He was first North American reporter to go behind the Bamboo Curtain
Dispatched to China in the 1950s, he covered the Orient and the Middle East for two decades with Associated Press, writes Sandra MARTIN. He ended his career at The Globe and Mail
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
A triple hitter as a reporter, editor and photographer, David LANCASHIRE was the Zelig of foreign correspondents. Wherever trouble brewed, he was there reporting back by telephone, telegraph or whatever other communications tool he could commandeer, in prose that was succinct, accurate and sparkling with precise and evocative detail.
The first North American correspondent to report from mainland China in the 1950s, he covered the Orient and the Middle East for Associated Press for two decades.
"David had a certain almost insouciance, which gave his personality the racy, devil-may-care air of a young boulevardier. At its best, his writing could be spectacular with the ability to take the reader along with him on a specific assignment," said Clark DAVEY, a former managing editor of The Globe and Mail.
"One of his many endearing qualities was his modesty," said Marcus Eliason, an Associated Press assistant international editor, "so it took a long time to know that he had scored a huge coup by getting a visa to go into Red China in the 1950s and produced a series of stories that was the first look into this closed society."
The two men worked together in Israel in the small Associated Press bureau in Tel Aviv from 1972 to 1976. "What I saw in him was a wonderful reporter, a man of enormous curiosity, a guy who always found something good to say about whatever culture he was covering," Mr. Eliason said. "He would go to the most exotic, strange and even dangerous places, but he always came back with a little story that brought the people and their lives alive to you." Speaking of Mr. Lancaster as an editor, he said: "In his quiet and unimposing way, he made you feel how a story should work, how to get it right, how to be fair, all the things that we desperately need [to know.]"
David Miles LANCASHIRE was born the year after the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the middle of three sons of Robert Harold LANCASHIRE and his wife Victoria (CAMPBELL.) His father held an eclectic series of jobs from musician to house detective at the Royal York Hotel and his mother was the daughter of Colin CAMPBELL, the city editor of the Toronto Star. By his late teens, he was bored with school and in love with playing the trombone. There's a story he liked to tell about spending the afternoon at what was probably the Victory Burlesque on Spadina Avenue. At the show's end, the lights came on, Mr. LANCASHIRE got up from his seat to leave and spotted his father, also playing hooky, sitting in the seat behind him. Neither one of them ever told Mrs. LANCASHIRE about their clandestine encounter.
Jazz brought him together with artist and musician Michael SNOW on a snowy night in 1948, when Mr. Lancaster paid 75 cents to hear three bands, including Ken Dean's Hot Seven, play at Lansdowne Hall in Toronto's West End. The two men began playing together as part of a group - Mr. Snow on the piano and Mr. LANCASHIRE on the trombone - at venues such as Balmy Beach, fraternity houses and the Snow family living room. In 1953, they went separately to Europe, but kept meeting by chance at clubs in Italy, France and Belgium. Mr. SNOW dropped into a club called La Rose Noire in Brussels and there was Mr. LANCASHIRE, the only Canadian in a Belgian combo. Soon, Mr. SNOW was playing there too. One night, Quincy Jones, Clifford Brown and a few other players from the touring Lionel Hampton Orchestra wandered in and jammed with them. A few days later, in Paris, Mr. Jones wrote and recorded a song he called La Rose Noire. And so it went for a couple of carefree years. "There was something very special about him," Mr. Snow said. "He was one of my very best Friends."
Wandering around Europe convinced Mr. LANCASHIRE, a high-school drop out, that he wanted to become a foreign correspondent, although he lacked any training - including the ability to type. He came back to Canada and talked his way into a job on the Quebec Chronicle Telegraph in 1954. After four months, he transferred to The Montreal Herald, where he worked as a crime reporter for a year. In 1955, he returned to Toronto and landed a job as a general reporter at The Globe and Mail. The late Richard (Dic) DOYLE remembers him in his book Hurly Burly as "a quiet gangling fellow" who was "a jazz nut." He once came across a sale of military drums in a loft on Yonge Street, and persuaded several of his senior editors to fit themselves out with drum kits. Mr. Davey still uses the regimental bass drum he acquired as a coffee table.
Restless from chasing fires and covering press conferences, Mr. LANCASHIRE longed to go to China, which had been largely out of bounds to foreign journalists since the Communist Revolution of 1949 had brought Mao Zedong to power. In September, 1956, Mr. LANCASHIRE wrote a letter to Premier Zhou Enlai asking for a visa. Some time later, he cornered managing editor Tommy MUNNS and offered himself as The Globe's first China correspondent. Mr. MUNNS declined.
Coincidentally, China announced that it would make visas available to American correspondents, an overture that triggered an embargo from the U.S. State Department, denying U.S. citizens the right to apply for a visa. The next day, Mr. LANCASHIRE received a wire from Mr. Zhou saying his application had been accepted. He quit The Globe, shopped his services to news agencies and was quickly hired on a freelance contract by the Associated Press in New York. Mr. LANCASHIRE flew to Hong Kong and walked across the bridge into China, the first reporter for any U.S. news organization on the Chinese mainland since 1949.
Before his two-month visa expired, he travelled more than 8,000 kilometres and produced a lengthy series of stories on life behind what was called the Bamboo Curtain. "Red China today is an immense machine with 600 million moving parts, running at top speed," Mr. LANCASHIRE wrote in an eerily prescient Associated Press story from Hong Kong on December 15, 1956. "Its 600 million individuals are sacrificing individually at Communist behest in an all-consuming drive to change a backward, poverty ridden nation into a modern state.
"China has the largest labour force in the world. And with the straining sinews of the 600 millions, she is struggling to reach a fantastic goal - to leave the middle ages behind and equal the United States in industrial power by the year 2000."
Based on his reportage, he was hired as an Associated Press staff foreign correspondent, a job he kept for the next two decades, filing many wire-service stories that ended up in the columns of his old newspaper. He spent three years in East Asia, reporting from Japan, Jakarta, Singapore, Bangkok and Saigon and almost every other country in the region. In 1960, he moved to Beirut and a new assignment as a roving Middle East correspondent. It was in Beirut that he met Adrienne (Dédée) TELDERS, a young woman from The Hague, Netherlands, who was working as a secretary at the Dutch embassy. They married in July, 1961. Their son Michael was born in 1963, followed by Adriaan in 1964.
"Writing for Associated Press meant covering everything from economics in Tokyo to opium dens in Laos, rigged elections in Tehran and Investiture of Prince Charles in Wales," Mr. LANCASHIRE wrote later. He covered nine wars, including the 1958 civil strife in Indonesia, the Sino-Indian war of 1962, ongoing Mideast conflict, the Turkish assault on Cyprus in 1974 and the overthrow of the Imam of Yemen in 1962. He also reported on Pope Paul VI's visit to Jerusalem in 1964, and Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in Iran.
In 1968, he transferred to London, but he and his wife missed the tumult of the of Middle East and he snapped up an opportunity to move to Israel as news editor for Associated Press in Tel Aviv in 1972, where he covered the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Selling their London house before heading back to the Middle East was his only regret, he explained earlier this year in a conversation about escalating British house prices.
In the mid-1970s, the LANCASHIREs decided it was time to "Canadianize" their teenaged sons. At about the same time, Mrs. LANCASHIRE was diagnosed with the early stages of multiple sclerosis, a chronic, inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. He quit Associated Press in 1976 and returned to Canada and The Globe, where he worked as chief feature writer.
"I loved the man," Ed O'DACRE, the paper's former features editor, said yesterday. "He could do whatever you asked him to do. Clarity was his forte. His style was simple, perfect, clear English." His writing was not hit-of-the-week stuff that called attention to itself, said Mr. O'DACRE, but it lasted. "That was his virtuosity - you didn't notice his skill."
After suffering a heart attack in the newsroom in 1981, Mr. LANCASHIRE took time off to recuperate and returned to the newspaper as an editor. He was 63 when he retired in June, 1994, after The Globe announced an editorial buyout package. He devoted himself to caring for his wife and kept up a lively correspondence in The Globe's letters page, pointing out slips and inconsistencies in polite but pithy notes. He also reviewed jazz books and wrote travel articles that were rich in anecdotes and experience.
After the first Persian Gulf war, he wrote a piece about Jordan reopening its deserts to tourism with a reprise of the lead he had written 25 years earlier when the country, having lost most of its tourist attractions during the Six-Day War in 1967, launched a camel safari as a lure for foreign visitors.
"The tents are folded and the caravan winds into the desert. The sun pours down like molten brass on a line of lurching camels and hooded riders. Rifles glint from the saddles."
While much was the same, much had changed between his two trips. "On our final night in the desert, we had a fireside feast of mutton and rice eaten with bare hands. Sitting across from the fire, a gnarled old Bedouin suddenly interrupted the conversation. One of the Palestinian policemen translated: 'He says, praise God that tomorrow the rain will fall from the skies again.' "
A wise nomad in tune with the elements, Mr. LANCASHIRE thought to himself. Reverting to journalist mode, he asked the Bedouin how he knew rain was coming. The old man reached into his robe, pulled something out and silently handed it to Mr. LANCASHIRE. "It was a gorgeous little radio - olive-green colour, shaped like an avocado, and into its side was set a little silver plaque that read, Pierre Cardin, Paris."
This past summer, he began cleaning out his files and uncovered a pile of negatives covering his Middle East years. He had the best of them printed, framed them himself, and had a one man photography show in Kilgour's, a pub in Toronto's Annex neighbourhood. He also found the letter that jogged his memory about his 1962 trip to Yemen. It formed the basis for his final Globe article, about a time there when "there were no hotels, no tourists, not even a road to the capital, only a rocky track for trucks and camels."
At the time, Mr. LANCASHIRE was based in Aden, sharing a room in the Rock Hotel with the correspondent for The Observer, a man named Kim Philby - the very same Soviet spy who disappeared from the Mideast four months later and was uncovered as Britain's infamous "Third Manitoba" Ever the professional, Mr. LANCASHIRE captured the traitor's image on film.
David Miles LANCASHIRE was born in Toronto on December 30, 1930. He died of a heart attack at his home on September 10, 2007. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Dédée, his sons Michael and Adriaan, his daughter-in-law Mayte, two grandchildren and extended family.

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.

Canada's first environment minister had orders to clean up Ontario
Appointed in 1969 by premier John Robarts, he was described by a Toronto Telegram reporter as being like 'a sheriff from out of the Old West.' He also twice served as solicitor-general, resigning each time after separate scandals, writes Sandra MARTIN. He survived handily
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
A natural politician who loved the meet-and-greet of politics, George KERR was a cabinet minister in the Ontario governments of John Robarts and William Davis. The first politician to hold the environment portfolio in any jurisdiction in Canada, he was as far-sighted in his struggles to combat pollution as he was controversial in his attempts to ban phosphates and reduce automobile emissions.
The only son and elder child of lumber trader George and Florence (HINTON) KERR, he was born in Montreal but grew up in Esquiminac on Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula. As a child, he and his younger sister Patricia (Patsy) went to the village school in a cart pulled by their pony Julie. He was apparently heartbroken when his parents decided to send him at the age of 9 to Rothesay Collegiate, a boarding school located near Saint John. The school yearbook, The Blue and White, calls him Buzz and says he came to the school as a "wee mite" who "from the hour of his arrival" was into everything "official and not quite so official." He was very athletic, playing on all of the school teams, winning a middleweight boxing championship and serving as captain of the football and hockey teams in his senior year.
He graduated in 1942 and entered the undergraduate program at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton that fall. Barely a year later, he tried to enlist in the armed forces, but was diagnosed with tuberculosis when he underwent his mandatory medical. Instead of serving overseas, he was sent to a sanatorium where he was subjected to the clean-air cure that was standard treatment in those days. After recovering, he worked for some time in the lumber trade with his father before returning to university in 1949, managing to complete his degree in a year by attending summer school. During this second stretch at University of New Brunswick, he met a student from Spencer Island, Nova Scotia, named Joan Merrydith (Mim) SPICER. They both enrolled in the law school at Dalhousie University in Halifax in September, 1950. Afterward, he liked to claim that he got through because she tutored him. They were married September 1, 1951, and eventually had three children, Larry, Margot and James.
After earning their law degrees from Dalhousie in 1953, the KERRs moved to Ontario, settling in Burlington in 1954, where they both worked in the law firm Kerr and Hawken. As he had done at boarding school two decades earlier, Mr. KERR got into everything "official and not quite so official" from the hour of his arrival in Burlington, from the town council to the chamber of commerce to the Halton County Progressive Conservative Association. He was first elected to the Ontario Legislature in 1963 for Halton and held his seat (which was renamed Halton West and then Burlington South) for more than two decades, finally retiring before the 1985 election.
As a backbencher in premier John Robarts's government, he served on a number of standing committees, including municipal affairs and education, health and welfare, and won his riding in the 1967 provincial election with a plurality of nearly 6,000 votes. Two years later, in June of 1969, Mr. Robarts appointed him to cabinet in the new portfolio of energy and resources management, with the express mandate of cleaning up Ontario's soil, air and water. He was 45.
A reporter from the now defunct Toronto Telegram interviewed the newly minted minister in his Queen's Park office in January of 1970, describing him as tall, with a strong, firm jaw and looking variously like "a sheriff from out of the Old West" and "a trifle stiff and stern in the manner of a not-so-bad high-school principal." Sitting behind a huge desk and smoking his ever-present pipe, Mr. KERR said: "Pollution is the thing everybody seems to be concerned about right now. It's just amazing how the interest in it has boomed in the past 12 months."
He lived beside Hamilton Harbour, infamous for the belching smoke from the Stelco and Dofasco steel smelters on its shores, and admitted that it was "not the most beautiful body of water in the world." He made a promise to change all that, vowing that the bay would be clean enough to swim in within five years.
Five years later, he climbed into an old-fashioned horizontal-striped bathing suit adorned with shoulder straps and plunged into the water for a short but bracing swim, and emerged without any seeming ill effects.
When William Davis succeeded Mr. Robarts as leader of the party and as premier in 1971, he appointed Mr. KERR as environment minister. "He was a very able minister," Mr. Davis said yesterday, suggesting that heading up the first environment ministry in Canada was his major political legacy because "it was a major departure in terms of government responsibility and George did it and did it well." A year later, Mr. Davis shifted him to the ministry of colleges and universities, with postsecondary schools expanding rapidly as the baby boom shouldered its swaggering way into secondary education.
A strong supporter of his own community, Mr. KERR "strenuously and successfully" resisted the inclusion of Burlington in the formation of the Hamilton-Wentworth regional government in the early 1970s, according to Mr. Davis. "He was very persuasive in that regard," said Mr. Davis, who can still remember the arguments around the cabinet table before the legislation was passed in June of 1973. "Most people in Burlington would say that his success in keeping Burlington as a separate community was his main accomplishment."
Mr. KERR's political life was not without controversy. He was solicitor-general twice, resigning each time after a public clamour, although his exile to the wilderness of the back benches was short lived because he had never done anything illegal.
The first occasion, in July, 1975, involved the mention of his name in the trial of former Hamilton Harbour commissioner Kenneth ELLIOT/ELLIOTT in connection with dredging contracts. Mr. Davis reappointed Mr. KERR to cabinet three months later for his second stint as environment minister, where he remained until January, 1978, when the premier shifted him back again to solicitor-general.
The second stumble was more serious. On August 14, 1978, while Mr. KERR was solicitor-general and provincial secretary for justice, he made a telephone call to an assistant crown attorney on behalf of Francis HARRISON, a constituent who was facing trial for driving while his licence was suspended. According to Mr. KERR's explanation, he made the call not to attempt to influence the outcome of the pending trial but to learn whether Mr. HARRISON, a pipe fitter (who had telephoned the minister at home after looking up his number in the telephone book), would face a mandatory jail term if convicted. The intervention quickly became public and Mr. KERR resigned from cabinet on September 9, 1978, in an atmosphere that was already contaminated by John MUNRO, another Hamilton-area politician, who had been forced to step down the day before as the federal labour minister after calling a judge to offer a character reference for an accused constituent.
"I think it was something he felt personally he should do," Mr. Davis said. "George was one of those individuals who was very anxious to do what he felt was appropriate and that is why he resigned. He was not pushed."
Mr. HARRISON was acquitted at a trial that November. A subsequent report of a government inquiry into the matter questioned Mr. KERR's wisdom but stated that: "It does not seem that Mr. KERR's telephone call constituted an attempt to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice within the meaning of Section 127 of the Criminal Code."
Although he never returned to the cabinet table, Mr. KERR served on a number of standing committees and was asked by Mr. Davis to become speaker of the house in 1981, an invitation he declined. "I think he was tired of refereeing," the former premier said.
Four years later, Mr. KERR resigned his seat and returned to practising law with his wife. "He was very dedicated to his family and of course he was supported by Mim," Mr. Davis said. "I would argue that she may have gotten more votes for him than he got for himself. They were a great pair."
About five years ago, Mr. KERR was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Although frail, he enjoyed what his daughter Margot called "his last hurrah" in February when he made an appearance at a fundraiser for Joyce Savoline, the successful Progressive Conservative candidate in a provincial by-election in Burlington.
Although Mr. KERR wasn't on the list of speakers, he responded to the call when he was asked to say a few words, said party chief John Tory, who was there to "motivate the troops" for the upcoming vote.
"He was absolutely magnificent," Mr. Tory said of Mr. KERR's 10-minute speech on how much he enjoyed his early days in politics. "I think it was a very moving experience for most of the people there, probably two-thirds of whom were far too young to have known him as an active politician. He summoned up everything he had."
In the middle of April, Mr. KERR suffered a fall and had to go into hospital.
George Albert KERR was born in Montreal on January 27, 1924. He died of pneumonia in a Burlington hospital on May 21, 2007. He was 83. He is survived by his wife Mim, three children, four grandchildren, his younger sister Patricia Lawson and his extended family.

After a courageous 21 months, Strachan lost his battle against Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma July 5th, 2007 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal.

Sharing their daughter's loss are parents-in-law Pierre YVES and Françoise ROUMAIN of Haiti and sister Stephanie READ and family in Miami. While his Uncle Peter HARTLEY, Aunt Catherine LOUVET and cousins Camille and Lauren feel a particularly strong loss as they acted as his surrogate family during his 7.5 years in Montreal, their grief is shared equally with his Uncles and Aunts Ian and Mary-Louise and Susan HARTLEY, Glenn and Margaret MUNRO, Jim MUNRO and Margaret DRAGU and cousins Megan, Brian, Scott, Kim, Josh and Aretha. He was predeceased by his grandparents Herb and Simone HARTLEY and Ralph and Isabelle MUNRO of Toronto. During his 30 years, Strachan left a powerful legacy of Friendship, sport and scholarship in Edmonton, Vancouver and Montreal. His captaincy of the 1997 Vanier Cup Champion University of British Columbia Thunderbirds football team and subsequently of the McGill Redmen football team are testament to his leadership and commitment to others. Earning All-Star status in both leagues, 5-time Academic All-Canadian Honours, the Russ Jackson Award as the top community, academic and athletic achiever in the Province of Quebec and twice bestowed with the prestigious Canadian Interuniversity Sports Award as one of the Top 8 most outstanding academic, leadership and athletic performers in Canadian sports are tributes of his tremendous work ethic and strength of character. His successful completion of medical school while battling cancer speaks to the bravery and determination of this truly remarkable man who wanted to make a difference in this world. But most of all, Strachan will be remembered for his warm sense of humor, compassion and integrity. All who knew him cannot wonder what might have been. Why, when he had so much to give, was he taken from us? Sleep in peace wonderful Prince. We will carry you always in our hearts. The family wishes to acknowledge all the amazing Friends and community members who supported Strachan during his life and illness. Your overwhelming caring and compassion touched him and the family deeply and helped soothe his burden.
