'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.

Several die in boating accidents
The holiday weekend and boating safety week were marred by several drownings.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter, Tues., May 23, 2006
The deaths of several Ontario boaters this holiday weekend should be a chilling reminder of the importance of safe boating week, experts said yesterday.
"It is a deadly weekend on the water," said Rob SECCO of the London Power and Sail Squadron.
Safe Boating Awareness Week started Saturday, just as the season began for many Ontario recreational boaters.
Unfortunately, this year's boating season also began with cold water, high winds and several drownings.
The bodies of three Toronto-area men were found after they were forced to abandon their vessel in blustery conditions on Rice Lake in southern Ontario Sunday.
The men were among a group of seven out fishing when their boat was hit by high waves and began to sink about 500 metres from shore, police said.
The body of Holland CHOW, 54, of Richmond Hill, was found by rescuers on the south shore near Harwood, southeast of Peterborough.
The bodies of Albert CHOW, 51, of Stouffville, and Duylunong DIEP, 54, of Richmond Hill, were located by police not far from where the vessel went down.
Two men and two women, aged 17 to 59, reached shore and were rescued.
Elsewhere, the search continued yesterday for a canoeist missing near Thunder Bay.
Another man is presumed drowned after a canoeing accident northeast of Madoc. The man's canoe overturned on Wolf Lake and he wasn't wearing a life jacket, police said.
From 3,000 to 4,000 times a year, recreational boaters get into trouble, accounting for 60 per cent of search and rescue efforts in Canada, SECCO said.
That suggests even experienced boaters should review Transport Canada's Safe Boating Guide before starting the season, he said.
"Read it and reread it and refresh your mind."
Education is the key to safe boating, and the London squadron plans to set up a display at next weekend's open house at the Fanshawe Yacht Club and Sailing School.
Canadian Power and Sail Squadron offers a one-day basic boating course, which gives participants their pleasure craft operator card, but most squadrons suggest boaters take a longer, 16-week course accredited by the Canadian Coast Guard.
Many boaters simply don't have the experience and information they need to stay safe this summer, SECCO said.
"I think people just get in their boats and go. There is no preparation work. Let's enjoy a safe boating season in 2006."
Boating Safety Facts
- For safe boating tips and courses, contact your local Canadian Power and Sail Squadron. Squadron listings can be found at www.cps-ecp.ca or call 1-888-277-2628.
- Surface water temperatures in lakes Huron and Erie are hovering at 2 to 4°C. Cold water can kill instantly when the shock of falling in causes a reflexive gasp, drawing water into the lungs.
- Hypothermia begins when the body's temperature drops below 35°C. The loss of body heat causes loss of dexterity and consciousness and eventually death. In water at 2 to 4°C, it takes only 15 to 30 minutes to lose consciousness and from 30 to 90 minutes to die.

Inseparable in life and death
The boys' mother, Shauna BROCK- HOWARD, has created an award in their memory to be given annually.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter, Wed., June 28, 2006
Blair HOWARD, left, and his brother, Byron, shown fishing in Florida last summer, died when their car hit a tree in Roswell, Georgia., last Thursday.
Last summer, Byron HOWARD decided to stay in Georgia for a while because his big brother, Blair, needed him there.
This week the two brothers returned home, each in his own casket, each holding a photograph of the other.
Their mother, Shauna BROCK- HOWARD, placed the photographs in the caskets before the trip home from Georgia to London, finding some solace in the fact her eldest sons are still together.
"They were best of Friends right from the beginning," BROCK- HOWARD said yesterday.
"I believe God made the decision to take both boys because of how close they were. If he had taken only one, the other one&hellip " she said, unable to continue.
Blair, 24, and Byron, 22, were killed in a single-vehicle crash about 4 a.m. Thursday in Roswell, Georgia., police there said.
Their 1994 Honda Accord left a curve in the road and struck a tree. Alcohol was not a factor, police said.
Their mother returned to her Oakridge home yesterday morning after arranging for the bodies to come home, distraught at the thought the caskets were separated for a while in Toronto.
Her sons' paths were separate but always intertwined, she said.
"Blair was born with a pencil in his hands. He was a talented artist."
In Grade 4, he went to Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts. He played the piano, played violin with the London Youth Symphony Orchestra and sang in the Amabile boys' choir.
"He was a little uncomfortable with his artistic side. It wasn't manly enough, so to balance that he was an avid hockey player, lacrosse player, soccer player," BROCK- HOWARD said.
After high school, Blair's artistic and "manly side" combined into a love of carpentry.
"Carpentry chose him. He loved working with wood," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Blair headed down to Georgia in 2001 with a friend on vacation and met a master carpenter who began teaching him.
"And then he met a girl and he fell in love. So he found ways to stay."
Meanwhile, Byron was making his own way.
Where Blair was born eager and intense, wiry and artistic, Byron was laid-back, not as artistic, but more solid physically.
Blair was the kind of kid who played left wing in hockey; Byron loved defence.
Like his older brother, Byron played just about every sport going.
The two led the younger three children in the family, Olivia, Brodi and Bryer. They also are survived by their father, Philip HOWARD, and stepfather Chuck CHAMBERS.
Blair was the authority.
"You will listen to your mother," he used to tell the other children.
Byron had a different way to keep the peace, BROCK- HOWARD recalled.
"Just tell her what she wants to hear," he would say.
As adults, the two sons loved to watch sports, and fish and see Friends together.
"They were opposites, but they complemented each other," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Byron went to Georgia for a short visit with his brother last summer.
But just then, Blair's relationship with his girlfriend collapsed. Byron decided to stick around his older brother.
"He stayed to look after his brother," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Her sons settled in Alpharetta, a community of about 30,000 people northeast of Atlanta. They were enjoying the good and easy times of young men free from school and financial worries.
Her sons were coming back this summer. Byron was returning to school for his electrician's papers. Blair was coming for a visit and, his mom hoped, to find work here.
Because of how her boys are coming home now, BROCK- HOWARD has decided to keep alive the way they once were.
With the help of family and Friends, she has established the Blair and Byron Howard Spirit Award, to be given annually to a student at the boys' old high school, Sir Frederick Banting.
"They were good kids. It is a crying shame," said Vicki MILES, a teacher at Banting.
"They were always in the front hallway, laughing. They were well-rounded, characters."
That is the kind of student BROCK- HOWARD wants to help.
"I would like it to be a child who isn't the smartest or most athletic or the best at anything, but honest and caring and with strong family values. This might be the thing that helps them go forward."
The award will resurrect the spirit of her sons, and her faith in life itself, BROCK- HOWARD said.

Market loses 'mayor'
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter, Fri., September 15, 2006
The man considered the mayor of the Covent Garden Market -- and the last to bear the name of London's most famous son -- has died.
The death September 6 of Hubert LOMBARDO, 96, marks the end of an era in London for several reasons, those who knew him said yesterday.
For many Londoners, LOMBARDO was known as the cousin of famous bandleader Guy LOMBARDO and the holder of the rich family lore.
For many more, Hubert was the visible symbol of the deep roots of this city's downtown farmer's market.
"He was almost the mayor of the market," said writer and friend Herman GOODDEN.
As a little boy, the stories go, Hubert LOMBARDO walked each day with his mother to the market for groceries.
He became a familiar sight, pulling his little red wagon, filled with produce, to the family home near the Labatt brewery.
So it went until he married teacher Jean NORTON in 1964, at age 54. His late-in-life marriage was due to the fact he had looked after his elderly mother for years, visiting her every day, GOODDEN said.
"Hubert had a shy soul and a really good heart."
After that, LOMBARDO and his wife made daily trips to the market, shopping for food and then stopping for coffee and conversation.
The two were chosen to cut the special pasta ribbon to open the new market October 21, 1999, signalling the start of the downtown revitalization.
Almost every day since, the elderly couple came in, Hubert in a suit and Jean, who still lives in London, dressed in finery, said Ian GREASLEY, owner of Bloomers flower shop.
"This was his spot. The two of them always looked like a couple in love. They always had that smile."
Christmas was a big deal to the couple and they made sure everyone celebrated, GOODDEN said.
"He had a really booming voice. The floorboards rumbled when he talked. He got so excited sometimes, he would get ahead of himself.
"Whenever he was talking to one of my brothers, he would just say, 'DaveTedBobSteve,' said GOODDEN, whose real name is Steve. (Herman was a nickname given him as a child.)
LOMBARDO was eight years younger than his famous cousin Guy, who became the leader of the big band The Royal Canadians, starting the worldwide singing of Auld Lang Syne at New Year's.
"He was really funny about Guy. He was really proud of Guy," GOODDEN said. But he didn't have his other brothers' passion for music.
As members of the family passed away, Hubert became tapped more and more to help the Lombardo Music Centre and now-defunct Royal Canadian Big Band Music Festival.
"He was very supportive of the festival," said co-founder Tyrone TRAHER. "He had a great knowledge of Guy LOMBARDO and was a very good source of factual information."
There are no other family members with the LOMBARDO name left in London, said Doug FLOOD, longtime supporter of the Lombardo Music Centre.
"It's the end of that generation," he said.

Fog believed factor in pedestrian fatality
It also may have figured in an incident that injured a woman near Amulree, police say.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter, Thurs., November 9, 2006
Fog may have been a factor in the traffic death of one pedestrian and in a hit-and-run crash that injured another pedestrian in Perth County, police say.
Dead is Gordon Wayne McDONALD, 66, of Line 49, Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday.
McDONALD was standing outside his house on the shoulder of Line 49 in the Township of Logan, about 10 kilometres north of Mitchell, watching a worker repair a utility pole, Sgt. Dave Rektor said.
The utility truck was in the westbound lane with its emergency flashers on.
At about 8 p.m. Tuesday, the 23-year-old driver of a pickup truck heading west swerved on to the shoulder to pass the utility truck and struck McDONALD, police said.
McDONALD was rushed to Stratford General Hospital, where he died.
Meanwhile, an unidentified woman remained in hospital yesterday with injuries to her head and possibly to her upper leg and pelvis after being found about 5: 30 a.m. on Perth Line 43 just east of Road 119, west of Amulree.
It appears she was hit by a vehicle, which then took off, Rektor said.
"Weather may have been a factor" in both collisions, he said. "We can't say that conclusively yet."
Police are still trying to determine who the woman is, and are asking to speak to anyone who may have been driving in the area of the collision early yesterday morning.
Rektor said Ontario Provincial Police officers investigating the incident narrowly avoided injury yesterday when two separate motorists, travelling too fast in the fog, blew past police barricades and narrowly missed cruisers at the crash site.
Two drivers have been charged with careless driving.
Meanwhile, Sarnia police said yesterday they're still looking for witnesses: to a Tuesday afternoon hit-and-run that sent a 41-year-old cyclist to hospital. That collision took place at Brock and Wellington streets.

Murray LISTER, Royal Canadian Air Force Air Vice-Marshal (1912-2006)
In 1966 he was rising to the top of his cherished Royal Canadian Air Force when he resigned to protest against Ottawa's plan to unify the military and outfit Canada's Armed Forces in lamentable green serge
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Murray LISTER was a man of integrity. In 1966, as an Royal Canadian Air Force air vice-marshal in charge of Air Defence Command, he quit rather than stand by and watch Paul HELLYER unify Canada's armed services. Defying the minister of national defence in 1966 came at a very high price for Mr. LISTER, whose responsibility is was to defend Canada against aerial attack by the Soviet Union. Unlike hundreds of other senior officers, he deliberately refused to follow Mr. HELLYER's dictatorial party line and lost his promotion to air marshal, at that time a rank equivalent to an army lieutenant-general.
Mr. LISTER's decision took many by surprise, since he was fifth from the top of the Royal Canadian Air Force's seniority list, but he never regretted following his conscience at such a great personal cost, his son, Murray, said. "He was a man of principle and the main principle he followed was duty. He declined promotion and accepted early retirement on the principle of duty toward the traditions and morale of the air force."
The trouble had started after he made his feelings known. He believed that while the traditions of the Royal Canadian Navy and the army were important, those of the Royal Canadian Air Force were unique. "He didn't want any service tradition to be diluted," his son said. "He felt that the effectiveness of each of the three services was built on morale. There was no point in destroying this morale."
One day in mid-March of 1966, during the height of the unification crisis that gripped Parliament and the country, Mr. LISTER was summoned to Ottawa and found himself on the carpet. Air Chief Marshal Frank MILLER, the chief of the defence staff, accused him of criticizing unification in speeches to subordinates.
Fortunately, Mr. LISTER's aide, retired squadron leader Robert FLYNN, had taken notes on what his boss had actually said. "While he did not 100-per-cent support the concept, he impressed those over whom he had command that it was his and their duty to respect and honour the political directives. It was a very uneasy and stressful time for him, but he weathered the storm," Mr. FLYNN said.
Mr. HELLYER's ambitious drive to create one service from the navy, army and air force, unveiled in 1964 in a government white paper, created enormous controversy. Mr. HELLYER insisted his dual plan of integration and unification would save millions of dollars that would be better spent on new equipment, but many saw it as a direct attack on the military's cherished, British-based traditions. Thousands of sailors, soldiers and airmen were appalled that Mr. HELLYER wanted to scrap their traditional uniforms of navy blue and army khaki and replace them with a common green serge. Sailors and airmen would wear army ranks on their sleeves.
Mr. LISTER was a strong supporter of integration, which sought to eliminate costly triplication such as separate personnel and supply systems. If he'd decided to put his career before his principles, there's no telling how high he might have risen, since Mr. HELLYER desperately needed senior officers to toe his party line and take over from those who decided to resign.
Mr. LISTER, known as a strict disciplinarian, had a strong streak of stubbornness, his son said. "His sense of duty came from his mother, who was very strict herself and brought him up that way. He had enormous willpower. He used logic in arguing and was quite an intellectual. He was a super-achiever."
Tragically, the stress of coping with unification may have affected Mr. LISTER's first marriage to Janet RICHMOND, their daughter Sydney said. Her parents were divorced in 1971 after 32 years of marriage. Still, there was plenty of hope and happiness at the beginning, she said. "My dad always told us how much fun she was, how talented she was… It was a love story."
After graduating from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1935, Mr. LISTER flew fighters with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He and his bride of four months happened to be in England when war broke out on September 1, 1939. Naturally, he thought he'd soon be flying against the German Luftwaffe, but brass had a better appreciation of his talents.
A week later, he was recalled to Canada and put to work organizing all bombing and gunnery training facilities for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Dubbed the "Aerodrome of Democracy," Canada built an enormous network of training bases that, over the next five years, trained 131,500 aircrew from the British Commonwealth and Allied nations. Overall, the Royal Canadian Air Force grew dramatically to 215,000 men and women and 88 squadrons.
Promoted to group captain in 1943 at the early age of 31, Mr. LISTER tried to get overseas to fly on operations but never made it, his son said. "He was too valuable. That bothered him to the end of his life, [since] his first love was flying."
The closest he came to going operational was to command Station Tofino, British Columbia, an air base that flew long-distance anti-submarine patrols far into the Pacific. His 1944-45 posting earned him a mention in dispatches: "By his ability and outstanding devotion to duty he has raised the standard of this unit to a high pitch of operational efficiency."
After the war, Mr. LISTER filled four key positions as the Royal Canadian Air Force expanded dramatically to 52,000 men and women. In 1954, he was appointed chief of plans and intelligence. In 1958, he was appointed deputy vice-chief of the Royal Canadian Air Force and chief of training, a job that gave him and his wife Janet -- known as a gracious hostess -- a high profile on Ottawa's diplomatic cocktail circuit.
In 1960, Mr. LISTER went to Colorado Springs where he spent four years at North American Air Defence Command as deputy chief of staff, operations. Mr. LISTER played a key part in organizing North American Air Defence Command, an agency set up to protect North America from air attack. He had a first-hand view of the Cuban missile crisis that brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear war in 1962.
Jaye LISTER, then 14, still remembers the worries she experienced when her father didn't come home for four days. It was the height of the Cold War and nuclear conflict seemed a horrible possibility for millions. "We had a red phone in the master bedroom, a direct line to North American Air Defence Command headquarters. One morning I asked mum where Dad was. Her reply was, 'I don't know. The red phone rang and your father left. I don't know when we'll see him.' We had no contact with him at all."
In 1964, Mr. LISTER took command of Air Defence Command, which included squadrons of CF-100 and CF-101 fighters. Mr. FLYNN remembers his boss as "a very demanding person yet very patient and understanding. He had a great sense of humour yet was a no-nonsense type. When toughness was demanded he could dish it out, but always in a human and respectful manner. [He] treated me, as he did everyone, with human understanding."
After retiring from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1966, Mr. LISTER became a gentlemen farmer, growing apples and wheat and raising sheep and cattle on a farm near Picton, Ontario In 1997, more than 50 years after he had last flown an aircraft, Mr. LISTER took to the sky one last time as a pilot. Although by then blind in one eye, he made a "beautiful flight," an observer said.
"[It's] exactly like riding a bicycle," Mr. LISTER said at the time. "You never forget. Everything felt very natural. It was tremendously exciting."
Murray Duncan LISTER was born on January 17, 1912, in Edmonton.
He died of pneumonia on January 7, 2006, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario He was 10 days short of his 94th birthday. He leaves his wife Elizabeth DAILLEY, son Murray, and daughters Sydney and Jaye. He also leaves stepdaughters Elizabeth and Lynne.
