Zeb Vance Walser (1863–1940) was an attorney and North Carolina politician. Named for Governor Zebulon B. Vance, Walser nevertheless became active in the Republican Party rather than Vance's Democrats.

Walser was admitted to the bar in 1886 and began practicing law in Lexington, North Carolina. He was elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives in 1888, and to the North Carolina Senate in 1890. In 1894, Walser was again elected to the state House, which elected him Speaker for one term after Republicans and Populists formed a majority.[1]

In 1896, Walser was elected North Carolina Attorney General. In 1900, he became official reporter for the North Carolina Supreme Court.

In 1912, Walser served as state campaign manager for Theodore Roosevelt's unsuccessful presidential campaign.
