Remembering Stratford's founder
Canadian Press, Tuesday, March 15, 2005 Page R4
Stratford, Ontario -- Joyful recollections shared the stage with tearful, dramatic moments at Stratford Festival's memorial for its founder, Tom PATTERSON.
"He changed the cultural landscape of this country and was a man who made Canada a better place to be," the festival's artistic director, Richard MONETTE, told the audience of about 900 at a service on the weekend in the Festival Theatre in Stratford, Ontario
PATTERSON, a Stratford native, died at 84 in Toronto on February 23, after a long battle with illness.
In 1951, PATTERSON, a 30-year-old journalist and Second World War veteran, began to pursue his long-held vision of establishing a theatre festival in Stratford that would present the classic works of William Shakespeare.
To research his project, he garnered a $125 grant from Stratford's city council -- "a shrewd investment," MONETTE quipped -- and travelled to New York in a futile attempt to meet the great British actor Laurence Olivier. He had better luck recruiting artistic director Tyrone Guthrie.
On July 13, 1953, the Stratford Festival premiered with a production of Richard III, starring famous British actor Alec Guinness.
From that modest start, noted the festival board's current chairperson, Tom ORR, the stage company grew to become North America's largest classical repertory theatre with four stages, 1,000 employees and a $52-million operating budget.
It generates more than $145-million in annual revenue for the festival and the local economy.
"Tom invented the festival, but he invented all of us as well. He invented us actors and the audience," actor Christopher Plummer said in a poignant salute Sunday to "that tenacious little firebrand and maker of miracles."
"Every time I walk onto this stage, every board I tread on cries out, 'Tom PATTERSON,' Plummer said.
Tim PATTERSON remembered his father as a master storyteller, a keen gardener and an accomplished chef.
"He was an eternal optimist who always saw the bright side of life," he said.
PATTERSON was named a member of the Order of Canada in 1967 and, 10 years later, was raised to the level of officer. In 1991, the festival renamed its third stage the Tom PATTERSON Theatre.

Les BARTLEY, Lacrosse Coach and Executive: 1954-2005
As the man behind the Toronto Rock, he led a neophyte team to unsuspected heights in North American professional sport
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 23, 2005, Page S6
Toronto -- Over seven seasons of operation, the Toronto Rock lacrosse club has stick-handled its way from pro-sport obscurity to achieve cult status and a blaze of success both on the floor and at the turnstiles.
Suddenly, the National Lacrosse League's Rock is chic in Hogtown, and it's all because of Les BARTLEY. As head coach and general manager, he led the team to four league championships. Of course, he did not do it alone (former Toronto Maple Leafs executive Bill WATTERS is principal owner, and minority shareholders include Tie DOMI, Brendan SHANAHAN and Bobby ORR) but, as the mastermind of the team's success, he was the iconic head and leader of the current Rock dynasty.
Given that, it's all the more surprising to learn that Mr. BARTLEY himself was an unspectacular lacrosse player. Growing up in St. Catharines, Ontario, he also played football for St. Catharines Collegiate Institute. He was a defensive end when Malcolm ALLEN met up with him and discovered him to be "exceedingly strong" physically. "When he came into a room, he had a huge presence but not because he was 6-3 and weighed 250. He was a wiry guy about 5-10, 165 pounds."
Not long after graduating from high school, Mr. BARTLEY landed a job on the General Motors' V-8 assembly line in St. Catharines. He later became a union representative for United Auto Workers, which became the Canadian Auto Workers in 1985. He was what the union calls an "in-plant elected official" for the local in St. Catharines. For 20 years, he was a key negotiator in contract talks with General Motors both at the local and national level. As it happened, one of the people who worked with him at the Canadian Auto Workers office was Mr. ALLEN, his high-school crony and friend since 1968.
"Les was a compassionate, caring person," said Mr. ALLEN, who is financial secretary for the union's local in St. Catharines. "The employees he represented in contract talks, he put them first and foremost. When it came to family, he always wanted to know how you were and how the children was doing."
It was while at Canadian Auto Workers that Mr. BARTLEY decided to coach lacrosse on the side. In 1992, he joined the Buffalo Bandits for a short unpaid stint as a scout and then took on coaching duties when the team got off to an 0-3 start. So what did he do right off the bat? Well, he merely led the Bandits to 22 consecutive wins and a league championship. He followed that with title wins in 1993 and 1996.
In 1998, professional lacrosse evolved into the National Lacrosse League with the addition of the Ontario Raiders, the first Canadian franchise. Mr. HARTLEY became coach and the team went 6-6 playing out of Hamilton's Copps Coliseum. The following season, the Raiders were shifted to Toronto to become the Rock, and that's when Mr. BARTLEY spun his magic again, spearheading the team to four league titles in five years.
He also found a measure of success elsewhere. He coached Canada to international lacrosse titles, including the Heritage Cup served as the assistant coach of the St. Catharines senior A team that won its first Minto Cup in 10 years in 2001; and led Team Canada to the 2003 world indoor title.
"He's a guy who had no history in the game coming in to coach Buffalo and then he wins all these championships and becomes one of, if not the best coach lacrosse has ever known," said Jim VELTMAN, who was captain under Mr. BARTLEY in both Buffalo and Toronto for a total of 12 seasons.
Mr. BARTLEY was a legend at evaluating and acquiring talented players. As a motivator and coach, he was known for his pre-game pep talks and for his innovation.
He pioneered the use of specialists rather than two-way offensive and defensive players in a game that is dominated by offence.
"It was Les who implemented that style of having special offensive and defensive players and other coaches started doing the same thing," said Mr. VELTMAN. "I was a multi-faceted player and he wanted me to go out the offensive door but he allowed me to run back on defence. He gave me that latitude and I appreciated that."
"We have been and will be successful because we have depth with role clarity," Mr. BARTLEY once said. "Each player buys into playing their specific role. It simplifies everything. Each guy just does his job at the best level they can." But Mr. BARTLEY wasn't just a coach who stood behind the bench. Off the floor, he held team-bonding sessions at hotels in places such as Orillia, Ontario, and he would bring in sports psychologists to help bring out the best in his players.
"Les used mental imagery and exercises a lot," said Mr. VELTMAN. "He'd take you in a high school and have you jumping 20 feet off a platform in a harness -- stuff like that. That was a way to deal with the rougher edge in a person and lacrosse player. He was very fanatical and when he spoke, he was intense and passionate but he wasn't an in-your-face coach."
At first, some team members were puzzled by the techniques but soon discovered his off-the-floor tactics contributed to the team's success. "I can see now where he was coming from with his ideas," Rock goaltender Bob WATSON told reporters after the team won this year's National Lacrosse League championship without Mr. BARTLEY behind the bench.
One way or another, he brought it all together with the result that his overall coaching record of 93-38 (.709) in the regular season and 18-4 in the playoffs remains the best of any coach in National Lacrosse League history.
Mr. BARTLEY fell ill at the end of the 2003 season and was forced to relinquish his duties, although he stayed on as vice-president. Last year, he drew on his labour-negotiating experience and set aside his illness to coax the National Lacrosse League and its players' association to agree on a new three-year collective bargaining agreement at a time when the players had threatened to go on strike. As it turned out, he was a voice of reason when one was most needed.
"The players hold him in such high regard that his presence at the bargaining table elevated the level of trust in the process," National Lacrosse League commissioner Jim JENNINGS said.
In recognition, on May 9, the league named him executive of the year and renamed its coach-of-the-year award the Les Bartley Trophy.
On May 14, just before the Rock won its fifth league championship against the Arizona Sting in front of a crowd of 19,432, Mr. BARTLEY's story was told in a three-minute video that earned a standing ovation.
Les BARTLEY was born on March 11, 1954, in St. Catharines, Ontario He died there on May 15, 2005, of colon cancer. He is survived by his wife, Gloria, and children Matt and Laura. A private family service was held on May 16.

Gus BODNAR, Athlete, Coach And Salesman 1923-2005
In 1943, the handsome and 'dimpled darling' of the Maple Leafs was the quickest, slickest thing on skates when he set an National Hockey League record for the fastest goal scored by a rookie
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 9, 2005, Page S9
Vancouver -- On October 30, 1943, Ontario Premier George DREW stepped to centre ice at Maple Leaf Gardens to drop the puck for a ceremonial face-off. The Toronto Maple Leafs had several rookies in the lineup to start the season, as wartime enlistments thinned the ranks. Among those skating into the breach was a handsome 20-year-old centre-man named Gus BODNAR.
Fifteen seconds from the start of the game, Mr. BODNAR pounced on a loose puck in front of the New York Rangers net. He slipped the disk into the net past goalie Ken McAuley. Just like that, the young forward had etched his name in the National Hockey League record book. Nearly 62 years later, the goal still stands as the quickest scored by a player making his debut.
Mr. BODNAR added another goal and an assist in leading the Leafs to a 5-2 win in the season opener, a performance that made him an instant fan favourite in Toronto.
Mr. BODNAR was a wiry centre with a reputation as a savvy playmaker. As a 5-foot-11, 150-pound rookie, he seemed a tad fragile to survive professional hockey's take-no-prisoners combat. Indeed, he would suffer a lengthy list of wounds and ailments in his career. He exited many games on his back courtesy of stretcher bearers and more than once did so while unconscious. Yet, he always seemed to be back on the ice within a week or two.
Sportswriters praised the skills of the "dynamic midget" who was described as a "resourceful young puckster" and "one of the slickest skaters ever."
The "dimpled darling" of "cherubic countenance" received poetry and mash notes from female admirers in those years when so many men were serving overseas. Mr. BODNAR, who had been rejected for army service for heart palpitations, was said to inflict that condition on his bobby-soxer fans. One piece of doggerel that made the newspapers read: "We want Gussy, good or bad/ He's the cutest number you've ever had."
What his erstwhile suitors did not know was that he was carrying a torch for a high-school sweetheart back home in Fort William (now Thunder Bay).
August BODNARCHUK starred with the junior team in his Ontario hometown, his obvious skills catching the attention of Leafs scout Squib WALKER. In his final season of junior hockey, the centre scored 10 goals and 29 assists in just nine games with the Fort William Hurricane-Rangers in 1942-43.
The brash youngster arrived at his first Leafs training camp convinced he would soon be an National Hockey League star.
"I thought I was pretty big stuff," he later told Frank ORR of the Toronto Star. "I had my hair long and all slickered down with goo. I figured I was about the hottest rookie ever to hit the pros, even though I weighed only 145 pounds."
The rookie got a quick and unforgettable lesson in the realities of the National Hockey League when veteran, 205-pound defenceman Bucko McDonald hit him with a stiff bodycheck during a scrimmage.
"I crashed to the ice and figured every bone in my body was broken. The only reason my hair was still attached to my head was because of all the goo I had on it."
He learned to skate with his head up, alert to incoming threats.
The three-point debut was a harbinger of a stellar rookie campaign spent on the Leafs first line between veterans Bob Davidson and Lorne Carr. Mr. BODNAR's talents earned him the Calder Trophy as the National Hockey League's outstanding rookie. Montreal Canadiens goalie Bill Durnan was runner-up, while Leafs rookies Elwin Morris and Teeder Kennedy tied for third. The trophy was announced on the final day of the season. Mr. BODNAR then scored two goals and three assists in a 10-2 shelling of the Boston Bruins.
Mr. BODNAR ended his first season with 20 goals and 42 assists to set a new league mark for scoring by a rookie. The record would stand for a quarter century until beaten by Danny Grant of the Minnesota North Stars in 1968-69. Mr. BODNAR's 62-point season was the Leafs club standard for rookies until bettered by Peter Ihnacak in 1982-83.
While Mr. BODNAR scored just eight goals in his sophomore season, his three playoff goals were all game winners. The Leafs outlasted the Detroit Red Wings in seven games to claim the Stanley Cup in 1945. Mr. BODNAR would also get his name on the Cup with the Leafs in 1947.
In his years with the Leafs, he centred Mr. Carr and Sweeney Schriner to form the Bacon Line, so called because the trio "brought home the bacon." He later combined with Bud Poile and Gaye Stewart to form the Flying Forts. All three players hailed from Fort William and all were part of a blockbuster, seven-player deal with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1947.
The seasons in Chicago were highlighted by a magnificent feat coming in the third period of the final game of the 1951-52 season. Chicago's Bill Mosienko scored three goals in 21 seconds against the Rangers on March 23, 1952. Mr. BODNAR assisted on all three. The record for the three fastest goals -- coming at 6: 09, 6:20 and 6: 30 -- still stands, as does the record for three fastest assists.
"I never left centre ice," Mr. BODNAR once told Paul Patton of the Globe. "I just won the face-offs and [Mosienko] did the rest."
Mr. BODNAR was later traded to Boston, where he ended his National Hockey League career after the 1954-55 season. He had scored 142 goals with 254 assists in 667 games. Along the way, he had also gone and married that hometown sweetheart, Etta MacDONALD. They were wed in Toronto in 1948 at a ceremony which included such Leaf greats as Teeder Kennedy, Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Don and Nick Metz, and Wally Stanowski, who was best man.
The player's popularity was such that a newspaper photographer was dispatched to Wellesley Hospital in Toronto to capture Mr. BODNAR and his bride posing with their first-born child, a daughter named Bonny Lynn, in 1949. He had rushed to the hospital on a Saturday night after playing the Leafs. He then caught a train for Chicago.
A house painter in the off season during his early hockey career, Mr. BODNAR had a long career as a salesman for a steel company. He also coached the Toronto Marlboros from 1965 to 1970, winning the Memorial Cup in Centennial Year with a roster including future National Hockey League defencemen Mike Pelyk, Brian Glennie and an 18-year-old Brad Park, who would become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Mr. BODNAR's patience and willingness to adapt to his young players' needs made him an ideal junior coach. He was not a screamer, unlike so many of his peers.
He left the Marlies just before the opening of training camp in 1970, when offered the general manager and coaching posts for the Salt Lake City (Utah) Golden Eagles of the Western Hockey League. His first job as a pro coach ended after a season, as the Buffalo Sabres farm team finished with a woeful record of 18 wins, 49 losses, 5 ties.
Mr. BODNAR headed the Oshawa Generals when named Ontario Hockey League coach of the year in 1972.
He also was one of three coaches to handle Canada's junior team in 1977-78, which won a disappointing bronze medal at the World Cup. The roster included Mike Gartner, Rick Vaive and a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky.
In recent years, Mr. BODNAR often took part in charity golf tournaments. He has been inducted into sports halls of fame at Oshawa and Northwestern Ontario at Thunder Bay.
Gus BODNAR was born on April 24, 1923, at Fort William (now Thunder Bay), Ontario He died on Canada Day in Oshawa, Ontario He was 82. He is survived by his wife, Etta. He also leaves a son and four daughters.
