SAG to honor Nolan

Former prexy to be feted at mid-year meeting July 10

HOLLYWOOD — Former Screen Actors Guild President Kathleen Nolan has been selected to receive the Hollywood Division’s Ralph Morgan Award for service to the members.

Kudo, named after SAG’s first president, will be presented during the Guild’s Hollywood mid-year membership meeting July 10 at the Radisson Wilshire Plaza Hotel.

“This is the highest honor the Hollywood Division can bestow, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving than our first female president, Kathleen Nolan,” said SAG President Melissa Gilbert.

Before becoming president in 1975, Nolan served as a board member, chair of the Women’s Conference Committee, third vice president and first vice president.

During her tenure, Nolan focused on inclusion, bringing all of the Hollywood unions together to protect U.S. Copyright Law and to lobby the studios for equal employment opportunity (regardless of gender, race or ethnicity) for all actors. President Jimmy Carter also appointed her to the Corp. for Public Broadcasting.

Previous recipients include SAG Presidents Ed Asner, Dennis Weaver and William Schallert, National Executive Directors Ken Orsatti, Jack Dales and Chet Migden, and past officers Kent McCord, Ron Soble, Marie Windsor, Ann Doran, John Randolph and Warren Kemmerling.
