Celebration of a life
Superlative after heartfelt superlative was used yesterday to describe the life and legacies of TAILOR/TAYLOR.
By Norman DE BONO and Jonathan SHER, Free Press Reporters, Mon., June 19, 2006
To Cal STILLER, it seemed strangely appropriate that J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR passed away on Father's Day weekend.
After all, it's as though London, its business and philanthropic communities, lost their father figure, he said yesterday.
"The community really looked to him as their father. He was the de facto boss of the business community," said STILLER, a pioneering transplant surgeon here.
"He did not wield that, but it is the way we saw him. "
TAILOR/TAYLOR, 99, died Saturday afternoon. Those paying tribute yesterday described a business giant who gave tirelessly to the community and gently pushed people to be better.
Mr. T., as many Friends called him, was a relentless optimist, said a Londoner who read to him several times a week.
Margi NASH said TAILOR/TAYLOR's recent favourites included Jessie's Journey and Unusual Heroes: Canada's Prime Ministers and Fathers of Confederation.
His optimism was exemplified in his response whenever anyone asked how he was doing. "His answer was always one of two things," NASH said. 'Never better' or 'Better now that you're here.'"
When NASH visited TAILOR/TAYLOR Friday, he was too weak to speak. Even so, when NASH asked him how he was, he mouthed, "Never better."
"A joy, a blessing and a privilege -- that's what it meant knowing him," NASH said through tears.
While he deserved the nickname "Mr. London," he was also a patriotic Canadian, hosting a Canada Day party every year in his backyard.
Daughter Lynn FLEMING/FLEMMING recalled how, in the 1950s, while he was a Canada Trust executive, TAILOR/TAYLOR would go to the basement at Christmas to share a drink with the maintenance workers.
"He didn't care who you were," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "He shopped at the A and P and bought Jane Parker pies for half-price. He would say, 'I am just a simple Prairie boy.' "
Don SMITH, founder of EllisDon Construction, said,He" left us an example and so many wonderful people have learned from him."
Equally at ease in the worlds of community, philanthropy and business, TAILOR/TAYLOR helped found the London Community Foundation, just as he laid the groundwork for the Robarts Research Institute and helped lead so many businesses by serving on their boards.
"He was a mentor to me," SMITH said. "I used to watch what he did and tried to follow his example. Often when I had to make a decision I thought, what would TAILOR/TAYLOR do? He was great help and guidance."
University of Western Ontario president Paul DAVENPORT described TAILOR/TAYLOR as "one of the great builders of postwar London."
TAILOR/TAYLOR, who served as University of Western Ontario chancellor, brought thousands of jobs to the city by helping lay the building blocks for a burgeoning business community. He was a lifelong proponent of education and research, DAVENPORT said.
"In addition to all his other accomplishments, J. Allyn was also a wonderful friend to so many people in this city. He could light up a room just by walking into it."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was also the only Londoner ever to head the national and provincial chambers of commerce simultaneously more than 35 years ago, said Gerry MacARTNEY, general manager of the London Chamber of Commerce.
"(It) is an inspiration to young leaders everywhere to look at a man like him. He led in a kind and calm way. Many barons of industry were tyrants, but TAILOR/TAYLOR had such a gentle approach. He was soft-spoken, but very focused."
Bill BRADY, who served on several boards with TAILOR/TAYLOR, said his long-time friend pushed people to become better than they thought they could be. Everyone who had any contact with TAILOR/TAYLOR learned from his example how to serve others, BRADY said.
STILLER added that others always looked to TAILOR/TAYLOR as a man with measured, solid ideas. "He was always quizzing me, asking me what was happening. He was always saying 'Tell me, tell me,' said STILLER.
"He had integrity with feet-on-the-ground pragmatism. He was a wise, wise man."
The first time Britta WINTHER spoke to TAILOR/TAYLOR, she was afraid he might throttle her. It was 1998 and TAILOR/TAYLOR had been a guest at the London Convention Centre to hear Prime Minister Jean Chretien at a fundraiser. A heavy back-drop curtain fell eight metres and TAILOR/TAYLOR disappeared beneath it.
WINTHER, who worked at the convention centre, phoned TAILOR/TAYLOR next day and braced herself. "As much as I tried to apologize, he would have none of it," she recalled.
Struck by his kindness, WINTHER invited him to lunch and the two struck up a Friendship.
"He was a modest, humble man who always wanted to talk about you. He made you feel great about yourself," she said.
Years before Fred GOSNELL became London's mayor, he was an unknown businessperson trying to get a start when he called TAILOR/TAYLOR's office and asked if they could meet.
TAILOR/TAYLOR saw him that very day, GOSNELL's son, Deputy Mayor Tom GOSNELL recalled.
"He treated my father the same as when he didn't even know him as he did when he was mayor.
GOSNELL said TAILOR/TAYLOR "made everyone in a room feel so important. He made us want to do so much more. And only after you left the room did you realize he had been the driving force."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was the last of a great generation of men that included publisher Walter Blackburn and brain surgeon Charles Drake, GOSNELL said. "They're a generation that left a legacy."
For the funeral, "we want to celebrate a life," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "It will be a family-focus only. He has had so many accolades, it is appropriate this be just a family service."
Funeral Arrangements
Visitation is at James A. Harris Funeral Home Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The service will take place at Saint_John the Evangelist Church at 280 Saint_James St. (at Wellington Street) Thursday at 11 a.m.
Anecdotes and quotes about and by J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR
TAILOR/TAYLOR once said if he could change one moment of his life, it would be his birthdate. Until recently, he played weekly games of bridge, golf and billiards. "I'm enjoying life," he said, adding he would take as much of it as he could get.
"You should learn from any job you have, not only about human nature, but also about the basic principles of how to conduct yourself in the business world."
Reflecting on his favourite summer job, at a Winnipeg golf course in the 1920s
Mr. London is one name by which he was known. Many of London's power people called him Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR out of respect or Mr. T. out of affection. His Friends called him Allyn.
"I'm keenly aware of my own shortcomings. Do we have time to discuss them? No."
Long after retirement and into planning for the Robarts Research Institute, he would still convene meetings for 7: 30 a.m. When long-time (and younger) friend Bill BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said, "Perhaps when I get to be your age, I'll want to sleep in, too."
"My father died at the age of 44 from a leaking (heart) valve, which… in those days was beyond medical science to deal with. Today (fixing it) is like filling a tooth, almost."
Reflecting on the genesis of his passion for funding medical research
TAILOR/TAYLOR called BRADY a few years ago to tell him a move was afoot to rename the Robarts Research Institute as the Queen Mother Elizabeth Research Institute. When BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said: "April Fool's" and hung up.
When the historic TD Canada Trust building at Wellington and Dundas streets was named in his honour, TAILOR/TAYLOR cadged a kiss from Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO -- then five more kisses so the photographers could get it just right.

George BAIN, Journalist And Teacher (1920-2006)
He compensated for his minimal education by hard work, deep research and a fastidiousness that won him a string of plum reporting jobs at The Globe, writes Sandra MARTIN. It also won him the ire of Pierre Trudeau after he pilloried the then prime minister for swearing in the House of Commons
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A self-described contrarian, George BAIN was the pre-eminent political columnist of his era, and undoubtedly the most versatile. He was equally adept at skewering prime ministers and crinkling the morning pages of the good grey Globe and Mail with clever playful conceits. Self-educated, debonair and proud -- some might say arrogant -- he was proprietorial about his prose and he rarely brooked interference with either the content or the style of his copy.
Mr. BAIN opened The Globe's first foreign bureau in London and in Washington. He was an early opponent of the War Measures Act when it was proclaimed by Pierre Trudeau as a Draconian defence against a feared separatist insurrection and he later took Mr. Trudeau to task for swearing in the House of Commons and fibbing about it afterward in what came to be known as the "fuddle duddle" incident. That gave Mr. BAIN another first -- the deliberate use of the word "fuck" in a Globe and Mail column.
"He combined the free-spirited moxie of the old school with the thoughtfulness and professionalism of the new," wrote David Hayes in Power and Influence, his 1992 history of The Globe. "He was a master at developing sources, learning that small fry within the departments were often more useful than big-name politicians and bureaucrats."
Intense, and suffering from diverticulitis, a disease of the colon, Mr. BAIN often vomited from stress when he was writing his column. Poking fun at himself, he once mockingly denied the "widespread belief" that "when the BAIN stomach suffers an overdose of acidity, the BAIN wit flowers most brilliantly."
High principled, bristling with integrity and fastidious in his attire, Mr. BAIN was "impossible" to manage, said Clark DAVEY, a former managing editor of The Globe and a friend since the 1950s. "George had his view and the rest of the world could go to hell, which is a great thing in a columnist and a helluva problem in an employee."
Describing Mr. BAIN as passionate about writing, reading, drinking fine vintages, building stone walls and the practise and process of politics, Mr. DAVEY said he will always remember his elegance not only in the way that he dressed and wrote, but in the way he thought about the world. "He made me feel good about myself because I was in the same business."
George Charles Stewart BAIN was the eldest of four children of William Steward and Mary (née ROSS) BAIN. His father was president of the Bain Coal Co. and his mother was a homemaker. The family lived in north Toronto, where George attended Hodgson Public School and then North Toronto Collegiate.
At 16, he wrote a letter to the city editor of the Toronto Daily Star, presenting his services as a "journalist," an offer that was politely declined. Finish the school year, the editor advised, and then come and ask about a summer job as a copy boy. When George showed up in June, the editor was on vacation. So he went to the rival paper, the Toronto Telegram, told them he had come from the Star and was hired right away. "Newspapers are like that. They have a tendency to think the people at the other place are better than the ones they have," he observed later. "In any event, it turned out to be a good move; the Tely was paying $8 for a five-and-a-half-day week, whereas the Star was paying only Two dollars was an important distinction in the mid-1930s, especially since his father had died of a heart attack that summer and his mother passed away in 1939. "We were sort of adrift," said Mr. BAIN's younger brother, Ian, now a retired social worker. "George was on his own and the rest of us were farmed out to relatives." Ian was sent to Winnipeg, and Moyna and Sheila to Scotland.
As for George, he stayed at the Tely and never again saw the inside of a classroom -- at least as a student. For the rest of his working life, he camouflaged his lack of formal education by hard work, deep research and meticulous attention to his literary and sartorial style. Sounding, reading and looking the part of a well-educated professional became a protective armour. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1940 and spent four years overseas as a bomber pilot. Assigned to 424 Squadron, he flew Wellingtons over Europe, North Africa, Italy and Sicily, returning to Canada late in 1944. On December 16, he married Marion Jene BREAKEY, whom he had met before the war when both of them were working in downtown Toronto. A former secretary and an accomplished cook, she typed all his book manuscripts and supplied all the recipes for his 1972 book, Champagne is for Breakfast. They had one son, Christopher, who was born in 1953. She died in 1998.
After Mr. BAIN was demobilized, he briefly went back to the Telegram, then joined The Globe and Mail as a reporter in October of 1945. He covered city hall and the provincial legislature at Queen's Park and acquired the nickname Basher after an altercation with a policeman "of considerable height and weight," according to Mr. BAIN's recollection. There is probably no connection between this anecdote and The Globe's decision to send Mr. BAIN to Ottawa as its parliamentary correspondent in the two-person Ottawa bureau in 1952.
In the mid-1950s, while still covering the House of Commons, Mr. BAIN was given a signed editorial column, a very unusual move in those days. "He may not have invented the genre, but he certainly perfected the breezy, shoot-from-the-hip style of political column-writing," Mr. Hayes observed in his book. Mr. BAIN delighted in breaking free from the constraints of the inverted pyramid style of newspaper writing that allowed editors to cut from the bottom and encouraged writers to produce action-packed top-heavy lead paragraphs.
Instead of writing for his editors or his colleagues, Mr. BAIN aimed directly at readers, shaking them awake with provocative ideas and shrewd analysis. He loved turning a phrase, switch-hitting political analysis with lighter fare or in introducing a budget discussion with a verse or two, as in: "Forget for the moment the taxes, / There's some cause for some feeble hosannas: / Pay heed that the budget relaxes/ The tariff that's paid on bananas."
The newspaper sent him to London in 1957 to open its first foreign bureau in a style that his son said belongs to a different era. They lived in Mayfair, he went to private school, they travelled extensively and entertained lavishly. Mr. BAIN arrived in Washington to open The Globe's first American bureau in 1961, just as John F. Kennedy was making American presidential politics glamorous. And he was there to cover the assassination from a Canadian perspective.
Back in Ottawa in 1964, he revived his national affairs column and published many of his older pieces in a book, I've Been Around and Around and Around. The next year, he published Nursery Rhymes to be Read Aloud by Young Parents with Old Children, which won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour. A Guide to Canadian Parliamentary Procedure came out in 1970.
In journalistic circles, he will always be remembered for his rejection of the War Measures Act after it was proclaimed on October 16, 1970. Such a Draconian law enraged his civil libertarian principles. "What's going on here?" he demanded the next morning in his column. He went on to argue that "either the government previously grossly underestimated the potential of the F.L.Q. and has only recently come into possession of alarming new facts, or its recent extreme actions are the result of panic, which itself is the result of frustration at being unable to do anything about the two kidnapped men."
Four months later, when Mr. Trudeau mouthed an obscenity in the House at John Lundrigan, a Progressive Conservative from Newfoundland, Mr. BAIN was riled again. He had never liked Mr. Trudeau's easy superiority, which probably rankled him because of his own carefully concealed hardscrabble roots. Sneering at "the-snotty-rich-kid-from-Outremont syndrome," Mr. BAIN condemned the prime minister's "covert, behind-the-hand" gesture because it enabled him to "express contempt for the opposition, without harming his image with the sweet little old ladies up and down the land who will insist upon believing that the Emperor is a much-abused man."
Mr. BAIN left The Globe twice. The first time was in 1973. Feeling stale and restless as a five-times-a-week columnist, he accepted an offer from the Toronto Star to become the paper's editorial page editor. "Where's BAIN?" came a letter from Mr. Trudeau, the same prime minister who had refused to give Mr. BAIN an interview all the time he had worked for The Globe, according to Dic DOYLE in his memoir, Hurly-Burly: A Time at The Globe.
Administration not being Mr. BAIN's strength, he wisely extracted a promise of a foreign posting from Martin GOODMAN, then editor of the Star, as an escape tunnel if he and the editorial board proved incompatible -- as it surely did under the idiosyncratic demands of publisher Beland HONDERICH. Before he departed for London as European and Middle East correspondent for The Star, Mr. BAIN left a note for his successor at the editorial board he had probably borrowed from H.L. Mencken: "Writing editorials is like wetting your pants while wearing a blue serge suit. Nobody notices and it leaves you with a warm feeling."
In 1978, he published Letters from Lilac, with illustrations by Duncan MacPHERSON, a collection of the whimsical columns he had written in The Globe as fictional letters from Clem Watkins Jr., a rural Pepys reporting on the state of the nation from the imaginary town of Lilac, Saskatchewan. Mr. BAIN, who wrote five times a week, had invented Clem and Lilac as comic relief for himself and his readers.
He worked at the Star for six years until he resigned to take up an appointment as director of the journalism school at King's College in Halifax in 1979. Writer Stephen Kimber, who still teaches at the school, was one of Mr. BAIN's early hires. He remembers a time, probably in 1980 or 1981, when Clark Davey was visiting Halifax. "George, who had a habit of dropping in on the all-night production sessions for the school's weekly newspaper, dragged him along. They arrived somewhere around 2 in the morning and were quickly put to work writing headlines for The Monitor. That they cheerfully pitched in left a real impression on the students."
Although Mr. BAIN had officially left daily journalism for academe, he kept on writing columns and articles for a number of outlets. In the 1980s and '90s, he wrote regular columns for various outlets, including a media column in Maclean's, features for Saturday Night, a wine column for Air Canada's En Route magazine and a national affairs column in Report on Business magazine. With a change of editorship at the Report On Business magazine, Mr. BAIN was dropped, a decision he took very hard.
Having disappeared from The Globe once before, he was determined to write a final column to mark his exit this time. The Globe wouldn't print it, citing a policy of not publishing final columns, but the Toronto Sun's Douglas FISHER had no such qualms. "The eventual final parting has been in the works for some time in circumstances of extraordinary unpleasantness… and when I sat down this morning… ready to add another to what must be more than 3,000 columns, on this page, I found myself asking, 'What in hell am I doing here?' " In a final word to his readers, he wrote: "I'll be seeing you around. But not here, not here."
Always acerbic, often testy, Mr. BAIN got grumpier as the decades passed. In 1994, he published his most serious book, Gotcha: How the Media Distort the News, a heavily researched critique of the way journalists (mainly from a generation younger than his) covered news and especially political stories. Derived mainly from his media column in Maclean's, Mr. BAIN was particularly incensed about the way broadcast and print journalists had covered the Mulroney government: "The most intense and unrelenting campaign of denigration that any Canadian government has faced at least this side of the Second World War."
Journalists have both power and influence, so having someone with the integrity and credentials of Mr. BAIN take them to task on ethical issues is both useful and instructive. But he seemed incapable of mixing any wine with his vinegar in Gotcha, with the result that he often sounded simply sour.
The BAINs continued to live in Nova Scotia after he retired from teaching at King's, having bought a property and built a home (with a cellar for his vintage wine collection) on the water in Mahone Bay. Carleton University gave him an honorary degree in 1983 and so did King's in 1986. Although he never was appointed to the Senate, like his old boss Dic DOYLE, he was made a member of the Order of Canada in 2001. He travelled to Ottawa for the investiture and made a witty speech, but, by then, he had begun his serious decline into Alzheimer's disease. Old habits continued, and he was still trying to write in the fall of 2004 when he could no longer live on his own and moved into a veterans hospital.
George BAIN was born in Toronto on January 29, 1920. He died in Halifax on May 14. He was 86. He is survived by his son Christopher, two grandchildren and his three younger siblings and their families.
