Lee Erwin (12 September 1906 - 4 June 1972) was a television writer from the 1950s to the 1970s. Erwin wrote for Mr. & Mrs. North, The Millionaire, Have Gun, Will Travel, The New Adventures of Charlie Chan and many other 1950s and 1960s TV shows.
Lee is probably best known for his Star Trek episode "Whom Gods Destroy", his two part Tarzan episode "The Deadly Silence", and his episode of The Lieutenant, "To Set It Right", which was never aired because the subject matter, racial prejudice, was taboo for entertainment television at the time. This episode can be viewed at The Paley Center for Media. His last work for television was the story for the All in the Family episode "Writing the President" which he co-wrote with Fred Freiberger.
