Margaret GIBSON, Writer: (1948-2006)
Author of Opium Dreams and The Butterfly Ward produced works of singular vision, writes Sandra MARTIN. It was an intense and brilliant output that was too often sidelined by the march of mental illness
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
There were many Margaret GIBSONs and all of them were complicated. She was like a prism that could shimmer with refracted brilliance one moment and then fracture into dangerous shards the next. As a writer, she was like a foreign correspondent reporting from the front lines of insanity, taking readers places where most of us have never been in collections of stories such as The Butterfly Ward and Sweet Poison, screenplays such as Outrageous, Ada and For the Love of Aaron and in her only published novel, Opium Dreams, which won the Chapters/Books in Canada first-novel award in 1997.
Although she self-diagnosed as autistic after she read Donna Williams's memoir, Nobody Nowhere, Ms. GIBSON was probably a paranoid schizophrenic. In one of her "good" periods in the early 1990s she described what it felt like to have a mental illness. "It is not so much that madness… is a muddied eyehole, but rather it is seeing things too sharply, clearer than clear, a light that fills up your eyeholes and is, in the end, blinding with its visions."
Ms. GIBSON worked with some top literary editors, including Ellen SELIGMAN at McClelland and Stewart, Phyllis BRUCE at Harper Collins and Barry CALLAGHAN of Exile Editions. "All writers write out of their experiences, but this was like an open vein," said Mr. CALLAGHAN. "If ever a writer in this country hit on the terrors that seem to strike at women who are defenceless and vulnerable," it was Ms. GIBSON. " She was frightening in her presence and she was frightening in her work because she was really in touch with the madness that was loose inside herself" and by extension, in "metropolitan life." "Losing the words" to describe her terrors was often a signal that her illness was on the march again. And that made knowing Ms. GIBSON a desperate struggle to keep her afloat without being sucked into the whirlpool that was her life. As her loyal friend, Shirley FLAVELLE, said: "She was a 24/7 girl. You could only live with her when you were young."
Margaret Louise GIBSON was the second of five children of Bell Telephone engineer Dane GIBSON and his wife Audrey (neé McCULLOUGH.) She grew up on a small rural property on what was then the eastern edge of Scarborough, Ontario, on land her father, an air force tail gunner in the Second World War, had been able to buy with a veteran's grant. Her older sister Dana was bright, gregarious and an excellent student. Her twin sisters, Lenore and Deirdre, were a younger playful unit. Margaret, or Margie as her family called her, was the solitary dreamy one.
"We were a typical Canadian family except that there was one daughter who was always ill, her whole life," said Deirdre GIBSON, a planner. Margaret GIBSON herself once said that "colours hurt" when she was a child. "A leaf was a kaleidoscope," she said. "Starting kindergarten damn near killed me. But I was never lonely I'm a one-piece band." Puberty is difficult for most adolescents but for Ms. GIBSON it was catastrophic. Always withdrawn, she started slashing her arms and eventually attempted suicide. She spent about a year at the Homewood Health Centre in Guelph, Ontario, experiences that she would later use as a trigger for her fiction. After she was released, her parents sold the beloved family property and moved to a housing development so she could start "over again" in a fresh environment.
The new school was even more disaffecting than the old one, but Margaret did make Friends with two alienated classmates, Shirley FLAVELLE and Craig Russell EADIE. He later became well known as the female impersonator, Craig RUSSELL. A bisexual, he was addicted to drug and drinks and died of an Aids-related stroke in 1990.
In September of 1971, Ms. GIBSON married Stuart GILBOORD, a young man she had met briefly six years earlier through her father. "She was damn interesting to talk with," Mr. GILBOORD said, adding that she was an attractive woman who wore heavy makeup as a defence against the world. Their son Aaron was born on November 22, 1972.
At the time, Ms. GIBSON's psychiatrist was encouraging her to write as therapy. "I would come home from work and we would talk for three or four hours about her writing," said Mr. GILBOORD. Her concentration was all-consuming and obsessive and she used phrases that were brilliant, but the process was "draining."
Mr. GILBOORD took some of his wife's stories to a script supervisor he knew at TVOntario. She showed them to Michael MacKLEM of Oberon Press in Ottawa. Ms. GIBSON's stories subsequently appeared in Oberon's annual Best Canadian Stories anthologies and in a solo collection, The Butterfly Ward, under her married name, Margaret Gibson GILBOORD. (She and Mr. GILBOORD, who now works for a call centre, divorced when their son was a toddler.)
Reviews were exultant. William FRENCH, then literary editor of The Globe and Mail, described her as a "writer of burning intensity and rare vision, an accomplished explorer of hidden caves of the mind." This debut shared the City of Toronto Book Award in 1977 with Margaret Atwood's Lady Oracle.
Meanwhile, Ms. GIBSON's story Making It (from The Butterfly Ward) about her Friendship with Craig RUSSELL was made into the low-budget film Outrageous. Starring Mr. RUSSELL as himself and Hollis McLAREN as Ms. GIBSON, it was the hit of the 1977 Toronto film festival.
Former Chatelaine editor Rona Maynard was a young writer at Flare magazine at the time. Intrigued by both Ms. GIBSON and The Butterfly Ward, she began writing a profile of the "hot" writer. "She had a deep Lauren Bacall voice, kohl-rimmed eyes, an air of world-weary glamour," smoked long black cigarettes in a holder and "had a burning passion for language unlike anything I have ever seen," said Ms. Maynard.
The two women became Friends, but when the profile was about to be published, Ms. GIBSON had her lawyer send a threatening letter to the magazine, and "so she dropped out of my life." At the time, Ms. GIBSON was also immersed in a bitter custody battle with her former husband. She turned some of that experience into Sweet Poison, a collection of stories published by Phyllis Bruce at HarperCollins. Another story was turned into the television movie, For the Love of Aaron.
Mr. GILBOORD provides a convincing anti-story to Ms. GIBSON's claims of abuse, saying that he and his father-in-law were in constant communication with each other and with child-welfare officials trying to protect Aaron and manage Ms. GIBSON's erratic behaviour.
"She tried the best she could to raise me," said Aaron GILBOORD, who is now 33 and living with his wife and three sons in Manitoba, where he works as a juvenile counsellor with young offenders. He left home when he was 16, but remained in touch with his mother and his father. Ms. GIBSON wrote a poem about her son, when he was 5, saying in part, "and to phone the doctor when I a.m. crazed and always you bring my pill bottles/offering them up with renewed hope each time." The poem appeared in Aurora: New Canadian Writing, edited by Morris Wolfe. By the late 1980s, Ms. GIBSON was living in a subsidized unit in a housing co-op. That's how she met her second husband, Juris RASA, an architectural draughtsman who was living in the same development. Apparently, she showed up at his door one day to ask for bandages because her fingers were bleeding from banging on the keys on her typewriter. Eventually, they moved in together and married. He helped her learn to use a computer and to make the transition from short stories to the longer form of the novel.
Her literary Friends, including the late Timothy Findlay and his partner, screenwriter William Whitehead, and journalist June Callwood helped her get grants to support her writing and introduced her to agent Dean Cooke, who agreed to represent her in the early 1990s. He believes that Mr. RASA made it possible for her to write Opium Dreams, the novel that Ellen Seligman published at McClelland and Stewart.
"I was always amazed by her stamina and staying power because I anticipated the editing of the book would be hard for her," said Ms. Seligman, who came to treasure their long conversations on the telephone. "I think writing sustained her, more so than any other form of nourishment."
The novel was a literary success, but Ms. GIBSON was sinking again into mental illness. She and Mr. RASA separated in the late 1990s after she repeatedly accused him of trying to murder her. He died about a year ago. Ms. Maynard had reconnected with Ms. GIBSON in the mid 1990s during one of her many episodes of instability and formed an unofficial support group with Mr. Cooke, Mr. Wolfe and Ms. Callwood. "She was getting farther and farther away from reality," said Ms. Maynard.
About four years ago, Ms. GIBSON was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. She was seeing an oncologist, but stopped chemotherapy, probably because she was afraid of the side effects of her complex combination of medications.
Margaret Louise GIBSON was born in Scarborough, Ontario, on June 4, 1948. She died of metastasized breast cancer in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on February 25, 2006. She was 57. She is survived by her son Aaron, his wife Jennifer LAMBERT, their sons Logan, Drew and Ayden, and her three sisters Dana, Lenore and Deirdre and their families.

MORRISON, Hugh Whitney, B.A. (Alta,) B.A. (Hons) M.A. (Oxon)
Peacefully, in his 99th year, May 23, 2006, at the Aurora Retirement Centre, Aurora, Ontario. Hugh had an extraordinary and very full life. Born May 15, 1908 in Vegreville, Alberta, he earned his B.A. (Hons.) (language and literature) at the University of Alberta, Edmonton and was named a Rhodes Scholar in 1930. At his Oxford College, Merton, he read literature and political theory from 1930 to 1932, with post-graduate studies in 1933. After serving as a reporter at the Toronto Star and editor of the Star Weekly from 1934 to 1937, Hugh was appointed the first Director of Talks and Public Affairs at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, serving in Ottawa and Toronto from 1937 to 1943. Thereafter, he worked as Assistant to the President of a Central and South American airline out of New York until 1947. While in that position, he was recruited to assist 'Intrepid', Canada's spy master Sir William STEPHENSON, by reporting wartime activities of German agents in Central and South America. (In Hugh's library is a copy of A Man Called Intrepid by Stephenson dedicated 'To Hugh, my comrade in arms'.) From 1946 to 1948 he was a partner in a public relations firm in New York. Then he rejoined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in its 'Overseas ShortWave Broadcasting Service' in Montreal as its first Director for Latin America. He returned to Toronto in 1952 as the first Director of Public Relations for the United Way, serving until 1972. On retirement, he developed a diploma course in Public Relations at Humber College and taught there until 1983. Always a keen scholar of English literature, particularly Shakespeare, Hugh wrote Shakespeare, his Daughters and his Tempest, published in 1963. He also wrote Oxford Today and the Canadian Rhodes Scholarships, published in 1958. Hugh was the oldest surviving Canadian Rhodes Scholar. Unfortunately, his autobiography remains unfinished. While at Oxford Hugh played hockey for the Spengler (European) Cup-winning Oxford teams in 1931 and 1932. Recently, he was invited to Oxford for a reunion of Oxford hockey teams and presented with a replica of his playing jersey. Hugh outlived three wives (Florentine St. Clair SHERMAN, Patricia LeMoine FITZGERALD, daughter of the artist, and Marita LAFLÈCHE) and one companion, Mary-Lucile Getchell FRENCH, called 'Ceeley', with whom he was reunited after an interval of 62 years they had met while he was at Oxford and she was in Paris on her 'junior year abroad' from Smith College. Hugh is survived by his loving granddaughter Elizabeth St. Clair Morrison FIELD (Adam CHRISTIAN) of Buffalo, N.Y. daughter of his only child, Hugh., Peter St. Clair who died in 1998, and his nephew Hugh John BOLTON of Edmonton. Hugh's extensive library was donated in lots over many years to the University of Alberta and his Oxford College, with assistance from his long-time friend, book dealer David MASON of Toronto. His extensive Shakespearean studies collection was gratefully accepted in 2004 by doctoral candidates in the University of Toronto's English Department. His extensive memorabilia, including transcripts of wartime and other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation shows Hugh produced, has been gratefully accepted by Library and Archives Canada (finding aid No. 2283). For more on Hugh's career, his publications and honours received, see the entry in the 2006 Whose Who in Canada. A memorial service will be held at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W. (2 stoplights west of Yonge St.), Toronto on Sunday, May 28, 2006 at 11: 00 a.m., reception following there.

Jim enjoyed travel, and as a race car enthusiast, he and Friends made many a road trip to the international venues of the sport. One of his favourite holidays was a warm break to the Caribbean to roam the beaches and sail among the islands. Jim was an avid reader and loved maritime history, animals, and music. Jim's honest and gentle manner, his broad intellect, and his keen sense of humour will colour our many fond memories. To know Jim was to love and trust him - he was a wonderful person. The support and compassion shown to Carol and Jim by their many colleagues and Friends, and by the staff at the Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre and the Markham-Stouffville Hospital is greatly appreciated. In lieu of flowers, Friends and relatives can make a donation to the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or to Habitat for Humanity.
