Joseph Warwick Bigger (11 September 1891 – 17 August 1951) was an Irish politician and academic. He was an independent member of Seanad Éireann from 1947 to 1951. He was first elected to the Seanad at a by-election on 22 November 1947 by the University of Dublin constituency.[1] The vacancy was caused by the appointment of T. C. Kingsmill Moore as a judge of the High Court. He was re-elected at the 1948 election. He did not contest the 1951 election.[1]

He was Professor of bacteriology and preventive medicine at the University of Dublin.[2]

His father Sir Edward Coey Bigger was a Senator from 1925 to 1936. The younger Bigger was a nephew of Roger Casement.[3]
