Harrison Allen (1841–1897) was an American physician and anatomist, born in Philadelphia. He graduated from the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania in 1861, and in 1862 became a surgeon in the United States Army and served until the conclusion of the Civil War in 1865. Doctor Allen should not be confused with the Union Army officer who was colonel of the 151st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment, who was mustered out July 31, 1863 and later was awarded the grade of brevet brigadier general.
In addition to many papers contributed to medical journals, he authored a number of books:
- Outlines of Comparative Anatomy and Medical Zoölogy (1867)
- Studies in the Facial Region (1874)
- An Analysis of the Life Form in Art (1875)
- System of Human Anatomy (1880)
