Renaissance Man

DURING HIS 40-YEAR career Alan Alda has authored books, written screenplays and amassed Emmys and Golden Globes. He is perhaps best known for portraying Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H — the role earned him a total of five Emmys for acting, writing and directing, making him the only actor in history to win in each category for a single series. Additionally, from 1993 until 2005 he hosted Scientific American Frontiers on PBS. Alda will be at the Marin Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium in San Rafael on January 30 as a part of the MPSF speaker series.
