Dom guest-stared on many variety shows, leading up to a series-regular role on "The Entertainers" with Carol Burnett and Bob Newhart. Dom's love for television flourished during his twelve years on the "Dean Martin Show." He created many memorable moments while guest hosting for Johnny Carson on the "Tonight Show." In 1968, Dom hosted his own show on CBS, "The Dom DeLuise Variety Show," under the guiding hand of Jackie Gleason. Dom returned as host for ABC's "Dom DeLuise and Friends" from 1983 to 1990.

Dom has had the pleasure to work in film with some of his closest friends. Most notably, Dom starred beside good friend, Burt Reynolds, in movies including "Smokey and the Bandit II," "Cannonball Run I & II," "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" and, Dom's personal favorite, "The End."
Dom appeared with Gene Wilder in "The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother," "The World's Greatest Lover" and "Haunted Honeymoon." Dom loved performing with Anne Bancroft, who wrote, directed and co-starred with him in "Fatso," in which Dom's work received the Italian Film Acting Award. Dom's voice has earned stardom all on its own in animation. Steven Spielberg cast him in Dom's most famous animated role as 'Tigar' in "An American Tail."

North Beach—San Francisco CA’s Little Italy Although the North Beach neighborhood in San Francisco, California is now several blocks from the bay it was named for an area that became landfill in the 1800's. Bordered by Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach occupies the valley between Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill. North Beach History Best known as San Francisco's Little Italy, the neighborhood was a favorite hangout of Beat Generation luminaries and the lively red-light district known as the Barbary Coast at the time of the California Gold Rush. The Barbary Coast The Barbary Coast expanded around Sydney-Town, named for its predominant Australian population, known as Sydney Ducks and stereotyped as criminals and gang members. Many were originally from Ireland having migrated during the Great Irish Famine to Australia then to San Francisco during the Gold Rush. The Barbary Coast, which included areas now part of Chinatown and the Financial District, got its name from the Berbers who arrived from North Africa, but immigrants from Asia, South America, Europe and the eastern United States in addition to those from Australia streamed into the area. Most came seeking gold. Men outnumbered women 70 to 1 on the Barbary Coast which was soon known for bawdy entertainment, gambling houses, dance halls, and all sorts of crime including the practice of shanghaing relunctant sailors for departing sea voyages. The fire following the 1906 earthquake destroyed most of the buildings though many were quickly rebuilt. It wasn't until around 1915–17 that first vigilantes and later the San Francisco Police Department tamed the area, though Broadway east of Columbus, anchored by the Condor Club on the corner retained the red-light district vibe. Little Italy In the years following the 1906 earthquake the rebuilding of the neighborhood and its proximity to the bay attracted Italian immigrants who came from the coastal fishing villages along the gulf of Genoa and the Ligurian sea and found that California gave them an opportunity to continue doing what they had been doing for a living in Italy— fishing. .The first settlement of Italian fishermen in California was in the San Francisco bay area. As early as 1870 Italian fishermen were providing ninety percent of all fish consumed in San Francisco. Joe DiMaggio, who's father was a fisherman, played baseball in North Beach as a kid at the recently renamed Joe DiMaggio playground. Joe moved to North Beach at the age of one and lived at Valparaiso and Taylor. DiMaggio's famous marriage to Marilyn Monroe at San Francisco's City Hall lasted just 274 days.
Another Joe—Joseph Alioto, former San Francisco mayor—was born in North Beach. The son of a Sicilian immigrant and fish processing owner/operator, Alioto was mayor of San Francisco from 1968 – 1976. Some of San Francisco's Italian fishermen migrated south around 1871 and settled in what is now known as the Little Italy neighborhood in San Diego.

The Beat Generation North Beach in San Francisco was also home to the Beat Generation. Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, and Neal Cassady—who inspired the writing style Kerouac adopted for his successful book ‗On The Road‘ and later served as the driver of the psychedelic bus 'Furthur,' with Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranksters chronicled in Tom Wolfe's 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test'—and many other Beatnik poets and writers lived and performed their live readings in the neighborhood. Ruth Weiss—beat poet and friend of Kerouac and Cassady—continued to give live performances in North Beach long after many of the other beat poets had left or died. City Lights Book Store in North Beach Lawrence Ferlinghetti founded City Lights Bookstore in the North Beach neighborhood in 1953. Based on the idea that good books could be affordable, the all paperback bookstore was Beat Generation publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti's City the first in the U.S. Lights Bookstore in San Francisco, California. Ferlinghetti's publishing of Howl and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg—and notoriety from the obscenity trial which followed—helped make City Lights a literary landmark. The bookstore has served for fifty pluses years as a meeting place for writers, artists, and intellectuals. North Beach Festivals The North Beach Festival—San Francisco's oldest street fair—turns Grant Avenue and Green Street into a pedestrian shopping and party mall each June.

Benjamin Franklin statue in Washington Square, North Beach SFA statue of Benjamin Franklin, donated to the city in 1879 by Dr. Henry Cogswell—a dentist who made his fortune during the gold rush—can be found near the center of North Beach's Washington Square. On March 19, 1887, Dr. and Mrs. Cogswell endowed Cogswell Polytechnical College in Sunnyvale, CA. Cogswell was a temperance advocate who erected water fountain/statues in several cities—Pacific Grove, Washington D.C., Boston, Buffalo, Rochester and Pawtucket— as an alternative to saloons for thirsty passersby. Some included statues of himself and several, like the Pacific Grove fountain, were melted down during WWII metal drives.
NORTH BEACH San Francisco‘s Little Italy & Home of the Beats If you love friendly urban neighborhoods with great restaurants, bars, caffes, and night clubs, together with interesting one-of-a-kind shops, then North Beach is for you. North Beach‘s colorful past encompasses Little Italy, the Barbary Coast and the Bohemian/Beatnik tradition. North Beach has the unhurried feeling of a village with all the amenities of an exciting big city. Generally regarded one of the country‘s top urban neighborhoods, North Beach is referred to as the heart and soul of San Francisco. Named for a beach that became landfill in the 1800s, North Beach is nestled in an urban valley between Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill. At the center of North Beach, the graceful Romanesque Saints Peter & Paul Church (known as the Italian Cathedral) rises above the green expanse of Washington Square, recently voted one of America‘s greatest public places. This piazza is where festivals, rallies, art exhibits, impromptu picnics and lovers‘ trysts take place year round.
Even though immigration from Italy peaked in 1913 and many North Beach Italians moved to outlying San Francisco neighborhoods and suburbs, the district maintains a distinctly Italian flavor.
North Beach has it all: romantic cable cars; Lombard Street (the ―world‘s crookedest‖ street); famous Coit Tower; landmark buildings; the challenging steep slopes of Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill; fantastic bay and city views; an outstanding, international selection of restaurants and caffes, clubs and saloons with live music, poetry readings and caffe opera; excellent small theaters and a diverse cluster of retail shops.
Our cornerstones are the San Francisco Art Institute, City Lights Bookstore, and the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi, the City‘s oldest parish church established during the Gold Rush. North Beach‘s famous streets each have unique identities. Today (Upper) Grant Avenue, formerly the heart of the Beats‘ hangouts, is a four block stretch of contemporary fashion boutiques, bohemian enclaves and cafes. Neon clad Broadway, where Topless began in 1964, remains focused on adult entertainment, strip clubs and great restaurants. Caffeine filled Columbus Avenue is one of America‘s great boulevards with views of the Transamerica Pyramid to the south and Mount Tamalpais in distant Marin to the north. In North Beach not only do you hear Italian, Chinese, Farsi, Arabic, French and Spanish, you also hear bellowing, reassuring fog horns and barking sea lions from the nearby bay, as well as the incessant noisy chatter of wild parrots that have chosen to reside here.
A. P. Giannini October 17, 2004 marked the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bank of Italy, later Bank of America, by Amadeo Peter Giannini. From a tiny ethnic bank in North Beach, the Bank of Italy/Bank of America grew under the leadership of Giannini to become the world‘s largest bank. This bank played a vital role in the development of San Francisco, California, and eventually beyond, to have worldwide significance. The story of A. P. Giannini also epitomizes the American immigrant experience in one of its most dramatic expressions. Locals tell tales that Giannini started the Bank of Italy in the back of a saloon on Green Street. The first actual branch, however, was on the northwest corner of Columbus Avenue and Washington Street. Mel Figoni, Sr. Mel Figoni owned Figoni's Hardware. He worked at the shop since his early teens and eventually bought it, and stopped working just before his death at 89. He could account for every nail in the place. Fascinating old store, caught in a time warp.
Abraham Lincoln Sixteenth President 1861-1865
Lincoln warned the South in his Inaugural Address: "In your hands, my dissatisfied fellow countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous issue of civil war. The government will not assail you.... You have no oath registered in Heaven to destroy the government, while I shall have the most solemn one to preserve, protect and defend it."
Lincoln thought secession illegal, and was willing to use force to defend Federal law and the Union. When Confederate batteries fired on Fort Sumter and forced its surrender, he called on the states for 75,000 volunteers. Four more slave states joined the Confederacy but four remained within the Union. The Civil War had begun. The son of a Kentucky frontiersman, Lincoln had to struggle for a living and for learning. Five months before receiving his party's nomination for President, he sketched his life: "I was born Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. My parents were both born in Virginia, of undistinguished families--second families, perhaps I should say. My mother, who died in my tenth year, was of a family of the name of Hanks.... My father ... removed from Kentucky to ... Indiana, in my eighth year.... It was a wild region, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. There I grew up.... Of course when I came of age I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write, and cipher ... but that was all." Lincoln made extraordinary efforts to attain knowledge while working on a farm, splitting rails for fences, and keeping store at New Salem, Illinois. He was a captain in the Black Hawk War, spent eight years in the Illinois legislature, and rode the circuit of courts for many years. His law partner said of him, "His ambition was a little engine that knew no rest."
He married Mary Todd, and they had four boys, only one of whom lived to maturity. In 1858 Lincoln ran against Stephen A. Douglas for Senator. He lost the election, but in debating with Douglas he gained a national reputation that won him the Republican nomination for President in 1860 As President, he built the Republican Party into a strong national organization. Further, he rallied most of the northern Democrats to the Union cause. On January 1, 1863, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation that declared forever free those slaves within the Confederacy. Lincoln never let the world forget that the Civil War involved an even larger issue. This he stated most movingly in dedicating the military cemetery at Gettysburg: "that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Lincoln won re-election in 1864, as Union military triumphs heralded an end to the war. In his planning for peace, the President was flexible and generous, encouraging Southerners to lay down their arms and join speedily in reunion. The spirit that guided him was clearly that of his Second Inaugural Address, now inscribed on one wall of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C.: "With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds.... " On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, Lincoln was assassinated at Ford's Theatre in Washington by John Wilkes Booth, an actor, who somehow thought he was helping the South. The opposite was the result, for with Lincoln's death, the possibility of peace with magnanimity died.

SOUTH DAKOTA ( The Coyote State ) Year of Statehood Nov. 2, 1889 EARLY SOUTH DAKOTA HISTORY When the first Europeans arrived in present-day South Dakota, Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara and Sioux Indians lived in the area. The first authenticated European exploration of the region was made by François and Louis Joseph de La Vérendrye in 1743. Toward the end of the 1700s, the region was visited by fur trappers and traders working on the Missouri River. In 1803, the United States acquired the area in the Louisiana Purchase. The Lewis and Clark expedition passed through the region between 1804 and 1806. The first permanent settlement was established in 1817 opposite the site of modern Pierre. Settlement of the region was slow until 1874, when gold was found in the Black Hills, in the great Sioux Indian reservation, and large numbers of whites began to flock there, hoping to strike it rich. The federal government halted the settlers and tried to keep them out of the Black Hills until an agreement could be reached with the Sioux. SOUTH DAKOTA'S MIDDLE HISTORY In 1875, after the refusal of the Indians to cede their land, the government made no further attempts to stop the gold seekers. In 1876, other gold lodes were discovered, including the famous Homestake Lode at the Homestake Mine, near Lead, in the southwestern part of the state. The Great Dakota Boom, a period of rapid settlement, occurred between 1879 and 1886. A statehood movement began, and in 1889 the Dakotas were separated. On November 2, 1889, South Dakota was admitted to the Union as the 40th state; Pierre became the capital. The Sioux Indians ceded parts of their reservation west of the Missouri, which were opened for settlement in 1890. Plagued by repeated and long-lasting droughts, South Dakota's farming economy suffered greatly during the next few decades. The problem was alleviated in the 1940s by the construction of massive dam projects on the Missouri River. Four artificial lakes provided flood control, irrigation, hydroelectric power and the start of a flourishing tourist industry. With increased farm mechanization came unemployment, however, and many young people left the state. To reverse this trend, dozens of community development groups were formed in the 1960s to attract new industry. As the 1990s began, state leaders were confident that favorable tax laws and plentiful water would continue to stimulate the economy, although poverty on South Dakota s Indian reservations remained a chronic problem. The state's agricultural economy suffered a setback with the severe flooding of the Missouri and other rivers of the Midwest in 1993.
SOUTH DAKOTA TODAY With fertile soils and extensive grazing lands, South Dakota, nicknamed the Coyote State as well as the Sunshine State, has always had an economy dominated by farming and ranching. Today, tourism and other services are of increasing importance. Manufacturing is largely dominated by the processing of primary products, such as foodstuffs and lumber. South Dakota"s tourist destinations include Mt. Rushmore, the Black Hills, the Gold Rush town of Deadwood, the Corn Palace in Mitchell, Badlands and Wind Cave national parks and the Crazy Horse Memorial. Famous South Dakotans include TV journalist Tom Brokaw, Crazy Horse, U.S. Senator Thomas Daschle, TV host Mary Hart, physicist Dr. Ernest O. Lawrence, politician George McGovern, Olympic runner Billy Mills, USA Today founder Allen Neuharth and Chief Sitting Bull. SOUTH DAKOTA Fun Facts
The faces carved into South Dakota's Mt. Rushmore belong to four presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The carvings average 60 feet from the top of the head to the chin. That's taller than a four-story building. The famous gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok was shot in the back in Deadwood, South Dakota. His friend Calamity Jane is buried beside him. 90 percent of South Dakota is covered with ranches and farms. The Black Hills region of South Dakota—named because the region looks black from a distance—was the site of a late 1870s gold rush, which resulted in the forced removal of many of the area's native peoples. The Crazy Horse Memorial, currently being created in North Dakota's Black Hills, will be the largest sculpture in the world when it is completed. The sculpture is a rendering of Oglala warrior Crazy Horse on horseback. The exterior of Mitchell, South Dakota's Corn Palace is decorated each year with new murals, made entirely of corn and other grains and grasses grown in the area. It has been a tribute to South Dakota's farmers since 1892. In South Dakota's Custer State Park, nearly 1,500 bison roam free—it is one of the world's largest publicly owned herds. In 1973, the reservation town of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, was occupied by 200 Sioux and members of AIM (American Indian Movement) to protest broken Indian treates and demand an investigation into the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The occupation lasted 70 days, and violence in the area continued for the rest of the decade. Only 3 percent of South Dakota is forest. South Dakota produces nearly 6 million metric tons each of corn and hay every year.
