Henry Jaynes Fonda (1905-82) was born in Grand Island, Nebraska, and was raised in Omaha. The Italian family from which he descended had immigrated to the New World more than two hundred years earlier.
 
When Fonda was 20 years old, a family friend, the mother of Marlon Brando, introduced Henry to amateur theater. That was the beginning of a life-long love of acting and everything associated with the theater.
 
All through the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression, Fonda pursued his acting career. Finally, he was rewarded with leading roles. He starred in both the movie and Broadway productions of the comedy Mister Roberts, playing an idealistic Navy officer. That casting was particularly appropriate because Fonda had served as a Navy lieutenant during World War II.
 
Henry Fonda appeared in more than 80 films. He is well-remembered for his work in The Grapes of Wrath, The Ox-Bow Incident, and Twelve Angry Men. He won an Academy Award for On Golden Pond, in which he starred with his daughter, Jane, and Katharine Hepburn.
 
On December 1, 1979, Fonda was awarded the Kennedy Center Honor for artistic excellence. Grateful and modest, Fonda wondered, “How many guys get the chance to work at what they want for fifty years?”
