A world-class forensic scientist
Expert in hair and fibre analysis and DNA techniques helped revolutionized police investigations worldwide
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail Tuesday, November 25, 2003 - Page R7
Ottawa -- A simple demonstration using a red pullover and an ultraviolet light during one of the United State's most infamous murder cases helped cement Barry GAUDETTE's reputation as an internationally renowned forensic scientist.
While testifying as an expert witness during the 1981 trial of Wayne WILLIAMS for the murder of several black children in Atlanta, Mr. GAUDETTE asked members of the jury to pass the sweater back and forth. Then he switched off the lights in the courtroom and shone an ultraviolet light on the jury members, revealing fibres from the pullover all over them..
His testimony made a strong connection between carpet fibres from Mr. WILLIAMS's residences and vehicles, and fibres found on several of the young victims, including some whose bodies were found submerged in water. Soon after, Mr. WILLIAMS was convicted as the first black serial killer in the U.S.
"It was a graphic, innovative and very compelling demonstration that showed how fibre transfer worked, and it led to a conviction," said Skip PALENIK, a forensic scientist and president of Microtrace in Chicago, who was involved in the WILLIAMS trial.
"Barry's demonstration helped the jury buy into the theory of fibre transfer... they were hostile to the idea that a black man could kill other blacks, but it tied WILLIAMS to the victims. It was the kind of demonstration that brought science home to a jury.'' Mr. GAUDETTE, a native of Edmonton, died in Ottawa on October 1 after a brief battle with multiple myeloma. He was At the time of the Atlanta child-murders case, Mr. GAUDETTE, a forensic scientist by training, was an expert in hair and fibre analysis. Later, he would help implement the use of DNA technology in Royal Canadian Mounted Police laboratories across Canada. His findings in hair and fibre analysis and his legwork in DNA helped revolutionize police investigative tools in Canada and around the world, so much so that his work became instrumental in tracking down society's most feared criminals.
Born in Edmonton on April 2, 1947, the oldest of six children, Mr. GAUDETTE received an honours bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of Calgary in 1969 and that year was hired by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to work as a forensic scientist in its hair and fibre section in Edmonton. In 1971 he married Leslie Ann CLARK, whom he'd met while the pair worked at Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., in Pinawa, Manitoba
He worked for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Edmonton until 1980, during which time he wrote a groundbreaking paper and published various research articles on the high probability that human scalp hair comparisons could be used to link persons to crimes. "His work proved hair comparisons were even more conclusive than blood," said Ms. GAUDETTE, an epidemiologist for Health Canada in Ottawa.
"Barry showed for the first time scientifically that human hair comparisons were a legitimate type of examination to pursue. His work put what had been conventional wisdom onto a scientific footing," adds Mr. PALENIK, whose company provides expert scientific analysis and consultation in the area of small-particle analysis.
After undergoing a year's training with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in hair and fibre analysis, Mr. GAUDETTE was accredited in 1970 as an expert witness and often testified in court cases in Edmonton and later across Canada and in the United States. In 1980, he was transferred to Ottawa to be the chief scientist for hair and fibre analysis at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's central forensic laboratory.
"Barry developed the hair and fibre field and brought it to prominence in the world arena," said John BOWEN, chief scientific officer for Royal Canadian Mounted Police Forensic Laboratory Services in Ottawa, who was trained in hair and fibre analysis by Mr. GAUDETTE in the mid-1980s.
"He was an individual with a lot of vision, a world-class expert in his field.'' In the late 1980s, Mr. GAUDETTE envisioned the potential of DNA analysis in forensic science. He helped implement the technology in Royal Canadian Mounted Police labs across Canada and worked to promote the national DNA databank legislation that came into force in 1997.
"Barry did not invent DNA testing," said Mr. PALENIK, "but he saw that it was a powerful tool that could give investigators an ultimate kind of identification. Blood, semen and hair were good, but he recognized that DNA was as good as a fingerprint. He was the one who said the Royal Canadian Mounted Police should put all of its resources into developing DNA as a forensic tool. He said 'let's not waste time on our old ways.' "
It's no stretch, said Mr. PALENIK, to link Mr. GAUDETTE's work in DNA to the conviction of many criminals linked to crimes by their DNA and exoneration of others whose DNA did not match DNA samples taken from crime scenes.
"Barry GAUDETTE made a large contribution to the DNA business because it has significantly changed the investigation procedures in policing," said John ARNOLD, chief scientist for the Ottawa-based Canadian Police Research Centre, a collaboration of the National Research Council, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, which was set up to develop tools for use by police.
"Today, they are solving cases that could never have been solved before without this kind of technology."
In 1999, Mr. GAUDETTE became manager of the Canadian Police Research Centre, where his innovative ways continued. Before retiring in 2002, he helped develop a website, scheduled to be up and running next year, to provide Web-based training for police. He was also involved in developing a cross-Canada standard for protective equipment worn by police. The standard is expected to be in place by the end of 2004, Mr. ARNOLD said.
Even when he was in the twilight years of his career, Mr. GAUDETTE had an appetite for fieldwork and was never content to sit in a cushy office chair and watch his subordinates do all of the work.
"When some people get into management they don't want to work. They want to be the one who directs it. That wasn't Barry," Mr. ARNOLD said.
His stellar reputation led to a position on the U.S./Canada bilateral counterterrorism research and development committee from 1999 to 2002. He received numerous accolades for his pioneering forensic work. In 1996, he was awarded the government of Canada Public Service Award of Excellence, and in 2003 a Golden Jubilee Medal.
Friends and colleagues said that away from the job, Mr. GAUDETTE enjoyed time with his family and took part in community affairs.
Mr. GAUDETTE leaves his wife Leslie and children Lisa, 18, and Darrell, 22.

-In loving memory of a dear husband, Alvin, who passed away April 21, 2000.
Our lives go on without you,
And nothing is the same,
We have to hide our heartache
When someone speaks your name.
Sad are these hearts that love you
Silent the tears that fall
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.
The special years will not return
When we were all together
But with the love wihtin our hearts
You'll be with us forever.

Albert John RENWICK
By Shane RENWICK Wednesday, September 3, 2003 - Page A22
Father, grandfather, carpenter, steward of the land. Born June 6, 1917 in Dalkeith, Ontario Died August 15, in Ottawa, of Lou Gehrig's disease, aged 86.
Albert (Bert) John RENWICK was born on the family farm near Vankleek Hill in eastern Ontario. He was a middle child of seven born into a family that lived off the land during hard economic times. Dad's upbringing generated the themes of his life -- love of family and the land, and a deep appreciation of nature.
My sisters, Donna and Karen, and I grew up listening to tales of Dad's early life. There was rarely money, he said, but there was always plenty to eat, lots to celebrate and a supportive family. Dad kept us spellbound with stories of his days in a one-room schoolhouse; plowing fields with the team of horses working in the sugar bush; making regular trips by horse and wagon to the cheese factory and the sawmill; going to barn dances and making trips to "The Hill" in a sleigh over snow when "the drifts were as high as the telegraph wires."
Early experiences had a profound influence on my father's life. He developed independence, a dedication to hard work, frugality and morality; and a desire to work with his hands. Dad's shy and gentle nature, sense of humour, enthusiasm and generosity were formed in those early years and endeared him to all, especially his grandchildren.
As a young man, Dad took the practical skills he learned on the farm and put them to use. He moved to Ottawa in the 1940s to work at Vendall Machines building navigation equipment for the military. In 1952, he started a carpentry business, married Geraldine BOWN and built his own house. He worked as his own boss in the building and renovation business in the Ottawa area for the next 30 years.
Dad's many loyal customers were impressed not only by the quality of his workmanship but by how hard he worked. It seemed fitting that the three-year-old son of one of Dad's customers, who loved noisy power tools but had some difficulty with surnames, used to exclaim when he saw Dad's vehicle pull into the laneway: "Mom, look! Here comes Mr. Racket!"
Dad was proud of his work. Nothing made his eyes sparkle more than to recall a customer saying, "Mr. RENWICK, you did a lovely job!" or a neighbour complimenting him on his award-winning flower garden. It touched him when the fruits of his labour made others happy.
Dad's pride and joy was Rideau Trail Farm, a 19th-century homestead on the Rideau River near Merrickville that he and Mom bought in the late 1950s. This property became a focus for his energy and a summer home for his three children and 11 grandchildren. He restored the gingerbread-brick house and log sheds; built split-rail fences and a horse barn and bird houses; grew organic berries that are still famous in the area; planted native conifers by the thousands; and carved riding and ski trails out of the woods. "The farm" lit a pioneer spirit in Dad and made him feel honoured to be the steward of a piece of Ontario history.
Trees were special in Dad's life. Trees provided the wood with which he made his living, connected him to nature and allowed him to influence the future. Planting and tending to trees were Dad's passions right to his final days. He would remind us often that our lives are short compared with those of trees and that we should be humbled by this. Dad knew that by planting trees he would leave a living legacy on Earth for centuries after he was gone.
Dad died peacefully surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with a cruel disease that robbed him of his mobility but left his senses intact.
He passed away knowing that we were proud of the way he tended to his family and his land.
Shane is Bert's eldest son.
