Major General Edwin Anderson Walker, sometimes known as Ted Walker November 10, 1909 – October 31, 1993, was a United States Army officer who fought in World War II and the Korean War, reaching the rank of Major General.

He was known for his ultra-conservative political views and was criticized by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower for promoting a personal political stand while in uniform. He resigned his commission after being publicly and formally admonished by President John F. Kennedy JFK for insulting Eleanor Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman in print.

He was an attempted assassination target of Lee Harvey Oswald on April 10, 1963.
