ZITNER, Professor Sheldon Paul
died in peace on April 26, 2005. Born on April 20, 1924, in Brooklyn, New York, he taught at Hampton Institute (Virginia) and Grinnell College (Iowa) before joining the Trinity College English Department at the University of Toronto in 1969. He was the devoted and much-loved father of Julia Zitner STEEL, father-in-law of Duncan STEEL, and expectant grandfather of Rebecca STEEL, all of Wirksworth, Derbyshire, England. As a poet, wit, teacher, and literary critic, he had no equal. Sheldon will be deeply missed by former students, colleagues, and troops of Friends. A memorial service will be held in September at Trinity College, University of Toronto.

Poet-professor taught Elizabethan literature
By Sandra MARTIN, Friday, April 29, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- Although he wrote poetry as a young man, Sheldon Paul ZITNER put his muse aside during a scholarly career that started in the United States, but which blossomed in the English Department at Trinity College at the University of Toronto, where he began teaching Elizabethan literature in 1969. Besides his eloquent lectures and his learned dissertations, he was known for his wit, his deep knowledge of art and music and his collection of African masks. He was the kind of teacher other professors heard about from their students. He returned to writing poetry after he had retired as an emeritus professor, publishing The Asparagus Feast in 1999, Before We Had Words in 2002, and a chapbook called Missing Persons in 2003. He was working on a book of translations from the Chinese and a new volume of poetry when he died of cardiac arrest on April 27. He was 81 and had been ill for some time. A memorial service will be held in September at Trinity College, University of Toronto.

Sheldon ZITNER
By Fred TROMLY and Annette TROMLY, Monday, August 22, 2005 Page A14
Teacher, scholar, poet, father, friend. Born April 20, 1924, in New York City. Died April 26 in Toronto, of post-surgical complications, aged 81.
Out of a passion for language Sheldon ZITNER fashioned two splendid careers. The first and longest was as a distinguished professor of English literature. The arc of this career carried him from a high school for gifted boys to degrees at Brooklyn College, New York University, and Duke University. After his doctorate, he took up appointments at colleges in Virginia and Iowa before arriving in 1969 at Trinity College in the University of Toronto, where he taught until his retirement in 1989.
It would be difficult to exaggerate the force of this diminutive man's presence in the classroom. Every class was an eloquent performance (without a script) that was incomparably witty and also deeply wise. He was Aristotle always on the verge of slipping into vaudeville. What student could forget the moment (40 years ago) when, after having brilliantly explicated some of Shakespeare's racier lines, he intoned, "As you grow older, your hair falls out and your body starts to go -- but a dirty mind is a joy forever."
Alongside his Roman candles of wit, he demanded respect for the laborious arts of sound writing and thinking. Essays were meticulously, often bluntly, notated -- once he exhorted the author of a fulsome first-year essay to "sleep on a board." Those of us who were privileged to be in his classroom understood that behind such reproofs lay a generous commitment to our work and to us. He joked that he was our "tor-mentor." Generations of students acknowledge Sheldon as a formative and lasting influence.
His scholarship, like his teaching, bore the stamp of an original, vigorous mind. Although he was highly regarded for a number of books, his most distinctive achievement was a series of elegantly incisive essays. In these pieces on Shakespeare and his contemporaries, he performed without the usual safety net of footnotes. After Sheldon retired from the university, he took up what would be his second, more risky career: he dedicated himself full-time to creating poetry. Although he had written verse in his younger days, it took considerable courage, at 65, for him to join the fellowship of Canadian poets. He flourished. In years of increasing physical hardship, he wrote three volumes of verse: The Asparagus Feast (1999), Before We Had Words (2002), and The Hunt on the Lagoon (forthcoming).
There is an exhilarating range of moods and ideas in these poems, as there always was in a ZITNER conversation. The wit that was Sheldon's glory and armour in his younger days is now infused with a new pathos. When he characterizes himself as a "Jew d'esprit," it is in a "Trial Epitaph," and another poem ends with the line: "I am pushing eighty, pushing it away."
Some of the deepest currents of feeling are released in his poems about Friendship and art, which were vital, lifetime commitments. The strongest emotions, however, are in the poems about his family: clear-eyed and heartbreaking reminiscences of his mother, father, and brother; laments for a once-tender marriage gone wrong; outpourings of wonder and gratitude for his daughter Julia, who brought him so much joy.
Sheldon ZITNER's last finished poem, written after a painful, sleepless night, evokes beauty and loss: Snow / It drifted down all night on the immense / litter of roofs and streets, a white hush / that gentled the city till the morning rush / could shrug off the cold burden of innocence.
He dedicated his last book of verse to his deceased brother, and his brief phrase helps to articulate our own grievous loss: "always present, much missed."
Fred and Annette are Friends of Sheldon.

Domenic TROIANO, Musician: 1946-2005
He was a musician's musician who mesmerized both practitioners and audiences, writes Sandra MARTIN. A self-taught guitarist yet a perfectionist, he was a master of his own style
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, June 4, 2005, Page S7
Guitarist, composer, producer, Domenic TROIANO was a musician's musician. Although he played mostly in Toronto, he was widely celebrated by fans and other musicians for his skillful guitar work and a finely honed style that morphed from rock to soul to jazz-fusion. "He lived to make music. It was his life," said Larry LEBLANC, Canadian bureau chief of Billboard magazine. As another great guitarist Randy Bachman said this week: "I'm sure the heavenly jam sessions with Lenny BREAU and Jimi Hendrix are taken to a new level, now that Dom has arrived."
Domenic TROIANO was born in Italy just after the end of the Second World War and immigrated to Canada with his parents when he was 3. They settled in Toronto where his younger brother Frank and sister Gina were born. While he was still a student at East York Collegiate Institute, he taught himself to play the guitar by studying chord books, aping the sound of such rock 'n' roll icons as Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley and by watching other guitarists play. He loved rhythm and blues and used to slide into the kid's side of the Concord Tavern on Bloor Street West on Saturday afternoons to sip soft drinks and listen to Ronnie HAWKINS and visiting rockers.
By the time he was 16 he was playing in a band, Robbie Lane and the Disciples. The first song he ever wrote, The One For Me, became the B-side on the group's first single. He got his first real break two years later when Ronnie HAWKINS hired him to replace Robbie Robertson who had decamped to play with Bob Dylan. "He was raised right. His parents had that old-school morality, do everything right," said Mr. HAWKINS. "He was a quiet type. I don't think he has ever made an enemy in the world."
Asked what appealed to him about Mr. TROIANO's playing, Mr. HAWKINS said: "He was so into that guitar and music. Nothing else mattered. That came first. And guys who are like that become the great musicians."
Mr. TROIANO stayed with Mr. HAWKINS for less than a year before leaving to develop his own sound and to form a series of evolving groups including the Rogues, The Mandala (1965-69) and Bush (1970-71). He replaced Joe Walsh as the lead guitarist when he played with The James Gang from 1972-73. He toured a lot in the United States with his bands in the 1960s and '70s and released the classic hits Opportunity in 1967 and Love-itis in 1968.
Musician Randy Bachman, formerly of the Bachman Turner Overdrive, remembers Mr. TROIANO from the 1960s. "Being from Winnipeg and having the influence of [guitarist] Lenny BREAU at the beginning of my guitar career, I was interested to hear that when Lenny moved to Toronto, his influence took root there too," Mr. Bachman said in an email message this week.
"I heard about this cool guitar player who played a Tele and gigged in an R&B band called The Mandala. I got their album and Dom's guitar work was a cool mixture of funk/R&B and Lenny BREAU stuff, all in one. I saw them play several times and was mesmerized by both the band and Domenic. Then later I saw him in Bush with the same reaction. He was totally cool and really laid down some stuff."
Years later, when Mr. Bachman made his Axe album, he invited Mr. TROIANO to play on it and he "graciously" did. "We spent a few days in Chicago jamming together," Mr. Bachman said. "He was a great person with a beautiful spirit and was a true master of his own guitar style. I later loved and envied his television sound-track work. He was a great artist and will be sadly missed by many."
After Mr. Bachman left The Guess Who, Mr. TROIANO joined the group as lead guitarist in 1974. By then, the band had scored big with hits such as These Eyes and American Woman. At the time, they were coasting on their popularity and indulging themselves both on stage and off. "He brought a discipline to the group that had been missing," said Mr. LEBLANC of Billboard magazine. "He helped them clean up their image and refine their sound."
He formed The Domenic Troiano band in 1976. It lasted for three years. Later, he said that he "started to get tired of the band thing." Although Mr. TROIANO was revered by other musicians, he was also feared because he demanded such a high performance level. "He could be hard-nosed if musicians were making mistakes or there was an equipment problem," admitted Mr. LEBLANC. Still, Mr. TROIANO "embraced" and mentored musicians who satisfied his standards, no matter how young or unknown they were.
One of them was a 13-year-old kid named Alex ZIVOJINOVIC (later Alex LIFESON of Rush) who approached him at a Canada Day concert in North York in 1967. The Mandala were playing and Alex was a huge fan. "He was so innovative. His tonality was unheard of at the time." Alex went over after and asked for an autograph. "I told him I was a guitar player and I had dreams of doing what he was doing and he was very sweet and kind to me and gave me great encouragement to keep it up and keep playing," Mr. LIFESON said in a telephone interview. "I never forgot that."
Mr. TROIANO also made a number of solo albums, including The Joke's On Me and Fret Fever, played for other musicians such as Diana Ross and Joe Cocker and produced albums for singers, including his one-time wife Shawne JACKSON. He also worked as a session musician and composer of sound tracks for films and television programs such as Night Heat, Diamonds and Hot Shots. Working in television allowed him to use technology and be much more experimental with the sound he was producing.
When he first signed on to do the music for Night Heat, he thought, "this isn't the kind of thing I do," he told an interviewer, but looking back he realized that it was "the perfect job" for him. That's because he loved working in the studio. For him, composing mood music was like "finger-painting, which is something I used to love doing at school."
By the time Mr. LIFESON met up with Mr. TROIANO again at an awards show in the 1990s, he was himself a famous musician with his band Rush. The two men laughed and reminisced after Mr. LIFESON told Mr. TROIANO of their first encounter. "He's always been a fabulous guitarist, a really good songwriter and a great arranger," said Mr. LIFESON. " He's a fabulous musician -- very, very well balanced. But he's also a bright, intelligent man with a great sense of humour. Many people loved him."
About a decade ago Mr. TROIANO was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He was in reasonable health until late last year, thanks to a holistic and homeopathic regimen, according to Mr. LIFESON, who visited him in hospital earlier this year. A tribute is being planned at the national jazz awards in Toronto next month.
Domenic TROIANO was born in Modugno, Italy, on January 17, 1946. He died of prostate cancer on May 25, 2005, in Toronto. He was 59. He is survived by his former wife Shawne Jackson, his mother, a brother and a sister.
