Alice MILNES
By Arthur Herbert MILNES, Monday, June 6, 2005, Page A16
Grandmother, mother, friend. Born August 26, 1906, in Toronto. Died May 11 in Pickering, Ontario, of old age, aged 98.
'Oh that's good."
Those were my 92-year-old Grandmother's words on Christmas Eve of 1999. She'd just taken a long drink of rye -- topped with a splash of soda water -- we'd handed her to celebrate the season. After that first sip, she looked out over my kitchen at three of her nine grandchildren, tipped her glass and tossed back another.
Nanny was born in Toronto in 1906 and spent almost all of her life living near the thoroughfare called The Danforth in Toronto. She vowed she'd never burden her children by moving in with them in old age. (Her mother-in-law had done that and it was an experience she said she wouldn't revisit on anyone.) She kept her vow, living on her own in her tidy apartment until old age forced her into a long-term care facility at age 96.
She and Grampa spent many years on Rhodes Avenue and her neighbours, Nel and Jack ARBUCKLE, became so close they even chose to have cottages side by side. In later years, Nel and Jack's daughter, Marge, and her husband, John, did so much to help allow Nanny to keep visiting her cottage, with countless gestures that personified Friendship.
While she never went past primary school, she read constantly throughout her life -- how she loved her mysteries -- and it was a matter of pride for her that all three of her children Bill, Joan and Herb Jr. -- became educators.
Nanny and Grampa -- Herbert MILNES, my grandfather, who died in 1983 -- had a cottage near Bluewater Beach, north of Toronto. As a child, I'd spend hours playing cards with her there and she'd tell me story after story of life in Toronto during days gone by. My favourite? Her account of the Royal Visit of 1939. I never got tired of hearing about the crowds and the flags and her description of the Queen; I must have heard a thousand times: "She was so beautiful, Art." In 1989, I happened to be working at Queen's Park when that beautiful Queen -- by now the beloved Queen Mum -- returned to Toronto to mark the 50th anniversary of that historic visit. I left my office and watched the Queen Mum from the crowd. When I returned home that night, the first thing I did was call to tell my grandmother where I'd gone and whom I'd seen.
"You know that flag," she said to me out of the blue one day in the late 1980s, while I was raising Canada's Maple Leaf for her at the cottage, "Your Grandfather always put it up but we used to call it 'Pearson's dish-rag.' "
That comment aside, I never heard her express many political views but I knew she followed the news and politics faithfully. Last summer we asked former Prime Minister Brian MULRONEY if he'd help us mark our matriarch's birthday. He did just that, sending Nanny a handwritten letter.
"I learned that you will be turning 98 this weekend," Mr. MULRONEY wrote. "What a marvellous milestone in life and Mila joins me in conveying our warmest congratulations and best wishes for many more. Have a rye and soda on me!"
She broke into a big smile as she sat surrounded by family as that letter was read to her.
"Who did you say that was from?" she asked.
And she just nodded and grinned in a way I'd never seen before. Above all else, my Nanny loved being the centre of attention and Mr. MULRONEY's letter was icing on the cake. I detected from her the belief that all former prime ministers should be honouring her. Why wouldn't they, she seemed to say by her grin.
She was Alice MILNES -- a feisty yet gentle Iron Lady -- and she knew it.
Arthur MILNES is the grand_son of Alice MILNES.

Carl BEAM, Artist 1943-2005
Outspoken and fearless Ojibway master of collage left a body of work that did justice to the complexities of aboriginal identity in Canada. He made photography a staple of his art and infused it with his own experiences
By Sarah MILROY, Saturday, August 20, 2005, Page S11
A few weeks ago, when Carl BEAM's son-in-law Mark LAROCHELLE stood in the M'chigeeng community centre on Manitoulin Island to eulogize his father-in-law, he had a simple message: "I only had the opportunity to know Carl for seven years, but one of the things that I learned from him was to never be afraid to say what needed to be said."
Outspoken, articulate, passionate, defiant and occasionally cantankerous, Mr. BEAM leaves a huge hole in the Canadian cultural landscape. An Ojibway artist who made a lot of smoke and fire with his art and his statements about the Canadian art scene, he helped to create space for himself and for other first nations artists across the country, creating a body of work that did justice to the complexities of aboriginal identity in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Honoured this year with a Governor-General's Award for the Visual Arts, Mr. BEAM had been the subject of many exhibitions both at home and abroad, and his work resides in the collections of virtually every museum of scale in Canada.
Carl BEAM ended up in M'chigeeng, and he began his life there, too, though in those days it was called West Bay. Born the eldest of nine children, he scarcely knew his white father, Edward COOPER he died as a soldier during the Second World -- but his maternal grandfather, Domenic MIGWANS, took a strong hand in his upbringing. A powerful man in the community, he recognized the young boy's intelligence and drive. "They knew that it would be Carl's destiny to face the white world," says his wife, Ann BEAM (who is also an artist), so they elected to send him to Garnier Residential School in Spanish, Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Huron.
It proved to be both a privilege -- given the education he received (he was a very gifted student) -- and a curse. This forced period of assimilation into white, Christian culture was a dark chapter in his life that he was forever reluctant to discuss.
After this, Mr. BEAM landed a series of labouring jobs in the north, from firefighting to working in the Wawa steel mill. Only in his late 20s did he focus his ambitions on a career in art, attending first the Kootenay School of Art, then the University of Victoria and on to graduate studies at the University of Alberta. Of his decision to turn to art-making, Ann BEAM says: "He used to tell me that he just couldn't hold it off any longer."
Through his education, his world opened up through exposure to the works of contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. He absorbed their photo-transfer techniques and, like them, made found photography a staple of his art. Unlike them, he infused it with autobiography. "He put the personal and family stuff in," says Ann, "so that people could feel the humanness of his [aboriginal] subjects, so that they couldn't be abstracted."
As well, Mr. BEAM learned from the example of aboriginal artists such as the late Fritz Scholder, a Luiseno artist from the American Southwest. "Carl wanted to write his final graduate dissertation on Scholder, but the department said there was not enough material on the artist to make the subject qualify for study," recalls Ann. "That was it for Carl. He was out of there."
During these early years, Mr. BEAM had fathered five children with his first wife, Rejeanne ARCHAMBAULT, but the relationship collapsed. He met Ann in Toronto in 1979. The pair decamped to the American Southwest for a few years and spent a lot of time in the Pueblo community, developing what would be a lifelong interest in pottery. Later, they wound up in Peterborough, Ontario, where from 1983 to 1992 Mr. BEAM began to participate in the Canadian museum scene. His involvement in a number of seminal shows cemented his growing reputation: Altered Egos at Thunder Bay National Exhibition Centre and Centre for Indian Art (1984) Cross-Cultural Views at the National Gallery of Canada (a pioneering 1986 exhibition themed on resistance that combined non-native artists such as Hans Haacke and Jamelie Hassan with native artists such as Jane Ash Poitras and Robert Houle); Beyond History at the Vancouver Art Gallery (1989); Indigena at the Canadian Museum of Civilization (1992); and Land, Spirit, Power (also at the National Gallery, in 1992).
The National Gallery's acquisition of his painting The North American Iceberg in 1986 was an important moment for Mr. BEAM, signifying, for him, his successful penetration of hostile cultural territory previously occupied by only white artists. "It was not a donation. It was a purchase," remembers Ann, "and that made all the difference." The painting posited a rebuttal to a concurrent exhibition of Italian and German contemporary art at the Art Gallery of Ontario named the European Iceberg.
Says Diana NEMIROFF, then the National Gallery of Canada's curator of contemporary art and now the director of Carleton University Art Gallery: "Carl has a sense of humour, but he also had the sharp, critical sense that there was another Iceberg buried that we weren't paying attention to, and it involved battles, conquest, uneasy cohabitation." The acquisition represented a breakthrough. Says Ms. NEMIROFF: "It signalled the gallery's intention to look seriously at a whole generation of native artists who were dealing with aboriginal cultural issues in an absolutely contemporary way."
The BEAMs lived in Peterborough until their return to Manitoulin Island in 1992, settling finally into an adobe house they built with their own hands.
The art Mr. BEAM made along the way constitutes one of the great cultural documents of our changing political landscape. There's his Columbus Suite (1989-1990), a group of 12 etchings that responded to the quincentennial of the landing of the explorer on North American soil. (The series is currently being exhibited in a small, honorary exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.)
On Mr. BEAM's love of visual collage, Ms. NEMIROFF says: "Collage allowed him to make subjective leaps between bodies of knowledge that had always been kept separate."
Thus, he gives us the chiselled raptor-like profile of Abraham Lincoln above a row of black ravens (symbols of transformation). Sitting Bull and Einstein are pictured stacked atop one another. Various Ways to Travel in North America couples a space rocket preparing for liftoff with a scene of aboriginal ritual dance two views of celestial travel, joined at the seam.
A subsequent series, also created in response to the quincentennial, was Burying the Ruler. In it, you see the artist holding the simple measuring instrument, then the same instrument buried from view.
"The reference was to the Renaissance idea of man as the measure of all things," says first nations artist and curator Gerald McMASTER, who frequently worked with Mr. BEAM over the years. By man, of course, they meant European man. "Indians were invented in 1492," Mr. McMASTER continues. "Carl made work to contest that European view," commenting on the environmental and humanitarian implications of such rigid modes of rational thought. Instead of the straight ruler, Mr. BEAM proposed the triangle and the circle.
A later series, Great Whale of Our Being (2002), imagined the whale as a metaphor for all mankind in our moment of ecological peril, presenting the magnificent creature dismembered and violated, and also whole, free and powerfully alive in its natural element. Before his death, says Ann, he was working on a series called Crossroads, riffing on the Robert Johnson blues classic as a way of considering his own hybrid place between cultures.
It was this sort of complexity that fuelled his art. Powerfully particular in his cultural point of view as an aboriginal, Carl BEAM railed against the racial ghettoization of his art. "My work is not made for Indian people, but for thinking people," he wrote. "In the global and evolutionary scheme, the difference between people is negligible."
Carl Edward Migwans BEAM was born in West Bay, Ontario, on May 24, 1943. He died in M'chigeeng (formerly West Bay) on July 30, 2005, of complications arising from diabetes. He was 62.
He is survived by his wife, Ann, and by their daughter Anong and by four children from a previous marriage: Clinton, Laila, Carl Jr. and Jennifer. He also leaves his mother, Barbara Migwans BEAM, and siblings Lina, Leonard, Tom, Linda, Joan, Norma, Theresa, Loretta, and Marjorie, plus 11 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter Veronica.
A memorial service will be held at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, 25 Caroline St. N., Waterloo, Ontario, on September 18, at 2 p.m.
From November 28 to January 29, 2006, the Carlton University Art Gallery will mount a Carl BEAM retrospective.

Milton HARRIS, Chief Executive Officer and Philanthropist: 1927-2005
son of a scrap-metal dealer, he used his genius for business to build a $600-million company, writes Sandra MARTIN. A family man who resolved to keep his children out of the family business for the sake of the family, he supported such varied causes as primate research and the hunt for war criminals
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, April 2, 2005, Page S9
Milt HARRIS's business acumen was legendary, but it was only a small part of the man. A self-made entrepreneur who took his family's scrap-metal business and turned it into a hugely successful reinforced-steel business, he was also a crusader, a civil libertarian, and a quiet but generous philanthropist to a range of causes, including the Young Men's Christian Association, opera, First Nations, and especially primate research and human cognitive evolution.
Short, wiry and athletic, Mr. HARRIS hated formality and was rarely seen in a shirt and tie. As a young man, he learned to box and to fly a single-engine plane -- until good sense and his wife persuaded him to ground his aircraft. In recent years, he was a committed cyclist, often riding close to 30 kilometres a day through the ravines of Toronto. Although he couldn't read music, he took up the organ a dozen years ago and learned to play toccatas, fugues and sonatas.
Milton HARRIS was born in Detroit in 1927, one of two sons of Sam and Jenny HARRIS. The family moved to London when Milt was a few months old. His childhood was troubled because his mother was sickly and his father tended to favour Milt's brother, Liebert. Fortunately, the young boy had affectionate and supportive aunts and uncles and, instead of being embittered by his upbringing, he developed empathy and compassion for others.
In a eulogy for Mr. HARRIS, his son, David, attributed his father's affinity for the oppressed and dispossessed to those early struggles. "I think that Milt built his life in opposition and reaction to the parenting he received and... this explains... his most prominent character trait: He was a fighter, a go-getter, a man of action."
Mr. HARRIS grew up in the scrap-metal business, which had been in the family since before the turn of the century. At 13, he was driving a truck, and working part-time for his father, his grandfather and his uncle. The business went through good times and bad -- his father lost a fortune during the Depression and made most of it back early in the Second World War.
There was certainly enough money to send Milt to St. George's School and Central Collegiate Institute in London and to Camp Winnebago in Ontario's Muskoka region for at least one summer. That's where Milt met Max MILSTONE in 1943, the year he turned 16. The two boys became lifelong Friends, a connection that was strengthened at the University of Toronto because they both belonged to the Beta Sigma Rho fraternity. "He was the sharpest man I ever knew. He had a mind like a steel trap and he could remember everything," Mr. MILSTONE said this week.
"He was the best friend I ever had," he said. "A friend is somebody who can be truly happy when something good happens to you, and not with any jealousy or competition, but he also felt my pain."
It was also at the University of Toronto that Mr. HARRIS met his wife, Ethel. They knew each other socially, but they really connected one rainy evening in 1948 when they were both studying for exams in the reference library (now the University of Toronto Bookstore on College Street). "Milt walked me home and he told me later that he knew then that he was in love with me," Mrs. HARRIS said this week. They were engaged that September and married a year later, a partnership that lasted more than 55 years. She is credited with expanding his interests in the arts and encouraging his fascination with primates and human evolution.
Milt HARRIS wanted to become a lawyer after graduating with a commerce degree in 1949, but his father suffered a heart attack, and so the young couple moved to London and Mr. HARRIS took over the day-to-day running of the family business. In 1954, he bought out his grandfather or, more accurately, assumed the company's liabilities. By then, he had a new vision for the business. He had bought a load of reinforcing steel, detritus from the construction of the Welland Canal, and realized that he could cut, bend and resell it, rather than throwing it onto the scrap heap. "That was the beginning of the rebar business," said nephew John HARRIS, who has succeeded Milt HARRIS as Chief Executive Officer and chairman of Harris Steel.
Focused and imaginative, Milt HARRIS was able to envisage the future of the steel industry and to take advantage of it to manufacture a product that could be used to reinforce concrete in construction projects. In the mid-1960s, he began branching out into other businesses, including Laurel Steel, and took his company public in 1967. Today, Harris Steel Group is a leading North American steel fabricator and processor with 34 facilities in Canada and the U.S. and annual sales in excess of $600-million.
Harris Steel is not a family business in the usual sense. Unlike many self-made entrepreneurs, Mr. HARRIS discouraged his children (Judith, Naomi and David) from joining the company. There was a lot of business-related conflict within his family over the generations, according to John HARRIS, and he didn't want to inflict that on his own children.
The same stricture seemed to hold for John HARRIS. "He was more than an uncle to me, he was an idol," he said, explaining that his parents had divorced when he was very young and Uncle Milt and Aunt Ethel had stepped into the emotional gap. After John graduated with a degree in philosophy in 1974 from Trent University, he was thinking of taking a year off before going to law school. At a party, his aunt "dragged me over by the ear" to his uncle and said, "Why don't you give Johnny a job for a year."
At the end of his stint, John wanted to stay with the company. "I was working as an ironworker out in the field. The hours were great, I had all the overtime I wanted and huge money." His uncle listened, wrote the name of his biggest competitor on a piece of paper, gave it to his nephew and said: "Phone him. Maybe he'll give you a job, because if you don't go back to school, I'm firing you."
John got the message. He went to University of Toronto for an M.B.A., continued to work for his uncle part-time for two years and went back to the firm in the spring of 1977. He's been there ever since.
When asked why his uncle was so successful at founding and growing a business, John HARRIS said: "It was really a matter of culture." Long before "empowering people" became business buzz words, his uncle always saw beyond the exterior and saw the heart and intelligence workers brought to their jobs. "He treated them like real people, whether they were labourers or truck drivers or rocket scientists and let them try to do their best."
Milt HARRIS had a genius for business. "He just wanted to bring his mind and energy to the game every day," said his nephew, adding that he "had a tremendous mental toughness." He brought that toughness not only to his own business, but also as a director of other companies, including Air Canada and Canadair.
In the early 1980s, he became involved in the Canadian Jewish Congress, serving on its war-crimes committee and as president from 1983 to 1986. After reading None Is Too Many, by Irving Abella and Harold Troper, their landmark exposé of anti-Semitism in Canada, he invited Mr. Abella to speak to the Canadian Jewish Congress. "He was a dynamo -- single-minded, generous, energetic and gutsy," said Mr. Abella. "He knew what he wanted to do and how to do it."
What he wanted was to find war criminals who had found refuge in Canada. "Although he had no relatives that he knew of who had died in the Holocaust and he'd had a pretty comfortable life in Canada, he was angry that Canada had allowed people who have committed such horrific crimes into this country, allowed them to stay and made no pretense at prosecution," said Mr. Abella. "His sense of justice and his sense of the values this country represents were assaulted."
At the time, Jim PETERSON, now Minister of International Trade in Paul MARTIN's cabinet, was parliamentary secretary to then justice minister Jean CHRÉTIEN. Mr. PETERSON worked closely with Mr. HARRIS, arranging for him to meet senior Justice Department officials. "He did as much, or more, as anybody in Canada to advance the cause of bringing war criminals to justice."
In her eulogy, Mrs. HARRIS described her husband as someone who was "never afraid to stand alone for what he believed, never afraid to fight for the underprivileged and the scapegoated or against any violation of human rights." As Canadian Jewish Congress president, for example, he supported the right of Palestinians to a homeland. Later, he campaigned on behalf of Japanese Canadians seeking redress for being interned and having their homes and assets confiscated during the Second World War. "He took on causes that were his and not necessarily the community's," said Mr. Abella, "so he was often fighting solitary battles, but the right ones."
A big supporter of the Liberal Party, he was the campaign manager when Clarence PETERSON (father of former Ontario premier David PETERSON) ran against John ROBARTS in the 1963 Ontario election. In that pre-cellphone era, Mr. HARRIS invented a concept called home centres for election days. The idea was to place election workers away from headquarters in houses close to the polls, recalled Jim PETERSON, Clarence's son. This practice was later adopted by the party on a much wider scale.
Mr. HARRIS never ran for office himself, but he publicly denounced the Liberal Party for its anti-free-trade stand against the U.S. in the 1988 federal election. "He phoned me and said he could not, in principle, support a party that had always supported free trade and wouldn't in these circumstances," said Jim PETERSON. "When we later endorsed free trade, he came back to us," adding: "He was right."
About five years ago, Mr. HARRIS phoned York University president Lorna MARSDEN, an acquaintance from the Liberal Party and their days sitting on the board of Air Canada, and invited her to talk to him about the university's research projects. One of the qualities Dr. MARSDEN always appreciated about Mr. HARRIS was his low-key style. "He had conversations, he didn't lecture you," she said.
Since that telephone conversation, he quietly financed scholarships for francophone students to study at the university's bilingual Glendon campus. He also become heavily involved in funding research into brain development in humans, an outgrowth of his long-time interest in and support of anthropologist Jane Goodall's work with primates.
"His gifts were such involved philanthropy. He wanted to be there and talk to the people," said Ms. MARSDEN. " That's an incredible gift to a faculty member to have somebody who is interested in their research, understands their research and supports it."
The energetic and fit Mr. HARRIS was complaining of a stomach ache before he and his wife headed to their Florida home a month ago. He became progressively sicker and was diagnosed three weeks ago with a rare and aggressive form of abdominal cancer. His family gathered around him, making the last week of his life a very emotional time. He loved his family and he made sure each of them knew it, said Mrs. HARRIS.
Milton HARRIS was born in Detroit on July 26, 1927. He died on March 26 of cancer. He was 77. He is survived by his wife, Ethel, his children Judith, Naomi and David, his nephew John, his cousin Marcia and their families.
