Tom McEWAN, Educator And Entrepreneur (1924-2006)
As a young businessman, he helped to merge three small colleges and create what is today the University of Guelph
By F.F. Langan, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- People think of the University of Guelph as the place that produced John Kenneth Galbraith. But of course he never went there. He graduated from the Ontario Agriculture College in 1932, 32 years before the University of Guelph was founded by the likes of Tom McEWAN.
Along with a number of other key players, Mr. McEWAN worked to bring together the three colleges that formed the University of Guelph: the Ontario Agriculture College, the Macdonald Institute and the Ontario Veterinary College. He was the first chairman of the board of the University, but before that, he had been one of the people overseeing the three colleges that were at the core of the new university.
"He was a visionary. Around 1960 he said we have the basis of a university in Guelph, and he and other people worked hard to make it happen," says Bill WINEGARD, who was hired by Mr. McEWAN as president of the University of Guelph in 1967. "They hired the best people, including someone from Harvard, to make sure they got the best physical plant. He got a lot done playing the role of the tough businessman, though I found underneath he was a cream puff."
The expansion of universities in Ontario was an idea whose time had come. It was pushed by John ROBARTS, then the premier of Ontario, and his education minister Bill DAVIS. York, Brock, Laurentian and others were all founded in this period.
"Tom was fundamental in setting up the University of Guelph, and transforming it from the three founding colleges," said Alastair SUMMERLEE, the current president of the University of Guelph. "At the time he was a young businessman in his late thirties. He fought to get the property from the provincial government."
There were less than 1,000 students when Guelph opened in 1964. Today there are 20,000 regular students and 50,000 in so-called distance learning.
Tom McEWAN was born in Scotland, not the country but the hamlet in southwestern Ontario. His father was a farmer and he went to a one-room school house and then to high school at Delta Collegiate in Hamilton. Before he could finish high school he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, and qualified as a pilot.
Flying Officer McEWAN was assigned to Coastal Command, whose main job was to patrol Canada's coastline looking for submarines. The flights were long, often in rough weather, and almost always at lower altitudes where the ride was bumpier. Flights could last 12 hours. The Royal Canadian Air Force had seven squadrons of planes flying long-range patrols, many of them older bombers such as the Anson and the Hudson, small aircraft made obsolete by wartime aeronautical advances offered by four-engined Lancasters and Liberators.
After the war, Mr. McEWAN went to a special school set up for veterans who needed to finish high school, but who would be humiliated returning to a regular classroom. It was called the Veterans Rehabilitation School.
He then went to university at Queen's where many of his classmates were veterans, their education paid for by the federal government. He recalled that single veterans received a living allowance of $60 a month, married veterans $90. He was president of the graduating Arts class at Queen's in 1950.
His first job was as a sales representative for Union Carbide Canada and he stayed in that type of business all his life. He later moved to a firm called Sterling Rubber, where he became one of the owners and eventually president. The company manufactured specialty medical products such as syringes and medical gloves.
Later, the firm was sold to an American company, Beckton Dickinson, and he stayed on for a while as president of the Canadian division. In the early 1960's he was elected a school trustee in Guelph and then was head of the Board of Regents of the Federated Colleges, the three institutions that made up the University.
One of the problems with building a university in a small town such as Guelph was there was no place to house the students. While others set about planning and organizing the academic life of the new university, Mr. McEWAN dealt with the physical side of things. He put together a 1,000-acre campus, with student residences in the centre and on the edges of the university.
"At one time Guelph had the highest residential capacity of any university in the province, and it is still very high," said Mr. WINEGARD. " Tom even bought several acres around the edge of the campus and donated the land to the university."
Dr. Mordechai ROZANSKI, who was president of the University of Guelph from 1993 to 2003, also described Mr. McEWAN as forward thinking.
"Tom was a central player in the conception and formation of the university," Doctor Rozanski told the Guelph Mercury. "I have never seen anybody so dedicated to our successor generations."
He was "a founding father of the university in 1964 and a proponent of public education in general," added Doctor ROZANSKI, whose academic life began at McGill University in Montreal, but who is now president of Rider University in N.J.
By all accounts, Mr. McEWAN had not realized the scope of the job he had taken on when he agreed to join the university's board of governors. "As about the youngest and poorest member of the board of governors, I expected to be able to sit back and learn from the older and much wiser members," he wrote in papers found in the university archives. "I was shocked when they elected me chair."
The Guelph Mercury recently ran an editorial praising Mr. McEWAN's work in leaving a campus plan that has survived. " McEWAN helped to shape what the school is today, helping to wrote the long-term development plan that continues to determine some of the school's priorities to this day -- academic buildings situated to allow pedestrian traffic and ensuring the campus retains its residential nature."
During his time at the university he continued his business life, and ran a firm called Howmet of Canada. In the 1970's he was chairman of a government committee to study costs in education in Ontario. Later, he served on the board of the Workmen's Compensation Board.
Along with education, Mr. McEWAN was heavily involved in charities for disabled children. He was president of the Ontario Society for Crippled Children.
His son Ian remembered his father had few hobbies outside work, though he was a keen golfer and member of the Mississauga Golf Club. He also loved the music of the Second World War, especially the big bands of Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller.
Thomas Arthur McEWAN was born in Scotland, Ontario, on April 5, 1924. He died suddenly in Guelph, Ontario, on May 13, 2006. He was 82. He is survived by his wife Bessie and his children, Ian and Melanie.

ROZSA, Theodore (1915-2006)
Theodore ROZSA passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 2nd at his home in Calgary. Ted was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan on June 12, 1915. He was the son of a Hungarian immigrant who instilled in him his life long commitment to the value of hard work. In 1933, he completed his high school diploma with honors and in 1936, two and a half years after he entered what is now Michigan Technological University, his Bachelor of Science degree in geology, with honors. Ted was a pioneer in the post-war oil industry. His first and only employment after graduation was with the Shell Oil Company where he spent thirteen years managing seismic exploration from the Gulf of Mexico to the tundra of northern Alberta. In 1950, one year after relocating to Calgary to assume the position of chief geophysicist for Canada, he left Shell to start his own company, Frontier Geophysical. Over the next forty years, Ted utilized his considerable skills as a geophysicist and geological engineer to build three petroleum exploration companies in southern Alberta. For these accomplishments, in 1987, he was awarded the first Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists gold medal for his integrity, outstanding professionalism, and significant contribution to the application and business development of Exploration Geophysics. Ted actively supported his community by sharing his financial success. His capital contributions launched the construction of the Rozsa Centre at the University of Calgary, and the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts at Michigan Technological University, where he also established a student scholarship fund. Capital support was also given to the Banff Centre and Centre for the Performing Arts. Ted made a large endowment to the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra for the Maestro's Chair, as well as giving significant annual operational funding to the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Calgary Opera, Honens, in addition to supporting the Glenbow Museum, Theatre Calgary, Foothills Hospital and many other charitable causes. Mr. ROZSA received numerous honors for his professional contributions, philanthropy and civic leadership. In 1990, he received an Honorary Doctor of Engineering from Michigan Technological University and an Honorary Doctor of Laws from the University of Calgary. In 1991, he was named an Officer of the Order of Canada, of which he was most proud. Other honors he received include: the Michigan Technological University Silver Medal (1988), the Canadian Music Council Award (1989), the Government of Canada Lescarbot Award (1991), Rotary Integrity Award (1994), Edmund C. Bovey Award for Business and the Arts (2002), Lieutenant Governor Award (2004), Alberta Centennial Medal (2005). Ted's life-long recreation was the game of golf. He was one of the early Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists members who founded the Doodlebug Golf Tournament in 1953, in which he played for thirty-eight consecutive years and is remembered through the annual Ted Rozsa Doodlebug Award. He was an active member of the Calgary Golf and Country Club for over fifty years. Ted is survived by his loving wife of sixty-six years, Lola ROZSA two daughters, Ruth Ann RAYNER, and Mary Rozsa DE COQUET; and son Ted and wife Diana ROZSA; all of whom reside in Calgary. He has seven grandchildren: Howie and wife Hella NORDSTROM of Sweden; Scott and wife Paige ROZSA of Dallas, Texas; T.J. ROZSA and Stacy ROZSA of Los Angles, California; Karen and husband Jim RICE, Mary Cristina Rozsa DE COQUET, and Charles ROZSA of Calgary; and four great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Charles and wife Mildred ESTES, of Sherman, Texas. Ted loved his family and was highly respected in the community. He was pleased to have watched Calgary grow, and to have had the opportunity to 'give back' to the community and support that growth. He will be remembered for his brilliance, hard work, integrity, and philanthropic generosity which will be carried on by the Rozsa Foundation and the annual Rozsa Award for Excellence in Arts Management. A memorial service will be held at Grace Presbyterian Church (1009, 15th Avenue S.W.), Thursday, March 9 at 2: 30 p.m. Heritage Family Funeral Services 'Calgary Crematorium Chapel' Telephone (403) 299-0111
