Milton Ager (October 6, 1893 - May 6, 1979) was an American pianist and composer. He was the father of columnist Shana Alexander.

Ager was born in Chicago, Illinois, the sixth of nine children. Leaving school with only three years of formal high-school education, he taught himself to play the piano and embarked on a career as a musician. After spending time on the Vaudeville circuit, he moved to Chicago to write music for the growing movie industry. During World War I he served as a morale officer.

Milton Ager also was a music publisher in partnership with his frequent musical collaborator, lyricist Jack Yellen. He moved to Hollywood where he made a good living writing songs for film. On his passing, Milton Ager was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Milton Ager was inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame in 1979.
