Anna Kathleen CAMERON
By Roy CAMERON, Friday, March 11, 2005 Page A18
Admired family builder, dietitian, life artist. Born January 20, 1919, in Waterloo County, Ontario Died November 29, 2004, in Kitchener, of a stroke, aged 85.
Anna SHANTZ, a Mennonite child, didn't speak English until she went to school. She soon skipped grades, but modestly attributed this to the teacher's desire to reduce the number of classes in her one-room school. In high school, Anna was self-conscious because of her rural background. Her father died at this point, when she was 12. But determination to become a dietitian, a goal she ultimately achieved, kept her going.
Anna, a Swiss Mennonite pacifist, married Ewan CAMERON, a Scottish Presbyterian and a policeman who carried a gun. Anna was widowed at 44 when Ewan, then Kitchener's deputy police chief, died suddenly of a heart attack. Anna had four children (Roy, Hugh, Margaret, and Clare) aged 10 to 16, but no job, no income and no recent work experience. She was raising four teens, alone, in the turbulent 1960s.
She was grateful to be hired as a hospital dietitian. She eventually supervised 120 employees. She wrote in a memoir for her grandchildren that her "aim was to keep people happy in the workplace so that they were eager to come to work and give their best. The golden rule 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you' was a good strategy."
Anna blossomed as a strong, independent woman. She was a good-humoured, but serious, activist. She chuckled when she told us of the time in the late 1960s when a car salesman had dismissively asked to speak with her husband. Bad move. She had him open the hood and provide technical details. As he left, she said she would buy the car -- from a dealer who took women seriously.
She was always resourceful, never a victim. Obscene phone call? She feigned deafness, repeatedly asked the caller to speak up, until he hung up in frustration.
She cherished her grandchildren (Melanie, Scot, Ewan, James, Elizabeth, David, Daniel and Thomas), their partners, and her great-grand_son, Owen. She gave them opportunities: she let Ewan rewire her house (under supervision!) in his teens, for experience. She held eagerly anticipated "granny and grandkids only" events that continued to the end.
She was inclusive. When marriages ended, daughters-in-law remained in the family, even as Anna embraced new relationships as they formed.
She stayed spunky as she aged. Her son Clare went to pick her up for a planned outing. She uncharacteristically had forgotten but was soon ready. The next night, he came again, and tried to dupe her by asking whether she was ready to go, even though nothing was planned. With a twinkle, she said, "Sure," grabbed her coat and deftly turned the tables.
Last May, she went to hospital by ambulance with a badly broken leg. When asked who should be notified, she said her busy children shouldn't be bothered until diagnostic work was done, and decisions had to be made.
Anna had grit and resilience. She rebounded from the premature deaths of her father, her husband and her grand_son David, who died in an accident at 11.
She died in bloom, engaged in life, as she had wished. A grocery receipt showed that she had returned from shopping just before she called 911. She died within hours. She had lived fully, was one of the gang, and in control right to the end.
Our mother had a powerful influence on our extended family. Scot, her grand_son, told her publicly at her 85th birthday celebration that he wanted to perpetuate the family culture she had created. He spoke for all of us. It's a legacy to prize.
Roy CAMERON is Anna's son.

John KEYSTON, Physicist And Nato Scientist: 1908-2005
British-born boffin was courted by two countries for his vital work in undersea warfare -- and chose Canada
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Friday, June 24, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- As a backroom Canadian Cold Warrior, he was "one of the greatest brains in North Atlantic Treaty Organization." Yet, for English-born John KEYSTON, it almost didn't happen. As a physicist whose brilliance gained the attention of Albert Einstein, the Royal Navy considered him such a prize that the British were reluctant to let him go.
For all that, Dr. KEYSTON was determined to turn his back on Britain. He arrived in Canada after taking a roundabout route with intermediate stopovers in Rhodesia and India. It all started when he was offered a job in the United States after he had played a vital part in scientific research during the Second World War.
The Americans, it seemed, knew his wartime worth. In 1947, they recognized his highly classified work in anti-submarine warfare by awarding him the U.S. Medal of Freedom with Bronze Palm. He had performed "very meritorious service in the field of scientific development," the citation said. "Dr. KEYSTON promoted and effectively implemented an Anglo-American interchange of scientific and engineering information concerning new weapons and devices of warfare and collaborated closely himself with American research groups, contributing substantially to the Allied war effort."
It was then that they tempted him with a plum job. Dr. KEYSTON, then deputy director of the Royal Navy's Research Programs and Planning Department, was offered a spot as director of the British Commonwealth Scientific Office, which would have required him moving to Washington. By all accounts, he was eager to accept, but, as it turned out, the British would have none of it. At the time, Britain still saw itself as the senior member of a scientific and intelligence partnership with the United States and regarded such approaches as poaching. The Admiralty, the headquarters of the Royal Navy, considered his departure as harmful to its scientific interests.
"Insofar as the Admiralty is concerned, I have to point out that I regard Dr. KEYSTON as one of the really key men in the Admiralty Scientific Organization," wrote F. Brundrett of the Admiralty on February 19, 1947. "The very fact that he has been appointed to [his] rank at so early an age [38] is an indication of the value that we place upon him."
And, as if to put a stamp of ownership of him, the British government saw to it that he was named an officer of the Order of the British Empire in King George VI's New Year's honours list of 1946.
For all that, or possibly because he was denied the job in the United States, Dr. KEYSTON still felt compelled to emigrate. Later in 1947, he made a back-door exit to become research director of the Central African Council in what was then Southern Rhodesia. After that, he spent part of 1949 as scientific adviser to the newly formed Indian Navy, then moved his family to Canada to become chief superintendent of the Naval Research Establishment, now Defence Research Establishment, in Dartmouth, N.S.
It was an exciting time for a researcher in the Royal Canadian Navy. The formation of North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 1948, coupled with the Cold War and the Korean War, saw the federal government spend enormous sums -- almost $2-billion in 1952-53 alone -- to build up the Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Air Force and Royal Canadian Navy. By 1952, about 40 cents of every tax dollar was being spent on defence.
Although the Royal Canadian Navy had only 7,000 sailors and 12 ships when Dr. KEYSTON arrived in Halifax, the fleet saw a dramatic expansion in just a few years. "Eight years later, the Royal Canadian Navy had some 50 warships in commission with a personal strength of nearly 20,000. By 1958, the navy was big, bold, and brash," wrote Marc Milner in Canada's Navy: The First Century (1999). "Its fleet, its weapons, equipment and scientific innovations were all cutting edge."
Anti-submarine warfare was to be the Royal Canadian Navy's main role, and Dr. KEYSTON, who soon signalled his intention of accepting his new home by taking out Canadian citizenship, was at the centre of it, supervising research and development. Richard BLAKE, who worked for him as the head of Naval Research Establishment's engineering section, said the design and building of H.M.C.S. Bras d'Or, Canada's first hydrofoil, was foremost among projects undertaken during Dr. KEYSTON's time at Dartmouth. Also high on the list was research into variable-depth sonar and cathodic protection of ships.
Dr. KEYSTON began his rise from his lower-middle-class roots his father kept the books at a local cement works -- by winning a scholarship to King Edward VII grammar school in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, at 9. Eventually, after completing a degree in physics at Nottingham's University College, he conducted research in Potsdam, Germany, on the hyperfine structure of spectral lines. In 1930, his work on the electrical properties of gases won the praise of Albert Einstein during the legendary physicist's visit to Nottingham. In 1933, Dr. KEYSTON obtained a doctorate in physics from Magdalen College, Oxford.
During the Second World War, he established his expertise in waging war below the waves. His daughter, Judith KEYSTON, of Lewes, England, knew her father was engaged in top-secret work during the war, but was unaware of its nature. She learned some details decades later.
"[He worked] in particular on the effects of underwater explosions, such as depth charges and torpedoes. It was a difficult area because explosions underwater behave differently. For example, if you develop a depth charge, you need to know where and how it will impact," she said. "Submarine warfare was of the utmost strategic importance in Britain's defence and the Allied war effort."
From 1957 to 1964, Dr. KEYSTON worked in Ottawa as vice-chairman of the Defence Research Board before being appointed director of a North Atlantic Treaty Organization technical centre in the Netherlands as part of Supreme Headquarters Allied Command Europe. Better known as SHAPE, it had come into existence in 1951 as part of a North Atlantic Treaty Organization effort to establish an integrated and effective military force that could counter Moscow at a moment's notice.
In 1967, Dr. KEYSTON reached the top of North Atlantic Treaty Organization's scientific world when he was appointed director of armaments and defence research, a post he held for six years. The Cold War, then in its third decade, was still very hot, with dozens of Soviet and Eastern bloc divisions seemingly poised to hurl themselves across Western Europe to the English Channel.
When Dr. KEYSTON retired in 1973, a North Atlantic Treaty Organization admiral called him one of the alliance's most "competent, authoritative and decisive figures. When we had a difficult problem, we came to seek your advice [and] have all been impressed by your intuition and quick reactions indicating the best solution. From the scientific and military points of view, we all consider you one of the greatest brains in North Atlantic Treaty Organization," said Vice-Admiral E. Cioppa on June 20, 1973.
To his peers, he was an accommodating and understanding colleague. "He was a splendid man to work for, an outstanding administrator," said Mr. BLAKE, who is now retired and lives in Guelph, Ontario "He was much respected and his personality blended very well with the rest of us. His calibre was such that he would have earned a knighthood [in Britain]."
John Edgar KEYSTON was born on July 7, 1908, in Nottingham, England. He died of natural causes on April 8, 2005, in Ottawa. He was 96. He leaves his son John and daughter Judith. He was predeceased by his wife, Irene.
