Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk
Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk, was a prominent Tudor politician. He was an uncle of two of the wives of King Henry VIII of England, namely Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard, both of whom were beheaded, played a major role in the machinations affecting these royal marriages. After falling from favour in 1546, he was stripped of the dukedom and imprisoned in the Tower of London, avoiding execution when King Henry VIII died on 28 January 1547, he was released on the accession of the Roman Catholic queen, Mary I of England, whom he aided in securing her throne, thus setting the stage for tensions between his Catholic family and the Protestant royal line that would be continued by Queen Mary's half-sister, Queen Elizabeth I of England. Thomas was the eldest son of Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk by his first wife, Elizabeth Tilney, the daughter of Sir Frederick Tilney and widow of Sir Humphrey Bourchier, he was descended in the female line from Thomas of Brotherton, 1st Earl of Norfolk, the sixth son of King Edward I of England.
In 1485, both his father and his grandfather, John Howard, 1st Duke of Norfolk, had fought for the Yorkist king, Richard III of England, at the Battle of Bosworth, in which his grandfather was killed, thus bringing the Tudor king, Henry VII of England, to the throne. Due to their alliegance to the losing side, the Howard family's titles became forfeit. Thomas Howard was an able soldier, was employed in military operations. In 1497, he served in a campaign against the Scots under the command of his father, who knighted him on 30 September 1497, he was made a Knight of the Garter after the accession of King Henry VIII, became the King's close companion, with lodgings at court. On 4 May 1513, he was appointed Lord Admiral, on 9 September, he helped to defeat the Scots at the Battle of Flodden, his first wife, Anne of York, died in 1511, early in 1513, Howard married Lady Elizabeth Stafford, the daughter of Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham and Lady Eleanor Percy, the daughter of Henry Percy, 4th Earl of Northumberland.
On 1 February 1514, Howard's father Earl of Surrey, was created Duke of Norfolk, by letters patent issued on the same day, Thomas Howard was created Earl of Surrey for life. Over the next few years, he served King Henry VIII in a variety of ways. In September 1514, he escorted the King's sister, Princess Mary Tudor, to France for her forthcoming marriage to King Louis XII of France. In 1517, he quelled a May day riot in London with the use of soldiers. On 10 March 1520, the Earl of Surrey was appointed Lord Deputy of Ireland. By July 1520, Surrey entered upon the thankless task of endeavoring to keep Ireland in order, his letters contain accounts of attempts to pacify the rival factions of the Earl of Kildare and the Earl of Ormonde, are full of demands for more money and troops. At the end of 1521, the Earl of Surrey was recalled from Ireland to take command of the English fleet in naval operations against France, his ships were ill-provisioned, his warfare consisted of a series of raids upon the French coast for the purpose of inflicting all the damage possible.
When Surrey abandoned the siege of Brest, he left Vice-Admiral William FitzWilliam on station to blockade the port. The English navy patrolled the coast of Brittany for the next three months, but was unable to score a decisive victory with their Spanish allies. In July 1522, Surrey had burned Morlaix, in September, he had laid waste the country around Boulogne, spreading devastation on every side until the winter brought back the fleet to England; the sea patrol was abandoned with little achieved. On 4 December 1522, Thomas Howard was made Lord Treasurer upon his father's resignation of the office, on 21 May 1524, he succeeded his father as Duke of Norfolk, his liking for war brought him into conflict with Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, who preferred diplomacy in the conduct of foreign affairs. In 1523, Wolsey had secured to the Duke of Suffolk the reversion of the office of Earl Marshal by Howard's father, in 1525, he was replaced as Lord Admiral by Duke of Richmond. Finding himself pushed aside, Howard spent considerable time away from court in 1525–1527 and 1528.
In the mid 1520s, Thomas Howard's niece, Anne Boleyn, had caught the eye of King Henry VIII, thereby reviving the Duke of Norfolk's political fortunes with his involvement in the King's attempt to annul his marriage to Queen Catherine of Aragon. By 1529, matters of state were being handled by the Duke of Norfolk, the Duke of Suffolk, the Boleyns, who pressed King Henry VIII to remove Cardinal Wolsey. In October, the King sent the Duke of Suffolk to obtain the great seal from the Cardinal. In November, Wolsey died before trial. Howard benefited from Wolsey's fall, becoming the King's leading Councillor and applying himself energetically in the King's efforts to find a way out of his marriage to Queen Catherine, his loyalty and service to King Henry VIII brought him ample rewards in the form of monastic lands in Norfolk and Suffolk, employment on diplomatic missions, being named a knight of the French Order of St Michael in 1532 and Earl Marshal of England on 28 May 1533. In May 1536, when King Henry VIII arrested his second wife, Queen Anne Boleyn, Howard presided at the trial of his niece as Lord High Steward.
The Duke of Norfolk's marriage to his second wife, Lady Elizabeth Stafford, mutually affectionate at first, deteriorated in 1527 when he took a mistress, Elizabeth Holland, whom he installed in the Howard household. Lady Elizabeth formally separated from her husband in the 1530s, she claimed that in March 1534, the Duke ‘locked me up in a chamber, took away my jewels and apparel'. Howa
It Pays to Be Ignorant
It Pays to Be Ignorant was a radio comedy show which maintained its popularity during a nine-year run on three networks for such sponsors as Philip Morris, DeSoto. The series was a spoof on the authoritative, academic discourse evident on such authoritative panel series as Quiz Kids and Information Please, while the beginning of the program parodied the popular quiz show, Doctor I. Q. With announcers Ken Roberts and Dick Stark, the program was broadcast on Mutual from June 25, 1942 to February 28, 1944, on CBS from February 25, 1944 to September 27, 1950 and on NBC from July 4, 1951 to September 26, 1951; the series aired as a summer replacement. The satirical series featured "a board of experts who are dumber than you are and can prove it." Tom Howard was the quizmaster who asked questions of dim-bulb panelists Harry McNaughton, Lulu McConnell and George Shelton. The Irish-born Howard and Shelton had worked together as a team in vaudeville and comedy film shorts, while McConnell and British comic McNaughton had both appeared in many Broadway musical comedies and revues between 1920 and the late 1930s.
Each episode would start with an introduction of the experts. After this, three or four questions would be discussed in detail: some posed by Howard, some picked at random by a guest from the audience; these questions had the answer obvious in the query or were common knowledge: "Can you tell me the man's name children look for on Christmas Eve?" "How long does it take a ship to make a five-day journey?" "What animal does a blacksmith make horse shoes for?" "For what meal do we wear a dinner jacket?" "What is the habitat of the Bengal tiger?"Even so, the panelists would get the answer wrong, providing outrageously funny answers instead, followed by an more uproarious rationale for their answer, a conversation that goes off on a tangent, and/or insults at each other. The show had a number of running gags which became catchphrases with listeners such as McNaughton's "Now we're back to Miss McConnell again" and Shelton's "I used to woik in that town." The original radio cast brought the show to television.
It was first seen on CBS from June 6 to September 19, 1949. After two years, the series returned on NBC from July 5 to September 27, 1951. A spoof of this version was done in the mid-1950s by Jackie Gleason; the series was revived by Stefan Hatos-Monty Hall Productions as a weekly syndicated series from September 10, 1973 to September, 1974. In this version, host Joe Flynn queried panelists Jo Anne Worley, Billy Baxter and Charles Nelson Reilly. Not long after this version discontinued production, Flynn died from drowning in his swimming pool. At least 69 radio episodes are known to exist; these include three held by the UCLA Film and Television Archive. One 1951 television episode and two syndicated TV episodes are known to exist. Further, two films exist at the Library of Congress in the J. Fred and Leslie W. MacDonald Collection: a CBS kinescope from 1949, an NBC installment from June 14, 1951 with all the DeSoto automobile commercials OTR Network: It Pays to Be Ignorant Internet Archive: It Pays to Be Ignorant Ignorant: It Pays to Be Ignorant It Pays to Be Ignorant on Outlaws Old Time Radio Corner "It Pays To Be Ignorant".
