Hugh Sanders (March 13, 1911 - January 9, 1966) was an American actor, probably best known as Dr. Reynolds in the movie To Kill a Mockingbird.

Born in Illinois, Sanders graduated from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.[2]

He worked in radio until 1949 and then made the transition to Hollywood. He was a guest star in several series, including The Lone Ranger, Highway Patrol, Four Star Playhouse, Playhouse 90, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Maverick, Richard Diamond, Private Detective, Zane Grey Theater, Bat Masterson, and The Asphalt Jungle. He also made five guest appearances on Perry Mason, including two roles as murder victims: John Callender in "The Case of the Fan Dancer's Horse" (1957), and Ken Bascombe in "The Case of the Bashful Burro" (1960). He also had eight appearances on Rawhide, four on Bonanza, and four on The Fugitive.

Sanders was married to Dorothy Allsup of Dayton, Ohio.[3]

Sanders is interred at Mountain View Cemetery and Mausoleum in Altadena, California.
