Fred KELLY, Artist and Realtor (1921-2005)
He drew the original Mr. Monster, a wartime superhero drafted by comic-book publishers during trade restrictions
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Saturday, September 24, 2005, Page S9
Victoria -- Fred KELLY was an artist from Canada's brief golden age of superhero comics. He created the original Mr. Monster and then vanished until tracked down last year by a diligent fan.
Mr. KELLY drew for Bell Features of Toronto during the Second World War, as government restrictions on American periodicals gave birth to a homegrown comic-book industry. In place of Superman, Batman, Torch, The Shield and countless others, Canadian artists churned out scores of characters. Among Mr. KELLY's creations was Dr. Jim (Doc) Stearne, a medical doctor and crack marksman who hunted monsters. Mr. Monster, as his alter ego was known, appeared in the third issue of "Super Duper Comics." Mr. Monster wore black boots and white gauntlets, a helmet with goggles, and a red body stocking with a white skull on the chest. He was armed with a pistol and boasted no special powers other than his wits.
According to Library and Archives Canada, Bell comics varied in quality but were identifiably Canadian. Mr. KELLY joined a stable of such Canadian artists as Adrian Pringle, who produced the heroes Nelvana of The Northern Lights and the Penguin, and illustrator Edmund Legault, who drew Dixon of the Mounted. Also part of the Bell lineup was Phantom Rider by Jerry Lazare and the character Rex Baxter, drawn by Edmond Good. Best known, however, was Johnny Canuck. Drawn by Leo BACHLE, who died in 2003 and also went by the name of Rex BARKER, " Johnny Canuck -- Canada's answer to Nazi oppression" had no powers other than an inexhaustible source of courage and a killer right-hook.
Bell Features was not alone in stepping into the regulatory gap. Such other publishers as Vancouver's Maple Leaf Publishing and Anglo-American Publishing of Toronto also offered their own fighters of crime and fascism, including such homegrown heroes and heroines as Freelance, Black Wing and Commander Steel, to name a few.
Interestingly, Mr. KELLY also chose to work for a less dashing line of characters offered by Educational Projects of Montreal. Published as Canadian Heroes, the series featured profiles of prime ministers and other worthies, and was surely more popular among parents and teachers than the children on whom they were foisted. Among the real-life figures given the comic treatment was First World War air ace Raymond COLLISHAW, hockey star Howie MORENZ, and Sir John A. MacDONALD. Canadian Heroes did offer one clean-cut fictional hero, a stalwart named Canada Jack who combined healthy outdoor activities with crime-busting and spy-fighting.
Among the other characters he created for Bell were Betty Burd, a shapely roving reporter who found every opportunity to wear a revealing swimsuit; Cinder Smith, the manager of a train station in the Rockies; Steve Storm, a monocle-wearing British commissioner in colonial Africa; and race car driver Clip Curtis, The King of the Dirt Track.
After the war, Mr. KELLY and Mr. Monster returned to obscurity, as Canadian publications became overwhelmed by American imports, but not before trying his luck in the United States. In 1946, he worked with Damon Runyan and produced a comic strip that featured characters from the writer's popular stories about the gamblers, petty thieves, actors and gangsters of New York's Prohibition period. To be titled The Other Half, it was on the cusp of acceptance by a major publisher when Mr. Runyon died and the project collapsed.
After that, Mr. KELLY returned home and attended the University of Toronto to study medical illustration. He graduated in 1949, found steady work as an illustrator and then took up a successful career selling real estate in the Toronto area, most notably in the Willowdale area where he was a partner in Kelly and Craig Realtors.
The Mr. Monster character was revived in 1984 by Michael T. Gilbert, an American illustrator who had purchased a coverless copy of the original in 1971. The rejuvenated hero was presented as the son of Doc Stearne.
Just last year, Toronto comics historian Robert PINCOMBE tracked down Mr. KELLY, who had retired and divided his time between Mexico and Owen Sound, Ontario Mr. KELLY, who taught art classes in his retirement, attended the Toronto Comicon 2004 convention in June, where he appeared on a panel with contemporaries Ed Furness and Jerry Lazare. He also got to meet Mr. Gilbert.
"He was gratified, but thought the whole thing was all a bit silly," said Mr. PINCOMBE. "He felt it was great to be remembered and was pleased to learn that Mr. Monster had come back but didn't want a piece of it. He was a very pragmatic man."
Frederick George KELLY was born in Toronto on September 8, 1921. He died in Owen Sound, Ontario, on September 14 as the result of a stroke suffered in 2003. He was 84. He leaves his wife, Rita, a son; two daughters, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Dorothy Forrest MacKEIGAN
By Wendy MacKEIGAN and Jonathan BARKER, Tuesday, November 1, 2005, Page A22
Teacher, world traveller, wry humorist, mother, grandmother. Born May 28, 1928, in Amherst, Nova Scotia Died April 9 in Toronto of pancreatic cancer, aged 76.
Dorothy discovered the magical world of books at a young age. Her father died when she was 3 and she gravitated to a life of the mind and was often scolded for retreating to her favourite hideaway in a tree with a cherished book.
Her reading paid off when Dorothy won a scholarship, which she applied for secretly, at age 15 to Dalhousie University. While studying English literature, the campus "Sweater Girl" was swept off her feet by the football captain, mining engineer and larger-than-life Cape Breton character, "Dangerous Don" MacKEIGAN. They married and moved to Sudbury, Ontario, where Don joined Inco.
After raising her four much-beloved children, Linda, Wendy, Dallas and Forrest, Dorothy resumed a career of teaching, completed her Masters degree and developed a reputation over 29 years as one of those rare, great, dynamic and inspirational teachers. Always ready to stray from the rulebook, her trademark was to communicate her passionate and unconventional views about the essence of a book and she was genuinely interested in what every student felt about the book.
The refuge and glue in her life was the family cottage at Trout Lake, Ontario There were no rules, and Dorothy and Don both instilled a sense of total freedom and independence in the children. Wendy remembers lying on the dock at a young age and playing a typical Dorothy game: "Name me one great artist who wasn't messed up."
Every summer, Dorothy slowly pulled up the reeds from the bay, dressed in one of her famous bathing suits, which might or might not cover the essential body parts. Don thought endless reed-pulling a waste of time, not realizing Dorothy felt it was great exercise. He appeared one day with some of his mining buddies, planted sticks of dynamite and blew up not just reeds but a part of the bay. Dorothy just shook her head and calmly went from "reeding" to reading, and then took up staining the cottage as her annual exercise. She was always reading several books at once, and her grandchildren calculated that she read more than 15,000 books.
Don never stopped loving Dorothy, but, unfortunately, spirits took hold of his spirit and Dorothy saw no option but divorce. This split ultimately led her into her world-traveller phase.
She spent the 1990s teaching in Istanbul, Turkey, and Kuala Lumpur. She travelled at every opportunity: Africa, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea and much of the Silk Road -- often alone.
She eventually returned to live in Toronto to be near her children and her growing gaggle of gifted grandchildren, surrounded by strange relics from her travels. She instilled in her children and extended family a love of academic excellence, travel, curiosity, stimulating conversation and books, an appreciation for irony and an aversion to ironing.
Dorothy taught English literature to Chinese students and continued to travel, but every summer she returned to Trout Lake. Our own family always wanted her to be there with us for our annual summer vacation; no one could relax like her, and it was contagious. She read, swam, played bridge and Scrabble, talked openly, insightfully and humorously to her grandchildren about life and books, threw herself with total passion into singing Hank Williams's Cold Cold Heart or Willie Nelson's Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, had a few glasses of wine, shared a midnight sauna and swim in the cool lake and gazed up at the stars.
Wendy and Jonathan are Dorothy's daughter and son-in-law.

GREENBERG, Leonard Herman B.Sc., M.Sc., PhD, and professor emeritus
The physics community lost a respected long time member and teacher on November 10, 2005. Len GREENBERG taught in the physics department at the University of Regina for 38 years, including 5 years as department head, retiring in 1990. Co-workers recall him as an extremely good physicist, instrumental in bringing the small department recognition as one of the best in Canada in the field of sub-atomic physics. Len's forte was writing, however, and his two books, "Discovery in Physics for Scientists and Engineers" and "Physics for Biology and Pre-med Students" have been called literature as well as science, and were translated into several languages. In his early career, Len was deeply involved in the development of the cobalt bomb for radiation in cancer therapy at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, and he worked for many years at the Allan Blair Memorial Clinic in Regina. Although not an astronomer, Len developed and taught the first astronomy classes at the University of Regina.
Len was born on October 5, 1925 in Calgary, Alberta, one of four children of Anna and Oscar, who had emigrated from Sweden. Len obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the University of Alberta and PhD from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon in the mid-1950s. He moved to Regina in 1952, and lived there until 1972, when he moved to the village of Silton. Summers were spent on Kenderdine Island in Lac La Ronge, where Len found a retreat and idyllic environment for his writing.
Len was predeceased by his parents, his sister Evelyn and his brother George. Len will be sadly missed by Ann, his wife of 32 years. Len will also be missed by his sister Bernice CRAIG (Cameron) of Cranbrook, British Columbia and his first wife Joyce HENDERSON of Red Deer, Alberta. Len was an inspiration to his children Lynnea WILLIAMS (Bruce) of Regina, Pauline WATSON (Bob) of Oakville, Ontario, Sherrill BARKER (John) of Red Deer, Alberta, David GRONBERG of Regina, Ian GREENBERG (Sue) of Vancouver, Dan McKAY of Edmonton, Stephen McKERRACHER (Donna) of Drake, Saskatchewan. Len also leaves thirteen grandchildren: Notanee and Roshi (Regina), Kevin and Andrea (Oakville), Natasha and Nathan (Red Deer), Sarah (Scarborough), Chelsea, Eliza and Matthew (Victoria), Ayla, Sterling and Milan, and three great grandchildren. Len is already deeply missed by his dogs Suzy and Gus.
The funeral will be held at Speers Funeral Chapel, Regina, at 1: 30 on Tuesday November 15. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a bursary to be set up in his name, directed to the University of Regina, External Relations, 210 North Residence, S4S 0A2, Toll free 1-866-667-7500 in Canada or the United States.
