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

SELLORS, Roy (1913-2005)
On April 24, 2005, with his family at his bedside, Roy passed away, peacefully, at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. He was 91. A father, grandfather, great-grandfather, architect, professor and dean he was loved, admired and respected by his family, Friends, students and colleagues. He was predeceased in 2000 by Theresa (née GERVAIS,) his wife of 58 years; also by his brothers Harry, Ed and Dick. He is lovingly remembered by his 5 children: Paul (Libbie), John (Liz), Michael (Tess), Ed (Cheryl) and Liz (Richard HUTCHINGS;) his ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Roy was born in Winnipeg on June 8, 1913. He attended school in Winnipeg and graduated with the R.A.I.C. Gold Medal in Architecture at the University of Manitoba in 1936. A scholarship took him to Boston where he obtained his Masters Degree in Architecture at M.I.T. In 1941, Roy married Theresa (also from Winnipeg) in Fort Worth, Texas. He practiced Architecture in Chicago, Fort Worth, and Minneapolis before returning to Winnipeg, in 1948, to become a professor in the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba. He was Dean of Architecture from 1967 to 1974 and retired as Professor Emeritus in 1978. In addition to his academic career, Roy maintained a private architectural practice for over 30 years. He designed many buildings in Manitoba, specializing in churches, schools and private residences - including the family home on South Drive and a cottage at Lake of the Woods. He was a Registered Architect in the U.S. and Canada and a Fellow of both the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and the Royal Society of Art in London, England, a Member of the Manitoba Association of Architects, the Royal Institute of British Architects and the American Institute of Architects. He contributed to many local and international architectural projects including those of the Commonwealth Association of Architects. He was Vice Chair of the Canadian Housing Design Council and a member of the U. of M. Architectural Advisory Committee. His extensive work on the R.A.I.C. education committee included the development of the current minimum Syllabus Program. Roy and Theresa were enthusiastic supporters of the U of M Faculty of Architecture, the R.W.B., M.T.C. and the W.S.O. We thank all who assisted with the care of our father in his later years especially his caregiver Tess Dominguez. Heartfelt thanks are extended to the Manitoba Home Care Program, International Nannies and Homecare, Dr. Goodhand, Victoria Hospital's Lifeline, Riverview Health Centre and, with particular gratitude, to the Convalescent Home for their exceptional care.
