Leonora Jackson (1880-1969) was a female concert violinist who performed at venues around the world.

She was awarded the Mendelssohn State Prize by the Prussian government in 1898. In 1915 she married Dr. William Duncan McKim (1855-1935), a member of a wealthy Baltimore merchant family. Jackson and McKim traveled extensively and amassed a large art collection, large portions of which she donated to the Smithsonian and the Maryland Historical Society.
