Head - The nickname of Army Colonel Sherman Potter
(Harry Morgan) on the military comedy M*A*S*H/CBS/1972-83. He was
dubbed "Puddin' Head" by his wife Mildred Potter who lived stateside
while Sherman ran a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital near the front
lines of the Korean War. Each morning Potter saluted the photograph
of his wife which he displayed on his office desk.
When not healing the sick or supervising the nutty physicians in
his command, Potter spent his
leisure hours painting on canvas and riding a horse named Sophie.
