Austin Frederic Harrison (1873-1928) was a British journalist.

Austin Harrison was son of the positivists Frederic Harrison and Ethel Bertha Harrison (1851-1916). After being tutored by George Gissing, he was educated at St Paul's School and Harrow School. He worked for "The Times" and the "Manchester Guardian" before Alfred Harmsworth installed him as political editor of "The Observer" newspaper from 1904 to 1908. In 1909 he became editor of the "English Review", which he bought out in 1915 and sold in 1923. He helped to found International PEN in 1921.
