Christopher YOUNG, Journalist (1926-2006)
Former editor of the Ottawa Citizen and head of Southam News left management to become an award-winning foreign correspondent, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A journalist with a keen eye for details and a fluid, descriptive style, Christopher YOUNG was an award-winning foreign correspondent, a former editor of the Ottawa Citizen, and a columnist who was respected for the soundness of his editorial positions.
"He was a very stylish writer, with a marvellous eye for details," his former colleague Charles KING told Canadian Press last week. Describing Mr. YOUNG as "a down-to-earth intellectual" who "wasn't taken in by puffery or power," Mr. KING said he was "a man of absolute integrity."
Christopher Moody YOUNG was the only son and eldest of three children of Norman YOUNG, a Rhodes scholar and teacher, and Grace MOODY of Winnipeg. His parents married in Winnipeg in 1925 in a double wedding with Ms. MOODY's older sister Maryon and a young Ontario academic and future prime minister named Lester PEARSON. Ms. MOODY's mother took her maternal duties very seriously when it came to finding husbands for her daughters, believing that a younger child could not marry until the older one was suitably settled.
After happily resolving the marital protocol issues, Mr. YOUNG and his bride went out to Ghana in West Africa, in what was then a British colony called the Gold Coast, to teach in a native school that had been founded by Sir Frederick Guggisberg, a Canadian-born mining engineer and one-time governor of the colony. Ms. YOUNG defied the custom of the time, which determined that white women went back to England to have their babies, and insisted that her son be born in Accra.
The family returned to Winnipeg when Christopher was 3, and his father became the founding headmaster at Ravencourt's School (now Saint_John's Ravenscourt) in 1929. When the Second World War broke out, Christopher's father enlisted in the armed forces and was killed in the Allied raid on Dieppe in August, 1942. Christopher was 16 and the only male in a family of four.
After graduating from Saint_John's Ravenscourt in 1943, Christopher YOUNG went to the University of Manitoba, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in 1947 and winning a scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford. That same year he married his first wife, Florence, the daughter of John and Ruby SIRITT. By then, journalism was already in his blood. As an undergraduate, he had worked summers at the now defunct Winnipeg Tribune and he joined the paper full-time in 1949, after he had come down from Oxford with a master's degree.
He worked at the Trib for six years, the last two as news editor. In 1955, the YOUNGs moved to Hamilton after he accepted at job at the Hamilton Spectator as news editor. He was promoted to executive news editor in 1957 and moved to the Southam news service two years later, where he worked as the Ottawa bureau chief from 1960 to 1961.
The following year, he was appointed editor of the Ottawa Citizen, the Southam chain's flagship paper, a post he held for 14 years. As an editor, Mr. YOUNG continued to write elegant and thoughtful columns and articles on local, national and world events. He won a Bowater Award in 1961 for a series on unemployment. These were years of sadness as well as accomplishment. His first wife died in 1966, after a long illness, leaving him a widower with three daughters to raise. He married Ann COFFIN, a theatre officer at the Canada Council, the following year. Together they had a daughter, Rachel.
In 1975, Mr. YOUNG became general manager of Southam News, a position he held until 1981. After more than 15 years in management, Mr. YOUNG wanted a new challenge and, on the cusp of 50, he sent himself into the field as a foreign correspondent. He was London bureau chief for Southam News from 1981 to 1984, (winning a National Newspaper Award in 1982 for his reporting on the massacre at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Lebanon) and then did a two-year stint as national political columnist back in Ottawa before heading up the Moscow bureau from 1987 to 1989. He won another National Newspaper Award for a series on Mongolia in 1988 and a Citation of Merit in 1989 for stories about pollution in the former Soviet Union.
In 1996, Conrad BLACK bought the Southam chain of newspapers. He and Mr. YOUNG did not share the same editorial viewpoint, especially about Israel and about the way Mr. BLACK's Hollinger corporation was running The Jerusalem Post.
"Chris was old school," Toronto Star columnist Jim TRAVERS told Canadian Press last week. "He believed newspapers had to be edgy and aggressive, but he also thought they had to contribute to a public understanding of public affairs.
"He saw journalism as a public service and feared that under Conrad BLACK it was being reduced all to business."
The Southam papers subsequently stopped running the column that Mr. YOUNG had been writing after his retirement.
Normally an articulate man, for whom verbal and written fluency were skills he took for granted, he began having trouble expressing himself in the mid-1990s. His mother had died of Alzheimer's when she was 92, so many of the symptoms were tragically familiar. After a year of waiting lists and tests, his fears were confirmed with a diagnosis in December, 1998. He was 72.
Bravely, he decided to write about his illness and how it affected his life in an article for Maclean's magazine entitled Descent into Alzheimer's. After a career of reporting on events, he turned his journalistic skills on himself and wrote candidly, with considerable assistance from his wife Ann, about the scourge that affects one in 10 adults over 65.
"People like me don't look funny, babble, cry out or make unseemly noises in public," he wrote, describing a recent holiday he had taken with his wife to California, where he had gotten lost on a tour of Alcatraz prison in San Francisco Bay. "Misjudging the situation, I took a boat returning to Fisherman's Wharf and then walked for hilly blocks until I realized I was lost, and that the best bet was to retrace my steps."
Somehow he made his way back to the wharf, but he "chose the wrong ferry dock and the wrong people to ask for help." Finally a sensitive woman heard him say "Alcatraz" and took him to the correct dock where he found his distraught wife. "The efforts of all the National Park Service rangers who now man the prison had not turned me up, so I became the first man to escape from Alcatraz and survive," he reported with his characteristic wit.
The article, which was the cover story on March 13, 2000, generated a huge response -- bigger than any story he had written in 42 years as a professional journalist. So, with even more help from his wife, he wrote a follow-up story on an Alzheimer's Society site, talking about his life and some of his fellow sufferers and paying tribute to the Friends, family and former colleagues who shared his company, wise in the knowledge that the disease, however devastating, is not "contagious."
Christopher Moody YOUNG was born in Accra, the Gold Coast (now Ghana) on July 9, 1926. He died in Ottawa of complications from Alzheimer's disease on March 21, 2006. He was 79. He was predeceased by his first wife, Florence Sirrett, and his eldest daughter, Alix. He is survived by his second wife, Ann, his daughters Sheila, Judy and Rachel, five grandchildren and his three younger sisters.
