Douglas MARSHALL, Journalist 1937-2005
Toronto editor and writer was a co-founder of the journal Books In Canada and a sounding board for Margaret Atwood, Robert Fulford and Margaret Laurence
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, January 21, 2005 - Page S7
Doug MARSHALL was a writer and editor who cut his teeth in the newspaper business in the 1950s while working on a university paper with the likes of broadcaster Peter GZOWSKI. As an undergraduate at the University of Toronto, Mr. MARSHALL worked on The Varsity with the late Mr. GZOWSKI, who was then the paper's editor, and long-time Globe reporter John GRAY/GREY. Considered one of its star writers, Mr. MARSHALL eventually became editor of the student newspaper in 1958-59 and embarked on his lifelong career in the business.
"He loved the English language," said Lynda HURST, a columnist at the Toronto Star, where Mr. MARSHALL spent 20 years of his career. "He was obsessed with its proper use in newspapers."
After graduation, Mr. MARSHALL headed back to England, where he had spent much of his childhood. Based in London, he worked for several years as a reporter for The Canadian Press. On his return to Canada, he became a staff writer at Maclean's, which was then a monthly magazine. In 1971, he co-founded the monthly review journal Books In Canada with the late Val Clery. It got started after the two men, along with a couple of others, contributed $55 each. With the help of a $250 grant from the Ontario government, they set out to fill a void in the Canadian book world.
Getting the magazine off the ground didn't happen without a few rocky moments. Readers, for instance, didn't see the first issue dated May, 1971, until a month later. When Mr. Clery left less than two years after it started, Mr. MARSHALL took over and was said to have injected his own cultural nationalism into the magazine.
"We weren't out necessarily to take an adversary position but to give attention to Canadian books," he told the Toronto Star in a 1986 interview.
"Our philosophical position was clear, which was to judge Canadian books on the highest possible standards. Good, professionally written reviews create a climate for good literature. I think we provided one of the tools that kept alive the renaissance of Canadian literature, with the result that Canada now has at least a half-dozen world-class writers."
Under Mr. MARSHALL, Books In Canada provided a forum for such authors and critics as Margaret Atwood, Robert Fulford, Margaret Laurence and Pierre BERTON. It also served as a training ground for up-and-coming writers.
"He loved to read," Mr. GRAY/GREY said. "He always had a book shoved into his jacket pocket."
Born not long before the Second World War, Mr. MARSHALL was the eldest of three children to Porte and Marion MARSHALL. His father, a family doctor in Colbourne, Ontario, was in England during the war; his job was to check on the health status of those wishing to immigrate to Canada. After the war, he brought his family to England to join him. Young Douglas later returned to Canada to attend the University of Toronto.
During his university years, his interest in journalism is said to have been sparked after he noticed that the students who most liked to drink happened to be the same ones who worked at the newspaper. "He began life when the newspaper business was a hard-drinking business and maintained the tradition," Mr. GRAY/GREY said.
"There was nothing he liked more than a feisty debate in the pub," said Sandra MARTIN, a Globe and Mail writer who worked with Mr. MARSHALL at Books In Canada.
In the early 1980s, Mr. MARSHALL joined the Toronto Star and remained there until his retirement two years ago. During his five years as the paper's entertainment editor, he is credited for having created the innovative What's On section. Departing from traditional newspaper design, the new section incorporated a magazine style. He later worked as the paper's science and environment editor.
"He could be difficult to work for," said Toronto Star editorial columnist Bob HEPBURN. "It would drive him nuts if he saw typos or mistakes in the paper."
Outside of the newspaper world, Mr. MARSHALL was a founding member of the Crime Writers of Canada and the Periodical Writers Association of Canada, and author of the crime fiction novel A Very Palpable Hit. He was at work on a mystery novel set in England.
Patrick Oliver Douglas MARSHALL was born on November 25, 1937, in Cobourg, Ontario He died of liver disease at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on Wednesday. He was 67. He is survived by his wife, Sarah MURDOCH, and by Barnaby and Benjamin, sons from an earlier marriage to Deborah MARSHALL. Funeral arrangements have not been finalized.

MARSHALL, Douglas
Peacefully, at St. Michael's Hospital, in his 67th year. He leaves his wife, Sarah MURDOCH; his sons Barnaby and Benjamin; his sister, Sally; his dear friend and first wife, Deborah; his daughter-in-law, Carmen DUNJKO; his granddaughter, Emma, and her mother, Colleen DECOURCY; his belatedly discovered British son, Hugh THOMAS, his wife, Natalie, and son, Oliver; the staff of the Duke of York; his many Friends; and his affectionate but demanding cat, Nora. Douglas was a true original -- demanding, difficult, smart, funny, loyal and irascible -- who more than anything enjoyed red wine, good writing and socializing, probably in that order. He grew up in Colborne, Ontario, and attended Highgate School in London and the University of Toronto, where he was the editor of the Varsity in the 58-59 school year. He worked at the London bureau of Canadian Press; Maclean's; as a television Guide columnist at Books in Canada, which he co-founded with Val CLERY; and the Toronto Star, where he remains the longest-surviving Entertainment Editor since Nathan COHEN. He was a founding member of the Crime Writers of Canada and the author of A Very Palpable Hit. A service for Doug will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, January 25, at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West. Donations to the Canadian Liver Foundation.

ALLEN, Robert Benedict
Born September 21, 1911 in Chatham, New Brunswick, died peacefully in Mississauga on April 2, 2005, our beloved husband and father Ben ALLEN, aged 93 and a half years.
Ben is survived by his wife of fifty years, Mary Catherine, nee Shillito, and his two children, James and Laura, his adored grandchild Richard Foy, and his son-in-law Errol Foy.
The son of Robert ALLEN and Catherine Ann McEachern of Chatham and latterly Saskatoon, Ben was the last surviving member of a family of nine. He is also survived by seven nieces and nephews and twenty-three grand nieces and nephews with further descendents. Ben's ancestors first came to Canada in 1772, and his family had extensive connections to the Roman Catholic Church in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and previously in Scotland. His family were proud Jacobites. Two notable relatives were Bishop Angus McEACHERN, the first Bishop of Charlottetown and a pioneer of the Catholic Church in the Maritimes, and Monsignor Benedict MURDOCH, Ben's godfather and for whom he was named, a famous priest, author and Canadian Expeditionary Force Chaplain during World War One.
Ben graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1936 with the highest honours as a Bachelor of Science in Geology. He was also a Professional Engineer. He worked as a geologist until his gradual retirement in his seventies, latterly with Gulf Minerals Canada. He loved the intellectual challenges posed by his chosen profession.
Ben served his country and the cause of Freedom throughout World War Two. As a Captain in the Canadian Army, he commanded soldiers stationed in the fields of Kent during the Battle of Britain. Later, he joined the Royal Navy and spent the latter half of the war as a staff officer in the Admiralty.
Ben ALLEN was known for his kindness and fairness to all, for his unassuming nature, for his natural personal dignity and grace, and for his intellect and culture. He loved animals and children, with a special love for all cats. He loved reading and listening to music, particularly Mozart. He was fascinated by science and by the complexities of military and geopolitical history. He was an Anglophile in the best sense of the word.
Although he was by nature conservative, he firmly believed that the favour of fortune or birth carried with it as many responsibilities as it did privileges. He wholeheartedly despised those who used power and position of any sort to advantage against the less fortunate and believed in justice for all. He hated bullies.
We miss our dear Husband and Dad very much every day. We believe he is in a better place but we will always carry him here in our hearts.
Friends may attend the Requiem Mass held at St. Patrick's Church, 921 Flagship Drive in Mississauga (Tomken between Dundas and Bloor) at 1pm on Wednesday April 6. The service will be followed by interment at the Assumption Cemetery, 6933 Tomken Road in Mississauga (East corner of Tomken and Derry Road). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Oakville Humane Society or to the Alzheimer Society of Peel.
