He was also awarded an Honorary LL.D. degree from the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina.

Harvey was the Vice-Principal of the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus from January 1970 to June 1972.  Prior to joining the University faculty in 1965, he was Deputy Minister of the Department of Education, and before that had served as chief superintendent of Saskatchewan schools, superintendent of provincial high schools and superintendent of schools in Nipawin and Medstead.  In 1965, Harvey was appointed Professor of School Administration in the Faculty of Education.  When the School of Administration was granted Faculty status in 1968, he was named its first dean.  In 1975 Harvey retired with Emeritus status.
