A character in Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh. The proprietor of a New York boarding house, Harry is sixty years old, a widower of twenty years. He acts aggressive in an effort to hide his essentially passive nature. He hasn't taken a step outside the place since his wife died. Occasionally he thinks of going around the neighborhood and visiting his old friends, but, like every other ambition in the play, this idea is a pipe dream. His enduring fear of the world keeps him inside.
