Jessica Jarvis HUNT, Aviatrix: 1911-2005
Toronto socialite was among the first women in Canada to win a commercial pilot's licence but, sidelined by the Second World War, never flew a plane again
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, May 12, 2005, Page S9
At a time when flying was considered a man's world, Jessica JARVIS, at the age of 23, became the first woman in Toronto, and the fourth in Canada, to obtain a commercial flying licence.
Dubbed a "young aviatrix" by Canada's press of the mid-1930s, she also went onto earn her Canadian, English, French and German private pilot's licences. "I flew to do something to justify my existence and to stand out from the crowd," she said years later.
A member of the Toronto Flying Club, Ms. JARVIS got her wings on August 21, 1931, a little more than two years after Eileen VOLLICK of Hamilton, Ontario, became the first woman in Canada to receive her private pilot's licence. In an interview with the Toronto Daily Star two years later, Ms. JARVIS explained why she thought a commercial pilot's licence would elude her. "I can never have a commercial pilot's licence," she said, "because my eyesight is not good enough. I wear specially ground glasses in my helmet goggles, as it is. Commercial flying is out for me, I'm afraid."
Even so, on August 23, 1934, she became the fourth woman in Canada to qualify for her commercial licence. Still, she later said that as a woman, she never expected to find work as a pilot, even if her eyesight had been better.
"I took it to prove to myself that I could do it. I was always realistic, and I didn't see any place in aviation for women," she told writer Shirley RENDER for Ms. RENDER's book No Place for a Lady: The Story of Canadian Women Pilots 1928-1992 "I didn't want to do anything except enjoy the experience."
Ms. JARVIS loved the experience of flying in open planes. "I'd go up at 7: 30 or 8 a.m. in the summer," she recalled. "The air was so still. The feeling of freedom -- it's incredibly exhilarating. It's a very sensual experience."
The daughter of William Henry Pope JARVIS and Mary Isabelle JARVIS, Jessica JARVIS was born into an affluent Toronto family. Her father, a gentleman journalist, travelled to the North where he took part in the Yukon Gold Rush and wrote several novels based on his experiences.
Despite her privileged background, which included private schools and the well-connected life of a young socialite, Ms. JARVIS described her childhood as lonely and unhappy. "I was very prim and proper," she said in a newspaper interview in 1992. "But at school I couldn't do anything -- I was no good at games. Learning to fly was something I could do sitting down."
While lessons were expensive, money wasn't a problem for Ms. JARVIS. By the time she was 18 she had set aside enough to enroll in flying school at a cost of $20 an hour (about the cost in 1931 to rent an apartment for a month). "It was just something I wanted to do," she said. "I had no lofty aims."
A photograph of Ms. JARVIS, glamourously dressed in her flying gear, graced the cover of Star Weekly in 1940. "Jessica JARVIS, University of Toronto student, is one of Canada's most experienced women pilots. Royal Canadian Air Force say she is capable of piloting their planes," said the caption.
"I do photograph well," she years later said of the publicity.
"She quite liked all the attention she got from her flying," said her daughter Diana INSELBERG. " She was interested in standing out from the crowd."
In 1942, she graduated with a degree in household science from the University of Toronto. She served as a dietician in the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service in Halifax during the Second World War. She later said that she hadn't expected to fly with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the war years due to her poor eyesight.
in the meantime, flying had brought her close to death at least once. "It was looping a loop that nearly did me in, in England," she said in an interview with the Toronto Daily Star in 1933. "I did two loops and, in the second one I didn't pull the stick back far enough. Instead of completing the loop I went out on a vertical so that I was flying upside down. I caught my foot in the side, I couldn't see, and I thought I was in a spin.
"In other words, I thought I was done for. But strange to say, I wasn't scared. A man once told me that when you get in a jam in the air you don't get scared because you are so busy watching what happens.
"That's exactly what took place. In those few seconds, I seemed to remember all the things I had ever been taught and, some way, I pulled out of it. I had started at 2,000 feet and I ended at Shortly after she landed, she recalled how a junior pilot set down soon afterwards. "His face was white with fright. He said he saw me shoot by, going about 165 miles an hour, and thought I was headed straight for death," she said.
"However, it was absolutely my own fault," she added. "I have no one to blame but myself for the whole affair. Most accidents are the pilot's fault, unless there is a structural break."
During the war she had married a naval officer -- she took his name, HUNT -- and they had one child. Unfortunately, the marriage did not last and she found herself alone with a young daughter to raise and no more money for flying. After the war, Ms. Jarvis HUNT moved to Oakville, Ontario, where she ran a bakery and later a second-hand clothing store before returning to Toronto to work for the federal government.
She never took to the air again. Instead, money worries displaced the devil-may-care spirit she had shown as a young pilot. "It was an unfulfilled life in many ways," Ms. INSELBERG said.
In 1969, a dream came true when mother and daughter boarded a DC8 British Airways plane bound for England. It was Jessica Jarvis HUNT's first commercial flight. While she wasn't in the cockpit, the experience proved exhilarating. When the crew heard about her early flying days, they invited her to meet the captain and see what it was like to be behind the controls in a high-tech cockpit -- so very different from the open planes she once flew in the Ontario skies of her youth.
She lived alone most of her life and, in the late 1980s, moved to British Columbia to be near her daughter.
"I never looked on flying as anything but a recreation," she said in 1993. "There were other women pilots who were much more accomplished."
Jessica Jarvis HUNT was born in Toronto on August 26, 1911, and died in the Okanagan Valley town of Enderby, British Columbia, on April 16, 2005. She was 93. She is survived by her daughter Diana INSELBERG and by half-brother William Michael JARVIS.

Don SCOTT, Athlete and Chief Executive Officer (1927-2005)
Argonaut player who competed in the famous 'mud bowl' Grey Cup of 1950 went on to head the country's largest accounting firm
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, December 5, 2005 Page, S11
Toronto -- Don SCOTT's athleticism led him to one of the most famous football games in Canadian history, his brains took him atop the leading accounting firm in Canada and his influence made him instrumental when Ontario moved to no-fault automobile insurance in the early 1990s.
He grew up in Windsor, Ontario in the Depression years, when times were tough for him, his father, a Ford Motor Co. employee, and his bookkeeper mother. He attended Patterson Collegiate Institute where he excelled at football, basketball, and track and field. He was the head boy at the school, a two-time member of the all-city, senior basketball team, and he won the Arthur Currie Memorial Scholarship to attend the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, where he played both football and basketball. In 1949, he graduated with a business degree, began studying for his chartered-accounting exam and found himself playing pro that same year for the Toronto Argonauts. He was an offensive end, packing no more than 160 pounds on a 6-foot-1 frame.
"He was very skinny, the lightest man on the field," his daughter Barb said.
"He was a tall, rangy kid, who worked hard and was very modest. He was well-liked as a teammate, said former teammate Nick VOLPE.
"He wasn't really a star but he was a good outside end, a good catch," said ex-teammate Don DURNO. "He wasn't a hefty man. He was probably more of a basketball player with his size."
Buddy FOWLER, another old Argo mate, recalled Mr. SCOTT as a "wonderful guy and great athlete with a great attitude on life."
Mr. SCOTT played three seasons for the Argos, the second of which was his most memorable because they went all the way to the Grey Cup. Mr. SCOTT, Rod SMYLIE, Marv WHALEY and Jack WEBLEY made up Toronto's potent wide-receiver corps as the Argos rolled along that year. As each November week passed, Mr. SCOTT and his fiancée, Eileen, had to keep postponing their wedding. They had picked November 4 as the date but a winning streak put the nuptials on the backburner.
How good was this Toronto team? At the time, Globe and Mail football writer Hal WALKER described the club as "the greatest Argonaut team of all time." Later that year, sports writers picked them as the top football team of the first half century in Canada.
The Frank Clair-coached Argos started off post-season play by disposing of the Hamilton Tiger Cats 35-19 in the two-game, total-points division championship. The Grey Cup game on November 25 at Toronto's Varsity Stadium became known as the "mud bowl." It was a classic game, but not in the offensive sense. At least a foot of snow had hit Toronto the day before, then melted, and the game became a defensive struggle marred by a muddy morass. Mr. VOLPE kicked two field goals to help Toronto beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers "The field was a sea of water," Mr. VOLPE said. "Bulldozers tried to clear away the water but [they] made it a muddy mess instead. We were literally playing in mud. Bud Tinsley of the Blue Bombers almost drowned. He was face down in the mud and water and he was gasping for breath. He was saved by a referee."
With the big game over, Mr. SCOTT and Eileen finally made firm plans for their wedding. They were married in London on December Mr. SCOTT played one more season for the Argos in 1951 and then decided to retire because his playing time had diminished. "1951 was the year they started bringing in a lot of Americans and didn't use the Canadians as much," his wife said. "After the mud bowl, Don didn't play much."
By that time, Mr. SCOTT had already found a job with Clarkson Gordon. Now part of Ernst Young, it was then Canada's largest accounting firm. He rose to become chairman and chief executive officer, posts he held for eight years.
"Don had a tremendous intellect," said Jim BUNTON, a former associate at Clarkson Gordon. "He kind of glowed. He had a lot of charisma and was very good with staff and people."
Fending off retirement, Mr. SCOTT listened to a number of offers from various groups and companies, finally heeding the call of the provincial government to become head of the Ontario Insurance Commission just when no-fault automobile insurance was coming into play. But in going from the private sector to the tangled red tape of government Mr. SCOTT experienced endless frustrations.
"It was a very trying time," his daughter said. "It was a completely different scenario. In the private sector, he could get something done quickly but, in the public sector, it's not easy. It's a different mindset."
For all that, he left a distinct impression at the Ontario Insurance Commission, said Bernie WEBBER, a former deputy-commissioner under Mr. SCOTT. "He was skilled in athleticism, he was the head of one of Canada's largest accounting firms and he became a top civil servant. We shared a love of language and a mutual disdain for sloppy USAge, particularly by media reporters and announcers whose stock-in-trade is language and who should, by definition, be more precise. You always knew where you stood with him."
Don SCOTT was born July 30, 1927, in Windsor, Ontario He died of cancer on November 3, 2005, in Toronto. He is survived by his wife Eileen and children Christy, Lauren, Barb and Rob.
