Londoner helped map kids' studies
University of Western Ontario professor's lifetime works would fill a book.
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Tues., February 12, 2008
A Londoner who put Canada on the map for millions of school kids has died.
Edward Gustav PLEVA, a father of Canadian geography and Ontario's conservation movement, was 95.
His accomplishments would fill a book. But his biggest influence may have been as editor of The Canadian Oxford School Atlas, shown at right. The yellow- and black-covered collection of maps was common on school desks across Canada from 1957 on.
"People of my generation all grew up with the atlas," said David STOVER, president of the Oxford University Press.
"I would think there are millions of them in print."
PLEVA was editor for the first three editions. Coming up to its ninth printing, the atlas remains Oxford's biggest seller of all time in Canada, STOVER said.
"He never took a penny for it" said Dan SHRUBSOLE, head of the University of Western Ontario's geography department.
PLEVA also helped to create Ontario's conservation authorities, established the geography department at University of Western Ontario and played a lead role in developing the geography curriculum for millions of Ontario school children.
"He had a very significant impact in geography and resource management in Canada," SHRUBSOLE said.
Yet, PLEVA was a "very humble man, very committed to people," SHRUBSOLE added.
A consummate educator, whose name adorns the top award for teachers at University of Western Ontario, and a planner who helped shape the London region, PLEVA lived what he preached, a love of the geographic world.
"He loved camping and hiking, photography and baseball," SHRUBSOLE said.
His love of the outdoors grew naturally from his birthplace, Minnesota.
PLEVA was born May 12, 1912, and earned three degrees -- a bachelor's, a master's and a doctorate in geography -- from the University of Minnesota.
In 1938, Western hired the 26-year-old to teach and establish its geography program.
The Second World War interrupted the plan, when PLEVA served at the Office of Strategic Services in Washington, D.C.
Even so, PLEVA found time in 1941 to sit on the committee that developed Ontario's conservation authorities.
At the time, the province was losing its forests to over-exploitation and drought, SHRUBSOLE said.
"The landscape in Ontario was deteriorating."
The government also wanted to find work for veterans who would return after the war.
The result was the 1946 Conservation Act and the 35 conservation authorities that protect Ontario's landscape today.
By 1948, PLEVA had Western's geography department up and running and served as head for 20 years. He retired from teaching in "He was just a great teacher," SHRUBSOLE said.
After his retirement, PLEVA continued to teach some first-year courses.
Graduate students would fill the lecture hall just to hear him speak again, SHRUBSOLE said. "He must have put on quite a show."
So good a teacher was he, that University of Western Ontario named its annual award for teaching excellence the Edward G. Pleva Award.
While teaching, PLEVA found time to chair and sit on several city, regional and neighbourhood planning committees and boards and become the first editor of The Canadian Geographer journal, still published.
In 1969, London honoured PLEVA as "one of Canada's distinguished geographers" and awarded him the Distinguished Community Service Award.
PLEVA died February 7.
He was pre-deceased by his wife Grace and leaves behind sons James of Guelph and Michael of London.
His funeral is Thursday at 2 p.m. at the James A. Harris Funeral Home in London.
