Mini Bio (1)
Actor. Born in Franklin, Indiana on December 28, 1923, he was raised in Texas and went to college at Indiana University. There, on a speech and drama scholarship, he began to act and perform however this was interrupted by being called into the service. In World War II where he saw action overseas, he was befriended by actor Melvyn Douglas who led his division. With such encouragement, as well as meeting and becoming familiar with some Broadway folks, Duggan went into acting. From 1953 through practically the time of his death in 1988, he was a fixture in both movies and television. It is impossible to list all the different shows this prolific actor was part of either as support, guest or star. But to give an idea, he was General Ed Britt on "Twelve O'Clock High", he was Cal Calhoun in "Bourbon Beat" and his most famous role as Murdoch Lancer in "Lancer" and the original John Walton opposite Patricia Neal in "The Homecoming, A Christmas Story". Many people will remember him as "Howitzer" Al Hoolihan, the father of Hotlips in "MASH". It was in 1954 that he married the Broadway actress Elizabeth Logue whom he always called "Betty". Both Andrew Duggan and his wife were cremated, their ashes scattered at Lake Arrowhead, California.
