GALLIE, Alan Edward
Alan Edward GALLIE (known to everyone as 'Doc') was born Feb 13, 1915 in Toronto, Ontario and died peacefully on August 6, 2005. Doc will be best remembered for his remarkable interest in everything and everyone around him, and his extraordinary ability to make Friends. Doc, a born engineer and natural outdoorsman, worked for Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. for 42 years in numerous mining camps throughout Northern Ontario and Manitoba. In 1939 he married his high school sweetheart Mary MITCHELL and took her to northern Manitoba where they spent their first winter in a tent at 40 below, to the horror of their parents and delight of themselves. As mine manager at Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Doc orchestrated the move of an entire town - buildings, people, dogs and all - 147 miles over a winter road from Sherridon to a new mine site at Lynn Lake. He never hesitated to get his hands dirty or to see things done right. Later, Doc became Vice President of Sales and travelled around the world selling Sherritt's nickel. When he retired, he and Mary lived full-time at the 'Saltbox' near Claremont, Ontario just outside Toronto. His passions were fly-fishing at Glenmajor, bird-watching and gardening. He energetically cared for future generations, with a deep involvement in the Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation scholarship program for engineering students, the Daisy Fund for children seeking treatment for retinoblastoma, and the pursuit of justice, honesty and common sense. Throughout it all, Doc built innumerable Friendships, born of a wonderful confidence, deep interest in and respect for others. Doc lived at his beloved Saltbox until the last day of his life. He died in his daughter Brenda's house in Toronto, surrounded by his family, enquiring after the interesting details of their lives until the end. Doc, son of William Edward GALLIE and Janet Louise (HART) GALLIE, is predeceased by his wife Mary Frances (MITCHELL,) and survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD (Gary GILLIES), Brenda GALLIE (Michael JEWETT), and Ann GALLIE (Dougal McCREATH;) by his grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD, and Frances and Gordon JEWETT; and by his nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY, Jane GALLIE, Louise GALLIE and Ian GALLIE.

Alan (Doc) GALLIE, Northern Adventurer 1915-2005
Mining engineer made history by moving an entire town across 245 kilometres of frozen muskeg in northern Manitoba
By Michael VALPY, Wednesday, August 10, 2005, Page S6
Alan Edward (Doc) GALLIE was a Canadian mining engineer of pioneer legend, a dashing adventurer of the North, a passionate outdoorsman and an engaging charmer in his youth who could roller-skate his way into the hearts of beautiful young women.
He made history by moving an entire town over 245 kilometres of frozen muskeg in northern Manitoba. He revelled in working beside men named Half-Ear Andy, Rubbernose Ragolski, Bonehead Joe and Alphabet Smith.
He snow-shoed through a valley at night pursued by wolves ("The fastest I ever snow-shoed," he later told his daughters), walked away more than once from plane crashes in the wilderness and on one occasion trekked alone into the bush to bring out a deranged, homicidal prospector.
In the latter part of his 42-year career with Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. -- now Sherritt International -- he was vice-president of marketing, travelling the world to sell Canadian nickel.
Doc GALLIE was a tall, fit man -- 6-foot-4 -- with enormous self-confidence who made Friends wherever he went. He had a sunny view of life. His maxim was that he wanted the world to be nice. He was a doer, a builder who hated merely watching things happen.
Throughout his professional life, he was engaged in programs awarding bursaries and scholarships to Canadian engineering students and finding jobs for them at home when they graduated so that they would not leave the country. He did not like old people, his family said of him. He wanted to be around the young.
Mr. GALLIE acquired the nickname of Doc as a student at Upper Canada College when one of the masters asked him if he was the son of Toronto's internationally renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. William GALLIE. Young Alan GALLIE said yes, and he was known as Doc ever after.
While he was still at Upper Canada College, his mother arranged a date for him for a school dance with the daughter of one of her Friends. Doc GALLIE roller-skated over to the girl's house, knocked on the door, was admitted into the front hall and, as he later said, down the stairs to meet him came the most beautiful creature he'd ever seen -- Mary MITCHELL.
Doc GALLIE decided to become a mining engineer after hearing tales of the Northern Ontario mining town of Cobalt told over lunch one day by a medical colleague of his father's who practised in the community.
As a student at University of Toronto, one of his engineering professors, H.E.T. HAULTAIN, asked the young man to be his assistant on a trip to Africa in 1936. Prof. HAULTAIN lectured him each morning on the 21-day ocean crossing so that he wouldn't fall behind in his studies, then took him to some of the continent's great mines.
In Bulawayo, Rhodesia -- now Zimbabwe -- he took time off to go roller-skating in a local rink, collided with a pretty girl, knocked her down, helped her up and dated her.
Back home, after graduating with honours in 1938, he started work with Sherritt in northern Manitoba and shortly thereafter telephoned Mary MITCHELL in Toronto to ask if she would be ready to marry him in two weeks. Mary said yes, while her mother, overhearing the conversation, said no.
They married in the chapel of Bishop Strachan School and she became his life's closest companion, fellow adventurer and equally passionate aficionado of the outdoors.
After a honeymoon in New York and holiday celebrations at home for Christmas, Mary accompanied her new husband into the bush where their first home was a mine-office tent shared with the company geologists with the new Mrs. GALLIE assigned the job of camp radio operator.
That first winter of their marriage, the temperature dropped more than once to 40 below. "When our Samoyed dog climbed into bed with us at 3 in the morning, I knew it was time to put more wood in the stove," Mr. GALLIE later wrote.
From Manitoba, Mr. GALLIE was sent in 1941 to manage an iron mine at Josephine, near Wawa, Ontario The mine was under a lake and, in 1946, the lake bed unexpectedly let go and flooded the mine. Mr. GALLIE wrote his engineering master's thesis on why it happened.
In 1947 -- now with two young daughters, Joan and Brenda -- he was reassigned to northern Manitoba, and five years later supervised the unprecedented feat of closing down an exhausted mine, in Sherridon, and moving the equipment and the entire town site 245 kilometres north over winter roads to a new ore body at Lynn Lake (where a third daughter, Ann, was born).
Mr. GALLIE was made assistant to the president of Sherritt Gordon in 1958, a job he said neither he nor the president felt had any purpose.
At that time, "no one [in the company] was really doing anything about selling the product," Mr. GALLIE noted. All the company's contracts were with U.S. steel companies and the U.S. government, and they were coming to an end.
So Mr. GALLIE basically invented a job for himself as vice-president of sales and spent the next two decades selling the company's output around the world.
At home in Canada, Alan and Mary GALLIE indulged in their hearts' passions of canoeing, bird watching, fishing and the garden of the 150-year-old Cape Cod saltbox home they bought at Claremont, northeast of Toronto. When Mrs. GALLIE died in 1998, Mr. GALLIE sold their Toronto home and moved permanently to "The Saltbox," close to the Glenmajor fishing camp he belonged to and loved.
He lived an active life at The Saltbox until a few days before his death.
He was 90 when he died, surrounded by family members in the home of his daughter, oncologist Dr. Brenda GALLIE. He'd had a martini a few hours earlier, made jokes and chatted with his family about what they were doing. He said he was looking forward to death as his next adventure.
Alan Edward (Doc) GALLIE was born on February 13, 1915, in Toronto. He died of lung cancer on August 6 in Toronto following a short illness. He was 90. He is survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD and Brenda and Ann GALLIE, grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD and Frances and Gordon JEWETT, and nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY and Jane, Louise and Ian GALLIE. Funeral service is 2 p.m. today at Grace Church-on-the-Hill, Toronto.

Margaret Ann Dixon JEWISON " Dixie"
By Nalini STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Tuesday, June 7, 2005, Page A20
Wife, mother, friend. Born November 25, 1930, in Toronto. Died November 26, 2004, of lung cancer, in Orangeville, Ontario, aged Dixie JEWISON could have had a career as a sculptor, interior designer, events manager or real-estate tycoon. She chose, instead, the identity of Mrs. Norman JEWISON, mother of Kevin, Michael and Jennifer, and she wore that identity as a badge of honour.
A graduate of Branksome Hall and the Ontario College of Art, Dixie is remembered by Branksome Friends Lou DRYDEN and Beverley ROCKETT as one of the most beautiful, and fun-loving women of her generation.
Dixie lived in Toronto's Beaches neighbourhood and Lou was often invited for weekends. During the day, they sat on the sand in front of the Balmy Beach Canoe Club and played bridge. At night, they went to dances and movies at the Canoe Club where Dixie was always the centre of attention because of her beauty and high spirits. While studying sculpture at Ontario College of Art, Dixie became a photographer's model and her face was on billboards across Toronto as the Black Cat cigarette girl.
Then Norman JEWISON arrived in her life. They were married in 1953 and the young wife devoted her energies to making a home for her family. As her husband became more successful, there were homes in many countries and Dixie bought these homes, decorated them, and filled them with Friends. Norman often jokes that he made more money from Dixie's real-estate investments in New York and Malibu than he did from his movies. She also set up temporary homes for her family at film sets around the world from Positano to Fort Chaffee, Munich to Tel Aviv. Her houses were open to Friends; she was one of the most generous people I knew.
She was Canada's unofficial ambassador in Los Angeles and London where talented Canadians made important contacts at her legendary parties. At Canada Day celebrations on the beach in Malibu, actors dressed as Mounties would greet the stars. Rod Steiger, Henry Mancini, Rock Hudson and Whoopi Goldberg were a few of her favourite guests.
In 1967, Dixie established the first childcare centre -- The Neighbours of Watts -- in south central Los Angeles with two of her closest Friends. Dixie was the founding vice-president and raised huge amounts of money by involving Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. Once the organization got under way, Dixie insisted that the leadership be turned over, from celebrity wives to the residents of Watts. Dixie was very proud of her role in The Neighbours of Watts -- a centre that continues to thrive.
The JEWISONs moved back to Canada in 1978 after more than 20 years abroad. Dixie now put her energy into promoting Canada's film industry. She had parties for the Toronto International Film Festival and later the Canadian Film Centre. She started an annual barbecue at her farm that is now held at the Canadian Film Centre because it became too large. Last year, 3,000 Canadian and international filmmakers and actors networked at the barbecue that Dixie started.
Dixie JEWISON had old-fashioned Canadian values. She was down-to-earth, loyal, unpretentious and never complained. In the last five years of her life she showed tremendous courage as she was diagnosed first with lung cancer and then throat cancer. She couldn't eat in the last year-and-a-half of her life. However, she always insisted she was "just fine" even as her voice became more and more hoarse and her breathing more and more laboured.
Dixie met all the stars of this world but she remained unaffected by them. Her greatest joy was her family, her country and her lifelong Friends. We miss her.
Nalini STEWARD/STEWART/STUART is a friend and neighbour of Dixie JEWISON.

Hart WHEELER
By Murray GINSBERG, Monday, December 5, 2005, Page A24
Musician, friend, photographer, recording technician. Born December 22, 1921, in Toronto. Died June 10 in Guelph, Ontario, of prostate cancer, aged 83.
Hart WHEELER was a dear friend, and one of the most intelligent individuals I ever knew. He also went out of his way so many times to help others.
Hart worked professionally as a jazz saxophonist from the age of 18 and was truly one of a kind: Talent oozed from every pore. Not only was he an accomplished musician, he was also an accomplished photographer as well as an amazing recording technician who carried his equipment wherever he went.
Quite often we would meet at my apartment for lunch or dinner. With Friends, mostly musicians, seated around the table, the stories would fly from everyone's lips while Hart would have his microphone turned on, catching every snippet of conversation "for posterity," he would say.
And each story always drew a chorus of laughs only to be topped by another story and more laughs. Those were wonderful times and I always knew that without Hart present, those parties would not have been quite the same.
He often told a charming story about how he got into music as a youth in Toronto. He said he was 15 years old and his rich aunt recognized some sort of latent talent in him because he was playing bones and harmonica in public school. So she went to Whaley Royce, the music store on Yonge Street, and bought a clarinet. That decision, he said, affected his whole life.
At the same time, he said he discovered Benny Goodman. The first thing he wanted to do was play Benny Goodman solos. The clarinet had come with ten lessons and the teacher showed him where to put his fingers. From then on, he said he got Benny Goodman records and learned Benny Goodman solos by himself. And that was how he got started.
During the Second World War, Hart served in the Royal Canadian Air Force band. After the war, he became a very busy musician. Several times he guested for director Norman JEWISON on his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television series The Denny Vaughan Show. He also performed with the big bands of Bobby Gimby, Ellis McLintock, Art Hallman and Mart Kenney, as well as Jim Galloway's Wee Big Band and the Canadian Tribute to Glenn Miller.
In the Miller band, Hart played and sang as a featured performer. Whenever he sang songs such as Chattanooga Choo Choo and I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, his shining personality lit up the entire ballroom.
One of his greatest moments came on May 15, 1953, when he played alongside jazz giants DIzzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus and Max Roach in the legendary Massey Hall jazz concert when these musicians played together for the only time in their lives.
Hart's high level of intelligence was evident when I once asked him why he loved to play. His answer was direct and to the point: "It's tied up with emotion; it's tied up with ego; it's an artistic endeavour where your output is immediate. A lot of artistic output can take years to realize, or weeks or days, depending on what the finished product is -- a photograph, a painting, a novel or a motion picture. None are as immediate as music.
"When you play an instrument, it's not just your eye and your hand painting a picture. It's the immediate result that pleases the senses. It's a continuing, revolving beautiful experience."
Hart is survived by sons Hartland, Ted and Stacey, their wives and children. And sadly missed by his cherished cousin, Denna BENN.
Murray is Hart's friend.
