WOODRUFF, Doctor Merrill Emerson, O.D., M.A., PhD.
(February 3, 1925-May 8, 2005)
After a long illness, Emerson WOODRUFF of Waterloo, passed away at Chateau Gardens, Elmira on May 8, 2005.
Merrill Emerson WOODRUFF was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. After completing high school, he served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was discharged in 1945 with the rank of Flying Officer, and soon after began his optometric studies at the College of Optometry of Ontario. When Doctor WOODRUFF graduated in 1950, he received the J.C. Thompson Memorial award for highest achievement in theoretical optometry.
Doctor WOODRUFF practiced optometry in West Lorne and Blenheim, Ontario from 1950 to 1962. He was also an active member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists. He served as the local society president and later as vice-president of the Ontario Association of Optometrists. In the early 1960s, Doctor WOODRUFF was a co-author and presenter of the Ontario Association of Optometrists' brief to the Royal Commission on Health Services in Canada.
In 1963, Doctor WOODRUFF began his graduate studies at Indiana University. In the first year of his PhD program in physiological optics, he authored a position paper entitled 'The Effective Utilization of Optometrists within the Programs of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare' for the American Optometric Association. While completing his PhD studies, Doctor WOODRUFF was appointed as a lecturer in optometry at Indiana University. In 1966, he became an Assistant Professor.
In 1967, Doctor WOODRUFF accepted the posts of Associate Professor of Optometry and Director of Clinics at the School of Optometry, University of Waterloo. In 1967, he was co-author of the University's brief to the Ontario Government's Committee on the Healing Arts in Ontario.
As clinic Director, Doctor WOODRUFF became part of a faculty team that introduced several innovative concepts (such as mobile clinics and satellite clinics) to clinical teaching. Some programs focused on geriatric care and particularly on improving refractive care of infants and children. This area was the subject of Doctor WOODRUFF's Doctoral dissertation. Clinics were operated in certain Caribbean Islands, throughout much of northern Ontario, and in New Brunswick and Manitoba. In northern Ontario, the visual problems of several thousand Cree Indian children were attended to in these clinics.
Doctor WOODRUFF taught environmental optics, which relates visual abilities and vocational and avocational activities. He also taught a variety of clinical and theoretical subjects including Geometric Optics, Visual Physiology, Children's Vision Care, Ocular Pathology, Anatomy of the Visual Apartus, and Clinical Pathology. From 1975 to 1981, Doctor WOODRUFF served as Director of the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo.
Over the years, Doctor WOODRUFF has lectured to numerous societies on a broad range of clinical and theoretical aspects of vision care. He has testified as an expert witness for the Indiana and Wisconsin State Boards and for several Canadian Royal Commissions. He also served as a consultant to the Ministry of health of New Brunswick.

He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, a member of the American Optometric Association, the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the Ontario Association of Optometrists, Sigma Xi, and the Association for Research in Ophthalmology. Doctor WOODRUFF was appointed to the Waterloo Regional Health Planning Council and later became Chairman of the Waterloo District Health Council.
Doctor WOODRUFF's academic excellence was widely acknowledged. In addition to being the recipient of many academic awards, he received scholarships and research grant awards of over $150,000. He retired from the University of Waterloo in 1990.

A partner in the first all-female law firm in Toronto, she became a highly respected provincial court judge who brought a human touch to her family law courtroom, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, March 22, 2005, Page S9
The law was as familiar as family for Madam Justice Lynn KING. Her father, her uncle and her aunt were all judges. And yet there was nothing traditional about her approach to the law, either as a lawyer or as a judge.
"She was completely fearless. She didn't care what anybody thought, which is a great strength in a judge," said Mr. Justice Brent KNAZAN of the Ontario Provincial Court. As an illustration, he referred to her 1991 judgment when she ruled that keeping young offenders in overcrowded and filthy holding cells without adequate access to counsel constituted cruel and unusual treatment and violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
"She took a personal interest in every kid who stood up in front of her," said Mr. Justice Brian WEAGANT of the Ontario Provincial Court, who had appeared before her many times as a defence counsel. She was in the vanguard of pushing for easy access to expert representation, he said. After Judge WEAGANT was appointed to the bench, he found her extremely supportive as a colleague.
"Lynn had the ability to make every person in her courtroom feel like a human being," said Madam Justice Harriet SACHS of the Ontario Provincial Court. She described how Judge KING, her former law partner and friend, created an atmosphere -- especially in youth court -- in which teenagers felt she was seeing them as people rather than as young offenders.
Judge KING, she said, was a leader both as a lawyer and as a judge, and intuitively understood what was just. "She had the intellectual capacity to reason her way, but she also had such an instinct for justice."
"She was very kind, extremely generous and very fair -- everything I try to be," said Judge KING's older son, Jonah, 22, a student at Trent University in Peterborough. "She didn't have a biased bone in her body."
Lynn KING grew up on the shores of Ramsay Lake in Sudbury, one of three children of Harry and Madelaine WAISBERG. There's a story Judge KING loved to tell about how, as a child, she showed up at school in the depths of winter without a hat or mittens. An outraged teacher called her mother demanding to know how Mrs. WAISBERG could let her daughter leave the house without winter clothing. "Wait until you get to know Lynn," her mother replied calmly.
In 1961, in her final year of high school, her parents sent her to board at Toronto's Branksome Hall, where she met her lifelong friend Wendy WRIGHT, now an assignment editor at CTV News. "We were the only two Jewish girls in residence," Ms. WRIGHT recalled yesterday. "We didn't look at all alike, but they kept getting us confused and, to this day, we still giggle about whether they could see past our religion."
Describing her friend as a very giving woman, Ms. WRIGHT said "her sense of humour was what was so thrilling and the ray of light that got me through that year. She was brilliant in high school; she had insight beyond her years and a sense of social responsibility that was clearly developed by then."
Judge KING then went to the University of Toronto, where she earned a degree in economics, followed by a master's degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts., and then back to the University of Toronto for a law degree. She was called to the bar in 1973, in the incremental wave of women that began receiving law degrees in Canada. A committed social activist, she began practising with Paul COPELAND and her then husband, Greg KING, in a small law office in midtown Toronto. "She was a progressive person with a heart of gold who did a nice job for her clients," said Mr. COPELAND, mentioning that Judge KING mainly did matrimonial work when she was his law partner.
After her marriage broke up, she left Copeland King and taught at Osgoode Hall for a year before joining lawyers Mary CORNISH and Harriet SACHS to form Cornish King and Sachs in 1976, the first all-female law firm in Toronto.
"I prefer to control my own work, to choose my partners and clients, to focus on women's issues," she told journalist Judy STEED in a 1980 article on women lawyers. Ms. CORNISH said: "She was very active in using the law as an instrument of social change, and she did it in a number of different ways as a lawyer and a judge, especially around gender issues in terms of family law and, ultimately, youth justice."
Judge SACHS added: "She had an enormous capacity for empathy and it never compromised her ability to see the essence of a situation."
In 1980, Lynn KING wrote What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation and Divorce, a guide written from a woman's point of view that focused on the financial, legal and business side of marriage. In 1986, she co-authored Women Against Censorship.
She met her second husband, writer M.T. (Terry) KELLY, in 1979. At the time, he was writing a relationship column for The Globe and he went to her law office to interview her about the acrimony that seems so inevitable a part of divorce. "She wouldn't go out with me for a year," he said yesterday. They met again at a party and he was "just enchanted" because she was "so beautiful and elegant and smart."
An unlikely couple in some ways -- she a legal expert and an urbanite, he a writer and an aspiring canoeist -- they meshed their different lifestyles and interests in a loving partnership that lasted for nearly 25 years. "I found her very sensitive and all the things a lawyer has to be -- and a very different kind of mind from mine."
After working as a lawyer for 13 years, she was appointed a provincial court judge at 41 by then Ontario attorney-general Ian SCOTT in David PETERSON's Liberal government. Journalist June CALLWOOD described Ms. KING "grinning with delight and nervousness" on her first day on the bench in an 1986 article for The Globe.
As a lawyer, she had successfully argued before the Ontario Supreme Court that the province's censorship law was unconstitutional. Despite that high profile, she welcomed the appointment to the bench. "A lawyer presents only one side of the case," she told Ms. CALLWOOD. " The judge can't be so cavalier. A judge is required to be sensible and responsible, but a judge is also able to be creative. I wanted to be able to make the decisions that I used to wish judges would make."
She delighted in gossip and loved to party, and she had a passion for crossword puzzles and matchmaking, frequently trying to fix people up, even those who were already committed to other partners. "Nobody minded because she was so engaging and funny," said Judge SACHS.
"She was one of these mothers who loved her kids for who they were," continued Judge SACHS. " She didn't want them to be little replicas of her, but she was always in their corner. She respected them as people and she was endlessly delighted by them."
Judge KING was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 1999. She continued to work around treatment as the disease went into remission and then metastasized. She went on disability late in 2004 and made her last public appearance at a Boxing Day party, appearing frail but elegant in a black velvet dress. In her final days, her husband said, she watched both soap operas and the televised proceedings of the Gomery inquiry into the federal sponsorship scandal. She died at home in his arms.
Lynn KING was born on April 19, 1944, in Sudbury, Ontario She died on Friday of breast cancer at home in Toronto. She was 60. She is survived by her husband, M.T. (Terry) KELLY, her sons Jonah and Max, her mother, two siblings and their families. The funeral is today at Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel in Toronto.
