Don Carlos Harvey (December 12, 1911 – April 23, 1963) was an American television and film actor.


Born in Council Grove in Morris County in east central Kansas, Harvey began his acting career by performing on radio and in tent shows and repertory companies with his wife, the former Eugenia (Jean) Bartness (1900–1966), who was eleven years his senior. In Hollywood, he co-starred on a radio program with Hedda Hopper. In 1949, he contracted with Columbia Pictures and played in the serials, The Adventures of Sir Galahad and Batman and Robin (both 1949), and Atom Man vs. Superman (1950).[1]

Harvey appeared in 180 films and television programs between 1945 and 1963. During the late 1940s alone, he appeared in fifteen films and television programs. Harvey's second film and his first credited role were Dragnet (1947), starring Henry Wilcoxon and Robert Kent, and the exploitation film, She Shoulda Said No! (1949), respectively.

Harvey died in 1963 at the age of fifty-one of a heart attack in Studio City, California.[1]
