Jeremy HICKS
By Tom ADAIR, Tuesday, September 6, 2005, Page A18
Friend, teammate, inspiration, role model, teacher. Born March 6, 1987, in Kingston, Ontario Died May 6 in Kingston, of a brain hemorrhage resulting from a collision with an opponent while playing soccer, aged 18.
Although Jeremy was taken from all of us far too soon, the positive impact he had on our school community was disproportionate to his age.
Jeremy grew up on a farm just north of Kingston with his parents, Neil and Nancy, and his sister, Emily. As we listened to stories that his Friends and family told about his life at the memorial service, we weren't at all surprised to hear that his influence was felt well beyond our hallways, classrooms and fields at LaSalle Secondary School.
His best friend, Chad, told us a story about one of their fishing outings. (Because we all know how competitive teenage boys can be, the conclusion of this story caught us off guard a little.) Chad described how one morning last summer they got their tackle boxes and headed out to one of Jeremy's lucky fishing spots. As they fished away the morning hours, every time Jeremy saw a "big one" lurking in the water below, he kept showing Chad where to throw in his line rather than catch it himself. That night when they laughed themselves to sleep, Chad recalled the smile Jeremy had on his face despite the fact that he had caught six fish and Jeremy had caught none.
Whether at school, on the street or at the farm, those who crossed Jeremy's path were immediately affected: It could have been a smile, a hug, a "Hello," a wave, a joke or a jab, but he always had a way of brightening up your day with the simplest of gestures as one lost Grade 9 girl found out. She was late and trying to find her class on the first day of school last year. The halls were pretty empty and she looked stressed. Jeremy approached her and asked if he could help. She told him the classroom number and he didn't just give her directions (as many of us would have), he walked her right to the room.
If Jeremy had a character flaw it might have been his passion for sports. Jeremy competed hard at everything he played and was dedicated to improving himself in order to perform better. He only played school football for the first time in Grade 12. Despite the late start in football, he was so keen on becoming a better receiver, he was spotted by one of his coaches "just trying out" his new football gloves, wearing them during the Terry Fox Run.
At school we often saw the Jeremy who was quite serious about athletics and academics, but at home he was known as a bit of a family "clown." His parents told me about how he embarrassed his father one Christmas Day while practising to be one of Canada's future Olympic flag-bearers. With the whole extended family gathered for a holiday feast, Jeremy took the opportunity to run around the entire house with his father's underwear proudly displayed at the end of a very long stick.
With Jeremy now gone, and the start of another semester upon us, our thoughts must turn to the gifts he has left behind. One gift is the memories of him that so many of us have.
However, just as important is what there is to learn from the effects of his tragic death. Jeremy taught us that each and every interaction we have with those around us has the potential to have a significant and lasting impact.
In leaving us, Jeremy taught us the power of loss and love and has helped clarify that the single most important priority has to be how we treat others on a day-to-day basis.
Tom ADAIR, one of Jeremy's teachers, wrote this with help from Jeremy's Friends and other teachers.

Richard HARRINGTON, Photographer (1911-2005)
Among his best known works were the haunting images he captured of Hudson Bay Inuit in 1950
By Sandra MARTIN, Thursday, October 13, 2005, Page S7
Photographer Richard HARRINGTON was fascinated by the human face, but always in a particular space or landscape. He took photographs of Mao Zedong in China during the Cultural Revolution, Fidel Castro at a memorial service for his comrade Che Guevara in Cuba and the last surviving Yagan Indian on Navarino Island in Chile.
His most famous photographs, however, were taken in the Canadian Arctic on a series of trips he made between 1948 and 1953, travelling alone across the frozen tundra by dogsled with an Inuit guide and sleeping in igloos.
"He captured people and the land in which they lived," said photography guru Lorraine Monk yesterday. "We wouldn't know what our country looked like otherwise."
Art and photography critic Gary Michael Dault says he was "first and foremost a documentary photographer who was more concerned with accuracy than aesthetics or the attractive surface of things. If his photographs possess beauty -- and I think they do -- it is a beauty that comes from his deep feeling that they have encapsulated the way things really were."
Richard HARRINGTON, or Adeeliorli (the man with the box) as the Inuit called him, was born in Hamburg, Germany. He never liked to talk about his childhood, but he did admit, reluctantly, in an interview with The Globe and Mail five years ago, that he arrived "friendless, penniless and homeless" in Canada in the mid 1920s, when he was 15 or 16.
He worked on a Mennonite farm for a while and, during the Depression, he was a hobo, "bumming around" and riding freight trains across the country looking for work. By the late 1930s, he found a job taking "progress" photographs of babies at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
On the side, he made notes about babies who had been born in the hospital; after they were safely home, he'd knock on the door and offer to take photographs of the new arrival for 25 cents a print. From this door-to-door trade he graduated to selling his pictures to newspapers and magazines. The first photograph he sold was a shot of a bridge against sunlight. "I got paid two dollars," he remembered proudly.
He married his first wife, Evelyn (Lyn) DAVIS in June, 1942. For decades they roamed the world, plying their trade as freelance photographer and writer. He clicked the shutter and developed the film and she did the interviews and wrote the copy. Then they sold the package to magazines. On a good day they could produce as many as four stories, two in the morning and two in the afternoon.
His first camera was an early Leica with an Elmar F3.5 lens, "a beautiful, precision instrument." Later he bought a Rolleiflex with a fixed lens. He found it "bulky" but sturdy and he loved its "wonderful" silent shutter.
When he went to the Arctic, he wore his cameras like pendants inside his clothes and slept with them next to his chest, "like a baby" to keep them warm. They stuck to his moist skin in the freezing air, sometimes pulling out his eyebrows. His fingers were too numb to take more than two or three shots at a time, and he could only change rolls of film in the dim shelter of an igloo because the film Turned brittle in the subzero temperatures.
Mr. HARRINGTON's most famous Arctic trip was the time he spent in the Keewatin District west of Hudson Bay, in what is now Nunavut. Starting from Churchill, Manitoba, he travelled by dogsled with Kumok, his friend and guide, to Eskimo Point -- a tiny community that had grown up around a Hudson's Bay Co. post that had been established in the 1920s. From there, they went searching for the remote camps of the Padleimiut clan.
The Padleimiut were inland hunters and gatherers who lived on the tree line, hunting migratory birds and caribou. Famine was a regular part of the life cycle of this nomadic people who had lived and died on the land in an unchanging pattern for thousands of years.
Game was so scarce in the late winter of 1950 that the Padleimiut were starving when Mr. HARRINGTON and his guide came across them that February. He wrote in his diary: "Dogs are dying everywhere.... Since Eskimos must travel to obtain food and furs, it means they cannot move around any more."
He shared his supplies, took photographs and, when he arrived back in Churchill, he raised the alarm and sounded a public outcry that compelled the Canadian government to send supply planes to drop food near the camps. The food was too late for many and inappropriate for those who were still alive. Dried peas and beans were useless because the Padleimiut didn't have cooking fuel.
His photographs bear witness to a nomadic way of life and death that had gone unchanged for tens of thousands of years. There is a picture that Mr. HARRINGTON took of a young mother in labour on her hands and knees while her toddler lies on the floor of the igloo beside her. Another picture shows Arnalukjuak, a stoic old woman who has been left alone to die in a cold, iced-over igloo. He gave her some tobacco for her soapstone pipe, but she was too weak to suck on it. The next morning she was dead of cold and hunger.
Photographer Edward Steichen selected a print of a woman named Keenaq rubbing noses with a child called Keepseeyuk for his famous Family of Man exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York later in 1950.
Ms. Monk mounted an elaborate exhibition of Mr. HARRINGTON's work called The Incredible Journeys: Photographs from the Canadian Far North: 1947-1952 in 1987. She speaks of him and his work with reverence, comparing him with artists such as Rembrandt.
In his time, Richard HARRINGTON visited more than 100 countries, travelling from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from Albania to Zaire, and had his work published in Life, Look, National Geographic, Paris Match and Der Stern and in more than two dozen books. He sold photographs to the Smithsonian Institution, the National Archives of Canada, and the Museum of Modern Art. For the rest of his life, he regretted selling the negatives to so many of his Arctic photographs to the National Archives. "I sold them 2,500 negatives and more words than in Forever Amber for $7,000 when I needed the money," he said bitterly in 2000.
His first wife died in the late 1980s and he married librarian Margaret ADAIR in February, 1995. They lived quietly in Leaside, a small Toronto community. In 2000, his work was celebrated when he was awarded the Order of Canada and his old friend, anthropologist Edward Carpenter, privately published Padlei Diary 1950.
That same year he suffered a heart attack and spent three months in hospital. After he recovered, he made his wife Margaret promise not to send him back to hospital. Last Thursday, he had a second heart attack, fell and hit his head. She, good to her promise, cared for him at home.

Vanier worker everyone's Grandma
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter
Florence (Peggy) HOARE dedicated her life to helping children.
After staying home to raise her son and daughter into their teen years, HOARE became one of Madame Vanier Children's Services most celebrated staff members for her ability to help troubled kids.
"When you talk about unconditional caring and concern, that was Peggy," said former Vanier co-worker Nancy MILLER.
"She created a real feeling of nurturing and safety and a lot of the kids looked to her as a grandma," she said.
HOARE died July 5 at 76 from heart problems, leaving behind a legacy of support for London's needy children.
Her distinguished career began in the early 1970s, when HOARE went back to school for Fanshawe College's child and youth worker program at age 42.
The Toronto native, who met and married her best friend, Don, in 1951, had two grown children, Stephen and Cathy, and longed to work with youngsters.
"She was bored and really loved children," daughter Cathy ADAM/ADAMS said. "She really should have had 10 kids."
HOARE completed the program in 1973 without having missed a single class and was hired at Vanier, where she pioneered a home treatment program.
The dedicated employee brought troubled kids into her home until they were adopted, MILLER said.
"She was so good to them," her daughter said. "Everybody was treated like family."
HOARE, a senior staff member who was looked up to by younger employees for her "quiet, calming influence," later became a child and youth counsellor, a position she held for 19 years.
During her time at Vanier, HOARE also led art therapy sessions and was known to bring in homemade treats for staff and children.
The grandmother-like figure made a lasting impression on the kids she worked with, some of whom remembered her decades after their experiences at Vanier.
"She only retired because she had to," MILLER said of HOARE's retirement at age 65 in 1994.
Even after she left the agency, HOARE, an avid knitter, continued to visit, often bringing in knitted mittens and socks for needy kids.
"Even after she left, she was still here," MILLER said. "We considered her an honorary lifetime volunteer."

Reginald 'Red' HORNER, National Hockey League Hockey Player: The bad-boy captain of the prewar Toronto Maple Leafs shared the ice with such legends of defence as 'King' CLANCY and established a record for penalties that stood for 20 years
By James CHRISTIE, Friday, April 29, 2005, Page S7
The night of December 13, 1933, was a landmark night in the history of the National Hockey League. The career of Toronto Maple Leaf Irwin (Ace) BAILEY was ended with a life-threatening head injury suffered when he crashed to the ice following a hard check by Boston Bruins' Eddie SHORE.
What is not always mentioned is the fact that Mr. BAILEY was not the only man carried off the ice at Boston Garden that night. He had an avenger, a flame-haired bad boy named "Red" HORNER, the prototype of hockey's "policeman."
Red HORNER was the oldest Toronto Maple Leaf captain and oldest living member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Red HORNER embodied Toronto Maple Leaf history. He was on the ice for the very first shift played at Maple Leaf Gardens in 1931 and was involved in ceremonies at the closing of the Gardens on February 13, 1999.
On the dangerous night in Boston Garden, Mr. BAILEY recalled in a 1985 interview with The Globe and Mail's Paul PATTON that "SHORE took my feet from under me. I wasn't facing him and when I fell, my head hit the ice and I went into convulsions.
"SHORE was standing over at the other side of the rink when Red went over and said, 'Put up your hands, I'm going to hit you.' And HORNER did. One punch was all he needed. The boys told me afterwards that they carried SHORE out feet first, just moments after they carried me out, and they needed seven stitches to sew him up."
While Ace BAILEY was still unconscious and recovering from surgery done at Boston City Hospital to relieve pressure on his brain, "My dad went to Boston and he checked into the Copley Plaza hotel because he knew that was where Conn SMYTHE (the Leaf manager) was staying. He had a.45 revolver with him and wanted to know where he could find SHORE. SMYTHE said, 'Let's go up to my room and have a chat.' SMYTHE got two of the hotel policemen to come up, and they must have slipped dad a couple of mickeys. SMYTHE put him on the train back to Toronto and Dad didn't wake up until he was back in Canada. Two weeks later, he got his gun back through the mail."
Fortunately, Red HORNER was all the avenger the Toronto Maple Leafs needed most nights during his 12-year career. Hockey feuds were serious matters and Mr. HORNER was hockey's version of the blunt instrument.
"Red" HORNER was born in a small rural community near Brantford, Ontario He was the son of a farmer. The HORNER family moved first to Ancaster, where he started school, then to Hamilton and eventually to Toronto. He was playing bantam hockey with North Toronto by his early teens, living with his half-brother who was a grocer, and his wife.
He was one of 72 players trying out for Frank SELKE's Marlboro juniors in 1926 and although young Red did not distinguish himself in that first practice, Mr. SELKE felt that he would be as patient as possible with him. The fact that Red was Mr. SELKE's grocery boy didn't hurt his chances.
Leafs founder Conn SMYTHE was a builder and well acquainted with Mr. SELKE, who was business manager of the electrical union. Mr. SELKE's autobiography recounts how Mr. SMYTHE was tiring of his Leafs being manhandled by the likes of the Montreal Maroons but couldn't pry any strong physical talents away from other National Hockey League teams.
Mr. SELKE's suggested solution was for Mr. SMYTHE to unload his vulnerable veterans and fill the lineup with robust kids from the Marlboros. Red HORNER made his National Hockey League debut on Saturday, December 22, 1928. He had already played a Friday night game with the Marlboro juniors and a Saturday afternoon match with a senior team when he was informed he'd be suiting up as a Toronto Maple Leaf that night at Arena Gardens on Mutual Street, the predecessor of Maple Leaf Gardens.
In a 2003 interview with the Internet site legendsofhockey.net, he recalled his debut: "He said, 'I'll tell ya what I'm gonna do. I'll pay you $2,500 for the balance of the season.' I thought about it and it sounded pretty good because I was making $25 a week as a clerk at the Standard Stock Exchange.
"I said, 'Well Mr. SMYTHE, I've only seen two pro games in my life before, I don't know any of your players, I haven't a car but if you'd like to pick me up and take me down tonight, I'll take you and introduce you to my mother and father.'
"He said, 'That's a deal,' and we shook hands on it. No signing or anything, just a handshake."
He was not a graceful skater but could move the puck quickly and possessed a gift for concentration under pressure. He could make a pinpoint pass while two forecheckers were zeroing in on him.
His tough, physical style of play earned him the league leadership in penalty minutes for eight of his 12 National Hockey League seasons. He set a record for penalties that lasted 20 years.
Mr. SMYTHE dispatched Mr. HORNER to a summer camp to work out and to put on weight in the summer of 1931. He was trained by Olympic pole-vaulter Ed ARCHIBALD. By the end of the summer, Mr. HORNER had gone from a soft 180 pounds to a solid 190.
In 1932, he was on a Stanley Cup winner with Toronto. For seven of his seasons, he played alongside another Toronto legend on defence, Francis Michael (King) CLANCY. Mr. HORNER played his entire career with the Maple Leafs and served as team captain from 1938 until his retirement in 1940. In 490 regular season games, he scored 42 goals and added 110 assists for 152 points. But his scoring statistics pale beside the fact he collected 1,264 penalty minutes during that time. He once collected 17 penalty minutes in the first 20-minute period of a game.
The scuffles didn't end when he retired as a player. Mr. HORNER, like Mr. CLANCY, turned to officiating and was an National Hockey League linesman for two seasons. On January 11, 1943, at Maple Leaf Gardens, he was working a game between the Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings when Detroit manager Jack ADAM/ADAMS berated him, alleging he had missed an icing call. Later in the game, Mr. HORNER lined up for a faceoff near the Detroit bench and Mr. ADAM/ADAMS reached out and shoved him, claiming he was blocking the view. Mr. HORNER swung around with an elbow that grazed his chin. Mr. ADAM/ADAMS shoved him again. Detroit player Syd ABEL took a swing at Mr. HORNER, who shoved Mr. ADAM/ADAMS hard before referee Bill CHADWICK stepped in.
Mr. HORNER went on to a business career managing North American Coal in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was the majority owner.
George Reginald (Red) HORNER was born in Lynden, Ontario, on May 28, 1909. He died in Toronto on April 27, 2005. He was 95. He was predeceased by his wife.

Jimmy LOGAN
By Carole Anne LOGAN, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page A12
Veteran, father, friend. Born August 20, 1925, in Glasgow, Scotland. Died April 16, in Burlington, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged Jimmy LOGAN was the eldest of five children of Martha and James LOGAN. He learned to speak up and speak often to be heard in that boisterous family. His father's position as a printer at Blackie and Sons sheltered them from the worst of the Depression. After school, Jimmy played a bugle with the Boys Brigade, worked as the milkman's assistant, and played football.
In 1939, as the Second World War began, Jimmy started in the shipyards as the apprentice of still another Jimmy -- Jimmy ADAM/ADAMS, who remained a lifelong friend. British shipyard workers were exempt from conscription but in defiance of that, he quit his apprenticeship when he turned 18 so he could join the Royal Engineers. His field company landed June 8, 1944, on Sword Beach near Ouistreham, France.
After Sapper LOGAN's part in Hitler's downfall, he returned to the shipyards, to the semi-professional football leagues and to the dancehalls. At the F and F (Fyfe and Fyfe) Dancehall, he met Anne McKAY. She was impressed by his light footwork, good manners and black wavy hair.
Friends suggested going to Canada and Jimmy was game for a new adventure. The group disembarked at Montreal in November, 1952, and travelled to Toronto. They found a rooming house on Logan Avenue and thought it a good omen. The landlady, Lottie, mothered her Scottish lads while they settled in. "Look," his friend Jim CAMERON said one day, "I've bought us all coffee shirts!" "T-shirts," corrected Lottie. "That disnae make ony sense," came the confused reply. "Everyone here drinks coffee."
Jimmy chose to stay. He proposed to Anne McKAY by letter and sent the money for an engagement ring. Anne arrived, accompanied by Jimmy ADAM/ADAMS' wife Mattie, a trousseau and a white wedding gown purchased in Glasgow after lengthy consultations between mothers, daughters and cousins. They married in St. Paul's Presbyterian in Hamilton before a surprisingly large number of Friends. Surprising unless you knew how easily Jimmy made Friends; he had invited everyone he knew.
They bought a house in Burlington that he stubbornly kept for 44 years. Jimmy worked in the engineering shop at International Harvester where his talents as a Clydebank sheet metal journeyman served well on the engineering team, which hand-built prototypes. He remained a strong supporter of the unions, acted as shop steward in the United Steelworkers local 2868.
Jimmy never lost his Maryhill accent. Canadians, even those who knew him well, can confirm that Jimmy could be indecipherable. Maddeningly, he also liked to talk. Anne and their daughter Carole Anne would roll their eyes and translate as needed. To Jimmy's closest Friends, translation was not necessary. They golfed, joked, and argued about politics and sports. In lieu of the families left in Scotland, they developed family-like connections that continue still. All their children were Canadian and being proud of his Canadian citizenship was not a conflict with Jimmy's pride at also being Scottish.
Retirement was a chance to golf and travel with Anne and Friends. He proudly helped raise his grand_son James. He loved that extended family of cousins and adopted cousins, especially the children since he could tell them the craziest stories and they actually listened! He beat cancer and heart attacks, struggled with arthritis but always kept talking. A heart attack unexpectedly took him. He had no time for last words, but Jimmy might have quoted his favourite poet, Robert Burns: It's coming yet, for a' that / That man to man, the warld o'er / Shall brothers be for a' that. It was his life motto.
Carole Anne is Jimmy's daughter.

Paul ROAZEN, Scholar And Writer: (1936-2005)
York University professor chronicled the development of psychoanalysis and explored Sigmund Freud's complex relationships with Friends, family and followers
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 8, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Of the many accomplishments that could be attributed to York University professor Paul ROAZEN, perhaps the most lasting may be that he created a field of study that had never existed meta-psychotherapy.
Over the course of a long and extraordinarily productive career, the teacher of social and political science deconstructed the many different relationships that existed within the world of psychotherapy, particularly those that wove in and around its iconic founder, Sigmund Freud.
"He was not involved in psychotherapy itself, but he was involved in the analysis of psychoanalysis," says Cyril GREENLAND, a former professor of social work at McMaster University and a friend of Dr. ROAZEN.
The bedrock of his work were lengthy interviews that Dr. ROAZEN conducted in the early 1960s with 70 of Freud's patients and colleagues -- interviews that uncovered quirks and diversions in the techniques that eventually turned into psychoanalytic orthodoxy. Among the striking findings was the revelation that the classic position of a psychoanalyst and his patient -- patient verbalizing on couch, doctor sitting behind him silently taking notes -- wasn't how the process originally began.
Freud was initially quite chatty and spoke directly to his patients until surgery for mouth-and-throat cancer made him so self-conscious about his appearance that he preferred to interview without being seen.
Dr. ROAZEN also revealed that Freud had broken what might be thought of as the sacrosanct boundary between patient and parent by psychoanalyzing his daughter Anna. His deconstruction of Freud and his methods infuriated the psychoanalytic community in general and Anna FREUD in particular. So much so that she subsequently wrote in a letter: "Everything Paul ROAZEN writes is a menace." But illustrative of how much Dr. ROAZEN saw his duty to speak the truth as he saw it, the remark was something he quoted proudly.
Another classic among his other 22 books was Brother Animal, in which Dr. ROAZEN (pronounced Roe-zuhn) unravelled the relationship between Freud and Viktor TAUSK -- a student who became a brilliant but troubled colleague, was the lover of one early woman psychiatrist and the patient of another, and eventually committed suicide. A reviewer in The New York Times called the book "an altogether compelling excursion into psychoanalytic history that develops like an intellectual mystery story."
Following in the path of Freud, who co-wrote a psychoanalytic history of Woodrow Wilson, Dr. ROAZEN published in 1998 a study of Mackenzie KING, Canada's King: An Essay in Political Psychology. In 1916, after King fell into a deep depression, he went to Johns Hopkins University for treatment by a psychiatrist. Using notes and letters in the Johns Hopkins archives, Dr. ROAZEN produced a vivid picture of a man so mentally disturbed he believed other people were influencing him through electrical currents and, conversely, that he could influence them back with currents he generated himself.
In a review of the book, Paul ADAM/ADAMS, a former Globe and Mail Middle East correspondent, wrote that Dr. ROAZEN's "cautious, knowledgeable and sympathetic approach cuts quite a contrast to the half-baked psychologizing we read all the time about everyone from Saddam Hussein to Lucien Bouchard."
Part of what ensured Dr. ROAZEN's even-handedness was his phenomenal memory for detail -- particularly when it came to Freud.
"If you would ask him what Freud did on September 2, 1916, he would ask back, 'In the morning or afternoon?' -- that's how detailed his memory was," recounts Hans MOHR, a friend of 40 years and a former colleague of Dr. ROAZEN's at York.
But, like the subject matter he pursued, it was difficult to encapsulate Dr. ROAZEN in a single frame.
He was born in Massachusetts and attended Harvard University, where he received his doctorate in 1965. He soon joined the faculty and stayed until 1971, when he moved to Toronto's York University as part of a stream of new professors joining a quickly growing institution full of multi-disciplinary energy. "His persona was his work; his life was his work," his son Jules said about his father's central passion.
As a teacher, Dr. ROAZEN was, in equal parts, brilliant, daunting and acidulously dismissive. While open to students on many levels, "Paul often overwhelmed undergraduates with the breadth and diversity of his historical allusions and references, expecting a depth and sophistication... that many graduate students do not yet possess," recalls Daniel BURSTON, a former graduate student of Dr. ROAZEN who now teaches at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
As an individual, he also was -- the word is used repeatedly by people who knew him -- irascible. "He could be very bad tempered and very demanding," says Prof. GREENLAND. "On the other hand, he could be very wise and very generous and very helpful. On any given day, it was difficult to predict which Paul ROAZEN you would get."
Author John Robert COLOMBO, who was a friend, recounts attending a presentation by a graduate student to a small group of people where Dr. ROAZEN exploded because "it was not up to the master's level, and, oh, it was appalling. He later followed and phoned everyone and didn't apologize but gave reason for his attack, as though there was no moral culpability there."
Nonetheless, the energy that he put into analyzing psychoanalysis produced works so instructive both to the therapy community and to those wishing to understand the effect of the psychotherapy world view on the intellectual zeitgeist of the 20th century that any personal flaws were overlooked by those who came after.
"I think Paul's greatest contribution to psychotherapy was his willingness to confront legends and, in the process, to reveal truth," said Deirdre Bair, the British author of a much-praised biography of psychotherapist Carl Jung. "He did not hesitate to go where angels fear to tread and, in the process, he trampled... many iconic images.
"His gift to the discipline was to seek out the truth, no matter how unpleasant it might have been for the entrenched 'authorities' to read it," says Ms. Bair, who had been encouraged by Dr. ROAZEN to write the Jung book.
"Whether they know it or not, everyone working in this field today is directly or indirectly in his debt," says Prof. BURSTON.
After taking early retirement from York, Dr. ROAZEN moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts., and continued writing. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Canada in 1993 and made an honorary member of the American Psychoanalytic Association in 2004.
Paul ROAZEN was born in Boston in 1936. He died of complications from Crohn's disease at his home in Cambridge on November 3. He was 69. He leaves his sons Daniel HELLER- ROAZEN, a professor of comparative literature at Princeton University, and Jules ROAZEN, a banker in New York; a brother, Dr. Bernard ROAZEN, of San Francisco; and a sister, Sheila WEISS, of Westport, Connecticut.
His marriage to Deborah HELLER, now a professor of English at York University, ended in divorce.

Ralph GORDON, Air Force Brigadier-General (1917-2005)
As a 28-year-old, he commanded a Second World War Royal Canadian Air Force supply squadron under monsoon conditions in the Far East and went on to become a high-ranking officer
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 29, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Fighting the Japanese in the Far East during the Second World was one thing but fighting monsoons at the same time was quite another. When heavy rainfall struck in June of 1945, Ralph GORDON, the 28-year-old commanding officer of the Royal Canadian Air Force's 436 Squadron, knew he had a problem.
Not only did his squadron have to supply the British Army with fuel, food, medical supplies, cargo and men in its struggle to dislodge the Japanese from Burma, but it had to fly around the clock in a region that experienced about as much rain in one month as Vancouver received in a whole year.
Five months earlier, the newly-formed squadron had moved to Kangla, in India's Imphal Valley, to support Field Marshal Sir William Slim and his 14th Army. With Mr. GORDON commanding hundreds of pilots, navigators, ground crew, cooks and other tradesmen, the squadron shared in the fall of Mandalay and Rangoon but found the monsoon to be as daunting an enemy as the Japanese.
That June, meteorologists recorded a rainfall of 47 inches. According to Canucks Unlimited, a history of the squadron, "only the most limited of radio facilities were available and forecasting services just did not exist. Each airman was on his own and could count on little practical help."
Instead, Mr. GORDON, then a wing commander, came up with the idea of using one aircraft at a time, in rotation, to go into the air and report on meteorological conditions in a kind of informal weather network he dubbed "Watchbird." In this way, the squadron beat the monsoon and flew 1,000 hours in the "wettest and most difficult base in all of India and Burma." It was also the only air force unit that made it through the monsoon without casualties.
The heavy rain meant Mr. GORDON and his men continually improvised. "No one had operated under monsoon conditions before," he once recounted. "We didn't have proper equipment for changing engines on aircraft, or for doing laundry, or for lighting lamps, so we had to scrounge a lot.
"The technicians cut bamboo and made tripods and chain blocks to lift engines out of aircraft. They had no hangars and had to work in the rain. The runways were simply made of heavy tar paper, with steel mesh laid over them, so when it rained, the runway floated on the water. You got water over the windshield, and everywhere, when you took off.
"The Royal Canadian Air Force sent us stoves that burned wood to cook with [but] there was no wood to burn because bamboo is full of water. So we had to design stoves that burned aviation fuel."
Mr. GORDON's methods earned the respect of former airframe mechanic Art ADAM/ADAMS of Hamilton, Ontario "We all thought he was a tremendous commanding officer."
Mr. ADAM/ADAMS, currently the squadron's honorary colonel, said Mr. GORDON flouted tradition and allowed officers and men to eat together, which, in the stuffy view of neighbouring Royal Air Force squadrons, violated protocol.
"He said, 'If our squadron is going to work together and fly together, then by God, we will eat together!' [That is] one of the reasons we had such a happy and determined squadron."
Art IRWIN of Ottawa also admired his commanding officer's can-do ability. "We had a high disability rate from dysentery and other gastric disturbances, which had to do with a lack of hygiene. One of the first things he did was remove the native cooks as food handlers and have only Canadians working [in the kitchen]. His move quickly reduced our [health] problems. That was a big, big step."
For all his success, being the boss was a lonely job, Mr. GORDON told his granddaughter Heather GORDON in 1996. Commanding men in battle meant he dealt with his responsibilities in isolation from everyone else. "You couldn't be Friends and still be their boss at the same time," he said. "You knew that what you did impacted all those who served under you."
For the leadership he displayed during the nine months he commanded 436 Squadron, along with the operational missions he flew with 415 Squadron over Europe in 1944, Mr. GORDON was awarded the Distinguished Service Order on January 15, 1946. Three months earlier, he had been awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for "showing outstanding devotion to duty and efficiency. Most of [his] flights have been in unarmed aircraft across mountainous jungle country within range of enemy fighters. His operational flying has always been of the highest standard."
Mr. GORDON had also been mentioned in dispatches on June 14, Ralph GORDON grew up in Bobcaygeon, in Ontario's Kawartha Lakes cottage region, where his father Charles owned a boating business. After joining the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1939, he was awarded his pilot's wings in June, 1940. Two years of instructing followed before he went to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, to fly Canso maritime patrol aircraft for No. 162 (Bomber/Reconnaissance) Squadron. In May, 1944, he was sent to Britain to fly Wellington bombers against enemy shipping.
After the war, Mr. GORDON remained in the Royal Canadian Air Force and experienced first its reduction and then its dramatic Cold War expansion. By the end of the 1950s, the Royal Canadian Air Force flew 2,000 aircraft and counted 55,000 men and woman among its ranks. From 1961-65, as a group captain, he commanded Royal Canadian Air Force Station Greenwood, Nova Scotia, a key Maritime Air Command base. In August of 1965, he was promoted air commodore and given command of Maritime Air Command, making him responsible for the security of both East and West Coasts. As it turned out, he was its last commander.
In January of 1966, Maritime Air Command was amalgamated into the new Maritime Command as part of the integration of the army, navy and air force, a scheme that caused enormous controversy. When four senior admirals resigned in protest, Mr. GORDON found himself in temporary command, on July 19, 1966, of Maritime Command, which included the Atlantic fleet and Royal Canadian Air Force maritime units. His command lasted all of eight hours. The sight of Mr. GORDON's personal Royal Canadian Air Force flag flying at the heart of the navy's headquarters in Halifax caused one salty chief petty officer to growl, "It's a disgrace!"
During his career, Mr. GORDON spent more than 3,000 hours flying about 25 different types of aircraft. After retiring as a brigadier-general in 1968, he worked for the federal public service.
Ralph Alan GORDON was born on November 16, 1917, in Toronto. He died of cancer on November 8, in Ottawa. He was 87. He leaves his sons, Larry and Bruce, and his companion, Nancy GUTHRIE. He was predeceased by his wife Esther.

'Gone where?' Gone from my sight, that is all. The loss of sight is in me, not in her, and just at that moment when someone says she is gone, there are others watching for her coming. Other voices take up the glad shout, 'Here she comes!'
