NOTES

"I got into a brawl one night in a saloon in Greenwich Village. Elia Kazan, a great director, saw me put out a couple of hecklers and figures there was some Big Daddy in me, just lyin' dormant. And out it came. People still do call me Big Daddy, but to me, inside, I'm no Big Daddy at all." --Burl Ives, a 1978 quote reprinted in USA TODAY, April 17, 1995

Ives was the recipient of the Minnesota Heritage Award, the Carl Sandburg Award, the National Boy Scouts Award and the Crystal Humanitarian Award (given by the Crystal Cathedral), as well as being the Lincoln Laureate (State of Illinois). He also received an Honorary Doctor of Law from Farleigh Dickinson University, an Honorary Doctor of Music from Carl Sandburg College and the US Navy's "E" Award.
