I'm trying to determine the name of this cousin of my mother (maiden name SCHNEIDER) for genealogical purposes. He was an actor on television (in the 1970s?) and possibly in a few films. I don't believe he a SCHNEIDER.

1/31/2020 4:57 AM Don't know for sure, of course, but my first impression was that it's Conrad Bain (or his twin brother Bonar Bain). Both were actors in Hollywood during this period. Conrad is best remembered for his role in Different Strokes. See

1/31/2020 8:57 AM Looks like Louis Nye who was a regular on the Steve Allen show.
2/2/2020 9:45 AM Definitely not Conrad Bain. Resembles Bill Macy, but not definitive. Ironically, they were both on "Maude" in the 1970s.
