Robert Young (February 22, 1907 - July 21, 1998) was an American actor. Young appeared in 100 movies and his film career spanned the period from 1931 to 1952 after which he started his TV career. This extended to 1988 and he is best known for his roles in Father Knows Best (1954 to 1963) and Marcus Welby M.D (1969 to 1988).
