Harry Rust Virgin (1854-?) was an American politician from Maine. Virgin, a Republican, served three terms in the Maine Legislature, including a term as the Maine Senate President. He was born in Norway, Maine and lived in Portland, Maine while in the legislature.

Virgin was first elected to Portland Cit Council. In 1898, he was elected to the Maine House of Representatives. Two years later, he was elected to the Maine Senate. Following re-election to that body in 1902, he was chosen Senate President for his third and final term. His father, William Wirt Virgin, also served as Senate President. The William and Henry Virgin are the only father-son duo to both hold that position in Maine history.[1]
