Byron Morrow (September 8, 1911 – May 11, 2006) was an American television and film actor.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Morrow served his country in World War II, performing in theater productions during his tour of duty. He began appearing in film and television in the late 1950s and amassed some 200 appearances in a career spanning the next 35 years. Morrow's television work ran from Peter Gunn in the late 1950s 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 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 Admiral Westervliet (per the episode's closing credits; the name is omitted from dialogue). This was the first appearance of an admiral in the original series.
In 1973, he had the role of Admiral Phillips in the ABC-TV movie The President's Plane is Missing.
Morrow died at the age of 94 in 2006 in Woodland Hills, California.
