William Crosson Feazel (June 10, 1895 - March 16, 1965) was a United States Senator from Louisiana. Born near Farmerville in Union Parish, he attended the public schools and engaged as an independent oil and gas producer.

Feazel was a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1932 to 1936. He was appointed by Governor Earl Kemp Long on May 18, 1948, as a Democrat to the U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of John H. Overton. Feazel served from May 18 to December 30, 1948. He was not a candidate for election to the vacancy in 1948 and resumed the oil and gas business in Monroe and Shreveport. He was a resident of West Monroe, and died in Shreveport in 1965; interment was in Hasley Cemetery, West Monroe. His seat went to his fellow Democrat, Russell B. Long, the son of Huey P. Long, Jr.
