Harry W. Harvey, Sr. (January 10, 1901 – November 27, 1985), was an American actor of theatre, film, and television.

Career[edit]

Born in Indian Territory, now Oklahoma, Harvey appeared in vaudeville and the Broadway stage but is best remembered as a character actor who appeared in more than three hundred films and episodes of television series. He co-starred in The Oregon Trail (1936), with John Wayne, Old Overland Trail (1953), Wyoming Renegades (1954), Ride Beyond Vengeance (1966) with Chuck Connors, and many other westerns.

Harvey was cast from 1951 to 1957 in the role of Sheriff Tom Blodgett in fifty-three episodes of The Roy Rogers Show. He played Mayor George Dixon of fictitious Yellowstone in twenty-one episodes from 1957 to 1959 of the syndicated western series, Man Without a Gun. He was cast in different roles in eleven episodes of The Lone Ranger from 1949 to 1955. In 1962, he appeared on the short-lived NBC drama series, It's a Man's World as the recurring character, Houghton Stott, owner of Stott's Service Station.

In the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, he guest-starred in such series as Branded, Lassie, Hazel, The Wild Wild West, Mannix, Alias Smith and Jones, Bonanza, and Columbo. His last appearance was in Adam-12 (1974) with Martin Milner.

Harvey was out on the road as a trombone player at age 17, was a boxer, performed in Vaudville with his wife Mabel Mason Harvey on bills with Harry Houdini, and was an avid Dodger fan. Harvey outlived his son, Harry Harvey Jr. (1929–1978), by some seven years. He and his son are interred at Pierce Brothers Valhalla Memorial Park in North Hollywood, California.[1]
