Mary MacDONALD, Civil Servant (1918-2006)
For decades, she guarded the gates of power in the Prime Minister's Office, first as an 'indispensable' executive secretary to Lester PEARSON and then to Pierre TRUDEAU
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S11
Ottawa -- In 1967, Prime Minister Lester PEARSON needed to find a birthday gift for his executive assistant, and it had to be special. Mary MacDONALD had been with him 20 years and, as he admitted handsomely in his autobiography, "[she was] indispensable as my Girl Friday. Nobody ever served anyone with greater devotion."
So, what to give Miss MacDONALD for her 49th birthday on April 30, 1967? In the end, he settled on the perfect gift: the Bible presented to him by Prime Minister Mackenzie KING on September 10, 1948, when Mr. PEARSON was sworn as a member of the King's Privy Council for Canada. At the same time, Mr. PEARSON, arguably Canada's most famous diplomat, was appointed secretary of state for External Affairs, and the Bible had become a treasured family memento.
On the flyleaf, Mr. PEARSON wrote a warm and heartfelt message: "To Mary, with all of my best wishes and grateful appreciation for helping a P.C. become a p.m. … L. B. PEARSON." The Bible is now held in trust by Mr. PEARSON's grand_son, Michael, for his infant son.
Miss MacDONALD first joined Mr. PEARSON in 1947 at the then-Department of External Affairs. They had made a terrific team together, travelling the world when he was minister of External Affairs and then the country after he became leader of the Liberal Party of Canada in 1958.
As one of the gatekeepers to Mr. PEARSON, Miss MacDONALD did not suffer fools gladly. "My father owed his success in part, to her," said retired diplomat Geoffrey PEARSON at her funeral last week. "Success in politics, as in life, is often due to those who stand at the door."
Miss MacDONALD's working day always extended past 5 p.m., for 10 or 12 hours overall. She once wrote 91 letters in one day. Politics was her life, to the exclusion of everything else including marriage, except her family. Weekends were no different. If Mr. PEARSON and his wife Maryon needed her, Miss MacDONALD would be there.
"She really knew who was useful and kept him in touch with his constituents and vice-versa. She was a great organizer," said retired senator Landon PEARSON.
Mary MacDONALD grew up in Ottawa during the Depression. After graduating from the University of Ottawa in 1938, she spent five years with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. In 1941, she joined the Canadian Red Cross Corps, shipping out to Britain two years later. A month after D-Day, June 6, 1944, she was sent to No. 12 Canadian General Hospital as a welfare officer. Since there was a shortage of nurses, her organizational skills were used to regulate the efficient flow of patients from the wards to the operating theatres.
Janet FLANDERS of Ottawa first met Miss MacDONALD in 1943, in a battered London at war. "She was bright and cheerful… She could do anything."
After returning to Ottawa in December of 1945, Miss MacDONALD joined the Department of External Affairs. Soon after, she was assigned to the new undersecretary of external affairs, just back from Washington as Canadian ambassador. Lester "Mike" PEARSON was a rising star and it took very little time for them to develop a working relationship, although she never called him anything other than "Mr. PEARSON."
For the next 12 years, Miss MacDONALD received an education in foreign affairs, as her boss helped Prime Minister Louis SAINT_LAURENT make Canada an important player on the world stage. It was the beginning of the Cold War and Canada's foreign policy included giving strong support to her allies in North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the United Nations. She also obtained a master's degree in political science in 1948, but paused in her own advancement to help old Friends, one of whom was Janet FLANDERS. " After the war, she got me a job in External in 1947&hellip We were close Friends for 60 years. You don't come across people of her calibre very often."
Another of her Friends was Aline CHRÉTIEN, wife of former prime minister Jean CHRÉTIEN. They had met in 1963 after Mr. CHRÉTIEN was first elected to the House of Commons. "We saw her all the time. She was devoted to her boss, Mr. PEARSON, her Friends and family," said Mrs. CHRÉTIEN. " She was like a mother to all sorts of people… Jean and I loved her."
During Mr. PEARSON's 20 years in federal politics, Miss MacDONALD played a part in getting him elected eight times in his riding of Algoma East, in Northern Ontario. He was fortunate to have Miss MacDONALD as his riding secretary, he once wrote. She was a "very friendly, outgoing person who enjoyed meeting new people. She became the bulwark of my political life and soon knew everyone in the constituency, to my great advantage."
In fact, Time magazine said the only person who could ever dethrone Mr. PEARSON in Algoma East was Miss MacDONALD. After Mr. PEARSON was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo in 1957 for helping secure peace in the 1956 Suez Crisis, he found himself out of office when John Diefenbaker's Conservatives won the next election. An exhausted Louis SSAINTURENT resigned as Liberal chief and Miss MacDONALD became the executive assistant to the new leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition. Five long years in opposition followed, until Mr. PEARSON beat Mr. Diefenbaker and became the 14th prime minister of Canada on April 22, 1963.
A devoted Liberal, she also served Mr. PEARSON's successor. When Pierre Elliott TRUDEAU took over as Prime Minister on April 20, 1968, he was advised that continuity in the Prime Minister's Office was important and that Miss MacDONALD could provide it. After all, she knew everyone in Ottawa.
For the next 11 years, she was Mr. TRUDEAU's administrative and constituency liaison officer, ruling a staff of 15 secretaries with tact and humour. Isabel METCALFE of Ottawa was one of them. "She was marvellous to us. She encouraged us, gave us advice she was fun. She was meticulous in upholding the standards of the Prime Minister's Office. She was an inspiration to us in the context of political activism."
It was the role in which she probably felt most comfortable and most effective. In 1968, rumours swirled around Parliament Hill that Mr. PEARSON was thinking about appointing her to the Senate. For reasons that may never be fully known, it didn't happened. Instead, former Liberal cabinet minister Paul Martin, Sr., got the call.
Landon PEARSON, who was Lester PEARSON's daughter-in-law, believes Miss MacDONALD "would have made an excellent senator. She had excellent political instincts and knew politics. She was a great organizer. In my view, she was never adequately recognized by the men."
In 1979, Miss MacDONALD retired and the following year she was content to receive the Order of Canada. From her point of view, it was probably more than enough. After sitting at the right hands of Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU, she had seen it all.
"Behind every great man is a surprised woman, my mother used to say," said Geoffrey PEARSON. " Mary was never surprised."
Mary Elizabeth MacDONALD was born on April 30, 1918, in North Cobalt, Ontario She died of a stroke on June 5 in Ottawa. She was 88. She leaves her sister Kay, her nephews Peter, Joe, Paul, John and Greg. She was predeceased by her brother Neil.
