He was born June 20, 1917, in Heber City, Utah, the son of David A. and Mima Melissa Murdock Broadbent; the tenth of fourteen children.

He earned his Bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University and received a Master's degree from the University of Minnesota in Business Administration.
In 1942, at the onset of WWII, Harvey volunteered his service in the United States Navy and was honorably discharged in December 1945. After the war, he pursued a professional education at the University of Louisville, School of Dentistry.
