Canadian actor became Star Trek engineer
Associated Press, Thursday, July 21, 2005, Page S7
Los Angeles -- James DOOHAN, the burly chief engineer Montgomery Scott of the Starship Enterprise in the original Star Trek television series and movies who responded to the command "Beam me up, Scotty," died of pneumonia and Alzheimer's disease at home in Redmond, Washington., yesterday. He was 85.
Mr. DOOHAN, who was from Sarnia, Ontario, got his start in theatre in Toronto after serving in the Canadian Army during the Second World War. He was enjoying a busy career as a character actor when he auditioned for a role in a new space adventure on NBC in 1966.
The series, which starred another Canadian, William SHATNER, as Capt. James T. Kirk, attracted an enthusiastic following of science fiction fans but not enough ratings power. NBC cancelled it after three seasons.
A full obituary is forthcoming.

James DOOHAN, Soldier And Actor: 1920-2005
He was an 'accidental actor' who got his start when he stumbled into a radio station in London, Ontario He found fame as Scotty on Star Trek, but not before he had already experienced real-life heroics on D-Day
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 23, 2005, Page S9
'Och, Cap'n, Scotty cannae work for ye any more."
Star Trek's chief engineer, Lt.-Cmdr. Montgomery Scott, was irascible, excitable and prone to delivering dire warnings in a Scots burr. As portrayed by Canadian James DOOHAN, Scotty became a favourite of the cult television program's legions of fans.
Many assumed the actor shared traits with his character, but out of his red uniform, Mr. DOOHAN was a serious actor with a substantial list of credits. As a young man, he led soldiers as part of the D-Day invasion in an attack which he later described as "giving Hitler the finger."
Mr. DOOHAN's chief engineer character cursed dilithium crystals and coaxed power from overstressed warp-drive engines on the Starship Enterprise. The order to be beamed aboard was directed at Mr. DOOHAN; " Beam me up, Scotty" became a cultural catchphrase, as well as the punchline to innumerable jokes. Mr. DOOHAN became so associated with the command that he used it as the title of his autobiography.
Yet, the program's dedicated fans -- their numbers legion and their allegiance bordering on the fanatical -- insist no character ever uttered the phrase. "Beam me up, Scotty" is to Star Trek what "Play it again, Sam" is to Casablanca.
After the original series ended following a three-year run, Mr. DOOHAN was upset at being typecast as the irascible engineer with the unforgettable burr. After all, he had earlier performed Shakespeare under the direction of Mavor Moore and won notice for his performances in dramas telecast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. He eventually made peace with the character, whom he portrayed in subsequent feature films. He also became a frequent and well-received guest at Star Trek conventions.
A first-class mimic, Mr. DOOHAN tested eight accents when auditioning for the role. "Well, if you want an engineer," he told Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, "it had better be a Scotsman." Mr. DOOHAN settled on a dialect he described as an Aberdeen brogue.
Scotty's accent, it has been noted by one newspaper, fooled no one north of Berwick-upon-Tweed, let alone a Scotsman. Yet the near-comic urgency of his delivery compelled many fans into worshipful imitation. The actor named the character after his maternal grandfather, James MONTGOMERY, a sea captain.
In many ways, Mr. DOOHAN imbued the chief engineer with what could be described as Canadian qualities. His practical warnings ("In four hours, the ship blows up") and excitable protestations ("Ah canna change the laws of physics") always gave way to a resourceful fortitude in completing a task, however dangerous or improbable.
The actor may have drawn on his own experiences as a veteran of the Second World War. He was wounded during the D-Day invasion of Normandy in an incident he described as "giving Hitler the finger."
Those who found his accent unconvincing were not surprised to learn he traced his Scottish roots to an ancestor who lived three centuries ago. He was Irish by heritage and Canadian by birth. James Montgomery DOOHAN, conceived in Belfast, was born in Vancouver on March 3, 1920. His parents and three older siblings had just emigrated to Canada, arriving in Halifax on New Year's Day.
In his 1996 autobiography, Mr. DOOHAN describes his father as a dentist, pharmacist, veterinarian and drunkard. His memories were of a household made unhappy by his father's alcohol-fuelled rages. The family moved to Sarnia, Ontario, when the boy was 6. Two years later, while serving as an altar boy at a Catholic mass, Jimmy suddenly felt delirious and was rushed from church. He was diagnosed with diphtheria.
Around home, he was known to imitate the voices he heard on the radio or at the cinema. At 16, he played the title role in a school production of Robin Hood at Sarnia Collegiate Institute and Technical School.
Eager to leave home, he enlisted as a gunner in the Royal Canadian Artillery immediately after Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939. After learning Morse code and earning a commission as an officer, Mr. DOOHAN spent two frustrating years in training in England. He served as a general's aide-de-camp during the planning for the Dieppe raid.
On June 6, 1944, Mr. DOOHAN commanded 120 men of D Company of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. In the early morning of D-Day, he joined the landings on Juno Beach. While he saw a captain go insane and another man suffer a grievous stomach wound, Mr. DOOHAN managed to lead his men to the seaside village of Graye-sur-Mer without casualty.
Soon, however, they came under fire from a machine-gun lodged in a church tower. Mr. DOOHAN, a command post officer by rank, borrowed a rifle. His first shot missed, but each of the next two shots felled a German soldier and the nest went silent. He never learned whether he had killed or wounded the enemy.
Shortly before midnight, Mr. DOOHAN was walking to his command post when a "machine-gun opened up on us. It hit me and spun me around. Staggering, I fell down into the shell hole," he wrote in his autobiography. "Then I looked at my right hand and saw the blood covering it. I could see the holes in my middle finger."
He walked to a regimental aid post where it was discovered four bullets had also imbedded in his left leg. In his shock at the three shots that smashed his right hand, Mr. DOOHAN hadn't even noticed the other wounds.
He examined the rest of his uniform, discovering a bullet hole in his shirt. He reached his left hand to his right breast pocket. "I pulled out the sterling silver cigarette case that my brother Bill had given me when I was his best man. And there I discovered a dent in it.
"The bullet had come in at an angle, ricocheted off the cigarette case, and bounced away. Four inches from my heart."
The finger was amputated. Years later, Star Trek fans would detail scenes in which the absence of the digit is noticeable. For his part, Mr. DOOHAN was always self-conscious about the loss. He often subtly camouflaged his right hand.
After six years in uniform, he was left with few plans for the future at the end of war. He became an actor by accident. Annoyed by poor performances in a radio drama, Mr. DOOHAN went to radio station CFPL in London, Ontario, to record himself reading from Shakespeare and other works. He disliked what he heard, but an enthusiastic sound engineer convinced him he was a natural. By coincidence, a brochure for a Toronto drama school had arrived at the station not an hour earlier. The novice signed up, and soon won a scholarship to study at the Neighbourhood Playhouse School of the Theater in Manhattan.
Mr. DOOHAN was taught by Sanford Meisner, whose eponymous technique of self-investigation was heavily influenced by the great Russian director Constantine Stanislavsky. Others attending the school in those years included Lee Marvin and Leslie Nielsen, a fellow Canadian who became a close friend.
A versatile performer, Mr. DOOHAN did not want for work. From 1950 to 1958, he appeared in, by his count, 450 live television broadcasts and 4,000 radio shows, shuttling from New York to Toronto. He was called Canada's busiest actor. He starred in Flight into Danger, an hour-long television drama aired on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's General Motors Theatre in 1956. Mr. DOOHAN portrayed a traumatized fighter pilot who takes over the controls of a commercial airliner after both pilots are incapacitated by food poisoning. The script was the first written by Arthur Hailey, a British émigré who settled in Canada after the war and went on to write such blockbusters as Airport and Hotel.
A role as an agent on the television series Treasury Men in Action evaporated without explanation soon after director David Pressman was identified as a Communist. Only later did Mr. DOOHAN learn he had lost the gig to an actor who secretly accused him of being a Red.
In 1963, Mr. DOOHAN appeared as a defence attorney in his first feature film, The Wheeler Dealers, a romantic comedy starring James Garner and Lee Remick, directed by Edmonton-born Arthur Hiller. Meanwhile, his list of television credits reads like an anthology of cult hits. He appeared in episodes of Bewitched, Ben Casey, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
The three-year run of the original Star Trek series cemented the actor's image in the public mind as a blustery but dependable miracle worker in a red uniform. He was paid just $850 U.S. per episode in the inaugural season.
A cast so familiar now -- with William SHATNER, another Canadian, starring as Capt. James T. Kirk; Leonard Nimoy as the logical Mr. Spock, a pointy-eared Vulcan; and DeForest Kelley as the crusty Dr. Leonard H. (Bones) McCoy -- won only a modest audience at first. The series lasted just three seasons, two years short of the Enterprise's promised "five-year mission to explore strange new worlds."
The low-budget series allowed for strong characterizations, which in part explains Star Trek's success in syndication. The series became a phenomenon, sparking an industry of collectables and conventions. Fans memorized large chunks of dialogue. Among the engineer's most repeated quotes: "The best diplomat that I know is a fully loaded phaser bank."
Mr. DOOHAN often failed to mask his antipathy for the star's hammy acting. The kindest praise he offers for Mr. SHATNER in his autobiography is a grudging acknowledgment that one episode's performance was "pretty okay."
The Scotty character was not often the focus of plot twists, although in an episode titled The Changeling, Bones leans over the engineer's body to deliver the shocking line, "He's dead, Jim."
Happily, the engineer is revived before hour's end.
In The Trouble with Tribbles, perhaps the best-loved of all episodes, Scotty disobeys captain's orders and precipitates a bar brawl with Klingons. The episode concludes on a pun ad-libbed by Mr. DOOHAN, after he dispatches a growing horde of furry creatures to a Klingon ship. "I transported the whole kit 'n' caboodle into their engine room," he tells the captain, "where they'll be no tribble at all."
Cancellation left Mr. DOOHAN unemployed and, he feared, unemployable. He complained of being typecast to his dentist, who said, "Jimmy, you're going to be Scotty long after you're dead. If I were you, I'd go with the flow."
He did so, reprising his role as Scotty in seven films. In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the engineer attempts to give voice commands to a 20th-century computer, including speaking into a mouse. Audiences roared with laughter.
After surviving a massive heart attack in 1989, Mr. DOOHAN seemed ever more frail. He deferred questions about the rumoured deterioration of his health by quipping: "If I had Alzheimer's I think I'd remember."
What would be his final public appearance came last August at a five-day event in Los Angeles billed as "Beam me up, Scotty one last time." He posed in his wheelchair in front of his star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
James DOOHAN was born on March 3, 1920, in Vancouver. He died on Wednesday at home in Redmond, Washington., a lakeside suburb 30 kilometres east of Seattle. Alzheimer's disease was one of many afflictions he suffered, including diabetes, lung fibrosis and Parkinson's. He was 85. He leaves his wife, Wende BRAUNBERGER, and their three children, Eric, Thomas and five-year-old Sarah. He also leaves four adult children -- Larkin, Deirdre and twins Montgomery and Christopher -- from his 15-year marriage to Janet YOUNG, which ended in divorce in 1964. A marriage to Anita YAGEL in 1970 ended in divorce two years later. Space Services Inc., a Houston-based company, will send his ashes into space, as he requested.
Toronto Trekkies will gather tonight at the Auld Spot Pub, 347 Danforth Ave., where fans can sign a condolence book to be presented later to the family.
2005-0-7-23 DAWSON, Nora -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, July 23, 2005, Page M4
Wielding a chainsaw into her mid-80s and riding her bicycle around Toronto a few years after that, Nora Claire Elizabeth DAWSON was not one to sit still.
Relatives describe a woman who took hiking trips to the Alps, bought a computer at 85 so she could trade e-mail messages with a grand-nephew in Panama and insisted that her relatives have certain tools on hand, for when she came over.
"When she came to visit us, she'd get the pruning shears and work in the garden," said Dan Walker DAWSON, a nephew who lives in London, Ontario
Her niece, Georgie Dawson DOCKER, tells a similar story. "She would arrive here, aged 85 and up, with her chainsaw and loppers, and she'd be up on the ladder pruning whether you liked it or not," said Ms. DOCKER, who now lives in Dunnville, Ontario
She was physically vigorous and capable, her relatives say, but she was also a well-educated and intellectually active woman. She did The Globe and Mail's cryptic crossword every day until she was 90.
Ms. DAWSON graduated from the University of Western Ontario, in her hometown of London, at only 17 and went on to take a master's degree at Laval University. But when she submitted her work, they gave her a doctorate instead.
As a young woman she moved to Toronto to teach French. She lived in North Toronto and then North York as she moved through a succession of schools including Havergal College and East York Collegiate Institute. She was head of languages at King and Wexford Collegiate Institutes. She was also closely involved in the Women's Musical Club of Toronto, though she didn't play an instrument herself.
Ms. DAWSON did not marry. She died early last month at 92. She leaves two nephews, a niece, and six grand-nephews and grand-nieces.

John MUGGERIDGE, Teacher And Writer: (1933-2005)
son of the famous British journalist and author carved out a life in Canada as a writer, educator and anti-abortion zealot who, in his way, introduced his father to Catholicism, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Thursday, December 1, 2005, Page S9
Teacher and writer John MUGGERIDGE was brought up "a mild boarding-school Anglican," according to his friend, the journalist David WARREN, but became an orthodox Catholic and fervent anti-abortionist under the influence of his wife, the Catholic writer and polemicist Anne ROCHE.
However public and political his stance as a "pro-life" campaigner, Mr. MUGGERIDGE never condoned or supported the homicidal activities of some anti-abortion campaigners, according to Mr. WARREN, himself a convert to Catholicism. "The whole point is that he was defending life, not psychopaths. He would be much more likely to shelter the woman who has had an abortion and realizes that she has done a terrible, terrible thing."
A gentle, self-effacing man with a wry wit, he never acknowledged how many people were touched by his faith in their essential goodness. Mr. MUGGERIDGE subsumed his own ambitions to his role as father and provider to a large family of four sons and a daughter. "He parked his academic career for his family," said his eldest son John Malcolm MUGGERIDGE. "He sacrificed his studies because he needed an income."
His nascent literary skills were called upon when George Orwell asked him to read the manuscript of Animal Farm before it was published in 1945. "Orwell and his father were worrying that the manuscript might suffer the same fate as Gulliver's Travels that is, become a children's book," said the writer Kildare DOBBS, who is related to the MUGGERIDGEs through his mother. John, at the age of 12, read Orwell's masterpiece and proclaimed it an adult book.
John MUGGERIDGE was born on the outskirts of London, England, the second of four children of journalist, writer and pundit Thomas Malcolm MUGGERIDGE and his wife Katherine " Kitty" DOBBS, a niece of Fabian socialist Beatrice WEBB. His older brother Leonard said he really didn't know John MUGGERIDGE as a child because they were "shipped off to boarding schools early on" because their famous father was "here, there and everywhere." The two brothers only became close in the past two decades.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE went to Cranbrook College and then did his then-obligatory two years of military service in Kenya. On his return to England, he studied history at Jesus College, Cambridge. After graduation, he immigrated to Canada in the mid-1950s "out of boredom," as he told one of his grandchildren who was writing a school essay on immigration.
"I think he wanted a change, said his son John Malcolm MUGGERIDGE. "His father was well known and he wanted to carve his own way and he wanted to teach." He looked in The Times of London and found two jobs advertised: one in Hong Kong and one in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
That's how he met his future wife Anne-Marie ROCHE. She had entered the Sisters of Presentation as a novitiate, but had left the order before taking her vows. The sisters had found her a teaching job at the local Catholic school in Corner Brook. Mr. MUGGERIDGE, who was teaching at the public school, met her at a teacher's union meeting.
A couple of years later, Mr. MUGGERIDGE left Corner Brook to study for a master's degree in Canadian history at the University of Toronto. "He and my mom courted by letter," said his son. They married in 1960 and his father converted to Catholicism about a year later. "Mom was the driving force there. She was very, very devout and she had a strong influence on people. She was the main reason for Dad's conversion and for granddad's [in 1982], although he was also influenced by Mother Teresa and the pope."
"My theory is that John came to Canada to get away from his father's notoriety and also perhaps to get away from opinionated people, but then he married an even more opinionated person," said Mr. DOBBS.
A traditional Catholic who disagreed vehemently with Vatican II and its attempts to modernize the Church, Ms. ROCHE is the author of The Gates of Hell: The Struggle for the Catholic Church (1975) and The Desolate City: Revolution in the Catholic Church (1986). "I didn't marry a Catholic, I married Catholicism," Mr. MUGGERIDGE used to say about his increasingly orthodox religious views and his strong anti-abortion stance.
"In Catholic teaching there can not be anything right about abortion," said Mr. WARREN, himself a Catholic convert. "The moral positions may be difficult to uphold in people's personal lives, but they are not difficult to understand."
Mr. MUGGERIDGE taught history and French at Ridley College in the early 1960s and then taught at Earl Haig High School in Toronto before moving with his growing family to Hamilton to pursue a doctorate at McMaster University.
For a time, the MUGGERIDGEs were involved in a conservative discussion group critical of the provisions of Vatican II. Called the St. Athanasius Society, it was led by Jim DALY, a McMaster professor, and by Sister Mary Alexander, a teacher. The group fell apart after Prof. DALY's early death from cancer.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE didn't finish his doctorate. He moved his family, which by then numbered three children, to Niagara College in Welland, Ontario, in 1969, where he taught English literature and composition and Canadian Studies. He retired in the early 1990s. A voracious reader, he read his wife to sleep every night with a selection from Shakespeare, Dickens, Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse or John Donne and the Metaphysical poets.
As a writer, Mr. MUGGERIDGE frequently contributed book reviews to The Globe and Mail, wrote regularly for the now-defunct The Idler magazine and served as a contributing editor to the orthodox monthly magazine, Catholic Insight. "He was a Christian gentleman, very kindly disposed," said associate editor David DOOLEY, a retired English professor from St. Michael's College at the U of T.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE was not a quick writer, according to Mr. DOOLEY. "Give him a book review and the result would be slow in coming and very well thought out with a good sense of style."
Both he and his wife wrote regularly for The Idler in the 1980s and became close Friends with founding editor David WARREN. "He never really thought of himself as a writer," said Mr. WARREN, explaining that Mr. MUGGERIDGE mainly displayed his literary skills through old-fashioned letter writing. He could focus a cold, clear eye on his subject, however.
In "The Last Days of St. Muggs," an article he wrote in the January/February 1991 issue of The Idler, Mr. MUGGERIDGE wrote frankly about his father's youthful days as "an unfaithful, hard-drinking near-playboy," the progressive senility of his last months and summed him up as "a magnificent battle-axe of a Catholic controversialist with yet a wistful and forgiving, kindly heart."
Mr. MUGGERIDGE also contributed regularly to Human Life Review, a sectarian quarterly that William F. Buckley once praised as "the focus of civilized discussion of the abortion issue." He came to the journal through his father, who was good Friends with the founding editor, J.P. McFadden. "He brought clarity, humour, optimism, wisdom, patience and perseverance," to the publication, said senior editor Faith Abbott, the founder's widow.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE's wife Anne began evincing signs of dementia in the early 1990s, and was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and institutionalized in Toronto about five years ago. Mr. MUGGERIDGE moved to Toronto to be near his wife and went every day to feed her lunch. His own health began to fail about 2000. He suffered from multiple myeloma and underwent a strenuous bone-marrow transplant about three years ago.

Courageous, capable and always resourceful, Marion was Peter's constant support until his death in 1985. She found great pleasure in books, cats, fishing and in all birds, but especially loons. She wrestled and coaxed several beautiful gardens out of unpromising patches of land and inspired a love of flowers in all her daughters. For decades her prodigious knitting needles helped support the sheep farming industry. Her recipe for macaroni and cheese was in a class by itself. We will miss her. In keeping with Marion's wishes, cremation has taken place. Interment in Quebec will follow at a later date. If desired, in lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Marion's memory to one of her favourite causes, the Canadian Wildlife Federation or the Salvation Army, or a charity of choice.
