Wallace Andre "Shorty" Barr (November 30, 1897 – April 26, 1957) was a professional American football player in the National Football League (NFL) for the Racine Legion and the Milwaukee Badgers. He was also a player-coach for the NFL's renamed Racine Tornadoes in 1926.

On November 25, 1923, as the quarterback for the Legion, Barr was tackled twice in the end zone during a game against the Chicago Cardinals causing the Cards to register a pair of safeties in the only four-point game in NFL history. The Legion won the game though 10–4. In 1924 Barr punted 40 times for Racine and averaged 65 yards per punt.
