Ex-supremacist leader killed
Special to The Free Press
Toronto -- The dean of Canadian white supremacists was murdered yesterday, shot dead in the hall outside his east-end apartment. Wolfgang DROEGE, one-time head of the racist Heritage Front, a Ku Klux Klan recruiter, convicted drug smuggler and member of a band of mercenaries who tried to invade the island of Dominica, was 55.
Toronto police Supt. Bob CLARKE said the victim was shot about 2: 52 p.m. and a suspect briefly barricaded himself in the dead man's apartment on North Drive, near Victoria Park Avenue and Gerrard Street.
The suspect, in his 30s, made at least two 911 calls asking to speak to his brother. CLARKE said the suspect and his brother did speak and the man surrendered without incident.
Reports that the suspect took a hostage proved to be unfounded, CLARKE said, adding he doesn't know what the relationship between the victim and the suspect is.

We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find
They say that time heals all sorrow
And helps you to forget
But time has so far only proven
How much we miss you yet
To know we never said goodbye
Will always bring regret
But the hearts that love you deeply
Are the hearts that wont forget
Love as always, Mom, Dad and son Adam.

In loving memory of a wonderful husband and father, David R.A. CLARKE who passed away June 20, 2003
A million times we've needed you
A million times we've cried
If love could have saved you
You never would have died.
If we could have one lifetime wish
One dream that would come true
We would pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and You.
Sadly missed and forever loved by Linda, Jennifer, Scott and Kathleen.

Single mother worked, helped out during war
By Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporter
With the Second World War raging overseas and a child to feed, Zelda Jean BRAZEAU didn't have time to think about acceptable social norms.
She had a general store to run -- one the entire community depended on for food, appliances and clothing.
"She was so far ahead of her time -- she was the working mom when there was no such thing," said her son, Michael BRAZEAU.
Zelda Jean BRAZEAU, 96, of Melbourne, died September 8 at the Allendale Long-Term Care Facility in Milton.
But her work ethic and passion for life will stay with her four children, 10 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, Michael said.
Born in 1909 in Ekfrid Township, BRAZEAU and her eight siblings would walk to the Appin school in woolen stockings. She attended high school in Melbourne and married Sparling CLARKE in 1932. The general store opened the same year.
When CLARKE died in 1940, BRAZEAU, with a seven-year-old in tow, continued to run the store the people of Melbourne relied on during the hard war years.
"She helped out a lot of people during the war," Michael said. "She would fudge the ration books and then change them so they were like the government wanted them to be."
The store was a Saturday-night gathering place for the tiny community in Middlesex County southwest of London.
"She worked long hours -- at least 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.," Michael said. "Then it was closed on Sunday, but people could call if they needed.
"She definitely carried the ball in those days."
His mother married her second husband, Joe BRAZEAU, in 1944. The couple had three children.
The store was a hub of activity for the town until Zelda Jean BRAZEAU retired in 1974 -- 42 years after first starting work there.
But the responsibilities of motherhood and the family business didn't keep BRAZEAU from recreational activities such as sports and card playing.
A trophy in the Appin museum commemorates her softball team's victories.
"She played a mean game of badminton," Michael said.
BRAZEAU travelled to Detroit for Tigers games and never forgave the Toronto Maple Leafs for trading Darryl Sittler.
"Mom also had to have surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome because of all the card playing she did," Michael said.
"She said there was no enjoyment in bridge if there was no competition that's why she didn't really like playing at the retirement home."
BRAZEAU's family remembers her dry sense of humour and her love for all people -- particularly the First Nations people around Melbourne.
"She was a great lady," Michael said.
BRAZEAU lived in Chelsea Park in London before moving to Allendale. She died of congestive heart and kidney failure.
A celebration of her life was held yesterday at the Melbourne United Church.

Beloved teacher mourned
By Robin MacLENNAN, Tuesday, September 20, 2005
Mandy RAY spent the last two weeks getting to know the children in her Grade 6 class, thrilled to be starting a new school year.
Now the students at Alcona Glen Elementary School are learning how to deal with the sudden death of the popular teacher.
RAY, 27, was killed on the weekend when the car she was driving ran off Highway 26 near Minesing, hitting a culvert and rolling several times.
Huronia-West Ontario Provincial Police officers spotted the Volkswagen Jetta in a farm field early Sunday morning.
Mandy was pronounced dead at the scene.
“She was a lovely, lovely lady,” said Alcona Glen principal Jackie KAVANAGH.
“Everyone here is really sad today and we're trying to help the kids.&rdquo
Counsellors from the Simcoe County District School Board Crisis Response Team spent the day at the school, talking to staff and students, and encouraging them to share their grief.
“This is a young, beloved teacher on staff and it was quite a shock to hear the news,” said board communications officer Debbie CLARKE.
“The crisis counsellors are at the school to help them work through the shock and to get them to talk about their feelings.
“The school community is really like a family and a member of the Alcona Glen family has been lost.&rdquo
Mandy started her teaching career at the Alcona school five years ago as a new graduate who excelled at Nipissing University in North Bay.
“She knew she wanted to be a teacher since she was in Grade 4,&rdquo said Mandy's mom Dagmar.
“That's why she worked so hard and did so well at school. She knew what she wanted to do when she was very young.&rdquo
Graduating with marks over 90 per cent at Barrie North Collegiate, Mandy breezed through university and then returned home to Barrie where she lived in an apartment at her parents' Newton Street home.
Neighbours were devastated by news of her death.
“Everybody's shattered,” said next-door neighbour Judy HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON. “She was such a good person. We all watched her grow from an adorable child into a responsible teen and then into a lovely young woman.
“She had a beautiful smile and eyes that really lived. They sparkled.&rdquo
Police don't know why Mandy's car went off the road, but they said her wheels touched the south shoulder of the highway and then the car crossed both lanes and drove into the north ditch.
“They told us that she went on the shoulder and then over-corrected to get back on the road,” said her dad Gerry RAY. “It was just the wrong place to do that, because there was such a deep ditch and the car flipped over.&rdquo
The flags at Alcona Glen flew at half-mast Monday in the young teacher's honour.
Inside, the atmosphere was sombre as counsellors met with Mandy's distraught students.
“The counsellors helped us feel a bit better,” classmates said as they left the school. Students spent the afternoon working together with crisis counsellors to assemble photos and thoughts into a memory book that will be given to Mandy's family.
“She was really nice,” one girl said, wiping her tears. “She always listened to whatever we had to say and she was lots of fun.&rdquo
An avid sports fan and participant, Mandy coached the junior girls basketball team at Alcona Glen. She grew up playing baseball in the Barrie Minor Baseball Association along with her brother Chris and their dad who volunteered many hours to the league.
“She liked to follow her brother,” Gerry said, smiling at his wife as they sat quietly outside the family home Monday evening. “That's what she really liked to do, follow around her brother.&rdquo
Friends describe Mandy as a very focused, determined person who eagerly shared her love of learning with youngsters at her school.
“I could often look over on a Saturday night and see her on her computer working on school things,” HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON said.
“She loved her job.&rdquo
And when the neighbour looked outside at about 3 a.m. Sunday, she remembers thinking it was strange that Mandy's car wasn't in the driveway.
“Then I saw the police cruiser pull up just after 8 o'clock and I thought ‘Oh, no. What's happened?
“My husband went outside and when he came back I asked him if everything was Okay. He just bit his lip and his eyes welled up. He couldn't speak for a few minutes, and he just shook his head.&rdquo
Mandy is survived by her parents Dagmar and Gerry RAY of Barrie, brother Christian RAY of Toronto, and grandparents Edith and the late William RAY and Helga MESKENAS of Barrie.
Visitation will be held at the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and a service is scheduled in the chapel Thursday at 11 a.m.

CLARKE, James " Jim" Alfred, Major (retired)
Passed away peacefully at his home in Vancouver surrounded by his loving family on January 11, 2005 after a long battle with Waldenstrom's lymphoma. Jim was born on March 1, 1931 in Toronto, Ontario, the first child of Reginald and Eleanor CLARKE. Predeceased by his son Gregory in 1968. He is survived by his wife, June, of 49 years, daughters Sharon (Gary) and Barbara, sons Douglas (Alice) and Graham (Brenda) and five grandchildren Haley, Britt, Todd, Taylor and Sierra. He is also survived by his brother William CLARKE (Janis.)
Jim grew up in Toronto attending Forest Hill School and Ridley College before moving with his parents and brother to Vancouver in 1948, where he attended St. George's School for grade 12. He proceeded to University of British Columbia where he graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce in 1954 and met his wife-to-be June TAILOR/TAYLOR. Jim and June were married August 6, 1955 in Vancouver. Jim's job with Burroughs Adding Machine Company took him and his new bride to Kelowna. They returned to Vancouver in 1958 when he went into business with his brother, Bill. The two brothers built two apartment buildings in the early 1960's and along with other various companies started Vancouver Management Ltd. in 1962. Jim received his C.P.M. designation in 1975 and was involved with the Irem executive for many years. He was also a founding member and president of P.A.M.A. Jim retired from active property management work in 1999.
Jim served in the British Columbia Regiment primarily as a member of the Pay Corps and was actively involved with the Military Ball for over three decades. He was a proud member of Saint Mary's Kerrisdale Anglican Church and a dedicated supporter of the Diocese of New Westminster, Bishop's Friends and the Vancouver School of Theology. He was particularly proud to have been a driving force behind the construction of Saint Mary's Mews. He was an active member of his community and involved with Psi Upsilon Fraternity, Vancouver Heritage Committee, Hood Point Estates, Crofton House School, A.S.K. and Scouts Canada, to name a few. He was a member of the Arbutus Club, Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club and The Vancouver Club.
Jim enjoyed spending time with his family above all else. He particularly enjoyed his summers at Skaha Lake where he and June built a waterfront cottage in 1960 and where the family still goes to this day. He enjoyed his time away in the autumn and spring at their condominium in Palm Springs since 1974. Jim was a passionate vintage car buff and a member of several vintage car clubs. He was the longtime proud owner of a 1930 Chrysler Roadster and 1935 Buick Convertible and enjoyed his many vintage car parades and shows.
The family would like to thank the Home Hospice Program, especially Cheryl, the staff at the V.G.H. Cell Separator Unit, Dr. Denegri, Dr. Neumann, and Classic Caregivers, Sita and Rhonda, and all the support from family and Friends.
A memorial service will be conducted by The Reverend Kevin Dixon & The Reverend John Bethel at 11 o'clock on Monday, January 17, 2005 at Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street, Vancouver, British Columbia. Reception to follow at The Vancouver Club.
In lieu of flowers donations to the Cell Separator Unit, Jim Pattison Level 1 V.G.H., 899 W. 12th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia, V5Z 1M9 or the British Columbia Cancer Foundation, 200-601 West Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia, V5Z 4C2 would be greatly appreciated.

White supremacist DROEGE shot to death in Toronto
By Joe FRIESEN, Thursday, April 14, 2005, Page A1
Toronto -- Wolfgang DROEGE, a white supremacist, Nazi sympathizer and former leader of the Heritage Front, was shot to death in the hallway of a Toronto apartment building yesterday.
Mr. DROEGE, 55, who had a lengthy criminal history including drug charges, was found dead in a second-floor hallway on North Dr. in the Upper Beaches.
Officers from the Toronto Police Emergency Task Force responded to a report of gunshots in the building just before 3 p.m. and discovered that a man, believed to be the assailant, had barricaded himself in an apartment.
Superintendent Bob CLARKE of 41 Division said crisis negotiators took over at that point and spoke to the man over the telephone.
"I understand there was telephone communication between the suspect and the Emergency Task Force officers. After a brief period of time it was resolved and we took the person into custody."
Another man, whom Supt. CLARKE identified as the suspect's brother, arrived at the scene and spoke with the man over the telephone, but it is not known whether that intervention played a role in the eventual surrender.
Mr. DROEGE, born in Germany in 1949, came to prominence as a leading figure on the extreme right in the 1970s. In 1975 he painted the words "white power" along the planned parade route for an African Liberation Day march and was arrested for damaging property.
Soon after, he joined the Ku Klux Klan under then-leader David Duke and tried to start a branch in Canada.
In 1981, in perhaps his most spectacular political foray, he was one of 10 men convicted of plotting to overthrow the government of Dominica.
They planned to use the Caribbean island as a base for drug smuggling, thereby generating funds for white supremacist activities elsewhere in the world. He served two years in U.S. prison for the conspiracy.
Mr. DROEGE returned to Canada in 1989 after serving more time in U.S. prisons for drugs and weapons offences. He quickly set about establishing a network to unite far-right groups in Canada under the auspices of the Heritage Front.
Bernie FARBER of the Canadian Jewish Congress, who campaigned against the Heritage Front in the 1990s, said that for a time under Mr. DROEGE's leadership there was increased interest in the group's brand of extremism.
"They were getting 200 to 300 people at rallies," Mr. FARBER said. "During his leadership the Heritage Front was one of the most deplored racist organizations of its day."
Mr. FARBER said Mr. DROEGE has been out of the spotlight for more than seven years, since the Heritage Front collapsed and white supremacists in Canada fell into political disarray.
"We knew that he maintained some kind of connection to the racist right, but he was never the public face again," Mr. FARBER said.
"This man's criminal history is quite lengthy so I don't think it was any great surprise that he lived on the dark side and was taken by the dark side."
Kimberly GORMAN, who lived in the same building as Mr. DROEGE, said she thought he had been trying to change his ways over the past several years.
He travelled to Europe frequently, she said, but certainly didn't have a typical 9-to-5 job. He slept during the day and did most of his living at night. About six months ago he complained that someone had tried to break down his door, and he showed Ms. GORMAN the damage.
She said his apartment was usually messy, but there was never any sign of the white supremacist politics he espoused publicly over many years.
"He was a very nice man," she said. "I think for the past five years of his life he was trying not to be the guy that he once was."
She also said he was extremely health conscious, always watching what he ate and taking many vitamins.
During yesterday's standoff, which lasted about an hour, dozens of heavily armed Emergency Task Force officers swarmed the apartment building on the quiet suburban street. Several pensioners were caught in the building, but many were taken out by the Emergency Task Force. A local school was placed on lockdown for a short time, police said.
Jason TANZOLA, who has lived three doors down from Mr. DROEGE for two years, was shocked to find his neighbourhood transformed into a heavily guarded armed camp.
He described Mr. DROEGE, whom he knew simply as Wolf, as one of the nicest guys in the world.
"I used to walk by him in the hallway and we'd say hello. If it is what people are saying it is, I'd be quite shocked, because I wouldn't peg him as somebody who'd be a racist."
Toronto Police did not release the name of the man being held in connection with Mr. DROEGE's death.

Robert James GRAHAM
By Dennis CLARKE, Wednesday, May 4, 2005, Page A26
Son, brother, husband, father, musician, public-spirited citizen. Born November 8, 1944, in Chatham, Ontario Died January 12, of complications from lung cancer, aged 60.
Rob GRAHAM was iconic of those who choose small towns and rural areas in which to live and work, serve family and Friends, pursue occupations and avocations, contribute to community and country. He would reject the term "iconic" as silly and pretentious, but ever open to entertain different points of view, to ponder, discuss and debate -- he could likely be brought to accept being representative of such folks.
Rob had a gift for making Friends, and bridging differences (often major differences in his work as a negotiator and facilitator), becoming known and respected throughout the Great Lakes basin as a peacemaker. His ability to create harmony, to orchestrate successful outcomes by helping adversaries find common ground, may have emerged from his musicianship as a pianist, organist, bassist, composer, and band member.
In 1974 Rob and his wife Barbara moved from Ottawa to a cozy Erie Beach lakefront cottage. Rob loved sharing the spectacular view with family and Friends. Summers, he relished the view, and the glory of Barb's hundreds of flowering plants, while riding his mower; winters, from the warmth of the sunroom.
Rob, seeing small town and rural Canada lose the enterprise and energy of its young people to cities (typified by their children, Tim and Allison, moving to London), believed those who stay help keep Canada strong.
This suited his job, started in 1990, as executive director of the Ontario Commercial Fisheries' Association, representing those in business to harvest, process, package and distribute fish, activity concentrated in small communities around the Ontario shores of lakes Erie, Huron, Superior and Ontario.
Rob worked with association members and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, the industry regulator, to create a partnership that transcended a succession of provincial governments. Having begun as its sole employee, he is credited with transforming the Ontario Commercial Fisheries' Association from a kitchen-table, volunteer amalgam to an agency with 13 full-time and seven part-time staff, including business, conservation and science professionals. It operated from an information-technology rich headquarters he established in his hometown of Blenheim, south of Chatham, a facility he would open for community groups to meet after-hours, giving up his personal time to be there.
Rob often said he never caught a fish, but valued commercial fishery workers' extraordinarily arduous jobs, done so he and others could enjoy eating fish.
A confessed media junkie, Rob's work days began with a fix of multi-media news and editorial opinion, enlivened locally by news and views exchanged among suppliers, contractors, farmers, grain dealers, lawyers, municipal workers, politicians and truckers over coffee at the Sunrise Café, across the street from the Ontario Commercial Fisheries' Association.
His twinkling eyes, wide smile, rich baritone, quick wit, incisive intellect and absolute integrity were familiar to all who knew him through his job or his interest in politics and public service.
From a family long committed to the Progressive Conservative Party provincially and nationally, and proud to be at the bluest end of the spectrum, Rob would nonetheless accept being called a "big tent P.C.", believing the party was at its best when the ideological spectrum was fully red to blue.
Rob will be remembered for his love of family, Friends, small town life; his warmth, his integrity.
Dennis CLARKE is Rob's friend.

Glen CLARKE
By Gillian BURTON, Friday, May 20, 2005, Page A20
Family man, musician, computer genius, chef, labour activist. Born August 6, 1931, in Toronto. Died January 13, of multiple illnesses, aged 73.
I did not meet Glen CLARKE during his lifetime. However, I came to know him well in conversation with his wife of 50 years, Marjorie, and daughters Tracey, Christy and Kathleen, shortly after his death. A big man, Glen filled the room in a physical sense, but also with a sense of excitement. Even his voice was profound, and it comforted his small daughters by reverberating up the stairs when they were trying to sleep. He flung himself into new projects until he had learned everything he could about them. Yet if he was speaking with you, Glen concentrated and made you feel so important that you felt that a light shone just on you.
One of six children, his family must have given him wonderful training in generosity of spirit, because he carried it with him all his life. He was fond of repeating his father's advice to "Think good thoughts."
He definitely thought good thoughts when he first met a young woman while they were working on a left-leaning newspaper. Usually you had to pry any expression of emotion out of Glen, yet after a date with Marjorie he said that he "floated home, six feet off the pavement." Perhaps he also burst into song, having sung descants on childhood Sundays. However, he was a basso profundo by this time. Marriage to Marjorie was a given, although I'm not sure it was even formally requested.
Glen proved to be that rarest of men of his generation: a caregiver to his daughters, and a possessive one at that. Marjorie only got to hold her babies when she was feeding them. He was a feminist before the term was invented. His girls had to be independent and self-sufficient, and he helped them to be so.
Glen loved change, and searched for perfection in many areas: music, technology, cooking and always, social justice. He consumed all available information about new gizmos, and acquired and set up many a computer or sound system for his extended family and neighbours. Marjorie was afraid to dust around "the" chair set up for the quadraphonic system, as even the slightest variation would necessitate a complete recalibration. After Glen had gone, they even found an extra phone-line in the house, a welcome addition to the seven phones and seven remotes in the living room.
Even as a young man, he collected classical recordings, and knew the title, composer, soloist and conductor on each. No wonder his three girls became musicians and teachers. Oddly enough, however, only Marjorie could ever dance with Glen, as on the dance floor he moved to inner rhythms instead of the music's beat.
He worked for 36 years at Canada Packers, some as foreman. He was also able to put his social philosophy into practice with his union activities, becoming a shop steward. Injustices of all sorts bothered him. He ground his own coffee beans -- Fair Trade, of course. The door was always open for family, neighbours or kids' Friends: there was a hearty meal, a bed and a compassionate ear available.
Cooking was another passion. The Dalai Lama advised, "Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon," and Glen did just this. He was a talented but explosive cook, his kitchen forays resulting in bits and pieces stuck to the walls and ceiling. He never cooked veggies or fruit, although he occasionally produced tomato and grape juice. And wine, of course.
Recently Glen was known as the comeback king -- he was buffeted by many illnesses, but never expressed any feeling except exuberance when he felt well. Glen CLARKE's light, so bright in life, will remain shining the memory of many.
Gillian is a lay chaplain at First Unitarian Church of Toronto she conducted Glen's memorial service.

Businessman - Sportsman. Charles (Chuck) Irwin RATHGEB passed away peacefully at home in Toronto on June 24, 2005, at the age of 83. Chuck is survived by his loving wife and friend of 58 years, Rosemary CLARKE, originally of Montreal, and nephew Thomas SCEATS, his wife Fabienne and nieces Charlotte and Martha. Loving thanks for continuing care to the house staff Tony, Gloria, Teresa and to Al and Sarah of the Bahamas. Special thanks to Dr. UNG of the Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and to Dr. Robert FRANCIS of Medcan. The Toronto Community Care Access Centre's palliative team headed by Dr. Russell GOLDMAN are to be commended for their loving care and support, as are his health care givers - Trudy, Joyce, Linda, Nellie, Valerio, George and Ken. Chuck RATHGEB was born in Trois Rivieres, Quebec. Moving to Toronto at an early age, he was educated at Upper Canada College and the University of Toronto (Zeta Psi). After leaving Upper Canada, he joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (13755) serving in Western Canada. Transferring to the Royal Canadian Navy he was a decorated officer, serving in the North Atlantic, Norwegian Sea, the Bay of Biscay and the invasion of Europe. Following the war, Chuck joined his father as proprietor of Comstock International Ltd. for over forty years in the field of mechanical and electrical construction with major undertakings across Canada, the United States and around the globe. He was a director of many major corporations both here and abroad and was associated closely with various charitable organizations. Chuck's big avocation was sports. He was at various times a Canadian member of the Commonwealth Cricket Team, a mountain climber (Canadian Rockies and Alps), a big game hunter (earning the Explorers' Club 'gold bracelet for big six' animals), member of the Canadian Marlin and Tuna Teams, 'Offshore' Power Boat Racer (Miami-Nassau, London-Monte Carlo), Cresta Rider and World Cup Bobsledder, as Manager of The Gold Medal Canadian Olympic Bob-Sled Team, Innsbruck, Austria - 1964. For many years, he ran the Comstock Ford Auto Racing Team, competing on major tracks in Canada, the U.S. and Europe and major rallies in Canada, Asia and Europe. He also found time to run a small but successful thoroughbred horse- racing stable. In the air, Chuck was an accomplished gas and hot air balloonist (Trans Canada, Trans Alpine), a glider pilot and a jet pilot, setting a World record Atlantic crossing in a Canadian CL41 jet. But the sport he enjoyed most was golf! In a different vein, he produced a Broadway play 'Staircase', a major film 'Fahrenheit 451' and he also did a brief, if memorable stint, as a rock promoter, staging a 'Doors' concert. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28.

Chuck RATHGEB, Businessman, Sportsman (1921-2005)
Multi-millionaire raced cars, flew hot-air balloons set transatlantic records in a Tutor jet, hunted big game and led four Canadian bobsledders to Olympic gold
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, September 2, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- You could say that Chuck RATHGEB did it all. He (a) raced a balloon across the Alps; (b) drove in the 24 Hours of Le Mans; (c) flew a single-engine jet across the Atlantic; (d) gained an international Explorers Club award for hunting and bagging the "big six" (a lion, a leopard, an elephant, a buffalo, a rhino and a tiger); and (e) coached the Canadian bobsledding team to a gold medal at the 1964 Innsbruck Winter Olympics.
Along the way, he was also a Mountie, a lieutenant-commander in the Royal Canadian Navy and, lastly, a multi-millionaire who led the family firm of Comstock International to global success.
From building mega projects to piloting balloons to his orchestration of Canada's gold-medal bobsledding win, Mr. RATHGEB's role in shaping the country is undeniable.
"He did everything for the Canadian flag," said his wife, Rosemary. "He always had a project to look forward to, to organize and to be in."
It all started in 1939 when Charles RATHGEB, a Quebec lad of German-Swiss heritage, graduated from Toronto's Upper Canada College. His dream was to join the Royal Canadian Navy, except that he wasn't old enough. Instead, he signed up with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, serving in Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. It was while he was training in Regina that he learned the ropes of harsh discipline. One night, with the lights turned off in a cold building while his supervisor was not around, Mr. RATHGEB and his fellow recruits pulled down the window blinds to create warmth. When the supervisor returned to find out what had happened, he smashed all the windows; the trainees spent the rest of the night in the building in the fierce Saskatchewan cold.
When he became eligible for the navy, Mr. RATHGEB quit the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and served in the Battle of the Atlantic, in the Bay of Biscay, on three Murmansk convoys and the invasion of Europe.
In 1946, he left the navy with the rank of lieutenant-commander and joined his father's company, Comstock International Ltd. Around that time, he met Rosemary CLARKE of Quebec City at a resort on the St. Lawrence River and proposed on their first date. Within months, they were married.
As chairman of the board of Comstock, he turned the engineering and construction company into a global powerhouse. In one of the largest electrical contracts undertaken in Canada, he was involved in Comstock's 25-to-60-cycle conversion contract for Ontario Hydro.
"They went into every home in Ontario and changed every appliance from 25 cycles to 60 cycles," Mrs. RATHGEB said.
Other Comstock projects included the Trans Mountain oil pipeline in Western Canada, the St. Lawrence Seaway, the Distant Early Warning radar system in the Far North, the Toronto subway system, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration space facility at Cape Kennedy, Florida, the trans-Sahara Algerian gas pipeline and the Okosombo dam in Ghana.
Other men would have been overwhelmed by the work, but not Chuck RATHGEB. Nothing stopped him from taking on new sports and new horizons. The 6-foot-3, bluff and cheery sportsman responded to every siren call of adventure. He was once a member of Canada's Commonwealth cricket team, and he was a fanatic about hot-air ballooning, mountain climbing and big-game hunting. He shot the last legal tiger in India. In 1982, he and Vladimir Kavan, a Czech-Canadian businessman, trekked through Mongolia to hunt the Siberian ibex, the world's biggest mountain goat. It's a tough shot because the ibex has excellent vision. "If you were at King Street, the ibex could see you from Bloor Street," Mr. RATHGEB told The Globe on his return. "We were camped at 10,000 feet, and climbing after them at 12,000. The height affects you, but ibex just keep climbing." He and Mr. Kavan bagged four.
The pair became the first Canadians to balloon over the Alps in their personal Canadian centennial project of 1967. A year later, Mr. RATHGEB and then Ontario premier John ROBARTS experienced a misadventure near London, Ontario, when their balloon went out of control in inclement weather and wandered seriously off course. The police were called in, but, no problem: Mr. RATHGEB safely guided the balloon into a field.
Mr. RATHGEB managed Comstock's car-racing team and, in many instances, he would jump into the car himself to compete in such races as the 24-hour Le Mans, the 12-hour Sebring, the 24-hour Daytona, the London-to-Sydney rally, the Trans-Sahara rally and the 15,000-kilometre London-to-Peking Motor Challenge.
The Sahara trek proved to be a barnburner because his car broke down in the desert and he was reduced to drinking water from the radiator to survive. Eventually, the car was towed by camels to the nearest town. The car's undercarriage had been ruined by rocks and other debris. So, using his unlimited financial resources, Mr. RATHGEB had a four-wheel-drive Jeep Comanche pickup specially built in Toronto for the 1990 London-to-Peking trip. The overhaul of the truck included doubling the shocks and steel-plating its undersides.
"The London-Peking race was an endurance test," Mrs. RATHGEB said. "It lasted 56 days. Chuck spent many nights sleeping under the stars. It took him a few weeks to get over it."
Mr. RATHGEB was a member of the board of directors for about a dozen major Canadian companies over the years, and it was while he was with Canadair (now Bombardier) that he talked company officials into training him as a pilot. Participating in the British Columbia Centennial air race from London to Vancouver, he set a record for the smallest single-engine jet -- a CL41 Tutor -- to cross the Atlantic. "We landed in Iceland," he told The Globe. "Turning around on the runway, suddenly all the lights came on in the cockpit. We were out of gas."
For years, he was also the only Canadian to own an international offshore powerboat-racing licence. In a sport in which speeds exceed 180 kilometres an hour, he was the only Canadian entrant in the London-to-Monte Carlo and Miami-Nassau powerboat events.
On the side, Mr. RATHGEB ran a small thoroughbred-racing stable that experienced some success. He also ventured into show business to produce the Rex Harrison Broadway play Staircase and to promote a Doors rock concert.
But, in what may have been his most defining moment, he was first coach and then manager of Canada's bobsled team. As it happened, it was one sport he had never tried. The suggestion that he become involved came out of the blue at a cocktail party in Toronto in 1959. A friend, Doug CONNOR, asked him: "Chuck, how'd you like to represent your country in a world championship?"
"What game?" he asked.
"Take a guess."
"Hmm, do I have to train?"
"Nope."
"Do I have to quit drinking?"
"Nope."
Thus began an Olympic saga and a team made up of four Quebeckers: driver Vic Emery, his brother Dr. John Emery, Doug Anakin, and brakeman Peter Kirby.
Their first event was a world championship in St. Moritz, where they did much of their early training. "We arrived by train at night, so we weren't aware what we were in for," Mr. RATHGEB said. "See, everywhere else, you arrive at the bottom of the hill; in St. Moritz, you're at the top. You can look down a bit and it looks fine and then it curves off. But, in the morning, I walked down 100 yards and suddenly, my God, it's like falling off a 10-storey building."
Early in the going, Mr. RATHGEB occupied a spot on the sled. "It was enormously exhilarating to rush down a mountain at 150 kilometres an hour, pulling six Gs on the curves."
There were 20 teams that first year. "We won the Spanish-Canadian Cup.... It went to the team that wasn't last. The Spaniards crashed three times and we crashed three times, but our time was faster, so we were 19th."
Gradually, the team improved, moving up from 19th to 11th to fourth in successive world championships. By the 1964 Olympics, Mr. RATHGEB had become the team manager.
"The night before their run, they didn't seem too confident," he recalled in 1984, "so I gave the young woman on the switchboard a box of chocolates to fake a cable from the prime minister. 'All Canada rides with you today! Signed, Lester B. Pearson.'"
It did the trick. On the big day, 10,000 people lined the course. In one of the most electrifying triumphs in Canadian Olympic history, Vic Emery and Co. guided a half-ton sled down the 14-curve course at speeds of close to 150 km/h to win the gold medal, besting the favoured Italians with a time of 4 minutes 14.46 seconds. It was Canada's only gold medal at the Innsbruck Olympiad, the first year bobsledding was an Olympic sport.
"It was the last event at the Olympics," Mr. RATHGEB recalled years later. "We were the final team to race and we came out of it with gold medals. The pressure was even greater than competing in a Stanley Cup because you only have one chance and it's a chance you get once in a lifetime."
In a telephone interview from his home in London, England, Vic Emery said: "Chuck was a damn good manager. We didn't ask him for any extra financial help and he didn't offer any. He got us the equipment needed to fine-tune the sled. He arranged to have spring-loaded handles installed on the sides of the sled. It was a little innovation."
Ten years ago, Mr. Emery flew to Toronto to visit Mr. RATHGEB after he wound up in hospital as a result of a mosquito bite that had turned almost deadly. "I would tell Chuck stories in hospital to try and jaw him up and, sometimes, I'd get a slight smile out of him because he was out of it for four or five months."
Mr. Emery says he will be forever indebted to Mr. RATHGEB. "He was one of the most instrumental people in my life. If it were not for him, we might never had gotten the gold medal."
For all that, the triumph at the Olympics was just one of Mr. RATHGEB's many roles in a life that was as large as they come. "There's a little Walter Mitty in everybody," Mr. RATHGEB once said. "Some just dream, some mean to but never get around to it, and some do it."
His personal credo, he liked to say, was: "Rather than going to see the Grand Prix, why not be in it?"
Charles (Chuck) RATHGEB was born on December 2, 1921, in Trois-Rivières, Quebec He died of cancer on June 24, 2005, at his home in Toronto. He was 84. He leaves his wife, Rosemary. At his request, 12 uniformed Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers were pallbearers at his funeral.

C. John CLARKE
By Robert LEMON, Wednesday, October 12, 2005, Page A24
Architect, advocate, artist, survivor. Born June 25, 1954, in London, Ontario Died August 12 in Toronto of cancer, aged 51.
'Not from around here," we heard as we pulled up to the filling station.
Playing hooky from a conference in New Orleans, John CLARKE and I were deep in the Bayou, touring plantations and hunting for giant bottles of Tabasco sauce: two big white guys in a white LeBaron convertible. We shared many such adventures as our lives overlapped.
It was while we were studying for registration as architects that John told me that he was Human Immunodeficiency Virus positive. That was in 1984. He would survive for 21 more productive and creative years. But being Human Immunodeficiency Virus positive wasn't enough; first the Guillain-Barré Syndrome would almost paralyze him and then cancer would prove to be unbeatable. Despite this burden, John remained determined and stoic throughout his bouts of incredible pain.
We met while studying architecture at Carleton University, but it wasn't until we had both moved to Vancouver -- our apartments were just a block apart in the West End -- that we became Friends. John's place was much more interesting than mine, filled with his collection of art, propaganda graphics, Art Moderne furniture, found objects and an eccentric mix of Friends.
John worked on much of the designs for Expo 86, Vancouver's world's fair, and the big sphere he worked on is still there at the head of False Creek.
His delightfully post-modern Ping Pong gelato parlour on Denman Street is sadly just a memory now.
I am sorry I didn't see him as much in the last few years. He returned to his Ontario roots to live and work in Toronto. There, John delved into big projects, including Terminal 3 at Pearson airport and the rehabilitation of the former Toronto Stock Exchange at the Toronto-Dominion Centre. But, eventually, John had to retire from work as an architect to take care of his health. While doing so, he became knowledgeable about medical and alternative approaches to living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus, information he freely shared with others.
Lucy, his Jack Russell Terrier, was his constant companion at the Margaret Laurence Co-op where they lived in genteel poverty. Spearheading the creation of 16 additional units at the co-op was one of his greatest accomplishments, one that took nine years of his determination against many bureaucratic hurdles. Without John's stubbornness the space would still be a vacant elevator shaft. He died before he could achieve his next project -- a green roof for the building.
John worked out at the Young Men's Christian Association regularly, organized life-drawing classes with Friends and became an expert wood carver. He travelled when he could to places like Botswana, South Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Scotland and Australia. We vacationed in Mexico, where he suffered a horrendous broken arm while body surfing.
We kept in touch and he would visit Vancouver and I would drop in to see him in Toronto, where there was always a futon on the floor. John enjoyed summers at Stony Lake, first at a grand cottage on Davis Island and then at a tiny cabin across the lake. Our last weekend together -- just after Labour Day two years ago was at the cabin, where we spent a sunny afternoon on the dock while Lucy retrieved a giant stick from the lake over and over and over again.
In his last months, John remained at the Margaret Laurence co-op, when not in the hospital due to the complications of cancer. Lucy kept him company and his Friends, Eleanor, Cathi, and Sarah, and his sister Margaret and brother Robert were around to help him.
I thought of the Bayou adventure as I travelled to London for his funeral in a rented convertible -- this one a red Sebring the top down the whole way on the highway. Was it a coincidence that it was the only car left at Pearson the evening I arrived? John would have loved it.
Robert is John's friend.

CONKIE, Charles Henry
With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Charles Henry CONKIE in his 92nd year, on Tuesday, October 18, 2005, at the Rockcliffe Centre, Scarborough. Loving husband of Marion Eleanor CONKIE (née CORLETT,) devoted father of Richard Evans CONKIE (deceased 1990) and Heather Marion CONKIE, and beloved brother of Ron CONKIE. Charles leaves a granddaughter, Alexandra CLARKE, son-in-law Michael CLARKE, as well as nieces and nephews.
Charles was born on April 21, 1914, in Ayer, Scotland, but lived most of his life in Toronto. Charles joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943, and after the war he entered the printing industry.
Although focussed on the successful packaging business he founded, family was always most important to Charles; he was never too busy to take Richard and Heather to the myriad of lessons and recitals that led to their Associate, Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto degrees.
Over the years Charles and Marion happily shared many things with their family, among them a real love of Muskoka, where they owned a series of homes; today they maintain a place on Walkers Lake. Many thanks to all the wonderful staff at Rockcliffe. There will be no service at this time.

Dottie WILSON
By David WILSON, Friday, November 25, 2005, Page A24
Hospice pioneer, stepmother, wife. Born September 16, 1923, in Aurora, Ontario Died June 1 in Bayside, New York of heart failure, aged 81.
Dottie WILSON fervently believed that the traditional practice of forcing terminally ill patients through a gauntlet of pain in their process of dying, in the unrealistic, faint hope of miraculous recovery was morally indefensible, unnecessary and barbaric. And so in 1974, she became captivated with the new field of hospice and palliative-care medicine, just then being introduced into Canada at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal by Dr. Balfour Mount.
She immersed herself in the hospice movement, becoming the administrator of the palliative care service at the Royal Victoria Hospital, North America's first hospital-based hospice. In 1979, we left Quebec and moved to Chevy Chase, Md., to work with Elm Services Inc., one of the largest U.S. health care consulting firms. As their hospice consultant, she worked internationally with local health care organizations, teaching and encouraging hospice development.
In 1982, after completing a feasibility study of a hospice for children at Saint Mary's Hospital for Children in Bayside, New York Dottie was retained to oversee its design, construction and startup. The facility became the first hospice for children in the world. After its completion, she remained as its director for five years until her retirement.
Born Dorothy Nettie CLARKE in Aurora, Ontario, to Caroline and Ernest CLARKE, she was the second of three children, between older sister Mary Louise and younger brother Douglas.
Many years ago, I asked her father what he thought was the most important thing about a sign for my new store. I was stunned when he answered "that it not fall down." Yet it was fundamental, down-to-earth and revealed his methodical, basic and practical way of thinking. I believe that her father instilled that way of looking at things into her.
After graduating with a degree in sociology from the University of Toronto in 1946, she worked for several years with Dr. Perry Culver at the Massachusetts General Hospital until she moved to Montreal in 1951, where she became a systems and procedures analyst for what was then the RCA Victor company. She then became Canada's first female management consultant with the Montreal accounting firm of Riddell, Stead, Graham and Hutchison.
In 1959, she married David WILSON, a Montreal businessman and later a psychoanalyst and group therapist in New York City. This marriage was her second.
Dottie is remembered for her skill in empowering the infant dreams of nascent startups in the health care field. Her expertise was honed in guiding the development of her husband's many startup projects.
After her retirement from Saint Mary's, Dottie helped Dr. Louis Ormont create the Center for Group Studies. Ironically, Dottie herself was forced into the gauntlet of severe pain by the development of an excruciating ulcer during a recent hospitalization for disorientation. She knew that common hospice protocols for wound care might have avoided this tragedy, so, after weeks of pointless suffering, and recognizing the hopelessness of her situation, she chose to enter a local hospice program. She knew that the hospice focus on the quality of life, rather than clinging to life at any cost, would help her win the relief she deserved.
She is survived by her husband David WILSON, her nephews Rory CAMERON, Gordon CAMERON and David CLARKE, and her nieces Susan CAMERON, Margaret McCUTCHEON, Wendy ZAROWSKI and Sandra RANA. Stepsons David Andrew WILSON, Daniel Thompson WILSON and Douglas S. WILSON will sorely miss her.
David is Dottie's husband.

CLARKE, Robert Lee (April 17, 1922-December 22, 2005)
Robert Lee CLARKE died early Thursday morning of cancer. He was born in Vermilion, Alberta on April 17, 1922 to Harold J. CLARKE and Leonora Opfergelt CLARKE. He was educated in Vermilion, then at the University of Alberta (1939-1943), where he received the Governor General's Medal upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science. He went on to McGill University (1945-1948) to receive a Ph.D. in Physics. He worked at the National Research Council from 1943 to 1945, and Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. from 1948 to 1968. He then joined the Physics Department of Carleton University where he served as department chair in the 1970s. He formally retired in 1987, but continued to work in Medical Physics research as Professor Emeritus, and served on university committees, right up until the month before he died. In addition, he spent many periods of research at the Institute of Cancer Research at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Belmont, Surrey, United Kingdom. He was instrumental in setting up the medical physics research section at Carleton University and assisted in setting up the Ottawa Medical Physics Institute in 1989. On the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the Ottawa Medical Physics Institute, the Robert Clarke Graduate Scholarship in Medical Physics was set up. Devoted to Canada and to physics, Bob was a member of the Canadian Association of Physics from the beginning and enjoyed many professional and personal Friendships.
In 1943 he met Vera POWELL at N.R.C. They were colleagues in the Optics Section, and were married in 1945. There are four children: James (Betty LAM,) Gwyneth (Craig LEWIS,) Alan (Madeline WELD,) and Brian (Sandra COONEY.) There are eleven grandchildren: Owen (Carolina IBARRA), Roger (Becci GINDIN) and Edwin CLARKE, Brandon, Denise (Mike BILLY), Eleanor and Anna LEWIS; Ansel and Derwin CLARKE; and Liam and Colleen CLARKE; and three great grand children: Catherine, Reeva, and Mike Billy. Bob will also be remembered by Betty and Lloyd STACKHOUSE, Patricia CLARKE (late Donald), and nephews and nieces. His many Friends enriched and broadened his life.
Bob's interests were wide-ranging. He enjoyed games of tennis, and later squash until early 2005. For many years he flew small airplanes, in the United Kingdom and in Canada. He bicycled around Ottawa and took grandchildren boating on Dow's Lake. He enjoyed concerts at the National Arts Centre, attended Wednesday meetings at Riverside Kiwanis and delivered Meals on Wheels, where his regular Christmas delivery will be missed by many. He travelled extensively in Canada and in the United Kingdom and in many other parts of the world from Nigeria to Japan and places in between.
The family would like to thank Dr. BHIMJI and the staff on A5 at the Ottawa Civic Hospital for their care and compassion.
There will be a Private Family Funeral Service, and a Public Memorial Gathering at Carleton University at a date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Robert Clarke Graduate Scholarship in Medical Physics, care of Carleton University, or a charity of your choice.

Family mourns devoted father
Kenrick CHAPMAN stabbed to death '
He died with love in his heart'
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
Kenrick CHAPMAN loved his wife, his five children and his five stepchildren.
He tried to teach the children to make good choices, to stay out of trouble and make something of themselves.
The 60-year-old, who came to Canada as a young man from Guyana, was quiet and peaceful.
His stepson, Jamal CLARKE, remembers much of the guidance and advice CHAPMAN gave him.
"A man without principles is no man. You must have class and you must have principles," CLARKE said his stepfather would tell him.
CHAPMAN, a retired Ontario Hydro employee, was fatally stabbed on May 5 in his home near Jane St. and Finch Ave. W. at about 2: 20 p.m. A family friend who was staying at the home has been charged with second-degree murder.
CHAPMAN was buried on Saturday. "He was like a father to me," CLARKE said in an interview before the funeral. "He would teach me, guide me. Most of my thoughts and beliefs today are because of him."
CLARKE, 20, is a York University student and advocate against violence. He is working on several projects in the Jane-Finch community in an effort to help youth realize their potential.
"Ken made an impression on me," CLARKE said. "When I wasn't doing well in school, he supported me and encouraged me to work hard."
But CLARKE said he most appreciated CHAPMAN's love for his mother Janis. "He's always there for my mom. His priority was always my mom and the children," CLARKE said. "He was there for every event."
When CLARKE graduated from high school, CHAPMAN was there, dressed in a nice suit and cowboy boots "with his big camera snapping away."
The man charged in CHAPMAN's death was a close friend of the family.
The day of CHAPMAN's death, CLARKE said he left the house in the late morning, rushing to an appointment. He told CHAPMAN he would see him soon.
A few hours later, a neighbour called CLARKE and told him there were police and paramedics at his house. He rushed home and saw a trail of blood out the front door to the street. His grandmother, who lives with the family, gave him the news.
"I couldn't get mad or angry or sad. I was in shock," CLARKE said. "Why did this happen?"
And, he said: "I was upset that my grandmother was there. She didn't need to see that.
"Death is okay," he said. "An untimely death is not.... But I know Ken was at peace. And he died with love in his heart."
Lawrence GEORGE, 60, is charged with second-degree murder.

George BANCROFT, 82: Mentor and role model
George BANCROFT, 82, opened doors for black students
Former University of Toronto prof fought for diversity in the workforce
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A commissioner with the Ontario Human Rights Commission, executive director and senior policy adviser to the minister of multiculturalism and citizenship in charge of 125 staff and a $16 million budget, one of the seven-person team who wrote the groundbreaking Hall-Dennis report on Ontario's education, professor emeritus for scholarship at the University of Toronto, author, editor and contributor to a dozen papers and books, chair of umpteen educational community groups and professional organizations.
That's not all.
Hundreds of students credit George BANCROFT for their post-graduate degrees in education.
Claire ALLEYNE, registrar at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, said he was a "stalwart" in the black community, a dignified, old-school role model for the many he mentored.
"He was a fighter, but he did it by putting forth an educated, well-reasoned argument," she said.
Poet and University of Toronto professor George Elliott CLARKE hailed BANCROFT as one of a generation of black intellectuals whose work set high standards and opened doors for generations of black academics.
"These were the forebearers, the torch bearers, the door openers," he said. "We owe people like George BANCROFT a great debt."
BANCROFT was also the founder of the Harry Gairey scholarship awards (which has now been folded into the Harry Jerome Awards for outstanding black youth), one of the founders and a board member of Caribana as well as the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews. He was also a popular keynote speaker known for telling it like it is, not as people, even those listening, wanted it to be.
The latter trait is why his family believes he never received some of the appointments they think he should have. Plaques and honours from Indo-Canadian organizations, First Nations and Chinese-Canadian groups line the walls of his North York home, yet when he died May 16, at 82, BANCROFT had not received an Order of Canada nor a Senate seat, each of which his admirers had lobbied for on his behalf.
"He would have liked that," said his wife, Carole. "George was always passionate about seeing more blacks in stronger positions."
At university convocations, he would scan the crowd of graduates for black faces. He believed, fervently, that education would empower and promote young blacks within Canadian society.
"Where are they?" he would say to Carole. "They should stop dancing and start studying."
Friends have told her that while her husband was not afraid "to speak the truth to the powerful," he could also be quite acerbic about what he called the "race-relations industry."
In a 1984 edition of Graduate, University of Toronto's alumni magazine, he wrote of his decision to leave his tenured professorship and campus for "a rather palatial office with Her Majesty's Government of Ontario."
"I am a member of what is euphemistically called the visible minorities -- a wretched term," BANCROFT wrote. "As a result of increasing demand for significant rather than token recognition of minorities and to refute, 'you people do not apply,' Friends prevailed upon me to do so. I do not pretend reluctance. I wanted to enter what seemed to me to be the world of practical affairs."
But he missed his academic freedom and after three years he returned to U of T.
Even in the 1970s and 1980s, when multiculturalism policies were sweeping the country, BANCROFT often challenged what he saw as examples of stereotypical thinking. At one dinner attended by influential policy- makers and politicians, he ruffled feathers when he wanted to know why an Italian-Canadian couldn't be considered for the High Commission in Britain, as an example, instead of Italy.
"His main focus was how multiculturalism worked," said his son, George Jr., a 23-year-old student at the University of Toronto. "People shouldn't stay in their own groups all the time."
Upon learning of the appointment of Adrienne CLARKSON as Governor General, he personally wrote Jean CHRÉTIEN, prime minister at the time, expressing disappointment the post had not gone to a native Canadian.
In 1989, he was one of two commissioners of the Ontario Human Rights Commission calling for an investigation into the organization about its hiring practices after it became known that the head, Raj ANAND, had failed to hire any visible minorities for seven senior posts.
"I question why not a single non-white person was hired for the seven positions, especially considering the quality of some of the non-white candidates who applied," he told the Star in an article that noted that BANCROFT had "broken ranks" by speaking out.
BANCROFT called for an investigation of the matter. "The survival of the commission is at risk... (and) no taint can be attached," he said at the time.
BANCROFT came to Canada from his native Guyana in 1948.
"He was a young gentleman in white shoes, white suit, white panama hat and flamboyant ties who used purple ink," according to his older brother, Clarence, who said BANCROFT would have become president of the University of Guyana had he not followed so many of his countrymen to Montreal to study at McGill University.
He worked as a porter for Canadian Pacific Railways to finance that education, shining shoes, hauling luggage and learning how to hold his hand, palm up, close to his body, to receive the discreet tip.
"He talked to me about the emotions of that time. He was angry but never bitter," his son said.
Father also told son that many of the men with whom he worked became significant in their own right. Legendary head porter Harry GAIREY encouraged him to stay in school and BANCROFT never forgot. They were Friends until GAIREY died in 1993 when he was BANCROFT graduated from McGill with degrees in French and English, and moved to Toronto where he received his Master's degree and his PhD in educational theory. He taught at Forest Hill Junior High and Forest Hill Collegiate Institute for a decade -- although he had an unhappy work relationship with a principal there who never acknowledged his doctorate.
In 1967, he got a job in the U.S. at the faculty of education at New Jersey's Fairleigh Dickinson University but returned to Canada in 1969 to teach at U of T's faculty of education.
"He wanted to come back to Canada because it was less discriminatory although I hate that word -- than the U.S. and had an atmosphere in which he could make a better contribution," said Clarence, who is a retired school superintendent and church minister. George BANCROFT met his wife in 1976 at a Chopin black tie affair at Casa Loma.
She was a music teacher and graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music, and he was a music lover who was studying the saxophone and piano, and less successfully, the violin. He was 60 when their son was born. He was ecstatic. "He thanked me for months for giving him an heir," she said.
After he retired he had more time for his hobbies: he was an enthusiastic collector of antiques and roadside treasures. "We have antique doors, pots, vases, tables chairs -- he liked finding things," said George, Jr.
The students continued to seek him out. They would come to him, to sit with him in his magnificent and cluttered study under the gaze of his collection of busts of Voltaire, Paul Robson, W.E.B. Du Bois and other great men to get help on their theses and work up their oral presentations with him. Even now, they telephone just wanting to come to the house.
"They still want to be connected with him," said Carole.

RATHGEB, Charles Irwin (1921-2005)
Businessman - Sportsman Charles (Chuck) Irwin RATHGEB passed away peacefully at home in Toronto on June 24, 2005 at the age of 83. Chuck is survived by his loving wife and friend of 58 years, Rosemary CLARKE, originally of Montreal and nephew Thomas SCEATS, his wife Fabienne and nieces Charlotte and Martha. Loving thanks for continuing care to the house staff Tony, Gloria, Teresa and to Al and Sarah of the Bahamas. Special thanks to Dr. UNG of the Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and to Dr. Robert FRANCIS of Medcan. The Toronto Community Care Access Centre's palliative team headed by Dr. Russell GOLDMAN are to be commended for their loving care and support, as are his health care givers - Trudy, Joyce, Linda, Nellie, Valerio, George and Ken. Chuck RATHGEB was born in Trois Rivieres, Quebec. Moving to Toronto at an early age, he was educated at Upper Canada College and the University of Toronto (Zeta Psi). After leaving Upper Canada, he joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (13755) serving in Western Canada. Transferring to the Royal Canadian Navy he was a decorated officer, serving in the North Atlantic, Norwegian Sea, the Bay of Biscay and the invasion of Europe. Following the war, Chuck joined his father as proprietor of Comstock International Ltd. for over forty years in the field of mechanical and electrical construction with major undertakings across Canada, the United States and around the globe. He was a director of many major corporations both here and abroad and was associated closely with various charitable organizations. Chuck's big avocation was sports. He was at various times a Canadian member of the Commonwealth Cricket Team, a mountain climber (Canadian Rockies and Alps), a big game hunter (earning the Explorers' Club 'gold bracelet for big six' animals), member of the Canadian Marlin and Tuna Teams, 'Offshore' Power Boat Racer (Miami-Nassau, London-Monte Carlo), Cresta Rider and World Cup Bobsledder, as Manager of The Gold Medal Canadian Olympic Bob-Sled Team, Innsbruck, Austria - 1964. For many years, he ran the Comstock Ford Auto Racing Team, competing on major tracks in Canada, the U.S. and Europe and major rallies in Canada, Asia and Europe. He also found time to run a small but successful thoroughbred horse-racing stable. In the air, Chuck was an accomplished gas and hot air balloonist (Trans Canada, Trans Alpine), a glider pilot and a jet pilot, setting a World record Atlantic crossing in a Canadian CL41 jet. But the sport he enjoyed most was golf!

Please join us in a celebration of his life at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy. 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Saturday morning, November 19 at 11 o'clock.
