William R. Walker & Son (1881–1938) was an American architectural firm in Providence, Rhode Island. It included partners William Russell Walker (1830–1905), William Howard Walker (1865–1922), and later, William Russell Walker II (1889–1936).

William R. Walker began his architectural practice in 1864. Between 1876 and 1881 he partnered with Thomas J. Gould in Walker & Gould. In 1881, the two parted ways to start independent firms.[1] Walker took his son, William H. Walker into partnership to form the firm of William R. Walker & Son. William R. Walker died in 1905. William H. Walker died in 1922, at which point his son, William R. Walker, Jr., took charge until his own death in 1936. The firm was dissolved the next year, in 1937.[2]

Throughout the firm's history, it was known for its educational buildings. All of the Walkers had important political connections, enabling them to obtain the commissions for these and other civic structures. The part of the Walker legacy that is most commonly passed over is their residential and commercial commissions. Prominent commercial commissions include Providence's Lederer Building (1897), Attleboro's Bronson Building (1903), and the Washington Building (1921) in Providence.
