USS Alfred Wolf (DE-544) was a proposed World War II United States Navy John C. Butler-class destroyer escort that was never completed.

The name Alfred Wolf was assigned to the ship on 26 October 1943. Her keel was laid at the Boston Navy Yard in Boston, Massachusetts, on 9 December 1943.

Due to changes in World War II ship construction priorities, the construction of Alfred Wolf was suspended on 10 June 1944 and cancelled altogether on 5 September 1944. Subsequently, the incomplete ship was scrapped on the building ways.
