Having spent thanksgiving with Mr. Bosley and his wonderful family I can say with absolute certainty that he was closer to 5’ 5”.

He did say he was short in one episode. Didn't say how tall he was exactly but he asks Richie what he thinks of his height and he responds, "Pretty Darn Short".

yes, in his peak - 5'8". Stood barely taller than Fonzie, even when Fonzie had his boots on, and about an inch shorter than 5'9" Ron Howard.

Sorry, Rob, couldn't resist..
Looking at some old clips of Happy days recently. I agree Bosley looks more 5'8
compared to Howard.
Others were (I think): Williams: near 5'10 Marion Ros: 5'6 Erin Moran: 5'4 Henry Winkler: about 5'6 Donny Most: ? etc, etc...

I have to say I DO believe he was 5'8" throughout most of his life. If you watch old Happy Days episodes, he looks about an inch shorter than Ron Howard whom I have heard on several occasions say he is 5'9". And, yes, I have actually studied this before as I watched Happy Days. No, I don't think 5'9" but I do believe 5'8".

Guy Whom Was In Father Dowling Mysteries?
If So Then I Agree With This Height Completly.
