Irving B. Harris (August 4, 1910- September 25, 2004) was an American businessman and philanthropist. He co-founded with his brother the Toni Home Permanent Company, which was sold to the Gillette Safety Razor Co. in 1948.

Born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota, much of his charitable work was done in Chicago, Illinois, but he also donated substantially to the arts in Aspen, Colorado. Harris contributed most of his money to programs for children and the arts such as the Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance. He attended Yale University and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1931. In 1986, Harris gave a donation that established The Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies at The University of Chicago. Mr. Harris gave the lead gift in 1954 to create public television station WTTW in Chicago - he later served as the station's Chairman of the Board. His philanthropy created several non-profits in Chicago - Family Focus (with Bernice Weissbourd) and the Ounce of Prevention Fund are "children" of Irving Harris, as is Erikson Institute, the graduate school in child development he helped found in 1966.

Harris published a book, Children in Jeopardy, in 1992.

Harris had a wife named Joan; two daughters, Roxanne Harris Frank and Virginia Harris Polsky; and a son, William Harris.
