Folk singer, ad man penned lyrics
Travellers founder, political backroomer, rewrote This Land with a Canadian twist
By Charles MANDEL Special to The Globe and Mail Tuesday, November 26, 2002 -- Page R11
Wordsmith and marketing executive Jerry GOODIS, as well-known for his advertising slogans as for rewriting This Land Is Our Land for the landmark folk group The Travellers, has died at age 73.
Mr. GOODIS's facility with words ranged from the nationalistic pride of the folksong's lyrics, to the crassly commercial but nonetheless equally memorable Harvey's Makes Your Hamburger a Beautiful Thing. "His forte was the spoken word," said Jerry GRAY/GREY, a life-long friend of Mr. GOODIS's. "He could sell anything to anybody, as happened later in the advertising business."
A jazz fan who loved the music of Stan KENTON and Woody HERMAN, Mr. GOODIS was the son of a union organizer/tailor in Toronto's garment district. He studied art at the city's Central Technical High School, but gained his real education through the Communist-leaning United Jewish People's Order to which both his and Mr. GRAY/GREY's parents belonged.
In the early 1950s, both Mr. GOODIS and Mr. GRAY/GREY sang in the United Jewish People's Order's youth choir, a group of some 18 kids that would travel around Ontario and sing folk music and labour songs on picket lines. The youngsters spent summers at the United Jewish People's Order's camp, Naivelt, northwest of Toronto, where they'd sing songs and swap stories at informal hootenannies. The mother of Zal YANOVSKY -- he would go on to fame as the Loving Spoonful's guitarist -- acted as camp director, and renowned American folksinger Pete SEEGER was a frequent visitor. "It was a cauldron of folk music," Mr. GRAY/GREY recalled.
In 1953, Mr. GOODIS and Mr. GRAY/GREY, along with Gray's sister Helen, Sid DOLGAY and Oscar ROSS formed The Travellers, drawing inspiration from Mr. SEEGER and his group, The Weavers. According to authors Ted and Alex BARRIS in their book, Making Music, when The Travellers made their debut at the United Jewish People's Order's national convention in 1953, "they sang their complete repertoire of three songs, and when the audience called for more, they sang all three songs again."
In 1954, Mr. SEEGER told The Travellers they might as well rewrite Woody GUTHRIE's classic anthem to America, This Land Is Our Land, because no one south of the border could hear it at the time. Mr. GUTHRIE, Mr. SEEGER and others were under investigation as Communists and radio stations had blacklisted their music. At a house party, Mr. GOODIS and the others began playing around with the lyrics, first writing "from Newfoundland to the Vancouver Island." The group changed the song to its better-known version ("from Bonavista to the Vancouver Island") in time for a talent-hunt show on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-Television called Pick the Stars.
The Travellers sang This Land Is Our Land on the show and the letters of acclaim from viewers poured in. In the following decade, the song became such a huge hit that when singers like Peter, Paul and Mary or the Kingston Trio came to Canada, they'd launch into the American version and then look puzzled when Canadian audiences began jeering them. "The song lives on," Mr. GRAY/GREY said. "It's The Travellers' signature song and has been since those early days."
Mr. GOODIS recorded Across Canada With The Travellers and The Travellers Sing Songs of North America with the band. Despite the group's growing fame, Mr. GOODIS remained modest about his role. His son David remembers that Mr. GOODIS would always joke he lacked talent.
"He couldn't sing, but he started the group so they couldn't kick him out," David said. "That was the line he always used to use."
As it turned out, nobody pushed Mr. GOODIS from the band. He quit in 1961 to form an ad agency that would become Goodis Goldberg Soren and go on to create some of the catchiest product slogans around. As Mr. GOODIS avidly pursued singing, he'd also fostered an equal interest in advertising. While working at his first job, cutting stencils for mimeograph machines, Mr. Goodis hit on the idea of starting a direct-mail company. With his friend and later-to-be fellow Traveller Oscar ROSS, they began Rosgood Advertising.
"We used to say, let's do it even though we're not going to make money. But we'll get samples. But we never got very far with those samples," Mr. ROSS said.
Mr. GOODIS managed advertising for a Toronto jewellery-store chain and did a catalogue for a children's-wear distributor, but it was while singing for The Travellers that he met his future ad-agency partner. Sam GOLDBERG worked as the group's music director and manager, but like Goodis he saw a future in advertising. Carl DAIR, a graphic designer, joined them, but ultimately their third partner was Al SOREN.
Their first break came when they landed the account for Hush Puppies, a then-unknown brand of shoe. They had $7,000 to launch the campaign, so for $900 the agency created a 20-second television commercial featuring a basset hound. The unlikely ad sparked sales and the accounts rolled in. The Canadian Encyclopedia reports that the firm's billings quickly reached $30-million.
Mr. GOODIS is widely credited for creating such slogans as, "We care about the shape you're in" for Wonderbra, and, "At Speedy, you're a somebody" for Speedy Muffler King. However, his colleagues said copywriters and art directors actually penned the lines. Doug LINTON, who worked as a creative director at Goodis Goldberg Soren, said Mr. GOODIS critiqued advertising brilliantly and encouraged creative thought. "He convinced the captains of industry, the people who purchased advertising, that they could make money by doing advertising that had some wit and artistry about it."
Politics also attracted Mr. GOODIS. In 1968, he attended the Liberal Party convention and came back excited over the prospects of a rising star who might one day become prime minister, Pierre TRUDEAU. " From then on, whenever election time was getting close, my dad would immerse himself in that," David GOODIS remembered. Along with Senator Keith DAVEY, Mr. GOODIS became one of Prime Minister Trudeau's most trusted re-election team members.
After leaving advertising, Mr. GOODIS founded The Jerry Goodis Business Education Group and helped set up programs for young entrepreneurs at several universities and colleges. As late as 1998, Hamilton's McMaster University hired him to help rebrand the educational institution.
After a lifetime in Toronto, Mr. GOODIS moved to Harrison Hot Springs in British Columbia, where he entered semi-retirement. In the last couple of years of his life, according to Mr. GRAY/GREY, Mr. GOODIS reunited with The Travellers, helping with publicity around a National Film Board production on the band. "I think in his later years," Mr. GRAY/GREY said, "he began to appreciate the value the Travellers had on the Canadian psyche. In many ways, he may have forgotten his roots and in later years when he wasn't doing as much in the business world, he loved what The Travellers were doing and loved the part he played. After all, he's the founder."
Mr. GOODIS died of cancer on Nov. 8. He leaves his third wife, Joyce SEIDEL- GOODIS of Harrison Hot Springs, and children Leslie, David and Noah.

Carried cans across Canada, selling shows to nascent local television stations
By Carol COOPER
Carrying cans of film across the country, sometimes screening them in feed stores and warehouses, he brought American shows to Canadian homes. John A. MacDONALD, one of Canada's first television-show salesmen has died, aged 72.
Beginning his career in 1958 with Screen Gems, the television program sales arm of Columbia Pictures, Mr. MacDONALD sold shows such as Father Knows Best, Rin Tin Tin, and the Flintstones to buyers at fledgling television stations and helped them develop their programming.
"He was a mentor in those days when I knew very little," said Merv STONE, who spent 28 years as head of programming and acquisitions at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television. As operations manager for CHAT-Television in Medicine Hat, Alta., until 1960, Mr. STONE was among Mr. MacDONALD's early clients.
After 23 years with Columbia Pictures Television, Mr. MacDONALD spent five years as vice-president and managing director of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Television Canada, opening its Canadian office in Toronto when he joined the company in 1981.
Respected for his diligence, integrity and knowledge, Mr. MacDONALD belonged to a close-knit group of distributors who worked for competing companies.
"The extraordinary thing about this fraternity was that we admired each other, we were all Friends, and there was never any knifing in the back," said David McLAUGHLIN, once a distributor for Warner Bros. and later Mr. MacDONALD's boss and friend. "If a client said: 'I'm interested in such and such a show,' we never said: 'Oh, that's terrible. What you need is my show, because it's so much better.'"
The affable and articulate Mr. MacDONALD was also known for his sense of humour and for an ability to mimic. "Whenever we met, it was never a simple hello," Mr. McLAUGHIN said. "It was usually show-biz - showtime. We'd cut up and make gags and in three minutes, we were rolling around, laughing ourselves to pieces."
In fact, like many in the early days of television, Mr. MacDONALD did start out in show business.
Born in Brantford, Ontario, in 1930, he was the only child of Scottish immigrants, his father a ship plater. The family went without a telephone until Mr. MacDONALD was 6 and they belonged to a church that had no minister, organ or choir. Congregation members, including young John, sang a cappella--in harmony.
His father paid him a nickel for each book read and a penny for each word spelled and defined correctly. During his childhood, Mr. MacDONALD absorbed works by Dickens and Robert Louis Stevenson. In 1941, the family moved to Victoria, so that Mr. MacDONALD's father could work in the shipyards. Mr. MacDONALD attended Esquimalt High School.
The school's strong arts program whetted his appetite for music and theatre. Mr. MacDONALD appeared in school plays, musicals and the school band. After graduation, he left home to pursue his love of the stage.
While working at a bank, Mr. MacDONALD sang and acted in productions by Victoria's Gilbert and Sullivan Society, then the world's largest, the Victoria Little Theatre and the summer Starlight Theatre at night. Guest actors from the summer theatre, Vancouver's Theatre Under the Stars, where Bruno GERUSSI and Robert GOULET spent part of their early careers, appeared in the Starlight productions. in turn, Starlight actors were invited to audition with Theatre Under the Stars.
Mr. MacDONALD, aspiring to perform full-time, joined Theatre Under the Stars in 1949 and appeared in five productions for each of the following five seasons, including the part of Sly Masterson in Guys and Dolls.
At Theatre Under the Stars in 1951, Mr. MacDONALD, met Sheilagh HENDERSON, a dancer from the Winnipeg Ballet who performed with the company to supplement her winter income. "The singers always liked to take out the dancers," she said. They married in 1953.
With little money, the newlywed Mr. MacDONALD often entertained himself and his wife by playing the piano, improving on his self-taught skill. He loved music, especially jazz and the big bands.
And he continued acting. With the Vancouver Little Theatre MacDONALD played the lead opposite film stars Peggy Ann GARNER and Mercedes McCAMBRIDGE and performed in early Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Vancouver television musicals between 1953 and 1956.
Finally needing a better day job he joined Screen Gems as its western sales representative in 1958, yet continued acting in his spare time. A move to Toronto in 1961 to become eastern sales supervisor left him no time to perform and in 1974, he was promoted to vice-president of sales and director of Columbia Pictures Television in Canada.
While on business trips, his piano-playing ability proved a good companion. Often lonely, he would ask to use the piano in hotel bars, and played requests for those who gathered, said his daughter Jeannie HEROLD.
Having a father who sold television shows didn't gain her any status with her schoolmates, though. Most thought her father repaired televisions. Still they perked up when he got her an autograph of Shirley JONES and David CASSIDY of The Partridge Family.
Despite rubbing shoulders with stars in Hollywood and Cannes, her father remained modest, she said. "He always said: 'They put their pants on one leg at a time. They're just the same as you and me.'"
Mr. MacDONALD loved old musicals and when with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, brought certain films home for family and Friends to view. Once during a poolside screening of the Battle of Britain at friend Alan KEYWORTH's house, a gust of wind blew the screen into the pool. "We got to know the neighbours rather quickly," KEYWORTH said.
A fan of television producer and director Seymour BERNS's stories, Mr. MacDONALD, who liked to talk - a lot - was fond of recounting them. Once in Hollywood, he began to tell a BERNS tale, forgetting that BERNS himself was in the room. As he went on with the anecdote, embellishing and enhancing it along the way, BERNS turned and said: "Shouldn't that story be over by now?."
But Mr. MacDONALD's theatrical bent never ended. He orchestrated the lighting for his wife's ballet-school shows and did son Glen's makeup for Halloween. And as well as being a director of the Broadcast Executives Society from 1972 to 1978 and its chairman in 1974 and 1975, he produced the organization's Christmas luncheon for many years, writing scripts and organizing entertainment.
After one successful event, the crowd of 1,000 in the Sheraton Hotel in Toronto rose to give Mr. MacDONALD, busy directing activities from the control room, a standing ovation. Mr. McLAUGHIN hurled a roll at Mr. MacDONALD, who was behind the control room's glass. Many followed suit and Mr. MacDONALD joined in the fun, ducking to avoid the "hits."
Mr. MacDONALD also helped set up the Ruth Hancock Scholarship for students pursuing a career in broadcasting and revamped the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' award ceremony. He retired in 1987.
As for his very Canadian name: "He always said he was working on the sir," Sheilagh MacDONALD said. Mr. MacDONALD leaves his wife of 49 years, Sheilagh, son Glen, daughter Jeannie HEROLD and six grandchildren.
John A. MacDONALD, actor, salesman; born in Brantford, Ontario, March 25, 1930; died in Markham, Ontario, on November 23, 2002.
