SCHACHTER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-07-03 published
SCHACHTER, Doctor Ricky (née KANEE) (1918-2007)
Healer, educator, innovator and advocate for the rights of women, Jews and people in need, passed away peacefully on July 1st following a prolonged illness during which she was constantly surrounded by the love of her family and Friends. We thank the staff at the Toronto Western and Baycrest Hospitals for their compassion and exemplary care. Our special thanks to the caregivers Naty, Lota, and Erwina. Doctor Ricky SCHACHTER had a long, productive and fulfilling life. Beloved wife of the late Doctor Benjamin SCHACHTER dear mother and mother-in-law of Doctor Daniel and Anya SCHACHTER, and Bonnie and Peter DRUXERMAN; adoring grandmother of Reva and Jonathan SCHACHTER, and Jessie and Cobi DRUXERMAN; and loving aunt to all of her nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her parents, Rose and Sam KANEE, and her brothers Abe, Doctor Ben, Sol, and Harry who died at an early age. Raised in Melville, Saskatchewan, Ricky was the daughter of self-educated immigrants, who instilled in her the value of education. She put herself through the universities of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and through medical school at University of Toronto in the early 1940's, later following in her older brother's footsteps to specialize in dermatology at Columbia University in New York, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College in 1950. Ricky settled with her husband, a biochemist, in Toronto where they raised their family. Doctor Ricky, as she preferred to be called, spent every day of her career fighting for equality and patient care, opening many doors for women in her discipline and pioneering new techniques for treating chronic dermatological conditions such as psoriasis and scleroderma. Her hard work, energy and devotion earned her many distinctions, including the Award of Merit from the Federation of Medical Women of Canada, the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal, the Order of Canada, the Canadian Dermatology Association Practioner of the Year Award and an honorary doctorate from Queen's University, but she always listed family on her CV as her most important contribution. She has been honoured for her contributions by medical associations from Ontario to Poland. Doctor SCHACHTER took great pride in her achievements, and continued working tirelessly for the benefit of her patients until she became ill in 2006. Doctor SCHACHTER will be sorely missed by her family, Friends, colleagues, students and patients. Her funeral will be held on Tuesday, July 3, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. at Beth Tzedec Synagogue, 1700 Bathurst Street. Interment will follow at Beth Tzedec Memorial Park, 5822 Bathurst Street. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ricky Kanee Schachter Memorial Fund c/o the Benjamin Foundation, 3429 Bathurst Street, Toronto, M6A 2C3, 416-780-0324.

SCHACHTER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-07-21 published
Canada's pre-eminent dermatologist refused to take no for an answer
She overcame the twin 'congenital anomalies' of being a Jew and a woman by entering medical school and becoming the country's best skin specialist
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- She was a mere slip - a hair over five feet tall, maybe 50 kilos - from a small Prairie town in the middle of nowhere, and was once told she suffered from two "congenital anomalies" that ensured her failure. Even so, people who knew Doctor Ricky Kanee SCHACHTER somehow lose their inhibitions when they describe her (not in so many words) as having had balls. She didn't just open doors for women in medicine, she kicked them down.
Diminutive in physical stature, a giant in her field and the definition of moxie, Doctor SCHACHTER was among Canada's pre-eminent dermatologists, and tallied several firsts: She was the first woman to head an academic division of dermatology in Canada, the first female president of the Canadian Dermatology Association (thus the first woman in Canada to lead specialists in her field) and was the first female to win the Canadian Dermatology Foundation's Practitioner of the Year award, in 2005.
As a woman and a Jew, she overcame tremendous obstacles at a time when being either, never mind both, meant that higher education was difficult, if attainable at all. But "these men and their rules," as she once put it, were not going to stand in her way. She became more determined than ever to become a doctor.
Her stunning success meant breakthroughs in the treatment of her specialties, scleroderma and psoriasis. In 1976, Doctor SCHACHTER established the Psoriasis Education and Research Centre, renamed four years ago the Phototherapy Education and Research Centre at Women's College Hospital in Toronto, the first of its kind in Canada.
Believing she could improve psoriasis sufferers' quality of life on an out-patient basis - that people were more or less capable of taking care of themselves - she first had to convince Ontario's Health Ministry that ambulatory care was more cost-effective than keeping patients in hospital. Her son, Doctor Daniel SCHACHTER, also a dermatologist, said her vision was to provide treatment that did not disrupt patients' daily lives and which stressed self-care - years before the concept existed. The facility remains one of the largest centres of its kind in Canada, and treats about 30,000 visitors annually. It has revolutionized the way some chronic skin diseases are treated.
"She empowered nurses in a way they were never empowered before to become not only caregivers but educators," noted Doctor Neil SHEAR, professor of dermatology at the University of Toronto. "She designed a clinic where people take responsibility for their own care. That has a huge impact on patient outcome.
"Ricky was not only the right person, but in the right place to really deliver a model of care that, even 30 years later, is still innovative and cutting-edge."
In 1991, the Ricky Kanee Schachter Dermatology Centre was opened at Women's College Hospital to treat and educate ambulatory patients, after six years of fundraising. (Her reaction to the campaign's establishment: "I thought I'd faint. I'm basically a shy person.") Shy maybe, but definitely dogged, a trait acquired from her immigrant parents - Russian father, Sam, and Austro-Hungarian mother, Rose - who came to Canada to escape the anti-Semitism of Europe. They had six children - the first died in childbirth - with Ricky their only daughter.
Sam KANEE had arrived in 1903 to work on the Canadian Pacific Railway. He settled in Melville, Saskatchewan., opened a general store and eventually went into the grain business to establish the successful Soo Line Mills.
Young Ricky had two role models as a child: her old brother Ben, who went to Columbia University to study dermatology, and her mother, who lovingly tended Ricky's younger brother Harry, who had cerebral palsy. Harry, who died at 16 of chicken pox, couldn't speak, and Rose KANEE taught him to communicate through magazine pictures.
Her other brothers were no slouches: Abe KANEE was an executive with Soo Line Mills. Sol KANEE, who died in April, practised law in Melville and was a former president of the Canadian Jewish Congress. He also formed the first small-loans bank, served on the board of the Bank of Canada longer than anyone and founded the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
Ricky, meantime, had skipped several grades, graduated from high school at 14, and announced her plans for university. Her father, an otherwise progressive man, countered that she would be taking up a place for a man, and wanted his daughter to get married and start a family. Ricky threatened that she would never get married until she had a university education. Her father scraped together the money.
She enrolled at the University of Manitoba, where she had her first encounter with anti-Semitism - an "awakening," as she put it in a 1995 published interview. "There was a sign in the women's locker room: 'You Jews have taken over Winnipeg Beach but we don't want you in our locker room.' " She transferred to the University of Saskatchewan where the dean informed her that all the universities in Canada, except in Halifax, had filled their quota of Jews. Six weeks before her final exams, despite being among the top three students, she was told she had to take an IQ test. She refused. Then she was told she couldn't graduate because she lacked a credit in physical education. "So while everybody else was studying, I learned how to swim."
She completed two years in one and, armed with a degree in science (and a swimming badge), she set out for medical school at the University of Toronto. In her only interview with the dean of medicine she was told there was no place for her because she had two congenital anomalies: She was a woman and Jewish.
"What a silly man," she recalled. "I don't think I ever spoke to him again. He didn't know how I felt about medicine. He didn't know how hard my parents worked to send me to university. He didn't know about my brother Ben. And he didn't know I had already been accepted at U of T."
In 1942, she married Benjamin SCHACHTER, a University of Toronto biochemist who was researching female sexual hormones, and graduated the following year. That was followed by two years of postgraduate training in dermatology at Columbia University in New York. Her association with Women's College Hospital began in 1946, and in 1961 she was appointed associate professor in the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine.
She challenged tradition, her grand_son Jonathan, 23, eulogized at her funeral. One of her patients, a nun, had developed a scalp condition from her veil, so in 1959, she wrote the Pope to complain about the dress code for nuns. "Boba got a response, though not from the Pope directly, granting permission for the nun to dress appropriately to cure her condition." A few years later, Jonathan added, the dress code for nuns was relaxed amid other reforms of the Second Vatican Council. "She was by no means an ordinary grandmother, nor an ordinary Jew or woman for that matter, but she was a fiercely driven person who could do whatever she wanted."
That didn't mean she was hard. Health care, poverty and the disparity between rich and poor were her greatest concerns, and her family her greatest love (the names of her children and grandchildren are on page one of a 24-page curriculum vitae).
"I learned so much from how she practised, how she handled patients [and] got to know them all exceedingly well," said Doctor Vera PRICE, who'd been a teenaged patient of Doctor SCHACHTER's, and later shared her practice.
"To this day I insist that all my residents and fellows get to know who they're treating. You have to know how to relate to them… I certainly got this from her," added Doctor PRICE, who now teaches medicine at the University of California in San Francisco. "[Patients] knew she loved them. She could be very strict and not mince her words, but the tremendous caring was there."
Among her many honours were the 1994 Award of Merit from the Federation of Medical Women of Canada, a 1995 award from the Women's Dermatologic Society, and in 1998, induction into the Order of Canada.
She retired several times, beginning in 1985, and stepped down from teaching when she reached 65. "No problem," she pronounced in 1995. "I just haven't accepted any salary for teaching the past 11 years."
Asked once about the best advice she ever received, she replied: "Don't take no for an answer - and I have passed it on to many people."
Ricky Kanee SCHACHTER was born in Melville, Saskatchewan., on December 23, 1918. She died in Toronto on July 1, 2007. She was 88. Her husband, Benjamin SCHACHTER, died in 2001. She is survived by her children, Doctor Daniel SCHACHTER and Bonnie DRUXERMAN. She also leaves grandchildren Reva, Jonathan, Jesse and Cobi.

SCHAEFER, Theodore Peter " Ted," C.M., D.Phil., D.Sc., F.R.S.C.
On September 15th, 2007 at his home, Ted slipped away quietly (as was his custom at social gatherings) after a brief illness which he faced with courage and grace. Predeceased by his parents and by his sisters Lily and Irma, Ted is survived by his brother Wilf, sister-in-law Ann, brothers-in-law John and Jake, his wife Nicola, daughter Catherine, sons Dominic and Ben, and a multi-generational flock of nieces and nephews. An academic, Ted's trajectory as a scientist was an interesting one. As he himself noted in a 1997 article in the Encyclopedia of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, he 'was born in a depression-ridden pioneer village [Gnadenthal] which lacked most physical amenities, even roads. Nevertheless, a good basic education was available and was followed by a sound training in the classical aspects of chemistry at the University of Manitoba.' Following completion of a Masters degree, Ted went to Oxford University on a Shell scholarship and, taking time off from his studies occasionally to play on the ice hockey team, subsequently received his D.Phil. He then returned to Winnipeg to accept a faculty position in the Chemistry Department at the U. of M. During his 40-year career at the University, Ted established and directed an active research program in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Research fellows and some 30 graduate students (many of whom received doctoral degrees) participated in this work and now occupy university positions across the country and beyond. The excellence of Ted's research - which led to over 300 publications - earned him numerous scientific awards and honours, including a Fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada. Ted was a superb teacher and mentor of both undergraduate and graduate students and in 1980 received the annual teaching award from the Graduate Students Association. Throughout his career, he provided outstanding support to his students, his colleagues, the U. of M. and the Chemistry profession in Canada. His scientific excellence was recognized by an honorary D. Sc. From the University of Winnipeg in 1982, and an appointment as a Member of the Order of Canada in 2003. At the time of his retirement in 1997, he was Distinguished Professor at the U. of M. Chemistry Department. Ted enjoyed his decade of retirement. Energetic physically, he walked miles each day wearing a variety of hats - literally, not figuratively - to protect his head from the elements. Equally vigorous mentally, and a life-long reader and thinker, he appreciated having time to immerse himself in subjects such as English and German literature, history, science and philosophy. And he enjoyed nothing more than an evening of intellectual sparring with Friends over a beer or two (or more). Deep gratitude to the folks at Hospice and Palliative Care Manitoba, who helped Ted's family avoid his being hospitalized. Many thanks, also, to family members, Friends, neighbours and colleagues for their constant support during Ted's illness. At Ted's request, cremation has taken place and there will be no service. However, a celebration of his life will be held, probably at the U. of M., in the spring of 2008.

Hunting camp blaze leaves three dead
By Sun Media News Services, Mon., August 13, 2007
Haliburton -- Three Minden men are dead following a fire that destroyed a remote hunting camp.
Ontario Provincial Police and more than 20 volunteer firefighters rode all-terrain vehicles through a rough and rocky trail Saturday to reach the camp near Haliburton, about 200 kilometres northeast of Toronto.
"There was virtually (no fire) to knock down by the time we got there," said Capt. Dan STIVER of Algonquin Fire Services.
The fire was reported after three other people escaped.
The blaze broke out about 5 a.m. Saturday at the camp on Third Lake near Stanhope Township, about 200 kilometres northeast of Toronto.
The blaze is being investigated by the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office.
Minden's fire Chief Doug SCHELL said he knew the men pretty well and it has hit the "community pretty hard."
One of the victims, said SCHELL, was Jerry COOPER -- a barber who worked on the Main Street in Minden and had just recently retired -- while another worked for the township.
"We were called out and helped Algonquin Highland fire department and provided them with an all-terrain vehicle to get in to the camp," SCHELL said.
Shaun CHAMBERLIN, owner of the Grill on the Gull restaurant, said "it has been a terrible tragedy for the whole community up here."
"Most of us own hunt camps and it really hits home," CHAMBERLIN said.
Autopsies will be conducted today.
