CHALMERS, Clarice
By Anne GAUNTLY, Barbara HANKINSON, Bryce McKIEL and John CAIRNS, Page A22
Wife, mother, grandmother, philanthropist. Born December 22, 1920, in Manchester, England. Died December 5, 2005 in Toronto of natural causes, aged 84.
Those of us who came to know Clarice after 1977, knew her as a woman fully engaged in her community. She was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Toronto and given the Order of Ontario. Clarice was very proud of these honours (she liked to be referred to as Doctor Chalmers) but she was modest about her achievements.
This was the Clarice we knew. What we didn't know was much about her earlier years but we suspected they had not been happy. She was born shortly after the First World War into a family that seemed to have preferred boys more than an only girl. She married early and, by the beginning of the Second World War, she sailed away with a small son from the uncertainty of England to the safety of North America.
Some years later, in Montreal, Clarice married again and had two more children, another son and a daughter. This marriage also dissolved and she found herself a single mother with a young daughter to raise, which meant working; sometimes she had two jobs, just to keep up.
And then there was Wallace.
Wallace CHALMERS was the son of Floyd and Jean CHALMERS and the brother of Joan CHALMERS. He had also been married and was the father of four adopted children. Wallace was an engineer, an inventor, and a very successful businessman. Clarice and Wallace quickly became a loving, devoted, happy couple. They were married in Toronto in 1977 and for Clarice the world changed dramatically. Wallace taught and Clarice learned the responsibility, and indeed the privilege, of helping others through significant gifts of money.
Then Wallace developed cancer of the spine. There were periods of both remission and hospitalization. During these years Wallace established the Trauma Centre at Saint Michael's Hospital and funded a teaching position at the hospital. Clarice became a volunteer. Wallace died there in palliative care, at 64, in 1987. They had been married barely 10 years.
After Wallace's death, Clarice became very much her own person in the world of philanthropy. She was most proud of her volunteering and gift-giving at Saint Michael's. She continued support of the Emergency Department and the Palliative Care Unit but she also developed a watchful eye for the wellbeing of patients and staff. She was very aware of the devotion and bravery of nurses during the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and she established the Clarice Chalmers Nursing Award to honour them. For patients in palliative care and in other units, she had afghans knitted so they might feel warm, perhaps even cherished.
At the same time, Clarice was well aware of Wallace's interests. Wallace had established the Chalmers Engineering Design Awards just before he died; Clarice endowed the awards and set up the award dinners. She thoroughly enjoyed quizzing the successful students about their prize-winning designs. In some cases, she supported students in their further studies.
Together with the CHALMERS family, she was very supportive of the arts in Canada. But she also gave on her own. Among her last major gifts is the statue of Glenn Gould, seated on a park bench, in front of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation studios in Toronto.
By the spring of 2005, Clarice could no longer care for herself and very reluctantly moved to the nursing facility of Belmont House. There were still moments of her agile humour and her big smile but they became fewer and fewer. Then, with typical modesty, she slipped away.
Anne, Barbara, Bryce and John are four Toronto Friends of Clarice CHALMERS.

HANLEY, Paula Stark
By Leslie MacKINLAY, Kathy BUTTON and Patty DOANE, Page A24
Mother, wife, daughter, adventurer. Born November 30, 1966, in Toronto. Died May 29 in Toronto, of breast cancer, aged 39.
Paula lived a quintessentially Canadian upbringing, attending Stephen Leacock Collegiate where her athleticism earned her a place on the field hockey and ski teams. She attended the University of Western Ontario where she perfected the essence of "work hard, play hard, live life." Studying economics landed Paula a successful career on Bay Street, much of it with Citibank. Her smile was constant, along with that mischievous twinkle in her eyes -- Paula refused to take herself too seriously. People wanted to be part of the joy that was Paula; she attracted Friends everywhere.
In 1990, Paula met Dermot, an Irishman new to Canada. Together, they were partners in the joy of life: skiing and hiking around the world, taking numerous trips to Ireland, and travelling with her parents to her ancestral home in Slovenia. Never knowing their time would be short, Paula and Dermot packed a lifetime of adventure into their 16 years together.
Marrying in 1999, they later moved to New York and embarked on their greatest adventure and joy: parenthood. Pierce was born in April 2001 and Paula's frequent words to her son said it all: "I am so lucky to be your mummy." In motherhood, Paula really came into her own and viewed her bond with Pierce as her greatest achievement and joy. The new family moved to France a year later on sabbatical: They studied French, skied a season at Chamonix and travelled the countryside.
Upon returning to Toronto in 2003, Paula was diagnosed with breast cancer. Paula and Dermot faced this as they had everything else: together. For three years, while treatment was a fixture in their lives, Paula fought with her all, but ensured that it didn't interfere with her time with Pierce. Believing that this precious time was about making memories, Paula filled her life with family activities such as searching for beach glass, following Pierce's dinosaur passion with a dig in the Badlands of Alberta, and exploring the beaches and reefs of the Bahamas. In the last month of her life, she travelled to Dublin for her brother-in-law's wedding, where she inspired the family with her presence, and thrilled them with her desire to head out to the pub for one last pint of Guinness. Having become an Irish citizen six months earlier, she loved all things Irish.
On their travels, Paula collected fabric that she had planned to use in future at their cottage. When breast cancer changed that future, she learned to quilt, using those fabrics in another gift of herself to Pierce. She loved her Wednesday quilting sessions, shared with Friends. With the birth of her niece, Lauren, Paula added another quilt to her project list so that Lauren could enjoy the warmth of an aunt's love.
In February of this year, Paula decided to fight yet another traffic ticket earned as she sped through life. The definition of hope would seem to be the fighting of demerit points in the last months of your life. Unfortunately, the only police officer to show up was the one who had stopped her. She said a little prayer of exasperation, as she knew she didn't have a leg to stand on legally and was ecstatic when her case (and only her case) was dismissed for a lack of notes. She had saved $230, which she quickly spent on new boots before heading back for more chemo.
In her final weeks, Paula said that if living to an old age meant trading her life experiences, she would not have traded for an instant. One Monday morning in May, Paula came downstairs to enjoy cartoons with Pierce. As she watched him play, surrounded by her parents, and while holding Dermot's hand, Paula slipped away. She had lived for the moment until the very last. That is her greatest testament.
Leslie, Kathy and Patty are Friends of Paula.

Tom HODGSON, Artist And Athlete: (1924-2006)
The last surviving member of the Painters Eleven group that introduced abstract art to Toronto was an anti-academic who favoured spontaneity over skill. He was also a champion canoeist
By John CHAPUT, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Tom HODGSON grew up on Toronto's Centre Island near Hanlon's Point, a locale named after the legendary 19th-century rower Ned HANLON, but chose canoeing as his water sport. That proved wise as he became a Canadian Olympian on the water and even symbolic in his lifelong occupation as an artist. Whereas a rower gazes back on the water he has spanned, the paddler always looks ahead.
Technically a master of representational fundamentals, Mr. HODGSON enjoyed a long career in advertising, could paint striking realistic portraits, and picked up extra money doing courtroom sketches. His quest as an artist, however, was to find new means to express creativity, even if it meant suppressing skill and rebelling against an establishment he regarded as stifling.
"He thought the most creative people were the young who weren't influenced by anything," says daughter Lise SNAJDR. "My father was a skilled draftsman, but, in a way, he was against skill because it was all stuff you picked up from life experience. He was left-handed, but he went through a period of drawing only with his right hand in an attempt not to be too skillful. As it turned out, he developed an ambidexterity that proved to be another skill.
"His painting was spontaneous -- everything he did was -- but he wanted it to look that way. He could be free and liberal with paint, and put his feelings into a work."
Described by some as "anti-intellectual," Mr. HODGSON was, in fact, a deep thinker who would be better described as anti-academic. "He had his own ideas," says artist Gary MILLER of Peterborough, Ontario "He had great admiration for Willem de Kooning, but he didn't want to just cater to someone's opinion. He was stubborn and, because he was anti-academic, there was a movement to squelch Tom."
In his book Creativity Is Change, Mr. HODGSON declared skill to be "in some ways the antithesis of creativity, a sort of disrespect for man's time, and certainly for his individualism&hellip
"Creativity is curiosity, concern, trial and error, invention, not knowing, discovery. Skill is knowing how to do something…. The essence of creativity is uniqueness."
Mr. HODGSON was sometimes dismissed as a "jock painter" because many couldn't see athleticism and aesthetics harmonized in one personality. He won more than a dozen national titles at the juvenile and junior levels, and then nine more as an adult. In 1952, he took eighth place at the 1952 Helsinki Games in the 1,000-metre tandem with Art Johnson. At the Melbourne Games in 1956, he placed ninth in the 10,000-metre tandem with Bill Stevenson.
Standing just under six feet tall and weighing about 140 pounds, Mr. HODGSON was a whirlwind in the studio, his frenetic energy bustling as if his body was struggling to keep up with his train of thought. Although articulate, he could lapse into a stutter that affected his speech in childhood but was brought under control through therapy he took early in his professional life.
Mr. HODGSON's first serious painting was done from 1943 to 1945 while he was training as a pilot and gunner in the Royal Canadian Air Force. The Second World War ended and he was discharged before he could be assigned to combat, but he made numerous renderings of military life and later donated them to the War Art Museum. He first achieved artistic prominence a decade later as one of the Painters Eleven, the association of Toronto avant-garde painters who challenged artistic conservatism and gave the city its first healthy dose of abstract modernism. With Jack BUSH, Oscar CAHEN, Hortense GORDON, Alexandra LUKE, Jock MacDONALD, Ray MEAD, Kazuo NAKAMURA, William RONALD, Harold TOWN and Walter YARWOOD, they broadened the scope of Canadian art through mutual support and group exhibitions from their 1953 formation through their gradual fragmentation and dissolution from 1956 to 1960. Their affiliation was more professional than theoretical; they used disparate approaches and had no aesthetic commonalities.
Works of the Painters Eleven grew in demand and value in the '60s, but just a little too late for Mr. HODGSON to take full advantage of it. Short of materials at the time, he painted over some of the canvasses that could have brought in good money. Bad luck also struck in 1993 when a fire at his cottage destroyed many of the works he had stored there.
As a senior instructor at the Ontario College of Art, he was in the forefront of outrage at the upheaval of the school brought about by the policies of new president Roy ASCOTT in 1971-72. As a tenured professor, Mr. HODGSON was able to keep his job while many of his colleagues were fired, only to quit himself within a few months. Ironically, he was one of only two people on staff who had opposed the institution of tenure at the Ontario College of Art in the 1960s.
"Tom believed in the process of creativity as one of constant change and in the freedom of artists," says Mr. MILLER, then a student at the Ontario College of Art. " ASCOTT and later Royden RABINOVITCH were from the New York school, very radical and modern, and they were telling students their work was garbage. So Tom broke away, formed the Z School, and took half the student body with him."
As protests go, it was symbolically powerful and a practical failure.
"The Z School lasted about six months," recalls Don MORRISON, an artist and illustrator who was Mr. HODGSON's long-time friend and business partner. "You can't very well have a school without a structure or bureaucracy."
Mr. MORRISON and Mr. HODGSON shared studio space, first on Church Street across from St. James Cathedral, then in a warehouse on the corner of Dufferin and Bloor. Those were also venues for Drawing Night in Canada figure classes held every Thursday. The classes were conducted as the antithesis of the typically sombre gathering of sketchers and painters around a nude model.
"Usually at classes like that, it's like listening for a pin to drop," Mr. MORRISON says. Drawing Night in Canada was different. "These were noisy, vocal, 10 to 18 artists talking and joking. Anyone could grab a cold beer for 50 cents. The model would talk back and tell stories, too."
Inevitably, Mr. MORRISON wearied of the back-lane access to the warehouse and told his partner he'd prefer a storefront studio.
"A storefront?" Mr. HODGSON retorted. "I need a storefront like I need a hole in the head." In a matter of weeks, they had two storefront studios, one of them facing the historically infamous but architecturally engaging Mental Health Centre at 999 Queen Street West.
"Tom was impulsive, just like his painting. He would do exactly what he wanted," Mr. MORRISON says. "He built a swimming pool in the backyard of every house he owned. He would attempt to do almost anything. One day, he had a plumber come to his home on MacPherson Avenue because of a leak and the plumber said a lot of digging was necessary to get at the incoming line in front of the house. When he told Tom what it would cost, Tom said: 'I'll tell you what, I'll dig it myself.' After he had dug this enormous hole, I told Tom: 'Well, it may have been a lot of work to dig, but it'll be easy to fill in.' 'I don't want to fill it in,' he told me. 'I'm going to build a ramp so I can drive my bike right under the front porch and into the basement.' He had three motorcycles -- a BMW, a Husqvarna, and a Can-Am. So he built the ramp.
"It didn't occur to me that if he took the ramp to come in the basement, he'd use it to get out, too. I was renting on the second floor, and the first time he revved up one his bikes -- VRRRROOOOM! I jumped right out of bed."
Mr. HODGSON's energetic and impulsive nature, bohemian cultural surroundings and enjoyment of good times were an ideal formula for trouble in a man ripe for midlife crisis. He had a number of lovers and ended his first marriage to Wilma HODGSON before settling into a peaceful lifestyle with his second wife, Catherine GOOD. They moved to Peterborough in 1990. A few years later, he began to display the first signs of Alzheimer's. He was the last surviving member of the Painters Eleven.
Thomas Sherlock HODGSON was born on June 5, 1924, in Toronto. He died on February 27, 2006, near Peterborough, Ontario, of Alzheimer's disease. He is survived by his sons Mark, Rand and Timothy, daughters Lise Snajdr and Kara Warburton, and sister Jane HODGSON. He was predeceased by his wife, Catherine.
