Harry Glicken (1958 – 1991, nickname The Glick) was a volcanologist who was killed on 3 June 1991 by a pyroclastic flow on Mount Unzen in Japan. Also killed were forty-two other scientists and journalists, including volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft.

Glicken was scheduled to observe Mount St. Helens on 18 May 1980; however, he had to take the day off to attend an interview in a college in California. His replacement, David A. Johnston, was killed by the eruption of Mount St. Helens.
