PEARKES, George Randolph, 1984 -- Died This Day
Monday, May 30, 2005, Page S9
Soldier and politician born on February 26, 1888, at Watford, England.
He began his military career as a bugle boy in the British Army before heading to Canada at the age of 18 because an army career required a private income. He homesteaded at Rocky Mountain House in Alberta and in 1911 joined the Royal North West Mounted Police because "it was the nearest thing in Canada to being a soldier." At the beginning of the First World War, he enlisted in the Canadian Mounted Rifles as a private and won the Victoria Cross for heroic action at Passchendaele. He was wounded five times and mentioned four times in dispatches. He ended the war as a lieutenant-colonel and remained in the army, serving as general staff officer at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario At the start of the Second World War he took command of the 2nd Canadian Infantry Brigade and went overseas. In 1940, he was promoted to major-general and assumed command of the division. He returned home in 1942 to run the Pacific command. In 1945, he retired and was elected to Parliament because "I thought there would be a chance to do something for the boys... I had fought with them and had risen from the ranks with them. I thought 'Now is the time we ought to do something to help them get re-established.' " In 1957, he became defence minister in the Diefenbaker government. In 1960, he was named lieutenant-governor of British Columbia "I really liked being the lieutenant-governor... It was something to be proud of. It appealed to my sense of vanity and my sense of loyalty."

PEARLSTONE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-02-16 published
Esther RAPHAEL
By Robert RAPHAEL, Wednesday, February 16, 2005 - Page A18
Daughter, mother, grandmother, manager. Born November 7, 1911, in Toronto. Died November 14, 2004, of Alzheimer's disease, aged In 1912, a doctor returned to an immigrant home in Toronto to re-examine a one-year-old child. His suspicion was confirmed: Esther PEARLSTONE had polio, mild enough to obviate a wheelchair, but serious enough to impede her mobility for the rest of her life.
Her father, a rabbi, had arrived in Canada alone in 1905 and had saved for five years to bring his family over from Poland. Only Esther was Canadian-born. Two sons would go to university. But Esther went to secretarial school.
In 1929, when she was 17, prospects changed. The Canadian economy fell off a cliff. The Depression created a permanent mind-set in Esther, a morbid fear/certainty that a collapse might recur. She and her brothers rejected the faith of her parents. Rooted in ritual and in European poverty it compounded their marginalization in Canada.
Amid the torpor came romance. Her partner was handsome, slender, Latin, self-educated, and somewhat quixotic. They married in 1938 and with the war there came, at last, work. In 1943 she gave birth to a son after three days of labour. The polio was the problem and she was not supposed to survive. Three years later she delivered a second son. Her husband joined the army and but then was diagnosed with diabetes.
After the war, Esther worked as a bookkeeper-office manager, usually in small Jewish-owned companies in Toronto. She raised two children, coped with a broken marriage, and ran the office. She survived for her children's sake, and the ambient humiliation, poverty, and viciousness had to be secondary.
She was practical. If working meant putting a child into a Catholic nursery so be it. If begging from affluent Friends and relatives was called for, it was done. She took in and cared for her widowed father until his death. Esther was organized, disciplined, and outwardly cheerful. In the Fifties the family left the decaying inner city for the suburbs.
Esther worked at the Colonial Tavern, a jazz centre on Yonge St. It was not a place for the naive. She dealt with the staff, with the owners, and with the Louis Armstrongs of this world, whom she saw in terms that were only too human.
Esther was wise, independent, and knowledgeable. She had energy and ideas. She, and others, succeeded in preserving Clanton Park as a recreational area in North York. She also participated in the founding of the New Democratic Party, which she supported all her life.
Esther combined tolerance with insight into the human condition. She once resigned a job rather than accept an impropriety. The owner, ruined, later came by. No one else had been honest with him.
Esther was frugal. I once suggested she switch roles with the Minister of Finance. He could mismanage her income of $12,000. and she would balance his budget of billions. Widowed and retired, the children grown, Esther took careful stock of her life. She bought a small condo in Florida where she spent 10 happy winters. Queried about a male friend's place close by, she replied that she had never been there. "What would people think?"
She returned permanently to Toronto complaining of slight memory loss. As the Alzheimer's developed, her residence rapidly became a prison, her body a cell, her life an endless frustration. "Please take me home. I promise to be good," she would repeat. The descent was divisive, long, slow, unforgiving, brutal. Much comfort was provided by her second son.
Last spring, we were advised that the end was nigh and travelled to Toronto, prayer-book in hand. She rallied for six months. But in November, Esther died.
Robert is Esther's son.

PEARSON
In memory of Tim PEARSON, January 11, 2001.
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried,
If love alone would have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place,
No one can ever fill.
Some may think you are forgotten,
On earth you are no more,
But in my memory you are with me,
As you always were before.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
A part of me went with you,
The day the Angels took you home.
Your memories are for keeps,
With which I never part,
God has you safely in his keeping,
But I will have you forever in my heart.
Loved and missed as always, Annette.

STAFFORD fought for the little guy
By Eric BUNNELL, Special to The Free Press
Saint Thomas -- Harold STAFFORD was remembered yesterday as a passionate advocate for the little guy, a benefactor who hid behind bluster, and a politician whose strong principals may have cost him a seat at the cabinet table. STAFFORD, a colourful and often controversial former Saint Thomas lawyer, died yesterday at his home at 83.
His was a life that his friend Bill JOHNSON, a fellow lawyer and Liberal, said yesterday may be impossible to sum up.
"He was such an intrinsically unique character that there are no parallels. There was only one mould and I think they broke it when they made Harold," he said.
"He would have been 84 on April 20. But Harold was like the Mississippi. You just expected him to continue to roll on."
Tributes yesterday came from as far away as Florida, including fellow former member of Parliament Eugene WHELAN, a prominent former agriculture minister.
"He served his country in many ways. Some people disagreed with him but to those of us who knew him, he was a darn good Canadian."
A native of New Brunswick, STAFFORD was introduced to Saint Thomas and his future wife, Betty during the Second World War. He came to the city as an air force sergeant who taught Commonwealth air crew.
Educated at the University of New Brunswick and the London School of Economics, STAFFORD was called to the bar in 1953 in Brantford and opened a Saint Thomas practice in 1955.
JOHNSON was a political science student studying Liberal fortunes in Elgin when he joined a candidate search in the riding and met STAFFORD, whom he subsequently recommended to the party.
JOHNSON, who later articled under STAFFORD, said there were two sides to the man -- gruff in public, but huge-hearted in private.
"He was a guy with a heart as big as the world. No one knows the good works he did, because of his bluff, curmudgeonly behaviour," he said.
He recalled STAFFORD once defended a 12-year-old boy hauled before the court on a charge of stealing a bicycle.
"His parents were as poor as church mice and this kid didn't have much chance of having anything. Harold not only defended the young man, but he went and bought him a bike."
JOHNSON said STAFFORD "had very strong principles and he would not vary from them."
STAFFORD's dislike of Pierre TRUDEAU was no secret, yet when the former Liberal prime minister died, STAFFORD was gracious in his tribute.
Driven to defend his clients, STAFFORD's principles also may have cost him his law practice.
He was forced in 2000 to resign from the bar as a condition of the Crown withdrawing a charge of obstruction of justice, arising from an allegation STAFFORD tried to influence a witness.
The allegation was never proved and STAFFORD continued to work as a paralegal.
After two failed bids, STAFFORD was elected Elgin member of Parliament in 1965 under then prime minister Lester PEARSON.
He retired from active politics following his 1972 defeat by Tory John WISE but maintained his interest in politics.
STAFFORD's hours and his late-night phone calls were the stuff of local legend.
JOHNSON recalled one judge giving weight to a client's alibi when the man testified he was in STAFFORD's office at 1 a.m.
WHELAN also remembered STAFFORD's ability to work long hours, as did former city lawyer Marietta ROBERTS, a former member of provincial parliament and now a judge.
"Harold had a brilliant mind and he was a very bright man," WHELAN said. "He'd stay up and work until two o'clock in the morning on cases or the work he had to do for Parliament. He had the stamina of four or five people."
Said Roberts of STAFFORD: "He lived life to the fullest and he gave his time and energy to the community for a number of years."
"Mind you," she added, "it might be 3 a.m."
Visitation hours for STAFFORD at Williams Funeral Home in St. Thomas are tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The funeral service is Friday at Knox Presbyterian Church at 1 p.m.

PEARSON, W.B., C.M., D.F.C., M.A., D.Sc. (Oxon.,) F.R.S.C.,
Died peacefully at home in Ariss, Ontario on Wednesday, February 23, 2005. Born on July 1, 1921, he emigrated to Canada with his parents in 1927. He was educated at Kingston Consolidated School in New Brunswick, at Christ's Hospital, United Kingdom and at Oxford University where he obtained first class honours in chemistry and completed his studies as a D. Phil. student with William Hume-Rothery, F.R.S., the legendary alloy pioneer. He served in World War 2 as a pilot on Ferry and Transport Commands of the Royal Air Force. Bill loved activity, hated ambition and committee meetings; thus he was the "creator of beautiful gardens, builder of many buildings, and a landowner who felt compelled to produce food". Bill was the author of several books and many scientific papers on low-temperature physics, physical metallography, Fermi surface, the chemistry of semi-conductors and crystallography while working at the National Research Council, Ottawa, and the University of Waterloo as Dean of Science and Professor of Physics and of Chemistry. In addition, he edited 26 volumes of Structure Reports for the International Union of Crystallography. What pleased him greatly in a lifetime of ignored opportunities due to pressures of current interests, was the award of an honorary D.Sc. from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1984 based on his previous military capability and on his very visible and active participation in the Canadian Metals Physics Conferences held at R.M.C. since their inception in 1952; 1952-1969 Research Scientist, National Research Council of Canada; 1969-1984 University of Waterloo
Dean of Science and Professor of Chemistry and Physics; Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Hon. D.Sc. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and held "Hume-Rothery Awards" from The Metallurgical Society of the A.I.M.E. and from the Institute of Metals (London). He was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 1996. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Ellen Mary (PIPE;) son, Cedric, daughter Cecily (Billy LOPER) and their mother, Lois Jeannette PEARSON (Ottawa;) sisters Jean STEWARD/STEWART/STUART (Corpus Christi, Texas) and Christine GARNET (Ottawa.) Respecting Bill's wishes, there will be no formal funeral service; cremation has taken place. Friends will be invited to share Bill stories in May or June when the weather is more clement.

Royce FRITH, Lawyer, Politician, Diplomat 1923-2005
As canny as he was charming, he never seriously ran for office and instead horse-traded his way into the Senate before being sent to London as High Commissioner, writes Sandra MARTIN. An enthusiastic amateur thespian, he above all relished the drama of the 1995 turbot wars against Spanish fishermen
Saturday, March 26, 2005, Page S9
Tall, patrician, and impeccably dressed, Royce FRITH was a natural communicator who moved through life with charm and grace. A lawyer by training, a Liberal by avocation, and a performer by instinct, he had the potential to be either chief justice of the Supreme Court or prime minister. That he was neither was a mystery to many, but the most likely explanation was fourfold: He was intensely private; his many talents, which included acting and singing, tempted him to enjoy life in the broadest sense; he needed to make a living; and, although he relished influence, he wasn't hungry enough to seek real power.
Mr. FRITH suffered two great tragedies in his life -- the breakdown of his marriage followed by his estranged wife's premature death in 1976, and the death four years later of his son Greg from malignant melanoma at age 25 -- but he kept his anguish to himself and never really spoke about these losses even with his closest Friends. He maintained the same strict privacy in the last few years about his own struggle with cancer. Even many of his closest Friends did not know the extent of his illness.
He served his country as a member of the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, as a Senator during the Trudeau and Mulroney eras, and perhaps most famously as the High Commissioner to England and Northern Ireland who saved Canada House and who rallied British fishermen to the Canadian cause during the "turbot war" with the Spanish in the mid-1990s.
Earlier this week, senators from all sides of the Upper Chamber rose to pay tribute to Mr. FRITH. Liberal Joyce FAIRBURN noted that he had "cut a swath through this place with a potent mix of intellect, talent, humour, stubbornness, skill and commitment that challenged the rest of us to think and act well beyond the boundaries of this chamber." Conservative Lowell MURRAY, who had often "crossed swords" with Mr. FRITH, especially during the 1990 G.S.T. filibuster, praised him as "a model of bilingualism," and an "enjoyable, engaging and interesting companion and a great raconteur." Long-time political strategist Dorothy DAVEY, speaking on behalf of herself and her husband, former Senator Keith DAVEY, said, "he brought intelligence and élan to every position he held and joy and warmth to every Friendship he graced and every room he entered,"
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, the only son of George Harry FIRTH and Annie Beatrice ROYCE. He was educated at Lachine High School and transferred to Parkdale Collegiate after the family moved to Toronto in the mid-1930s. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1946 and Osgoode Hall in 1949 and then did a Diplôme d' études supérieures (droit) at the University of Ottawa. By then, he had married Elizabeth DAVISON, a professional singer whom he had met through The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
Back in Toronto, the FRITHs lived in Leaside and Mr. FRITH practised law on his own for nearly two years before joining two colleagues to form the firm of Magwood, Frith and Pocock. He made his political affiliation to the Liberal party early, serving as national treasurer of the Young Liberal Association in 1949. He got involved in local politics by sitting on Leaside town council in 1951 and 1952 and serving as reeve in 1953. He won the nomination as the provincial Liberal candidate for York East in 1955, but lost by more than 7,000 votes to Hollis BECKETT, the Conservative candidate.
He never ran for public office again. Former Senator John NICHOL thinks of Mr. FRITH as a Renaissance man. He speculates that he didn't actively pursue a career in elected politics because "his interests were so broad, in the arts and music, that I don't think he wanted to limit himself to the treadmill existence of an member of Parliament, or worse, a cabinet minister."
Instead he became a strategist and an organizer, becoming president of the Ontario Liberal Association in 1960, a position he held until 1962. By then, he was one of the key members of Cell 13, a group organized by Keith DAVEY, then national director of the Liberal Party, to build up electoral support for Lester PEARSON and his brand of reform liberalism throughout the country after the party's disastrous showings in the 1957 and 1958 federal elections. One of Cell 13's key activities, as described by Christina McCall-Newman in her book Grits, was "travelling show-and tell demonstrations of canvassing, speaking, and advertising methods" for novice candidates, collected under the rubric of the School of Practical Politics. Mr. FRITH, was a key trainer in these "campaign colleges."
Before the 1963 election that gave Mr. PEARSON his first minority government, the perfectly bilingual Mr. FRITH was a practising lawyer, the host of a television program called Telepoll on the newly formed CTV network, and an applicant before the Board of Broadcast Governors for a licence to establish a private radio station in Windsor, close to the border with the United States.
He got the licence, much to the annoyance of Windsor member of Parliament Paul MARTIN, who thought it should go to a local, and four months later relinquished it in favour of his silent partner, media czar Geoffrey STIRLING.
Mr. DAVEY was not pleased at these public rufflings of Liberal party solidarity, which provided John DIEFENBAKER with fuel for his scathing wit. In his 1986 book, The Rainmaker, he wrote: "Though never quite a dilettante, Royce was not prepared to commit totally to anything, least of all a political career." He went on to say that he regarded Mr. FRITH as "a squandered political resource" who might even have been prime minister. "Too often, however, he slid by on his remarkable personality."
Mr. PEARSON did not share that view. One of his first acts as Prime Minister was to establish the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, with Mr. FRITH as one of ten commissioners. He served the Commission faithfully and well, saying at one point in the hearings that: "If one section of the country sees it as consisting of a majority and a minority while the other sees it as an equal partnership, this does not provide a fertile ground for the exchange of culture. Until we can find ways to change these attitudes, the present conflict will continue."
Earlier this week, Keith SPICER, who was appointed Canada's first Commissioner of Official Languages by Pierre TRUDEAU in 1970, paid tribute to Mr. FRITH who served as his legal adviser. "Royce's advice, in those days when language was still a minefield of anger, misunderstanding and prejudice, was fundamental to the success of the Official Languages Act."
As canny as he was charming, Mr. FRITH struck himself an advantageous deal when the Liberals wanted him to be Ontario campaign manager in the late 1970s. Perhaps Mr. FRITH knew how hard it would be to deliver Ontario to the Liberals in the wake of Mr. TRUDEAU's imposition of the War Measures Act and wage and price controls. He was willing to give up his lucrative law practice to serve the party but he asked for, and received, an appointment to the Senate in 1977. He then took on running the Ontario campaign in the 1979 election, the election that saw Mr. TRUDEAU trounced by Joe CLARK's Progressive Conservatives.
In the Senate, Mr. FRITH was an active and gifted debater and served as deputy leader of the government from 1980 to 1984, deputy leader of the Opposition from 1984 to 1991 and leader of the Opposition from 1991. Working in Ottawa gave him the opportunity to spend more time in nearby Perth, his mother's ancestral home in the Ottawa Valley, and to indulge his passion for amateur theatricals, including playing Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. "Quite frankly," said Senator David SMITH, "he was better looking than Rex Harrison and he had a real polish and flair."
He resigned his Senate seat in 1994, five years before mandatory retirement at age 75, to become High Commissioner to London, his final and most triumphant period of public life. He waged two major campaigns. Under his predecessor Fredrik EATON, appointed by Brian MULRONEY, there was a serious danger that the lease on Canada House in its flagship location in Trafalgar Square in London, was going to be allowed to lapse. Mr. FRITH was appalled and did his utmost to point out that losing Canada House was going to be a blow to Canadian tradition and prestige. He also discovered that under the terms of the lease, Canada had to restore the building to its original condition before handing it back to the Crown. Instead of saving money, giving up Canada House was going to cost a great deal. That proved a winning argument in those cost-conscious days.
Former Liberal Cabinet minister Brian Tobin, now a lawyer in the private sector, had trained as a young candidate with Mr. FRITH in one of the many campaign colleges. He appreciated Mr. FRITH's brand of Liberalism. "He understood the private sector very well, but he also had a huge heart and understood that not only did you have to produce wealth in this society, you have to be fair to those who have fewer advantages."
But what really endeared Mr. FRITH to him was the role he played in the turbot wars when Mr. Tobin was federal minister of fisheries. Members of the fishing community in Cornwall started flying Canadian flags because they were upset by the over-fishing that they themselves were seeing by the Spanish and the Portuguese and they sympathized with Canada's position. Mr. FRITH went to visit them to say thank you. "He did a marvellous job," said Mr. Tobin. "He was such an articulate, persuasive personality that he could walk into a community he had never been in before in his life at a time like that and really embody Canada in the most positive sense of the word."
When asked if he had a favourite memory of Mr. FRITH, he said, "I see this big tall guy in a bow tie with chiselled features, big grin, flashing eyes looking for the next big cause, bare knuckles and all, to embrace. And that's Royce."
If Mr. FRITH was disappointed when he was recalled in 1996 to make way for former Cabinet minister Roy MacLaren to succeed him in London, he kept it to himself.
The Vancouver law firm now called Borden Ladner Gervais invited him to join them as a consultant on British and European affairs. The climate was better than in Ottawa and he had Friends there, especially former Senators John Nichol and George Van Roggen. He quickly became the centre of a social circle that revolved around the Vancouver Symphony, the board of Pearson College and the Vancouver Club. "Royce would walk in every day," said David Smith, "looking like he had just come off Jermyn Street, tailored by Savile Row. I never needed to book anything [when I went to Vancouver], all I had to do was go to the Vancouver Club and there he would be looking like a million dollars."
Mr. FRITH's daughter Valerie also moved to Vancouver where she taught for a number of years in the publishing program at Simon Fraser University. He never remarried, although he had many close women Friends, most notably Hillary Haggan in recent years.
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, on November 12, 1923. He died of pneumonia as a complication of malignant myeloma at home in Vancouver on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his daughter Valerie and her family.

Evelyn HORNE, Civil Servant and Volunteer: 1907-2005
Ottawa secretary worked for Mackenzie KING and was acquainted with a succession of prime ministers. From her vantage point at the centre of power, she saw everything and knew everyone
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, May 17, 2005 Page S9
Ottawa -- Everyone came to see Evelyn HORNE to pick her brains on people and policy, including Jean CHRÉTIEN. She spent 30 years at the centre of political power. Starting with Mackenzie KING, Miss HORNE knew five prime ministers in a row, including Louis SSAINTURENT, John DIEFENBAKER, Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU.
From 1941 to 1973, Miss HORNE perched just off centre stage as a perceptive spectator of some of the most tumultuous events in recent Canadian history -- from the anxious years of the Second World War to the new welfare state that came later. Surrounded by statesmen, politicians, governors-general and civil servants, Miss HORNE knew practically all of them, many on a first-name basis.
"She told me that she knew CHRÉTIEN when he was a young pup who came and sat on the corner of her desk and talked politics," said her nephew, Robert PIKE of Ottawa.
Other Ottawa mandarins who valued Miss HORNE for her administrative skills during the '40s and '50s included Prime Minister Paul MARTIN's father, Paul MARTIN Sr., Jack PICKERSGILL and C.D. HOWE.
For all that, Miss HORNE never forgot the years she spent working for Mackenzie KING. Getting that job was a "case of being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people though I would be selling myself short if I didn't admit that I had some native intelligence and was willing to go the second mile into overtime when it was necessary," she said in 1997.
Miss HORNE first attracted Mr. King's attention when, as a provincial civil servant, she was secretary of the committee organizing the Nova Scotia segment of the 1939 visit to Canada of King George Virgin Islands and Queen Elizabeth.
"When Mr. KING asked to meet me during his tour of East Coast defences in the fall of 1940, I knew I was to be interviewed for a job. And what an interview! Presumably, someone had told him that I could write a fairly good letter; he asked me nothing about my work capabilities," said Miss HORNE.
Instead, Mr. KING quizzed her about the architectural features of the room they were sitting in at Nova Scotia's Province House, Canada's oldest seat of government. "[It was] the most perfect example of Adam architecture in North America. He asked me to explain the symbolism of the bas-relief around the fireplace and recount the history behind the life-size portraits of kings and queens that adorned the walls," she said.
Fortunately, Miss HORNE knew all the answers and found herself in Ottawa in January of 1941. "My first reaction was disappointment. I found the city dull and boring -- after Halifax. There was no immediate awareness that there was a war on. And I was very disappointed in [my new] job. I was assigned to do the 'routine correspondence.' "
It was so simple and repetitive, she was "bored to tears. When I could stand it no longer, I complained to the boss -- not Mr. KING, of course, but [to his] principal secretary. I said I wanted to go back home. The work was too easy -- there was no challenge I didn't have enough to do. As a result, I was given the responsibility for the whole of the Prime Minister's correspondence."
That task was not without its lighter moments, Miss HORNE told her niece, Frances PIKE. " One day, she reached an envelope addressed 'To the Biggest Prick in Canada.' There was nothing inside except an unused condom. 'Mr. PICKERSGILL,' she said, 'what do I do with this'? He said, 'Miss HORNE, I'll take care of it. As far as the contents are concerned, you may do with it what you will.'"
Although Miss HORNE rarely saw Mr. KING during the war, the Prime Minister's Office "was an exciting place to be, right at the heart of government, during those increasingly intense years of war. There were so many pressing concerns, and all kinds of people wrote to the Prime Minister about all kinds of problems. I had to find the answers, or find the people who could.
"I learned so much, not only about government, but also about the people of this country, who showed so much courage, stoicism, and forbearance in the face of all the tragedy and the hardships that affected us all during those terrible years."
In 1946, Miss HORNE moved from the East Block to Laurier House, Mr. KING's home, where she handled his personal correspondence and did some speechwriting. "I became acquainted with [him] as a person, and I liked him."
In 1950, Miss HORNE struck an early blow for women's rights after she went to work for the assistant private secretary to Robert WINTERS, then minister of reconstruction and supply. Despite all her experience, Mr. WINTERS "wouldn't take her on trips because he thought that was unseemly. So he hired a man, whom she had to train. He was hopeless, but making more money than her," said Mr. PIKE, the nephew.
When Miss HORNE complained to her boss that she should be earning as much as the new man, he retorted that he saw no reason for a raise -- she was making excellent money "for a woman."
"So she packed up and went home," said Mr. PIKE. " Then she called Jack PICKERSGILL, who told her to sit tight for a few days and he'd see what he could do. Very soon after, she went to work for Ellen FAIRCLOUGH at the Department of Citizenship and Immigration."
Miss HORNE finished her career with the federal government in 1973 when she retired from the National Film Board. Awarded the Coronation Medal in 1953 and the Centennial Medal in 1967, she received a Governor-General's Caring Canadian Award in 2004 for her years spent as a volunteer.
Miss HORNE first started volunteering during the First World War, when she knitted scarves for the troops. "I distinctly remember the outbreak of the war in 1914, and I recall many occasions when I went to the train station in Truro with my mother to meet the troop trains to present gifts of food and cigarettes and warm knitted items."
When the Second World War broke out in 1939, Miss HORNE's volunteering became a "way of life. I worked as a check-girl for the weekly dances at the famous North End Services Canteen, and playing the odd game of snooker with the boys who didn't feel like dancing. Many times, I would best serve by lending a sympathetic ear or looking at pictures of sweethearts or wives and children back home."
Life in Halifax during the war was grim, she recounted. "The most vulnerable spot in all of Canada, the city was actually at war and everyone pitched in to help. I can laughingly say that my war work was entertaining and being entertained by the officers of the great battleships that anchored in Halifax harbour. We had a lively social life.
"But the shadow of war was always close at hand; and more than once, men I had danced with one night were brought back two days later, burned beyond recognition when their ship was torpedoed by German U-boats just beyond the harbour headlands. Volunteer visits to Camp Hill, the [military] hospital, were a high priority for me at that time."
Evelyn Annie Ethel HORNE was born on February 23, 1907, in Truro, Nova Scotia She died of heart failure on March 21, 2005, in Ottawa. She was 98. She leaves her niece, Frances; nephews Robert, David, Peter and Donald; 16 great-nieces; and 11 great-great-nieces and nephews.

Bud CULLEN, Politician And Judge: 1927-2005
Liberal loyalist served in Pierre Trudeau's first cabinet only to be dumped when the party returned to power in 1980. A self-described 'front-bench backbencher,' he was later named to the Federal Court
Canadian Press; Globe and Mail archives; staff, Thursday, July 7, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Affable, likeable and reliable, he was a Trudeau man to the last. Even when dumped from cabinet, former immigration minister Bud CULLEN, was a loyalist.
"Bud was a good and decent man who always fought the good fight with decency and civility," his friend Mike BRADLEY and former campaign manager said Tuesday. Now the mayor of Sarnia, Ontario, Mr. BRADLEY once served as executive assistant to Mr. CULLEN, who represented the Sarnia-Lambton riding in southwestern Ontario from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984.
Mr. CULLEN was first appointed to the Trudeau cabinet in 1974 initially, as Minister of National Revenue and, then, as Minister of Employment and Immigration from 1976 to 1979.
As minister, he helped introduce the Immigration Act of 1976 which, for the first time, included a provision for private sponsorship of refugees. He also presided over amendments to the Unemployment Insurance Act in 1977 to increase work incentives and fairness among different economic regions.
Then disaster struck both the Liberal Party in general and Mr. CULLEN personally. In the May, 1979 general election, he was among about 10 Liberal cabinet ministers from Southern Ontario to lose their seats to the Tories led by Joe CLARK. Mr. CULLEN's Sarnia riding was something of a bellwether. Earlier on election night, as results dribbled in, the defeat of Mr. CULLEN had been seen as an indicator that the Liberal's were in trouble. Until that time, Sarnia was a stronghold that had, for years, withstood Tory onslaughts.
In the postmortems that followed, it was evident that the defeat of Mr. CULLEN and his cabinet colleagues could only mean one thing: As a referendum on Trudeau's leadership, Ontario had voted a resounding No.
Bud CULLEN was born in a northern Ontario village where he went to elementary school. He attended high school in Sudbury, Ontario, and went from there to the University of Toronto and to Osgoode Hall Law School.
As a young lawyer, he set up practice in Sarnia, Ontario, where he also developed an active interest in politics. It was also where he retreated after his 1979 electoral defeat. He went back to his law practice and waited and watched. It was, after all, however, a minority government that had replaced the Liberals and only time would tell how long it would survive.
While he waited, Mr. CULLEN did a most curious thing for someone in the public eye: He changed his name. Familiar to Canadians as Bud, he applied under the Change of Name Act to have his name officially switched from Jack Sydney George to Bud, a nickname his mother had given him when he was a young boy. The change, he said, came about because of his renewed role as a lawyer.
"While I was in politics I had no trouble using the name Bud but now that I am back practising law the name Bud could not legally be used," he said in October of 1979. "I cleared the name change with my mother first."
For all that, he was not to be Bud CULLEN the lawyer for long. The Progressive Conservative government of Joe CLARK was soon defeated in the Commons and a new general election was called. In February of 1980, Mr. Trudeau became Prime Minister with a parliamentary majority that included Mr. CULLEN. That, however, was as close as Mr. CULLEN would get to the inner circles of power. The man who had once served as parliamentary secretary to John TURNER when he was finance minister under Lester PEARSON, Mr. CULLEN was not invited back into cabinet.
At 52, he was one of three former Trudeau ministers (the others were Judd Buchanan and Bryce Mackasey) who came back from personal defeat to gain seats in the 1980 election, and he could not, at the time, restrain his feelings. His first reaction at not being reappointed, he said, was of "disappointment that I didn't make [Cabinet] myself. Having been there once it would have been nice to get back."
The 24-hour period before the swearing-in of the new Cabinet, he explained, had been a particularly tense period. It was a time during which each time the telephone rang he wondered if it was the Prime Minister calling about a Cabinet posting. What made it worse was that many Friends from Ottawa had telephoned his Sarnia home to inquire.
All the same, Mr. CULLEN appeared not to feel shortchanged and bitter. "When you play in politics, you play by the rules of the game," he said with characteristic philosophy. "Sometimes you get squeezed by geography, and sometimes it's personality. If you can't accept it, you don't last very long."
As it turned out, neither he nor Mr. Trudeau had much time left in politics. By August of 1983, the Ottawa rumour mills signalled Mr. Trudeau would quit by Christmas.
A Canadian Press survey had quoted six Liberal members of Parliament as saying Mr. Trudeau should step down while others were less declarative. Ever the loyalist, Mr. CULLEN criticized his fellow caucus members and accused his colleagues of having "flapping tongues... That's not the way Liberals conduct their business."
In the end, the rumours turned out to be fairly accurate. Two months after the predicted date, Mr. Trudeau announced he would step down. Mr. TURNER took over the leadership of the Liberal Party and suddenly the country was in the grips of a summer election campaign. As far as Mr. CULLEN was concerned, however, the campaign could go on without him. In June of 1984, he announced he would not seek re-election. Recently remarried, he chose instead to spend more time with his wife Nicole and their young son.
And that was not all. He confided that he had contemplated resigning the previous year but was reluctant at a time of low Liberal support. Once again, he had felt bound by loyalty. As a former Cabinet minister and chairman of the Commons justice committee he had remained seated on the Liberals' front bench. "I was called a front-bench backbencher," he once joked.
Then the polls began to show a resurgence in party support and he knew the time was right. A Gallup poll in May of 1984 pegged Liberal popularity at 46 per cent, six percentage points above the Tories. It was to be his exit cue.
To the last, he never divulged why he was dropped from cabinet but did admit the fall had hurt. All the same, he stayed loyal to Mr. Trudeau since the demotion. "I have never had a bad thought about him in 16 years," he said in 1984.
A month later, his fidelity paid off. In July of 1984, newly minted prime minister John TURNER announced he had been forced by constitutional circumstances to agree to appointments for 17 retiring Liberal members of Parliament. Among them was Bud CULLEN, who was made a judge of Federal Court of Canada, trial division, at a salary of $89,100 plus $2,000 allowance for robes and wigs, not including a generous House of Commons pension.
His appointment, and those of his colleagues, caused bitter complaints of patronage -- including a roasting by the Canadian Bar Association that said it was too open to political considerations and did not guarantee that the best people would be named to the bench.
For all that, Mr. CULLEN took happily to his new role and survived criticism. From time to time, he continued to make headlines, the last occasion, in late 2001, just weeks after the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Although under pressure by lawyers from the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, Mr. Justice CULLEN kept his head and denied the agency's attempts to detain an Egyptian immigrant it suspected was involved in terrorism. He criticized Canadian Security and Intelligence Service interrogation techniques and said they were more suited to a police shakedown of potential criminal informants than an agency trying to extract information in a sensitive cross-cultural situation.
Judge CULLEN left the bench soon after and retired to Ottawa.
Prime Minister Paul MARTIN yesterday issued a press release that was, perhaps, a last reward for loyal service. Mr. MARTIN, who is also leader of the Liberal Party, paid tribute to Mr. CULLEN and extended to his family "our deepest condolences on his passing and our profound appreciation for what he gave to his country."
Bud CULLEN was born Jack Sydney George CULLEN on April 20, 1927 in Creighton Mine, near Sudbury, Ontario He died in Ottawa on July 5, 2006. He was 78. Cause of death was not disclosed. He is survived by his wife Nicole and by six children, three of whom are from an earlier marriage to Marion Ann Hawley.
MERRITT, William Hamilton, 1862 -- Died This Day
Thursday, July 7, 2005, Page S9
Businessman, politician and visionary born on July 3, 1793, at Bedford, N.Y.
The son of Loyalist settlers who found refuge at what later became St. Catharines, Ontario, he operated a number of mills on his property and first conceived of building a canal that would service them. The idea was seized on by others with the result that it developed into a ship canal that linked Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, thus solving the obstacle caused to navigation by the Niagara Falls. In 1824, he formed the Welland Canal Co. and five years later it opened for business. In 1832, he became a member of the Legislative Assembly and was chief commissioner of public works from 1850 to 1851. He campaigned for the St. Lawrence River to be altered and turned into a canal and argued the case for more railways. He died in Cornwall, Ontario, while a passenger on board a ship.

BAXTER, Angus
On September 26, 2005, in his 94th year - after a long, varied and happy life. Writer, traveler, poet, businessman, and renowned expert on genealogy, Angus was born in 1912 in Bristol, England and educated at Bristol Grammar School and Bristol University. He enlisted in the British Army on the first day of World War 2 and served with the London Scottish from 1939 to 1946 as a Lieutenant Colonel and Staff Officer. In 1943, he married Nan PEARSON, the love of his life and also his best friend. After more than 62 years, they were as much in love as ever. They immigrated to Toronto in 1953 with their daughter Susan. Angus was vice-president of Seccombe House - a publishing and marketing company. He retired in 1970 and he and Nan spent a year travelling slowly around the world. Travel played a great part in their extraordinary happy life together and during their marriage they visited more than a hundred different countries. After his retirement, Angus started an entirely new career as an author and lecturer on genealogy. He wrote six books, published in several countries and, mostly, still in print. He gave over 1,000 lectures around the world and more than 300 television and radio interviews. It delighted him to know that he had helped so many people trace their ancestors. Angus did not take either himself or life too seriously. And with his beloved Nan by his side he could often say with truth, "We did have fun!" He is survived by Nan, and by his daughter Susan and granddaughter Katherine BARCSAY - who he deeply loved. Private cremation. Ashes to be scattered later in the English valley of his ancestors.

PICKERSGILL, John Whitney, 1997 -- Died This Day
Wednesday, November 9, 2005, Page S9
Politician born in Wyecombe, Ontario, on June 23, 1905.
While he was a boy, his family moved to a homestead in Manitoba where they farmed. He breezed through the University of Manitoba and then went to Oxford to study history. In 1929, he returned to Manitoba to be a college lecturer but fancied a better salary. In 1936, he wrote the civil-service examination. When he arrived in Ottawa in 1937, he expected to join the Department of External Affairs but, instead, was sent to the Prime Minister's Office for what he was told would be a short term. Nobody lasted more than six weeks with Mackenzie KING. He not only survived but rose to become Clerk of the Privy Council. In between, he met Joey SMALLWOOD and came to support the cause of Newfoundland's joining Canada. In 1953, he ran for Parliament in Bonavista-Twillingate and became Newfoundland's representative in the federal cabinet. In 1954, he became minister of citizenship and immigration. During the Diefenbaker years, he was an effective voice in opposition. When the Liberals returned to office in 1963 under Lester PEARSON, he became secretary of state and House leader. In 1964, he accepted the transport portfolio and introduced the National Transportation Act, at the same time creating the job of chairman of the transport commission at a salary of $40,000 a year. He then wrote the job description and arranged for his own appointment. He was a master at turning the wheels of government, a skill that earned him a grudging tribute from Mr. DIEFENBAKER: " Parliament without Pick would be like hell without the devil."

Angus BAXTER, Genealogist: (1912-2005)
Former army colonel and failed novelist wrote six books that helped thousands of Canadians trace their family roots
By Catherine CULLEN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Thursday, November 24, 2005, Page S9
Families around the world can be grateful that Angus BAXTER failed in his dreams of becoming a novelist. If, as a young man, Mr. BAXTER had achieved the success he coveted in writing fiction, he might never have gone on to pen the six books that made up his In Search of Your Roots series, which helped people across the world reunite with lost relatives.
Mr. BAXTER's interest in genealogy was born out of loss early in his life. As a four-year-old in Bristol, England, young Angus lost his father, William, to heart failure. Having not really known his father, and growing up feeling largely estranged from his devoutly Christian mother, Mr. BAXTER turned to genealogy as a way of understanding his own past.
He was able to translate what he had learned into his first published book, In Search of Your Roots: A Guide for Canadians Seeking Their Ancestors. First published in Mr. BAXTER's adopted home of Canada in 1978, the book effectively communicated his own excitement in the quest to find one's family, said Douglas Gibson, Mr. BAXTER's original publisher at Macmillan of Canada and later at McClelland and Stewart.
Mr. BAXTER was one of the first authors to understand the attraction that genealogy held, said Mr. Gibson. "Searching for your ancestors is armchair travel, but it's travel through time as well. He recognized the excitement in that."
He decided to take that enthusiasm on the road to promote his book. He and his wife, Nan, travelled across Canada and eventually to many different parts of the world. Mr. BAXTER would give lectures on finding one's ancestors and Nan would sell books at the back of the room.
"It seemed like almost every weekend, they were off to this rotary club or that library," recalled Mr. Gibson. "He was sewing the seeds and people went away from that meeting saying, 'Oh, I just read the most amazing book and it's about how you find you roots and you must read it.' "
And people did read it. His books sold hundreds of thousands of copies in Canada and were picked up by Genealogical Publishing Company in the United States. He did hundreds of media interviews and even made an appearance on NBC's The Today Show. Many readers would write Mr. BAXTER, asking for help with their search for their ancestors.
One such reader, Caroline Whitehead, decided to write him after picking up a copy of Searching for your British and Irish Roots at her local library in British Columbia. In her letter, she told Mr. BAXTER about her life growing up in an orphanage in Kent, England, and her dreams of finding her parents.
He not only replied to her letter, he also set to work helping with her research, looking at records that Ms. Whitehead would never have been able to access herself, she said. He never charged her a cent for his time, she added. "He opened every door that was firmly closed to me in trying to find out where I was born, who my parents were -- who I was, really. He did that for me."
While he excelled as an author and genealogist, it wasn't always such an obvious path for Angus BAXTER. Rather, like the search to find one's roots, Mr. BAXTER's path to success as an author was long and full of unexpected turns.
As a young man, he studied history in university and dreamed of becoming a writer. Unable to achieve any great measure of success, he eventually turned to managing ice rinks. Hockey had not yet taken off in his home country of England, but teams would visit from North America and put on exhibition games. It was while working at a local arena that he met his future wife, Nan PEARSON. When the two were introduced he was told, "This is our Miss PEARSON. She'll take care of you."
Before any real romance bloomed between the two, the Second World War broke out. Mr. BAXTER enlisted on the first day of the war. He served in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, eventually rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel.
Always the raconteur, he loved to tell stories about the more amusing moments of his time in the war, recalled his only daughter, Susan BAXTER. In one instance, he was running out the door, late to meet with Friends, when the phone rang. It was his commanding officer. The officer went on and on and Mr. BAXTER agonized over not being able to get off the phone. Finally, he bolted from the house and arrived at his destination, only to find it had been bombed. "For the rest of his life, he always stopped to answer the phone on the way out the door."
During the war, Angus and Nan began to correspond. Eventually, the two were married in 1943. When the war ended, the couple, like many in Britain, had expected to find that the class system in their country would diminish. Realizing the war had not brought the social changes they expected, husband and wife joined the Conservative Party of Britain. Mr. BAXTER enjoyed backroom politics and worked as a political strategist. Ms. BAXTER ran unsuccessfully for a local seat.
In 1949, Susan was born. In 1951, another baby died shortly after birth. With their political battle proving to be a struggle, and the loss hanging over them, the BAXTERs decided on a change. They wanted to move within the British Empire, and since Australia seemed too far and South Africa too dangerous, they decided on Canada.
Mr. BAXTER worked at a few odds jobs to support his family here, eventually settling into a position managing the National Gift Show in Toronto. It was only once he retired from that job in 1970 that he began working on the series of books that would make his reputation.
One of the things he loved most about his career as an author was the opportunity it gave him to help others, said his daughter.
"He answered every single letter people wrote, and continued to do that until about three years ago [when his eyesight began to fail]. If he liked the sound of somebody, he would absolutely go out of his way to help them."
Angus BAXTER was born in Bristol, England on June 8, 1912. He died in Toronto on September 26, 2005. He leaves his wife, Nan, his daughter, Susan, and granddaughter, Katherine BARCSAY.
