Florence Barker (November 22, 1891 – February 15, 1913) was an American stage and silent film actress from Los Angeles.

She began in amateur theatre in her early teens,[1] and her professional debut came in the Ferris Company's production of The Altar of Friendship in Los Angeles in 1907.[2] By age 18, she was playing lead roles at the Grand Theatre in Los Angeles.[1]

At around this time she started acting in motion pictures and would go on to appear in at least sixty-three film productions before dying of pneumonia in Los Angeles at the age of twenty-one.[3][4]
