Henry Miller Morris (17 December 1919 – 13 March 1993) was a Scottish footballer who played for East Fife, Dundee United and the Scotland national team as a centre forward.

Morris, a Dundonian, joined East Fife from Dundee Violet in 1946, having previously played with another junior Dundee side, Lochee Central, during the War. He scored 60 goals during the 1947-48 League campaign as East Fife won the Second Division title.[1] That same season he also helped his side claim the League Cup, the first time it had been won by a side out with the top flight. He won a further League cup with East Fife in 1950 before moving to Dundee United in 1953, where he retired.[1]

Morris scored a hat-trick in his only Scotland cap, an 8-2 win over Ireland in October 1949.
