STEVENSON, Dixie
In loving memory of my daughter Dixie, December 27, 1989.
To us you were so special
What more is there to say,
Except to wish with all our heart
That you were here today.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
if remembering brings you closer
Then you Ne'er went away
For thoughts of you are with us
Each and every day.
-Forever loved by Anne JOHNSTON and family.

YOUNG, Marion Katharine (née STEVENSON)
Marion Katharine YOUNG (STEVENSON.) Born April 16, 1922, in London, England, Kay died peacefully on July 13, 2005, under the good care of the staff of Victoria Hospital, London, Ontario. A sensitive, civil and gentle woman, she was ever loving and caring as wife to her late husband Gordon Alexander, as mother to Donald Gordon YOUNG, Robert Andrew YOUNG and William Alexander YOUNG, as grandmother to Alicia, Duncan and Troy, and as mother-in-law to Louise GADBOIS and Mary YOUNG. She is survived as well by her beloved sister Ruth Clare LODGE and her husband Arthur and by her brother William Denman STEVENSON and his wife Mildred, along with her relatives sister-in-law Dorothy Jean ANTROBUS, nieces and nephews Kathryn, David and Steven LODGE, Cathy McCALLUM and Robert STEVENSON, and Drew ANTROBUS, together with their spouses and children. Kay was a wise and competent home-maker, and a warm and welcoming hostess. She was raised in relative comfort in the Niagara escarpment area by her mother Agnes Macdonald STEVENSON (CARPENTER,) who was a graduate of the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph, and her father William Oliver STEVENSON, a surgeon. She survived meningitis and rheumatic fever as an adolescent but was left with a damaged heart. Kay and her future husband Gordon met as teenagers, and after an appropriate courtship, they married in September 1944. Kay moved with Gordon's career, which focused on polyester textiles, first with C.I.L. and later with Celanese Canada. As mother to three busy boys, she cared for the family homes in Toronto, Kingston, Hamilton and Montreal with diligence and creativity. After Gordon's retirement in 1978, Kay and Gord settled in Kingston and passed idyllic summers with family and many Friends at their beloved cottage on Bob's Lake, near Westport, Ontario. Kay's old-Ontario culinary mastery, including her signature sweet red pepper sauce, was enjoyed by dozens of visitors from across Canada and around the world. She enjoyed nature, games and reading, and followed the lives of her family and many Friends with much interest and affection. Kay endured two open heart surgeries, first in 1965, and again in 1981 to insert a mechanical heart valve. The valve, which was designed to operate for some ten years, was still functioning at the end of her long, rich and productive life. Relatives and Friends are invited to a memorial service for Kay, to be held in Kingston, Ontario, during the autumn of 2005. Details will be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Wildlife Federation would be gratefully appreciated.

Bill HARCOURT, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Producer 1925-2005
Newspaper reporter who switched to broadcasting launched Newsmagazine, Ombudsman, Tuesday Night and Marketplace
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, August 23, 2005, Page S9
Bill HARCOURT pretty well invented the television documentary. An experienced reporter and editor who cut his teeth working for Canadian and British wire services, he helped develop two areas of television news: live specials and long features.
He started working in television news in 1960, only eight years after it came on the air in Canada and by 1969 he was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's main man on the biggest story of the year -- if not the decade. In late July of that year, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon and Bill HARCOURT spent 26 hours straight in a control room masterminding coverage for a captivated Canadian audience.
As the head of News Specials, he co-ordinated coverage from the United States and across Canada. It was a complex broadcast, hosted in Canada by the eccentric Gordon DONALDSON, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter with a thick Scottish brogue.
What Mr. HARCOURT was doing was, in fact, creating what is now called a long-form documentary, building excitement into the empty space when the astronauts were just travelling. He had experience with live television -- political conventions and elections -- still the most difficult form of broadcasting since mistakes can't be edited.
The documentary form of television was something he helped mould at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, first as a producer with Newsmagazine, travelling around the world with a cameraman, soundman and reporter, then with a weekly documentary series, Tuesday Night.
"He made a real contribution, in my book, to establishing the documentary on television. There was already the National Film Board of Canada form, but the television documentary had to be invented," said Michael MacLEAR, a television reporter and documentary maker who worked with Mr. HARCOURT in the 1960s.
"Bill HARCOURT is one of the great unsung heroes of news and current affairs," said Mr. MacLEAR. "And he was my favourite executive producer."
Well-read and confident, he let the reporter get on with telling the story -- all of which made him easy to work with. All his former colleagues mentioned his good manners and even temper. Ray HAZZAN, who was executive producer of Newsmagazine before Mr. HARCOURT took the job, said he was so polite and well dressed that others took to calling him The Senator.
Bill HARCOURT grew up in Guelph, Ontario, the son of doctor. He graduated from Guelph Collegiate Institute and went on to Loyola College in Montreal.
During summers Mr. HARCOURT worked on passenger ships on the Great Lakes. At that time, it was a popular form of travel from ports such as Toronto, Detroit and Duluth. He started as a cabin boy and worked his way up to chief purser.
One of the ships on which he was purser was The Noronic, known as the Queen of the Great Lakes. As it happened, a disastrous fire aboard the Noronic was also his first and only front-page story at the Kitchener Waterloo Record where he had taken a job as a junior reporter. The ship was moored overnight in Toronto when a little after 2 a.m. on September 15, 1949, fire raged through its five decks. Of the 571 passengers -- mostly Americans sailing from Detroit -- and 174 crew on board, 119 died.
As luck would have it, Bill HARCOURT was in Toronto that night and reported the tragedy back to his newspaper. "It was particularly tough for Bill," said his wife, Nada HARCOURT. "He knew many of the crew members on board the Noronic."
A short while later, Mr. HARCOURT went to work for Canadian Press in Toronto and almost right away moved to New York to cover two different beats: the United Nations and Broadway. For him, it was no trouble to juggle show business and international politics and that impressed his boss, Gil PURCELL, who wanted him to come home and report from across Canada. Instead, Mr. HARCOURT went to London and worked on the North American desk at Reuters.
After five years, he returned home to a job at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where he was made a writer and line-up editor on The National, but soon moved to Newsmagazine, a weekly half-hour program that took an in-depth look at stories.
Michael MacLEAR recalled there were two types of stories that made it on Newsmagazine: longer-form news items on stories of the day, and features. During the 1960's and early 1970's, Mr. HARCOURT accompanied such Newsmagazine reporters as Mr. MacLEAR and William STEVENSON to cover stories in South Africa, Vietnam and Russia.
"He was much under-estimated," said Mr. STEVENSON, who went on to write A Man Called Intrepid, the story of the Canadian spymaster William STEPHENSON. " One of the reasons he was so easy to get on with was that he didn't need to bolster his importance as so many executive producers do."
In late 1969, after the success of the moon walk and Newsmagazine, Mr. HARCOURT became executive producer of Thursday Night, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's flagship documentary program. The show later changed its broadcast night and name to Tuesday Night.
In January of 1974, Mr. HARCOURT started the program, Ombudsman, with Robert COOPER, an unknown 28-year-old lawyer. With Mr. COOPER acting as a crusader for the little guy, Ombudsman was a first in Canadian broadcasting.
"He was very serious about his work and kept the program out of legal trouble," remembered Mr. COOPER. "I think I was nervous and difficult at first but he was patient."
After seven years on the program, Mr. COOPER went on to be a successful producer in Hollywood where he still works. "I learned from Bill how to take a subject that seems to be educational and earnest and turn it into compelling television."
In 1977, Mr. HARCOURT also took over as executive producer for Marketplace, the long-running consumer-affairs program. It was perhaps the only time one person was executive producer of two major network programs at the same time. He finished his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation career at The Journal, where he worked as a senior adviser.
William Vernon HARCOURT was born on January 23, 1925 in Guelph, Ontario. He died on August 7, 2005. He is survived by his wife Nada, daughter Shelagh and brother John.

I Remember -- Beland HONDERICH
By Geoff STEVENSON, Saturday, November 12, 2005, Page S9
Brentwood Bay, British Columbia -- Beland HONDERICH (also known to his staff as BHH) was one of the few newspaper publishers in the world who was in the office almost every Saturday.
From 1973 to 1976, I edited the Saturday edition of the Toronto Star. Bee would appear in the newsroom mid-morning as we readied the final edition (the Star was an afternoon paper in those days), always dressed in grey flannel slacks, navy-blue blazer, white shirt and tie -- and highly polished black shoes.
One morning, he came by to tell me he'd been listening to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio, which had carried a report by English researchers who had found that the loneliest people in Britain were those in big cities -- although, paradoxically, they were surrounded by myriad things to do. Bee thought our readers would be interested in the research.
The Star's switchboard soon found Frank Jones, the Star's resident reporter in London (this was long before the advent of cell phones), and I briefed Frank on the story, asking him to file for Monday's paper.
The story arrived over the weekend -- with the notation " BHH requested." I had no further involvement with it, but it appeared on the front page on Monday. The Star was the only Canadian paper to carry the story.
It was not a remarkable story. What was remarkable was Bee's passion for his paper: He was in the office when most other senior managers were on the golf course or at the cottage -- and he knew an interesting story.
He was a difficult man to work for, but then, aren't all really good managers demanding? He was a giant on the Canadian media scene.

Kay SNELGROVE, 84: Intrepid spy and courier
Part of legendary spy operation
Kept quiet about her wartime work throughout life
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Every family has its secrets. And had the 1976 bestseller A Man Called Intrepid, not been written, Kay SNELGROVE's family might never have learned of hers.
As a teenaged schoolgirl attending Emerson College in Boston and regularly going back home to Saint John, New Brunswick, to visit Friends and family in the early years of World War 2, she helped deliver dozens of covert messages from Britain's war offices that ultimately went to those of American president Franklin D. Roosevelt.
She was part of the largest intelligence operation in history run by Canadian Sir William STEPHENSON, secret envoy for British prime minister Winston Churchill and the man code-named Intrepid.
After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, catapulting the Americans into the war, she was pulled out of school and brought home. Like many women, she went to work for the war effort; unlike many women, she was a code runner, a young woman with war knowledge considered so vital, she was assigned an Royal Canadian Mounted Police undercover officer to accompany her to and from her work at the naval yards.
She had taken an oath of secrecy and she kept it until author William STEVENSON's book was published. It described what is generally believed to be a masterful campaign by Britain to draw the U.S. out of its isolationist policy into the war effort to defeat the Nazis. STEPHENSON ran it out of the British Security Co-ordination Office in Rockefeller Center. Its cable address was Intrepid. But SNELGROVE took no joy in telling her children about what she did in the war.
It was the late '70s and by then she was a single mom living in Brampton raising June, her youngest and the only child still at home. Her country club and cocktail-party lifestyle had ended in 1969 when her husband, Don, left her and she became one of the first women of her set to divorce and downsize to a lifestyle that came without the backyard pool.
She'd picked up the pieces and applied for her first job since she was married, as a receptionist at the Brampton Daily Times, a now defunct Thomson newspaper. SNELGROVE had stunned her boss when she had put down the name of Ken Thomson himself as a reference. She went on to head the paper's classified ad section until she retired in 1986.
Reading STEVENSON's bestseller was "bittersweet" for her, her daughter Mary NORWOOD said.
According to her son, David SNELGROVE, when the book came out she realized she could finally talk about what she did -- but the only person she wanted to talk to about it had died in 1972.
"She always said she regretted never talking to her father about it," he said.
Because she always believed -- but never knew for sure -- that it was her father who volunteered her for the secret agent job.
Thomas MARTIN was a successful consultant working for the federal government rescuing foundering companies in the Dirty Thirties.
Although a lifelong Tory, he was a close colleague of and often on call to Liberal prime minister Mackenzie KING, whom his only child took to calling "Uncle Mac."
Her mother, Rose, an opera singer in Britain, made sure her daughter had every lesson imaginable: jazz, piano, ballet, tap, even acrobatic dance. She grew up in increasingly comfortable and influential homes in the West, then Montreal, where she became Friends with a young man named Pierre Elliott Trudeau whom she always called Elliott, and on to Saint John, where the family lived two blocks from the home of K.S. Irving and where she pitched on the same baseball team as two of his sons.
Talented, athletic and a whiz with numbers like her father, Kay MARTIN graduated from high school at 15. She never understood why her father insisted she attend Emerson College in Boston, where she studied dance and theatre with a great-grand_son of Davy Crockett.
She was in her second year when she was taken to the basement of a museum in Saint John where a man swore her to secrecy, told it had been cleared with her father, and conscripted her to serve her country.
That's how a tiny (she was 5-foot-1 and 99 pounds) convent-educated college girl became a King's Courier, blithely carrying white envelopes across the border. She knew only what she had to do she never knew who else was involved or what purposes the documents she was delivering served.
From her home in Saint John, she'd call a particular cab to drive her to the train station. When it arrived she would say to the driver, "Do you have something for me?" He would reach back over the seat and hand her a sealed envelope she'd put in her school papers.
She never told her children how she knew which Boston cabbie to hail, but once in the cab she had merely to say, "Take me to my dorm," and the driver would ask if she had something for him. And so it went, for two years, until 1941, her senior year, when she got a call demanding she come home for American Thanksgiving.
In Saint John, she again went to the museum basement where she was given another white envelope but this time told what message it contained, and then given different instructions and a combination of numbers and letters to memorize. She never forgot the message: It stated a large flotilla of Japanese battleships was heading for either Pearl Harbor or San Francisco, estimated time of arrival was December 6 or 7.
And she was to deliver that message to the British consul.
On December 6 she was studying in her dorm when her frantic roommate burst in announcing the Japanese bombing. "Pearl Harbor or San Francisco?" MARTIN blurted. It was the first time she had let anything slip and she thought it had gone unnoticed. But a half-hour later, her roommate wanted to know how MARTIN knew where the bombing was. She thought fast and said, "There are only two American naval bases on the west coast," which satisfied her roommate.
Almost immediately, she got a phone call ordering her home. With four months to go before she completed her degree and being of an independent nature, she refused, but the next day discovered her bank account had been emptied and closed, and when she returned to her room, a train ticket had been left on her bed. She never did graduate but went to work ostensibly as a secretary back in Canada.
Again, she was told where she would be working: at the New Brunswick Captor II naval base. Her job description was as a civilian secretary, but it was a cover for her work as an intelligence officer decoding cipher machines for critical naval operations. Once, she was hauled back to the base to run some codes on a suspicious ship in the Bay of Fundy with an outdated code. She identified it as an American vessel that had crossed the international dateline, and saved it from being blown up.
Decades later, she went into therapy to help with her resurfacing nightmares about working triage -- boarding ships to document the human devastation of war -- but when the war ended, she re-entered civilian life with gusto. The '50s found her living a Leave It To Beaver kind of life with the executive husband and three kids.
"She became Mrs. Mom," said NORWOOD.
Her mother taught her how to serve hors d'oeuvres at their parties, but she also taught her how to do a mean cartwheel. When daughter June YOUNG wasn't going to be able to take a night school gym class because of low enrolment, Kay SNELGROVE signed on and took the course. "I got a 79 and she got 84," said YOUNG.
When YOUNG started dating, her mother mentioned that she had been taught how to kill a man with a hatpin. Once, she showed her son an old bullet and told him it had been given to her at the end of the war by a man who said, "This had your name on it, Katie. We got him."
David SNELGROVE did some research on the Internet and found the bullet is a type issued to many European World War 2 military officers. "It could have been a true story," he said. " It's a great story and I don't have any reason not to believe it."
His mother was parsimonious with her war stories, however, never mentioning names, and tight-lipped about identifying details, as she had been trained to be. She never saw her role in the war as heroic. "I would say Mom felt it was her duty," said NORWOOD. "She sure loved her country. She loved being a Canadian."
SNELGROVE died April 25 in Brampton. She was 84 and had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She used to say she should write her memoirs, but she never did, perhaps because she was true to her word and kept her secrets.

STEVENSON, Charles A., P.Eng.
Born in Saint John's, Newfoundland on May 1st, 1933; passed away peacefully in Bowmanville on December 13, 2005. Charles A. STEVENSON moved to Toronto with his family at the age of ten. Following graduation from the University of Toronto with a degree in Civil Engineering, Charlie STEVENSON was employed by McNamara Construction during construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway in the late 1950's. He then transferred to their engineering division where he quickly rose to the position of Engineering Manager, responsible for all of the engineering work undertaken by one of the largest consulting engineering firms of the day. Mr. STEVENSON left McNamara to become a founding partner of SHAL Consulting Engineers. Clients included Public Works Canada, Transport Canada, National Harbours Board and many private sector corporations. The first significant overseas project was the Rodney Bay Development in St. Lucia. This involved creating a new inland lagoon and tourism development in what originally was a mosquito infested area. Next in the Caribbean was a feasibility study, final design and construction of the Deep Water Harbour Extension for the Port of Bridgetown, Barbados. This led to many other significant projects including the Montego Bay, Jamaica Coastal Development Project, for which his firm received an Award of Merit from the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada; a Container Terminal in New York Harbour and bulk marine terminals in St. Vincent and Haiti and the design of the Dhow Harbour in Kuwait which created over 10 kilometres of new docking facilities for local coastal vessels. In 1980, the firm designed and supervised the construction of the Fish Landing Terminal in Nassau, commencing a period of continuous involvement in marine works and waterfront development in the Bahamas. During the same period the firm was selected by Transport Canada to carry out the Ontario Ports Study which established the future needs for port facilities throughout the Great Lakes. The growth of cruising in the Caribbean led to SHAL becoming deeply involved in cruise berths and passenger terminals throughout the Caribbean. Significant projects included the expansion of Nassau Harbour, new cruise berths at two of the Bahamas Family Islands, 1800 feet of coastal vessel docks in Nassau and a cruise ship pier in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. In 1993, Mr. STEVENSON was involved with the Government of Turks and Caicos Islands in carrying out a study to develop an island-wide Marine Transportation Masterplan and to prepare the design and documents for the construction of new port facilities. Over a career spanning more than 40 years of professional practise, Charlie STEVENSON was responsible for the successful execution of marine engineering projects in Canada and sixteen other countries, many of them developing nations which derived considerable benefit from Mr. STEVENSON's professional expertise. He is survived by his loving family: wife Barbara, daughter Lynne and sons Scott and Craig; in-laws Terry, Lisa, Ann and seven grandchildren. His other loved ones include sister Lavinia (Sheldon) and family, sister-in-law Gerry PIESLEY and family and Barb's brothers John (Judy), Bruce (Mary) and their families. We mustn't forget his beloved dog "Niki". Private family service will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2005 at the W.C. Town Funeral Chapel, 110 Dundas St. E., Whitby, Ontario L1N 2H7 between noon and 2: 00 p.m. A "gathering" of Friends will be held between 3: 00 and 5:00 p.m. at 115 Saint John's St. W. in Whitby. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Society would be appreciated by the family.
