(AP) – Bob Dylan finally has his hands on his Nobel Literature diploma and
medal.

Klas Ostergren, a member of the Swedish Academy, said the 75-year-old
American singer-songwriter received his award during a small gathering
Saturday afternoon at a hotel next to the conference center where Dylan
was performing a concert later that night.

Ostergren told The Associated Press that the ceremony was a small, intimate
event in line with the singer’s wishes, with just academy members and a
member of Dylan’s staff attending.

Alfred Bernhard Nobel (October 21, 1833 – December 10, 1896)

Swedish chemist, engineer, and inventor of dynamite, Alfred Nobel used his
fortune posthumously to institute the Nobel Prizes. In his lifetime he issued
350 patents internationally and established 90 armaments factories. He grew
up wealthy after his father invented modern plywood and filed his first patent
himself in 1857, for a gas meter. While studying explosives, a shed he was
using for the preparation of nitroglycerin, exploded at a factory in Heleneborg, 
Stockholm and killed five people, including his younger brother Emil.
