Biography

Robert Preston Meservey was born on June 8, 1918 and died March 21, 1987.

Preston appeared in many Hollywood films, predominantly Westerns, but is probably best remembered for his portrayal of “Professor” Harold Hill in Meredith Willson’s musical The Music Man (1962). He won a Tony Award for his performance in the original Broadway production (1957). In 1965 he was the male part of a duo-lead musical, “I Do! I Do!” with Mary Martin and in 1974, he starred opposite Bernadette Peters in Jerry Herman’s Broadway musical “Mack and Mabel” as Mack Sennett, the famous silent film director.
