[NOTE: The following article was originally presented in 1990, in the program book for the 119th Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth. The 119th Edition will forever be remembered as Gunther Gebel-Williams' farewell tour.]
Lord of the Rings ... King of the Jungle ... The Golden Gladiator ... Caesar of the Circus!
Presenting Gunther Gebel-Williams -- the master of the menagerie, the legend that lives, the most brilliant wild animal trainer in the world -- in his fabulous farewell performance with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Gunther and his ferocious felines, preeminent pachyderms and heroic horses have electrified audiences for 20 excitement-filled years. This edition marks the closing of his Circus chapter as the supreme charismatic champion of the Big Top. For the last time, he'll manifest mastery over his tempestuous Bengal tigers, his amazing elephants and capricious liberty horses. You'll discover why this wizard of the wild was the three-time winner of the Ernst Renke-Plaskett Award -- the highest honor bestowed by the Circus world on one of their own.
The mystery and magic of Gunther Gebel-Williams has grown through the years. But behind his superstar splendor, his uncanny kinship with his cats, his incredibly casual command and his exhilarating energy is a man devoted to his family. He is a true friend to his comrades and a tireless, cheerful perfectionist whose seemingly perpetual motion includes a deep love and commitment to others. We invite you to celebrate the tremendous talents of this tiger-training titan and to cherish this very special tribute to a true modern-day hero -- Ladies and Gentlemen -- Gunther Gebel-Williams!
Gunther Gebel-Williams has the intimacy with and understanding of his charges of a man born to the Circus life. But, amazingly, that was not the case. Instead, he is the embodiment of a rags-to-riches fable.
Born in the small town of Schweidnitz, now a part of Poland, he and the Circus found each other after World War II in Cologne, Germany. It was love at first sight. It was here, at the Circus Williams, that Gunther -- age 12 -- discovered the joys and rewards of a Big Top. Harry Williams, the Circus owner, quickly recognized Gunther's natural talents and took him on as a student -- and a friend. Under his tutelage, Gunther learned Circus skills from acrobatics to animal training. When Harry Williams was tragically killed during a performance, Gunther took over both the leadership of the Circus and, as a sign of respect, the Williams' family name.
Under the superb guidance of this young and gifted entertainer, the Circus Williams flourished and toured throughout Europe. Gunther trained all the animals, performed in each show and managed the business -- an awesome responsibility. Little did he know that his renown was spreading farther than he had ever dreamed.
And on a fateful day in 1968, Gunther's world was changed forever.
It was at the height of Gunther’s success that Irvin Feld, new owner of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, vowed to sign him as the headliner for The Greatest Show On Earth. After exhaustive negotiations and international commuting, Mr. Feld was successful. But, because of Gunther’s great loyalty to the Circus Williams, Mr. Feld had to buy the entire Circus -- for $2 million -- to gain its star.
Gunther Gebel-Williams made his sensational American debut in 1969 in the 99th Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth. From that moment on, his star has continued to rise -- and shine! Each season Gunther has created new and more sensational acts, each one topping the last. He was the first to bring together -- in one cage -- three different, antagonistic species: snarling tigers, giant horses and mammoth African elephants! He left audiences in utter amazement by riding the ring with an uncaged tiger atop an elephant. He brought together 15 leopards, three panthers and two pumas in the same cage -- where he lay down among them as they swarmed over his body. These incredible acts, and more, won him the 1973 “Outstanding Circus Performer of the Year” award from the American Guild of Variety Artists.
Today, Gunther Gebel-Williams, together with his wife, Sigrid, daughter, Tina, and son, Mark, make up the Gebel-Williams team. Each year, Gunther continues to prove himself the world’s greatest Circus performer by training more different types of wild animals than any other person in history. His unparalleled accomplishments will always stand as the paradigm of performance art -- a magnificent meld of talent, bravery, showmanship and pure genius.
He is, unquestionably, The Greatest Wild Animal Trainer of All Time!
The following is the text of David Krieger's presentation speech at the award ceremony.
WHO IS GIVING THE AWARD
"The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation exists because we believe that peace has become an imperative in the Nuclear Age. The power of our technologies, including nuclear technology, has made it necessary for humanity to mature more rapidly and find ways to resolve our conflicts without resort to violence. It is the pursuit of peace with justice that motivates our efforts, and gives rise to our many activities.
We are an educational organization that believes education should be closely linked to action. We work to abolish nuclear weapons, to strengthen international law, and to use science and technology for constructive rather than destructive purposes.
PAST WINNERS AND TED
The Foundation has tried to shine a light on outstanding leadership for peace. Almost since our inception, we have given an award for Distinguished Peace Leadership to those who have spoken out and acted courageously for peace. Some of the most outstanding peace leaders of our time have received this award, including the XIVth Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mairead Maguire, Helen Caldicott, Father Theodore Hesburgh, Jacques Cousteau, Carl Sagan, Linus Pauling, and Ted Turner.
We have honored these individuals because we believe that our world is in need of inspiring role models. We have reached a point in human history at which we cannot continue with the old modes of thinking without courting disaster of unfathomed magnitude. Albert Einstein reminded us that "[t]he unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking, and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe." Each of the individuals we have honored has in his or her own way tried to change our thinking and avert this catastrophe. Each of these individuals has chosen life and hope.
As we approach the 21st century, we have reached a crossroads in human history. The Cold War has ended, but nuclear dangers continue. In some respects, due to command and control problems in Russia, the dangers of nuclear weapons being used by terrorist groups or nations may even have increased. India and Pakistan have entered the Nuclear Weapons Club. It is obvious today that this club has lost its exclusivity. It must either disband and abolish its nuclear weapons, or it must face the reality that nuclear weapons will proliferate to many additional nations.
World crises are becoming more frequent. Economic crises. Environmental crises. Social crises. Human rights crises. These crises have been caused by both internal and external factors producing societal disintegration, compounded by an institutional structure at the global level that is neither adequately organized nor supported by states to avert these crises.
Amidst these crises, we can justifiably feel that there are tremendous opportunities. All crises carry with them opportunities for transformation. Our time is no different in this regard. With the power of our technologies, the risks are infinitely greater if we choose violence, just as the potential benefits are infinitely greater if we choose peace.
We believe that the road to peace in the 21st century must be built on universal respect for human dignity, as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. If respect for human dignity is to become universal, we need a new type of citizenship in our world, a citizenship of the whole planet - Earth Citizenship or World Citizenship.
In this conviction, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation has created another major award, a World Citizenship Award, which we plan to make to individuals of high distinction who have acted for the benefit of all humanity.
I believe that we could have chosen no better person to set the standard for this award than our first recipient, Ted Turner. Ted's vision has not been limited by borders. Like the rest of us, he has seen the photos of Earth from outer space that demonstrate that the world is one. But unlike many of us, he has acted upon that understanding as a businessman, an educator, an environmentalist, and a humanitarian.
Ted had the vision to create the Cable News Network, a network that now links the world. He initiated the Goodwill Games, the Better World Society, and the Better World Fund. He also made the largest private gift ever to benefit the United Nations, helping that organization fulfill its promise to the poor, to refugees, to those whose human rights are being abused.
Ted Turner has been a thoughtful and generous citizen of the world. He has been creative and persistent. He has been bold and imaginative. He has accepted personal responsibility for being a good citizen of our beautiful and fragile planet. He has helped to demonstrate the broad possibilities of world citizenship. Ted has marked a path for others to follow into the future. For this we will honor him on November 6th in Santa Barbara with the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation's first World Citizenship Award."
Ted Turner received the foundation's World Citizenship Award in 1998. Ted Turner's Acceptance Speech for the 1998 World Citizenship Award
The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA) is pleased to recognize truck driver Cecil Mackie with the 2001 ‘Good Samaritan Award’, sponsored by Marine Atlantic Inc. Mackie, a native of Gardiner Mines, NS, works for Hillman’s Transfer Ltd. in Sydney, NS. Mr. Mackie was honoured for his outstanding performance at the scene of a traffic accident near Whycogamah, NS. During icy conditions one day last March, Mr. Mackie happened upon a car that had lost control and flipped over in a snow bank. Wasting no time, he rushed to the car and helped the occupants get out. Luckily the people in the car were uninjured and Mr. Mackie offered them towels, a cup of tea and a warm place to sit until the ambulance arrived. He then waited with the occupants for another hour and 45 minutes until the tow truck arrived. After unloading their luggage from the trunk of the car to the cab of the truck, Mr. Mackie drove the occupants to a truck stop to clean up and then on to the house of the people they were visiting in Sydney, NS. For his selfless actions and the time he took from his driving schedule to help these people, the APTA is pleased to recognize Cecil Mackie with the 2001 Good Samaritan of the Year Award.
On September 19, 2000, The North Shore Animal League America bestowed on celebrity dog trainer, Bash Dibra, its first Legendary Bond Award. The award recognizes people who have made a commitment to the humane cause and have taken extraordinary measures to improve the lives of companion animals. The award was presented at the first annual Lewyt Humane Awards Luncheon, held in Garden City, New York.
Known as "dog trainer to the stars," Bash Dibra is the pet guru of choice for celebrity clients such as Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Basinger, Jennifer Lopez, Henry Kissinger and Mariah Carey. However, it is his tireless efforts on behalf of animal-related charitable causes that have made him renowned in humane circles.
Bash has been the driving force behind such successful fund-raising events as the ASPCA Dog Walks and Delta Society Service & Therapy Animal Awards. He conceived, and each hear hosts the annual Paws Walks, which benefit New York City's parks while promoting responsible pet ownership. This year's event, Paws Walk 2000, was a five-week five-borough event which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, both for city parks and animal charities. Bash Dibra regularly works to promote programs such as Delta Society's Pet Partners Program, in which people and their pets visit people in nursing homes and special schools, and North Shore Animal League America and other shelter programs which rescue and place abandoned animals.
Dibra views these cause-related events as an opportunity to educate the public to the commitment involved in owning a pet. He believes that responsible pet ownership, including appropriate owner/pet training, could do much to elimate one of the nation's largest problems: the 15 million unwanted pets abandoned each year, 80% of them the result of entirely avoidable behavior problems.
While Bash Dibra continues to be one of the nation's most sought-after animal behaviorists, his reputation as a fundraiser and generous supporter of humane animal causes continues to grow. It is that quality that has won him the first North Shore Animal League America Legendary Bond Award.
Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate
The Pritzker Prize Jury honors Hans Hollein as a master of his profession—one who with wit and eclectic gusto draws upon the traditions of the New World as readily as upon those of the Old. An architect who is also an artist, he has the good fortune to design museums that are then eager to place within their walls works of art from his hand, whether in the form of drawings, collages, or sculpture. In the design of museums, schools, shops, and public housing, he mingles bold shapes and colors with an exquisite refinement of detail and never fears to bring together the richest of ancient marbles and the latest in plastics. The Jury salutes him as a superb teacher, who urges the young by his example to take big chances and yet make sure that not the designer but the thing designed remains of paramount importance. Unflaggingly, he continues to practice what he proclaimed upon behalf of his fellow architects a quarter of a century ago, at the beginning of his distinguished career: "We give back to man the joy of building."
I am deeply honored to have been elected by a distinguished jury to be the seventh recipient of the Pritzker Prize. I feel both proud and moved that my endeavors and intentions in art and architecture have been understood and appreciated in such a wonderful way-at this point in my life and career.
This is a great moment and I am particularly happy that it happens here, in Los Angeles, in the United States, this great country with which I have had close ties since the late fifties-witnessed also today by the many friends who are here to join in the celebration.
I want to thank the Pritzker family, not only for instituting this prize—a prize which in its short run has come to be considered the world's major architecture award, but also for the detailed care they have taken to make the formal presentation a real celebration and an event that will be imbued in our memories. Years of intensive work receive joyful recognition in a setting that could not be more appropriate.
I—naturally—want to thank the jury for their choice and also the officers of the award for selecting such a prominent and diversified panel. That architects, eminent art-historians, as well as international business leaders make the judgment together, makes their verdict so valuable and impressive vis-a-vis a wider public.
Thanks and praise also goes to the persons who administer the award-in particular to Brendan Gill whose impeccable prose and demeanour embellishes this event-and Arthur Drexler, who since my early beginnings has shown interest in my work and given encouragement.
I also want to thank all those people who have been instrumental in my development, above all the teachers-both formal and informal ones, both abroad and in this country-some of whom are here today And also very importantly, I want to thank the clients who have given me the opportunity to carry out the work which is now lauded. I am particularly moved that some of those clients came over the Atlantic especially to be here today for this event, an event which is also their day
I am happy and proud that so many friends are here today who have gone a long way beside me. The recognition I receive today is proving them right, proving them right in giving me support, encouragement and opportunity
The work I have done could not have been realized without the help of my close collaborators and staff members. To them, I offer my sincere thanks on this occasion.
Even though the Pritzker Prize is an award of the world, and I accept it as an Austrian, and a Viennese, it is also an American prize, and I want to make use of this occasion to acknowledge the profound effect the encounter with this country has had on me and my work. Not only have I studied in this country but more important, to me, were the people and the spirit of this country its wide expanses, and its persuasive landscape that have played a major role in the formulation of my thoughts and attitudes about architecture.
It is a fitting coincidence that my first two stations in this country, after deciding not to disappear in the ivory towers of Ivy League universities, but to confront myself with another-maybe the real-America, have been Chicago and California. Chicago has taught me lessons about the city the people and great architecture. To California I came out of a longing for its lifestyle and its architectural and urban formulation, which to me was unlike Europe and very much of the second half of our century Los Angeles to me was a fascinating phenomenon, a realization of a new approach, of a new spirit. Of course it also has close invisible ties to Vienna, and one of the reasons to come here in the first place had to do with these ties, when I first advanced my research on Rudolph M. Schindler here.
Equally important to me has been the impact of the American landscape. The vast expanses of this country gave me the impetus and the idea of what it means to make man-made structures in space, a manmade environment that not only is a continuation and a transformation of something already existing, but the creation of something new, the artificial in a dialectic with nature.
I have always considered architecture as an art. To me architecture is not primarily the solution of a problem, but the making of a statement. Within the two poles of architectural activity architecture as ritual, and architecture as a means of preservation of body-temperature, my search is for the absolute, as well as for the needs and constraints, which also generate form.
Similarly I have tried to expand the scope and the range of artistic and architectural intervention. Therefore my interests dwell not only on the sizeable building proper, but on the utterances you can make on a small scale as well, especially in relation to the needs daily life carries with it-the room, the object you feel and touch. Not only do I deal with eternity, with the permanent, but also with the ephemeral and the temporary
As an artist, I am only responsible to myself and can make highly individualistic manifestations. As an architect, I am responsible to the needs of man and society
Man continuously designs for survival, for immediate survival and for survival after death. The life and work of an artist and architect mirrors this fundamental human situation.
Maybe this is a very European, very Viennese way of looking at things. This dualistic approach, this Manichaean view has its correspondence in the position of standing with one leg in the old world, in tradition, and with the other in the new world, in the future.
In this spirit, I want to accept the Pritzker prize, as a reward for the past, and an incentive for the future.
