Walter Hamilton Seward (13 October 1896 – 14 September 2008) was a validated American supercentenarian.


Walter Seward was born in Ohio, USA, on 13 October 1896. He was, at the time of his death, the third-oldest verified man living in the United States, the sixth-oldest man in the world one of the 30 oldest living people and was the verified oldest recognized living person in New Jersey. He is also the 36th-oldest man ever.

Seward was well-known before his centenarian years as he was an accomplished lawyer.
