Former Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission chairperson Harry BOYLE had ties to region
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Harry BOYLE, a former broadcaster and chairperson of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, has died at age 89. BOYLE, who made his career in broadcasting, was also known as an author, humourist and broadcast regulator.
He was born in 1915 in St. Augustine and after graduating from school, worked for the Goderich Signal Star and several western Ontario weekly newspapers.
According to BOYLE's biographies on the Canadian Communications Foundation and Chicago's Museum of Broadcast Communications websites, he started his broadcasting career in the 1930s, accepting a job with a radio station in Wingham, developing shows that focused on local news.
He stayed at the station for five years before accepting a position as district editor of the Stratford Beacon Herald. He soon met Don FAIRBURN, who worked for the newly formed Canadian Broadcasting Corp., and asked BOYLE to interview for a job at the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
BOYLE started working at the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. in 1942 as a farm commentator and then director, later joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. television service in the 1960s, serving as program director and executive producer.
During the late 1940s, BOYLE moved into production and was appointed director of the Trans-Canada Network. When the Dominion Network was established, BOYLE created the feature show Assignment, which reflected "homey" local stories from across Canada.
Among BOYLE's accomplishments was Canadian Broadcasting Corp. Wednesday Night -- launched in 1947 as three non-commercial hours that offered opera, musicals, classical and original plays and documentaries.
BOYLE established a reputation as a creative programmer who defended the independence of producers against management restrictions. He also launched the careers of many well-known Canadian broadcasters, including Max FERGUSON and the comedy team Wayne and Shuster.

Harry J. BOYLE, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Broadcaster: Farmer's son from southwestern Ontario shook the soil off his feet to become a radio and television pioneer who shaped Canada's air waves, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, With files from Canadian Press, Monday, January 24, 2005 - Page S6
Broadcaster, playwright, novelist, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation executive and a former Chair of the Canadian and Radio Television Commission, Harry J. BOYLE was a huge influence on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and television as a programmer, talent spotter (think Wayne and Shuster), broadcast boss and policy maker.
"He helped the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation become the link that held the country together," said novelist and radio producer Howard ENGEL. "The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, in my time [the 1950s-1970s] was like the railway a century earlier. It let people in Corner Brook know what was going on in Edmonton. He was very important that way in his writing and in his broadcasting."
Harry BOYLE was born on a farm in 1915 in southwestern Ontario. After graduating from Wingham High School and St. Jerome's College (now part of the University of Waterloo) he worked as a journalist for the Goderich Signal Star and a stringer for the London Free Press and the Globe and Mail.
He got his first job as a broadcaster in 1936 at Radio Station CKNX in Wingham, Ontario, the town later made famous as the birthplace and literary home of short-story writer Alice MUNRO. He left the radio station in 1941 and worked for a year at the Stratford Beacon-Herald before joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a farm commentator in 1942. He quickly rose to become a network supervisor of features and director of the National Farm Radio Forum.
"He literally had an understanding of broadcasting and life from the grass roots up because he was a farmer," said playwright and Toronto cultural maven Mavor MOORE who was a colleague at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio as far back as the 1940s. There were two Canadian programs that were way ahead of every other in the world in terms of the size of their collective audience audiences that would gather in halls and meeting places across the country to listen to radio, according to Mr. MOORE. One of them was the Citizen's Forum and the other was the Farm Forum under Mr. BOYLE's supervision.
"He was a real thinking farmer," said Mr. MOORE, "and a good deal deeper than people expected of the head of the farm dept." Those programs gave him an insight into the importance of broadcasting across the country, an understanding that he used "to turn radio into a medium where difficult and large topics could be tackled," said Mr. MOORE. With his "enquiring mind and his lively concern about big issues in society and communications" he was an "anomaly among the people starting radio and television, who were on the whole pretty low brow," according to Mr. MOORE.
He was an anomaly in other ways, too. A devout Irish Catholic who enjoyed a drink or three, Mr. BOYLE hated hypocrisy, top-down bureaucracies and micro-managing. The legendary broadcaster Max FERGUSON was a staff announcer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in the late 1940s. By that time Mr. BOYLE was head of the Trans-Can network.
"I was the lowest paid announcer on staff," Mr. FERGUSON remembered yesterday, "Every year we got an annual increment, although we called it the annual excrement because it was about ten dollars a year." That year -- it was 1949 -- Mr. FERGUSON was told by a functionary that he wasn't going to get a raise at all, even though he was doing Rawhide, his satirical commentary in addition to his regular duties.
In the ensuing blow-up, Mr. FERGUSON either quit or was fired for insubordination, depending on who is telling the story. While Mr. FERGUSON was still seething, along came Mr. BOYLE with the suggestion that he should think about selling Rawhide to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on a freelance basis. "He was like the army sergeant interceding for the privates with the officers, except he did it between the announcers and the producers," said Mr. FERGUSON.
"He sold that Rawhide show to them [the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation]for about five times my salary and I was able to move back to Halifax, which I certainly preferred to Toronto. Things worked out beautifully and I owe it all to Harry BOYLE. He was the only one who would listen to you and go to bat for you with his bosses."
When the Dominion Network was established at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Mr. BOYLE created the feature show Assignment which reflected "homey" local stories from across Canada and his real triumph, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Wednesday Night, a mix of opera, musicals, classical and original plays and even documentaries that ran for 90 minutes or three hours depending on the strength of the program. Until then, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation schedule was divided into rigidly fixed and timed segments. What Mr. BOYLE did, to the delight of both listeners and freelance producers, was to make the process more flexible so that the quality of the program determined the schedule rather than the other way around. This was the era that is known as the "golden age" of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with actors and producers of the ilk of John Drainie and Lister Sinclair fusing listeners to their radios.
"He was the making of me," said retired radio producer Howard ENGEL, only one of many people Mr. BOYLE took a chance on as broadcasters. "I was a high-school teacher and not much enjoying it in the mid-1950s," he said, confessing that after a single pedagogical year in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, he had given it up and moved to Toronto and was looking for work. The two met over a drink at a crowded table in the Evereen, a pub across from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on Jarvis Street, just north of the Celebrity Club, a local watering hole that Mr. BOYLE was known to frequent.
He sent Mr. Engel off with a tape recorder and commissioned him to do a short documentary about the celebration of Chinese New Year in Toronto's Chinatown. "That meant I had to learn how to use a tape recorder, to edit tape and to do a mix," Mr. ENGEL said, confessing that he produced a 45 minute script that he had to boil down to about five minutes. He soon became a tape editor on Assignment with host Bill McNEIL.
Mr. BOYLE made the tape recorder an indispensable tool of broadcasting, said Mr. ENGEL, as essential as a typewriter was for print journalists at the time. In doing so, he ruffled the technicians union. He was in favour of unions, said Mr. ENGEL, but he thought this was new territory and in the same way that you wouldn't impose somebody sitting on the lap of a print journalist writing on a typewriter, he believed broadcast journalists should be allowed to go out and record sounds and voices.
Although Mr. BOYLE had a bad enough drinking problem that he would disappear from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for as much as a week at a time, Mr. ENGEL said he could always re-invent and resurrect both himself and his career with brilliant new programming ideas. "He was a multiple phoenix," said Mr. ENGEL, who was able to save himself by his own invention.
He could arouse envy as well as admiration in other broadcasters. Margaret LYONS, former vice-president English radio services for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was a senior producer in public affairs and "a competitor for air time" in the 1960s. She remembers Mr. BOYLE as "very independent minded" with no patience for political or any other kind of "correctness." Saying that Mr. BOYLE was a great generalist who always wanted to poke fun at the establishment and against all forms of intellectual pretension, she said he was an iconoclast who gave legitimacy to an irreverence about public life and broadcasting bureaucracy. "His commonsensical approach was a good thing," she concluded.
He was always at loggerheads with the brass above him, said Mr. ENGLE and when he went to Ottawa he found himself in the same situation with his political bosses. In 1968, Mr. BOYLE was appointed vice chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission, the independent public authority that regulates and supervises broadcasting and telecommunications in Canada. He succeeded Pierre JUNEAU as chairman when Mr. JUNEAU resigned in 1975 and was later confirmed to the position in 1976.
A committed nationalist, Mr. BOYLE had a huge influence on the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission and the shaping of the 1968 broadcasting act, according to Joan Irwin a journalist who wrote about the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission for a number of print outlets at the time. 'Harry was better at cutting through crap than anybody I have ever known. He was absolutely real and he could see through anybody -- a terrific guy."
Mr. BOYLE left the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission after a year, having gained a reputation, along with Mr. JUNEAU, of safeguarding domestic ownership of Canada's broadcasting industry and creating a set of Canadian content quotas for television, among other initiatives.
In 1977, Mr. BOYLE presided over a committee of inquiry which examined national broadcasting shortly after the victory of the separatist Parti Quebecois victory in Quebec's 1976 election. The report was critical of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for failing to promote communications among the country's regional and linguistic communities, and expressed concern about the centralization of the system, the lack of programming from regions outside central Canada and the gap between French and English audiences.
Mr. BOYLE was also a newspaper columnist, an essayist, novelist and playwright. His novels, included, A Summer Burning (1964), With a Pinch of Sin (1966), Memories of a Catholic Boyhood (1973) and The Luck of the Irish (1975). His radio and stage plays including Strike, The Macdonalds of Oak Valley and The Inheritance. He won the Stephen Leacock award for humour and the John Drainie award.
Harry J. BOYLE was born on October 7, 1915 in St. Augustine, Ontario He died in Toronto on January 22, 2005. He was 89. He is survived by a son and a daughter.

Tribute: Harry J. BOYLE
'A wonderful, creative individual who... produced some of the best programs the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation ever did'
By Pierre JUNEAU, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, January 27, 2005 - Page S7
Montreal -- Harry J. BOYLE will be remembered as a creative broadcaster and executive. But I think many people who crossed his path will just think of Harry as a sensitive, genuine person with a great sense of humour, a sharp mind, a flair to perceive talent in people or to detect bluff. While I was vice-chairman of the Board of Broadcast Governors, its chairman, Andrew STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, supported the idea of assembling a small and informal group that would try to come up with new ideas to stimulate and evaluate "Canadian content" in radio and television. While I was searching for names, I happened to meet a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation researcher, Rodrigue CHIASSON, who worked in Toronto. He mentioned Harry's name to me. Coming from Montreal, I had never heard of him.
"I can't think of a better person for what you have in mind," said Rod. "He's just a wonderful, creative individual who has produced some of the best programs the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation ever did."
That is how Harry and I came to meet. The group was formed and, besides Harry and Rod, included Patrick WATSON and two or three others.
Later, in 1968, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission was created and Harry was appointed vice-chairman. He remained in that post until I left in 1975, when he then became chairman. We worked closely together for seven challenging, but exciting, years. The Board of Broadcast Governors had been in existence from 1958 to 1968, but a completely new act had been passed by Parliament and new policies were expected: An important increase of Canadian programs on radio and television, more Canadian music on radio, the Canadianization of all radio, television and cable companies. Almost all cable companies were American or British. It took about two years to arrange for the transfers to Canadian owners, and involved investments of about $150-million. We had support from some people in the industry -- mainly those who were acquiring some of those previously foreign properties. But the proposed increase in Canadian programming met with some pretty dramatic opposition.
Besides Harry, the commission included some journalists such as Pat Pearce from Montreal, literary critic and professor Northrop FRY, an engineer, top business people from every province, and a physician from a Newfoundland outport. Five of the 15 commissioners were full-time members. Despite lively controversies, decisions were unanimous.
Harry and I had an entirely informal relationship. We had the commission meetings, of course, but if something important suddenly came up, there were no appointments arranged through secretaries. There would be a sharp knock on my door, from Harry's big brass ring. He would come in and sit down. I enjoyed the interruption and dropped whatever I was doing. Very often, the discussion would reorient our thinking and open a new perspective in our deliberations.
Harry was a wonderful storyteller, and his collection of stories was inexhaustible. I have met few people with such an extraordinary memory. He remembered people, conversations, scenery, happenings, even odours in the general store that, if I remember well, his family owned in Wingham, Ontario Harry could hardly speak a word of French, but I was constantly amazed by the number of Friends he had in Quebec and how familiar he was with Quebec culture. Although he was not bilingual, he was bicultural.
Harry's career had been mostly in public broadcasting, while the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission dealt more often with private broadcasters throughout the country. But he seemed to have as many Friends in private radio and television as he had at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. There were few public broadcasters and hundreds of private broadcasters and cable companies. He had been so long and so creative in that field, and they respected his competence and his sense of humour. He seemed to enjoy himself despite the endless hours we had to spend in public hearings listening to applications for an increase in cable rates in northern Newfoundland or the Beauce region of Quebec or whether a Texas cable company owner in Trois-Rivières ought to be allowed to retain his company despite recent Canadian legislation.
I liked having Harry beside me during these hearings. We could share comments, and I enjoyed his very personal way of questioning applicants. I hope I may be permitted, now, to mention something I never brought up with him during all those years of companionship. Hearings would often go from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., sometimes for four or five days. Harry would smoke a pipe filled with very strong tobacco almost continuously. But our Friendship endured. Eventually, he moved back to Toronto. We met now and then but not often enough.
Pierre JUNEAU is a former broadcasting and National Film Board executive who served as chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission from 1968 to 1975.

Toronto filmmaker Michael LENNICK writes about author and broadcaster Harry J. BOYLE, whose obituary appeared on January 24.
Many have praised Harry J. BOYLE for his vision and warmth. I, on the other hand, remember him primarily as that nice man I used to wake up whenever a night of imbibing left him sleeping it off on my parent's couch.
Harry was a lifelong friend of my parents, the actors Sylvia and Ben LENNICK. Back then, he would often drop by unannounced, usually in the late evening. Dad would spin his favourite records while Harry talked the night away. Harry enjoyed those visits so much he eventually put my family's home life on the radio in a comedy series entitled -- get ready -- At Home With The Lennicks, which ran from 1948 to 1955. Mom wrote the scripts which she, Dad and my brother David performed live twice each week. I was born on that show (the Canadian version of I Love Lucy's Little Ricky, I suppose), as was my younger sister, Julie. Harry's visits continued throughout that era. As my parents would never let him drive home in the state he inevitably achieved, I was often the first to encounter him, en route to my morning appointment with Captain Kangaroo. Harry was always warm and friendly, despite whatever hangover he must have been nursing.
He eventually got into the habit of bringing a toy with him to give me on those early mornings after-the-night-before.
Harry BOYLE was one of the mad geniuses who invented our industry. He was also the first broadcasting executive I ever met, and as such remains my all-time favourite.

Robert BIES of Pittsburgh, Pa., writes about Harry J. BOYLE, whose obituary appeared on January 24.
My memories of Harry J. BOYLE were in his role as Mayor of Mariposa while participating in Stephen Leacock award dinners in Orillia, Ontario It was on these occasions (as a boy and then a young man) that I experienced his wonderful humour, acumen and insight into the human condition. His ability to illuminate that condition with his humour and perspective was particularly striking to me - very much in the vein of Mr. Leacock's writing. His banter with the award winner or other luminaries (Pierre BERTON, among others) and his speeches were truly a pleasure to witness. And this past week, I have gained a new appreciation for his immense contribution to Canadian culture.

By John David HAMILTON, Wednesday, February 9, 2005 - Page S9
John David HAMILTON of Keswick, Ontario, writes about Harry J. BOYLE, whose obituary ran on January 24.
I worked with Harry for many years in radio and television and saw close up his vision and great contribution to the media. One day in 1961, he called me into his office and showed me a short inside-page story in The New York Times that said president John Kennedy was increasing the number of military advisers in Vietnam from 7,000 to 16,000. I said: "So what?" Harry said, "If this isn't stopped, it will usher in one of the worst wars in history." So I asked him what we were expected to do about it? He told me to head up a documentary project to be called The Conscience of Manitoba For a year, a group of us dug into the consciences of politicians, philosophers, theologians, authors and nations, and the programs won many award.
Harry's vision was like that. Among some of his other lesser-known achievements was to "invent" daytime radio programming when he hired Bruno GERUSSI to talk to housewives in the morning. Bruno set the pattern for the late Peter GZOWSKI, and his successor, Shelagh ROGERS.
He also invented a new type of religious programming called Concern with Peter Meggs, a former Anglican minister, as host. The program continues on radio as Tapestry and is a civilized analysis and discussion of many religions and beliefs. Project, his major documentary series for radio, dug into all kinds of unusual areas from taking the 1960s temperatures of America and Canada to concerts of the Red Army Chorus and studies of the changing modern woman.
These programs, along with work done on Assignment, revolutionized the techniques of radio and had a great influence on television when it began using videotape. Earlier, he had also introduced the use of portable reel-to-reel tape recorders.
His freelancers, proudly calling ourselves Boyle's Irregulars, were cordially hated by bureaucracies, without and within the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Grace Lydiatt SHAW writes about Harry J. BOYLE, whose obituary appeared on Jan 24.
Harry BOYLE became my mentor the day I stood in the doorway of his office at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and he asked why I wasn't bringing him program items. Before I knew it, I had been assigned a documentary for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Wednesday Night and set off with my tape recorder feeling as though the sky was the limit. Then came many other assignments. Sunday Night Programs, Assignment and the Project Series. Wherever I went, someone would ask: "How is Harry? He gave me my first chance."
My biggest boost came when he signed me to do a 13-week series on Canadian theatre. He got a good budget from the Kremlin (his term for the top brass) and set me off to research and tape the interviews. Urged by Harry, some of this material became the basis for my book Stratford Under Cover. It was published for the 25th anniversary of the Stratford Festival; the foreword was written by Harry J. BOYLE.

By Keith ROULSTON, Monday, February 14, 2005 - Page S6
Keith ROULSTON of Blyth, Ontario, writes about Harry J. BOYLE, whose obituary appeared on January 24.
As a writer, Harry J. BOYLE always called himself a storyteller and as a boy who grew up a few miles away from St. Augustine where he was born, as I read his books for the first time I saw my own part of the country as important enough to be written about. In a rural area where most people worked with their hands, he raised the possibility that someone could actually write books.
In 1975 when a young Huron County native, James ROY, decided he wanted to come home start a theatre in Blyth, Ontario, that would tell the stories of the people of the region, it was natural that he turned to the stories of Harry J. BOYLE and that decision played a huge part in the founding of the Blyth Festival which has premiered nearly 100 Canadian plays in the 30 years since. With a troupe of young actors he turned stories from Mostly in Clover, Homebrew and Patches and With a Pinch of Sin into the festival's first hit. The rollicking Mostly in Clover that got the festival off to a great start, selling out by the end of the first season and being brought back for the second season before being the festival's first touring show. In 1977, Anne Chislett adapted BOYLE's A Summer Burning into a second hit.
Through the success of the Festival, Mr. BOYLE indirectly played a part in my becoming a playwright there and I was proud to be able to meet and talk to my boyhood hero on several opportunities.
