MATHESON, Evelyn Florence
By Joan STEPHENS and Kathy NEALE, Page A16
Nurse, educator, aunt. Born in Pithapuram, India on November 21, 1921. Died in Dundas, Ontario, on December 6, as the result of heart failure, aged 85.
Mahatma Gandhi said "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Evelyn MATHESON believed passionately in this principle and lived her life striving to make positive changes in a troubled world. A remarkably intelligent, compassionate and generous soul, she sought and tackled new challenges with courage, commitment and a keen sense of responsibility.
Evelyn was the eldest child of Arthur MATHESON and Sybil Grace MacHUM, Baptist ministers working as missionaries in South India. She attended Breeks Memorial School in Ootacumund, graduating with a Senior Cambridge Certificate in 1937. Evelyn continued her studies in Canada, and before she turned 20 received a B.A. from Acadia University. In 1944, she graduated from the School of Nursing at the Toronto General Hospital, where she worked on the wards until 1950. After completing an M.A. at Columbia University in New York, she returned to Toronto General Hospital as Educational Director of the School of Nursing.
In 1953, looking for new challenges, Evelyn joined the World Health Organization and was sent to British North Borneo. She tackled this first assignment with an enthusiasm that even the loss of her bungalow and all of her belongings in a fire could not dampen. Early on in her international career, Evelyn realized that her affiliation with World Health Organization might allow her to enrich the lives of those less fortunate. When one of her young Chinese students in Borneo appeared academically gifted, Evelyn persuaded the organization to fund a scholarship enabling him to study in Australia and become a doctor. In 1955, she was stationed in the Sudan where she established the Khartoum Nursing College, which continues to train nurses to this day.
While living in the Sudan, Evelyn witnessed several governmental coups d'état, which she once described as rebels "charging in from the West, riding camels and brandishing spears." From 1962-1964, on one of her home leaves in Canada, Evelyn served as assistant professor of nursing at McGill University. She went on to become the World Health Organization's Regional Nursing Adviser based in Alexandria, Egypt.
"Determined to visit every continent and island", she also had postings in Somalia, Yemen and South Korea. It was in Korea that Evelyn established a primary health-care program in the rural countryside. Her trips to outlying villages in what was initially a small sector of South Korea later resulted in a health-care decree adopted by the entire country. Her final career appointment was senior World Health Organization nurse educator at the school of nursing in Rarotonga, Cook Islands.
Evelyn retired from the World Health Organization in 1981 and returned to Canada, settling in Dundas, Ontario Her retirement provided her with the opportunity to become an avid gardener, environmentalist, Liberal Party member, and patron of the arts. She was a contributing member of the National Ballet, the Toronto Symphony, the Shaw Festival, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Royal Ontario Museum. She was likewise a passionate advocate for world peace; she believed, in the words of Benedict Spinoza, that "peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice."
Evelyn truly dedicated her life to bettering the lives of others all around the world. To quote Dag Hammarskjold, one of her heroes, "We all know that if we feel that what we do is purposeful, not to say essential for the progress of men and human society in a broader sense… we are willing to accept hardships and serve gladly for the sake of serving." Evelyn certainly lived a purposeful life, bringing education and health care to those living in less fortunate regions of the world.
Joan and Kathy are Evelyn's nieces.
