Earle Harold Munn, also known as E. Harold Munn (November 29, 1903 - June 6, 1992) was a United States politician and a longtime leader of Prohibition Party, for which he was Presidential and Vice-Presidential nominee.

Born in Bay Village, Dover Bay, Ohio, he was involved in the Prohibition Party and ran for the first time from its ticket in 1941, when he sought a seat in Michigan's board of regents.

He quickly rose in his party and became state chair in 1947. He ran twice for Governor of Michigan, in 1952 and 1954 (losing both times).

Elected national party chairman without opposition in 1955, he was nominated for Vice President on the ticket headed by Rutherford Decker.

Munn succeeded Decker as a presidential nominee and appeared on ballots in 1964, 1968 and 1972.
