LAW, Alan Joseph Woodforth, P.Eng.
Alan Joseph Woodforth LAW died peacefully at home, in the arms of his wife and best friend Nicki, on February 11, 2006. He was 74 years old. Born on January 21, 1932 in Cheshire, England, Alan graduated at age 19 from Nottingham University with a degree in Mining Engineering. During his final year at university, Alan applied for a student position at Sigma Gold Mine in Val D'Or, Quebec and left England in 1952 for Canada, a life long dream. After working with Sigma for three years, Alan went to Manitouwadge to work for Noranda Mines, Geco Division producing copper and zinc, where he worked as an underground surveyor, and later as a layout engineer. In 1958, he moved to Elliot Lake as the Planning Engineer for Rio Algom Mines - Milliken Division, and in 1959, on a blind date at the old Gatineau Club in the Ottawa /Hull area where Della Reese was performing, Alan met Diane McGLADE, affectionately known as Nicki, whom he married on June 25, 1960. It was at Milliken Mines in Elliot Lake that Alan met a number of people who would direct the course of his life and career - Dale and Norma HENDRICK, Mervyn UPHAM, George STENNING, Carl ASHENHURST, Ted CHEESEMAN, Dennis BRIDGER, Alex McNEILL, and many others. Alan moved quickly through the ranks at Milliken Mines holding the position of Chief Mining Engineer until the mine closed in 1964. Nicki and Alan then moved to Nenagh, Ireland in 1964 where he developed a lead-zinc mine as the Chief Engineer for Mogul of Ireland. He returned to Canada in 1966 to work as Chief Engineer at Newmont's Granduc Mines Ltd, and engineered an eleven-mile tunnel that had to be driven under intervening mountain ranges and glaciers. The tunnel then connected to a mountain road that had to be built to Stewart, the nearest port, 32 miles away. The Granduc project achieved engineering goals unprecedented in the history of mining. In 1970, Mervyn Upham, then president of Selco Mining Corporation, invited Alan to join him as Director of Engineering in Toronto. Known by many as the best mining engineer in the industry, he was given many global assignments including the development of the mine design in 1973 of the Newmont-Mount Isa Agnew nickel project in western Australia. Back in Canada, until his retirement in 1992 from Selco, later known as BHP Billiton, he engineered the development of the Quebec Selbaie copper zinc mine and the South Bay copper zinc mine in western Ontario. All of his mines made major contributions to the well being and the economics of their respective locations. Alan was excellent at any endeavour he took on whether it was curling, tennis, golf, bridge, snooker, toastmaster and drama clubs, model trains and woodworking. He was, in particular, a smiling connoisseur of good Scotch. Alan was a member of the Professional Engineers Association of Ontario, the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, the Engineer's Club of Toronto, and the Ontario Club. Although he excelled as a mining engineer, Alan's gift of recital, particularly of the Battle of Hastings, and numerous other epic poems was closely matched by his singing of Danny Boy, performed beautifully with granddaughter Emily TAILOR/TAYLOR, a mere three weeks before his death. Exceptionally bright, kind, modest, and witty, Alan not only led the world of engineering science in some of the largest and most ambitious mines around the world, he was at all times unfailingly devoted to his wife, his children, his grandchildren and all his family and Friends. Alan is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years, Diane (Nicki) LAW (née McGLADE,) his beloved daughters Elizabeth Ann (Robert VOGTLE;) Diane Millicent (Greg DAVIES,) and Nancy-Jane (Iain TAILOR/TAYLOR;) by grandchildren Mathew, Jennifer and Laura VOGTLE; Emily and Simon TAILOR/TAYLOR, and Sean DAVIES. Alan leaves behind his two brothers in England, John Geoffrey LAW and David Thomas LAW. He is dearly loved by his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and 29 nieces and nephews. No one was blessed with more loyal or caring Friends than Alan, many spanning decades of memorable years with Alan and Nicki at the cottage in Muskoka or around the bridge table. The LAW family gratefully acknowledges the commitment and care delivered by cardiologist Dr. Anthony GRAHAM for over 25 years; and by the wonderful home care workers from the Etobicoke Community Care Access Centre. Funeral services will be held at St. Georges On-The-Hill, 4600 Dundas Street West on Tuesday, February 21, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, it was Alan's preference that any donations be directed to the St. Michael's Hospital Foundation, c/o Dr. Gordon Moe's Research Program in Congestive Heart Failure, 30 Bond Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5B 1W8

Arnold EDINBOROUGH: Editor, Arts Advocate (1922-2006)
Demobilized from the British Army after the Second World War, he came to Canada to teach at Queen's University, writes Sandra MARTIN. Later, he became editor-owner of Saturday Night and a champion of the arts
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A smart boy from a poor family, Arnold EDINBOROUGH made excellent use of his brains and personality to earn an elite British education on merit rather than pedigree. After winning the Military Cross for bravery in the Second World War, he emigrated to Canada and became a significant cultural force as editor of the Kingston Whig-Standard and Saturday Night magazine. A devout Anglican, an accomplished public speaker, raconteur, and columnist for the Financial Post magazine, Mr. EDINBOROUGH was the author of several books and the founding president and chief executive officer of the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada, a pioneering advocacy group encouraging corporations to support the arts.
He had an uncanny likeness to his friend, novelist Robertson DAVIES, with the same receding hairline and pointed Van Dyke beard. Indeed, there's a story from the 1970s about an excited airline passenger sitting beside Mr. DAVIES (newly famous because of the success of his novel Fifth Business) and lavishing him with praise during the seven-hour flight across the Atlantic, only to say on landing: "My wife will be so excited to hear that I have met Arnold EDINBOROUGH."
It was Mr. EDINBOROUGH's misfortune to be an anglophile in Canada at a time of nascent cultural nationalism. He loved the country with a passion and worked hard to nurture a climate for arts and culture. "He might have seemed a bit stuffy to subsequent editors of Saturday Night," journalist John FRASER said yesterday, referring to himself and Robert FULFORD, "but he certainly gave me a big break by publishing 'political letters from Newfoundland' when I was an undergraduate [at Memorial University]. All you need in journalism to get going is a bit of nerve and somebody to have faith in you and get you published so people can see that you can do it," he said. "Every journalist has somebody in their life who somebody took a chance on, and he was mine."
Arnold EDINBOROUGH was the younger son of Frank and Sarah Ann (née CLARK) EDINBOROUGH. His family were tenant farmers. By his grandfather's time, they had managed to acquire a small amount of property. Arnold, who won a scholarship at the age of 11 to attend Spalding Grammar School (founded by Royal Charter in 1588 and officially known as Queen Elizabeth Royal Free Grammar School) was the first EDINBOROUGH to go beyond the village school. His future wife, Letitia (Letty) Mary WOOLLEY attended Spalding School for Girls, the female academic equivalent.
They met at the annual tennis challenge between the two schools. She was a champion player, he was head boy, heavily into dramatics, and lacking a partner for the doubles competition. She offered to play with him, a decision she initially regretted because he wielded a racket with a bent elbow. They won the match and continued a casual Friendship in Cambridge, where he went on a scholarship in October of 1940 to study English at St. Catharine's College and where she trained as a nurse at Addenbrooke's Hospital. Their relationship really flourished through the correspondence they exchanged during the Second World War after he enlisted in the British Army, serving with the 23rd Field Regiment of the Royal Artillery in North Africa and then in Italy. He quickly rose to the rank of captain.
He was awarded the Military Cross for bravery for his role as a forward observation officer in the long march on Rome. The citation describes him remaining in his observation post in the "exposed flank of the battalion" during the attack on the River Gaiano, breaking up at least two counter attacks with "accurate gunfire." Later, he destroyed two enemy-held footbridges and contributed "greatly" to the speed of the advance on Medicina. "His complete disregard of his own safety was an inspiration to all," according to the citation.
Any thought of remaining in the military after the war ended evaporated after his colonel enquired whether he had the necessary funds to support himself properly as an officer in the professional army. He was demobilized in December of 1945, returned to Cambridge to resume his studies for his degree in English, married Ms. WOOLLEY on January 14, 1946, and graduated with a very respectable 2.1 ranking in 1947. After toying with the idea of working for the British Council -- the postings he was offered were in Brazil and Turkey and a teaching post in what was then Ceylon, he accepted a fortuitous offer from the ex-patriate British Shakespearean scholar G.B. Harrison to teach at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario His marks, his passion for drama and his experience teaching at the University of Lausanne during summer vacations cinched the appointment. He and his bride sailed for Canada in August of 1947.
All three of the EDINBOROUGH's children, Christine, Alistair and Sarah, were born in Kingston, where Mr. EDINBOROUGH taught at Queen's in both the normal academic year and in the summer school, and picked up courses to teach at The Royal Military College as well. Cambridge automatically bestowed a master's degree on him in 1950 to mark the third anniversary of his graduation. He went back to England in 1952 to work on a doctorate, but abandoned the advanced degree after deciding he was a popularizer and a teacher rather than a scholar, according to his youngest daughter, Sarah, an arts administrator.
Kingston was "a dour Presbyterian place," which he described in his 1991 memoir, Arnold Edinborough: An Autobiography, as "like Caesar's Gaul, divided into three parts: town, gown and military." Although each pretty much kept to itself, Mr. EDINBOROUGH managed to bridge all three, largely because of his Friendship with Robertson DAVIES.
They had both been educated in England (although Mr. DAVIES went to Oxford, not Cambridge), they shared a passion for theatre and English literature, and they both had families and small children. They differed in two major respects: Mr. DAVIES came from a wealthy literary family, and he was an exceptionally talented writer. When they met, Mr. DAVIES was the editor of The Peterborough Examiner, a newspaper owned by his father, Rupert DAVIES, and he generously introduced his younger English friend to the nascent literary community. When Mr. EDINBOROUGH left academe in 1954, he became the editor of the Kingston Whig-Standard, which was also owned by Mr. DAVIES's father.
After four years at the helm of the Whig, Mr. EDINBOROUGH resigned to move to Toronto as editor of Saturday Night Magazine, which was then owned by the flamboyant media entrepreneur Jack Kent Cooke. The two did not share an editorial vision, but Mr. EDINBOROUGH outlasted his employer by buying the magazine away from him (and mortgaging his house to do so -- a flamboyant gesture that he advised John FRASER, a later editor of the magazine, not to emulate.)
The reports on Mr. EDINBOROUGH's tenure as editor of the venerable (and now defunct) magazine vary. He had a quick succession of managing editors, including Harry Bruce, Kildare Dobbs and Jack Batten. "Arnold was an impressive figure with a goatee beard and a fine speaking voice and given to sounding off at banquets about dirty books and other issues of the day," said Mr. Dobbs in an e-mail message. "His virtues as an editor were his friendliness to talent and willingness to leave associates to run their own shows."
Those are "virtues" that he may have taken to extremes in a three-person operation that makes shoestring seem extravagant. "Arnold was the editor of record, but I did all the work," said Mr. Batten, who was managing editor from September of 1967 to April of 1968 "just long enough to know that I didn't ever want to be an editor. I wanted to be a writer."
He described his boss's "idiosyncrasy" of spending about half his time out of the office travelling, delivering speeches and encouraging random acquaintances, rather than professional writers, to send stories to the magazine. Mr. Batten put out three issues and then quit to work as a writer for The Star Weekly, which was then being edited by Peter Gzowski.
Robert Fulford followed Mr. Batten, but he insisted on being named editor in name, as well as deed. Mr. EDINBOROUGH then became publisher of Saturday Night Publications, which at the time included Monday Morning, a magazine for teachers, and Parallele, a quarterly published in French with articles translated from Saturday Night. "In the end, it was the wrong decision," Mr. EDINBOROUGH wrote in his autobiography. "Not to hire Fulford [who continued as editor until Conrad Black bought the magazine in 1987], but to think I could have the revivifying effect on the business side as I had undoubtedly had on the editorial side of Saturday Night Publications."
He finally left the publication in 1970, selling his stake for one penny to David Fry, William Nobleman and Jack Seed. He went on to write an extremely popular column on the arts in the Financial Post magazine, which dovetailed with his advocacy work with corporations at the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada, a position he held until he retired in 1989 at the age of 67.
Arnold EDINBOROUGH was born in Donnington, Lincolnshire, on August 2, 1922. He died in Oakville, Ontario, on June 2, after suffering a massive stroke during surgery for skin cancer. He was 83. Predeceased by his son, Alistair, he is survived by his wife, Letty, daughters Christine and Sarah, and six grandchildren.

THORNTON, Hugh Richard
Loving and adored father, kind and devoted husband to Bardie, Hugh passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family on October 25, 2006 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born on February 4, 1929, in Woodstock, Ontario, to Jessie Robertson and Percy Sanford THORNTON, he was the youngest of eight children. Love and appreciation of music and fine art were always encouraged in the household by his mother, an accomplished pianist, and at an early age Hugh began to show great promise in drawing, illustrating and painting. He loved to talk about his days growing up in a large family where late-night chats would turn into early morning discussions of philosophy, science, the arts, and politics. The eight children loved to play pranks on each other, build water-glass orchestras and go-carts, read together and play music. Being in a large family he learned to assume responsibility early, and at age 11, he worked as a parcel boy at Loblaws in order to buy his first bike while later he took on summer jobs delivering ice and bread. The family moved to Toronto in 1938 to the High Park area where Hugh attended Keele St. Elementary School and Humberside Collegiate. At school he excelled in art, music, and literature. He met the love of his life, Barbara BRIGHAM, when she was 15 and he 16, and four years later, they were married while Hugh was attending the Ontario College of Art in the fine art program. He switched into the commercial program when he realized he would need to be able to support a family. During college, Hugh worked steady nights at Goodyear and Stelco, paying for all of his tuition. He won two scholarships and a bursary before he graduated in 1951 and continued to work at Goodyear upon graduation. Subsequently he was employed at Rabjohn Illustrators and after 1 year there, he went to Avro Aircraft where he quickly rose to department head. In 1955, after 3 years of top-secret illustration on the Arrow aircraft program, Hugh left to start his business in partnership as Industrial Art and Publicity Associates which subsequently became Thornton Hall Limited. As an employer, he was very fair and many times in the early days had to finance the payroll unbeknownst to his employees. Usually Hugh would be the last one to close the door, well into the early morning hours, as he built a successful career as illustrator, photographer, artist, copywriter, designer, and typographer. He was a rare one-stop talent that many envied and yet he was the most unassuming man to all who knew him. During the rare moments when he would take time for himself, he would relax with reading or playing Mendelssohn, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach piano pieces. Hugh and Bardie had to be thrifty in the early years, seldom living beyond their means, but still managing to always throw great parties with their many Friends and relatives. The door was always open at the Thornton household, laughter abounded, and visiting out-of-town relatives were never expected to stay in a hotel. In 1960, they bought a cottage on Buckhorn Lake and many happy weekends were spent fishing, water-skiing and boating. After Buckhorn was sold, they bought a cottage on Boshkung Lake north of Minden, Ontario, where Hugh loved to walk in the country with his artist's pad and camera in hand, creating ideas and sketches for some his most beautifully realized landscape paintings. Hugh provided a wonderful home in Don Mills for his wife and children, and loved to go on vacation with their Friends to sunny climes during the winters. He and Bardie instilled in their children strong family values of honesty, integrity, humility, and grace. Hugh was delighted to engage in conversation with his children and extended family and to be taken to task by his kids in discussions on politics or philosophy. The bantering and humour that went on around the table, even right up until the days before his passing, will be remembered and cherished by them forever. He was very proud of his children and their spouses and his adored grandchildren. Hugh was most proud of his accomplishments that occurred in his post-retirement years when he returned to painting. His many beautiful works of art adorn the halls of the family home, and the homes of Friends. He was eternally grateful to the Minden Hills Cultural Centre where his works were regularly shown each summer at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery and where, just in October, he was awarded 1st place in the People's Choice Award at the Members Show. He leaves his beloved wife of 56 years, Barbara BRIGHAM, and their loving children David LIVINGSTONE (Paula ZINOVICH) of Victoria, British Columbia, Gerry THORNTON (Stephen MOORE) of Toronto; and Andrew THORNTON (Sandra REYNOLDS) of Barrie, Ontario. Left to grieve for their adored Grandpa are Colin, Raeanne and Richard MOORE, and Jesse and Emma LIVINGSTONE.

Medical pioneer dead at 61
Noella LECLAIR received artificial heart
Defied the odds, lived for 20 years
By Phinjo GOMBU, Staff Reporter
When Noella LECLAIR made history on May 1, 1986, as the recipient of Canada's first artificial heart, doctors gave her at most five years to live.
She proved them wrong. To the delight of her family and Friends, LECLAIR went on to live a normal, healthy and happy life for 20 years.
The resident of the Ottawa suburb of Orleans, who died Saturday at the age of 61, even opened up her own small store in the Byward market, which she ran for more than 15 years.
"She always looked at (her life) as if she had been given a second chance, which a lot of people don't get," her daughter Sophie LECLAIR- MICETICH recalled yesterday.
LECLAIR was 41 when she received a Jarvik-7 artificial heart at the Ottawa Heart Institute. A week later, she received a human heart from a 44-year-old Montreal man who had died after a traffic accident.
LECLAIR died in the same Ottawa institute.
According to her daughter, LECLAIR's heart was not functioning well in recent months, but doctors advised against another transplant.
"She took it gracefully," said LECLAIR- MICETICH. " She was happy and ready to go. She looked at the 20 years she had with us as a bonus."
Dr. Ross DAVIES, a cardiologist at the Ottawa institute who had had LECLAIR as a patient from the beginning, described her as a lovely lady, beloved by all the patients and staff.
"I don't think we would have dreamt that people would have lived more than 20 years with such good quality of life," said DAVIES.
"It has just been a remarkable story all along, very satisfying for the patient and family and very satisfying for the heart institute and the medical staff."
Born in the small community of Plantagenet, northwest of Ottawa, LECLAIR was destined to live a quiet life in Orleans with her husband, Simon, who ran a furniture business.
Before her illness, she raised nine foster children, in addition to her own daughter.
But on April 25, 1986, she suffered a heart attack that left her on life support and technically dead.
A few days' later, family members gave doctors permission to insert the Jarvik-7 artificial heart, and after a 3½ hour transplant operation led by Doctor Wilbert KEON, Canadian medical history was made.
"Heart transplantation was still somewhat young, so doing a transplant was still pretty exciting," recalled DAVIES. "It was very exciting to be involved in the first mechanical circulatory-assist device in Canada."
Back then, only the Ottawa institute performed such complex surgery, something that is now routinely performed in select hospitals across Canada.
LECLAIR's gratitude was such that she went on to become the Ottawa Heart Institute's most enthusiastic volunteer: She organized bingo games, took part in telethons and assisted doctors to help calm patients who were nervous about impending surgery by discussing her own experiences.
"At one point her doctor told me that she was (the institute's) best spokesperson, obviously because she was living proof of their capabilities," said LECLAIR- MICETICH.
DAVIES said the relationship between patient and the hospital was long and fruitful.
"Our objective when we went into this was to improve her quality of life," he said. "It turns out we couldn't have done it to a more wonderful person because not only did we help her… she returned the favour many fold both to the heart institute and the community."
Funeral services are scheduled for Monday at Saint_Joseph Church in Orleans. LECLAIR is survived by her husband, Simon, and daughter Sophie.
