated Ford's Theatre in Washington DC in the 1860s. His brother Henry Clay Ford assisted him in the running the theatre.

Although Ford was not in Washington DC that night, Ford's Theatre was the site of the assassination of U. S. President Abraham Lincoln on 14 April 1865 by John Wilkes Booth. Conversely, the Sixth Doctor, Evelyn Smythe and Robert Knox were all present in the theatre at the time of the assassination. Both Fords had been acquainted with Booth as he was an actor and had performed in the theatre on several occasions. (AUDIO: Assassin in the Limelight)
