Harald August Bohr (22 April 1887 – 22 January 1951) was a Danish mathematician and soccer player. After receiving his doctorate in 1910, Bohr became an eminent mathematician, founding the field of almost periodic functions on which he published a comprehensive survey in the period from 1954 to 1974 with the help of his son-in-law, mathematician Erling Følner. His brother was the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Niels Bohr. He was a member of the Danish national football team for the 1908 Summer Olympics, where he won a silver medal.

Bohr was born in 1887 to Christian Bohr, a professor of physiology,
from a Lutheran background, and Ellen Adler Bohr, a woman from a
wealthy Jewish family of local renown. Harald had a close
relationship with his elder brother, which

Bohr was also an excellent football player. He had a long playing
career with Akademisk Boldklub, making his debut as a 16-year-old in
1903. During the 1905 season he played alongside his brother Niels,
who was a goalkeeper. Harald was selected to play for the Danish
national football team in the 1908 Summer Olympics, where football was
an official event for the first time. Though a Danish side had played
at the 1906 Intercalated Games, the opening match of the 1908 Olympic
tournament was Denmark's first official international football match.
