Elizabeth Harrison (February 21, 1897, Indianapolis, Indiana – December 25, 1955, New York City) was the third of three surviving children of the former U.S. President, Benjamin Harrison, and the only child of his second wife, Mary Scott Lord Dimmick.[1]

She graduated from New York University School of Law in 1919 and was admitted to the bar in Indiana and New York.

On April 6, 1921, Elizabeth Harrison married James Blaine Walker (January 20, 1889 - January 15, 1978), a grandnephew of Secretary of State, James G. Blaine, a member of her father's cabinet.

Their daughter, Jane Harrison Walker, married Newell Garfield, a grandson of Interior Secretary James Rudolph Garfield, and great-grandson of President James Garfield. Elizabeth Harrison was founder and publisher of "Cues on the News", an investment newsletter for women.
