Katherine Riddell ROUILLARD, Educator: (1906-2006)
For 20 years, she ran the International Students' Centre at the University of Toronto and built up a network of global contacts
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- It was rare to find Kay Riddell ROUILLARD strolling alone on the University of Toronto campus during her 20-year stint as director of the International Students' Centre, a successful institution housed on St. George Street. You'd be more likely to find her escorting students through the complex framework of the Canadian mosaic. "Behind everything that happened at the International Students' Centre, [she] was the catalyst and the chemistry of mixing people from all over the world," said Roy Fischer, her assistant director during the 1960s. "She had an uncanny sense of what was needed to make it work and she believed that bringing people together in a supportive and stimulating environment made good things happen."
The role of the International Students' Centre is to assist international students with their adjustment to university and Canada. Their mandate includes study-abroad programs for Canadian students in order to further develop global experience.
As well as meeting students on campus, Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD also invited them into her Rosedale home. Some came for tea, some came for Christmas dinner, some temporarily lived there with her and her two children. "Back then, it was considered extraordinary to have a young, handsome black male living on your street," said her son, John RIDDELL. "It was noticed."
Susan Riddell STYLIANOS remembers her mother inviting students home and listening to them discuss their lives. "Someone from South Africa sitting in our living room talking would get her involved in anti-apartheid work."
Sometimes, the lure was irresistible. "It is impossible to talk and work with young men and women every day without beginning to share their deep concerns," Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD said in a 1973 speech. "We have become, indeed, part of one another in a world grown suddenly small."
Born in Quebec, Kay Riddell ROUILLARD was the daughter of Harriet PAGE and Perry DOBSON and grew up in Saint Thomas, Ontario, where for 40 years her father was principal of Alma College, a private school for girls. In a memoir, Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD recalled pressures her mother experienced as the principal's wife and how she was inspired to challenge gender-based limitations in her own life. "I remember mother's anxiety over how she would be judged as the principal's wife -- her clothes, her household possessions, even her children.
"She told me one day that her competence in French and German and math and botany and her handcrafts might be useful to her family and Friends but perhaps not so useful in her new role at Alma. Perhaps she should have spent more time learning to dress well, speak well, hostess well."
As a girl, Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD had weathered her father's authority as an educator and attended Alma College, an impressive Gothic Revival building in the centre of Saint Thomas that is now under threat of demolition. From there, she went on to study at the University of Toronto's Victoria College in the early 1920s. While at Victoria, she worked with Group of Seven artist Arthur Lismer at the University Settlement House, where she gave art classes to working-class children.
The experience left a lasting impression. Later, as a young teacher working in the Six Nations native community in Caldeonia, Ontario, she convinced local merchants to display the art of aboriginal children in their storefront windows.
In 1936, she married Robert Gerald RIDDELL, a history professor who became Canada's first ambassador to the United Nations, and began raising a family. In 1950, the family moved to a Long Island town outside of New York, but the pressures of the job proved punishing for her husband, she later said. At the time, the Korean War was raging and he had made an around-the-clock effort to promote a negotiated end to the conflict. In an effort to relieve the stresses of his job, the family had been vacationing at Myrtle Beach, North Carolina They were building sandcastles on the beach when he collapsed of a heart attack.
His death was a turning point in Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD's life. Instead of packing up her children and returning to her parents' home in Saint Thomas, she opted to stay in Toronto and begin a new life as a single working mother. First, she had to find a job and a place to live. On the advice of a friend, she took up with a fledging community organization called Friendly Relations with Overseas Students, earning her wages through fundraising efforts. Eventually, it became the International Students' Centre, where she was ensconced for two decades.
Her career at the International Students' Centre, and the global web of contacts that came with it, came to be highly valued by the university. Shortly after she retired in 1972, the school awarded her an honorary doctorate. A year later, she received the Order of Canada.
In 1987, Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD married for a second time. Dana ROUILLARD, the retired head of the University of Toronto French Department, had known her for decades and they decided to make something more of their Friendship. At the time, they were both in their late 80s. They spent four years together, moving between her home on Duplex Avenue in Toronto and his cottage on Georgian Bay, until her death in 1991. During these years, she returned to a love of painting that had taken shape during her years with Arthur Lismer.
Even so, Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD's activism was far from over. She continued her political work right up until the year of her death. During a stay at Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital on University Avenue in March, a large anti-war demonstration occurred outside the nearby U.S. consulate. Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD had herself wheeled to the front door of the hospital, where she cheered the crowd marching up University. She returned to her room with a picket sign attached to her wheelchair.
Ms. Riddell ROUILLARD lived to be one month shy of 100. A planned birthday celebration instead became a memorial service.
Katherine (Kay) Riddell ROUILLARD was born in St. Lambert, Quebec, August 12, 1906. She died of heart disease on July 11, 2006, in Toronto. She is survived by her daughter, Susan Riddell STYLIANOS, and son, John RIDDELL.

HEARNDEN, Kenneth William
Professor Emeritus, Lakehead University, Registered Professional Forester
Died peacefully in the Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home on April 7 in Simcoe. He leaves behind his wife, Sheilagh McCULLAGH, sons James (Donna BURNSIDE), Stanley, John (Tammy QUIGLEY), as well as his two granddaughters, Colleen and Quinn. He is survived by his two sisters, Enid ROULEAU and Esme (Jim) HUNT. He was predeceased by his daughter Echo Jean. Ken was born in Toronto on May 11, 1923. He attended Parkdale Collegiate Institute and finished grade 13 with first class honours. Ken graduated with a Bachelor of Science of Forestry Degree in 1946 with first class honours from Toronto University. He began his career working briefly as a Canadian Government Dominion Forest Service researcher in Sault Ste. Marie. He left this position in the same year, 1946, to join Abitibi Paper Company at its Lakehead Woodlands Division. He became a Divisional Forester and played a role in planning and managing the company's operations in northwestern Ontario. Ken left Abitibi in 1969 to join Lakehead University's School of Forestry as an associate professor. In 1971, he became the Director and later Chairman of the school. The school grew considerably during his 9 years of leadership. Ken went on to become the Dean of Students at the University in 1980. He retired in 1985 and was appointed Professor Emeritus by Lakehead University's Board of Governors in 1986. A Scholarship in Forestry was created in his name by the University. Ken held very strong views on the need to reform industry wide forestry management practices. He was often quoted and interviewed by the news media as an authoritative voice for change. Some of his students were notable for carrying forward his concerns in their own careers. Ken was very involved in professional associations. He was President of the Canadian Institute of Forestry, 1964-65, President of the Ontario Professional Foresters Association, 1969-71 (later a Life Member), and Secretary-Treasurer, Association of University Forestry Schools of Canada, 1973-80. He also engaged in consulting. Most notably, Ken conducted the Ontario Independent Forest Audit, 1991-1992, for the Ontario Minister of Natural Resources, and the Report on Environmental Progress in Forestry Operations in Ontario, 1987, a survey and report for the "Forests Forever" consortium, which included the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, Canadian Environmental Law Association and others. He consulted and reported on Canadian Indian Reserves forestry issues for the federal Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. Ken had a very strong sense of civic responsibility and volunteered for many boards, in both Thunder Bay, and then in southwestern Ontario after his retirement. In Thunder Bay, his volunteer activities included being a member of the North Western Ontario Commission on Employment, 1960-62, a member of the former city of Port Arthur Board of Park Management, 1966-68 and Chairman of the same city's Building Committee, 1966-67. He was Chairman of the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority, 1968-73. As well, he was a member of the Lakehead Planning Board, 1969-1970 and Vice-President of the Canadian Club of Thunder Bay, 1975-77, and President, 1978-79. Ken purchased a sector of land in the Township of Shuniah in the 1970s for family recreational use. This led to his becoming a member of the township's Committee of Adjustment, 1972-75 and Chairman, 1975, of the Planning Board, 1978 and then Vice-Chairman, 1981-1983. Ken, and his wife Sheilagh, purchased a home in Normandale, a small hamlet by Lake Erie, near Port Dover and Simcoe, Ontario. Once again, Ken found himself active in the community. He was a member of the Township of Delhi Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee, 1986 and Chairman, 1988-90, and a member of the Haldimand-Norfolk District Health Council starting in 1990, and Chairman between 1993 and 95. He acted as Treasurer for the Canadian Mental Health Association, Haldimand Norfolk Branch in 1992, and was Vice President in 1995. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the Long Point World Biosphere Reserve in 1993. Ken was a dedicated 50-year member of the Masonic Lodge. He first joined in 1956, going on to become a Past Master of Connaught Lodge in Thunder Bay, the President of Thunder Bay Temple Buildings Ltd (1974-77), and was a Grand Stewart of the Grand Lodge in Ontario in 1974. He joined the Vittoria and Norfolk Lodges after he moved to Normandale. Ken was a member of the Scottish Rite, in which he was appointed an Honorary Inspector-General, 33 Degree. There will be no memorial service in accordance with Ken's wishes. Please remember him in anyway appropriate to your relationship with him. If you wish, plant a tree in memory of him.
