George Allen "Iron" Davis (March 9, 1890 – June 4, 1961), was a professional baseball pitcher. He played all or part of four seasons in Major League Baseball from 1912 to 1915. He played for the Boston Braves and New York Highlanders.
On September 9, 1914, Davis threw a no-hitter for the Boston Braves against the Philadelphia Phillies.
From 1918 to 1919, Davis served in the U.S. Army. After his military service, he settled in Buffalo, New York and took philosophy, comparative religion and astronomy classes at University at Buffalo. For thirty years he conducted astronomy classes at the Buffalo Museum of Science, where he was also a trustee.
From 1928 to 1934, Davis was a member-at-large of the Buffalo Common Council, and sought the Republican nomination for mayor in 1934 unsuccessfully. He practiced law under a family firm before joining what would become Hodgson Russ law firm.
