Astute, hard-living mining magnate made Noranda into a resource giant
Over a span of nearly four decades, he turned the company into one of the world's largest resource-based conglomerates, writes Sandra MARTIN. By the time he was through, he had helped increase assets from $700-million to $11-billion and become a very big man on Bay Street
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S12
A man who loved a balance sheet and who dedicated his working life to building Noranda into a diversified resources-based conglomerate, Alfred (Alf) POWIS was a new kind of mining executive when he became president of the company in 1968. Instead of clawing his way up the mine shaft and into the executive suite, he began as a mining analyst in the insurance business. While he wasn't an M.B.A. graduate, he thought like one. "He was one smart guy and he did a tremendous job for Noranda. He was a shooter," said long-time colleague, geologist and business executive William (Bill) James.
"He was a bridge between the business sector and the public sector, and he was a very influential and positive one," said Tom Kierans, chair of Council, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. "That's not to say he didn't understand the mining business. He did."
Mr. POWIS also enjoyed a party as much as a director's meeting. An inveterate smoker, and a man who was known to take a drink, he had enormous stamina and drive and loved to be the last man standing, or playing the piano, at social gatherings.
Alfred POWIS was born in Montreal in 1930, the eldest of two sons of Alfred and Sarah (née McCULLOCH.) His father, who was in the insurance business (Chubb), was a whiz squash player, and his mother, a homemaker, was a talented pianist. He grew up in the tony English-speaking enclave of Westmount, playing sports (especially tennis), practising the piano and attending local public schools.
Part of the generation that was too young to fight in the Second World War, he graduated from Westmount High School in 1947, went immediately to McGill University, where he earned a bachelor of commerce degree in 1951, and then to a job as a mining analyst at Sun Life Assurance Co. of Canada. In 1953, he married Shirley HALDENBY, the daughter of an executive at Dominion Securities. Their eldest child, Tim, now a television producer, was born in 1955.
The insurance business led Mr. POWIS to Noranda (now Falconbridge) headquarters in Toronto. In 1955, Mr. POWIS made an appointment with John Ross Bradfield, intending to quiz the mining company's president about Noranda's financials on behalf of his own investor clients at Sun Life. During the interview, Mr. POWIS stumped Mr. Bradfield with so many tough questions that "he felt he better hire the guy," according to Mr. James.
Mr. POWIS took the job, doubling his salary from $300 to $600 a week, and moved his family to Toronto. He and his wife subsequently had two more children, Nancy and Charles (Chuck). His rise at Noranda under Mr. Bradfield, his mentor, was meteoric. In 1958, he was assistant treasurer of the company; 10 years later, he was appointed president and chief executive officer, making him, at 38, one of the youngest chief executive officers in the country. "When I was a kid, every year there seemed to be another announcement of a promotion," his son Tim said in an interview this week.
From then until the mid-1980s, Noranda opened and acquired more than 40 mines, including Mattagami Lake Mines and Brunswick Mining and Smelting, Canadian Electrolyte Zinc, Hemlo Gold Mines, and Noranda Aluminum. In 1977, the same year that Mr. POWIS became chair of the board of Noranda in addition to president and chief executive officer, he divorced his wife and married his secretary, Louise FINLAYSON.
During Mr. POWIS's 40-year tenure at Noranda - he stepped down as chief executive officer in 1990 and chair of the board five years later - the company became one of the world's largest producers of zinc, copper, nickel and aluminum and diversified into forest products and operations in Canada, the United States and Europe and natural gas fields in Alberta and British Columbia. Assets increased from $700-million in 1968 to $11-billion in 1995, according to a citation for Mr. POWIS in the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame.
And yet, such growth has a price. A resources-based company such as Noranda had its share of suitors and predators - especially when the economy flagged. Mr. POWIS "was an exceptionally capable executive" who "knew a great deal about all aspects of his far-flung business," said former Noranda shareholder Conrad Black in an e-mail message.
"I thought he was too preoccupied with who his shareholders were and whether he would retain independence, when his role should have been doing all he could for the share price. He also had great difficulty with the cyclicality of all the resource businesses he was in. When base metals and oil and gas were up, forest products and precious metals would be down, or some such thing. He was a brilliant managerial executive, but a rather impetuous strategic and financial strategist. I always found him a very intelligent, witty, and agreeable companion [and] always a good man to join for dinner or a glass of whisky."
In October of 1979, Brascan acquired Conrad Black's 11-per-cent stake in Noranda, tried to up its ownership to 20 per cent and asked for two seats on the board of directors and one on the executive committee. "We were trying to assert, what we thought was our right to representation on the board, and he resisted that with great charm and effectiveness for some time," said Senator Trevor Eyton, then a principal in Brascan. "He was a very likeable person and highly intelligent. He knew where everybody was buried and he knew all of the facts."
Mr. POWIS "resisted" or outmanoeuvred Brascan's overtures for about two years by increasing its share offerings (and thereby diluting Brascan's holdings in Noranda) and by acquiring half of MacMillan-Bloedel (now Weyerhaeuser), the giant British Columbia forestry-products company. Finally, Brascan joined forces with Caisse de dépot, a Noranda shareholder in Quebec, and formed a new company called Brascade, which owned slightly more than 21 per cent of Noranda's shares.
Armed with this financial battering ram, Brascade had an acrimonious showdown with Mr. POWIS in August of 1981. "Finally, he succumbed and we had the representation we thought we were entitled to," Mr. Eyton said. According to Patricia Best and Ann Shortell in The Brass Ring: Power Influence and the Brascan Empire, that included six seats on the board. But that concession didn't occur until after Mr. POWIS had taken Mr. Eyton into the boardroom, shown him the 12 directors' chairs and told him there was no more room at the table. To which Mr. Eyton says he replied: "We were quite happy to sit in the second row so long as we got in the same room as everybody else."
Over the next few years, which were very tough times in the resource industries as Canada weathered a deep recession in commodity prices, combined with high interest rates, Mr. Eyton came to know Mr. POWIS as a colleague rather than an adversary, from sitting around the (expanded) board table and visiting mine sites that came complete with tours and dinners with the locals. "He always took great pleasure in arriving at these receptions early and being the last to leave, but he'd be the first one at the bus at 7 a.m. the next morning, even though he probably had two or three hours less sleep than any of us," said Mr. Eyton. "I always used to marvel at his physique. It had to have been a very strong one and he must have had very good genes, because he smoked continuously and he drank his share and more," he said. "He had tremendous stamina, great endurance and a very strong will."
Even though Mr. POWIS had been forced to put an extra leaf in the board table, he and his two closest associates, Adam Zimmerman (a chartered accountant from Clarkson Gordon who joined Noranda in 1958 as assistant comptroller and worked as executive vice-president of forestry and aluminum) and Bill James (a consulting geologist who joined the Noranda board in 1968 and began working as executive vice-president of mining in 1974), retained their jobs.
Running Noranda and its satellite companies was more than a full-time job, especially in lean times. "This is no longer a business about acquisitions, but a business of survival," Mr. Kierans, then president of McLeod Young Weir (now ScotiaMcLeod) remembers Mr. POWIS saying at Noranda's annual meeting in 1984. But Mr. POWIS also found time to serve on a number of industry, corporate and broader public boards.
Catholic in his interests and open-minded, he was big on public policy, big as a founding member of the Business Council on National Issues (now the Canadian Council on Chief Executives), big as a founding member of the C.D. Howe Institute, big as a founding member of the British North America Committee and, of course, as anybody in the resources industries would be, big on free trade with the U.S.
"He was very literate in both a financial and economic sense. He had a good mind and he liked to spar and was intellectually curious," said Thomas d'Aquino, president of the Canadian Council on Chief Executives.
In 1977, Mr. POWIS and William (Bill) Twaits of Imperial Oil brought a group of business executives together to form the Business Council on National Issues to forge connections between business and government and to have a share and a voice in the making of public policy. "At the time, the concept of corporate and social responsibility had not yet been born, so it was unusual for people to raise their noses above running their individual companies to raise the biggest issues of the day," said Mr. d'Aquino. "It was a call to arms for chief executives saying this is going to be our organization. That was groundbreaking and what made Alf POWIS a pioneer."
Darcy McKeough, treasurer and economics minister under Ontario premier Bill Davis, said: "Noranda and the mining industry generally knew that they had to get along with government and with the communities they operated in, so he took an interest in public policy, probably with regard to the mining sector, but larger than that as well."
Mr. POWIS had got his feet wet in public policy discussions with government in the early 1970s when he served on the Ontario Committee on Government Productivity. The committee's "massive report" was largely implemented after Mr. Davis became premier in 1971, according to Mr. McKeough.
"Alf got a tremendous insight into the working of the provincial government from that and a great interest in it, and he was also involved in the Mining Association [he served as president of the Mining Association of Canada from 1974 to 1975], and then forestry, and that gave him a window into Ottawa," said Mr. McKeough, who served as a member of the board of Noranda after he left politics in 1978.
Having seen Mr. POWIS from both sides of the public-private divide, Mr. McKeough said he "behaved exactly the same way - interested, knowledgeable and trying to see both points of view." Assessing him as a person of great business and personal integrity, Mr. McKeough said: "The mining industry didn't have the best reputation in those days and Alf was way out in front, insuring that they did."
The last years were not kind to Mr. POWIS, as his body succumbed to a lifetime of hard work, smoking and drinking. He was in a wheelchair when he attended the funeral of Carter, his younger brother, in July. Nearly three weeks ago, he was admitted to hospital after a fall at home.
Alfred (Alf) POWIS was born on September 16, 1930, in Montreal. He died in Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto of emphysema on October 10, 2007. He was 77. He is survived by his wife, Louise, three children and six grandchildren. He also leaves his first wife, Shirley.
A private family funeral is planned, followed by a celebration of his life at the York Club in Toronto on October 23.

HALE, George Morris (1922-2007)
On November 17, 2007, George Morris HALE accepted the starter's call for his divine tee time at 10: 30 a.m. George spent his final days at Kingston General Hospital, within the confines of his beloved alma mater, Queen's University, singing with his loved ones. George's passion for his Welsh heritage was unrivalled even though he came to Canada four years after his birth in Cwmtillery on December 23, 1922. He held St. David's Day celebrations the world over, awarded the Welsh Cup in family competitions (the highest honour attainable) and had a zeal for music - so much so that George's religious affiliation was determined by the quality of the choir. Queen's University offered George more than a diploma (Science '45, Masters '47): he met his true love Mary Lillian CONNER (Arts '45 - one of the famed Goodwin House Girls), forged essential life-long Friendships and instilled in his children the value of a university experience. While 'The Graduate' may have suggested it, George lived the future - an official Canadian Plastics Pioneer. His career course began in Shawinigan Falls and continued to North York, Brampton, Pointe Claire and culminated with the prestigious position as President, China Gulf Plastics Corp. in Taipei, Taiwan. His success afforded George and Mary, often accompanied by good Friends, the opportunity to travel the globe and experience its pleasures. Retiring from the plastics industry in 1976, George resettled the family in St. Catharines where he opened the Marco Polo Shop - keeping Mary and him occupied between golf and bridge games. His final years were spent in Kingston, enjoying the love and companionship of Ruth CHISAMORE, together wreaking havoc at the Kingsdale bridge tables. Predeceased by his wife Mary, granddaughter Michelle, sister Lilian and brother Cyril. Survived by his sister Kitty (Kathleen) and recognized progeny Richard (Skip), Susan (Doug ROUTLEDGE,) Jeff (Ted COOPER,) David (France) and Alison (spinster librarian); grandchildren Michael (Julie), Taben, Devin, Sarah (Dave LANOVAZ), Julie (Nathan LAX), Jordan, John Lee COOPER, Mathieu BOURBONNAIS; great-grand_son Liam LANOVAZ and his dearest companion Ruth CHISAMORE. A celebration of George's life will be held at the Country Squire Inn in Gananoque on November 24, at 7: 00 p.m. For accommodations in the Hale block, call 613-382-3511. Although we are requesting casual attire, George would have preferred 'clothing optional.' Please share your memories with us at www.jamesreidfuneralhome.com. In recognition of his life-long passion for music, in lieu of flowers, please offer a donation to a musical organization of your choice.

The eulogy was given by his sister, Rosemary RITCHIE, who related about growing up on the Old Durham Road, Artemesia Township the son and daughter of John and Sadie (Sarah OLIVER) RITCHIE and attending the Old Durham Road School. She recalled many experiences of their young and teenage years and then of John Oliver going off to train for a nurse. She recalled how he graduated from the Owen Sound General and Marine Hospital then obtained his B.A. from Waterloo University before heading west in 1974.
He chose to live in Delta, British Columbia where his great-uncle and former British Columbia premier, John OLIVER, had settled. There he enjoyed nature, creating a wonderful garden and walking his dogs.
He completed a M.A. at Simon Fraser University and became a teacher at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Douglas College where he taught for 30 years. He was much loved and admired by colleagues and students alike.
He enjoyed music and sang with the Vancouver Bach Choir for several years in performances of Handel's Messiah, the Aida performance at British Columbia Place and subsequent travels to perform in Japan.
Rev. Mark WAUGH of Annesley United read scripture and gave the meditation.
George ACHESON and Marilyn GUY sang several solos and duets during the service.
Les MacKINNON, a cousin, recalled memories of John Oliver as did Katie HARRISON, a classmate.
Others taking part and recalling memories were Joe TAILOR/TAYLOR, Lynn MOREWOOD, Katherine HALL, and Mary HALL.
All classmates were presented with roses upon entering the church and at a specific time during the service went forward and placed them on the table at front of the church.

RITCHIE, John Weir
It is with sadness, yet recognition of a life well-lived, that the family announces that John Weir RITCHIE departed from us on July 6, 2007 at Rockwood Terrace in Durham.
Beloved son of Edgar and Bessie RITCHIE, John was born in 1918 at his parent's Elbow, Saskatchewan farm where he lived until the age of four. When his father died at 24, John moved with his mother to Durham, Ontario and joined his uncle Thomas WEIR's family.
Married to Sarah (Sadie) OLIVER in 1944, they lived on their Old Durham Road farm near Priceville to raise two children, John Oliver and Rosemary. In addition to farming, John worked at Hewgill's sawmill in Pricevilie and for both Farquhar and John MacKINNON over the years, and drove a high school bus route. Retirement took John and Sadie to their retirement home, "Cape Horn" on the outskirts of Markdale.
Always well-respected by his community, John was noted for his humility and kindness as he exemplified rural life, enjoying all that it offered. He was an enthusiastic member of Annesley United Church, the Markdale Curling Club and a ten-year volunteer at Rockwood Terrace. Predeceased by his wife, Sadie in March 1997, and his son, John Oliver in February 2007, John is survived by his daughter, Rosemary RITCHIE (Wayne PILKINGTON) of Vancouver and sisters-at-heart, Mary (Ken) HALL of Scarborough and Margaret (Robert) MONTGOMERY of St. Catharines.
Funeral service of remembrance and thanksgiving was held at Annesley United Church, Markdale, on July 13 with Rev. Don PLETSCH presiding. Music during the service consisted of the congregation singing the family favourite "O God of Bethel" and "Faith of Our Fathers". Also providing music were the Gospel Couriers and Ian LEITH playing his fiddle. Interment was at Evergreen Cemetery, South Line, Artemesia.

SHUTLER, Richard Jr. (December 8, 1921-June 28, 2007)
Professor Emeritus, Simon Fraser University
Died peacefully on the evening of June 28th in the arms of his wife Jamie at Saint Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, after having had a stroke the same morning. Richard is survived by his second wife Jamie EVRARD, his first wife Mary Elizabeth 'Betty' SHUTLER with whom he had three children, sons John Hall and Richard Burnett, granddaughter Tessa Marie HOPLIN (James,) and sister Muriel Ericson (Roger) and predeceased by his daughter Kathryn ALLICE. A happy man who deeply loved and was loved by his family and Friends, Richard had a generous, collegial temperament and wide ranging interests in the field of archaeology and way beyond. Having spent over fifty years in the field, Richard seems to have lived many lives. Born in 1921 in Longmont, Colorado, he attended Salinas Jr. College, then inspired by the exploits of the famous paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews in the Gobi desert he went on to get an Alberta and an M.A. in anthropology at U of California, Berkeley followed by a Ph.D. from U of Arizona in 1961. His education was interrupted by a stint in the Aleutian Islands as a diesel mechanic with the U.S. Army during the Second World War. Richard married Mary Elizabeth HALL in 1951 and soon after they went off to New Caledonia with E.W. Gifford, a legendary California archaeologist. Shortly after Richard became intensely interested in a pottery type that had begun to appear in some of the islands of the Pacific. This pottery, later dubbed 'Lapita', became perhaps the foremost tool that archeologists use in tracing man's early dispersal into the Pacific. Richard also did extensive archeological work in the American Great Basin, Hawaii, the Philippines where he married his second wife Jamie EVRARD, an artist whom he had met in Iowa in 1979, Vanuatu, the Gilbert Islands, Tubuai, Fefan Island, Truk, Fiji, China and most recently, Tonga. In 2005 the French Government feted Richard in Noumea, New Caledonia on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Lapita pottery on that island. Two books were produced in his honor and archaeologists came from around the world to give papers in celebration of Richard's long career in Pacific archaeology. Richard maintained an office at Simon Fraser University until he died. Richard had many interests outside of archeology and especially enjoyed travelling to Italy with Jamie, buying and restoring a villa there, and collecting fresh figs. Richard lovvd expeditions, anything yellow, the opera, the novels of Joseph Conrad and Somerset Maugham, mango pudding, the paintings of Camille Pissarro and Picasso's huge steel sculptures, secret pockets in travel clothing, the Oakland Raiders, Beethoven's symphonies, chocolate milk shakes, Tiger Woods, and his gigantic and devoted cat Boodles. A memorial service will be held at 4: 30 p.m. on Thursday, September 20th at Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia Gifts in Richard's memory gratefully received by the Healthy Heart Program at Vancouver General Hospital and University of British Columbia Hospital Foundation, 855 W. 12th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z 1M9.

HONE, McGregor
Husband, father, artist, teacher, activist, born February 7, 1920, died July 18, 2007. Mac lived his life with great passion, sharing it with Beth, his wife and collaborator, for over 62 years. While a private man, he made lasting Friendships easily. Known for his razor-sharp wit, and wide knowledge, he could be relied on to provide the right quote for every occasion. Mac earned his B.A. and certificate of education at the University of Saskatchewan in 1941. During the war, Mac welded Victory ships at North Vancouver Shipyards. He and Beth were married in Nanaimo in 1944. He first taught in Copper Mountain, British Columbia where Dave was born. In 1947, the family moved to Regina and Mac began his long teaching career at Central Collegiate. Shortly after, Jan was born. In the mid 1950s he attended Emma Lake work shops organized by his friend and teacher Ernie Lindner. In the late 1950s the family travelled to Europe, where Mac studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London. They spent the summers travelling across Europe in a Volkswagen van. In the 60's, Mac, Lloyd Blackman and Jack Williams started Regina's first fine arts high school program at Central Collegiate. Mac developed the visual arts program from which many successful artists graduated. His exciting classes drew students from across Regina, many of whom kept in touch over the years. For them Mac was a mentor, encouraging bot creativity and technique. Mac's involvement with the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation included negotiating many improvements in contracts for teachers and serving on the Executive. After his retirement in 1979 he was active in the Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan. Throughout his life, Mac painted, drew and made prints. He and Beth travelled extensively. His travels and his passion for history, literature, astronomy, entomology and philosophy inspired his work, which has been shown in numerous galleries, including the National Gallery of Canada, and is held in collections across the country. For 68 consecutive years, Mac produced a greeting card print, much anticipated by Friends, reflecting a moment of the past year. Mac's painting 'By the Radio' (1950) was the first work of art purchased by the Saskatchewan Arts Board for its permanent collection. In 1995 the Board gave him its Lifetime Award for Excellence in the Arts. A longtime Unitarian, for many years Mac illustrated and produced 'The Chalice' newsletter for the Regina Fellowship. Mac was predeceased by his daughter Jan in 2004. He will be greatly missed by Beth, his loving wife and best friend of 62 years, son Dave (Carol), son-in-law Jim HALL, grandchildren Brenna (Ryan) ACKERMAN and Will HALL, great-grand_sons Ethan and Avery McGregor ACKERMAN. The family thanks Doctor Doris Logan and staff of the Regina Qu'Appelle Palliative Care Program, especially the Home Health Aides whose care enabled Mac to remain at home until his death.

HALL, Levan " Van"
On Saturday August 11, 2007, Van died peacefully at Riverview Health Centre (Winnipeg, Manitoba) at the age of 68. He is greatly missed by his wife Susan; daughter Kaley; son Simon; daughter-in-law Sandra and granddaughter Abby; brother Ron; sister Lyndy and brother-in-law Bob. Also missing Van are his three nephews; Jim, wife Brenda and sons Tyler and Devon; Bob, wife Judy and daughter Lyndy; Rick and his partner Diane, as well as other loving family and a warm circle of very dear and very devoted Friends. Van was predeceased by his father Lloyd and his mother Helen. Van was born and grew up in Toronto. He entered the Chartered Accountancy program after high school, completing it over five, travel-filled years in various locales. He worked initially in the private sector before moving to Saint_John's, Newfoundland to teach at Memorial University. It was there where Simon and Kaley were born. Van and Susan then joined Canadian University Services Organization and moved to Tanzania where Van worked as controller of the National Development Corporation and helped implement the country's first professional accountancy program that he himself had designed. During this time Van and Susan made many lifelong Friends. Upon returning to Canada in 1975 Van and Susan moved to Winnipeg. Van joined the government (CEDF) as Treasurer and Assistant General Manager. Van then entered public practice in 1978, where he was to work until his semi-retirement in 2004. In 2003 he was elected Fellow of the Manitoba Chartered Accountant Institute for outstanding service to the profession and the community. It was a great joy to Van that, over the years, his daughter Kaley worked alongside him in the office and that, more recently, he was able to pass his business on to his son Simon. During his public practice career, Van worked very closely with numerous Aboriginal communities and organizations, providing financial services and training to students. He also continued to teach through the New Careers Program and the Faculty of Continuing Education at the University of Manitoba. Van also undertook development work in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. He served on the boards of both public institutions (Manitoba Lotteries Commission and Flyer Industries) and of various not-for-profit organizations (North-South Institute, Assiniboine Credit Union, Oxfam and Klinic Community Health Centre) and was volunteer auditor of many others. Through these activities, Van made many more enduring Friendships. Van's contributions and accomplishments were recognized by the Province of Manitoba. Shortly before his death, Van learned that he had been awarded the Order of the Buffalo Hunt, one of the highest honours the Province can bestow on individuals who demonstrate outstanding skills in the areas of leadership, service and community commitment. Van consciously chose to work with the less advantaged and put public service above private gain. He was a man of principle with great integrity. He was an avid sports fan, coach, and physical and electronic participant. He also read extensively and had a great, if sometimes corny, sense of humour. ('Hiya handsome. Get the joke?') He had a great laugh which was with him to the end. He loved people and people loved him. Van felt he had lived life to the full and he had. Nonetheless, his passing is a source of great sorrow to family and Friends. The family wish to thank very much the health care providers who participated in Van's care, at St. Boniface General Hospital, at CancerCare Manitoba, at Community Therapy Services, in the Palliative Home Care Program and on the Palliative Care Unit at Riverview Health Centre, as well as his family doctor and long term physiotherapist. Their capable and compassionate care is greatly appreciated. A memorial gathering will be held in the Crystal Ballroom at the Fort Garry Hotel on Sunday 26 August, at 6.30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Spirit of Giving Fund at the Southeast Resource Development Council, 360 Broadway Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 0T6. Cropo Funeral Chapel (204) 586-8044.

HALL, Oswald, PhD, LLD, F.R.S.C. (18 January 1908-31 August Born in Lily Plains, northern rural Saskatchewan, and one of nine children, Oswald came to be one of the early members of the sociological profession in Canada. He studied at Queens, McGill and Chicago, and taught at Brown and McGill where he served 16 years, many as chairman. Following a visiting professorship at Tulane University he joined the faculty at the University of Toronto in 1956. His primary practical research interests centred on the sociology of work and the professions, especially medicine, focusing on doctors, chiropractors and paramedical specialties. His career found him moving between the worlds of academe and government policy, and he served on both the Royal Commission on Health Services and the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism. After retiring from the University of Toronto, he held sessional appointments with the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, Trent University and Memorial University.
He enjoyed a rich and rewarding career of teaching and research in the early years of what was then an exciting and new area of academic endeavour. His colleagues and students throughout Canada honoured him with a series of published papers. His contribution to the development of sociology and Canada were also recognized through the awarding of an honorary doctorate by the University of Carleton, and membership in the Royal Society of Canada.
Predeceased by his wife Florence HALL (née TANNER.) He is survived by his sister Kathleen HAMILTON, his son Frank, daughter Mona (BROWNE,) granddaughter Christina HALL, and many nephews and nieces and their children. His intellect, presence and humour are now gone, and it has created a void.

HARIT, Shirley (December 3, 1932-September 12, 2007)
Peacefully, in her sleep, in the palliative ward in Nanaimo General Hospital, Shirley passed away. Born and raised in Montreal, Shirley spent her most memorable moments competing on the tennis courts. She was a Quebec champion for many years and was ranked as high as #2 in Canada. She married Val in 1954, also a top tennis player. She was also a champion bowler and an avid bridge player. She spent many memorable evenings at the Mount Royal Tennis Club in Montreal dining on the outside verandah. Her laughter could be heard all the way to court 6. Her longtime companion, Jean Bastien (2003) was a big part of her life in her later years. She will always be in our hearts. Shirley moved to Nanaimo, British Columbia in 2003 to be with her daughter Debbie and grandchildren Candice (15) and Richie (14) HALL. She loved Nanaimo, her nice condo, the beautiful surroundings and her little dog Susie. Shirley also leaves behind sister Joy (Montreal), sister-in-law Vera (Montreal), and daughter Diane (West Virginia). She will be sadly missed by all of us. We will take care of little Susie for you, Granny, and we love. Please do not send flowers.
