James Arthur Ewing (October 1, 1916 - unknown) was the 40th Governor of American Samoa. He took the office on November 28, 1952 and resigned just over four months later, on March 4, 1953. He was appointed by President Harry S. Truman.
In July 1956, his wife, former model Bernice Ewing, sued him for divorce on grounds of extreme cruelty. A year later, a judge increased the payments but it was stated Ewing's whereabouts were unknown; he had last been heard from in Fiji in January of that year, when payments abruptly stopped.
