Arthur Carter Denison (November 10, 1861 – May 27, 1942) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Denison received a B.A. from University of Michigan in 1883. He was in private practice in Grand Rapids, Michigan from 1883 to 1910.

On January 17, 1910, Denison was nominated by President William H. Taft to a seat on the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan vacated by Loyal Edwin Knappen. Denison was confirmed by the United States Senate on January 31, 1910, and received his commission the same day.

Just over a year later, on February 25, 1911, Taft nominated Denison to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit vacated by Henry Franklin Severens. Denison was again confirmed by the United States Senate on March 2, 1911, and received his commission the same day. He served until December 31, 1931, resigning at the age of 70. He then returned to private practice, in Cleveland, Ohio, from 1932 to 1942.

He died in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
