Harrison L. Davies (c.1874-c.1927), a bookkeeper, was a part-time magician and escape artist in Detroit, Michigan.
Davies began working magic around 1891, learning some of his first tricks and sleights from Alexander Herrmann.
The famous writer Edgar A. Guest published a poem entitled "To Howard Thurston and Harrison L. Davies" in The Detroit Free Press on May 18, 1926. It was reprinted, as a tribute to the "late" Harrison Davies, in the Linking Ring (September 1928).
