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.
