Television actor Harry Morgan (born April 10, 1915) was raised in Muskegon and graduated from Muskegon High School in 1933, where he achieved distinction as a statewide debating champion. He originally aspired to a law degree, but began acting while a junior at the University of Chicago in 1935. Morgan is perhaps best-known as Colonel Sherman T. Potter on M*A*S*H (1975-83), Pete Porter on both Pete and Gladys (1960-62) and December Bride (1954-1959), Detective Bill Gannon on Dragnet (1967-70), and Amos Coogan on Hec Ramsey (1972-74). The last name of Morgan's character on MASH (Col. Sherman T. Potter) was suggested by Morgan in honor of his high school coach, Harry Potter.
