CASSEL, Pearl Georgina (née PAGE,) M.Ed.
on July 3rd, 2007, age 75, of heart failure after a long battle with illness. Teacher, traveler, guidance counselor, author, naturalist, public speaker, patron of our native artists, cruise ship lecturer, photographer, fisherwoman, mother and grandmother. Born in Bengeo, England, Pearl studied science at the Universities of London and Southampton after turning down a scholarship that would have required her to study education. After three years in research pharmacology, her thirst for travel and adventure took her to North America, where she hitch-hiked through 40 states before serendipitously landing a short term teaching position in Toronto. Ironically, the experience discovered a passion for pedagogy that began a 35 year career in which she taught all elementary and high school grades, earned a Masters of Education at the University of Toronto and a Parent Education Diploma, and became a founding director of the Alfred Adler Institute of Ontario. With Doctor Rudolph DREIKURS, a colleague of Adler, she co-authored Discipline without Tears, a teacher and parent guide to managing primary school pupils through understanding motivation, which became an international bestseller translated into several languages. Pearl went on to author Why Kids Jump Over The Moon (Winner of the Elmer Huff Award, Ontario School Counselors Association) and, with co-author Doctor Raymond CORSINI, The Challenge of Adolescence (Writers Award, Federation of Women Teachers' Associations of Ontario) and Coping with Teenagers in a Democracy. The success of her books and her love of helping others resulted in invitations to deliver over 1000 keynote speeches and workshops throughout North America, including most of Canada's major universities and many remote locations where she introduced Adlerian, democracy-based teaching approach to First Nations educators. Pearl developed a deep appreciation for native art and relationships with native artists, including the Hunts in British Columbia and Goyce Kakegamic, for whom she helped to arrange an airlift of his work when his studio was threatened by forest fire. Following her retirement from the public school system, Pearl alternated residences in Toronto, Florida, Victoria and Vancouver and reapplied her skills to guiding and educating adults on cruise ships. Greatly distressed when she became unable to continue cruise ship lecturing, she applied her characteristic determination to find other venues in which to contribute to the community: providing telephone support to the housebound through community care; organizing trips and events for her residence and local clubs; and, in her last year, returning to assist in a local elementary school, which she found as rewarding as any of the experiences in her rich life. Pearl is survived by son Paul and granddaughters Camille and Celeste in Toronto and niece Linda in England. A celebration of Pearl will take place in the banquet room at 1880 Valley Farm Rd., Pickering, where she lived, on Friday, July 20th from 3: 00 to 5:30 p.m. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Pickering Naturalists, Box 304, Pickering, Ontario.

Prince Edward Island plant pathologist led the world in potato research and breeding
Although unable to stomach spuds himself, he believed that with some laboratory tinkering the humble tuber could be the answer to beating famine in developing countries
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
As a boy, Orville PAGE had a bad experience with a potato. He either choked on one or had an allergic reaction. In any case, he never knowingly ate one again.
Yet he was to become one of the world's leading potato researchers and a strong believer in the introduction and expansion of potato production in developing countries as a means of alleviating hunger. The Ontario-born scientist worked in Peru from 1973 to 1985 as the first director of research and deputy director at the International Potato Center. The centre is a multinational institution devoted to reducing poverty through sustainable development of the potato, sweet potato and other root and tuber crops.
Dr. PAGE, known to Friends and co-workers as Ory, had earlier spent 12 years researching potatoes in Fredericton with Agriculture Canada and the University of New Brunswick. And he continued his potato work after his retirement through assignments with a number of development agencies.
As a young man, he was based in Prince Edward Island, Canada's potato capital, where he served as a pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. He went on to obtain a doctorate in plant pathology, to teach at the Ontario Agriculture College in Guelph and to spend a number of years researching banana diseases for the United Fruit Co. in both Honduras and the United States.
Colleagues at International Potato Center say Doctor PAGE set the centre's overall research policy while letting his staff get on with their individual projects without interference. They remember him as a charming but tough boss, and as a dedicated scientist with a commitment to feeding the world's burgeoning population and a reputation for looking immaculate -- even when inspecting agriculture projects in remote areas of the Third World. In his spare time, he had a passion for sailing and dabbled in studying sparrows, saying he was intrigued by the small birds' ability to adapt to local conditions anywhere in the world.
"Ory laid the groundwork for a highly recognized international potato research program," says Hubert Zandstra, a fellow Canadian who was International Potato Center's director general from 1991 to 2005. One of Doctor PAGE's major contributions, he says, was the development of sanitary measures that allow genetic material from potatoes to be exchanged among researchers around the world and to be made available for breeding in developing countries. Without those procedures, most countries would refuse entry to specimens taken from live potato plants.
Peter VanderZaag, a Canadian potato breeder, says Doctor PAGE's initial priority at the centre was to collect and classify wild and cultivated species of potato and study their properties. His team then had to find ways to transfer disease-resistant genes from plants that grow wild in the Andes to domesticated varieties, a complicated process because of the genetic makeup of potatoes.
Dr. PAGE also helped further the growing of potatoes from the plants' seeds, rather than from pieces of the tuber as had been the normal practice. This is important in Third World countries because it means all the tubers could be used for food, says Dr. VanderZaag, who was once Southeast Asian regional director with the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research, of which International Potato Center is a member.
Dr. PAGE had a special interest in late blight, the fungal disease that led to one million deaths during the great Irish famine in the mid-1800s, says George Tai, a retired New Brunswick potato researcher. Late blight continues to ravage crops today, and Dr. PAGE worked to find a way to prevent it by building up resistance. Under his guidance, researchers and breeders developed many new potato varieties and introduced them to suitable locations around the world. "To a large extent," says William George BARKER, a retired potato researcher and long-time friend, "the potato presence in the world is largely his doing."
In a 1994 paper published in the Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology, Dr. PAGE explained that potatoes yield more food energy per hectare than cereals and are especially valuable in developing countries that can grow more than one crop a year. The most critical problem in developing countries is the population explosion, he wrote. But potato production in the Third World is limited by the lack of disease and pest controls and the limited availability of chemical fertilizers.
Orville Thomas PAGE grew up in Burlington, Ontario, and learned carpentry skills from his father, English-born Thomas William PAGE, and used them later in life to design and finish a 12-metre wooden sailboat he called Caesar's Ghost. He passed his woodworking skills on to his son, William, a professional carver who lives in New Brunswick.
Orville's mother, Eunice Grace (née BUSCOMBE,) died when the boy was 3. He and a younger sister Grace (now BRIDLE) were raised by their father's second wife, Scottish-born Isobel REID.
The future scientist was not a stellar student at high school and was happy to sign up with the Royal Canadian Air Force when war broke out, says his daughter, Karen MARANTZ. He joined as a mechanic, but soon quit and re-enlisted to be trained as a pilot. He should have been turned down because he was colour-blind, she says. But he avoided detection by memorizing the correct responses to eye tests. Based at No. 1 General Reconnaissance School in Summerside, he flew low flights over coastal waters looking for enemy submarines. He was also the base's chief test pilot. Wartime flying in Prince Edward Island was so dangerous that 98 young airmen died there, mostly as the result of air crashes. While in the service he courted Norma Isobel ELLIS of Summerside and married her in 1944.
After the war he went to Guelph to earn a bachelor of science at the Ontario Agricultural College (then affiliated with the University of Toronto), followed by a masters and PhD from Iowa State College. From 1954 to 1957, he was an associate professor at Ontario Agricultural College. It was there he met Doctor BARKER, then a fellow member of the botany faculty. The pair went on to work together in both Honduras and Fredericton.
While in Guelph, Doctor BARKER, who had also served in the Canadian military, extolled the virtues of "army underwear" and convinced his friend to buy some with him at a surplus store. The pairs they purchased were too constrictive to wear, but became the basis of a long-running joke.
Once while Doctor PAGE was giving a scientific lecture in the United States, his friend dangled a set of army underwear from the balcony on a string. Doctor PAGE retaliated by having a pilot friend drop a package containing army underwear to Doctor BARKER using a parachute. The underwear passed back and forth on special occasions for half a century. At Doctor PAGE's 50th anniversary party, Doctor BARKER had a pair piped in on a silver tray.
From 1957 to 1959, Doctor PAGE worked in La Lima, Honduras, where he conducted research into banana diseases for the United Fruit Co. He brought along his wife and two young children. Mrs. MARANTZ says her parents flipped a coin to decide whether to go or not. At that time, United Fruit, which operated banana plantations, had near-total control of most Central American economies. He continued as a research officer with the United Fruit Co. in Norwood, Massachusetts., from 1959 until 1961.
The family then moved to Fredericton where Doctor PAGE was a research officer with Agriculture Canada's national potato program until 1964 and then a professor and associate dean of science at the University of New Brunswick until 1973. His work at the potato centre in Lima started as a one-year sabbatical from the university, but he ended up staying until his retirement in 1985. He hired staff and directed the work of some 50 PhD-level scientists and their research students. During his career he published 33 scientific papers and served as president of the Canadian Phytopathological Society.
On his retirement, he moved with his wife to a Summerside house that had been built for her parents. But he continued to work as a consultant with International Potato Center and such agencies as Canadian International Development Agency and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Over the years his work took him to more than 25 countries including China, India, Tanzania and Papua New Guinea.
In Summerside he put his knowledge of sustainable development to use as a volunteer board member with the Bedeque Bay Environmental Management Association, a non-profit group that focuses on local ecosystem issues. He helped with the establishment of the Prince Edward Island Potato Museum at O'Leary and worked on setting up a local library in a former train station. He also laid out a heritage tree walking tour that highlighted species imported from Europe by pioneers or from points abroad by early seafarers. That project won him the nickname Tree Man of Summerside.
In recent years, he began writing poetry, with environmental issues as one of his most common themes. He continued to keep up with developments in science until he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
Orville Thomas PAGE was born in Burlington, Ontario, on February 13, 1921. He died of pulmonary arrest on August 4, 2007, in Summerside. He was 86. His wife, Norma Isobel (née Ellis), died in 2006. He leaves his daughter, Karen Marantz, his son, William PAGE, and his sister, Grace Bridle.
