Donald "Don" Galloway (July 27, 1937 – January 8, 2009) was an American actor of stage, film and television, a political libertarian and journalist, perhaps best-known for his role as Raymond Burr's protégé, Detective Sergeant Ed Brown, on the long-running crime drama Ironside (1967–1975). He reprised the role for a made-for-TV "reunion" film in 1993.

A native of Brooksville, Kentucky, he began his television career in the 1950s in the New York-based soap opera The Secret Storm as the first actor to play Kip Rysdale. His first nighttime video stint was on Tom, Dick and Harry, one-third of the 90-minute weekly sitcom 90 Bristol Court, in 1964.

He signed up with Universal Studios in 1963 and guest-starred on shows like Wagon Train, Run for Your Life, among many others. Those led him to a co-starring role opposite Raymond Burr on Ironside, as Det. Sgt. Ed Brown. For eight years, he had a wonderful on- and off-screen chemistry with Burr. During the sixth season of Ironside, he and Burr co-starred in the TV Movie Portrait: A Man Whose Name Was John. Galloway stayed through the entire run of Ironside until its cancellation in 1975. He was reunited with Burr on two of his mentor's 25 Perry Mason television movies before reprising his role on Return to Ironside in 1993.
