Clarita de Gala DAYOT
By Trisa DAYOT and J.J. DAYOT, Page A24
Wife, mother, dentist, friend, benefactor. Born June 7, 1917, in Candelaria, the Philippines. Died December 22, 2005, of a stroke, in Toronto, aged 88.
Clarita DE GALA was born the youngest of four children. Her parents Manuel and Honesta recognized an unstoppable and confident spirit of adventure in their daughter. Clarita graduated from university as a dentist in the early 1950s: a time when women in the Philippines were not expected to drive a car, let alone practise a profession. After an ironic stint as the resident dentist for a candy factory, Clarita wanted to further her education. She was awarded the Fulbright scholarship for post-graduate studies in dentistry at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Before returning to the Philippines, Clarita drove cross-country with several girlfriends to see as much of America as she could. She followed this up with a round-the-world tour, making quick and steadfast Friends wherever she went.
When she got back home, Clarita soon married Luis Adrian DAYOT. Luis was her soul mate; a "mestizo" lawyer. The happy couple soon had two children, a daughter, Trisa, and a son, J.J. Clarita left her full-time dental practice, limiting her treatment to family and Friends and devoted her time to looking after her family. In 1971, Luis and Clarita became increasingly wary of the political situation in the Philippines under the dictator Ferdinand Marcos. The decision was made to emigrate to Toronto, Canada.
The four Dayots tried hard to rebuild their lives in their adopted country; life was not easy in their new surroundings and Clarita was very homesick. But instead of dwelling on her sadness, she soon got busy. She founded the Candelaria Association (after her birthplace) and became a founding member of the Filipino Parents' Association. She surrounded herself with individuals who shared her history and love of her native land. She also found a job with a dental supply company.
Tragedy struck in 1976 with the sudden death of Luis. Clarita became both a mother and father to Trisa and J.J., encouraging and supporting their endeavours and aspirations while continuing to work full-time. After her retirement and up until her 80th year, she was a busy and caring volunteer at the Silayan Filipino Community Centre and for the Red Cross at Sunnybrook Hospital. She also rekindled her passion for travel and visited Israel, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. When she turned 85, she travelled back to the Philippines for the last time to celebrate her birthday with family and Friends, dancing the night away with the playfulness and abandonment that had characterized her as a young woman.
Our Mom was always at her happiest in the company of others. She enthusiastically organized social events, brought people together and happily watched Friendships unfold. She kept up avid correspondence with Friends and family all over the world. She adored celebrations of all kinds, from large family birthdays to a block rosary party. Everyone was family to her; she was "Tia" (auntie) to all.
Since her death, we have learned even more about her acts of kindness: how she helped put less-fortunate relatives through school, helped others find jobs, buy their first car or furnish their first home. She never forgot her birthplace of Candelaria and continued to help new immigrants from her hometown.
In many ways it made perfect sense that Mom had helped others surpass their limits and achieve their dreams, since she herself had the opportunity to achieve so much and to live a life well beyond her time -- a life of spirited independence and indelible warmth.
Trisa and J.J. are Clarita's children.

'Loss of a giant'
Tributes pour in for the renowned Dutton-born economist.
By John MINER, Free Press Reporter and News Services, Mon., May 1, Dutton -- "It is the loss of a giant."
News of the death of world renowned economist John Kenneth GALBRAITH, 97, was greeted with sadness yesterday in his hometown, where the library bears his name and people say they've forgiven him for his 1964 book poking fun at the area.
Leafing through letters from GALBRAITH in her second-floor Main Street Dutton studio, Jenny PHILLIPS said the former advisor to U.S. presidents -- who died Saturday -- will be missed by residents.
"We got a little bit of star quality because of him," said PHILLIPS, who helped spearhead the drive to have GALBRAITH recognized with a plaque and library renaming.
"He was one of the good ones. I don't believe they make men like that anymore with morals and ethics who don't mind going to bat against anybody. He was a giant."
Tributes came in yesterday to the towering intellectual from around the world.
British Finance Minister Gordon Brown said GALBRAITH advised him and others in recent years with insights into the modern age. "He will be remembered for his erudition, his wit and eloquence, and particularly for his economic insights into our age," he said.
Senator Edward Kennedy -- GALBRAITH served his brother in the White House -- lauded GALBRAITH's "profound commitment to social justice."
"I know how much President Kennedy admired his genius, valued his Friendship and loved his extraordinary wit, and so did I," he said.
"Our affluent society is a fairer and more just society today because of Ken, and no one who knew him will ever forget him."
Free Reporter Randy RICHMOND, among the last Canadian journalists to interview GALBRAITH, said his "grace" impressed him most when he interviewed him in 2003.
"He spoke as someone who had been through a lot of wars and had a lot of wisdom. He would take verbal potshots at his enemies, but it was always with humour," he said.
At the farm where GALBRAITH was born October 15, 1908, southwest of London, owner Robert BOBIER regrets he wasn't able to take GALBRAITH up on his invitation to visit him in the U.S.
GALBRAITH had been back to the family farm several times, once for the making of a British Broadcasting Corporation film.
"He was a smart, smart man," said BOBIER.
At the farm, GALBRAITH is commemorated with an Inuit inukshuk, a rock monument.
After graduating from the University of Toronto in 1931, GALBRAITH moved to the U.S. where he earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of California.
He taught at Harvard from 1934 to 1939 and at Princeton University from 1939 to 1942.
GALBRAITH returned to Harvard in 1948, remaining active there until retiring in 1975.
He served as adviser to Democratic presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Bill Clinton and was John F. Kennedy's ambassador to India.
GALBRAITH became one of America's best-known liberals and was outspoken in his support of government action to solve social problems.
The author of more than 20 books, his 1958 work The Affluent Society caused the U.S. to reconsider its values and helped propel him into the international spotlight.
The book argued the American economy was producing individual wealth, but hadn't adequately addressed public needs such as schools and highways.
But it was a book GALBRAITH wrote while ambassador in India, The Scotch, that infuriated locals in his home area.
Yesterday, the book was repeatedly mentioned by Dutton residents, but people said they were over it.
"Time heals everything," said BOBIER.
PHILLIPS said there was nothing in the book others hadn't said, but GALBRAITH wrote it down.
"I don't think he ever intended to be rude," she said.
GALBRAITH's nephew, Jerry GALBRAITH of the Dutton area, said his uncle was particularly pleased when Dutton named its library after him.
"He always spoke about the library and wrote to us several times about it. He was quite honoured," he said.
When GALBRAITH couldn't make the trip to Canada for a plaque unveiled in his honour, the Free Press's RICHMOND interviewed him at his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The one question GALBRAITH avoided answering was what he saw as his own legacy.
"He said that was up to other people to decide. He never wanted to talk about his own heroics," RICHMOND said.
In that 2003 interview, GALBRAITH said his greatest political accomplishment was during the Second World War when he was a central part of the successful effort to keep inflation under control.
Asked what he would rank as his greatest failure, GALBRAITH replied: "That is not my disposition, but I would have no doubt that in the United States, and also in Canada, our greatest failure has been in the very large number of people who live in poverty, deprivation, concern as to life next week, next year."
John Kenneth Galbraith
Born: October 15, 1908, in Iona Station.
Education: B.S., University of Toronto, 1931; M.S., Ph.D., University of California, 1934.
Experience: From 1934 to 1939, he was an instructor and tutor at Harvard. Also taught at the University of California and at Princeton before returning to Harvard in 1948 as a lecturer in economics. Promoted to professor in 1949 and in 1959 became the Warburg Professor of Economics. He retired in 1975.
GALBRAITH organized and oversaw price controls during the Second World War as deputy administrator in the Office of Price Administration. President Kennedy appointed GALBRAITH ambassador to India, where he served from 1961 to 1963.
Family: Wife, Catherine Atwater GALBRAITH. Sons, Alan, Peter and James.
Quote: "There is no hope for liberals if they seek only to imitate conservatives, and no function either." -- From a 1992 article in Modern Maturity.

Dismissed as iconoclast, GALBRAITH truly a seer
By Shawn McCARTHY, Page B1
New York -- John Kenneth GALBRAITH produced no elegant mathematical models to support his economic analysis; there is no Galbraithian school that has applied his theories to the 21st-century world of globalized markets and complex financial derivatives.
But knowingly or not, skeptics about current conventional economic wisdom and non-believers in the self-correcting mechanisms of the market owe an enormous debt to the Canadian-born, Harvard-bred economist.
Mr. GALBRAITH died Saturday at the age of 97 in a hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
His most recent contribution to the dismal science came just two years ago with The Economics of Innocent Fraud, a short book that challenged modern orthodoxy by questioning the ability of markets to regulate themselves and of corporations to govern themselves.
It was a theme Mr. GALBRAITH had been advocating publicly since the publishing of his bestseller The Affluent Society in 1958.
In his numerous books, the economist, who began his career as a New Deal bureaucrat during modern capitalism's worst crisis, anticipated speculative bubbles like the dot-com frenzy -- and the unsustainable froth in the current real estate market -- as well as corporate scandals of the Enron and WorldCom variety far better than most mainstream economists have.
His insight that a well-functioning economy requires "countervailing powers" -- enunciated in his 1952 opus, American Capitalism -- anticipated the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, aimed at reforming corporate governance in the aftermath of the scandals.
Still, modern business economists tend to dismiss Mr. GALBRAITH as an iconoclast, a political economist whose critiques may be somewhat cogent but whose progressive prescriptions are wholly unworkable.
He is compared unfavorably to his long-time rival, Milton Friedman, the conservative University of Chicago economist who won the Nobel Prize in 1976 for his work on consumption analysis, monetary history and the complexity of economic stabilization policies.
But then Mr. GALBRAITH tended to dismiss modern economics and its reliance on mathematical models that he believed failed to account for human nature, less-than-perfect market information or unequal power relationships.
And in his life-long battle with conventional wisdom -- a phrase he coined -- Mr. GALBRAITH appeared to rarely doubt the superiority of his own vision.
In an interview at his Cambridge home last year after the publication of a biography by Harvard University colleague Richard Parker, the long-time lecturer retained his authoritative tone, delivering answers to questions as if imparting lessons to an undergraduate.
But he frankly acknowledged his own arrogance, leavening it with self-deprecating humour and epigrammatic sarcasm. "Humility," he once quipped, "is not always compatible with the truth."
A central concern of Mr. GALBRAITH's life work was the need in a healthy society for a proper balance between private consumption and public good. It is a theme that echoes today as governments and global institutions look beyond gross domestic product per capita to educational opportunity and environmental health in comparing quality of life among countries.
Mr. GALBRAITH achieved his pre-eminence in the optimistic years of the 1960s, when he advised the Democratic administrations of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson on government programs aimed at eradicating poverty.
Asked to sum up a half-century of his work in a sentence or two, he refrained from sarcasm and took a mechanically assisted breath before uttering what would sound to many a modern ear as an anachronistic philosophy.
"As regards the United States and all political entities, there should be a diminution in concern about economic well being. I'm for a socially pain-free, decently egalitarian society."
But for the last 30 years of his life, Mr. GALBRAITH was increasingly a voice in wilderness, as the conventional wisdom grew ever more skeptical of the ability of government to intervene constructively in the economy, and ever more confident in the marketplace.
In writing Mr. GALBRAITH's biography, Mr. Parker was candidly aiming to reclaim the economist's status as one of the great thinkers of the 20th century.
Mr. Parker named several current economists who -- like Mr. GALBRAITH before them -- stretched the bounds of mainstream economics to rethink mainstream models and axioms and look to human behavioural theory to explain distribution of scarce resources.
Chief among them is Harvard University professor Amartya Sen, a Nobel Prize winner for his work on development economics. Prof. Sen credited Mr. GALBRAITH's American Capitalism for helping him appreciate the great importance of competing powers in societies.
Prof. Sen has compared Mr. GALBRAITH's impact on modern economics with William Shakespeare's influence on the English language.
"It's like reading Hamlet and deciding it's full of quotations," he is quoted as saying. "You realize where they came from."
