He was 'the last of a generation of real publishers' in Canada
A wordsmith who learned the book business in New York, he moved to Toronto in search of independence, writes Sandra MARTIN. 'He wanted to make a difference, and he thought he could do it with information'
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
An entrepreneur, a wordsmith and a fiercely independent businessman with a canny eye for real estate, Robert FITZHENRY moved to Canada from the New York publishing world in 1966 and established Fitzhenry and Whiteside. In the 1970s and 1980s, Fitz and Witz was a prominent player in the Canadian book scene, doing about $20-million in annual business, mainly by representing Harper and Row and other major U.S. publishers.
Initially, Mr. FITZHENRY was a distributor who claimed he had no interest in publishing books (known to be one of the more spectacular ways of going broke, especially in the days before wide-scale federal and provincial subsidies). Then, almost without trying, he won a couple of huge contracts to produce elementary-school, social-study materials from the province of British Columbia in the late 1960s. "He wanted to make a difference," said his daughter Sharon FITZHENRY, now president of the company, "and he thought he could do it with information."
So, he began publishing an eclectic list of non-fiction titles, mostly reference works that reflected his own fascination with words and language. F&W's first trade title, which appeared in centennial year, was Public Opinion and Canadian Identity, a statistical analysis of Canadians and their perceptions of Canada. He later published a significant series of reference books, including developing and producing several editions of the Funk and Wagnalls Canadian College Dictionary, the F&W Book of Quotations, The Canadian Thesaurus and Canadian Facts and Dates.
"Sponsoring studies on Canadian English as Bob has done for so many years is a relatively self-effacing activity with modest dividends for a publisher," J.K. (Jack) CHAMBERS, professor of linguistics at the University of Toronto, wrote in the preface to the 2001 edition of the thesaurus. "Neither his profile nor his profit margin makes Bob do it. It goes deeper than that. Bob FITZHENRY is word-struck, and always has been. His feelings are word-shaped. He published these books because he wants to read them. Those of us who are also word-struck are in his debt."
Describing Mr. FITZHENRY as "a decent guy," and "a smart businessman," bookseller Frans DONKER of the Book City chain in Toronto said of his former employer: "He was a quiet guy, definitely not a Jack McClelland, but he had influence. I think a lot of people in this industry owe him a big favour for letting them [as young kids] run divisions or offices in other parts of the country," said Mr. DONKER, himself the beneficiary of Mr. FITZHENRY's laissez-faire management style.
As a publisher, Mr. FITZHENRY "saw opportunities and went after them," said Marty CUTLER, now owner of Fairmount Books, a Markham, Ontario, wholesale and remainder operation, who worked as a sales rep for Fitzhenry and Whiteside more than 30 years ago. "He was generous, supportive, encouraging and fascinating. Here was an incredibly well-read, self-educated man, so it was very interesting to have such a smart guy, and such an interesting guy, mentor me. He was the last of a generation of real publishers and we are very lucky to have had him."
Early Years
Robert (Bob) Irvine FITZHENRY, the only son of Irvine and Margaret (LANE) FITZHENRY, was born in New York in the last year of the First World War. His sister, Ann, was born two years later. Irvine FITZHENRY, who was a travelling clock and watch salesman and repairman, had undiagnosed Huntington's disease (a genetic neurological disorder that affects movement, emotions and mental abilities) and was often mistakenly assumed to be a hopeless drunk. His daughter inherited Huntington's and died in 1961, but his son was spared.
During the Depression, and the most debilitating stages of her husband's illness, Margaret FITZHENRY supported her family by opening a pricey restaurant, Margaret Ann's Tearoom, in New Rochelle, New York Bob was the busboy.
After completing high school in New Rochelle, Mr. FITZHENRY enrolled in the University of Michigan, where he worked on the university paper, The Michigan Daily, and earned money in the summers in Florida as a tutor. He graduated in 1938 with a bachelor's degree in English and became a stringer for United Press International, working out of Columbus, Ohio. He quickly rose to chief of that United Press International branch, but quit after he was forced to witness an execution at the Ohio State Penitentiary.
He was drafted into the U.S. Army and was sent to boot camp at Fort Dix, N.J. After training, he was posted to Newport, R.I., then the enclave of many of America's richest families, serving as a sergeant on a searchlight crew watching the seas and the sky for enemy submarines and aircraft. After Pearl Harbour, he transferred to the U.S. Army Air Forces, trained in Texas as a bomber pilot and was promoted to lieutenant. The Second World War ended before he could be sent overseas.
After he was demobilized, he went to work for Harper and Brothers as a junior salesman in the southeastern United States, travelling by train and later in a car, which he named Hesperus, with trunks of books. In 1949, Mr. FITZHENRY was promoted and transferred to Chicago by his mentor, Cass Canfield (the editor and executive who brought James Thurber and E.B. White to Harper's, and one of the founders of the journal Foreign Affairs). That same year, on January 22, Mr. FITZHENRY married Hilda ANDERSON, who was what would now be called an executive assistant to a financial estate manager on Wall Street. Eventually they had three children: Sharon, Bridget (who died from a heart attack in 1987) and Hollister (Holly.) Mrs. FITZHENRY died on February 8, 2007, at the age of 91.
Mr. FITZHENRY rose to the position of vice-president of sales for Harper and Row (the company that was formed in 1962 after the merger of Harper and Brothers and Row, Peterson and Co.), but after nearly 20 years with Harper, he "was tired of working for somebody else," Sharon FITZHENRY said. He toyed with the idea of moving to Australia or buying a little newspaper in Rhode Island, but eventually settled on Canada.
A consummate animal lover, Mr. FITZHENRY wanted to bring the family pets, which included the requisite cats and dogs, a pony and a burro named Mahalia along with his household goods. Apparently, he was stopped by Canada Customs and Immigration and sent a message back to his wife in New York saying, "I can't get my ass across the border."
Fitzhenry and Whiteside
He set up Fitzhenry and Whiteside with Cecil WHITESIDE (vice-president, sales for the Musson Book Co.) in Scarborough, now part of greater Toronto. The two men knew each other because Mr. WHITESIDE had been buying Harper books from Mr. FITZHENRY for years. In the new company, which was founded on April Fool's Day, 1966, Mr. FITZHENRY managed the sales, marketing and finance (that included representing the huge Harper and Row account in Canada) while Mr. WHITESIDE was in charge of servicing orders.
From 1970 to 1974, Peter CRABTREE, now president of Crabtree Publishing, helped build a school textbook division for Fitzhenry and Whiteside. " This was new territory for 'Fitz,' Mr. CRABTREE said in an e-mail message, "because his company was centred around selling to bookstores and libraries." Nevertheless, "he threw himself into the challenge with vigour, enthusiasm, and humour" and "we spent many happy hours recalling our misadventures with departments of education across Canada, as we competed with Canada's publishing community for school adoptions."
Mr. DONKER began working for Mr. FITZHENRY as a sales rep in eastern Canada in 1971. Two years later, Mr. FITZHENRY "threw him the ball to set up a remainder division" called Beaver Books. Mr. DONKER, who was in his mid-20s and had only been in Canada (from his native Holland) for four years, is still grateful for the opportunity. "Fitz did that to many a young snip-snapper," said Mr. DONKER, "and he would seldom interfere." Every two weeks or so, they would discuss sales and "progress" but essentially Mr. DONKER was on his own "to run the division and make mistakes and learn on the job" - work experience that Mr. DONKER took with him when he founded Book City in 1976.
"You could call him eccentric," said Mr. DONKER, remembering that Mr. FITZHENRY still sent handwritten letters to authors and booksellers in the 1970s and that he once published a book on the history of the Holstein cow. The title caused great hilarity in the trade, according to Mr. DONKER, but it ended up selling more than 10,000 copies.
Sharon FITZHENRY, who was a children's librarian in Indiana, came to Toronto to work with her father in 1971, about the time her marriage broke up. She described her father as "a damn tough boss," who was "always in charge." Before starting work at F&W, Ms. FITZHENRY, who had been a heavy smoker, had been nicotine-free for two years - "Within two months I was smoking again," she said. But that was fine with her because, as she admitted, "I'm nuts about the man."
In the mid-1990s, she succeeded him as president of F&W and has since expanded the publishing program, especially in the area of children's books, with the acquisition of Stoddard Kids in 2002 and Red Deer Press in 2005.
Mr. FITZHENRY had a sharp eye for the bottom line and he tended to consider authors and freelance editors mere suppliers instead of delicate artistes in need of financial and editorial nurturing. He was also stubborn. After signing a contract with John Robert Colombo in 1973 to produce Colombo's Canadian Quotations and receiving two-thirds of the manuscript, Mr. FITZHENRY decided the book would sell better with a new title: The Fitzhenry and Whiteside Book of Canadian Quotations. An "aghast" Mr. Colombo demurred at a very chilly lunch, but Mr. FITZHENRY, who appeared to have a momentary hearing loss, was intransigent. Mr. Colombo took his book away and saw it published with great success in 1974 by Hurtig Publishers in Edmonton.
In the late 1980s, mergers and acquisitions were rocking the publishing industry. About the time that Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. acquired Harper and Row in the U.S. in 1987 and William Collins and Sons in 1990 to form HarperCollins, there was a move to establish a Canadian company called Harper, Fitzhenry and Collins. The plan was to run it out of F&W's 7,000-square-metre warehouse and office facility in Markham, which had turned into an astute real-estate purchase on Mr. FITZHENRY's part. The new company would amalgamate the Canadian agency business of both Harper and Collins and establish a Canadian-owned publishing arm called Fitzhenry that would be eligible for government book-publishing programs. The problem, according to an industry expert, was that Mr. FITZHENRY wanted to run the whole show and wasn't willing to answer to either an American or a British superior. Giving up his independence after 20 years of being his own boss was a cost he wasn't willing to consider, no matter the compensations. Consequently, the deal fell through, HarperCollins was formed in Canada and Mr. FITZHENRY lost the lucrative Harper and Row agency business that had been a very significant part of his bottom line for more than 20 years.
Final Days
Mr. FITZHENRY had a stroke in 1995 that left him paralyzed on his right side and suffering from aphasia. Showing enormous grit, he relearned some communication skills. Mr. Cutler remembers visiting him with Mr. DONKER. "We had to initiate the conversation and keep it going, but he could still listen and communicate with his eyes," Mr. Cutler said with admiration.
Another stroke, five years later, left Mr. FITZHENRY unable to swallow and drastically diminished his ability to communicate. After 2000, he was bedridden and nurtured by a feeding tube. With enormous help from his family, he was able to live in his own home, where he eventually died in his sleep.
Robert Irvine FITZHENRY was born in New York on April 10, 1918. He died in Toronto last Thursday. He was 89 and had suffered two severe strokes. Predeceased by his wife, Hilda, and his daughter Bridget, he is survived by daughters Sharon and Hollister, three grandchildren and extended family. A private family funeral will be followed by a memorial service at a later date.

WATTERS, Shelagh Muriel (née DILLON)
Shelagh WATTERS died in Newmarket on June 22, 2008 after a short battle with cancer which she waged with dignity and courage. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Doctor Neil WATTERS, and her devoted children, grandchildren and their families: Douglas WATTERS and daughter-in-law Maggie GOSSELIN, of Toronto, grand_son Isaac WATTERS, granddaughter Doctor Caitlin PEPPERELL and husband Ted BURNS of Menlo Park, California and great-granddaughter Myrna BURNS; Doctor James WATTERS and daughter-in-law Patricia WATTERS of Ottawa, grand_son Sean WATTERS and granddaughter Sarah WATTERS Michael WATTERS and daughter-in-law Terri WATTERS of Atherton, California and grand_sons Grant WATTERS and Neil WATTERS; and daughter Louise CRAIG and son-in-law Albert CRAIG, III, of Rochester, New York, and grand_son Albert CRAIG, IV. Born in Simcoe, Ontario on January 3, 1924, Shelagh was the eldest daughter of Brigadier M.M. DILLON and Muriel HICKS. She is survived by her brother Doctor Michael DILLON of London, her sister-in-law Elizabeth DILLON of Toronto and her sister Doctor Diana JOHNSON of Minden. She was predeceased by brothers John (1926,) Col. Richard DILLON (2008,) brother-in-law Gerald JOHNSON and sister-in-law Maggie DILLON. She grew up in London, Ontario during the 30's on a small farm, and took on family responsibilities from an early age. Shelagh graduated from high school at age 15, worked for an insurance company, and quickly decided this was not for her. She completed training in physiotherapy at the University of Toronto in 1944, and then joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps as Lt. (N/S). She served in Ottawa and Montreal, and then at London Military Hospital, Crumlin, Ontario, where she met Neil. They were married in London on November 1, 1947, and lived briefly in Galt, in Toronto until 1987, and then at the farm in Cookstown, Ontario, with winters in Crystal River, Florida. Shelagh was guided by duty, love and beauty. She set herself high standards, often critical of her own work. An artist in all she did, she strove to bring harmony (at times to a house of unruly boys), nurturing both family and community. She had a special bond with her daughters-in-law and granddaughters, being both mentor and mother to all. A lifelong learner, she attended many University of Toronto extension courses. She was a figure skater in her youth, played the piano well and exposed her children to music. After trips to Europe, Shelagh became a fine chef. Her cooking was an inspiration to her daughter and daughters-in-law, and even to her sons. In latter years, bounty from Neil's garden in Cookstown was preserved for family and Friends. Each grandchild now treasures their own beautiful quilt, made by Shelagh and filled with personal references. She was an avid gardener. A member of the Garden Club of Toronto, she excelled at dried flower arrangements. Her gardens at Cookstown were included in tours. In the early 1970s, Shelagh joined the Association of Woman Electors, attending meetings at City Hall, helping to improve oversight and governance. Later in life Shelagh began to paint, and became a very accomplished watercolourist. She studied with distinguished teachers, a number of whom became lifelong Friends. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses of the Southlake Regional Health Centre for their skill and kindness to Shelagh, and invite those wishing to make a donation to consider the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (www.southlakeregional.org/foun dation.html). The family invite Friends to visit us at the farm at Cookstown on Saturday, June 28 between two and six p.m., or to send messages of condolence to neilwatters3@gmail.com. Directions to the farm are at 705 458 9135.
