Edward Everett Denison (August 28, 1873 – June 17, 1953) was a U.S. Representative from Illinois.

Born in Marion, Illinois, Denison attended the public schools. He was graduated from Baylor University, Waco, Texas, in 1895, from Yale University, in 1896, and from Columbian University (now George Washington University), Washington, D.C., in 1899. He was admitted to the bar in 1899 and commenced practice in Marion, Illinois, in 1900. He engaged in the banking business for one year.

Denison was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-fourth and to the seven succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1915-March 3, 1931). He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1930 to the Seventy-second Congress and for election in 1932 to the Seventy-third Congress.

Le 2 avril 1917, il permet à Anatole Le Braz, originaire de Bretagne écrivain, conférencier, professeur de français et de celtique à l'Université de Rennes et chargé des fêtes du bicentenaire de la création de la Nouvelle-Orléans, d'assister à la demande de déclaration de guerre du Président Woodrow Wilson devant le Congrès des Etats-Unis. Le Braz explique que Denison est passionné par l'ouvrage "Pêcheur d'Islande", de Pierre Loti, lui aussi de Bretagne. C'est dans cette région particulière de France, au port de Brest que l'USS Leviathan débarquera les soldats américains de la première guerre mondiale.


He resumed the general practice of law in Marion, Illinois. He was an unsuccessful candidate for circuit judge of the first judicial circuit of Illinois in 1939. He died in Carbondale, Illinois on June 17, 1953. He was interred in Maplewood Cemetery in Marion.
