Tom HODGSON, Artist And Athlete: (1924-2006)
The last surviving member of the Painters Eleven group that introduced abstract art to Toronto was an anti-academic who favoured spontaneity over skill. He was also a champion canoeist
By John CHAPUT, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Tom HODGSON grew up on Toronto's Centre Island near Hanlon's Point, a locale named after the legendary 19th-century rower Ned HANLON, but chose canoeing as his water sport. That proved wise as he became a Canadian Olympian on the water and even symbolic in his lifelong occupation as an artist. Whereas a rower gazes back on the water he has spanned, the paddler always looks ahead.
Technically a master of representational fundamentals, Mr. HODGSON enjoyed a long career in advertising, could paint striking realistic portraits, and picked up extra money doing courtroom sketches. His quest as an artist, however, was to find new means to express creativity, even if it meant suppressing skill and rebelling against an establishment he regarded as stifling.
"He thought the most creative people were the young who weren't influenced by anything," says daughter Lise SNAJDR. "My father was a skilled draftsman, but, in a way, he was against skill because it was all stuff you picked up from life experience. He was left-handed, but he went through a period of drawing only with his right hand in an attempt not to be too skillful. As it turned out, he developed an ambidexterity that proved to be another skill.
"His painting was spontaneous -- everything he did was -- but he wanted it to look that way. He could be free and liberal with paint, and put his feelings into a work."
Described by some as "anti-intellectual," Mr. HODGSON was, in fact, a deep thinker who would be better described as anti-academic. "He had his own ideas," says artist Gary MILLER of Peterborough, Ontario "He had great admiration for Willem de Kooning, but he didn't want to just cater to someone's opinion. He was stubborn and, because he was anti-academic, there was a movement to squelch Tom."
In his book Creativity Is Change, Mr. HODGSON declared skill to be "in some ways the antithesis of creativity, a sort of disrespect for man's time, and certainly for his individualism&hellip
"Creativity is curiosity, concern, trial and error, invention, not knowing, discovery. Skill is knowing how to do something…. The essence of creativity is uniqueness."
Mr. HODGSON was sometimes dismissed as a "jock painter" because many couldn't see athleticism and aesthetics harmonized in one personality. He won more than a dozen national titles at the juvenile and junior levels, and then nine more as an adult. In 1952, he took eighth place at the 1952 Helsinki Games in the 1,000-metre tandem with Art Johnson. At the Melbourne Games in 1956, he placed ninth in the 10,000-metre tandem with Bill Stevenson.
Standing just under six feet tall and weighing about 140 pounds, Mr. HODGSON was a whirlwind in the studio, his frenetic energy bustling as if his body was struggling to keep up with his train of thought. Although articulate, he could lapse into a stutter that affected his speech in childhood but was brought under control through therapy he took early in his professional life.
Mr. HODGSON's first serious painting was done from 1943 to 1945 while he was training as a pilot and gunner in the Royal Canadian Air Force. The Second World War ended and he was discharged before he could be assigned to combat, but he made numerous renderings of military life and later donated them to the War Art Museum. He first achieved artistic prominence a decade later as one of the Painters Eleven, the association of Toronto avant-garde painters who challenged artistic conservatism and gave the city its first healthy dose of abstract modernism. With Jack BUSH, Oscar CAHEN, Hortense GORDON, Alexandra LUKE, Jock MacDONALD, Ray MEAD, Kazuo NAKAMURA, William RONALD, Harold TOWN and Walter YARWOOD, they broadened the scope of Canadian art through mutual support and group exhibitions from their 1953 formation through their gradual fragmentation and dissolution from 1956 to 1960. Their affiliation was more professional than theoretical; they used disparate approaches and had no aesthetic commonalities.
Works of the Painters Eleven grew in demand and value in the '60s, but just a little too late for Mr. HODGSON to take full advantage of it. Short of materials at the time, he painted over some of the canvasses that could have brought in good money. Bad luck also struck in 1993 when a fire at his cottage destroyed many of the works he had stored there.
As a senior instructor at the Ontario College of Art, he was in the forefront of outrage at the upheaval of the school brought about by the policies of new president Roy ASCOTT in 1971-72. As a tenured professor, Mr. HODGSON was able to keep his job while many of his colleagues were fired, only to quit himself within a few months. Ironically, he was one of only two people on staff who had opposed the institution of tenure at the Ontario College of Art in the 1960s.
"Tom believed in the process of creativity as one of constant change and in the freedom of artists," says Mr. MILLER, then a student at the Ontario College of Art. " ASCOTT and later Royden RABINOVITCH were from the New York school, very radical and modern, and they were telling students their work was garbage. So Tom broke away, formed the Z School, and took half the student body with him."
As protests go, it was symbolically powerful and a practical failure.
"The Z School lasted about six months," recalls Don MORRISON, an artist and illustrator who was Mr. HODGSON's long-time friend and business partner. "You can't very well have a school without a structure or bureaucracy."
Mr. MORRISON and Mr. HODGSON shared studio space, first on Church Street across from St. James Cathedral, then in a warehouse on the corner of Dufferin and Bloor. Those were also venues for Drawing Night in Canada figure classes held every Thursday. The classes were conducted as the antithesis of the typically sombre gathering of sketchers and painters around a nude model.
"Usually at classes like that, it's like listening for a pin to drop," Mr. MORRISON says. Drawing Night in Canada was different. "These were noisy, vocal, 10 to 18 artists talking and joking. Anyone could grab a cold beer for 50 cents. The model would talk back and tell stories, too."
Inevitably, Mr. MORRISON wearied of the back-lane access to the warehouse and told his partner he'd prefer a storefront studio.
"A storefront?" Mr. HODGSON retorted. "I need a storefront like I need a hole in the head." In a matter of weeks, they had two storefront studios, one of them facing the historically infamous but architecturally engaging Mental Health Centre at 999 Queen Street West.
"Tom was impulsive, just like his painting. He would do exactly what he wanted," Mr. MORRISON says. "He built a swimming pool in the backyard of every house he owned. He would attempt to do almost anything. One day, he had a plumber come to his home on MacPherson Avenue because of a leak and the plumber said a lot of digging was necessary to get at the incoming line in front of the house. When he told Tom what it would cost, Tom said: 'I'll tell you what, I'll dig it myself.' After he had dug this enormous hole, I told Tom: 'Well, it may have been a lot of work to dig, but it'll be easy to fill in.' 'I don't want to fill it in,' he told me. 'I'm going to build a ramp so I can drive my bike right under the front porch and into the basement.' He had three motorcycles -- a BMW, a Husqvarna, and a Can-Am. So he built the ramp.
"It didn't occur to me that if he took the ramp to come in the basement, he'd use it to get out, too. I was renting on the second floor, and the first time he revved up one his bikes -- VRRRROOOOM! I jumped right out of bed."
Mr. HODGSON's energetic and impulsive nature, bohemian cultural surroundings and enjoyment of good times were an ideal formula for trouble in a man ripe for midlife crisis. He had a number of lovers and ended his first marriage to Wilma HODGSON before settling into a peaceful lifestyle with his second wife, Catherine GOOD. They moved to Peterborough in 1990. A few years later, he began to display the first signs of Alzheimer's. He was the last surviving member of the Painters Eleven.
Thomas Sherlock HODGSON was born on June 5, 1924, in Toronto. He died on February 27, 2006, near Peterborough, Ontario, of Alzheimer's disease. He is survived by his sons Mark, Rand and Timothy, daughters Lise Snajdr and Kara Warburton, and sister Jane HODGSON. He was predeceased by his wife, Catherine.

Thomas SHOYAMA, Civil Servant And Teacher: (1916-2006)
After spending much of the Second World War in an internment camp, he joined the Saskatchewan government of Tommy Douglas and helped create Canada's first medicare program. He later advised prime ministers Pierre Trudeau, John Turner and Jean Chrétien
By John CHAPUT, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Regina -- Thomas SHOYAMA began adulthood as a much-disparaged "Jap," which was a tough break for a fellow who just wanted to be an accountant. Such was life in British Columbia in the 1930s, though: If people happened to be of Japanese or Chinese descent, no matter how Canadian their upbringing, the racism of the era relegated them to the derogatory status of "Japs" and "Chinamen" in newspaper headlines, mainstream society and the halls of power.
"Whereas the standard of living of the average Oriental is far lower than that of the white man, thus enabling him to live comfortably on a much lower wage than our white men… be it resolved that this house go on record as being utterly opposed to further influx of Orientals into this Province." So said the British Columbia Legislature in a 1935 decree. At that time, immigrants, and even native-born Canadians of Far Eastern ancestry, weren't wanted as doctors, lawyers or professionals in any line of work -- only as menial labourers, servants, shopkeepers and the like.
So Thomas SHOYAMA never did become an accountant. His perseverance, however, led to a long and distinguished career as one of Canada's leading civil servants, one of Tommy Douglas's closest advisers through the heyday of the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation's governance of Saskatchewan, a vital participant in the development of Saskatchewan Crown corporations and medicare, a key deputy minister in the federal government under Pierre Trudeau and a cherished academic at the University of Victoria.
Ultimately, he not only achieved the basic rights and recognition of full Canadian citizenship that he deserved, but became a major contributor to the country that had branded all of his race as outcasts.
The Canadian branch of the SHOYAMAs began in the 1870s, when some of their Samurai ancestors emigrated after Japan revoked class privilege. His father, Kunitaro SHOYAMA, operated a bakery in Kamloops, British Columbia, that was popular in the 1920s and '30s among regular railway travellers, including Andy Johnson of Vancouver. The baker arranged a bargain with his Vancouver friend: Kunitaro's son Thomas would attend the University of British Columbia and live rent-free at Mr. Johnson's home in exchange for domestic services. Each summer, the student would work (first in Japanese businesses on Vancouver's Powell Street, later at a pulp mill) for his tuition money.
Thomas SHOYAMA graduated from University of British Columbia in 1938 with a bachelor of arts in economics and a bachelor of commerce in accounting. A white man with those credentials would have been employed instantly, but Mr. SHOYAMA found himself shut out of his chosen profession. In 1939, he settled for the post of English-language editor of a fledgling newspaper. Called the New Canadian, it was dedicated to news and advocacy of the Nisei, the largest segment of British Columbia's Japanese-Canadian population that was essentially made up of three groups: Issei (about 10,000 immigrants from Japan and Hawaii, the most senior and influential of the three); Kibei (a few thousand Canadian-born but Japanese-educated adolescents and adults); and Nisei (about 12,000 people born and educated in Canada).
Everything changed with the attack on Peal Harbour in Hawaii by the Japanese navy in 1941. The following year brought about the forced detention of all Japanese-Canadians, and the New Canadian found itself publishing in Kaslo, British Columbia, one of five "ghost towns" that were converted into mass internment camps. In running the paper, Mr. SHOYAMA and his colleagues walked a fine line to avoid the ever-looming threat of closure by government censors, staunchly backing the Canadian war effort while decrying the persistent racism that permeated the country and urging their readers to retain hope.
"We had a sense of mission in the sense that it was very important to do everything we could to sustain morale," he said in retrospect. "We had to tell people: 'Look, in spite of all these terrible things that have happened to you, stand on your own feet. Look within yourself, to your own strength and self-respect and your own sense of dignity.' "
Near the end of the Second World War, Mr. SHOYAMA enlisted in the Canadian army and spent a year in the Canadian Intelligence Corps. Mustered out in 1946 with the rank of sergeant, Mr. SHOYAMA met his destiny while visiting a friend, George Tamaki, in Regina. Mr. Tamaki, who would enjoy an outstanding legal career, was already in the employ of Saskatchewan's two-year-old Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation socialist government. When he took Mr. SHOYAMA to hear premier Tommy Douglas speak, the newly discharged soldier was enthralled and eager to join his friend in the provincial civil service. Mr. Tamaki quickly arranged an interview with Tom McLeod, then economic adviser to the government's executive council.
"I was gathering staff for research," Mr. McLeod said from his Victoria home. "Once I saw his educational background in economics, he joined us -- much to the discomfort of some Co-Operative Commonwealth Federationers in British Columbia."
A 1947 headline in the Vancouver Sun succinctly summarized the Saskatchewan situation: "Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation Government Opens Posts to Japs." The yellow peril on the Prairies consisted of three appointees. Saskatchewan's practice of employing people of Asian heritage, however, was based at least as much on merit as policy.
"So many people were interested in joining the new government," Mr. McLeod explains. "Recruiting was not a major problem. The Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation emphasized social reform, but economically we had to be realistic about it. Saskatchewan was making its way out of years of depression and crop failures. There was very little financial leeway.
"Tommy SHOYAMA established himself immediately in a number of areas, not the least of which was his command of the English language. He was frequently called on to write memos to cabinet and other documents; few were his equal."
With the dynamic and inspirational Mr. Douglas as premier (until Woodrow Lloyd succeeded him in 1961) and the innovative Clarence Fines as treasurer, the provincial civil service established a nationwide reputation for economic and administrative efficiency. In 1950, Mr. SHOYAMA, whose responsibilities had gradually grown since his initial appointment as a research economist, was named secretary of the Economic Advisory and Planning Board, placing him on the top tier of the legislative bureaucracy along with Treasury Board secretary Al Johnson, and tightening a relationship that would span three full decades.
"In one of our earliest meetings in my office, he said, 'I think we would serve our premier best if we specialized in our roles, with you concentrating on social policy while I focus on economic matters,' " Mr. Johnson said from Ottawa. "We did that, but we also made sure that we working together rather than apart. There was nothing self-serving about it. It was very difficult to be self-serving in the Tommy Douglas government because the premier himself was not self-serving."
Mr. SHOYAMA's economic brilliance, aided by the input he encouraged from all sections of the Economic Advisory and Planning Board, was crucial to the early success of Crown corporations, whose three goals of efficient service, low rates and reasonable profit left little room for error. He proved his mettle again between 1959 and 1961, when the provincial hospital-care program, instituted in 1947 and under Mr. Johnson's guard since then, was expanded into the country's first medicare program. While premiers Douglas and Lloyd were at the forefront of the political battle, Mr. Johnson and Mr. SHOYAMA were constantly occupied behind the scenes in committee work and drafting of legislation.
Mr. Douglas described Mr. SHOYAMA as "not the sort of guy you can con -- and he won't fall for a sob story. Yet he's got a good deal of compassion for other people's problems." Versatility was another asset, particularly when Mr. Douglas became national leader of the fledgling New Democratic Party. While other leaders and prominent politicians made use of private or chartered aircraft, Mr. Douglas and the New Democratic Party's campaign war chest of $116,000 made do with commercial flights and a one-man entourage of Tommy SHOYAMA, accompanied on occasion by New Democratic Party secretary Clifford Scotton. Mr. SHOYAMA served as campaign strategist, press aide and baggage handler. He also provided the chicken soup when the leader fell ill.
A turning point for many Saskatchewan civil servants occurred when Ross Thatcher's Liberals took over power in 1964. A "Saskatchewan Mafia" of 70 bureaucrats, including Mr. SHOYAMA, Mr. Johnson and Donald Tansley, were lured to Ottawa to take prominent jobs in the federal bureaucracy. Mr. SHOYAMA rose from senior economist with the Economic Council of Canada to assistant deputy finance minister in four years, headed the task force that prepared the federal position for the Western Economic Opportunities Conference after the 1972 election, and in 1974 began a five-year term as deputy finance minister under three noteworthy ministers: John Turner, Donald Macdonald and Jean Chrétien.
One anonymous cabinet minister lauded Mr. SHOYAMA's conciliatory skills by comparing them with the confrontational style of his predecessor, Simon Reisman: "Simon used to come into a meeting and bluster, unload on anyone who questioned his reasoning.&hellip Tommy never does that, so far as I know. But I've seen him, more than once, get that slightly amused look in his eyes, and then at the end demolish the whole argument with a single, gentle, seeming casual question or observation."
Mr. SHOYAMA retired from public service in 1980 after serving in the Privy Council as a special adviser to prime minister Pierre Trudeau on economic aspects of the repatriation of the Constitution and his election as chairman of the board of the Atomic Energy Commission. Finally, in 1980, he returned to his native province to become a "visiting professor" in the school of public administration and the department of Asian and Pacific studies at the University of Victoria. His "visit" lingered far beyond the usual year or two of most such appointments, as he taught classes until 1991 and, at an annual salary of one dollar, maintained an office to continue individual studies and supervise theses until 1998.
Thomas Kunito SHOYAMA was born September 24, 1916, in Kamloops, British Columbia He died of congestive heart failure and Parkinson's disease on December 22, 2006, in Victoria. He was 90. He is survived by his companion, Hazel MORRIS.
