Virginia COOPER, Psychotherapist (1944-2006)
Gifted analyst who soothed the consciences of a cadre of Bay Street bankers, lawyers and executives was driven by resentment and haunted by guilt
By Alex DOBROTA, Page S9
Toronto -- The Toronto psychotherapist Virginia COOPER melded the adventurer and the poet within to tame the emotional torments of Bay Street. Working in an office filled with the scent of pink roses, she attracted Canada's top corporate brass. Investment bankers, lawyers and executive officials all fell under the spell of her soft-spoken ways.
But her success had come only at the end of a long and often unhappy quest.
Dr. COOPER's taste for adventure took her from an unhappy life as the manager of a family-owned fashion store in her native England, to the Mediterranean, as well as Africa and the Middle East. She wrote poetry and published a series of musings on the workings of the human mind. In later years, she designed theatre costumes for the Toronto Arts and Letters Club and sat on the board of directors of Tarragon Theatre.
Those who knew her appreciated her elegance in dress -- she preferred muted shades of brown and black -- and her knack for putting strangers at ease. She could relate to a teenager as easily as she could disarm the apprehensions of a jittery client. "She was always interested in people's behaviour," said John McKELLAR, a lawyer who became one of Doctor COOPER's closest Friends.
As a psychotherapist, she followed the Freudian method, spending long periods of time with her patients and weaving her practice around the themes of guilt and envy -- two forces that also shaped part of her own life.
Virginia COOPER grew up on the northern fringes of London in a small English town that happened to be home to MGM British Studios complex and to the Associated British Studios. It was there that 2001: A Space Odyssey, Indiana Jones and Star Wars were filmed.
The only child of a family of merchants, her parents owned two successful high-end clothing stores that also sold stage costumes. But during the 1960s, Virginia's father fell ill and lost his sight, forcing her to drop out of high school to help her mother at the store. While it was a twist of fate Doctor COOPER would resent for many years. She started out as a helper in one of the stores and, perhaps driven by bitterness, quickly took over the business from her mother.
"She always felt she was unsuited for business," said Doctor Yvonne VERBEETEN, a close friend.
She married a British man, but they were divorced within a year. During the 1970s, she began a relationship with a Syrian man. On a flight to Syria to see him, she sat next to her future husband, Kenneth OSWELL, then a Middle East regional partner at the accounting firm Touche Ross. The two chatted throughout the duration of the flight. "We were the last persons to leave the plane," Mr. OSWELL recalled.
They lost touch for several years only to meet again in London in 1976. They married the next year. By that time, Doctor COOPER had made up her mind to trade her small-town existence for a more exciting lifestyle at the side of a successful accountant who she would follow throughout the Middle East and much of Africa.
She sold the family business, her parents' only source of income, for £5,000, Mr. OSWELL said. At the time, the business had downsized to only one store that brought in profits of around £4,000.
Throughout the 1970s, Doctor COOPER discovered the joys of the Mediterranean from a base in Beirut where her husband was working. She often travelled to Athens to admire the classical monuments there and together the couple toured Africa extensively.
Dr. COOPER recorded her travel impressions in a series of poems that were published in Toronto in 1983 in a collection titled The River Within. One of her poems condemned apartheid in South Africa; another explored the Middle Eastern conflict through the theme of the 1976 assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Lebanon.
Amid growing unrest in the Middle East, Doctor COOPER and her husband departed for Canada in 1980, her conscience all the while troubled by having abandoned an elderly parent. "She felt guilty that she left her mother behind, and that she came here," Doctor VERBEETEN said.
It is not surprising that Doctor COOPER returned often to England, visits that multiplied during the late 1990s after her mother became seriously ill. Her death came after a protracted battle with stomach cancer, Doctor VERBEETEN added.
Mr. OSWELL had a different version of events. "She and her mother didn't get along that well," he said. "They had a long difference of opinions on many subjects."
By all accounts, Doctor COOPER never got over having to quit school and always wanted to pursue her education. In 1984, she followed her dream and enrolled at the University of Toronto.
In 1985, she was among the first group of women to be admitted to the Toronto Arts and Letters Club. The institution had been founded in 1908 as a men-only bastion and integration was daunting, recalled writer Margaret McBURNEY, who was part of the same group. "The majority had voted to have women in, but not everybody wanted us there so we treaded carefully," she said. For example, one particular man always sat a table nearest to the exit. "If a woman sat at his table, he could beat a hasty retreat."
Dr. COOPER weathered those tensions with characteristic grace. As a lover of books who enjoyed the works of Thomas Hardy and Emily Dickinson, she was an accomplished belletrist who could discuss the nuances of literature but who could also expound on the history of the First World War. "She just fit in quietly and nicely," Ms. McBURNEY said.
During the late 1980s and early 1990s, Doctor COOPER continued her pursuit of higher education and completed a masters degree and a doctorate in educational psychology. "She worked extremely hard," said Pat FAIRHEAD, a painter and friend. "She was intense&hellip She wanted it."
In the meantime, her marriage was disintegrating. She and Mr. OSWELL were divorced in 1990, around the same time she started her psychotherapy practice, and she channelled her energy into her work.
Her office mate described Doctor COOPER as a dedicated practitioner who went out of her way to accommodate the schedule of her clients. She never sought out the bankers and corporate officials that came to rely on her advice and care, Doctor Klaus WIEDERMANN said. They found her.
"Somebody who works with Bay Street bankers… has to be somebody who's not threatened," he said. "I think she was able to say, okay, these are [just] people.
"There were a lot of lawyers and bankers, but I think that had more to do with a circle of referrals. It means that she was able to work with people like that in ways that made them feel comfortable. She had the ability to make people feel very relaxed and welcome early on."
Dr. COOPER's work with a patient could span years as she attempted to uncover the intricacies of the mother-child relationship and how that affected the person's existence. This involved drawing from her own experience and personality to give direction to her work, Doctor WIEDERMANN said. She continued to treat clients until the very end of her life, carrying out interviews by telephone when illness confined her to her apartment.
"She was in some way trying to give meaning to her life," Doctor WIEDERMANN said. "It gave her a sense that she was doing something that was meaningful and beneficial to others. It gave her a sense that she was participating in the world."
In her will, Doctor COOPER gave $500,000 to Woodsworth College -- money she wished to be turned into bursaries for adult women who want to pursue higher education. She also donated $500,000 to the Ontario Arts Foundation for costume designers in mid-career wishing to enrich their craft in terms of research and travel.
Virginia COOPER was born in Borehamwood, England, on January 27, 1944. She died of stomach cancer in Toronto on August 27, 2006.

Helen ALLEN, Journalist (1907-2006)
She laboured for decades to improve the lot of unwanted children, many of whom were better off because of her efforts, writes Sandra MARTIN. At the end of the Vietnam War she also helped rescue orphans in Saigon
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
The concept may seem bizarre today, but in its era, the Toronto newspaper column Today's Child was an innovative force intended to improve the lives of thousands of emotionally needy and often physically damaged children. In the early 1960s, back in the days when having a child "out of wedlock" was socially unacceptable and before reliable contraception or abortions were generally available, many young women gave their unplanned babies up for adoption. The ranks of healthy infants were swelled by older children who had been abandoned by parents unable or unwilling to raise their own offspring or who had been removed from dangerous situations. Many of these "hard-to-place" children trundled from one foster home to another or marked birthday after birthday in orphanages and other residential institutions.
Helen ALLEN, a journalist who became a crusader for adoption, believed that all children deserved parents and a home to call their own. For nearly 20 years, she devoted her energies to the task through her column Today's Child in The Telegram in Toronto and the long-running television program Family Finder. Although, nobody knows for certain how many of these adoptions were successful, there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that many, many children were happier and healthier because of Ms. ALLEN's actions.
"Some social workers were very reluctant at the thought of exposing children to the public in this way, because it was an invasion of privacy, but I was all for it," recalled Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, a former social worker and adoption supervisor who knew first-hand the dire circumstances of these children's lives. She and Ms. ALLEN became colleagues and good Friends, sharing the same dedication and sense of humour.
The late media mogul John BASSETT, who was the last publisher of The Telegram, considered Ms. ALLEN's long-running adoption column "her real life's work." Ms. ALLEN "has helped this country enormously by giving new hope and new opportunities to the nation's richest resource, our children," he wrote in a tribute to her in 1982, and "nothing has given me greater pride than being associated with her in this task."
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born near Saskatoon, the only child of a Presbyterian minister and a school teacher. The family eventually settled in Aurora, north of Toronto, as her father moved from one congregation to another. He died of meningitis when Helen was five and her mother worked as a supply teacher to support them both. Ms. ALLEN later described her childhood as happy, although she regretted that there was never enough money to buy her a bicycle. It was only much later that she looked back as an adult and realized that "it's too bad to be an only child, too bad not to have a Dad."
After graduating from high school in 1925, Ms. ALLEN moved to Toronto to do a four-year degree in modern languages (French and German) at University College at the University of Toronto. By then, her widowed mother had married a man named PALMER, so Ms. ALLEN boarded with a family named GRIFFITHS while she attended university, financed with $2000 from her mother's savings. That's how she met the GRIFFITHS' daughter, Phyllis, who became a classmate, then a journalism colleague and a dear friend and housemate until she died more than 50 years later in 1978.
At U of T, Ms. ALLEN joined the German club, which turned out to be a lively collection of people, including professors Geoffrey HOLT and Barker FAIRLEY, who got together on a weekly basis to sing German songs. An older cousin, who worked on the student newspaper, The Varsity, introduced Ms. ALLEN to the editor, a young man named Charles STACEY. (A year older, he was destined for a stellar career as a military historian and became very well known as a biographer of Prime Minister Mackenzie King.) "Somehow I found myself accepting an assignment to cover a freshie tea that first week. It showed up on the front page, without a word changed, and I was hooked," she presciently told Judith ADAM/ADAMS, the author of the 1982 Ontario government publication, Today's Child and Helen ALLEN.
After graduating in 1929, Ms. ALLEN went to work as a reporter for The Telegram, a newspaper founded in 1876 by John Ross ROBERTSON as a vehicle to promote British and Imperial sentiments. For the next three decades, Ms. ALLEN did general assignment reporting, reviewed movies, covered political events and criminal trials, and edited the women's pages. In covering the 1939 Royal Tour of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth she wrote: "Everyone who has seen her is talking about the Queen. The Queen's smile. The Queen's charm. The Queen's beauty. The Queen's lovely gowns."
What made her name, however, was an assignment that she took on reluctantly in 1964 to write an adoption column for the paper. Instead of being the brainchild of one person, the idea came about as a confluence of incidents, experience and inspiration dating back to the early 1960s when The Telegram ran a front-page story about a young boy being publicly beaten by his father on a downtown street corner. Publisher John BASSETT assigned reporter Andrew MacFARLANE to investigate and write an article on child abuse.
Mr. MacFARLANE contacted the office of Doctor James BAND, the deputy minister of welfare in Ontario, who supplied huge amounts of information on child protection services and took Mr. MacFARLANE to visit an orphanage which housed dozens of children three years of age and under. Mr. MacFARLANE quickly realized that many of these children had short attention spans, played aggressively, and, despite being "cuddled" by volunteers, appeared lacking in warmth and curiosity. Both men believed these children needed families and permanent homes, if they were to have any chance of growing up emotionally healthy.
In 1964, Doctor BAND sought out Mr. MacFARLANE, who by then was The Telegram's managing editor, and suggested he run an "advertising" feature to make the public aware of the plight of these forgotten children. Both Mr. MacFARLANE and Mr. BASSETT took up the idea enthusiastically and assigned the column to Ms. ALLEN, telling her to contact the more than 50 regional Children's Aid Societies that operated in Ontario under the Child Welfare Act, find some children who were waiting for families, and run their pictures and write about them in the paper. The plan was to run Today's Child for a few weeks and check the response.
Children's Aid Societies, which are protective by definition, were largely horrified at the idea of parading children, along with their physical and emotional problems, in a public newspaper. To them, the column reeked of "freak shows" at carnivals. Only three were willing to participate -- Hamilton, Kenora and Toronto. Although disappointing, the response was strong enough to give Ms. ALLEN enough children to produce a daily column for three weeks.
The first child was a 15-month-old girl of mixed race named Hope, a difficult placement in those homogeneous days before the immigration rules relaxed and Canada had an official multiculturalism policy. Nevertheless, 40 prospective adoptive parents wrote in response to the story about Hope. Their letters were passed along to the Children's Aid Society for screening, assessing and processing. "I wrote abut 23 children in those first Today's Child columns that summer," Ms. ALLEN recalled years later, "and when the results were finally assessed, 18 of those youngsters found homes."
After three years of daily columns, Today's Child expanded to other daily and weekly papers throughout Ontario. The following year, Ms. ALLEN proposed doing a television version of the column based on the daily Ben Hunter Program in California, which delivered commercials for a variety of products, saving one day a week for children wanting to be adopted. Armed with a tape of the American show, Ms. ALLEN and Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, then Ontario Adoption Co-ordinator, approached CFTO, the Toronto television station that was part-owned by Mr. BASSETT. "It took them all of 15 minutes to make up their minds," Ms. ALLEN reported later. Family Finder, which ran commercial-free, debuted in the fall of 1968 and for years was the longest-running program on the channel.
When The Telegram folded in 1971, the Ontario government hired Ms. ALLEN as an information officer in the Ministry of Community and Social Services. She continued to write the column three times a week (which was syndicated by the government to more than 20 daily newspapers including The Toronto Star), do the television program and speak about adoption to community and service groups.
In the early 1970s, television and newspaper reporting from Vietnam publicized the plight of many of the children who had become victims of the continuing conflict. The orphanages in Saigon were overflowing with abandoned or parentless children. Social changes, including a declining birth rate, had put an end to the baby surplus of a decade before. That fact, plus the human desire to help needy children, had lots of North Americans flying to Vietnam and trying to pick up babies in exchange for cash or services.
The local adoption agencies were floundering, so the Ontario Ministry of Social and Community Services sent Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH and Ms. ALLEN to Saigon to work with the Vietnamese. As the Viet Cong advanced and the Americans pulled out, the two women rescued close to 60 children, brought them to Canada and found homes for them. "The deputy minister told me, 'if we are going to do this, we will give it the same service we give our own children,' Ms. LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH said.
Ms. ALLEN received many honours, including being named to the Order of Canada and an honorary doctorate from York University and the Award of Merit from the City of Toronto. In the late 1970s, she was at an Order of Canada reception when she encountered fellow laureate and University of Toronto military historian Charles STACEY. " When I was at college, I dated Charles, who was then editor of the Varsity. He was in fourth year and I was in second," she told Ms. ADAM/ADAMS. "He went off to Oxford and then Princeton; I went on to the Tely as a reporter."
Ms. ALLEN and Colonel STACEY, a widower, renewed their Friendship and their affection for each other and were married in a small wedding at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Toronto on October 3, 1980. The bride was 73, and the groom 74. A little more than a year later, she officially retired from Today's Child (Judith ADAM/ADAMS took over the column for another seven years) and Family Finder, but continued to spend two days a week answering mail and writing Adoption Bulletins while her husband wrote his books.
The STACEYs were a very companionable couple. They loved to entertain at small dinner parties at Massey College, to read Jane Austen novels aloud to each other and to travel. Col. STACEY died suddenly of a heart attack in November of 1989, after nearly a decade of marriage. She continued to live in their Rosedale apartment until she suffered a heart attack and a fall late in 2002, and moved into the Leaside Retirement Residence.
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born in Dundurn, Saskatchewan., on August 16, 1907. She died in Toronto of congestive heart failure on November 9. She was 99. Predeceased by her husband Charles STACEY and by her dear friend Phyllis GRIFFITHS, she is survived by her god-daughter Nadine BELL and her family.
