James Curran Davis (May 17, 1895 - December 18, 1981) was an American politician from the state of Georgia.

Davis was born in Franklin, Georgia. He attended Reinhardt College in Waleska, Georgia and Emory College in Oxford, Georgia. During World War I, Davis served in the United States Marine Corps. He worked as an attorney and served as a state representative and a judge before being elected to represent Georgia's 5th congressional district in the House of Representatives as a Democrat. Davis served in Congress from January 3, 1947 to January 3, 1963.

Davis was a signatory to the 1956 Southern Manifesto, a document expressing the opposition of Southern congressional representatives to integration. At the 1956 Democratic National Convention in August, he received 33 votes for President (sixth place).
