Phil BALMER, Dew-Line Engineer: 1923-2005
Wizard with electrical circuitry also worked on the ill-fated Avro Arrow
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, June 20, 2005, Page S8
Phil BALMER was a prominent figure in two of the greatest Canadian engineering stories of the 1950s: The Distant Early Warning line and the Avro Arrow.
Mr. BALMER was so well acquainted with electrical equipment that he owned a ham radio by the time he was barely a teen. As the Second World War loomed, the then 16-year-old was puzzled to learn that government authorities wanted him to dismantle his ham-radio operation at the family home in west Toronto.
"The government people came in and watched him tear down his aerial," recalled his widow, Ruth, who had known him since the age of 4. "They thought there was a chance he would contact the enemy. They didn't want ham-radio operators sending signals out."
Mr. BALMER graduated from Humberside Collegiate Institute in Toronto before obtaining his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and his master's degree, both from the University of Toronto.
"Phil was the brains of our family," said his sister, Ruth Job.
After getting his master's in 1947, Mr. BALMER embarked on a 35-year career with Canadian General Electric. His expertise came in handy when the Distant Early Warning-line era dawned in February, 1954. He worked on the electrical equipment needed for the Distant Early Warning line, which was established during as a first line of defence against attack by nuclear bombers and missiles over the North Pole.
The Distant Early Warning line was established across the tundra of Canada, Alaska and northern Greenland. Working out of Toronto, Mr. BALMER helped design the tons of equipment needed for the Distant Early Warning line stations.
"The Distant Early Warning line work was something he didn't talk about much," Mrs. BALMER said. "It was the Cold War and the United States was worried about the Russians back then."
Later that decade, Mr. BALMER's services again were required this time on the development team for the highly prized, ahead-of-its-time Avro Arrow CF-105, which became a symbol of Canadian excellence.
"Phil worked on the electrical circuits for the Arrow and spent considerable time on the project in Montreal," said Mrs. BALMER, a physics and chemistry major at the U of T. "He made many visits to Montreal to work on it. He was close-mouthed about it because it was a security thing all the time. He worked quietly on it. He was a very private person. He kept a lot of stuff to himself."
Alas, the Arrow was never allowed to fulfill its mission as a supersonic, all-weather interceptor. The Arrow project was shot down on Black Friday, February 20, 1959, an infamous day in Canadian history.
"Phil was in Montreal working on the Arrow when it was cancelled in Parliament," Mrs. BALMER said. "As soon as he found out, he came home. He was so disappointed when it collapsed.... It would have been a boon to our manufacturing if the project had kept going. It would have put us in the forefront.... This was long before the Americans went into space. As it turns out, we lost a lot of our aeronautical engineers who went to work in the U.S. on other programs after the Arrow was scrapped."
But Phil BALMER wasn't one of those who defected. He remained loyal to Canada and Toronto, working for Canadian General Electric until his retirement. As part of his job description, he worked as a patent agent, designed and operated radio equipment for the Toronto police force and taught Morse code at night.
"He was a perfectionist," Mrs. BALMER said. "He was very slow, but things had to be done right. When he was in quality control at General Electric, they thought he was too slow and was slowing down the assembly line."
Mr. BALMER retired at 63 as a patent agent just when General Electric was shutting down its Toronto patent office and transferring operations to Fairfield, Connecticut. To all intents and purposes, he was a de facto lawyer in the patent department.
"All of what he did as a patent agent was associated with the legal department," said his boss, Ray ECKERSLEY, the director of patents and licensing at General Electric for many years. "There's the preparations of patents, the legislation of patents, licensing agreements, obtaining trademarks, registering trademarks that wouldn't infringe on other companies. There were all kinds of legal questions."
After a routine day on the job, Mr. BALMER would soothe his soul at home by listening to the music of Scott Joplin. He also loved baseball and collecting tartan plaid ties.
"Over the years, he had collected 57 tartan ties and at his funeral, all 57 were given out to family and Friends," Mrs. BALMER said.
Phil BALMER was born March 7, 1923, in Toronto and died there of heart failure, aged 81. He is survived by his wife; sons David, Richard, James and daughter Heather; and his sister.

BALSE, Dr. Mohan
Dr. Mohan BALSE, Ph.D. (Bombay,) D.Litt. (Sorbonne,) Prof. Emeritus - Dept. of French, University of Western Ontario - passed away April 13, 2005, in Mumbai, India. His wife, Ratnaprabha, preceded him in 2001. He is survived by his daughter, Lina (of Battle Creek, Michigan, U.S.A.), sons Ajit (of Mumbai, India), and Ranjit (of Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.). Retiring after 25 years of teaching French in the prestigious Government Colleges in Bombay, he emigrated to London, Ontario, in 1968, and taught at University of Western Ontario until finally retiring in 1979. A Professor and a gentleman to the core, he was at home with people of all ages and all faiths. His helpfulness and kindness were palpable to anyone whom he met. He was struck by total blindness of unknown cause in 1987, which he managed to face with extra-ordinary courage and fortitude. He returned to India in 1996 to be with his son and his family.
May his soul rest in Peace!

BALTESSEN, William " Bill"
In loving memory of our dear Dad, Grandpa and Great-Grandpa, William (Bill) Baltessen, who passed away 1 year ago May 18, How often over this past year
We have stopped and remembered the laughter, fun and wonderful things,
That we shared together
And when we needed someone,
You were always there.
With words of good advice,
Because you always cared
Though your smiles are gone forever
And your hands we cannot touch,
We have so many memories
Of the one we loved so much.
In a quiet country graveyard,
Where the breezes gently blow
Lies our father the one we love so dearly
And lost one year ago.
Time cannot stop a heartache,
Or even stop a tear,
Or take away a memory
Of one we loved so dear.
We may not show our sadness,
Everyday throughout the year,
But in our hearts is where we know,
We're wishing your were here.
Lovingly remembered and sadly missed. Love Angie and Ken, Mary & Doug, Betty, Hank and Annie, Lambert and Nelly, John and Janet, Theresa & Eddy, William and Tracey, and their families.
