Harry Francis Vincent Edward (15 April 1898 – 8 July 1973) was a British runner. He competed in 100 and 200 m 1920 Summer Olympics and won bronze medals in both events. He injured himself during the 200 m final and therefore withdrew from the 4×100 m relay. Domestically Edward won the AAA championships in the 100 yd and 220 yd in 1920-1922, and in 1922 also took the 440 yd title.[1]

Edward was raised in Germany and immigrated to the United Kingdom during World War I. He later moved to New York, where he worked in public relations at the United Nations.[1]
