Earl Hawley Robinson (July 2, 1910 – July 20, 1991) was a singer-songwriter and composer from Seattle, Washington. Robinson is remembered for his music, including the songs "Joe Hill", "Black and White", and the cantata "Ballad for Americans," which expressed his left-leaning political views. He was a member of the Communist Party in the 1930s. In addition, he wrote many popular songs and music for Hollywood films.
The jazz clarinettist Perry Robinson is his son.
