Harold Gould through the years
Judge. General. Sheriff. Con man. Professor. Priest.
Schenectady native Harold Gould, who died Sept. 11 in California, played all those parts during a distinguished acting career. For example, casting directors must have seen a military presence in Gould. He was Col. Reed in “12 O’clock High,” Maj. Richardson in “Daniel Boone,” Capt. Crawford in “The Big Valley,” Gen. Weatherby in “I Dream of Jeannie” and Col. Enzio in “Garrison’s Gorillas.”
Fatherhood was a favorite role — for real. Gould and his wife, Lea, raised three children. Posted on September 20, 2010.
