Hiram Sherman (February 11, 1908 – April 11, 1989) was an American actor.

Sherman was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He made his Broadway debut as a playwright with the short-lived comedy Too Much Party in 1934.[1] The farce, directed by William Friedlander, opened at the Theatre Masque on 5 March 1934 and closed after only eight performances.[2] It proved to be his sole attempt at writing. Two years later he made his first appearance as an actor in Horse Eats Hat. Additional theatre credits include Julius Caesar, Very Warm for May, Cyrano de Bergerac, Boyd's Daughter (which he directed as well), Mary, Mary, Two's Company, and How Now, Dow Jones, winning the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for the latter two.[1]

Sherman's many television credits include such early anthology series as Kraft Television Theatre, Studio One, The Alcoa Hour, and Hallmark Hall of Fame and a regular role on The Tammy Grimes Show. His feature films included The Solid Gold Cadillac, Mary, Mary, in which he reprised his role in the play, and Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feeling So Sad.[1]

Sherman died of a stroke in Springfield, Illinois.[1]
