Venture capitalist understood both ends of the corporate ladder
A man who liked to say he didn't so much as invest in a company as back a friend, his greatest success came from backing an invention by a lifelong pal, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
An astute observer of human character and an extremely successful venture capitalist, Bram APPEL grew up on St. Urbain Street in Montreal - as unlike Mordecai Richler's Duddy Kravitz as it is possible to be. He trained as a chartered accountant, but what interested him most about doing someone's books was engaging in conversation about how a business worked, and learning its strengths and weaknesses. His inquisitive mind and ability to engage people made him an appealing conversationalist, but it was his integrity and deep sense of right and wrong that made him lasting Friends on both ends of the corporate ladder.
His earliest and biggest financial success came from backing an invention by his friend David PALL, a brilliant physical chemist he had met while they were both impoverished students at McGill University in the 1930s. That initial investment of $3,000 grew like yeast. Today, Pall Corp., a leader in filtration, separations and purification applications in industry and the biological and health sciences, has annual sales in excess of $2-billion (U.S.) and a market capitalization of more than $5-billion.
"The energy and enthusiasm he had for the whole proposition of inventing products, getting them to market widely and getting an organization to succeed and to do good, but to do it at a good profit," is what Eric KRASNOFF, chair and Chief Executive Officer of Pall, remembers most about Mr. APPEL, who only retired as founder-director at 90 in 2005.
"In board meetings, the focus is on the broad picture and new products and new markets, and in the audit meetings he would concentrate on the smallest details, such as how petty cash was managed at our plant in Japan," said Mr. KRASNOFF in a telephone interview. "He believed that you can't look at everything, but, if you look very closely at some of the small things, you get a real picture of how the whole operation is managed and what the culture is. He would come at business from the high, and from the bottom up."
Short of stature, quiet of voice, large of intellect, Mr. APPEL was known as the force behind the Force - the formidable volunteer and social, artistic and political activist Bluma APPEL (obituary, July 17, 2007). Married for 67 years, they were a devoted and complementary couple. Mrs. APPEL once joked that her husband made the money and she spent it. In fact, he was a philanthropist and a supporter of cultural ventures in his own right.
Abraham (Bram) APPEL was born in Montreal in 1915, the fourth son and fifth child of Israel and Sophia (née HECHT) APPEL. The APPELs were from Silesia (most of which is now in Poland) and had immigrated to Montreal in the early years of the last century, probably after the 1905 pogrom. They brought their skills with them - he was a blacksmith, and she sold groceries. They raised their family on St. Urbain Street near Fairmont, now a fashionable part of Montreal but then a working-class and immigrant neighbourhood.
While his struggling father wanted his sons to get out of school and into the work force, Bram aspired to be a professional. With his persuasive tongue and logical mind, he might have made a fine lawyer, but he chose accountancy because it was a faster credential to acquire. He went to McGill in 1931 - when there was said to be a quota system requiring Jewish students to earn higher marks than Christians - held down three jobs (including setting pins in a bowling alley and working as a photographer's assistant), borrowed money and won a scholarship to finance his education. It was at McGill in 1933 that he met David PALL, an impoverished science student from rural Saskatchewan who would become his lifelong friend and business partner.
Mr. APPEL graduated near the top of his class with a bachelor of commerce degree in 1935 and earned his certification the following year to become one of the youngest chartered accountants in Quebec. Partly because he was a loner, partly because of anti-Semitism at the big firms, he opened his own office, Appel and Partners, a partnership that still bears his name.
That summer of 1936, David PALL lent him $35 to pay for a week at a Jewish summer resort in the Laurentians on what may well have been the vacation during which he met Bluma LEVITT, a dynamic young woman with a wry wit and a fervent passion for social justice. They married on July 11, 1940, and soon had two sons: David, who was born in 1941, and Mark, who followed three years later.
David PALL, meanwhile, had graduated with a PhD in physical chemistry from McGill in 1939 and had gone to New York - Mr. APPEL lent him money to buy some furniture for his apartment - to work on the top-secret Manhattan Project, doing research on the atomic bombs that were later dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end the Second World War. Doctor PALL, who would eventually be the named inventor on more than 180 U.S. patents, liked to chat with Bram about the commercial possibilities for some of his discoveries.
Mr. APPEL knew very little about chemistry, but he was adept at drawing people out about things that mattered to them. During a visit to New York in June of 1944, he listened to Doctor PALL talk about his belief that industry, which was becoming increasingly complicated, would need specialized filters able to cope with high pressures, elevated temperatures and corrosive atmospheres. Dr. PALL thought he would need $15,000 and two years working in his spare time to develop a porous, stainless-steel filter that he felt would have wide industrial applications. Mr. APPEL, who by then was a married man with a wife and two small children, had scraped together $3,000. "Let's go," he said, according to a well-told story. He always liked to say he didn't invest in a company, he backed his friend.
"And that is where it all begins," said his son, David. "They were silent heroes. They didn't look for any kind of recognition, they didn't have to tell you what they were doing, or how well they did. They preferred to operate in the shadows and support others, and very often a lot of what happened came through them and others got the credit."
The company, which initially was called Micro-Metallic Corp., was established in August of 1944. At first, Doctor PALL worked in his garage in Queens and Mr. APPEL travelled to New York on the overnight train once a month to do the books. Like most start-ups, the tiny company had rough times - each potential customer had idiosyncratic needs, and the filters had to be custom-designed in the late 1940s, the bookkeeper mistakenly wrote cheques overdrawing their bank account by $7,000. Mr. APPEL staved off that crisis by borrowing money from an American friend of his brother-in-law.
In 1952, Doctor PALL persuaded his next-door neighbour, Abe KRASNOFF, a Certified Public Accountant with enviable marketing acumen and organizational skills, to join the corporation. (His son Eric, who joined the company in the mid-1970s, is now the chair and Chief Executive Officer.) The company, which changed its name to Pall Corp., began to pay back on Mr. APPEL's original investment by 1958. For the rest of his life, Mr. APPEL loved to boast that he had never sold any of his shares.
Mr. APPEL was not just a businessman. He turned a chance meeting with Jean-Luc Pepin when both were passengers on a ship crossing the Atlantic in August of 1951 into another deep Friendship and career opportunity. When Mr. Pepin was appointed minister of energy, mines and resources by Lester Pearson in 1965, he called Mr. APPEL in Montreal on a Friday evening and said, according to Mr. APPEL's recounting, "You are bored as a chartered accountant, you don't need the dough - come and be my executive assistant," adding: "If you are not here Monday morning, I will have had my answer."
Mr. APPEL and his wife were there by Sunday night, in a city they barely knew, in a milieu that was foreign to them. He worked with Mr. Pepin for two years, served as a business consultant to the National Film Board's Labyrinth project for Expo 67 in Montreal, spent a year as a consultant to Gérard Pelletier in 1970 when he was secretary of state for external affairs in Pierre Trudeau's cabinet, then worked a further two years as a consultant to Mr. Pepin when he was minister of industry and trade. Mr. APPEL retired from the bureaucracy after Mr. Pepin lost his seat in the 1972 election, but the two men then joined forces in Interimco, an export trading house.
In the mid-1970s, the APPELs moved to Toronto, where they both became active (she front and centre, and he in the background) in cultural, medical, political, social and commercial projects. As a venture capitalist, Mr. APPEL backed other high-tech start-ups over the years, including Electroline Equipment, a company that manufactures devices for the cable-television industry, Interprovincial Cablevision (now Laurential Cablevision), ENS Biologicals Inc., Sciemetric Inc., and Hi-G-Tek Inc. By now a serious multimillionaire, he established Canmont Investment Corp. to manage his venture capital and portfolio investments.
In 1998, he began donating close to $200,000 a year to the Bram Appel School-Based Project in North Bay for students from junior kindergarten through Grade 1. All the children were given snacks and lunch, and signed up for cultural and sports activities after school and in the summers. The project, which Mr. APPEL funded for five years, has since become a model for a province-wide program.
Mrs. APPEL was diagnosed with lung cancer in May and died on July 14. Mr. APPEL, who was 92 and suffering from short-term memory problems, consoled himself in the lives of his children and grandchildren. On September 24, he fell and broke his hip. He survived the operation, but he couldn't rally and declined rapidly over the next two weeks.
Abraham (Bram) APPEL was born in Montreal on January 13, 1915. He died in Toronto Western Hospital on October 11, 2007. He was 92. Predeceased by his wife, Bluma, and his four siblings, he is survived by his sons David and Mark, five grandchildren and his extended family.

BUTTEDAHL, Doctor Paz
Dr. Paz BUTTEDAHL, 65, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2007. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 25 years, Doctor Knute BUTTEDAHL. She is survived by her husband, John K. PARK, daughter Maria Beck BUTTEDAHL (Bob BECK), son John BUTTEDAHL (Lisa FERRARI), brother Valerio GOYCOOLEA (Rebecca PALMA,) and sisters Sofia GOYCOOLEA (Richard E. LANE) and Loreto GOYCOOLEA. Paz was a proud aunt of Claudia GOYCOOLEA (Mauricio MEYER,) Alexandre COULON (Maureen COULON- MENASHE,) Oliver GOYCOOLEA and great-aunt to Nicholas MEYER. She was a loving step-mother to Kim and Gary BUTTEDAHL and proud grandmother to Caleb and Alisha GRUNERT. Her family wishes to join in expressing all their love and appreciation for the extraordinary person Paz was, and for the outstanding contributions she made to the world. Paz was born in Santiago, Chile, and created a vast network of Friends, colleagues and students throughout the world, garnered through a long and distinguished career. The breadth of her experience spanned work with universities, international development organizations and agencies, and the Canadian military. Whatever the setting, common threads ran through all of her work: a passion for fostering international and intercultural understanding; a focus on sustainable development; and a belief in the possibility of creating an equitable and socially just world. The academic portion of Paz's career involved teaching at several universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, including a faculty position at the University of British Columbia and most recently, at Royal Roads University. Her work at the universities was always characterized by a passionate commitment to her students, the injection of an international perspective and comparative education approach to her courses, and a desire to create international partnerships linking students and educators from the developing world with those in Canada. Paz was sought after as a researcher and educator specializing in international development issues, and was a consultant with many international agencies and organizations. These included the Canadian International Development Agency, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Organization of American States. Paz also worked for almost a decade with the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa. As Deputy Director of the Fellowships and Awards Division, her focus was on the development of human resources and the strengthening of institutions in the developing world through the education and training of their researchers and project staff. Paz strongly believed in learning as a crucial component in the achievement of sustainable development. In the early 1990s, as international development issues became more and more intertwined with issues of security, Paz was invited to attend the National Defense College in Kingston, Ontario, where she also contributed as the academic advisor to the Commandant. A subsequent posting to the Centre for National Security Studies provided a base for her research linking issues of sustainable development to those of human security. Paz's vast storehouse of knowledge and experience found a home and became invested in the creation of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. As founder and program head, Paz worked tirelessly to build the program and to ensure its sustainability and its relevance to the international development and security issues of today's world. The Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program was to be Paz's final contribution in a lifetime of notable achievements. In spite of failing health during the past months, she found strength in providing ongoing leadership to the program and in planning for its future. Paz, with her indomitable spirit and her vision of a world that might be, has enriched and influenced the lives of hundreds of Friends and colleagues around the world. Her loss will be deeply mourned. A celebration of her life will be held on at 1 p.m. on October 21 at Royal Roads University, 2nd Floor Grant Building, 2005 Sooke Rd. Victoria, British Columbia.

Young dad among 5 dead
Kevin GONCALVES might have survived the afternoon of road carnage had he been wearing a seatbelt.
By Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Mon., August 13, 2007
At 22, Kevin GONCALVES of Arkona was well on his way -- he had a job, a baby and a BMW he'd saved up to buy.
All that vanished Saturday, in one of four crashes on Southwestern Ontario roads that left five people dead.
Had he worn his seatbelt, GONCALVES might have survived his crash, police said.
"He was a good father and he loved his daughter very much," Larissa VAN LIESHOUT, the mother of GONCALVES' four-month-old daughter, Rozlynn, said yesterday.
GONCALVES died when the BMW he was driving crashed about 2: 30 p.m. on Melbourne Road in Adelaide Metcalfe, west of London.
GONCALVES lost control while passing on a curve and crossed into the opposite lane, striking a pickup truck, police said.
An unidentified passenger in the BMW, also 22, wasn't wearing a seatbelt, either, police said, and was flown to to a London hospital. The passenger remained in critical condition.
The pickup driver, Alyse MALLET of Melbourne, 19, who wore her seatbelt, was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
In Strathroy, GONCALVES' Friends were still recovering from the loss.
"He was really outgoing. Everyone liked him. He would always help out a friend if they needed it. That's what he would always do for me," said Steve WRAITH, who met GONCALVES in Grade 9 when both attended Strathroy District Collegiate Institute.
Along with GONCALVES, WRAITH and his girlfriend had also welcomed a newborn girl only a few months earlier.
GONCALVES worked as a shipper and receiver with egg distributor Greyridge Foods. He told Friends he was trying to save up for a condominium of his own.
WRAITH said the couples gave each other baby advice as both pregnancies developed and were excited about the births, a first for all of them.
"It was a busy time for all of us," he said.
Across the London region, other fatal crashes Saturday occurred near London, where an elderly woman died; in Huron County, where a driver plunged to his death off a bridge; and in Chatham-Kent, where two motorcycle drivers were killed in a head-on crash.
- Near Wheatley, the two motorcycle drivers died in the collision about 2: 30 p.m. that followed what police described as an attempt by one to evade an officer -- stopped on Zion Road and out of his patrol car -- trying to motion him to pull over for not wearing a safety helmet. Police said a motorcycle, driven by 21-year-old Harley PALMER of Wheatley, bypassed the officer through a field and emerged on Talbot Trail where the bike collided with another driven by Daniel McCALLUM, 26, of Dearborn, Michigan., killing both. Other motorcyclists travelling with McCALLUM were able to avoid the collision.
Ontario's police watchdog agency, the Special Investigations Unit, was notified, but is not investigating since the officer wasn't pursuing the motorcycle bike driver, police said. The Special Investigations Unit probes police actions that lead to serious injuries or death.
- In Huron County, a 31-year-old man from West Perth, in Perth County, whose name wasn't released, died after the vehicle he was driving went off a bridge at 3: 30 p.m. near Dublin.
- In Middlesex County, just outside London, a two-car collision about 2: 30 a.m. at Nairn Road and Oxbow Drive sent three people to hospital, including Marie Mae LUNHAM, 73, of Forest, who later died of her injuries. Andrew CLASSEN, 23, of London, is charged with failing to yield to traffic.
