Madison Square Garden a year

a 10-year period. The reviews of
, that period were filled with this
typical comment, "Every now and
then a man appears on the stage
with a dynamic instinct for creat-
ing character and illusion, and
for dominating make-believe in
such a way that it becomes, for the
moment, a forceful reality. Ed-
ward G. Robinson is such a man."
Since 1929, he has made over
100 films. Whether playing the
"Little
ruthless
part of a
Caesar" or a research scien-
tist, he has displayed an uner-
ring sense for the human quali-
ties of the role.
Ironically, his meteoric success
in "crime" opened new horizons
of artistic appreciation for him as
a serious collector of art Many of
his paintings have been lent to
museums around the country. He
believes that each man is only
the "custodian" of a work of art
he may have hanging on the wall.
Robinson also has a deep con-
cern for people and his country.
In 1941 he was awarded the Amer-
ican Humane Association's gold
medal. In the same year, he con-
tributed $100,000 to the U.S.O.
"as a small down payment on the
privilege of being an American."
In 1943 he was the narrator for the
huge demonstration in New York
City protesting the slaughter of the
Jews in Europe. In .1957 he was
awarded the Louis D. Brandeis
gold medal for service to humanity.,

In 1963 he received the Eleanor
Roosevelt Humanities Award in
Washington, D.C. He was the first
recipient of New York City Col- ,
lege's James P. Hackett medal for
outstanding achievement in ora-
tory and drama in 1965. On No-
vember 16, 1969, he received the
Screen Actors Guild Award for
distinguished achievement in ad-
vancing the ideals of his profession.
