JENKYNS, Arthur Thomas (1921-2005)
We are privileged indeed, to celebrate the life of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. Art JENKYNS of Calgary passed away at Foothills Hospital on Wednesday, January 26th, 2005 at the age of 83 years. Art, the founder of Operation Eyesight, was a man of integrity, passion, and determination. These qualities were evident in his relationship with his God, his undying devotion and passionate fervour, for his wife, Una, and family, and his unending, joyful service to others. He started his selfless service involvement with the Boy Scouts and immediately felt compelled to be a fine role model of integrity, compassion and ethical behaviour. 'A careful man I want to be A little fellow follows me; I do not dare to go astray For fear he'll go the self-same way.' -- Art JENKYNS. At the same time he met, and subsequently married, a bright, energetic, compassionate, Scottish lass, Una LOCKERBIE, also involved with the Boy Scouts. Art began working as an accountant and soon became manager of Swift Canadian, moving later to Marsh and McClennan Insurance Brokers, where he became the Accounting Manager. It was during this time, at First Baptist Church, that he heard a young doctor, Ben Gullison talk about the plight of thousands of people in need of corrective eye surgery. This surgery was a simple procedure that would help restore their sight. Art's compassionate heart was touched and his brilliant business sense aroused, when he considered the small investment necessary for such a huge life altering change, resulting in a blind child seeing his Mother for the first time, a young man seeing the colours of his landscape and home. What price could be placed on such a gift? Art went to the 'Baptist Men's' group and encouraged them to support this doctor, never knowing that from these humble beginnings over two million people would have their eyesight restored, over thirty-three million treated, and over a million children treated. Operation Eyesight was born. There were soon two desks at Marsh and McClennan: one for 9: 00 to 5:00 where he did his managerial tasks, and one from 5: 01 to 9:00 p.m. from which he orchestrated Operation Eyesight. He ran an organization that became self-sufficient and was recognized as a brilliant visionary and ethical Businessman. Throughout his lifetime, Art received many honours, distinctions, and awards, including an Honourary Doctorate of Law degree from the University of Calgary, the Order of Canada to which he was invested as a member in December 1979. Art and Una built a life together which spanned sixty-one years. He is survived by his loving wife, Una JENKYNS; five children, Tom (Janice McNABB), Linda (Ron MATUSKA), Arleigh, Bill, and Jim (Brenda VICKERS;) his grandchildren Eleanor, Glenys, Michael, Mark, Christine, Perry, Bryan, Jeff, Jocelyn, Julian, and Jeremy; and great-grand_son, Domingo, who he loved, taught, supported, and positively encouraged until the moment of his death. Art never stopped serving others, he is an example for us all. We will always miss you, Dad! A Memorial Service will be held at the First Baptist Church (1311 - 4 Street S.W.) on Monday, January 31, 2005 at 2: 30 p. m. with the Reverend Jake Kroeker officiating. For ward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made in Art's name directly to Operation Eyesight Universal, #4 Parkdale Cres. N.W., Calgary, Alberta, T2N 3T8. In living memory of Art JENKYNS, a tree will be planted at Nose Creek Valley by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 Crowfoot Circle N.W., Calgary. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

BIGELOW, Wilfred Gordon
After a life lived with caring, intellectual curiosity and a profound sense of spirituality, Bill died peacefully in Toronto on Easter Sunday 2005. Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Bill was the son of Dr. Wilfred BIGELOW, founder of the first medical clinic in Canada, and Grace GORDON, nurse and midwife. He was raised in an environment that encouraged a love of family, nature, music and education. Bill attended Brandon College in the early 1930's and graduated from medicine at the University of Toronto in 1938. Following this, he served overseas as a Captain in the Royal Canadian Medical Army Corps, performing battle surgery on the frontlines. Returning home from the war, he furthered his studies at John Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland specializing in cardiac surgery. His experiences in the war with amputations due to frostbite led him to explore the principle of hypothermia. He felt strongly that to make progress in cardiac surgery, surgeons needed to open the heart and operate directly. Building on his wartime experiences, he theorized that if you could cool the heart, you could reduce oxygen requirements, interrupt circulation and open the heart. In 1947, Bill returned to Toronto, and established a hypothermia research unit at The Banting Institute. There, he performed the world's first open heart surgery on a dog using the principal of hypothermia, paving the way for its use on humans. At his lab, Dr. BIGELOW and his colleagues Dr. John CALLAGHAN and Dr. John HOPPS also developed the cardiac pacemaker. Bill was recognized internationally as the father of Canadian heart surgery. He received the Gairdner Foundation Award in 1959, was inducted into the Canadian Medical Association's Hall of Fame in 1997 and into the Order of Canada in 1981. Bill published numerous medical articles in scientific journals, educated aspiring cardiac surgeons from around the world, and authored two books, Cold Hearts and Mysterious Heparin. Along with his passion for medicine, Bill will be remembered for his love of the outdoors and his work on environmental causes. He served as a director of the Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy of Canada. He spent many happy hours on the islands of Georgian Bay, and at his farm in Collingwood with his beloved family, horses and dogs. He was an avid bird watcher who went on frequent field trips with his longtime friend Dr. Bruce CHARLES. In his latter years, he enjoyed many happy hours with his golf buddies at the Toronto Hunt Club. First and foremost, Bill was a family man and a devoted and loyal friend to many. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of almost 60 years, Ruth JENNINGS, who attracted his attention as a caring and efficient operating nurse at Toronto General Hospital. He was also predeceased by his infant brother Jack, and his sisters Mary GRANT (Millard,) and Toody McKINNON (Keith.) He is survived by his brother Dr. Dan BIGELOW and his wife Dr. Sonia SACEDA. As a loving father and grandfather, Bill led by example, demonstrating the importance of loyalty and the power of positive thinking and perseverance. He will be deeply missed by his daughter Pixie Bigelow CURRIE (Ian) of Toronto, and sons, John (Ellie) of Honolulu, Hawaii, Dan (Blanche) of Petersfield, Manitoba, and Bill of Toronto. He is remembered with affection by his grandchildren Scott CURRIE (Sarah,) Susanne COUTTS (Rob), Mathew BIGELOW, and Angela BEATTON (Don) and his nieces, nephews and their families. Bill adored children and was delighted with the birth of his three great grandchildren, Sophie and Chloe COUTTS and Stella CURRIE. The family recognizes with gratitude his caregivers Alma ABLONA, Beth LARA and Helen ABLONA and the staff of Belmont House. The funeral and interment will be private. A memorial service will be held at Rosedale United Church on Saturday, April 23, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. Donations in his memory may be made to establish The Bigelow Lectureship, Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, The Banting Institute, 100 College Street, Room 311, Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1L5, telephone (416) 978-5148; or to continue The Bigelow Book Prize, Cardiovascular Sciences Collaborative Program, 150 College Street, Room 83D, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 3E2, telephone (416) 978-7744.

Les BARTLEY, Lacrosse Coach and Executive: 1954-2005
As the man behind the Toronto Rock, he led a neophyte team to unsuspected heights in North American professional sport
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 23, 2005, Page S6
Toronto -- Over seven seasons of operation, the Toronto Rock lacrosse club has stick-handled its way from pro-sport obscurity to achieve cult status and a blaze of success both on the floor and at the turnstiles.
Suddenly, the National Lacrosse League's Rock is chic in Hogtown, and it's all because of Les BARTLEY. As head coach and general manager, he led the team to four league championships. Of course, he did not do it alone (former Toronto Maple Leafs executive Bill WATTERS is principal owner, and minority shareholders include Tie DOMI, Brendan SHANAHAN and Bobby ORR) but, as the mastermind of the team's success, he was the iconic head and leader of the current Rock dynasty.
Given that, it's all the more surprising to learn that Mr. BARTLEY himself was an unspectacular lacrosse player. Growing up in St. Catharines, Ontario, he also played football for St. Catharines Collegiate Institute. He was a defensive end when Malcolm ALLEN met up with him and discovered him to be "exceedingly strong" physically. "When he came into a room, he had a huge presence but not because he was 6-3 and weighed 250. He was a wiry guy about 5-10, 165 pounds."
Not long after graduating from high school, Mr. BARTLEY landed a job on the General Motors' V-8 assembly line in St. Catharines. He later became a union representative for United Auto Workers, which became the Canadian Auto Workers in 1985. He was what the union calls an "in-plant elected official" for the local in St. Catharines. For 20 years, he was a key negotiator in contract talks with General Motors both at the local and national level. As it happened, one of the people who worked with him at the Canadian Auto Workers office was Mr. ALLEN, his high-school crony and friend since 1968.
"Les was a compassionate, caring person," said Mr. ALLEN, who is financial secretary for the union's local in St. Catharines. "The employees he represented in contract talks, he put them first and foremost. When it came to family, he always wanted to know how you were and how the children was doing."
It was while at Canadian Auto Workers that Mr. BARTLEY decided to coach lacrosse on the side. In 1992, he joined the Buffalo Bandits for a short unpaid stint as a scout and then took on coaching duties when the team got off to an 0-3 start. So what did he do right off the bat? Well, he merely led the Bandits to 22 consecutive wins and a league championship. He followed that with title wins in 1993 and 1996.
In 1998, professional lacrosse evolved into the National Lacrosse League with the addition of the Ontario Raiders, the first Canadian franchise. Mr. HARTLEY became coach and the team went 6-6 playing out of Hamilton's Copps Coliseum. The following season, the Raiders were shifted to Toronto to become the Rock, and that's when Mr. BARTLEY spun his magic again, spearheading the team to four league titles in five years.
He also found a measure of success elsewhere. He coached Canada to international lacrosse titles, including the Heritage Cup served as the assistant coach of the St. Catharines senior A team that won its first Minto Cup in 10 years in 2001; and led Team Canada to the 2003 world indoor title.
"He's a guy who had no history in the game coming in to coach Buffalo and then he wins all these championships and becomes one of, if not the best coach lacrosse has ever known," said Jim VELTMAN, who was captain under Mr. BARTLEY in both Buffalo and Toronto for a total of 12 seasons.
Mr. BARTLEY was a legend at evaluating and acquiring talented players. As a motivator and coach, he was known for his pre-game pep talks and for his innovation.
He pioneered the use of specialists rather than two-way offensive and defensive players in a game that is dominated by offence.
"It was Les who implemented that style of having special offensive and defensive players and other coaches started doing the same thing," said Mr. VELTMAN. "I was a multi-faceted player and he wanted me to go out the offensive door but he allowed me to run back on defence. He gave me that latitude and I appreciated that."
"We have been and will be successful because we have depth with role clarity," Mr. BARTLEY once said. "Each player buys into playing their specific role. It simplifies everything. Each guy just does his job at the best level they can." But Mr. BARTLEY wasn't just a coach who stood behind the bench. Off the floor, he held team-bonding sessions at hotels in places such as Orillia, Ontario, and he would bring in sports psychologists to help bring out the best in his players.
"Les used mental imagery and exercises a lot," said Mr. VELTMAN. "He'd take you in a high school and have you jumping 20 feet off a platform in a harness -- stuff like that. That was a way to deal with the rougher edge in a person and lacrosse player. He was very fanatical and when he spoke, he was intense and passionate but he wasn't an in-your-face coach."
At first, some team members were puzzled by the techniques but soon discovered his off-the-floor tactics contributed to the team's success. "I can see now where he was coming from with his ideas," Rock goaltender Bob WATSON told reporters after the team won this year's National Lacrosse League championship without Mr. BARTLEY behind the bench.
One way or another, he brought it all together with the result that his overall coaching record of 93-38 (.709) in the regular season and 18-4 in the playoffs remains the best of any coach in National Lacrosse League history.
Mr. BARTLEY fell ill at the end of the 2003 season and was forced to relinquish his duties, although he stayed on as vice-president. Last year, he drew on his labour-negotiating experience and set aside his illness to coax the National Lacrosse League and its players' association to agree on a new three-year collective bargaining agreement at a time when the players had threatened to go on strike. As it turned out, he was a voice of reason when one was most needed.
"The players hold him in such high regard that his presence at the bargaining table elevated the level of trust in the process," National Lacrosse League commissioner Jim JENNINGS said.
In recognition, on May 9, the league named him executive of the year and renamed its coach-of-the-year award the Les Bartley Trophy.
On May 14, just before the Rock won its fifth league championship against the Arizona Sting in front of a crowd of 19,432, Mr. BARTLEY's story was told in a three-minute video that earned a standing ovation.
Les BARTLEY was born on March 11, 1954, in St. Catharines, Ontario He died there on May 15, 2005, of colon cancer. He is survived by his wife, Gloria, and children Matt and Laura. A private family service was held on May 16.

Peter JENNINGS, Anchorman: 1938-2005
ABC's Canadian newscaster brought the world's biggest stories into the homes of millions of Americans
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, August 9, 2005, Page S9
Peter JENNINGS was a high-school dropout who became ABC television's definitive face of world events in a stellar 45-year career as a foreign correspondent and news anchor. A proud Canadian who only applied for dual citizenship in the United States after 9/11, he was a man of exceptional physical grace and legendary stamina.
Counting down to the turn of the millennium in December, 1999, he was on the air for 25 hours, winning a Peabody Award for ABC and an audience of 175 million for the biggest live television event ever. During the week of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in September, 2001, he anchored ABC's coverage for more than 60 hours, providing an informed and calming presence.
Among his many coups, he was the first Canadian journalist to arrive in Dallas after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963; he used his Canadian passport to report from inside Cuba for ABC when the country was off-limits to Americans; and he deployed his expertise on the Middle East and the Black September guerrillas to award-winning advantage during the Munich Olympics in 1972.
He loved the camera as much as it favoured him. In the early part of his career, his crisp good looks and forthright demeanour damaged his credibility as an anchor. Later, after time and wrinkles had weathered his classic good lucks, critics quipped: "He's now as good as he used to think he was." Another said: "He's 10 times better than people have a right to expect because he's so good looking."
Offstage, he was as restless romantically as he was intellectually, saying "I do" four times. Like many veteran journalists, he was a reformed smoker. He started sneaking puffs at 11 and it soon became compulsive. He consumed three packs a day until he quit in 1980 after his first child was born. He relapsed for a few months after the terrorist attacks in 2001, but conquered his addiction for a second time. He was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer in April this year.
Peter Charles JENNINGS was born in Toronto, the older of two children of homemaker Elizabeth OSBORNE and Charles JENNINGS, chief announcer for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio and later vice-president for regional programming. Describing his father as one of the pioneers of radio news, Mr. JENNINGS compared him with the legendary Edward R. Murrow. As a young boy, Mr. JENNINGS remembers his father challenging him to "describe the sky" and, after he complied, telling him to "go out and slice it into pieces and describe each piece as different from the next." He also credited his father and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for teaching him to respect the audience and the ethic that "everybody in the country has a right to hear themselves represented somehow on the national broadcasting system."
Mr. JENNINGS made his own debut behind the microphone at the age of 9 when he began hosting Peter's People in 1947, a weekly half-hour Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio show of music and news for children. His father, who had been in the Middle East on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation business when the program first aired, was outraged to learn his son was broadcasting for his own employer because he "couldn't stand nepotism," according to an interview Mr. JENNINGS gave the U.S. edition of Reader's Digest in 2002.
At 11, he began boarding at Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario, where he excelled at cricket, hockey and football. Six years later, he shifted to Lisgar Collegiate in Ottawa (where his father had been transferred to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation headquarters in the early 1950s). School couldn't compete with sports and the real world and he dropped out before graduation, much to his parents' chagrin. "He was totally bored sitting in a classroom and learning things," said Phyllis BRUCE, an executive editor at Harper Collins publishers and a family friend since 1960. "He had a terrific education by travelling and living around the world, but formal education never suited him temperamentally."
Although he ran away from school to be a broadcaster, he ended up in the archetypical Canadian job -- a bank teller. He fantasized that the Royal Bank of Canada would transfer him to the bank's branch in Havana. Instead, they sent him to Prescott, a small town on the St. Lawrence, and then to Brockville, where he was hired by radio station CFJR for his first real job in radio.
He soon gravitated to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, where he hosted Let's Face It, a public-affairs show, and Time Out, an afternoon talk show. In 1962, he moved back to Ottawa for a job with CJOH-TV, where he appeared as special-events commentator and host of Vue, a daily late-night interview program that he also co-produced.
CTV lured him away to anchor the first national news broadcast out of Ottawa on the private network in 1962. Having an Adonis-like newscaster in that era of avuncular anchors moulded after Walter Cronkite was quite a departure. Naturally graceful, Mr. JENNINGS had an affinity for the camera -- and it for him. "It gave him an authority and a confidence that came across when he was covering the news that was probably inherited," remembered Ms. BRUCE, "but he certainly had the capacity to have the camera love him and he loved it back."
He was reporting on the Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City for CTV when Elmer W. Lower, then president of ABC News, offered him a job as a correspondent for the network.
He left his higher-paying anchor job at CTV and moved to New York in September, 1964, to go back to reporting. "I decided, ironically enough, that I was tired of being an anchorperson," he told Jeffrey Simpson for his book Star-Spangled Canadians. "I was too young and too ill-equipped, and America I perceived as this great new canvas on which to paint, to use the cliché. I was also aware that neither CTV or Canadian Broadcasting Corporation could afford to send me anywhere."
He'd been on the job for only a few months when ABC executives plunked the 26-year-old correspondent behind a desk and made him anchor of the network's 15-minute nightly newscast. They were hoping he might entice younger viewers away from CBS's Walter Cronkite or the NBC duo of Chet Huntley and David Brinkley.
Mr. JENNINGS took the anchorman reins from Ron COCHRAN -- by coincidence, also a Canadian -- on February 1, 1965. Critics were scathing, calling him a "glamorcaster" and complaining that he was too young and inexperienced. He once jokingly asked the ABC makeup artist to draw bags under his eyes so he would look his age. Viewers didn't like his Canadian accent and the way he said "leftenant" instead of "lieutenant." When he mispronounced Appomattox, an iconic Civil War battle, and misidentified The Marine Hymn as Anchors Away at Lyndon Johnson's presidential inauguration, scathing critics sniffed blood.
He lasted three years in the anchor seat, before being sent back to the field as a roving correspondent -- a decision he never regretted for it was the making of him as a news broadcaster. Beginning in January, 1968, he spent most of the next 10 years abroad, working first in the Middle East, where he became an expert on the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict. His program Palestine: New State of Mind, for the ABC News half-hour documentary series Now, was considered by many observers to be the most thoughtful analysis of its day of the confused political situation in that area.
As head of the newly established ABC News Middle East bureau in Beirut in the early 1970s, Mr. JENNINGS conducted the first interview with Palestine Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat to be televised in the United States. When ABC sent him to Munich for the non-sports coverage of the 1972 Olympics, his hard-won expertise and his dogged reporting came into play after the Black September group seized the Israeli compound.
Not only could he provide analysis of the group's background and goals, but he also hid himself and a camera crew close enough to the compound that they were able to get clear pictures of the guerrillas, their faces masked by stockings and floppy hats, dashing in and out. "It was among the most gripping episodes ever shown on live television," wrote Barbara Matusow in her 1983 book, The Evening Stars: The Making of the Network News Anchor. Undoubtedly, he helped ABC win an Emmy for outstanding achievement in the coverage of special events.
Two years later, he won a George Foster Peabody Award for his dual roles as chief correspondent and co-producer of Sadat: Action Biography, a candid profile of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat that aired on December 19, 1974. Among Mr. JENNINGS's other scoops were his inside reports from Cuba and his behind-the-lines coverage of the civil war in Bangladesh in 1971, for which he received a National Headliner Award.
He went back to the United States at the end of 1974 for an unsuccessful stint as Washington correspondent and newsreader for A.M. America, ABC's first attempt to cash in on the lucrative early-morning news market. The two-hour show, which combined news, interviews and features, made its debut on January 6, 1975, but it failed to entice viewers away from the entrenched NBC News program Today and, on October 31, 1975, it folded.
The following month, Mr. JENNINGS was reassigned overseas with the title of chief foreign correspondent. He was promoted to foreign news anchorman of ABC's nightly evening newscast, retitled World News Tonight, in July, 1978. By then a seasoned and confident journalist, he perfectly complemented his co-anchors -- Frank Reynolds, reporting from Washington, and Max Robinson, who was based in Chicago -- in the innovative triple-anchor format that Roone Arledge, the president of ABC News, had invented in an attempt to make the network's news division more competitive with CBS and NBC.
Based in London, Mr. JENNINGS not only anchored the foreign news segment of the broadcast but also served as ABC's chief foreign correspondent.
In this capacity, Mr. JENNINGS lobbied hard for complicated international stories he thought deserved exposure in the nightly news lineup and, in the eyes of the network brass, greatly enhanced the quality of the network's global coverage. Because he was stationed overseas, he often arrived at events, such as the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981, long before his American counterparts. Moreover, his constant exposure to the European perspective insulated him from the narrow and often distorted viewpoint that is an inevitable result of so-called "pack journalism," in which reporters rely largely on the same sources for their information.
As Ms. Matusow pointed out, Mr. JENNINGS's analysis of Mr. Sadat's assassination and its political consequences was "far more penetrating" than those offered by commentators less familiar with the Middle East. He was one of the few reporters to detect in the usually demonstrative Egyptians' subdued reaction to Mr. Sadat's death a sign of the former president's estrangement from his fellow countrymen.
His long-standing interest in Middle Eastern affairs prompted him to interview Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, then a relatively obscure Iranian cleric living in exile in France, several months before he returned to his homeland in triumph after the overthrow of the shah of Iran. The correspondent reported on those world-shaking events from the scene early in 1979 and returned to Tehran the following November, when militant supporters of the ayatollah seized control of the U.S. embassy there, taking some 60 hostages.
Mr. JENNINGS was also on hand for the hostages' release in Frankfurt, West Germany, on January 20, 1981, filing 11 special reports in addition to performing his usual anchor chores. During his tenure as the foreign-desk anchorman for World News Tonight, Mr. JENNINGS also personally covered, among other events, the Falkland Islands war between Britain and Argentina and the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, both in 1982, and Pope John Paul II's historic visit to Poland, in June, 1983. His penchant for reporting the most important international stories himself annoyed some ABC field correspondents, who resented the repeated invasions of their turf by what they called "Jennings's Flying Circus."
Still, nobody could deny that he was a tireless and relentless reporter. "I had enormous respect for him, especially for the way he covered the Middle East," said Canadian journalist Michael MacLEAR, himself no slouch as a foreign correspondent, especially during the Vietnam war. "I remember him talking about the competitiveness of the news and how only about one out of four reports you prepared got used in the newscast because of the pressure of the day's events. But he said each one has to be approached and worked on as if it will be the one that is going to be used. I think that is the approach that we all took but I admired him because he had a very established position with a major network and he still went at it as if it were his first day on the job."
Mr. JENNINGS began a new phase in his career in September, 1983, when he succeeded Frank Reynolds as anchor of a revamped nightly newscast and also became senior editor for the program. He was now competing head-on with CBS's Dan Rather and NBC's Tom Brokaw.
"For sheer professionalism, he was way out in front," said Mr. MacLEAR. " His sense of timing -- you can't even begin to compare him with Brokaw and Rather because he is so much better." His "sheer on-camera ability," as well as his "100-per-cent credentials as a foreign correspondent" are what guaranteed his longevity as an anchor, according to Mr. MacLEAR. "If he hadn't had those qualities, and being a Canadian, he might not have lasted as long."
Mr. JENNINGS outlasted his rivals Tom Brokaw (who retired in December, 2004) and Dan Rather (who stepped down in March this year). He wrote two books with Todd Brewster. The Century, a bestseller that provided a breezily informative, if egocentrically American, perspective on key events, accompanied a multipart documentary series that was hosted by Mr. JENNINGS. The duo also produced a much more personal book about values, called In Search of America, which also had a television series.
Mr. JENNINGS appeared frail in the late spring of this year. He was said to be suffering from a cold and then an upper respiratory ailment when he didn't travel to Rome to anchor ABC's coverage of the death of Pope John Paul II early in April. Then, on April 5, ABC News announced that Mr. JENNINGS had been diagnosed with lung cancer. Network president David Westin promised Mr. JENNINGS would continue to anchor World News Tonight between chemotherapy treatments "to the extent he can do so comfortably." Looking weak and speaking in a raspy voice, Mr. JENNINGS himself appeared at the end of the newscast that night to break the news to viewers.
Peter Charles JENNINGS was born in Toronto on July 29, 1938. He died of lung cancer on August 7. He was 67. He is survived by his wife, Kayce FREED, his children Elizabeth and Christopher, his sister Sarah and three former wives.

I Remember -- Peter JENNINGS
By Peter DESBARATS, Saturday, August 13, 2005, Page S11
Most of the public recollections of Peter JENNINGS have cited his generosity, particularly when it came to other journalists. I experienced an outstanding example of this.
It was near the end of the 1980s. I had been the journalism dean at the University of Western Ontario since 1981. A large part of this job, and similar positions in academia, was raising money. Someone came up with a brilliant idea -- we would gather together a dozen of the top Canadian journalists from home and abroad for a public celebration of their talent. It would be truly a "Gathering of the Giants."
From the outset it was evident that we would need the support of the "giant of giants," Peter JENNINGS. Clearly, he had achieved that status among Canadian journalists working in Canada, in the United States and elsewhere. He was in a class by himself.
So I flew to New York to have lunch with him. This had been surprisingly easy to arrange, despite the fact that our paths had not previously crossed. There is a camaraderie among journalists that I had experienced on assignment in many countries and Peter was a prime example of this.
We enjoyed an unpretentious lunch in the ABC network's cafeteria and chatted about mutual Friends before I made my pitch. After a minimum of discussion he agreed to be one of our giants. The rest soon followed: the two other Peters, MANSBRIDGE and GZOWSKI the two Barbaras, FRUM and AMIEL; Morley Safer from 60 Minutes, Lloyd ROBERSTON of CTV, Allan FOTHERINGHAM, Sydney Gruson of The New York Times, Jeffrey SIMPSON of The Globe and Mail, Henry CHAMP of CTV, Robert McNeil of PBS and Richard GWYN of the Toronto Star, for a total of 13.
Months later, after a tremendous amount of work by my committee in Toronto, we were approaching the big night at Toronto's Metro Convention Centre. There had been a few minor bumps along the way, but Peter JENNINGS was still on board. By this time I had learned to appreciate how unusual this was.
Peter gave me to understand that ABC wasn't particularly keen on anything that highlighted his Canadian background and citizenship. I also got the impression that his prominent role in this fundraiser was unusual and probably would not have been undertaken for a journalism school in the United States.
In the final weeks I began to worry about some major news event conflicting with our gathering and taking Peter to some far-flung but newsworthy corner of the world. He couldn't guarantee that this wouldn't happen but simply repeated that he would make every effort to attend.
My nightmare came true when the destruction of the Berlin Wall in November, 1989, unleashed a whole series of European events. I can't remember exactly which one conflicted with our gathering, only that it was significant enough to make me almost abandon hope. But Peter arrived on schedule in a private plane from New York, stopping for our event in Toronto before flying immediately that night to some European capital or other.
I watched him on the screen the following night in amazement, not so much for his profound professionalism but for his amazing Friendship and generosity.
But there's more. After our Oscar-type celebration of the 13 giants on the convention centre's main stage -- complete with video highlights of their careers and mini-interviews by 13 awestruck journalism students -- and after a lavish buffet supper ("food from the news capitals of the world"), the entertainment consisted of a mock newscast anchored by Peter JENNINGS, Lloyd ROBERTSON and Peter MANSBRIDGE. The rest of the 13 were in a nearby studio supposedly reporting from Washington, London, Moscow and other impressive datelines.
Peter gave my script for this tomfoolery his full attention, reading it carefully beforehand, underlining certain parts and rehearsing under his breath. The other two anchors quickly rose to the challenge, providing our audience with a hilarious display of competitive news delivery as they worked shamelessly to milk laughs from their appreciative audience.
The only restriction placed by Peter on this unique performance was that no one in the control room would make an unauthorized pirate tape of it. And as far as I know, no one did, because I'm sure it would have turned up by now.
We raised about $80,000 for the journalism school that night and I always felt that I had never thanked him properly. So thanks, Peter. You stood for everything that was thoughtful, professional and generous about journalism at its best.
Peter DESBARATS, a former Global television anchor, was dean of the graduate journalism program at the University of Western Ontario from 1981 to 1996.

BIGELOW, Wilfred Gordon
After a life lived with caring, intellectual curiosity and a profound sense of spirituality, Bill died peacefully in Toronto on Easter Sunday 2005. Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Bill was the son of Dr. Wilfred BIGELOW, founder of the first medical clinic in Canada, and Grace GORDON, nurse and midwife. He was raised in an environment that encouraged a love of family, nature, music and education. Bill attended Brandon College in the early 1930's and graduated from medicine at the University of Toronto in 1938. Following this, he served overseas as a Captain in the Royal Canadian Medical Army Corps, performing battle surgery on the frontlines. Returning home from the war, he furthered his studies at John Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland specializing in cardiac surgery. His experiences in the war with amputations due to frostbite led him to explore the principle of hypothermia. He felt strongly that to make progress in cardiac surgery, surgeons needed to open the heart and operate directly. Building on his wartime experiences, he theorized that if you could cool the heart, you could reduce oxygen requirements, interrupt circulation and open the heart. In 1947, Bill returned to Toronto, and established a hypothermia research unit at The Banting Institute. There, he performed the world's first open heart surgery on a dog using the principal of hypothermia, paving the way for its use on humans. At his lab, Dr. BIGELOW and his colleagues Dr. John CALLAGHAN and Dr. John HOPPS also developed the cardiac pacemaker. Bill was recognized internationally as the father of Canadian heart surgery. He received the Gairdner Foundation Award in 1959, was inducted into the Canadian Medical Association's Hall of Fame in 1997 and into the Order of Canada in 1981. Bill published numerous medical articles in scientific journals, educated aspiring cardiac surgeons from around the world, and authored two books, Cold Hearts and Mysterious Heparin. Along with his passion for medicine, Bill will be remembered for his love of the outdoors and his work on environmental causes. He served as a director of the Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy of Canada. He spent many happy hours on the islands of Georgian Bay, and at his farm in Collingwood with his beloved family, horses and dogs. He was an avid bird watcher who went on frequent field trips with his longtime friend Dr. Bruce CHARLES. In his latter years, he enjoyed many happy hours with his golf buddies at the Toronto Hunt Club. First and foremost, Bill was a family man and a devoted and loyal friend to many. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of almost 60 years, Ruth JENNINGS, who attracted his attention as a caring and efficient operating nurse at Toronto General Hospital. He was also predeceased by his infant brother Jack, and his sisters Mary GRANT (Millard,) and Toody McKINNON (Keith.) He is survived by his brother Dr. Dan BIGELOW and his wife Dr. Sonia SACEDA. As a loving father and grandfather, Bill led by example, demonstrating the importance of loyalty and the power of positive thinking and perseverance. He will be deeply missed by his daughter Pixie Bigelow CURRIE (Ian) of Toronto, and sons, John (Ellie) of Honolulu, Hawaii, Dan (Blanche) of Petersfield, Manitoba, and Bill of Toronto. He is remembered with affection by his grandchildren Scott CURRIE (Sarah,) Susanne COUTTS (Rob), Mathew BIGELOW, and Angela BEATTON (Don) and his nieces, nephews and their families. Bill adored children and was delighted with the birth of his three great-grandchildren, Sophie and Chloe COUTTS and Stella CURRIE. The family recognizes with gratitude his caregivers Alma ABLONA, Beth LARA and Helen ABLONA and the staff of Belmont House. The funeral and interment will be private.

Peter JENNINGS, 67: Canadian face of U.S. television
Delivered nightly news for decades
Lung cancer claims veteran
By David BAUDER, Associated Press
New York -- Peter JENNINGS, the suave, Toronto-born broadcaster who delivered the news to Americans each night in five separate decades, died yesterday. He was 67.
JENNINGS, who announced in April that he had lung cancer, died at his New York home, ABC News President David Westin said late last night.
"Peter has been our colleague, our friend, and our leader in so many ways.
"None of us will be the same without him," Westin said.
With Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather, JENNINGS was part of a triumvirate that dominated network news for more than two decades, through the birth of cable news and the Internet.
His smooth delivery and years of international reporting experience made JENNINGS particularly popular among urban dwellers.
JENNINGS was the face of ABC News whenever a big story broke. He logged more than 60 hours on the air during the week of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, offering a soothing sense of continuity during a troubled time.
"There are a lot of people who think our job is to reassure the public every night that their home, their community and their nation is safe," he told author Jeff Alan.
"I don't subscribe to that at all. I subscribe to leaving people with essentially -- sorry it's a cliché -- a rough draft of history. Some days it's reassuring, some days it's absolutely destructive."
JENNINGS' announcement four months ago that he would begin treatment for lung cancer came as a shock.
"I will continue to do the broadcast," he said, his voice husky, in a taped message that night. "On good days, my voice will not always be like this."
But although JENNINGS occasionally came to the office between chemotherapy treatments, he never again appeared on the air.
"He knew that it was an uphill struggle. But he faced it with realism, courage, and a firm hope that he would be one of the fortunate ones," Westin said. "In the end, he was not."
Broadcasting was the family business for JENNINGS, who was born in Toronto. His father, Charles JENNINGS, was the first person to anchor a nightly national news program in Canada and later became head of the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.'s news division. A picture of his father was displayed prominently in JENNINGS' office off ABC's newsroom.
Charles JENNINGS' son had a Saturday morning radio show in Ottawa at age 9. JENNINGS never completed high school or college, and began his career as a news reporter at an Ontario radio station in Brockville. He quickly earned an anchor job at CTV.
Sent south to cover the Democratic national convention in 1964, the handsome, dashing correspondent was noticed by ABC's news president. JENNINGS was offered a reporting job and left Canada for New York.
As the third-place news network, ABC figured its only chance was to go after young viewers.
JENNINGS was picked to anchor the evening news and debuted on February 1, 1965. He was 26.
"It was a little ridiculous when you think about it," JENNINGS told author Barbara Matusow. "A 26-year-old trying to compete with Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley. I was simply unqualified."
Critics savaged him as a pretty face unfit for the promotion. Using the Canadian pronunciations for some words and once misidentifying the Marine Corps' anthem as "Anchors Aweigh" didn't help his reputation. The experiment ended three years later.
He later described the humbling experience as an opportunity, "because I was obliged to figure out who I was and what I really wanted to be."
Assigned as a foreign correspondent, JENNINGS thrived. He established an ABC News bureau in Beirut, and became an expert on the Middle East. He won a Peabody Award for a 1974 profile of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.
On the scene at the Munich Olympics in 1972, JENNINGS was perfectly placed to cover the hostage-taking of Israeli athletes by an Arab terrorist group. He and a crew hid in the athletes' quarters for a close-in view of the drama.
JENNINGS returned to the evening news a decade after his unceremonious departure. In 1978, ABC renamed its broadcast World News Tonight, and instituted a three-person anchor team: Frank Reynolds based in Washington, Max Robinson from Chicago and JENNINGS, by then ABC's chief foreign correspondent, from London.
Following Reynolds' death from cancer, ABC abandoned the multi-anchor format and JENNINGS became sole anchor on September 5, 1983.
Starting in 1986, JENNINGS began a decade on top of the ratings. His international experience served him well explaining stories like the collapse of communism, the first Gulf War and the terrorist bombing of an airplane over Lockerbie, Scotland. He took pride that World News Tonight, as its name suggested, took a more worldly view than its rivals. Fans responded to his smart, controlled style.
"When it's clearly an emotional experience for the audience, the anchor should not add his or her emotional layers," JENNINGS said in an interview with the Star Tribune in Minneapolis.
Two-thirds of local broadcasters responding to a 1993 survey by Broadcasting and Cable magazine said JENNINGS was the best network news anchor.
Washington Journalism Review named him anchor of the year three straight years.
