Viola Gerard Garvin (1898–1969) was an English poet and editor at the The Observer. Some of her works include Dedication and The House of Cæsar.
Robert E. Howard paraphrased a part from Viola Garvin's The House of Cæsar for his suicide note.
Constance Savery, Garvin's classmate at Somerville College, Oxford, records that Garvin died on Jan. [blank] 1969. Savery remembered Garvin's "dark haunting eyes" and recalled that "she shone like a planet at Somerville. No glitter, just 'the soft journey that a planet goes'."
