Kathleen Howard (July 17, 1884 - April 15, 1956) was a former Canadianmarker-born opera singer and magazine editor who played character roles in US films from the mid-1930s through the 1940s. She created the role of Zita in Giacomo Puccini's Gianni Schicchi at the Metropolitan Opera in 1918.

Howard appears to have not made any opera recordings for the phonograph or Victrola companies of the acoustical era such as did her contemporaries Geraldine Farrar and Mary Garden. Her voice however survives in the many Hollywood comedies she made throughout the 1930s and 1940s.
