Doctor of Humane Letters  1967
Status: conferred

Son of England but now one of the most beloved citizens of the United States; durable and versatile humorist and master showman; recipient of many of the highest honors that colleagues and a grateful nation can bestow upon one of his profession; he has found in the art of entertainment the means to a humane ministry, relieving thereby the tedium and abrasiveness of social and political encounters and the frustration and loneliness of men at war.
