KANE, The Honourable Justice Joseph Charles (1928-2005)
Retired Superior Court Judge Peacefully passed away Tuesday, January 11, 2005 at Providence Health Centre, Toronto. Joe was an inspiration to so many people throughout his life. He was our hero. He was our best friend and he was someone who led by example. Sadly missed by his wife Janet (PERKINS) and sons, Terry & Helen (Calgary), John Timothy (Toronto), Steven (Toronto), Christopher (Chicago) and daughters Dianne and Bruno BENEDETTI (Mississauga) and Wendy KANE (Toronto.) Proud grandfather of David BENEDETTI (Mississauga,) Lisa ALLANA (Markham,) Kiah and Sage KANE (Calgary.) Proud brother of Francis and wife Marilyn (Fort Worth), Jeff and wife Madeline (Burlington) and sisters Mary KANE (Toronto) and Jeanne BURNS (Toronto.) Predeceased by sisters, Ruth KELLY and Patricia KANE and brother, Fred KANE. Deeply missed by so many Friends and colleagues, in particular Leonard GOODMAN. As a respected member of the judicial and legal communities, Joe was admired for his sense integrity and honesty. In 1978, after a 23-year career as lawyer and Queen's Counsel, Joe was appointed a County Court Judge in the City of Toronto. At the age of 49, Joe was one of the youngest judges ever appointed and he served on the bench until 1997 as a Superior Court Judge. While law ruled most of his working days, his true passion was hockey. His contributions to the sport in Canada and internationally were far reaching - from coaching house league and the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, then President of the Central Pro League, Director with Hockey Canada and eventually Arbitrator with the National Hockey League. Joe loved being in a rink and around young people. While he experienced so many rewarding moments in hockey his greatest thrill was being able to coach his four sons when they were young. There was no prouder parent in the arena 7 nights a week! Words which best describe Joe are - loyal friend and kind soul. He used to say, 'a person's wealth is not measured by the amount of money in his bank account but rather, the number of Friends he acquires throughout his life'. This would mean that Joseph Charles KANE is one of the wealthiest people in the world! The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Friday, January 14th. We welcome you to celebrate his life at Leaside United Church, 822 Millwood Road (at McRae Drive), on Saturday, January 15, 2005 at 11: 00 o'clock. If desired, donations to the Houses of Providence, Providence Health Centre, 3276 St. Clair Avenue East, Toronto M1L 1W1, would be appreciated.

Tom PATTERSON, Impresario: 1920-2005
He was a hometown boy not long returned from the Second World War when he had the bright idea of holding a Shakespeare festival in Stratford, Ontario, writes John ALLEMANG. In 1953, employing a combination of enthusiasm, chutzpah, good luck and characteristic innocence, he pulled it off
By John ALLEMANG, Thursday, February 24, 2005 - Page S7
Tom PATTERSON, the man whose dreams and determination brought the Stratford Festival to life, has shuffled off his mortal coil.
Shakespearean quotes weren't his line when as a young war veteran he first set out to bring summer theatre to a small southwestern Ontario hometown that improbably was filled with references to the Bard. Stratford in the 1940s may have had a Romeo St. and a King Lear public school and a river Avon where graceful white swans nipped at anyone trying to get too friendly. But it was no outpost of high culture - a steam-locomotive repair plant dominated the local economy, and the idea of a Shakespearean festival in the heart of Ontario farm country should have been dismissed as utter craziness.
Steam turned into diesel, the plant was declared redundant, and suddenly a failing Stratford was open to the inspired lunacy that propelled Tom PATTERSON through life. Though his theatre experience was largely limited to the London music halls he'd patronized during the war - even as a much-feted luminary later in life, he was happy to declare that he didn't know "one damn thing" about the dramatic arts -- he couldn't shake off the marketing man's logic that a place named Stratford should have its own stage.
In 1951, barely 30 years old and something of an itinerant journalist who specialized in writing about sewage plants for Civic Administrator magazine, he took his idea forward to the Stratford town council. The key to understanding the unlikely success of the festival can be seen in what followed - Tom PATTERSON was able to convince a sober group of Ontario burghers that a theatre was a dream worth pursuing, a sign both that Mr. PATTERSON possessed rare powers of persuasion and that the small-town leaders were a lot less sober and a lot more daring than they're ordinarily given credit for.
In 1952, Mr. PATTERSON was dispatched to New York City, reckoned to be the capital of the theatre world, with $125 of civic funds. He admitted in his autobiography First Stage that he didn't quite know how one went about starting a theatre festival, but such innocence was always his greatest asset. He decided to seek the advice and support of Laurence Olivier, who was then appearing on Broadway. When getting through to Lord Olivier proved impossible, Mr. PATTERSON talked his way into the Rockefeller Foundation, which enabled him to report back to his Stratford team in his highly exaggerated way that the Rockefellers were on side - he threw in Lord Olivier's name as well, to tide himself over until he had a comparable big name to wave around.
By the next year, he had those names: Tyrone GUTHRIE, Alec Guinness and Irene Worth all agreed to launch a project that would never have happened if they'd reacted with Lord Olivier's common sense. It was one thing to talk about bringing a theatre to Stratford (PATTERSON's early idea was that performances could be held in the town band shell). But to lure the most restless thinker of the British theatre along with two of the genre's leading actors to an empty lot above the small town's baseball diamond - that took some extraordinary combination of enthusiasm, chutzpah and good luck.
Mr. PATTERSON found Mr. GUTHRIE at exactly the right time. The Irish director was obsessed with the idea of producing Shakespeare on a thrust stage that would project right into the surrounding audience and supply the kind of Elizabethan intimacy theatre lost when it moved into the proscenium setting. In England, people scoffed.
He was open to the idea of starting something new, and came to Stratford as artistic adviser in 1952 to see what could be done. In his memoirs, Mr. PATTERSON tells of the subterfuge he'd dreamed up to help win over the sophisticated Irishman to his new setting. Fearful that Stratford's plain-looking downtown might not impress a man used to London's West End, Mr. PATTERSON as chauffeur took a detour along the more presentable Avon and pointed out the rise of turf along the river where both of them could fulfill their dreams.
"His perseverance was indomitable," Mr. GUTHRIE later observed.
Mr. PATTERSON needn't have worried. His future artistic director was no snob, and acted as if he was right at home in the Ontario town, spending half the night drinking and talking with his hotel clerk to get a feel for the spirit of the place. His only real concern was the question of the thrust stage, and the likelihood of something so revolutionary getting a hearing in a conservative Canadian town.
But Stratford's leaders were too practical-minded to be caught up in parochial squabbles about which stage was best. Mr. GUTHRIE had been recommended to them by Dora Mavor Moore, the doyenne of Canadian theatre. If he wanted a thrust stage, so be it.
Mr. GUTHRIE was supremely well-connected, and Mr. PATTERSON found it easier to make his pitch to leading actors after that. While the Festival from the start was determined to make use of Canadian talent - William Hutt, Don Harron and Timothy Findley were among those in the inaugural casts - it was felt that name performers such as Mr. Guinness were needed to get the festival going and ensure that the banks didn't foreclose on the local worthies who'd put their assets up for security. Mr. PATTERSON was also helped by the London connections of his former employer at Civic Administrator magazine, arts patron and Maclean-Hunter chairman Floyd CHALMERS. Making Friends in high places was never a problem for Stratford's first general manager.
Though general manager was his title, Mr. PATTERSON had no gift for the finicky details of administration, and was more likely to be found playing pinochle with actor Jason Robards than analyzing a balance sheet. His methods belonged more to the seat-of-the-pants school of getting things done fast and moving forward. When it came to pricing tickets for the opening night of July 13, 1953, he didn't commission economic studies or embark on a fact-finding mission. Instead, he just bought a New York paper, checked the prices of the best theatres and decided that Stratford should have the bravado to match them.
His high-energy, anything-is-possible style was more of an asset, especially in the festival's feverish first year. Alec Guinness had it written into his contract that he could walk away from the production of Richard III if the Stratford's first tent theatre wasn't ready for rehearsals three weeks before opening night. In fact, the theatre wasn't ready until a week before first night. Until then, the celebrated stars of the London stage made do with a tin-roofed barn filled with mating sparrows. And when they moved over to the festival theatre, it was discovered from Mr. Guinness' first soliloquy that the newly laid concrete bowl effectively muffled all sound.
Members of the Stratford board were pressed into service stapling custom-designed matting into the concrete. On a sweltering opening night, all went splendidly - church bells pealed, a regimental cannon was fired, Louis Applebaum's brass fanfare resounded, and a crazy dream came to be in a tent theatre where you could hear the screams of the town's baseball players on the adjacent diamond.
Nothing in his later life could match that moment for Tom PATTERSON, but he had too much joie de vivre to mind the inevitable conflicts that a growing enterprise created. As Stratford's general manager, he felt more at home with actors than with other managers. "He enjoyed life, sang a lot and had a great time," actor Barry MacGregor last year said of his friend.
After the festival's first year, Mr. PATTERSON founded the touring theatrical company Canadian Players with actor Douglas Campbell, and later served as founding director of the Canadian Theatre Centre, founding president of the National Theatre School of Canada, and founder of the Dawson City Gold Rush Festival. He worked with the Stratford Festival until 1969, when he joined a consulting company. A year later, he criticized the festival organization for being out of touch with local interests. He later described himself as a freelance theatre consultant and worked on arts festivals across North America.
As time passed, Stratford became better able to single out the contribution he'd made to its success and dedicated the Tom Patterson Theatre to him. The town of Stratford also named an island in the Avon after its least solitary citizen - by that point, his store of quotations was good enough for him to joke how Donne was wrong in insisting that no man is an island.
Tributes had come his way long before. In 1967, he was made a member of the Order of Canada in 1967 and promoted to officer 10 years later. He also received honorary degrees from the University of Toronto and the University of Western Ontario.
"I can safely say I think (PATTERSON) has done more as an ambassador of goodwill than any leader of our country has ever done," the Montreal-born Christopher Plummer said yesterday. The actor has performed often at the festival.
In his later years, Mr. PATTERSON was beset by ill health, suffering both a tracheotomy and laryngectomy that took away most of his vocal power but in no way deprived him of his ability to command a room. He spent his last years in the veterans wing of Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital, where he was renowned as a live wire. Despite his disabilities, he still found ways to get back to Stratford - for two seasons he organized a visit for his fellow hospital residents, who delighted as much in seeing their comrade applauded by the appreciative crowds as they did in theatre's more Shakespearean moments. On one trip, he strayed from the group to visit with the actors and actually managed to get himself locked up in the theatre for several hours.
By this time, the ebullient Tom PATTERSON could talk only in short bursts through a often-wonky voice amplifier, but it in no way subdued his good humour. When someone generously observed that he was looking well on his final visit to Stratford, Mr. PATTERSON replied, in his amplifier's deadened monotone, "I don't think I could play Darth Vader with this thing."
Harry Thomas PATTERSON was born in Stratford, Ontario, on June 11, 1920. He died on yesterday at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto after a long illness. He was 84. He is survived by his wife, Pat, and by children Bob, Tim, Lucy Ann and Lyle Scott. He was predeceased by his daughter, Penny. Funeral information was not immediately available, but the festival plans a memorial service on March 13.

Margaret ALLEMANG, Nurse And Scholar: 1914-2005
Pioneer in applying methodology to traditional care, she wrote the first paper on Canadian nursing history
By Sabitri GHOSH, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, July 25, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Decades after the entrance exam that secured her a spot in the University of Toronto's School of Nursing, Margaret ALLEMANG -- by then a much-honoured professor emeritus -- was still mulling over her response to the question of why she wanted to be a nurse. "I guess I just used the pat answer," she mused in a 1993 interview, "that 'I wanted to be of service to others."
An inveterate deep thinker, Dr. ALLEMANG could never settle for a pat answer if a more profound one could be unearthed. As her nephew, Globe and Mail writer John ALLEMANG, recalls, "She had a professorial way of dealing with issues: you always allow time for further thought and consideration, and you don't close off any avenues for possibility." Yet in spite of her second-guessing, what she said in 1937 proved inescapably true -- both of her career as a researcher, teacher and historian, and of herself in general.
One of a new breed of nurses who emerged from an academic program instead of from an in-hospital apprenticeship, Dr. ALLEMANG was a pioneer in applying research methodology to traditional nursing. "Essentially, nursing wasn't a research-oriented profession or academic pursuit," Mr. ALLEMANG says. "It was simply the business of training nurses to be nurses. So she was kind of on the edge of that transition, where they started doing clinical studies of nursing care."
Her 1956 master's thesis on "factors affecting the sleep of patients" was among the earliest dissertations in clinical nursing. It was unique, too, for its emphasis on the individual patient -- a marked contrast from other studies of the era. Throughout the 1960s, Dr. ALLEMANG continued to broaden the purview of contemporary clinical research, chronicling the experiences of hospitalized cardiac patients and leading an experimental research unit at Sunnybrook Hospital trying out more patient-centred systems of nursing.
"She was very concerned with the patient as a person -- a whole person," says her friend and teaching colleague, Judith YOUNG.
Dr. ALLEMANG's quest to meet the "patient's physical, emotional and spiritual needs" was one charted by personal experience. As a child, she suffered from osteomyelitis, a chronic bone infection that left her bed-ridden for most of her youth. Later, studying philosophy in university, she came to embrace the existentialist view of how a crisis like hers could be transformative. "There was the idea in my thinking," she said, "that this fits into the sick person, because illness is a crisis, that people can grow and learn through illness."
For her PhD, Dr. ALLEMANG initially wanted to construct a theory of nursing "based on the existentialist approach to man." But her PhD committee at the University of Washington nixed the idea. So instead, she turned to the development of nursing education in North America from 1873 to 1950, focusing on the leaders who ushered in its most important changes. The project took her nearly 20 years to complete, with Dr. ALLEMANG working on it in between teaching duties at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Nursing. She was, remarks her nephew, "a great procrastinator."
When Dr. ALLEMANG's paper finally did come out in 1976, it was the first ever published on Canadian nursing history. Moreover, points out Kathryn McPHERSON, dean of women's studies at York University, it also deposited a crucial piece of scholarship into the hands of social historians just as they were starting to take stock of women's history-making contributions. "It was consistent with a genre of women's history which was about looking at Canada's female leadership," Dr. McPHERSON says.
While pursuing her PhD, Dr. ALLEMANG became familiar with another group of history-making women through the Nursing Sisters Association of Canada. She herself served as a nursing sister in the air force during the Second World War. While she did not go overseas, she later discovered dozens of women who had been principal actors in the drama of war. From 1977 until the early 1990s, she systematically interviewed 30 of them in a monumental oral history project. "It's very different view of the war," Dr. YOUNG says. "Nurses were the only women who were close to the front lines. I think Margaret saw them all as heroines."
During the 1980s, a group interested in nursing history, including Dr. YOUNG and Dr. McPHERSON, began to coalesce around Dr. ALLEMANG in meetings hosted at her West Toronto home. In 1993, the group formalized as the Margaret M. Allemang Centre for the History of Nursing. Even without a building or staff, Dr. McPHERSON believes their advocacy helped prevent precious archival materials from being lost during the wave of cutbacks that swept health care in the mid-1990s. She also credits Dr. ALLEMANG for bringing nursing history into its own in Canada through her tireless support of academics like herself.
"She was a real encourager, a co-ordinator," Dr. McPHERSON says. "Nursing history is so much part of general social history, so much on the map."
Never married, Dr. ALLEMANG was particularly close to Mr. ALLEMANG, her twin brother's son. In her retirement, the two regularly went to the opera and restaurants together, and would indulge in substantive conversations about the arts, history, food and philosophy. Somehow, Mr. ALLEMANG marvels, she managed to be a critical thinker without ever being critical. "I never knew if she had a bad thought about anybody," he says. "I'm sure she did, but you had to work pretty hard to get a sense that she didn't approve of something."
Even when a boarder from Hong Kong took her prized red Mustang on a wild joyride that ended in it being totalled, Mr. ALLEMANG says his aunt barely budged. Nor did it discourage Dr. ALLEMANG from her practice of opening her home to strangers. The last in a long series of tenants was Gizaw CHUTA, a refugee from Ethiopia and a minister in training. Today, Reverend CHUTA says he initially worried that the elderly white Canadian would see his presence as an imposition. "What she told me, she has experience with all people, with all cultures, so she liked to talk with all people. For her, really, all the world's people are the same."
When Mr. CHUTA learned last November that his wife and children had finally received visas to come to Canada, Dr. ALLEMANG insisted on paying their airfares.
Margaret ALLEMANG was born in Toronto on July 19, 1914. She died in Toronto on April 14, 2005. She was 91.
