1911
Leif Erickson was born on October 27, 1911.
He worked as a soloist in a band as vocalist and trombone player and played in Max Reinhardt's productions, then gained a small amount of stage experience in a comedy Vaudeville act. Initially billed by Paramount Pictures as Glenn Erickson, he began his screen career as a leading man in Westerns.
1933
Erickson made his film debut in two 1933 band films with Betty Grable before starting a string of Buster Crabbe Westerns based on Zane Grey novels.
Erickson took four years off to serve in the Navy during World War II as a combat photographer. Erickson served as an instructor, was shot down twice in the Pacific, and was twice wounded. Erickson appeared in films such as College Holiday (1937), Conquest (1937), Ride a Crooked Mile (1938), Sorry, Wrong Number (1948), The Snake Pit (1948), Fourteen Hours (1951), Invaders from Mars (1953), On the Waterfront (1954), The Fastest Gun Alive (1956), Twilight for the Gods (1958), A Gathering of Eagles (1963), Roustabout (1964) and The Carpetbaggers (1964). Perhaps his most notable role was as Deborah Kerr's macho husband in the stage and film versions of Tea and Sympathy.

Erickson appeared frequently on television, having been cast with Bette Davis and Sandy Descher in the 1959 episode "Dark Morning" of CBS's anthology series The DuPont Show with June Allyson. He had a lead role as patriarch Big John Cannon in the television series The High Chaparral from 1967 until 1971. His wife, Victoria, was played by Linda Cristal, and his screen son from a previous marriage, Billy Blue Cannon, by Mark Slade. Guest television roles included playing Aaron Burr in the second season of the 'Daniel Boone' series.
