Harold Raymond "Harry" Edwards (10 January 1927 – 26 June 2012) was an Australian politician. Born in Sydney, he received his PhD from Nuffield College, Oxford, and was subsequently Professor of Economic Theory at the University of Sydney from 1962 to 1965. In 1966 he became Professor of Economics at Macquarie University, a position he held until 1972. Among his students was John Hewson. In 1972 he was selected as the Liberal candidate for the very safe Australian House of Representatives seat of Berowra, which he won. He held the seat until his retirement in 1993. Edwards was the only person to be on the Coalition front bench during the Labor governments of both Gough Whitlam and Bob Hawke, without holding ministerial position during the intervening Liberal government of Malcolm Fraser.
