LANG, Reginald Stephen
Born December 17, 1936 in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. Died peacefully, September 20, 2007 at Princess Margaret Hospital.
B.E. (Civil Engineering, M.Sc. (Community Planning), Ed.D., F.C.I.P., R.P.P. (Retired), Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University.
Survived by his wife Donna CARAVAGGIE, his two daughters Michelle LANG, Kearney, Nebraska; and Mary-Ellen Dean LANG (Alan DEAN,) Edinborough, Scotland. Loving brother to Marlene HAGEN (Pat), White Rock, British Columbia; Dennis LANG (Joan), Burlington, Ontario; and Pat LANG (Debbie,) Edmonton, Alberta.
Reg was a passionate, life-long learner, whose career included community planning, environment impact assessment, the study of strategic development and the management of organizational change, but this was only part of his intellectual pursuits. He had a natural ability to pursue many interests at the same time and he loved to talk about ideas. These conversations would often take place at the dinner table, where Reg greatly enjoyed many years of delicious meals and excellent wine (and good television afterwards). He loved hiking, both in Canada and Britain, but it was the daily walk in his yard to check the garden and watch the birds visiting the feeder that was his most constant communion with the natural world.
Friends may call at the Thompson Funeral Home, 530 Industrial Parkway South (northeast corner of Yonge and Industrial Parkway, 905-727-5421), Aurora from 10 a.m. Tuesday until the time of the Memorial Service in our Chapel at 11 a.m. Inurnment Aurora Cemetery.
In memory of Reg, the family would appreciate donations to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. The family would like to express their deepest appreciation for the care that Reg received here, and their heartfelt thanks to Doctor Mark MINDEN, Doctor Andrzej LUTYNSKI, the staff of the Transfusion Unit, Unit 15a where Reg received his initial treatment and Unit 15b where he passed away.

Surgeon scored 1962 breakthrough with world's first coronary care unit
Doctor who had served on HMCS Prince Robert in wartime later maintained a thriving practice and taught generations of medical students at the University of Toronto, writes Sandra Martin
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Back in the early 1960s, when prescribing blood thinners was the standard treatment for acute heart attacks, Robert (Bob) MacMILLAN and his colleague Kenneth (Ken) BROWN were disturbed by the 40 per cent mortality rate in their recovering patients at the Toronto General Hospital. Some of these patients, who seemed very well when the night nurse checked on them, were found dead the following morning. The cause seemed obvious: a disturbance in the rhythm of the heart's electrical system, or ventricular fibrillation. But what triggered the fatal imbalance remained a mystery.
In 1962, the two doctors established the world's first coronary care unit at Toronto General Hospital. Within a year they had reduced the mortality rate by 10 per cent. The significance of the coronary unit was "huge," said cardiologist Douglas WIGLE, a former colleague and now professor emeritus at the department of medicine at the University of Toronto.
"Bob was a superb teacher with a very dry wit who made a point of being charming and friendly to students when it was more typical in those days for doctors to be austere and professorial," said hematologist Michael BAKER, an intern under Doctor MacMILLAN in the mid-1960s and now physician-in-chief at university health network.
"I learned the technical aspects of cardiology from him but, far more important, looking back, I learned the human side of being a prominent physician," said Doctor BAKER. "He was pleasant, he had a sense of humour, he had a life outside the hospital and he was interested in us as people."
Robert Laidlaw MacMILLAN was born into a medical family in Toronto during the First World War. His father, Robert Johnson MacMILLAN, was an anesthetist at the Wellesley Hospital and his mother, Merle (née LAIDLAW,) was a nurse. The family, which included Bob's younger brother Hugh (who also became a distinguished doctor) and his sister Mary, lived first on Admiral Road and then on Dunvegan in Forest Hill.
When Bob was about 13, his father decided to spend a year in Europe to complete his medical training, which had been truncated by the war. The three children were sent to the Lycée Jacquard in Switzerland, where they learned to ski and to speak French. When the MacMILLANs returned to Toronto, the boys enrolled at University of Toronto Schools, then a boys-only elite private academic institution. They were both burly and very athletic and were known as Big Beef and Little Beef. Bob graduated in 1934 and went that fall to Trinity College in the University of Toronto, where he played college rugby and hockey, and earned an honours degree in biological and medical sciences in 1938 and a medical degree three years later.
Meanwhile, an 18-year-old Welsh woman named Eluned (Lyn) CAREY- EVANS, had graduated from Roedean School near Brighton in Sussex, and set off on a tour of Canada in August of 1939, having been assured by her grandfather, the former British prime minister David Lloyd GEORGE, that fears of war breaking out were grossly exaggerated. She was in Sault Ste. Marie on September 3, 1939, when British prime minister Neville Chamberlain declared war on Germany.
Stranded without money, connections, or winter clothes, Lyn was rescued by Friends of her family who arranged for her to stay at St. Hilda's, the women's residence at Trinity College. The university allowed her to attend medical classes (based on her English qualifications) and that is how, coming out of the library with her arms loaded with borrowed books, she literally ran into Bob MacMILLAN, the older brother of her classmate Hugh. After he got down on his hands and knees to retrieve her books, he invited her for a milkshake, and that was that. "He was so funny always; he was such an interesting person," she said in a telephone interview late last week.
They were married three years later on Valentine's Day, 1942, at Trinity College, with no member of her family able to cross the Atlantic to attend the ceremony. By then, he had enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve. They made their first home in Victoria, British Columbia, which they both loved, but she returned to Toronto when he was posted overseas as a surgeon lieutenant commander on HMCS Prince Robert. The ship, which had been designed as a coastal ferry for Canadian National's Vancouver-to-Alaska run, was the vessel that had carried King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on the round trip from Vancouver to Victoria as part of a Royal tour in May, 1939. It was then converted to an armed merchant cruiser for convoy duty and escorted Canadian troops to Hong Kong in October of 1941 for the ill-fated defence of the British crown colony against the Japanese.
By the time Lt.-Cmdr. MacMILLAN climbed aboard, Prince Robert was an anti-aircraft cruiser. It sailed for Plymouth via the Panama Canal, picking up a huge bunch of green bananas on route which Bob decided to present to his in-laws as a getting-acquainted gift. Their first sight of him, as he emerged on the station platform in North Wales in 1943, was of a tall, husky man with a red beard bent under the weight of his bounty of ripe bananas a fruit they hadn't seen in years. They were charmed, according to Lyn MacMILLAN who recollected that her family "ate bananas until they were blue in the face."
Lt.-Cmdr. MacMILLAN remained on Prince Robert for the duration of the war, during which the ship had more conversions and sailed more operational miles than any other in the Royal Canadian Navy. For much of the conflict she was the navy's largest and most heavily armed ship, and later had a final life as a luxury ocean liner.
While her husband was overseas, Mrs. MacMILLAN gave birth to their first child, the historian Margaret MacMILLAN, now warden of St. Antony's College, Oxford. Four more children followed, Ann, a London-based Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcaster Tom, a financier; Robert, a urologist; and David, an energy consultant.
After he was demobilized at the end of the Pacific War, Doctor MacMILLAN was joined by his growing family where he did post-graduate studies in London and Oxford and qualified as a Member of the Royal College of Physicians in 1947. The next year, the MacMILLANs moved back across the Atlantic so he could take up a position at Toronto General Hospital as senior intern in hematology. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (Canada) in 1948 and began his long career as a cardiologist on staff at the Toronto General Hospital, initially doing work on blood clotting and platelets.
In the early 1960s, Doctor MacMILLAN and his colleague Doctor K.W. BROWN decided to isolate and observe cardiac patients closely to see if they could determine the factors contributing to high mortality rates in supposedly recovering patients. Federal and provincial governments provided research grants; a private donor, Percy Gardiner, contributed the start-up funds to hire extra nurses to monitor the patients on a 24-hour basis especially in the critical 48-hour period after admission, and the Toronto General Hospital supplied a small room containing four beds separated by curtains.
When the unit opened on March 12, 1962, four patients were attached to improvised electro-cardiogram machines to record every beat of their hearts. Nurses became expert at recognizing complications and instituting life-saving procedures while waiting for doctors to arrive. After a year, this team approach and quick interventions to adjust or restart heart-beat rhythms had reduced the death rate by 10 per cent. The two doctors described their study in an article in the medical journal The Lancet on August 17, 1963, which enabled them to claim credit for establishing the first coronary intensive-care unit in the world.
Despite this medical breakthrough and the fact that Doctor MacMILLAN remained co-director of the coronary unit (which quickly expanded to eight beds) for the next decade, his calling was not primarily as a researcher. Above all, he was a practitioner and a professor, establishing an extensive private practice and teaching generations of medical students at the Toronto General Hospital and the University of Toronto. From his first position as a clinical teacher and an assistant physician in 1952, he rose steadily through the medical and academic ranks, becoming an assistant professor in 1965, an associate professor and senior staff physician in 1968 and professor of medicine and head of the division of general internal medicine at Toronto General Hospital in 1976. He had to retire from teaching when he turned 65 in 1982, but maintained his medical practice for another decade and served as a consultant to the province's Workman's Compensation Board when he was even older.
Dr. MacMILLAN was also a fearless and accomplished traveller and athlete who loved the outdoors. He delighted in canoeing, scuba diving, hiking, camping and playing tennis and skiing in remote locations only accessible by helicopter well into his late 70s. In addition, he and his wife had an active country life on a farm in Vaughan, Ontario, north of Toronto (which his father had bought in 1934) where, among other activities, he kept bees.
The MacMILLANs were at the farm in 2001 when he recognized that he was having a heart attack and told his wife to drive him to the local hospital - fast - where he read his own cardiogram and diagnosed a clot in his heart. The next morning he had a massive coronary. After several weeks in hospital he was transferred to the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, where after six weeks in residence and six months as an outpatient he gradually learned to walk and talk again. "We had six happy years," said Mrs. MacMILLAN. At the beginning of this year, his health declined seriously and he had to go into a special care unit.
Robert Laidlaw MacMILLAN was born May 23, 1917, in Toronto. He died of complications from heart disease on September 5, 2007 at East York General Hospital in Toronto. He was 90. He is survived by his wife Lyn, five children, 12 grandchildren and his extended family.

MORRISON, Valerie Dymoke (née WHITE/WHYTE)
Valerie died peacefully in her ninetieth year on June 14, 2007 in Halifax with family by her side. She was born in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, England, the second daughter of T. Charles and Grace Lillian (CARLILE) WHITE/WHYTE. She was the dearly loved wife of the late Doctor Allan Bruce MORRISON, who died June 14, 1990. Valerie was a graduate of The Royal College of Music, London, receiving both ARCM and GRSM degrees. During the war years she was music mistress at Newcastle Church High School (evacuated to Alnwick Castle) and later at Wisbech High School. She met Allan, a Canadian soldier, when he visited, while on leave, her sister at their home in Wisbech. After a brief wartime courtship, they corresponded during his years of graduate study at Columbia University. In 1948, she and Allan married a few days after her arrival on the Aquitania at Pier 21. Valerie resumed her teaching career in 1967, and derived great enjoyment from her many piano students. Beyond her family, many dear Friends and music, she took great pleasure in swimming. Surely no one enjoyed the Waegwoltic pool more. She was unapologetic about the time she spent writing poetry. As the youngest generation observed, 'Grandma was an artist.' Valerie was predeceased by her infant daughter Diana and her sister Heather. She is survived by her sister Pamela, Southport, England; her four children, Elizabeth (Daniel HUGHES,) Heather (David TRANT,) Victoria (Michael MITCHELL) and Charles (Francesca;) her grandchildren Michael, Stephanie, Katherine and Victoria HUGHES, Katie, Emily, William and Pamela TRANT, Jeffrey and Emily MITCHELL, and Jacqueline MORRISON; honorary grandchildren, Tina RICHICHI and Jonathan HUGHES. The family would like to acknowledge the kind attention that Michelle McIntyre has given Valerie for many years, and the unwavering support of Albert Doyle, who was her 'ever present help in time of trouble'. More recently, the loving, expert care provided by Cathy Rouse, Holly Bell and Denise Ruppe enabled Valerie to remain at home until her final illness. We will always remember their kindness. The family is also grateful to the staff of 9 Lane at the QEII Health Sciences Centre for their compassionate care of our mother. A memorial service will take place at the Cathedral Church of All Saints (College St.) on Monday, the 18th of June, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. with a reception to follow in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Dartmouth Boys and Girls Club, 60 Farrell Street, Dartmouth B3H 4B3. E-mail condolences to: condolences.snow@aliantzinc.ca Requiescat in Pace.

He was Canada's 'dean of labour journalists'
By James RUSK, Page S8
In an era when reporters joined newspapers and often stayed on a beat for life, Wilf LIST of The Globe and Mail set the standard for labour reporters.
Through his coverage of turbulent strikes in the 1950s and 1960s, of internal problems in the labour movement and of the political influence of labour at a time when it was much more powerful force in society than today, he also became an important figure himself.
That influence was the product of Mr. LIST's reputation for fairness and impartiality. "He understood the players and the issues," Canadian Auto Workers president Buzz Hargrove said yesterday.
In 1968, labour minister Bryce Mackasey cited Mr. LIST's influence when, the national railways reached a mediated agreement with their non-operating employees on a new contract - before the old one had expired, the first time that had happened since Confederation.
After the settlement, the minister told reporters that he had appointed the mediator after Mr. LIST wrote an article commenting that bargaining between the unions and the railways had become a ritual that made a mockery of collective bargaining.
That fit Mr. LIST's view of his role. After a half-century as a labour reporter, he told an industrial-relations conference that newspapers "are one of the most effective media for both union and management to get their case to the workers and the people who may influence the employees."
Ian CARMAN, a former editor of Report on Business, said Mr. LIST was an invaluable reporter, one who was so good in covering labour disputes that senior company executives sometimes found out the details of a labour settlement at their company from their morning paper. "He had the contacts, and wherever there was a labour dispute or some kind of strike going on, he was able to get inside with all the workers."
Like so many young people who came of age during the Depression, Mr. LIST was forced to start working at a young age. His father died when he was 14, and in 1934, Mr. LIST left Harbord Collegiate at 15 to work at the Spitzer and Mills advertising agency to support his mother.
In 1942, he joined The Globe and Mail, and in the late 1940s, took over the labour beat. He quickly established his credentials as a top reporter - in the National Newspaper Awards of 1950, he earned a citation of merit for news reporting. A year later, he won an honourable mention, and in 1952, he became one of the first Globe and Mail reporters to garner a National Newspaper Award: first prize for feature writing with a series on labour and sociological developments in Quebec, which was tied to the coverage of a textile strike.
At the awards ceremony, Globe managing editor W.T. MUNNS said Mr. LIST had the coldly analytical approach necessary to impartial reporting of labour issues.
Mr. LIST knew everyone in the Canadian and U.S. labour movements. In 1962, he travelled to Washington to interview Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters from 1957 until the mid-1960s. The grinding taping session lasted three hours and produced a long and penetrating feature in The Globe Magazine, plus a radio program that Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio put together from Mr. LIST's reel-to-reel tapes.
His reputation for fairness stayed with him through his tenure on the labour beat. In the early 1970s, he was held in such high esteem that the Trudeau government offered him a seat on the Anti-Inflation Board. Mr. LIST turned Ottawa down, just as he turned aside job offers from other publications. He remained with The Globe until retiring in 1984.
After that, the United Steelworkers of America set up an annual award for newspapers and named it after Mr. LIST, "the dean of labour journalists in Canada."
In retirement, he continued to write freelance articles for The Globe and also found a new role in labour affairs as a member of the Public Review Board, an impartial agency set up the Canadian Auto Workers in 1985 to deal with member complaints against the union. Mr. LIST was active on the board for the remainder of his life. Earlier this week, he participated in a conference call regarding a board matter, said chairman Alan Borovoy.
Mr. Borovoy said he so valued Mr. LIST's experience, judgment and impartiality that he sought his opinion even on cases that the former reporter had not heard. "He commanded respect universally. It was largely because everybody knew he would be fair."
Wilf LIST was born in Toronto on October 6, 1919. He died yesterday at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre of heart problems. He was 88. He is survived by his wife, Ethel; children Marcy, Stephen, Wendy and Cary; grandchildren Samara, Sarah and Shayna; and a sister.
