Karl RENNER, Aristocrat And Broadcaster: 1917-2005
Grandson of modern Austria's first chancellor, he came to Canada as an 'enemy alien' and stayed to broadcast propaganda to Germany. Later, he worked for Radio Canada International
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, February 28, 2005 - Page S6
Toronto -- Karl RENNER never meant to come to Canada. He was sent here at the start of war as an internee, an "enemy alien" kept behind barbed wire in one of several camps for Germans and Austrians, many of them Jews, who were living in England when the Second World War broke out in 1939.
Although not a vengeful man, Mr. RENNER did get back at the Nazis. He later helped to create Canadian war propaganda, German-language radio broadcasts aimed at sowing doubts in the German population, and stayed on for most of 65 years.
The Nazi race laws were one of the reasons Karl RENNER and part of his family fled to England. The other was that they couldn't abide living under Nazi rule. Although his father had been a practising Protestant, the Nazis classified him as Jewish. "As far as the Nazis were concerned, he was Jewish," said Frances ASHLEY, Mr. RENNER's sister. The classification applied to his son, too.
In May, 1940, the British didn't have time to decide who was a threat and who wasn't. They put them all in internment camps, such as on the Isle of Man, and then shipped them to Canada. "The British panicked," said broadcaster and writer Eric KOCH who went to England from Germany in the mid-1930s. "We were interned by the British and sent to Canada."
Both men spent about two years in "enemy alien" camps. Later, Mr. RENNER would joke that although they were given the same rations as men in the Canadian Army, they ate better. The chef from the Ritz in London was among the detainees at his camp at Farnham in Quebec's Eastern Townships.
The internees arrived in May, 1940, and settled down to life behind the wire. Soon, however, Ottawa questioned whether they should be treated as prisoners of war and in mid-1941 reclassified them as refugees. The government also realized they could be useful. Some, like Mr. RENNER, were given a chance to work.
He spent a short time at the spy school at Camp X outside Toronto where he polished his propaganda skills. From 1943 on, Mr. RENNER and others wrote and broadcast propaganda aimed at the German population in a unit with the ominous name of the Psychological Warfare Committee. The Canadian Censorship Board also asked Mr. RENNER and many others to translate letters to and from some of the 32,000 German prisoners of war held in camps in Canada. What they gleaned was often used to advantage in their radio broadcasts. The service began transmission during Christmas, "What distinguished the German-language material was that it was prepared by very bright persons who understood German, could empathize with the German population as well as the prisoners," wrote Arthur SIEGEL in his History of Radio Canada International. "Karl RENNER, the Censorship's Board's contributor to psychological warfare, had himself been an internee when he first arrived in this country, although he was a refugee from the Nazis."
Even 10 years after the war, Canadian officials glossed over the treatment given to Germans and Austrians who had fled the Nazis. "A native of Vienna, Karl came to Canada in 1940 and worked for a time with the National War Services in Ottawa," read the announcement when Mr. RENNER was named a correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation International Service, implying he arrived as a happy immigrant.
Karl RENNER was a man of polished manners and a sharp wit, a product of a privileged childhood in Vienna and a direct connection to the culture of central Europe. In Canada, where he lived for most of the past 65 years, he was always the life of the party.
He loved his connection to European socialist aristocracy. "We don't have to work, we're socialists," was a favourite throwaway line. And he had a string of them.
"He had beautiful manners, spoke several languages and was a beautiful dancer," recalled Joan IRWIN, a retired journalist who knew him in Ottawa and Montreal. "He was very aware of his family background. He lived two-thirds in the present and one-third in the past."
Karl RENNER's socialist connection came through his maternal grandfather, Karl RENNER, the first Chancellor of the Republic of Austria. He was born Karl RENNER- DEUTSCH (his father, Hans DEUTSCH, had hyphenated the two names) in Vienna in 1917. The year of his birth shaped his life. The Austro Hungarian Empire was at war with Britain, Canada and the rest of the Empire, France and Italy and soon the United States. When it ended, so did the Empire that stretched from parts of Poland in the north to Trieste and the Adriatic in the south, covering 11 ethnic groups. Vienna went from being the centre of a polyglot empire of 50 million people to being the capital of a poor man's Switzerland with just three million people.
Karl RENNER, grandfather of the man who has just died in Ottawa, was the son of a Moravian peasant and a prominent socialist politician, first elected to Parliament in 1907. In her book, Paris 1919, University of Toronto historian Margaret MacMILLAN details how Karl RENNER, who was leader of a peace delegation at Versailles, used his charm to save chunks of land for the new Austria. "Karl RENNER, a cheerful, portly man, fond of good food and drink, card games and dancing," was how Ms. MacMILLAN described the Austrian chancellor.
By all accounts, it also described his grand_son, Karl RENNER, who had long since dropped both the hyphen and his father's name. Big-picture politics continued to shape young Karl RENNER's life. When that other Austrian, Adolf HITLER, took over his native country in 1938, young Karl RENNER fled to England. His grandfather remained in Vienna under a kind of house arrest throughout the war and re-surfaced in 1945 to help Austria maintain its delicate balance between the Soviet Union and the West.
In England, the grand_son of the old Austrian Chancellor was a social hit. His dancing skills made him a favourite at balls his Austrian airs added a cosmopolitan sparkle, helped out by anti-Nazi views.
After his internment and then freedom in Canada, Mr. RENNER returned to London and worked for an oil company, travelling across Europe. In 1948-1950 he worked for the International Refuge Organization in Italy. During his time in Europe he maintained his Canadian connection, making freelance radio reports to the International Service.
In the mid 1960s, he returned to Montreal to serve as public-relations officer for the service. By then, the Cold War was at its height and much of the service was broadcasting to the Soviet Union.
Mr. RENNER's ambition was to become head of the department but worried his connection to a famous socialist family might have done in him. "Socialism and communism were seen as closely related during the Cold War," said his wife, Juliet HARRISON. Some of his Friends thought he was thwarted, in part by his own louche image.
"He loved to give the appearance of never working very hard," said Mr. KOCH. His old friend Joan IRWIN remembered that Al Johnson, the Saskatchewan-born president of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was not fond of the smooth Karl RENNER.
"Al Johnson thought Karl was frivolous," said Ms. IRWIN. And, in many ways, he was. Years of diplomatic parties gave him a weakness for drink. One of his affectations was to carry a silver flask filled with vodka. Eventually, one by one, he gave up his vices.
Some time in the mid-1970s, Karl RENNER moved to Ottawa. He loved it there. The Austrian embassy treated him as a near deity and he was invited to many receptions. Recently, the current ambassador paid him a visit.
He visited Austria often, staying with his mother at the family home near Vienna. When his mother died, the house was dedicated to his grandfather and made into the Renner Museum.
Karl RENNER was born in Vienna on February 7, 1917. He died in Ottawa on January 26, 2005. He was 87.
He is survived by his wife and by a sister who lives in California.
He asked that some of his ashes be buried beside his parents in Austria, and the rest spread at Lake Memphramagog in Quebec's Eastern Townships.

Robert ALLEN, Playwright And Producer (1917-2005)
Self-taught playwright who submitted his first manuscript while in the army went on to run the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation drama department in the golden years of both radio and television
By F.F. Langan, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, September 17, 2005, Page S9
Robert ALLEN ran the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation drama department in the early days of television, putting on some of the most ambitious television ever performed in the country. It was a time when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation had the airwaves all to itself in the 1950s, and when Mr. ALLEN and the network could afford to produce what he considered the best.
"He represents the golden age of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation of the 1950s and '60s," said Eric KOCH, a retired Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer and executive. "The dramas and opera he produced were far superior to anything done in the United States. There were questions in Parliament about the cost. Nowadays, it would be described as hopelessly elitist."
Mr. KOCH said that under Bob ALLEN, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation produced 17 operas. Since opera had never been done for television, Mr. ALLEN and his producer-director Franz KRAMER had to invent ways to shoot them. There could be no mistakes. Almost all were done before the era of videotape, so the shows were all live broadcasts.
"Now, you would need the resources and organization of D-Day to do an opera for television," said Mr. KOCH. "In Europe, countries join forces just to mount one opera."
Robert ALLEN grew up in Toronto and lived in a house on Winchester, one of the more respectable streets in what then the mixed neighbourhood of Cabbagetown. His father died when he was just 11 and he was brought up by his mother and an aunt. He went to the University of Toronto Schools and then to Trinity College at the University of Toronto, where he graduated with a degree in literature.
After graduation, he worked as an accountant until the Second World War intervened and he was drafted into the army in late 1941. But how did an accountant end up as a giant of Canadian television drama? He was in Halifax, waiting to be sent overseas to the war, and at something of a loose end. By that time, Mr. ALLEN was married and he his wife, Rita, liked to sit about and listen to the radio. It was then that he made his decision.
"At the end of one radio program, Bob was excited and said, 'That's what we're going to do,' " says Rita. " 'Write radio plays.'"
And that is exactly was he did for the rest of his long career. As an exercise, Bob and Rita ALLEN wrote something for Andrew ALLAN, the head of drama at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and sent it off in the mail. Mr. ALLAN liked what he saw and that was the start of a long working relationship.
At the same time, a change had occurred in the army's plans for young Robert ALLEN. It discovered his education. He was pulled out of the overseas contingent and sent to Kingston, Ontario, where he trained in radar and was made an instructor.
Eventually, he did go overseas and stayed on in Germany after the end of the war. He wrote a piece for Reading Magazine in February of 1946 in which he showed empathy for the German civilian population. He described the scene in a Berlin railway station as refugees arrived in late 1945: "They were all exhausted and starved and miserable.... A child only half-alive... a woman in the most terrible picture of despair I've seen.... Even when you see it, it's impossible to believe."
Not long after that, he was sent home to be demobbed among thousands of other young returning servicemen and women. To make ends meet, he worked in a bank but all the while wrote radio plays. Soon, he was in demand as a writer and producer of dramas and landed a full-time job at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
However, in the same way he had confidently embraced radio as a media, he could see a new and glittering shape on the broadcast horizon -- television. While many of his radio colleagues were dismissive of early television shows, he was one of the few Canadian Broadcasting Corporation employees to go out and buy a television set to see for himself what all the fuss was about. His first glimpse of a broadcast had occurred in a store in Vancouver. He stood in front of the showroom window watching a program being beamed across the border from the United States and said, "I can do that."
And he did. In 1952, the year the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation expanded into television, he was asked to be head of television drama. He was soon producing such major series as Festival, which was considered to be one of the finest cultural series ever done in North America. The series produced modern drama by playwrights such as Harold Pinter, as well as ballet and Shakespeare.
Some of the other programs he was closely involved with included Sunshine Sketches, the dramatization of Stephen Leacock's short stories about small town Ontario. The Great Detective, which ran from 1979 to 1982, was the story of a 19th-century detective played by Douglas Campbell. In addition, he also had a part in such ambitious dramatic series as Folio, which in many ways translated radio plays to Fifties television. It was followed by Festival, which ran 60- to 90-minute dramas from 1961-69 and offered more sophisticated productions. Opening Night was a series of 90-minute dramas produced in the early 1970's. One of them, Freedom of the City, dealt with the Londonderry riots in Ulster in 1970.
"Robert ALLEN was a pioneer in the days when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation spent more money on drama than it did on news," said Desmond SMITH, who also worked at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television when it started. Being a pioneer meant inventing just about every technique now know to television.
It seems everyone who was anyone in the world of theatre and film in Canada worked for Robert ALLEN at one time or another. He even discovered Sean Connery, then 31 years old, to play the title role of Macbeth in 1961, a year before the unknown Scottish actor first played James Bond in Dr. No.
Macbeth was directed by Paul ALMOND, then 30, who went on to a successful career in film. He said it couldn't have been done without "a drama department run by someone like Robert ALLEN."
While Mr. ALLEN loved to mount lavish productions, his accountant's training meant he was careful with a buck, and also a good negotiator. Mr. ALMOND, who got his start at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, liked to tell the story of how Mr. ALLEN, who was an early riser, was fond of waking actors at daybreak -- or worse. One well-known actor told Mr. ALMOND that Mr. ALLEN had awakened him at 6: 30 in the morning "to negotiate my contract. I was so bleary-eyed I didn't know what he was saying. But I wanted the part, so I said yes. Later, over coffee at breakfast, I would say to myself, what have I done? What has he done?"
Mr. ALLEN worked at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for more than 40 years, producing such popular series as Seeing Things, a program starring Louis Del Grande about a newspaper reporter who has visions that help him solve crimes. Mr. ALLEN himself had an extraordinary ability to look at a script and see how it would be translated into television. His colleagues say he nurtured a lot of young talent, and taught many future directors the basics of their craft.
Robert ALLEN was a modest man and never boasted of his accomplishments or angled for awards. He lived a quiet life and his main passion away from work was tennis, which he played at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club near his house. He also had the air of the absentminded artistic type.
"One of the odd things I remember about ALLEN is that he biked everywhere," said Desmond SMITH. "It seemed eccentric at the time. He would ride to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation dressed in a business suit."
His nephew, Jamie WEYMAN, says Mr. ALLEN did indeed drive a car and he loved sporty models -- including one Buick Skylark convertible.
Mr. ALLEN lived in Rosedale, as did the likes of such Canadian Broadcasting Corporation stalwarts as reporter Norman DEPOE and the announcer Max FERGUSON. Now the byword for an up-market city district, Rosedale was then more affordable, since many of its houses had been broken into apartments during a wartime housing shortage. He and his wife lived in the house until his death.
Robert Greer ALLEN was born in Toronto on October 19, 1917. He died of cancer on August 20, 2005. He is survived by his wife, Rita.

KOCK, Henry
A leading authority on native woody plants, died of brain cancer on December 25, 2005, at the age of 53. Dubbed 'Mr. Arboretum,' Henry was a horticulturist at the University of Guelph Arboretum for almost 25 years until diagnosis in July 2004. Born in the Sarnia area, Henry grew up working in the family business, Huronview Nurseries. He graduated from the University of Guelph in 1977 with a focus on horticulture. Henry was a longtime fixture in Guelph. In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, he toured the province with his talks and slide shows, inspring countless people to protect wild places, to propagate native plant species, and to liberate their gardens from pesticides. Drawn to a landscape filled with sturdy, individual elm trees that had managed to resist the ravages of Dutch elm disease, Henry created the Elm Recovery Project, which will be his greatest legacy. He traversed Ontario, collecting seeds from sur viving elms. He planted and tended young elms for eventual dissemination back into the landscape. In 1991, Henry met the love of his life, Anne HANSEN, an artist and drama secretary at the University of Toronto. Anne and Henry blended her bicycle advocacy with his biological eco-activism. He rallied for peace in Iraq, renewable energy, public transit, and urban bicycling. He helped spearhead the Guelph Organic Conference, and every year, he and Anne attended International Women's Day in Toronto. Henry co-founded the Hillside Festival, which has become one of Canada's premiere folk music events. Henry received the Governor General's Award for Forest Stewardship in 1998. After Henry's diagnosis, he enjoyed 16 months of relatively robust health. Despite being on chemotherapy, he was able to bike, hike, and go on canoe trips. Henry had completed the first draft of a book on growing native trees from seed. Several of his botany colleagues now hope to complete this project. One of the last things he did this fall was to mount an old, decorated bicycle on the wall at the front of the house, a fitting symbol of how he stepped lightly on the planet. Henry is survived by his wife, Anne; his parents, Mary and Dick in Bright's Grove; his brother John COOK (Cynthia) in Forest; his sister Helen RYKENS (Dan McDERMOTT) in Toronto; as well as a neice and two nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Irene. A celebration of Henry's life will take place at the River Run Centre, 35 Woolwich Street, Guelph, Saturday, January 7, 2006 from 2-4 p.m. Donations to the Elm Recovery Project (519-824-4120 ext. 52113) in Henry's memory will be greatly appreciated.
