He was a teacher at various high schools in Toronto, co-founder with Joan of the Osteoporosis Society of Peterborough, an avid builder and problem solver, and he pursued a long-time passion for the environment, solar power and global awareness.

Doctor won Military Cross for bravery in a raging tank battle in North Africa
Trained in Toronto, he was seconded to the British Army to become a battalion medical officer at Tobruk, writes Sandra MARTIN. He was captured and spent the rest of the war treating PoWs
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S12
Shy, smart and athletic, Allen GRAHAM graduated from medical school a few months before Canada entered the Second World War. Less than two years later he had exchanged his intern's whites for a khaki uniform. As a member of the medical corps, Lieutenant GRAHAM was not supposed to be directly involved in fighting the enemy. Instead, he was expected to provide medical services when soldiers fell ill, and to care for the wounded. Instead, he was decorated for bravery in North Africa, captured by the Germans and spent most of the war behind enemy lines treating the sick and dying in prisoner of war Camps.
Allen Frederic GRAHAM was born in the middle of the First World War, the third of four children of Doctor Joseph and Eleanor (née BOYD) GRAHAM. On his mother's side he was the grand_son of Sir John Alexander BOYD, a very prominent lawyer and judge in the late 19th century. After Allen's father died when he was 11, the bereaved boy's godfather, J.P. BICKELL, the millionaire mining executive and part-owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs, provided the funds to send him to St. Andrew's College in 1927.
Boxing Champion
In his six years at the boarding school for boys located in Aurora, Ontario, Allen excelled both academically and athletically. He played cricket and was on both the first rugby and hockey teams and was the boxing champion in June, 1932, according to the school's records. He was also a prefect and won the Old Boy's Medal in math when he graduated in 1933.
After St. Andrew's, he went to the University of Toronto, graduating in medicine in 1939. He had served in the General Reserve of Officers Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps (R.F.) while he was at university, and was an intern at the Toronto General Hospital when the Second World War broke out. On July 1, 1941, he enlisted as a lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. He was quickly seconded to the Royal Army Medical Corps and shipped to England for training and then to Cairo. The British got a bonus in Lt. GRAHAM, according to his family, because he introduced his cricket-playing colleagues to the North American game of baseball.
He probably first saw action with British Forces at Tobruk, the heavily fortified and strategically located fortress in Libya that was hotly contested by Axis and Allied powers. But it was his courageous actions at the Gulf of Sidra, a body of water on the northern coast of Libya, that earned him promotion to the rank of captain and the Military Cross "in recognition of gallant and distinguished service in the Middle East."
The citation, which was published in the Canada Gazette on November 5, 1942, stated: "During the attack on El Sidra on 5 June 1942, this officer [Capt. Allen Frederic GRAHAM] was the battalion medical officer. He followed closely behind the attacking tanks, but realizing that a smokescreen put down by the enemy obscured his view, he brought his un-armoured vehicle to the forefront of the tank battle. There, in his truck or on foot, despite the battle raging around him, and the intense artillery and machine-gun fire of the enemy, he calmly proceeded from one damaged tank to another, evacuating the casualties and rendering first aid. He showed complete disregard for his own personal safety in the execution of his duty and his bravery was responsible for saving many lives."
Capt. GRAHAM was captured during the offensive led by The Desert Fox, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, and his Afrika Korps Panzer tanks on Tobruk in May and June of 1942. (Tobruk remained under Axis control until the Allies re-took it after the Second Battle of El Alamein in November, 1942). After his capture, he continued working as a doctor, but tended to Allied prisoners of war from all over the world.
He was sent first to Italy "in such a dilapidated aircraft that he doubted they would reach their destination," according to an account written by W.G. Cosbie in his book, The Toronto General Hospital 1819-1965: A Chronicle, and then to Lamsdorf in Poland, the notorious Stalag VIII-B (later renumbered Stalag-344) that had been the site of PoW camps since the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. It was there that the Germans had incarcerated Polish PoWs after invading Poland in 1939. Approximately 100,000 Allied PoWs eventually spent time in this over-crowded camp.
After having been incarcerated in Lamsdorf for nine months, Captain GRAHAM was moved to Stalag Luft III, a primary PoW camp for Allied officers in Sagan, about 170 kilometres southeast of Berlin. This camp was famous for the number of times PoWs attempted to flee their captors, including the major break from the British compound on March 24, 1944 that was the basis for the book and the movie entitled The Great Escape. Of the almost 80 prisoners who crawled out of camp through a tunnel 102 metres feet in length, dug nine metres below ground level, only three made it to neutral territory. The rest were recaptured, and 50 of them were executed.
Death March
Capt. GRAHAM's main job, according to an interview that he gave to The Globe and Mail on his return to Canada in June, 1945, was taking care of prisoners "who were unable to march." As the balance of power shifted after the D-Day invasion of Normandy in June, 1944, and Allied forces moved eastward through France and westward from Russia hoping to join up west of Berlin, the Germans began evacuating some of their PoW camps by forcing their prisoners on "death marches," or by cramming them into box cars on railway lines. Capt. GRAHAM's patients were the PoWs who were too weak or sickly to be transported.
Like many veterans, Capt. GRAHAM didn't like to discuss the horrors he had seen and experienced, but he did tell his daughters how frustrating it had been to try to treat PoWs when he had virtually no medical supplies. He was always performing triage and making horrific decisions about who was likely to die and who might survive with a dose of his paltry drugs. When the first Red Cross parcels, containing the miracle drug penicillin, arrived late in the war, he was jubilant.
The Russians liberated Capt. GRAHAM's camp in March, 1945, and he finally began his long trek home. He told his family later that the Russians separated the officers from the enlisted ranks and fed them a meal of pigs' feet slathered with sour cream, washed down with vodka. It was far too rich for men accustomed to nothing more nutritious than black bread and water. Capt. GRAHAM was so nauseated that he went outside to be sick and fell head first into an open grave.
Many of the troops and the other PoWs began looting German houses, but all that Capt. GRAHAM wanted was a knife and a fork and a napkin ring - symbols of the civilized life he had left behind three years earlier. The GRAHAMs still have that "liberated" napkin ring, dated 1576.
Along with other Canadian PoWs, representing 48 different ranks, he travelled with Russian troops by box car, bicycle and on foot through war-devastated Poland and Ukraine. The Canadian PoWs embarked by ship from Odessa on the Black Sea. Capt. GRAHAM arrived at Union Station in Toronto on June 12, 1945, where he was greeted by his widowed mother and by a reporter and a photographer from The Globe and Mail.
Two months later, on Victory over Japan day in mid-August, 1945, he met Helen HAWKER at a celebratory party at his mother's big house on St. Clair Avenue in Toronto. Ms. HAWKER, who had arrived with another man, noticed tall, skinny Capt. GRAHAM sitting alone on a sofa under the stairs. Wondering who he was, she asked her friend, James GRAHAM, the veteran's name. "Oh, that's my brother, Allen," he replied, according to a well-told family story. "He's just back from the war. Don't pay any attention to him. He's boring." Ignoring this caution, Ms. HAWKER introduced herself and spent the rest of the evening by Capt. GRAHAM's side - while her date finally went home alone.
Elopement
Five months later, they eloped to New York, where they were married on January 28, 1946. This past January they celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary. Together, they raised two daughters, Shari Graham FELL and Annabel GRAHAM.
After Capt. GRAHAM was demobilized, he returned to his medical studies, qualified as a specialist in internal medicine and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (Canada) in the late 1940s. Doctor GRAHAM had privileges at Toronto General Hospital for many years, and saw patients at his offices in the Medical Arts Building at St. George and Bloor Streets in midtown Toronto for more than 50 years.
The GRAHAMs summered at Goodcheer Island in Georgian Bay and spent winters and weekends at "Hawksprings," their home in the Hockley Valley. Doctor GRAHAM finally retired when he was 80. After a long, healthy life, he fell ill last month with interstitial pneumonitis, a disease that is not usually responsive to antibiotics and causes a progressive shortness of breath.
Allen Frederic GRAHAM, M. C, was born in Toronto on October 2, 1915. He died in Toronto General Hospital on Wed., October 24, 2007. He was 92. Predeceased by his three siblings, he is survived by his wife Helen, his daughters Shari and Annabel, four grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and his extended family.

She was the First Anglican woman elected a parish warden in Toronto
Raised in 11 foster homes, she became a teacher and counsellor who championed the rights of aboriginal people, immigrants, gays, the poor and the marginalized long before it was trendy
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- You'd think being shunted from one foster home to another would make a person hard. Helen GOUGH -- born illegitimate at a time when that was a stigma -- spent her childhood in no fewer than 11 foster homes, and emerged a gentle but tenacious advocate with an outsized social conscience that was fired by her mentor, Jesus. "Whatever I did, I did it as a Christian," she wrote in the preface to her unpublished memoirs. "I was a Jesus freak. I wanted to lead that kind of life."
In doing so, Ms. GOUGH "turned the Gospels upside down [by] turning those who were down, up," eulogized Rev. Sara BOYLES, priest at Ms. GOUGH's beloved Holy Trinity Church in downtown Toronto. "Helen turned the world upside down."
She did that, against all odds, by excelling in the so-called helping professions: Teaching, counselling and activism for aboriginal people, immigrants, gays, the poor and the marginalized. She stood up for their rights long before it was trendy, often forsaking her own fragile psyche.
Far from being a household name, except perhaps within the Anglican Church's more progressive elements in Toronto, Ms. GOUGH would not have minded being labelled ordinary, though she was far from it. "It's ordinary people, ordinary women, who have done much of what it took to make this nation what it is," she stated not long ago. "Ordinary people with extraordinary courage. Whatever else I am, I'm a Canadian. I'm a Canadian woman."
She was the first woman elected a parish warden in the Anglican Church of Canada's Toronto diocese, in 1971.
Her mother, also named Helen GOUGH, play a pivotal role in her fatherless and husbandless life. The elder Ms. GOUGH, who died in 1981, had been a Barnardo child, one of some 30,000 sick, destitute or orphaned British children shipped to the colonies as "seedling citizens of the British Empire" by English philanthropist Thomas Barnardo to work on farms or as domestics. (Between 600 and 1,000 children were sent to Canada from the late 1800s to 1915.)
Helen senior, with still-fresh memories of time spent in an actual English poorhouse, arrived in Southern Ontario in 1912 as a 10-year-old, together with her younger brother, Arthur. She toiled as a servant at seven different places until she turned 18, surviving on the cheapest foods and not once being allowed to use an indoor toilet.
On her own in Toronto, she found work as a clerk at the Hospital for Sick Children, and soon fell in with a crowd that included a handsome, suave clothing salesman from Stratford. When she became pregnant, he denied all knowledge of her, as advised by his uncle, a judge. It wasn't until the younger Ms. GOUGH was in her late 40s that she discovered her father's identity; he had become a fat drunk and died of a coronary when he was 60.
Too poor to raise her daughter, the elder Ms. GOUGH, by this time a live-in domestic, appealed to Catholic Children's Aid. (The child's father was Catholic.) But if the agency took the child in, she would be raised in an orphanage as a Roman Catholic. Her mother declined. "It must have taken tremendous courage for a woman to do that in 1930, and she was one of many who simply refused," her daughter later wrote.
Instead, her mother turned to the Children's Aid Society, which transferred the sickly baby to a woman whose sole task was to nurse sick infants back to health. Then came long years of foster care at nearly a dozen places, during which mother and daughter saw each other only intermittently. By the age of eight, young Helen had already attended Baptist, United and Roman Catholic churches, but made up her mind that the Anglicans were for her. She finally went to live with her mother when she was 15.
Ms. GOUGH's first taste of overt racism came while she worked as a teenaged waitress one summer at the Pearson Hotel on Centre Island. As she recalled, a short, self-important Englishman working in the kitchen informed a Chinese dishwasher: "I'm not taking any orders from a bloody Chink!" The Chinese man, a foot taller, brought the dish he was holding down on the man's skull. The plate shattered, and the blood coursed down the small man's head. Both were fired, and the incident stayed with her forever.
She was 19 when she befriended Gerry O'DONOGHUE of Toronto (later Gerry RANSOM,) whose family adopted Ms. GOUGH as one of their own, and whose daughter Beverley was Ms. GOUGH's goddaughter.
The same year, Ms. GOUGH graduated from Toronto Teachers' College and went to teach near Port Credit, Ontario That was followed by four years of teaching status Indians and Métis at an "Indian Day School" in Moose Lake, southeast of The Pas, Manitoba
Life was primitive and harsh, but for Ms. GOUGH, it was happily reminiscent of the Girl Guides camps she'd attended as a child. The three teachers took turns doing the three main chores: one week each on cooking, cleanup and "wood and water."
It was here that she became smitten with the shy aboriginal children, and impressed with their determination to learn English. (There is no mention in Ms. GOUGH's memoirs of church-run residential schools, where native children underwent horrific abuses that led to multimillion-dollar legal payouts decades later.) After teaching catechism and assisting with church services, she returned to Toronto to deepen her spirituality by studying at the Anglican Women's Training College. One summer, she took a job with the federal government's Indian Affairs department teaching at an Ojibwa-Cree settlement in Bearskin Lake, Ontario
In 1960, she began as an "Indian liaison worker" in the Toronto diocese, helping aboriginals access "white" social service agencies. It was half-time initially, "since no one really believed there were Indians in Toronto," she would recall. She was a pioneer of the first native centre in Toronto, and proudly outed a co-worker who had referred to Ms. GOUGH's client as "dirty and drunken&hellip you know, a typical Indian."
The man who had made the remark "was not happy about being exposed, but it was a great moment of insight for me," she remembered. "It's important to speak truth to power when we are in positions to do so. If we don't, who will?"
Around this time, Ms. GOUGH noticed that she was prone to periodic bouts of depression, preceded by highs that dropped to debilitating lows, and an inability to control either. The condition led her to years of psychotherapy and such treatments as psychodrama, bioenergetics and Arthur Janov's primal therapy, during which she began to face the pain of separation she'd experienced as a child.
She went into social service work for the diocese, mainly on housing conditions in Toronto, before returning to school at 35 to earn a B.A. at York University. She confessed that it was the worst experience of her adult life. With a D average, "I was so ashamed, I didn't go to my graduation or tell my mother about it until much later." Despite that, she returned to York a decade later to earn a master's degree in English, with honours, and an essay prize.
Meantime, there was a flurry of action in Toronto: In 1968, she was one of the original activists to develop Alexandra Park Co-op, today a 410-unit housing project in downtown Toronto (she worked alongside June Rowlands, who went on to become mayor of Toronto). She then worked for the Young Women's Christian Association, finding rooms for Caribbean domestics, before taking a job for 17 years with the Toronto Board of Education, working extensively with immigrant parents. Her involvement with the Riverdale Intergenerational Project brought seniors into schools as volunteers.
She embraced gay rights through what she called a particularly Anglican resolution: "All may, none must and some ought." Tall, gangly and sometimes physically awkward, she denied being a lesbian, "although I feel more comfortable with women than men. If you grow up in a series of homes, you don't learn to establish primary relationships. There were boys I really liked but I saw myself as plain. I was a wallflower at dances and very bookish. I made good secondary relationships, but primary ones [were] much more difficult."
In retirement, she seemed to accelerate, taking up travel, river rafting, voice lessons and photography. She produced pictures that testified to an almost child-like wonderment about the natural world.
She saw her mission through a simple lens: If she was going to do anything as a Christian, it was to respond to society's dispossessed. "I was not there to hold office," she reasoned, "but to meet people on the ground."
Helen Noreen Honora GOUGH was born in Toronto on November 21, 1930, and died there of cancer on June 1, 2007. She was 76. According to her wishes, only men washed her body prior to burial. She leaves her adoptive family, the Ransoms, and many Friends and admirers.

Chesley war veteran and voice for farmers dies
By Mary GOLEM, For the Post, Friday, October 26, 2007
A Second World War veteran, a defender of the family farm and strong advocate for Canadian farmers, a former vice-chairman of the National Farm Products Marketing Council, a Rotarian and a dedicated family man - Clarence James (Jim) BOYNTON of R.R.#3 Chesley - passed away at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre in Chesley on Thursday, October 18. He was 88 years of age.
A large crowd attended Mr. BOYNTON's funeral at Saint_John's United Church in Chesley on Monday, during which time Mr. BOYNTON was remembered for his dedication to agriculture, community and family his knowledge and opinions, often expressed in letters to the editor in area newspapers, along with his wit, charm and fun-loving nature.
In the mid-1970s, Mr. BOYNTON accepted an appointment as vice-chairman of the National Farm Products Marketing Council from then agriculture minister, the Hon. Eugene Whelan. In an e-mail read at Monday's service, Whelan paid tribute to Mr. BOYNTON and expressed his sympathy to his wife of over 60 years, Ina; their three children, Donna BOYNTON of New Brunswick, Bob and his wife Ellen of Ottawa and Patricia McCURDY and her husband Frank of Tara. He will be missed by his nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
A Second World War armoured corps veteran and active member of Branch #144 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Chesley, Mr. BOYNTON was a tank commander with the Fifth Armoured Regiment and was wounded twice, once in Italy at the Gothic Line and again in the late days of the war in 1945 in Holland.
He married his wife, Ina, just two months before he went overseas for military duty. Mr. BOYNTON carried with him a scrap of shrapnel in his head and wore hearing aids in both ears to help with difficulties brought on by damaging battle explosions.
He served his local Legion Branch in different executive positions, including president and padre.
He began to farm in the Chesley area when he returned from the war and soon became active in his local community and the larger farm community.
He was an organizer with the Federation of Agriculture and founder and later secretary/ manager of the Ontario Pork Producers Marketing Board. He was also a founding member of the Saugeen Community Credit Union, an active member of Saint_John's United Church in Chesley, and strong supporter of the local Chesley Hospital. Each year, Mr. BOYNTON was a participant in the hospital's fundraising walk, often being the oldest participant and often bringing in one of the highest pledge totals.
"We have lost a good friend and a great Canadian," Mr. Whelan said in the e-mail read at Monday's service.
