Howard Kolls Judson (born February 16, 1926) is an American former professional baseball player. He was a right-handed pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1948 to 1954 for the Chicago White Sox and Cincinnati Redlegs. Altogether, the 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m), 195 lb (88 kg) hurler played 14 seasons (1946–1959) of professional baseball, including minor league service.

Judson lost 37 of his 54 Major League decisions, for a winning percentage of only .315. In 1949, he lost 14 of his 15 decisions for the sixth-place White Sox, and he never posted a winning record in the Majors. In 207 MLB games played, 48 as a starting pitcher, he surrendered 619 hits and 319 bases on balls in 615 innings of work, with 204 strikeouts. However, he did have some success in the minors, winning 16 games (losing eight) for the 1947 Waterloo White Hawks of the Class B Illinois-Indiana-Iowa League, and fashioning a perfect 11–0 mark for the 1953 Tulsa Oilers of the Double-A Texas League.

Judson attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
