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.

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. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation in his name would be appreciated.

Arthur JOHNS, 70: Engineer mentored young colleagues
He 'gave a lot to the profession'
Remembered as loving family man
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Staff Reporter
It was a make-or-break moment for Arthur JOHNS.
He was 29 years old and relatively fresh on the engineering scene when his bosses told him he was going to be involved, in a huge way, in the biggest job their company had done in its 20-year history.
The Medical Sciences building at the University of Toronto needed to be built and someone was going to have to design its structure.
Years later, JOHNS would say it was because he was so "scared to death" that the project went so well. JOHNS would go on from that assignment to become one of Canada's most distinguished engineers, leaving his mark everywhere from the Gardiner Expressway to the Health Sciences complex at Memorial University in Saint_John's. Along the way, he would pick up the profession's top honours, receiving gold medals from the Professional Engineers of Ontario and The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
On October 24, the man who rose from a child of the Depression era to become the president of Morrison Hershfield died one day after his 70th birthday following a nine-month fight with multiple myeloma.
His death, though expected from cancer of the immune system's plasma cells, devastated his family, who described him as a loving man who would do anything for his family.
"He was my strength," said his son, Scott JOHNS. " You couldn't ask for a better father."
At work, colleagues are still grieving the loss of the man who guided the firm from a small Canadian company to a North American entity. A grief counsellor was brought in because JOHNS, who stayed on after retirement as a special consultant, was considered a mentor to many at the company.
"He was a passionate man who gave a lot to the profession," said Catherine KARAKATSANIS, senior vice-president at Morrison Hershfield Ltd.
"Because he was such a brilliant engineer and so strategic, he could solve technical problems through innovations and ingenious adaptations of existing engineering problems. These innovations advanced the practice of engineering in Canada."
JOHNS was born in Toronto on October 23, 1936, to Charles JOHNS and Josephine TEMPLETON, two immigrants from England and Ireland. He was the youngest of two children.
Though JOHNS didn't start off as the most studious lad, he buckled down to study as the years passed, becoming the first in his family to go to university.
"They were very proud of that," said his wife and high-school sweetheart, Ruth JOHNS.
It was when he was studying at University of Toronto that he would meet the men who would change his life: Carson MORRISON, Mark HUGGINS and Charlie HERSHFIELD. The University of Toronto professors would go on to hire the youngster at their company, where JOHNS would remain for more than 40 years.
"Those were his mentors and heroes," said his son, Scott JOHNS. "I think he was so successful in that company because he wanted their names to continue in the engineering industry."
Though he gave his heart and soul to the job, his wife, Ruth, remembered him as a very involved family man.
"He made time and he was always home in time to put the kids to bed and read them stories, help bath them."
If a high school soccer match or hockey game was being played, JOHNS made sure he made it out to see his children.
"He was always there for us, and I know he was incredibly busy with work," said his son. "Work was always important but I think family was first.
"He always made time for those important things."
It was a love that continued even as he grew older and become a grandfather.
"He would come to my son's baseball games or T-ball game; he came even though it was a 45-minute drive," his son added.
This was evident even after JOHNS became sick, his son said.
"His concern through this entire illness was my mom and how it was affecting our lives," he said.
"If he wasn't going to get back to where he was and couldn't do all the things he wanted to do, then he didn't want to be around because he felt he was a burden for my mother," he said. "Right up to the end, he was very unselfish."
Though engineering and his family were his primary passions, JOHNS was also an artist who loved to draw pictures of people and events.
"He did pictures of all of us at some point," said his son.
At work, JOHNS rose through the ranks quickly, inspired by a belief that engineering was about public service. Part of the reason for his father's success, the younger JOHNS said, is the way he treated people.
"I think it was the way he did business, with integrity and fairness. He wasn't a back-stabbing person, he didn't fight his way up the ladder. He did it with integrity and respect.
"He made decisions for the right reasons, not just to make money."
JOHNS also believed a key to success was being alert at serendipitous moments. A work colleague offered this statement JOHNS wrote some time ago: "In order for serendipity to take place, people have to have their antenna up and tuned in at all times, because 'valuable and agreeable' things are often fleeting opportunities. Sometimes, they just make you feel really good; other times, they can change your whole life, or, in a corporation such as Morrison Hershfield, they can create growth or new business opportunities."
JOHNS' style helped him win many fans at the firm, said colleague KARAKATSANIS.
"He always took the time to help, listen and pass on his knowledge and experience," she said. "He truly was a remarkable person, a very rare person."
In his later years, JOHNS was sought after to provide expert testimony at trials.
An annual Arthur B. Johns Scholarship is being created at the University of Toronto to assist a civil engineering student in need.
