Byron Morrow (September 8, 1911 – May 11, 2006) was an American television and film actor, born in Chicago, Illinois.

His television work ran from Peter Gunn in 1957 to Father Dowling Mysteries in 1991. With white hair and patrician looks, Morrow strongly resembled Gen. William Westmoreland, who commanded U.S. troops in Vietnam in the 1960s. Morrow mostly played authority figures, often in uniform.

He made seven appearances as a judge in CBS's Perry Mason and played real-life Admiral Chester Nimitz in the pilot episode of NBC's Baa Baa Black Sheep, starring Robert Conrad.

In 1961 and 1962, Morrow was cast as Captain Keith Gregory in the episodes "No Fat Cops" and "The Deadlier Sex" of the ABC crime drama The New Breed, starring Leslie Nielsen.

He appeared in two episodes of the original series of NBC's Star Trek - in Amok Time as Admiral Komack, and in For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky as an unnamed admiral. This was the first appearance of an admiral in the original series.
