Magnus GUNTHER, Professor And Activist (1934-2006)
Raised in South Africa, he left to escape apartheid and eventually settled in Canada where he regrouped and mounted a private war on the racist regime in Johannesburg. He later became an expert on Inuit land claims
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- The cut and thrust of politics fascinated Magnus GUNTHER. As a youth in Johannesburg and later in the Netherlands, he played active roles in the international student movement and in the struggle against apartheid. When those activities left him without a South African passport, he brought his passion for political science to Canada, where he taught at York and Trent Universities, and took on a number of fact-finding missions for the federal government.
As a student leader, he lobbied for democracy in Franco's Spain, for an end to French rule in Algeria and for black rights in South Africa. Yet he steered clear of Communist groups that had similar aims. As an opponent of apartheid, he gave support from abroad to the African Resistance Movement's campaign of sabotage against property within South Africa. Although always to the left of the political centre, he became a target of leftist critics himself in 1992, over a report he wrote for the federal government. It took the side of Ottawa over Inuit villagers who claimed they had been relocated to the high Arctic against their will.
For more than three decades, Prof. GUNTHER suffered from Crohn's disease, undergoing major surgery and periods of hospitalization. Yet he continued to be involved in international political causes even into his retirement.
"He was a very skillful backroom politician," says John Shingler, a former South African student leader and now a financial consultant in Montreal. "He knew the dynamics of a group and how to garner a majority of support."
Magnus GUNTHER, an only child, was born in Germany in 1934. When he was 2, his parents, Johann and Katerina GUNTHER, moved to Johannesburg to escape the Nazi regime and ensure a Catholic education for their son. But the father was soon interned in his new homeland because of his German nationality. He moved to South-West Africa (now Namibia) when Magnus was 12, leaving the mother to raise the boy.
After dropping out of medical school at 19, Magnus GUNTHER worked underground in a Johannesburg mine. But he hated having to supervise black workers who were more experienced than he was. Later, while attending the University of the Witwatersrand, he served as president of the Student Representative Council in 1957-58 and led a highly-publicized march through the streets of Johannesburg to protest apartheid at the university. He went on to become vice-president of international relations with the National Union of South African Students. From 1959 to 1964, he worked in Leiden, the Netherlands, with the Co-ordinating Secretariat of the International Student Conference, which represented national student organizations from a number of countries. While there he gave speeches, organized conferences, wrote articles and travelled extensively, working to further the group's fights against racism and colonialism.
A rival organization, based in Prague, was believed to be directed from Moscow. But it was years later before he found out that his own group had been largely financed by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Despite the revelation, he continued his Friendship with an American student leader who had known all along. Friends cite that as an example of his forgiving nature.
Michael Stevenson, now president of Simon Fraser University, was involved in student politics at Witwatersrand in the early sixties. He recalls Magnus GUNTHER returning to South Africa from Holland at great personal risk to speak at a student conference. He showed up "like the Scarlet Pimpernel" with no advance publicity and was greeted as legendary hero.
By then, he was giving support from outside the country to the National Committee of Liberation, later the African Resistance Movement, a clandestine anti-apartheid organization of mostly white Liberals. It was founded in 1960 after 250 unarmed blacks were killed or wounded by police during a rally in the Township of Sharpeville. The group supported bombings and sabotage against property and government installations, as long as no people were killed or injured. African Resistance Movement was crushed by the South African government in 1964 after one member, Adrian Leftwich, testified against his associates under threat of execution. By then a professor at the University of York in England, he was disowned by most African Resistance Movement supporters. But Magnus GUNTHER continued to keep in touch.
"His view was there but for the grace of God go I," says Prof. Leftwich.
In his retirement, Prof. GUNTHER chronicled the history of African Resistance Movement in a chapter written for Vol. I of The Road to Democracy in South Africa, published in 2004. He writes there of his personal involvement in a failed attempt to use a Second World War torpedo boat to transport arms and explosives into South Africa and to bring exiles out. He also cites his various unsuccessful attempts to raise money and obtain explosives for African Resistance Movementusing his international student contacts in Algeria and elsewhere.
Leaving his post in Holland, he obtained a doctorate in political science at the University of North Carolina in the mid-1960s. While there he married his first wife, Phyllis SHAFER. With South Africa refusing to issue him a new passport, he was admitted to Canada in 1966 on a laissez-passer permit, which allowed him to teach at York University in Toronto.
Before long he had bought a 60-hectare farm near Keene, Ontario, with a friend and lived on it for a while with his wife and children. He loved ploughing fields with a tractor because it was one place where he could see instantly the results of his labours, says Phyllis GUNTHER. The professor believed he could teach himself to do anything, she says. So he took a course in plumbing and then installed running water and a bathroom in the dilapidated farmhouse.
In 1975, after Prof. GUNTHER was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at 40, he moved from York University to Trent in Peterborough, which was closer to the farm. Otherwise he refused to slow down. Few people were aware of his suffering, says Derek COHEN, a colleague at York. As always Prof. GUNTHER was the centre of attention at any social gathering. Friends say he had an infectious sense of humour, a love of conversation and a sincere concern for the problems of others, as well as a passion for books. While at Trent, Prof. GUNTHER supported many aboriginal and environmental causes, says Bruce HODGINS, then a history professor. The two were among dozens charged with mischief in 1989 for blocking a logging road in the Temagami wilderness in a bid to protect an old-growth forest. He was detained and fingerprinted, but the charges were dropped before trial.
From 1980 to 1983, Prof. GUNTHER took a leave from Trent to serve as a senior policy adviser with the federal ministry of social development in Ottawa as part of an executive exchange. Contacts he made then helped him win a number of future contracts with the federal government. In 1980, the professor separated from his first wife. Six years later, he married Jan DE CRESPIGNY, an Ottawa psychologist who had been born in South Africa.
In 1990, he wrote a report for the federal department of Indian affairs on the overlapping land claims of the Inuit, Métis and Dene in Canada's Arctic. John Parker, a former Northwest Territories Commissioner, used the research as source material when he advised Ottawa on the boundary line that would separate the new territory of Nunavut from the Northwest Territories. He calls Prof. GUNTHER's report "an important piece of work, well-done."
In 1992, the professor found himself embroiled in controversy after he was commissioned to write a report for the same department on the relocation of Inuit families in the early 1950s from Northern Quebec to the high Arctic. The Inuit were seeking compensation from Ottawa, claiming they were dumped and abandoned in order for Canada to assert sovereignty in the far north. Prof. GUNTHER's 400-page report, along with testimony he gave the following year at a royal commission into the issue, asserted that the Inuit were moved to an area where game was abundant, that the government had not acted maliciously and the relocation was actually a success story.
One critic of his stand was Andrew J. Orkin, a McGill professor. Ironically Prof. Orkin was also a South African and an opponent of apartheid, although the men were not aware of this link. In an opinion article in The Globe and Mail, Prof. Orkin wrote: "In short, the government-commissioned report is a systematic assault on the veracity and understanding of the Inuit who have testified about the event and its effects on their lives and society. As a result, it compounds the profound wrong done to them by the relocation itself."
But Sheila Meldrum, a former bureaucrat in the Indian affairs department, says Prof. GUNTHER produced a thorough and competent report, and was criticized only because opinion was polarized on the issue. The royal commission's findings were that Canada's attempt to restore "the natural state of the Inuit" had been "dishonest, inhumane and illegal." Eventually Ottawa paid $10-million in compensation.
After taking early retirement from Trent in 1998, Prof. GUNTHER continued to travel widely in pursuit of his political interests. He attended a United Nations summit against racism in Durban in 2001, was a member of Oxfam Canada's observer mission to the fist post-apartheid elections in South Africa in 1994, and travelled to Ukraine over Christmas in 2004 to monitor elections there.
Magnus GUNTHER was born on September 17, 1934, in Munich. He died in Ottawa on March 7, 2006, two months after being diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas. He was 71. He is survived by his wife Jan de Crespigny, and by his children David, Katherine, Julian and Harriet. He also leaves his first wife Phyllis and three grandchildren.

KOLOLIAN, Kevork -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Page M5
Kevork KOLOLIAN was in his 60s before Armenia became independent and he was able to visit his ancestral homeland.
"It was a dream that had come true for him," said his daughter, Nairy SHAHINIAN.
"There was an initial group of business people who decided that Armenia needed help, for economic reasons. So he actually established a group… which brought bright young Armenians to Canada for training."
Growing up in Egypt, where his parents had fled to escape persecution, Mr. KOLOLIAN married a fellow Armenian and trained as a tool-and-die maker. But they became concerned about the regime of General Gamel Abdel Nasser and moved to Canada with their young children.
"They left all of their assets behind and decided that they were going to do this for the family," Ms. SHAHINIAN recalls.
Settling first in a small apartment at Dufferin and Lawrence, the family moved within a year to a bungalow in what was then the village of Weston. Mr. KOLOLIAN, who ran a small manufacturing company, and his wife, Armenouhi, built ties in their community and were major benefactors of the A.R. S Kololian Armenian school, which taught culture, language and a full regular curriculum.
"The Toronto community was tiny when we first arrived, it was probably 1,000 Armenians in the Greater Toronto Area," said his son, Vahan KOLOLIAN. " But Armenians go looking for Armenians in various parts of the world. Soon enough, I had to go to Saturday [Armenian] school, much to my chagrin."
Mr. KOLOLIAN died on March 17 after suffering from heart disease. He was 78.
