   The Lambs, America’s oldest theatrical performing arts social club, honored SAG-AFTRA president and stage, film, and television actor Ken Howard —> with honorary lifetime membership. The organization bestowed the honor in recognition of his outstanding achievements in stage, television and film, and for his work in protecting performer rights as past president of SAG, as the first elected president of SAG-AFTRA, and as a trustee of The Actors Fund and the SAG Foundation.

   Howard joins such acting icons as Spencer Tracy, John Wayne, and Cliff Robertson (among others), all previous recipients. The Lambs is America’s first professional theatrical club, founded in New York in 1874. They have been involved in the founding of The Actors Fund of America, ASCAP, Actors’ Equity, and in the merger of SAG-AFTRAThe Lambs is in Manhattan, near Radio City Music Hall and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

   Howard’s admirable body of work includes his second Emmy in 2009 for his role in HBO’s critically acclaimed Grey Gardens. He appeared in the recurring role of Hank Hooper in NBC’s award-winning primetime series 30 Rock. With over 20 feature films, Howard can currently be seen as Judge Warren in The Judge and in The Wedding Ringer. Ken Howard is a Tony-winning actor (Child’s Play) who has appeared in nearly 40 stage productions since his professional debut on Broadway in 1968. His stage work includes 1776 and Seesaw.

   Congratulations to our beloved president of SAG-AFTRA, who I had the pleasure meeting a SAG Awards gala in 2010. And, Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is housed in the prestigious library of the SAG Foundation.
