Bob Hope, KBE KCSG (May 29, 1903–July 27, 2003) was an English-born, Academy Award-winning entertainer who appeared in vaudeville, on Broadway, in radio, television, movies, and on numerous USO tours for U.S. military personnel.
Hope was the fifth of seven sons. His English father, William Henry Hope, was a stonemason from Weston-super-Mare and his Welsh mother, Avis Townes, was a light opera singer who later had to find work as a cleaning woman. The family lived in Weston-super-Mare, then Whitehall and St. George in Bristol, before moving to Cleveland, Ohio in 1908. The family traveled to the United States as passengers on board the SS Philadelphia. They were inspected at Ellis Island on March 30, 1908. Hope became a U.S. citizen in 1920 at the age of seventeen.
Hope is noted for his work with the US Armed Forces and his renowned USO tours. Hope always incorporated a handful of talented performers and celebrities to accompany him on these tours. Most of the time he was flanked by beautiful television and film actresses such as Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable. Throughout his career he was decorated by many presidents for his humanitarian work.
