BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow.

Champion of culture in Canada 'epitomized the values of the NAC'
Third-generation member of famous newspaper family grew up in a lifestyle of privilege and chose the diplomatic corps over journalism. Later, he helped launch the National Arts Centre and the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Passionate, romantic, a lover of culture, the high arts and beautiful women, Hamilton SOUTHAM was in many ways an 18th-century gentleman, given to quoting poetry, rereading the classic works of literature and history, attending opera, ballet and theatrical performances, and collecting paintings by modern masters. Until the end of his days, he expressed his faith in the ultimate meaning of life by quoting these lines from Milton's Samson Agonistes: "All is best, though we oft doubt, /What th' unsearchable dispose/Of highest wisdom brings about, / and ever best found in the close."/
Born into the third generation of the Southam newspaper dynasty, he grew up in a gilded world of wealth and privilege, in which winters were spent in Florida and summers in Europe and the family enclave at Big Rideau Lake near Ottawa. Fighting for his country for six years in the Second World War stiffened the public-service component of his complicated character. After working in journalism, he turned his back on the family business and opted for diplomacy in its Pearsonian heyday, serving as ambassador to Poland, among other postings. But it was his lengthy tenure in the trenches of the cultural, linguistic and nationalistic battlefields that forged his legacy as the builder and founding general director of the National Arts Centre, a visionary fundraiser and force behind the Canadian War Museum, the Canadian Battle of Normandy Foundation and the Valiants Memorial and an active contributor to many other cultural institutions.
How fitting that such a Canadian giant should die on Canada Day, said Peter Herrndorf, president of the National Arts Centre, describing Mr. SOUTHAM as a man of exquisite taste with a single-minded devotion to the arts and an incredible capacity for Friendship. "He had been for many years, well before I came here, one of my heroes and he stayed a hero though my professional life. Never did I imagine that I would not only build on Hamilton's legacy at the National Arts Centre, but also become his friend," said Mr. Herrndorf. "He became like a second dad to me, both in personal terms and very much in professional terms - and in typical dad terms, he was both wonderful in his support and tough when I wasn't living up to what he expected. It's a big loss because he epitomized the values of the National Arts Centre."
Gordon Hamilton SOUTHAM was born in December, 1916, and named after an uncle who had been killed two months earlier at the Battle of the Somme. His family called him Hamilton because he had an older cousin, Gordon, who lived next door, in what amounted to a family enclave in the elite Rockliffe Park area of Ottawa. His parents' house, called Lindenelm, later became the Spanish embassy.
Hamilton's father, Wilson SOUTHAM, the oldest of six sons of William SOUTHAM (1843-1932,) the proprietor of The Hamilton Spectator and founder of the Southam newspaper empire, was the publisher of the Ottawa Citizen. Hamilton's mother, Henrietta CARGILL, was the daughter of Conservative politician Henry CARGILL, who died after collapsing on the floor of the House of Commons.
The youngest of his parents' six children, Hamilton went to Elmwood School and then Ashbury College, the private boy's school in Ottawa. In those days, French was taught as though it were a dead language, so it was years before he became bilingual. But the school did nurture his love for Latin, the classics, and poetry, which he delighted in declaiming until the end of his life. He also played Gratiano in The Merchant of Venice, "lightly with exactly the right touch of flippancy," according to drama critic Ted Devlin.
After doing summer-school classes at Glebe and Lisgar Collegiates, he entered Trinity College at the University of Toronto in 1934. He graduated with a degree in history in 1939, having taken a year out, halfway through, recovering from a serious car crash that left him with a crooked smile - a rugged distinction in a classically handsome face. After U of T, he sailed to England intending to do a master's degree in modern history at Christ Church College, Oxford. Almost as soon as he arrived, Britain declared war on Germany and he enlisted in the British Army as an officer cadet in the Royal Artillery.
Simultaneously, he renewed his Friendship with Jacqueline LAMBERT- DAVID, the daughter of a sculptor from a land-owning French family. They had met in Canada that summer through family Friends. When the hostilities commenced, she managed to make her way back to London by ship from New York because the United States was still neutral. They married in London on April 15, 1940, while he was in training. (They eventually had four children and were divorced in the late 1960s; she died in 1998.) A month after the wedding, he received his commission as a lieutenant.
Meanwhile, the 40th battery of the Canadian Field Artillery (in which his uncle and namesake, Gordon SOUTHAM, had served) had mobilized for active service under Frank Keen, assistant editor of the Hamilton Spectator, as the 11th Army Field Regiment, 40th Battalion of Hamilton. As soon as the battalion arrived in England, Lt. SOUTHAM applied for a transfer from the British Army so that he could serve with the Canadian Forces. By the autumn of 1943, the 1st Canadian Infantry Division, which was heavily engaged in Italy, urgently needed replacements. He volunteered to join the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. He fought in the battle of Ortona in December, 1943, and the final battle of Monte Cassino from April to May, 1944, and was part of the advance of the Canadian Army up through Italy and later from Marseilles northward in France. He was mentioned in dispatches for "gallant and distinguished services" and demobilized with the rank of captain.
After the war, he worked briefly for The Times of London before returning to Canada and an uneasy job as an editorial writer for the Citizen in 1946. "I couldn't write quickly enough," he said in an interview at his home in Rockliffe in 2004. "My editor would give me a subject - 500 words on such and such a subject by 3 o'clock. My instinct was to go to the parliamentary library for a week and then come back with the 500 words," he said. "I was wretched." He went to his uncle Harry SOUTHAM, then publisher of the Citizen, and said, "I can't manage to do this, so I am going to External Affairs."
He wrote the examinations and joined the department in 1948 under Lester Pearson at a time when Canada "had a role to play" and when being part of the foreign service was "riding the crest of a wave, as far as I was concerned." It was "a wonderful time," Mr. SOUTHAM said, his eyes flashing under his expressive beetle brows. "Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, But to be young was very heaven!" he said, quoting Wordsworth.
In 1949, Mr. SOUTHAM (and his family, which now included a second son, Christopher, who is now called Abdul) was posted to Stockholm as third secretary under ambassador Tommy Stone. After nearly four years, they returned to Ottawa before being posted to Warsaw as chargé d'affaires in March, 1959. By then, the Southams had two more children, Jennifer and Michael. This posting was one of the highlights of Mr. SOUTHAM's diplomatic career because he solved the "Polish Treasures" problem.
After Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, the curator of Krakow removed a number of treasures from Wawel Castle, including tapestries and the sword of state. Following a circuitous route, they ended up in museum warehouses in Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City. After the war, Poland, then behind the Iron Curtain, requested the return of its state treasures. That was fine with the Canadian federal government, but not with Maurice Duplessis, then premier of Quebec. He refused to hand anything over to a Communist government. Amid the diplomatic fracas, "we never sent an ambassador there and they never sent an ambassador here," Mr. SOUTHAM explained.
Mr. Duplessis died in office in September, 1959, and was succeeded by Paul Sauvé, "a more rational man" who agreed to ship the treasures back, causing Poland and Canada "to unfreeze their governments and to exchange ambassadors." And so, Mr. SOUTHAM's grateful government promoted him "sur place" to the rank of ambassador in April, 1960.
In 1962, the Southams returned to Ottawa, where he was appointed head of the information division at External Affairs. He was at work one day when he received a visit from Faye Loeb of the IGA grocery chain. She wanted him to help spearhead a citizens' move to build a performing arts centre in Ottawa. Rashly, he promised to find an appropriate candidate and, if necessary, to take charge himself.
"Time ran out and Faye came back," is the way he described his assumption of the leadership of the National Capital Arts Alliance in 1963. At its height, the alliance included about 60 arts organizations in Ottawa. They raised enough money (about $7,000) to commission a feasibility study, which recommended both the building of a performing arts centre and the holding of an annual national festival in Ottawa. In 1964, Mr. SOUTHAM took the completed study (with its projected costs of $9-million) to his old boss Mr. Pearson, by this point prime minister, and persuaded him that the proposed building would be an ideal centennial project for the federal government.
"He thought about it for a month and then came back and said, 'We'll do it,' Mr. SOUTHAM said. "After that, it was his project and he never gave up on it." The prime minister arranged for Mr. SOUTHAM to be lent from External Affairs to Secretary of State, which appointed him co-ordinator of the National Arts Centre in February, 1964.
The decision about the architect for the new facility was left up to Mr. SOUTHAM. He recommended Fred LEBENSOLD, who had already built the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, had won the competition for Confederation Centre in Charlottetown, and would later build Place des Arts in Montreal. Mr. LEBENSOLD did a quick estimate of $16-million and signed on as architect. Mr. SOUTHAM was appointed inaugural director of the National Arts Centre in 1967 and oversaw the construction of Mr. LEBENSOLD's hexagonal buildings on 2.6 hectares on the banks of the Rideau River, defending vociferous criticism along the way as the costs spiralled to a final tally of more than $46-million. (By this time, Mr. SOUTHAM's first marriage had disintegrated. He married Gro MORTENSON of Oslo in 1968, with whom he had two children, Henrietta and Gordon. He and his second wife were divorced in the late 1970s, but as with all of Mr. SOUTHAM's wives, she remained on affectionate terms with him.)
The multifaceted performance centre, with three halls including the country's first professional opera house, two restaurants, two theatre companies and its own touring symphony orchestra, opened in June of 1969 with the National Ballet of Canada performing two commissioned ballets - The Queen by Grant Strate to music by Louis Applebaum, and Kraanerg by Roland Petit to music by Iannis Xenakis. The following night, when the ballet danced John Cranko's Romeo and Juliet, something went wrong with the technology in the orchestra pit. Conductor George Crum and some of his musicians slowly ascended above stage level, leading Mr. Crum to say later that it was "the only time I ever looked down on Celia Franca," who was performing as Lady Capulet. After two terms as director-general, Mr. SOUTHAM stepped down in March of 1977.
Less than a year later, after a short respite spent sailing his yacht, Mr. SOUTHAM was persuaded by secretary of state John Roberts to become chair of Festival Canada and take charge of the national celebrations on Canada Day. He was paid a dollar a year and required to appear before a Commons committee to answer questions about his mandate and budget. When some members criticized the fluently bilingual Mr. SOUTHAM for preparing a report in English - he said later that he hadn't had time to have it translated - he sent a letter resigning from his post in French to the minister. It was rejected and Mr. SOUTHAM oversaw celebrations in hundreds of communities across the country and a blow-out televised extravaganza on Parliament Hill on the theme "You and Me - Le Canada, C'est Toi et Moi." In the 1980s, Mr. SOUTHAM was a partner in Lively Arts Market Builders, a scheme to create a television channel devoted to producing and broadcasting plays, concerts, films and programs on the arts. The group received a cable television licence and launched the pay-television C Channel in January, 1983. But it failed to attract subscribers and went into receivership six months later. Rogers Cablesystems Inc. bought its pay-television licence that December for $12,500.
(The following year, Mr. SOUTHAM married for the third and final time. Marion TANTON, a French woman he had known and loved for many years, was the wife of the late Pierre CHARPENTIER, a former Canadian ambassador, and the mother of his three children. She died of cancer in May, 2005.)
In January, 1985, prime minister Brian Mulroney appointed Mr. SOUTHAM chair of the Official Residences Council, a civilian oversight group he had established amidst mounting criticism of the cost of maintaining official residences. Mr. SOUTHAM's tenure was not an easy one; there were political brawls about work done on the speaker's house in Kingsmere; on Stornoway, the residence of the opposition leader; and on both official prime ministerial residences.
His beloved National Arts Centre went through a long period of turmoil beginning in the mid-1980s, involving funding crises, a revolving series of chairs and artistic directors and a strike by the National Arts Centre orchestra, before it began to stabilize more than a decade later with the appointment in the late 1990s of David Leighton as chair of the board and Mr. Herrndorf as president and chief executive - thanks in no small part to Mr. SOUTHAM's behind-the-scenes lobbying. Early in 2000, during Mr. Herrndorf's tenure, a grateful National Arts Centre renamed its opera auditorium Southam Hall in his honour and threw a lavish party for him on his 90th birthday.
After attending the rededication of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on September 17, 1999, Mr. SOUTHAM met some Friends for lunch at the Rideau Club. He had been "moved" by the ceremony and by governor-general Adrienne Clarkson's "wonderful" speech, and he began thinking that the fallen soldier "should have some company on Confederation Square," rather like the "great cloud of witnesses," described by St. Paul in his epistles. Those lunchtime musings led to his final public campaign, which was realized seven years later when Governor-General Michaëlle Jean unveiled the $1.1-million Valiants Memorial. He considered the Valiants his second great project after the National Arts Centre. "Parliament Hill is full of statues of prime ministers and politicians, some of them good, some of them not good. But in Ottawa, there shouldn't just be statues of politicians," he said. "It is the capital of the country and there should be statues of the men and women who have made this country."
Aside from building monuments to others, Mr. SOUTHAM enjoyed sitting in the study of his Ottawa home, a well-proportioned, light-filled room lined with bookcases, rereading the complete works of Anthony Trollope and "contemplating three generations of reading." He had his grandfather's books on the top shelf, his father's Everyman editions on the second and his own books on the third shelf. As well, he was examining his own soul. "I have lived my life, and that which I have done may God himself make pure," he said. "I meditate and I don't compare today with yesterday. I have more important comparisons, concerning my inner life, and I have much to think about." He was an Anglican, but he "was thinking the same thoughts" as a Catholic or a Jew or a Muslim. The soul is a more important part of our being than character," he said. "It is essential."
And so he spent his last years in contemplation and in visiting with close Friends and family, enjoying life and engaged with the world around him.
On Canada Day, he was about to go for a drive with his valet when he suddenly felt tired. He lay down for a rest and quietly died.
Gordon Hamilton SOUTHAM was born in Ottawa on December 19, 1916. He died July 1, 2008, at home in Ottawa of complications from cancer. He was 91. He is survived by his second wife, Gro MORTENSON, his six children and his extended family. A private family funeral is planned followed by a memorial service at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, Ottawa, later in July.

SOUTHAM, Gordon Hamilton
Hamilton SOUTHAM died peacefully at home on Tuesday July 1st at the age of 91. He was born in Ottawa on December 19th, 1916, the youngest child of Wilson Mills SOUTHAM and Henrietta Alberta CARGILL. After graduating from the University of Toronto with a degree in history in 1939, he abandoned his graduate studies at Christ Church College, Oxford in order to join the war effort and enrolled in the British Army as an officer cadet in the Royal Artillery winning his commission in 1940. That same year, when the Canadian Army reached Britain, he transferred to the Canadian 11th Army Field Regiment, 40th Battalion of Hamilton (in which his uncle and namesake, Gordon Hamilton, had served until he was killed in action at the battle of the Somme in 1916). In 1943, responding to an urgent call for replacements at the front, he volunteered to join the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery in Italy. He saw action at the battle of Ortona as well as the final battle of Monte Cassino and was mentioned in dispatches.
After the war he worked at the Times of London and the Ottawa Citizen before joining the Department of External Affairs in 1948. He was posted to Sweden from 1949 to 1953, and in 1959, was posted to Poland, where he served first as chargé d'affaires and later as ambassador. On his return to Ottawa in 1962 he was appointed head of the information division of External Affairs. In 1963 he assumed the leadership of the National Capital Arts Alliance, a grouping of some 60 arts organizations in Ottawa pressing for the building of a national performing arts centre. A feasibility study was commissioned and the Pearson government was persuaded to adopt the project in celebration of Canada's centennial. He was appointed co-ordinator of the National Arts Centre, in February, 1964 with the task of overseeing the construction and planning the programmes and activities of the new institution. After the National Arts Centre's opening, in 1969, he served two terms as director-general before stepping down in 1977.
Of particular note among his many activities since his retirement from the National Arts Centre are his founding and presidency of the Canadian Mediterranean Institute from 1980 to 1986 and a variety of initiatives aimed at raising public consciousness of the importance of the military in Canadian history. He was a founder of the Battle of Normandy Foundation, 1992, one of the main initiators of the new War Museum, inaugurated in 2005 and the founder and president of the Valiants Foundation, responsible for the erection of the Valiants Memorial on Confederation square, in Ottawa, inaugurated by Governor-General Michaëlle Jean in He married Jacqueline LAMBERT- DAVID in 1940 and they had four children, Peter, Abdul, Jennifer and Michael. In 1969, he married Gro MORTENSEN, and they had two children, Henrietta and Gordon. In 1981 he married Marion TANTOT, mother of Frederic, Manon and Virginie. He shared with Marion his retirement years in Grignan, France, and Ottawa. Marion died in 2005. He will be sadly missed by Gro Mortensen SOUTHAM, his children, his ten grandchildren, and his extended family and Friends. A private family funeral was held on Friday and a memorial service will be held at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church 125 Mackay Street, Ottawa, on Sunday July 20th at 1 p.m.
If desired, donations can be made in his memory to the National Youth and Education Trust at the National Arts Center P.O. Box 1534, Stn B, Ottawa Ontario K1P 5W1.
