LAWRENCE UNIVERSITY HONORS ALLIGATOR PRESIDENT BRUCE IGLAUER WITH DOCTOR OF MUSIC DEGREE

Bruce IglauerLawrence University, in Appleton, Wisconsin presented Bruce Iglauer, founder and president of Alligator Records, with the honorary degree of Doctor of Music on June 15, 2003. In conferring the degree upon their former student, University president Richard Warch said: "Bruce Iglauer, the United States Senate may not have had you in mind when it declared 2003 as the Year of the Blues, but it might well have, for you have done as much as anyone to protect and promote the great legacy of this distinctively American art form."

Iglauer, who graduated from Lawrence in 1969 with a degree in Theater (and never took a music course), formed Alligator Records at age 23, (when Koester declined Iglauer's advice to sign his favorite band, Hound Dog Taylor & the HouseRockers, he dipped into a $2500 inheritance to record the group himself; thus Alligator was created in 1971 with Taylor's self-titled LP) when he recorded and produced his favorite blues band, Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers, and ran the company from a one-room Chicago apartment. Today, Alligator Records is the largest contemporary blues label in the world. Thirty-two albums in the catalog have been nominated for Grammy Awards, and eighteen have received Indie Awards from the Association for Independent Music. Alligator and its artists have earned seventy-two W.C. Handy Blues Awards, the blues community's highest honor.

Lawrence University is not the first institution to recognize Iglauer for his many accomplishments. The Montreaux Jazz Festival honored him with its Lifetime Achievement Award, the Blues Hall of Fame inducted Iglauer in 1997, and Chicago Magazine named him a "Chicagoan of the Year" in 2002.
