Bergen Sets Up Humor Awards
American students will have the opportunity to study the humor of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden through a $4,500 donation by radio humorist Edgar Bergen to the American-Scandinavian Foundation, it was announced yesterday. Three scholarships have been established.
The Bergen awards will be granted to students of literature, psychology, or any related liberal arts field. Bergen believes that the study of Scandinavian humor will create a better understanding in America of the Northern European countries.
