Gould and his wife, Lea, act in “See How They Run” in Lynchburg, Va., shortly after both left Cornell University. Gould was a professor of speech and drama at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College at the time.
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.
