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.

Frank COLLOM
By Laurence KELLY, Monday, August 15, 2005, Page A14
Professor, not-for-profit specialist, father, grandfather, friend. Born on October 21, 1935, in Montreal. Died on July 17 in Kingston of cancer aged 69.
They filled every seat in the lecture hall and when he agreed to take "just one more", they sat in the aisles. Queen's University students clamoured to get into Frank COLLOM's business and industrial relations courses.
A recipient of the outstanding teacher award at Queen's and twice named the most popular professor in the university by Maclean's magazine, Frank had a huge influence on thousands of students.
He was also well-known to not-for-profit agencies across Ontario. Every year, managers and supervisors from organizations such as community living centres, the March of Dimes, and women's centres attended his training programs in Kingston, invariably giving rave reviews. Out of town, Frank would occasionally auction his sought-after speaking services, the highest bidder donating the fee to a charitable cause.
What made Frank COLLOM such a good teacher? A thorough knowledge of his subject matter and superior skills, obviously. But it was also his style and personality -- a relaxed, down-to-earth manner, an absence of airs and formalities (to everyone he was "Frank"), a genuine interest in people, and a great sense of humour.
Though he could look and sound professorial, deliberate as he explained a complex point, pensive as he pondered a question, the lighter side was never far away. It could be a quip or a zany example. It could be a question in his notoriously challenging 100-question multiple-choice tests: Frank would include at least one question about himself, his family, or a popular cartoon character so that no one could ever score zero.
Off the job, people were sometimes left wondering if Frank were serious or kidding. Chances were a statement was true but with a catch. Near the front of a bank lineup, Frank spotted a friend entering the line. Acknowledging his friend's wave, Frank paused, smiled and said, deliberately, "I just won the lottery!" All eyes focused on the lucky winner, there, no doubt, to deposit his winnings. He chuckled. "I got three numbers right."
Golfer, gardener, talented artist, Frank enjoyed his hobbies. But he was never happier than when surrounded by family and Friends. Christmas was one such occasion. It brought together, almost literally, "kids from 1 to 93" to share wife Pat's magnificent feast. The dinner table was Frank's stage. He'd be first to pull a Christmas cracker. Selecting an opponent, he would pinch the foils and slip his thumb inside so that he could generate the loudest bang, get the laughter going, and be the first to don the paper crown. (The loser got to win next time).
Frank revelled in the company of his children, his grandchildren, and other people's kids. A friend's daughter recalls family visits when she and her sister were young. "Dancing, he pulled quarters out of our ears, winding us up, tight as jack-in-the boxes, so that we would be giddy, hyper and, to my mom's chagrin, impossible children for the rest of the day." Her sister never forgot how he could draw a cat using only the six letters in COLLOM. "I wanted my name to be COLLOM, too!"
Frank was content to leave people with their personal memories. Typically, because he eschewed accolades, he vetoed the idea of a memorial service at Queen's. Fittingly, a legacy fund is being set up to assist Queen's students pursuing studies or a career related to the not-for-profit sector. Frank is survived by wife Pat, children Sarah and Bill and six grandchildren.
Laurence KELLY, a long-time friend of the COLLOM family, wrote this essay with help from his daughter Claire.

It seems like yesterday...
Groceries in hand - you loved to entertain
A big smile on your face
As you walked down the sidewalk -"
Ronnie - I'm home"
It is but a dream...
You fought courageously to stay with us
You tried with all your might
But, alas we lost you to Heaven above
Connie, your very being was a gift
As a wife, mother and gramma
You nurtured us
You kept us safe and warm
You gave our spirit strength and courage
To carry on.
Your life is a testament
To all things wonderful and good
What a wonderful wife, mom and gramma you were - and still are - In our hearts and memory
Connie, today is your birthday
We celebrate this day
For today is the day you were born.
You will never be forgotten.

Paul ROAZEN, Scholar And Writer: (1936-2005)
York University professor chronicled the development of psychoanalysis and explored Sigmund Freud's complex relationships with Friends, family and followers
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 8, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Of the many accomplishments that could be attributed to York University professor Paul ROAZEN, perhaps the most lasting may be that he created a field of study that had never existed meta-psychotherapy.
Over the course of a long and extraordinarily productive career, the teacher of social and political science deconstructed the many different relationships that existed within the world of psychotherapy, particularly those that wove in and around its iconic founder, Sigmund Freud.
"He was not involved in psychotherapy itself, but he was involved in the analysis of psychoanalysis," says Cyril GREENLAND, a former professor of social work at McMaster University and a friend of Dr. ROAZEN.
The bedrock of his work were lengthy interviews that Dr. ROAZEN conducted in the early 1960s with 70 of Freud's patients and colleagues -- interviews that uncovered quirks and diversions in the techniques that eventually turned into psychoanalytic orthodoxy. Among the striking findings was the revelation that the classic position of a psychoanalyst and his patient -- patient verbalizing on couch, doctor sitting behind him silently taking notes -- wasn't how the process originally began.
Freud was initially quite chatty and spoke directly to his patients until surgery for mouth-and-throat cancer made him so self-conscious about his appearance that he preferred to interview without being seen.
Dr. ROAZEN also revealed that Freud had broken what might be thought of as the sacrosanct boundary between patient and parent by psychoanalyzing his daughter Anna. His deconstruction of Freud and his methods infuriated the psychoanalytic community in general and Anna FREUD in particular. So much so that she subsequently wrote in a letter: "Everything Paul ROAZEN writes is a menace." But illustrative of how much Dr. ROAZEN saw his duty to speak the truth as he saw it, the remark was something he quoted proudly.
Another classic among his other 22 books was Brother Animal, in which Dr. ROAZEN (pronounced Roe-zuhn) unravelled the relationship between Freud and Viktor TAUSK -- a student who became a brilliant but troubled colleague, was the lover of one early woman psychiatrist and the patient of another, and eventually committed suicide. A reviewer in The New York Times called the book "an altogether compelling excursion into psychoanalytic history that develops like an intellectual mystery story."
Following in the path of Freud, who co-wrote a psychoanalytic history of Woodrow Wilson, Dr. ROAZEN published in 1998 a study of Mackenzie KING, Canada's King: An Essay in Political Psychology. In 1916, after King fell into a deep depression, he went to Johns Hopkins University for treatment by a psychiatrist. Using notes and letters in the Johns Hopkins archives, Dr. ROAZEN produced a vivid picture of a man so mentally disturbed he believed other people were influencing him through electrical currents and, conversely, that he could influence them back with currents he generated himself.
In a review of the book, Paul ADAM/ADAMS, a former Globe and Mail Middle East correspondent, wrote that Dr. ROAZEN's "cautious, knowledgeable and sympathetic approach cuts quite a contrast to the half-baked psychologizing we read all the time about everyone from Saddam Hussein to Lucien Bouchard."
Part of what ensured Dr. ROAZEN's even-handedness was his phenomenal memory for detail -- particularly when it came to Freud.
"If you would ask him what Freud did on September 2, 1916, he would ask back, 'In the morning or afternoon?' -- that's how detailed his memory was," recounts Hans MOHR, a friend of 40 years and a former colleague of Dr. ROAZEN's at York.
But, like the subject matter he pursued, it was difficult to encapsulate Dr. ROAZEN in a single frame.
He was born in Massachusetts and attended Harvard University, where he received his doctorate in 1965. He soon joined the faculty and stayed until 1971, when he moved to Toronto's York University as part of a stream of new professors joining a quickly growing institution full of multi-disciplinary energy. "His persona was his work; his life was his work," his son Jules said about his father's central passion.
As a teacher, Dr. ROAZEN was, in equal parts, brilliant, daunting and acidulously dismissive. While open to students on many levels, "Paul often overwhelmed undergraduates with the breadth and diversity of his historical allusions and references, expecting a depth and sophistication... that many graduate students do not yet possess," recalls Daniel BURSTON, a former graduate student of Dr. ROAZEN who now teaches at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
As an individual, he also was -- the word is used repeatedly by people who knew him -- irascible. "He could be very bad tempered and very demanding," says Prof. GREENLAND. "On the other hand, he could be very wise and very generous and very helpful. On any given day, it was difficult to predict which Paul ROAZEN you would get."
Author John Robert COLOMBO, who was a friend, recounts attending a presentation by a graduate student to a small group of people where Dr. ROAZEN exploded because "it was not up to the master's level, and, oh, it was appalling. He later followed and phoned everyone and didn't apologize but gave reason for his attack, as though there was no moral culpability there."
Nonetheless, the energy that he put into analyzing psychoanalysis produced works so instructive both to the therapy community and to those wishing to understand the effect of the psychotherapy world view on the intellectual zeitgeist of the 20th century that any personal flaws were overlooked by those who came after.
"I think Paul's greatest contribution to psychotherapy was his willingness to confront legends and, in the process, to reveal truth," said Deirdre Bair, the British author of a much-praised biography of psychotherapist Carl Jung. "He did not hesitate to go where angels fear to tread and, in the process, he trampled... many iconic images.
"His gift to the discipline was to seek out the truth, no matter how unpleasant it might have been for the entrenched 'authorities' to read it," says Ms. Bair, who had been encouraged by Dr. ROAZEN to write the Jung book.
"Whether they know it or not, everyone working in this field today is directly or indirectly in his debt," says Prof. BURSTON.
After taking early retirement from York, Dr. ROAZEN moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts., and continued writing. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Canada in 1993 and made an honorary member of the American Psychoanalytic Association in 2004.
Paul ROAZEN was born in Boston in 1936. He died of complications from Crohn's disease at his home in Cambridge on November 3. He was 69. He leaves his sons Daniel HELLER- ROAZEN, a professor of comparative literature at Princeton University, and Jules ROAZEN, a banker in New York; a brother, Dr. Bernard ROAZEN, of San Francisco; and a sister, Sheila WEISS, of Westport, Connecticut.
His marriage to Deborah HELLER, now a professor of English at York University, ended in divorce.
