WITTENBERG o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-07-04 published
Susan GOLDBERG, Professor And Researcher: 1938-2005
Psychologist at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children wrote the book on parent-child attachment
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, July 4, 2005, Page S6
As a research psychologist at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, her work on attachment in children was internationally recognized. As a social activist involved in the peace movement, she guided parents on how to talk to their children about nuclear war. And as a folk musician, she formed choirs and song circles as part of her deep belief that building community could be done through music.
During her career, Susan GOLDBERG, who has died in Toronto at the age of 67, made significant contributions on the psychosocial implications of early medical problems, such as prematurity, developmental delay, cystic fibrosis and congenital heart disease, how they impact on parent-infant relationships and their consequences for a child's future emotional and social development.
Her book, Attachment and Development, was considered one of the best books on the subject, says Dr. Jean WITTENBERG, head of the infant psychiatry program at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. "She was able to put the theories into language that people understood," he said.
In the last months of her life, Dr. GOLDBERG's study of parent-child attachment was recognized and honoured when she received the Bowlby-Ainsworth Award from the Centre for Mental Health Promotion and the New York Attachment Consortium.
Susan WEISSMAN was a native of New York. Growing up in the Bronx, her parents Frank and Anne WEISSMAN were members of the Communist party and active in the labour movement. Childhood was filled with music, summer camps with the children of fellow Communists and lots of discussion about the rights of workers. She breezed through school; she was 16 when she went off to Antioch University in Yellow Springs, Ohio -- then a hotbed for social activism. It was there that she met her future husband Stanley GOLDBERG. They married and moved to Boston where he did graduate work in the history of science.
In the late 1960s, they moved to Zambia where Mr. GOLDBERG got a teaching job. They stayed in Africa for a couple of years before returning to the United States. Dr. GOLDBERG completed her PhD in child-developmental psychology and in 1974, the couple separated. With three young children, she moved to the Boston area where she got a job at Brandeis University. She taught there for the next seven years.
In 1981, Dr. GOLDBERG moved her family to Toronto and joined the psychiatry research unit at Sick Kids. Six years later, she was appointed professor of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Toronto.
"She was a very kindly mentor," said her former colleague Dr. Susan BRADLEY. " She was extremely valued and sought out by students. She mentored more PhD students than anyone else in our department."
During her career, she was also a member of the editorial boards of the Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development and Infant Behaviour and Development and played a leadership role among Canadian attachment researchers.
Active in the peace movement and having studied the effects of war on children, she wrote a guide called Facing the Nuclear Age: Parents and Children Together and spent time with parents groups to help them understand how to best talk to their children about nuclear war.
During the Gulf War of 1990, she put together a booklet that was distributed to Toronto school teachers to guide them in their discussions about global conflict in the classroom. In the guidelines, she recommends: "It is important that youngsters have an opportunity to express their concerns and to feel adults are taking those concerns seriously. Acknowledge that it is difficult to concentrate on other things in the wake of these events. You may, after some initial discussion, be able to set aside some time each day for this issue."
In the mid-1990s, Dr. GOLDBERG came up with a finding, which at the time she said could alter theories about parent-child attachment.
In experiments involving Romanian-born and Canadian-born four-year-olds, she found a tenfold difference in the tendency of Romanian-born orphaned children to be indiscriminately friendly.
"They would walk up to a stranger and behave affectionately with no hesitation and without checking with their mother," she told The Globe and Mail. This kind of unguarded behaviour normally is thought to result from the lack of a secure bond with a parent, she said at the time, but the Romanian children observed did have good bonds with their adoptive parents.
"Preschoolers who go up to strangers and behave affectionately cannot be said to be well protected," she said. "We have to clue-in parents that being sociable and friendly isn't always a positive thing." Indiscriminate affection is a good survival skill in an orphanage -- since it can win a child attention from busy staff -- but even children who have been in an adoptive family for several years continue to show this behaviour, Dr. GOLDBERG's research found.
Outside her research, Dr. GOLDBERG's other passion was music. "She had a life-long love of folk music," said her daughter Eve GOLDBERG, who is herself a professional musician. "She was always singing. We always had music in the house."
An organizer of the Woods Music and Dance Camp for adults in the Muskoka area of Ontario, she also started a Toronto community choir with her daughter Eve about six years ago. Created with the aim of singing folk music from around the world, the Common Thread Community Choir now has about 70 singers. "She was the heart and soul of the choir," said Eve.
Considered unpretentious by her colleagues, Dr. GOLDBERG was also extremely private. "She never talked about her feelings," Dr. WITTENBERG said. However, she could be outspoken if she felt an injustice had been committed. He recalls a particular child-development conference in Boston in which Dr. GOLDBERG stood up and challenged a top international researcher when he made what she felt was a misogynistic comment. "It was talked about for a long time."
Dr. GOLDBERG had been fighting cancer for several years. About 15 years ago she endured two lumpectomies and later a mastectomy. Last summer, doctors told her that the cancer had spread to her lung. Several months later, it spread to her brain. While she had retired in the early 2000s, she maintained an office and continued her research for as long as she could.
In her honour, the Susan Goldberg Colloquium on attachment, development and child psychotherapies has been established. It will be held every year at Sick Kids. When she heard the news, she told a colleague that she wished she could be there -- at least for the first one.
Susan GOLDBERG was born on March 25, 1938 in New York. She died at home in Toronto on June 14, 2005, surrounded by Friends and family. She leaves her children Ruth, David and Eve; sister Terry and brother Peter.

Educator raised Toronto's Jewish-education profile
By Unnati GHANDHI, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Rabbi Irwin WITTY, long-time executive director of the Toronto Board of Jewish Education, died on Saturday at the age of 73.
Mr. WITTY began at the board in 1969 and was its leader until his retirement in 1997. He guided the small supervisory body to a major source of tuition subsidy and school-consultative services, placing Toronto on the world stage of Jewish education.
In 2003, he came out of retirement to head the Albert and Temmy Latner Jewish Public Library of Toronto, where he remained until his death.
Family and Friends knew Mr. WITTY as an educator skilled in the languages and literature of his people, and as a man hard to follow on the podium due to his engaging jokes.
He is survived by his wife, Shulamith, four children and 22 grandchildren.

Rabbi Irwin WITTY
By Bernie M. FARBER, Ed MORGAN and Seymour EPSTEIN, Wednesday, August 31, 2005, Page A20
Jewish educator, Torah scholar, family man, raconteur extraordinaire. Born September 22, 1932, in Brooklyn, New York Died July 30 in Toronto, of natural causes, aged 72.
Just ask his 22 grandchildren about Rabbi Irwin WITTY's oratorical skills. They will tell you the times when the grandchildren would gather at his home, snuggle up close, and he would tell them stories of Blackie, a dog who ran into all kinds of ethical and moral problems but at the end of the story ended up teaching his human Friends moral lessons. And that was what Rabbi WITTY was all about.
Rabbi WITTY had a lifelong passion: Jewish education. He was born in Brooklyn in 1932 in an area where Judaism imbued all parts of life. After graduating from Yeshiva University, New York, he worked as a teacher and principal in Philadelphia and then in Winnipeg. While in Winnipeg he had a dual role as teacher and pulpit rabbi.
A story is told about his time in Winnipeg that during the seven years he served as rabbi, he was the Lou Gehrig of the synagogue league, never missing a Sabbath service. As an orthodox Jew, he was not permitted to drive on Saturday. Even though he lived two miles from the synagogue and despite Winnipeg's blustery winter weather, he made the trek, often with his four children. One Saturday morning, with the temperature close to minus 40°C and a winter blizzard blowing in from the prairies, Rabbi WITTY and his daughter Judith ran from apartment block to apartment block gaining shelter and respite until they finally made it to the warmth of their synagogue.
In 1969, Rabbi WITTY was hired as the Executive Director of the Toronto Board of Jewish Education, which was then a small supervisory body. Through Rabbi WITTY's leadership, the Board of Jewish Education became a leader in Jewish education both in Canada and around the world.
During his time with the Board of Jewish Education he worked hand in hand with Canadian Jewish Congress and the United Jewish Appeal Federation in another passion of his, the right of faith-based schools to access government funding. Indeed, whether it was a government bureaucrat or the premier of the province, they all knew that if Rabbi WITTY was coming to see them, they had better have their arguments well-honed. While the Rabbi was a tolerant man, he would not hesitate to unleash the full force of his considerable advocacy skills. In doing so, he spoke not only with great wisdom and moral authority but, as his name suggests, with a bitingly accurate wit.
Rabbi WITTY led an orthodox lifestyle and while being an orthodox, recognized the need to identify with Jews of all different religious backgrounds. He was as much at home in an orthodox synagogue as he was conferring with reform, conservative and secular Jews as well as clergy of all different faiths wherever he met them. Indeed, he was the paradigm of what a Jewish educator should be.
But Rabbi WITTY was more than a Jewish educator and advocate. He understood that education needed to use to many tools bring out lessons of life. He was a man skilled in the languages and literature of his people, a man of many accents, a man of much music, and a man of rich humour. It was impossible to follow him on a podium; the audience was still laughing at his last joke and remembering his message.
Rabbi WITTY's deep Jewish knowledge, his elegance in communication, the music in his voice, and his respect for everyone made him a teachers' teacher, the perfect model for the role he so well filled.
Bernie M. FARBER, Ed MORGAN and Seymour EPSTEIN are Friends and colleagues of Rabbi WITTY.

Leonard GERTLER, Urban Planner (1923-2005)
University of Waterloo teacher was a founding father of town planning in Canada, writes Sandra MARTIN. His environment-first strategy 'made a difference to the quality of our lives and our communities'
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, December 17, 2005, Page S11
A holistic and strategic thinker, Leonard (Len) GERTLER was one of the founding fathers of urban planning in this country. He became interested in cities as a researcher and scriptwriter for the National Film Board in the late 1940s and went on to write a landmark report on protecting Ontario's Niagara Escarpment and to serve as a policy adviser to Pierre Trudeau's Ministry of Urban Affairs. A pioneer in co-operative and sustainable development abroad, he involved his students, beginning in 1970, in projects in Indonesia, Jamaica, India, Japan and Uzbekistan.
Historically, planning in Canada was undertaken and taught by people trained in Britain or the United States. Prof. GERTLER, who worked as a planner in Edmonton, Toronto and the Saint John River Valley in New Brunswick before he became the founding director of the School of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Waterloo, brought a Canadian perspective to the classroom.
"Len was Canada's guru of environment-first planning for broad geographic regions. He wanted our cities to be cities [and to work for people's well-being] and he wanted the countryside -- the farmlands, woodlands and wetlands -- to stay countryside," said Linda PIM, a conservation policy analyst with Ontario Nature.
"He was able to connect the key elements of planning theory and practice in a way that resonated with me [and many other students] and stayed with me throughout my career," said David WITTY, who studied with Prof. GERTLER at U of W in the early 1970s and is now dean of architecture at the University of Manitoba. Prof. GERTLER "brought social, ecological, economic and physical components" to planning in a way "that demanded respect."
Mark SEASONS, who was a doctoral student in the mid 1980s and is now an associate professor of planning and associate dean at the U of W, described him as "a man of few but very carefully chosen words," with "a keen intellect and insights." He did not "suffer fools gladly," but "if you gained his respect, he became a loyal friend and life-long supporter."
Prof. GERTLER's passion for planning infected not only his students, but one of his own sons. "Len never cajoled or coaxed me," Meric GERTLER, now professor of geography and planning at the University of Toronto, said in a eulogy at his father's funeral. Instead, he felt an "inexorable pull" toward planning because his father's work was "so damned interesting." It made "a difference to the quality of our lives and our communities at a time when public interest in 'the environment' and all things 'urban' was enjoying its first real flowering in this country."
Leonard Oscar (Len) GERTLER was the youngest of three children of Carl Hiam GERTLER and his wife Gertrude (SLOVER). The GERTLERs and the SLOVERs had immigrated before the First World War from what was then Austro-Hungary, with the SLOVERs settling in Ottawa and the GERTLERs working on farms in an Irish settlement outside Montreal.
Gertrude and her brother had opened a store in the market in Ottawa and Hiam and his brothers started a furniture manufacturing company called Atlas Bedding in Montreal. Mr. GERTLER always hoped one of his sons would join in the family business, but it didn't work out that way.
His eldest son, Maynard GERTLER, a Roosevelt New Dealer, studied and taught economic history in the United States and Britain before returning to Canada and founding Harvest House, a Montreal publishing firm that specialized in translating the fiction of Québécois writers (such as Jacques Ferron, Anne Hébert and Yves Thériault) and in producing books on social and economic topics.
Len was seven years younger. Still, he was "my best friend from the time he was 12 years old," said Maynard GERTLER in a telephone conversation from his home in Montreal. Len was both artistic and athletic. He wrote plays, but he also played baseball and football, skied and trained as a long-distance swimmer.
Like his older brother, Len went to Queen's University to study economics and political science. In his third year, he became the founding editor of a publication called Public Affairs, soon renamed the Queen's Commentator. He emerged with an honour's degree in 1946 and an active interest in socio-economic and political issues.
During summers he found work (through a Montreal friend) with John GRIERSON at the National Film Board, which was then headquartered in Ottawa. After graduation, he joined the staff of the World in Action unit directed by Mr. GRIERSON's Disciple, Stuart LEGGE. He was researcher and scriptwriter for The Challenge of Housing and another film on the evolving National Capital Plan for Ottawa. His script was too outspoken for the National Capital Commission and he was banished from the project.
Dejected, he headed back to Montreal, where fate changed his future both romantically and professionally. In his parents' house, he met Anicka (Anita) BIRNBAUM, a Holocaust survivor from the tiny town of Svalava, Slovakia. In early teens she had been incarcerated in Auschwitz with the rest of her family. Anita and one sister were all that was left of their family when the Russians liberated the camp. She made her way to England, where she worked as a dental technician and used leftover bits of medical modelling clay to make sculptures.
Len's father, who was on the board of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society, sponsored her to come to Canada. "She only weighed about 60 pounds," recalled Maynard GERTLER. "My family sent her to l'École des métiers du meuble, which was the famous art school in Montreal. She studied sculpture and graduated at the top of the class and went on to be an excellent sculptor."
Anita and Len were married in the summer of 1948. The following year, discouraged by the National Capital Commission debacle at the film board, Len GERTLER went back to school and enrolled in a master's program in economics at the University of Toronto, studying under Harold INNIS and Tom EASTERBROOK. He was thinking of going further in his studies, but his older brother said: "Don't go into economics, that's theology. Go into planning."
Coincidentally, McGill had opened its graduate department of planning in 1950, the year he graduated from the University of Toronto. Encouraged by a friend who was already in the program, he enrolled and graduated with a diploma in 1951 and went on to a job in Edmonton as a senior planner (1951), and then as director of the Edmonton District Planning Commission (from 1952 to 1957), one of Canada's first regional planning agencies. He helped develop a workable concept of regional development during the exploration/development boom of the 1950s.
Next stop was Toronto, where he was senior planner and then deputy commissioner of planning from 1957 to 1964, working on a waterfront development plan among other projects. He left municipal government to establish a planning consultancy practice for Acres Research and Planning Ltd. in Niagara Falls.
Two years later, he was invited to help establish the School of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Waterloo and became its founding director. The university administration decided that he couldn't be a full professor because he lacked a doctorate, "the magic ticket," as Len GERTLER described it. If he were good enough to be the founding director of the school, he should be qualified enough to deserve a full professorship, he wrote in his memoir Radical Rumblings: Confessions of a Peripatetic Planner (2005). "Now I know that this betrayed ignorance of the ways of academia," he wrote. "But that very ignorance stiffened my back and the University conceded."
In 1967, the Ontario government of John Robarts, worried about the effects of urban sprawl, mining and recreational skiing on the natural habitat, asked him to carry out a study of the Niagara escarpment. A year later, Prof. GERTLER produced a "seminal report," according to the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, that "not only laid out a plan for a continuous undeveloped corridor along the escarpment, but also shifted the emphasis from recreation to conservation... prompted provincial legislation to restrict quarry development and, later, to regulate all land uses." The study led to the passage of the Niagara Escarpment Act, the formation of the Niagara Escarpment Commission, and the designation of the escarpment as a World Biosphere Reserve by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 1990. Now, if you look at a satellite photograph of southern Ontario, you can see a green ribbon of natural habitats running from Niagara Falls to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.
Prof. GERTLER took a two-year leave (from 1972 to 1974) to serve as director general of research and policy for prime minister Trudeau's Ministry of State for Urban Affairs. "His breadth of practice and involvement spoke to the notion that the national government should have an interest in the well-being of cities, because as cities go, so goes the country, and he saw that so early on," said Prof. WITTY. "He had the ability to see ahead of his time, but I never came to appreciate it until I was out and gone from the university [of Waterloo]."
Prof. GERTLER loved to work and continued writing the second volume of his memoirs even when his health was failing precipitously. In hospital, only days before he died, he reacted with pleasure when his son Kim brought him a book on international development for which he had written the foreword.
Leonard Oscar (Len) GERTLER was born in Montreal on October 10, 1923. He died in Toronto of throat cancer on December 9, 2005. He was 82. His wife, Anita, predeceased him in June of 2004. He is survived by four sons, a daughter, four grandchildren and his brother Maynard.

Rabbi 'a father of Jewish education'
Pushed the province to fund Jewish schools
'In his blood he knew the art of teaching'
By Naomi CARNIOL, Staff Reporter
Rabbi Irwin WITTY made sure no Jewish child in Toronto lacked a Jewish education because of money.
During his years as executive director of the Toronto Board of Jewish Education, he worked with United Jewish Appeal to ensure money was put aside for children who could not afford tuition at local Jewish schools.
After he retired, he continued to push the provincial government to fund Jewish schools.
WITTY died Saturday night in Toronto. He was 73.
Jewish education was WITTY's lifelong passion, colleagues said.
"In his blood he knew the art of teaching," said Seymour EPSTEIN, the board's current executive director.
Born in Brooklyn in 1932, WITTY graduated from Yeshiva University in New York. He worked as a teacher and principal in Philadelphia and Winnipeg.
In Winnipeg, he was also a pulpit rabbi at a synagogue for seven years and helped found a charitable organization to support the Winnipeg Hebrew School. In 1969, WITTY became executive director of the Toronto Board of Jewish Education. He held the position until 1997.
In Toronto, WITTY helped found the Dr. Abraham Shore Academy She'arim Hebrew Day School, which runs programs for Jewish children with learning disabilities.
WITTY believed Jewish education strengthened not only the Jewish community. In a 1985 interview with the Star, he said, "I think we've learned from other groups that the preservation of collective ethnic identity enriches society in general."
EPSTEIN praised WITTY's "vast and deep knowledge of his subject matter, which was Judaica, Jewish history, Jewish philosophy..."
Howard ENGLISH, a spokesman for the United Jewish Appeal Federation of Greater Toronto, worked with WITTY during the rabbi's years with the board of education.
"He was one of a rare breed of educators who was respected by the whole spectrum of the Jewish community.... More importantly, he respected everyone, no matter what their religious denomination," ENGLISH said.
EPSTEIN agreed. "He led an Orthodox lifestyle and was an Orthodox rabbi, but he was beyond tolerant. He truly identified with Jews of all different persuasions. He was a kind of model of what a Jewish educator should be."
Bernie FARBER, Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Jewish Congress, said WITTY was recognized around the world as a leader in Jewish education. That was partly because of the changes he brought to the board.
"He took a small supervisory body and made it into a major source of school consultative services," FARBER said.
Three years ago, WITTY became the executive director of the Albert and Temmy Latner Jewish Public Library.
While WITTY was devoted to education, he also loved music, colleagues said. And he had a soft spot for a good joke.
"He had a great repertoire of hilarious stories," EPSTEIN said.
"It was impossible to follow him on stage because he had a booming presence," FARBER said. "He would tell a joke and when he left the stage people were still laughing."
WITTY used humour to reach out to people. "He was able to communicate with people in their language," FARBER said.
"He didn't speak at people. He spoke to people."
A memorial service for WITTY was held yesterday at the Clanton Park Synagogue. The funeral will be held today in Israel.
WITTY leaves his wife Shulamith, their four children and 22 grandchildren.
He will be greatly mourned by Jewish educators, and the students who benefited from his teaching.
Said FARBER: "He was a father of Jewish education in Canada."
