Call Him Dr. Dylan
While on tour in Europe, Bob Dlyan was awarded an honorary Doctor of Music degree by The University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland this Wednesday. Dylan also has an honorary degree from Princeton that he received in 1970. St. Andrews officials lauded Dylan as “an iconic figure for the 20th Century, particularly for those of us whose formative years were the 1960s and ’70s.” Dylan’s laureation address was given by St. Andrews Professor Neil Corcoran, editor of “Do you, Mr. Jones?: Bob Dylan with the Poets and Professors,” a collection of essays. St. Andrews was formed in 1413 and is the oldest university in Scotland.
