Edward Doane Swift (24 December 1870 – 25 September 1935, Buffalo, New York) was an American astronomer. He was the son of the astronomer Lewis Swift.[1] Like his father Lewis, he was a founder member of the British Astronomical Association in 1890, resigning 1892.

His father discovered many comets, and Edward Swift followed in his footsteps by co-discovering the periodic comet 54P/de Vico-Swift-NEAT.
