On the same day as his appearance before the Norwegian Geographic Society, Gould had been presented to Norway's King Haakon, and was surprised when at the conclusion of their interview the king had conferred upon him the Knight's Cross, 1st Class, of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olaf, and suggested that he wear it to that evening's lecture. Gould was the recipient of dozens of impressive medals and significant awards, but he was particularly fond of this cross and wore it frequently in his lapel.
