Larry Linville   (1939-2000)

Larry Linville was born in Ojai, California and graduated from high school in Sacramento.  He then went to the University of Colorado where a desire to  fly jets led him to a major in engineering.  He told me he also had a desire to act and there were many more girls enrolled in drama than engineering.  He got out of engineering and joined a civic group in Boulder, Colorado.  In 1959 he won a scholarship to the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts in London.   After returning to the United States, he was kept busy, with stage work and made his debut on Broadway in Eugene O’Neill’s,  “More Stately Mansions”, staring Ingrid Bergman.

On the small screen Linville was also kept busy with roles on “Judd for the Defense”, “Mission Impossible”, and “Bonanza”, but his role on “Room 222” is what got the attention of producer, Gene Reynolds who cast him as Major Frank Burns on “MASH”.  After five very successful seasons on the award winning series, Larry decided he had accomplished all he could with the character, and did not renew his contract.  He appeared in numerous TV series and films after his famous role.

I met and photographed him in 1988 while he was on a college speaking tour.  He wasn’t at all like Major Frank Burns, but did enjoy the attention he received at a bar after his talk to a packed house.  I believe smoking finally got the best of him when he died from complications of pneumonia after surgery was performed to remove cancerous lung tissue.
