Dana Walden was a popular American Chautauqua magician during the first years of the 20th century.

Though he presented an act filled with magic effects, his favorite was Chapeaugraphy, an act which involved telling a story and portraying the characters by making different hats out of a circle of felt.

Most of Walden's programs were presented for Chautauqua. He was represented almost exclusively by the Alkahest Bureau, who played up his youth in the publicity materials.
