Henricus Antonius Cornelis Marie "Harrij" Notenboom (31 August 1926 – 9 August 2023) was a Dutch politician. He served as member of the House of Representatives from 1963 to 1979 and in the European Parliament from 1971 to 1984. Notenboom was a member of the Catholic People's Party and later the Christian Democratic Appeal when the former had merged into it in 1980.[1]

As financial specialist of the Catholic People's Party he was influential in the Nacht van Schmelzer [nl], which led to the fall of the Cals cabinet.[2] Notenboom criticized the budget as proposed by Cals.[3]


Notenboom was born in Roosendaal on 31 August 1926.[1] He was adjunct secretary of the Nederlandse Rooms-Katholieke Middenstandsbond from September 1952 to January 1956. He subsequently served as director of the Katholieke Limburgse Middenstandsbond until 1969.[1]

In 1988 he obtained his title of doctor in economic sciences with a thesis on budget law of the European Parliament.[4]

Notenboom was bijzonder hoogleraar [nl] (professor not paid by University funds) of problematics of small and medium-sized enterprises between 1991 and 1994 at Eindhoven University of Technology.[1]

Notenboom died on 9 August 2023, at the age of 96.[5]
