William H. Morrison (fl. c. 1880 - 1910) was a law book specialist, publisher, and stationer active in Washington D. C. during the latter part of the 19th century and early 20th century. He often published with 'O.H. Morrison,' presumably his brother, with whom he inherited the works of William M. Morrison, presumably his father. The Morrisons were best known for their Morrison's stranger's guide to the City of Washington and its vicinity, published between the 1840s and 1890s.

Morrison was described thus by his contemporaries:

W. H. Morrison is, in the usual term, a hustler, being his own solicitor. By scouting surrounding towns is a fast building up a good trade. His long experiences in the line and extensive acquaintance give him at once a good position in the trade. -The American Stationer Feb 4, 1892.
Morrison printed maps and Guides to Washington D.C. as well acted as a bespoken stationer and a government printer. Among other things, Morrison was a strong advocate of paper currency - no doubt hoping to get an edge on the business of printing money. He maintained a storefront at 475 Pennsylvania Ave, N.W.
