Question: Is the photo of Colonel Potter's wife on M*A*S*H really Harry Morgan's wife? If not, do you know who she is? Thanks. Jennifer, Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands
Televisionary: No, it wasn't and yes, I do. The photo of Mildred Potter, Col. Sherman Potter's beloved wife, was actually a shot of actress Spring Byington, with whom Morgan worked on CBS's December Bride from 1954 to 1960. Byington played the lead on that series, which featured Morgan as neighbor Pete Porter before his character got his own spin-off, Pete and Gladys (1960-62).
