Harry Morgan, Portrayed Sgt. Bible in Strategic Air Command, Has Passed Away

I was saddened to learn of Harry Morgan’s passing away, which was reported on The New York Times here. He is well known as Colonel Potter on M*A*S*H and Sgt. Joe Friday on Dragnet, but I like to think of him as the lowly Sgt. Bible in Strategic Air Command (According to this website, Morgan and Stewart were in eight movies together!). Notably, his character gives Jimmy Stewart’s Lt. Col. Robert “Dutch” Holland a tour of their B-36. Morgan will be missed.

*Thanks to Doug Davis for turning me on to this terrific Cold War film.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
