Actor. Born in Lincoln, Nebraska, he served in the United States Air Force during World War II and was awarded an Air Medal and three oak leaf clusters. After studying at Fordham University and the Pasadena Playhouse, he co-starred in the national touring company of Sidney Kingsley's "Detective Story" (1950) and came to Hollywood in 1952. Although he made a handful of films, notably "The Bachelor Party" (1957) and "Sweet Bird of Youth" (1962), Abbott spent practically his whole career in television, with guest spots in over 100 shows. The quiet authority he exuded pegged him for roles as doctors and executives. He is best known as 'Assistant Director Arthur Ward' in the long-running series "The F.B.I." (1965 to 1974). In his last film, "Starry Night" (1999), he appeared with his son, actor David Abbott. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
