ENDICOTT, Norman Austin (1926-2005)
Born in Chongqing, China, the eldest son of missionaries James and Mary ENDICOTT, he liked to point out he was "third generation Chinese." Responsible for many hijinks at the Canadian School in Chengtu. After serving in the Royal Air Force overseas in 1944-45, he graduated a Silver Medalist from Victoria College and from Osgoode Hall Law School.
An "unrepentant premature anti-fascist," he early joined labour and peace campaigns and supported the Chinese revolutionary cause. He practiced corporate-commercial law, also lending his talents to progressive causes: June Marks' campaign against blockbusting in Ward 2; Alderman Dan Heap's fight against lead poisoning and for strikers at Texpack and Artistic Woodworking. He supported Madeleine Parent and Kent Rowley in their struggle for Canadian unions and Pauline Julienne and Pierre Godin for justice for Quebec. He was most proud of changes in immigration process as a result of the Dowhopaluk case.
In 1958 he organized a lawyers' delegation to China, meeting with Chou-En-Lai. He supported international organizations of jurists promoting the Geneva Agreement and advancement of the rule of law. He debated Red Guards at Baida in 1966. His Comportex Trading led the way in opening Canada-China trade in the 1970s, as well as trade with Cuba. He supported the Toronto Chinese Canadian Welfare Association and was a founding member of the Canadian China (Friendship) Society of Toronto in 1971. He helped establish North Carolina Press which contributed to the development of Canadian publishing.
Despite Parkinson's disease, he accompanied wife Caroline helping her teach English and business at S.I.S.U. in Chongqing in 1990. He established a representative office in Chongqing in 1993. Survived by wife Caroline WALKER, son Eric and daughter Susanne, grand_sons John and Paul FAIRLEY, stepson James PERLY and Michelle. Also by former wife Kathleen ENDICOTT, brothers Stephen and Mike, sister Shirley ENDICOTT- SMALL, George HUANG and family in Beijing, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Thanks to Sunnybrook Veterans' staff, the healthcare system and, especially, Vernon SMITZ.
A celebration of his life will be held on March 13, 2005. Please phone 416-363-1141 for details.
