Edith FIRTH, Librarian And Scholar: 1927-2005
Historian who wrote the book on early Toronto was a librarian with a gift for inspired research, writes Sandra MARTIN. Although she retired in 1982, the Toronto Public Library still profits from her work
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, July 30, 2005, Page S9
A woman of impeccable intellectual standards, Edith FIRTH edited landmark collections of documents about the early history and culture of Toronto. As head of Canadian manuscripts at the Toronto Public Library for 30 years, she belonged to the tradition of scholar/librarians -- professionals who publish their own research while providing the tools that enable others to write and study.
"She created a scholarly haven for historians and geographers in the Baldwin Room," said geographer John WARKENTIN, who first met her as a graduate student in the early 1950s. "Aside from leading just about everybody and their brother to the materials that they built their reputations on, she was very important as a historian," said writer Stephen OTTO. " Almost anything she put on paper herself will stand the test of time."
"She was much more than capable," said historian Maurice CARELESS. "She was very confident and rightly so because she knew what she was doing. I felt a great sense of trustworthiness in her work." As for her books, "they really were very good."
Tall, elegant and reserved, she had a quick sharp wit that she shared with close Friends and confidants. While clumsy or inept researchers were treated courteously and given access to the documents they requested, she was known to mutter: "That man is a menace."
"We are still reaping the benefit of what she did throughout her career," said David KOTIN, her successor as manager, special collections, at the Toronto Public Library. "She put her stamp on them and the staff." The library's holdings now include 25,000 books relating to Canada published before 1900, about 30,000 broadsides, posters and ephemera and 80,000 pictures.
Edith Grace FIRTH grew up in North Bay, Ontario, where her geologist father had taken up teaching high-school science. The youngest of four children of Thomas and Amy FIRTH, she left home in the late 1940s to attend the University of Toronto, graduating with an honours degree in modern history and a degree in library science.
After graduation, she joined the staff of the Toronto Public Library, where she worked in general reference. In 1952, she was put in charge of the Treasure Room, where the library's rare books, especially Canadiana, were housed.
She began studying for a master's degree in history in the early 1950s while continuing to work at the Toronto Public Library and to prepare her first publication, Guide to the Manuscript Collections in the Toronto Public Libraries, which was issued in 1954.
Prof. WARKENTIN, the geographer, met her in J.M.S. CARELESS's senior seminar on the history of Old Ontario at that time. They were both a little older than the other students and they "hit it off together." He remembers her "steely regard" for good scholarship. "Her standards were very high, and she was quite independent-minded."
Prof. CARELESS remembers her as "highly capable and very engaging and intelligent." She never finished the graduate degree, perhaps because she was doing historical research in her job and didn't feel the need of another qualification. In 1961, she completed Early Toronto Newspapers, 1793-1867, a catalogue of newspapers published before Confederation in the Town of York and the City of Toronto.
When the Toronto Public Library opened its Reference Library Addition in its building at St. George and College Streets in 1960, Ms. FIRTH was put in charge of the new Baldwin Room of Manuscripts and Canadiana (named after Reformer Robert Baldwin, an early advocate of responsible government) and the Toronto Room, which housed current and bound volumes of Toronto newspapers and the Early Toronto Picture Collection.
She and Prof. WARKENTIN renewed their Friendship when they met up again in the early 1960s as volunteers with the Champlain Society, an organization devoted to increasing public access to and awareness of our documentary heritage. "She was the general editor of the Ontario series and I was elected to the council [of the Champlain Society]," he said. "We were quite junior members," at least compared to the "titans of Canadian history" on the board at the time -- a list that included W.L. Morton, Donald Creighton, C.P. Stacey, W.K. Lamb (Dominion archivist and the first national librarian of Canada) and Leslie Frost, the recently retired premier of Ontario. "And there was Edith -- shy and reserved, but, if she made any remarks, they listened because it was very clear that she was respected as a scholar."
The early 1960s was an optimistic time for Canadian studies in the run-up to the centennial celebrations. Ontario, and its capital city, were no exception. It was in this era, when public money was available to underwrite large historical projects, that Ms. FIRTH made her mark as the editor of The Town of York, 1793-1815, which was published by University of Toronto Press and the Champlain Society in 1962 (with financial support from the Ontario government, thanks largely to Mr. Frost and his successor, John Robarts). She had spent more than three years amassing and editing documents related to the early history of Toronto from the library's own collections, the federal and provincial archives and many other repositories and historical societies in Canada and the United States.
In a review in The Globe, Col. STACEY, the military historian, declared The Town of York "the most important book on the history of Toronto in many years." He described it as "a big handsome volume of documents" from "the day in 1793 when Col. and Mrs. John Graves SIMCOE and the Queen's Rangers arrived to found the settlement, down to the end of the War of 1812, during which the place was twice raided by the Americans."
Five years later, on the eve of the centennial year, Ms. FIRTH compiled The Town of York, 1815-1834: A Further Collection of Documents of Early Toronto. She pushed the story ahead to the incorporation of "dirty little York" into the city we know as Toronto and the election of journalist William Lyon MacKENZIE as its first mayor.
By then, the newly minted Toronto, which had more than 9,000 inhabitants and was the biggest town in Upper Canada, had survived the cholera epidemic of 1832 and the nascent battles between MacKENZIE the reformer and the members of the ruling oligarchy later known as the Family Compact. In reviewing this volume for The Globe, Col. STACEY praised Ms. FIRTH for "the skill and ingenuity with which she has hunted documents from their hiding places and explained them, and for the lucid introduction with which the volume begins."
Prof. WARKENTIN was a frequent user of the Baldwin Room, which moved to the new Raymond Moriyama facility on Yonge Street that was opened as the Metro Toronto Reference Library in the early 1970s. He had many occasions to watch Ms. FIRTH in action on the floor, or in her office "scribbling away on her research" and attending to administrative work.
Of course, she wasn't working all the time. She and her older sister, Mary, an English teacher, lived in a house in Etobicoke, cared for their widowed mother and attended to an older sister who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. When they could, the two sisters travelled -- mainly to England -- and collected commemorative China, a passion that had begun when Edith's father had given her a plate celebrating the young Princess Elizabeth after the coronation of George Virgin Islands.
After Mary died in 1975, Ms. FIRTH continued to build the collection, which eventually included a Charles II plate from 1673, wares celebrating William and Mary and the Glorious Revolution of 1688 and a 1722 mug mourning the death of Queen Anne. The collection of nearly 400 pieces, which was displayed on shelves in the recreation room in her basement, was eventually sold at auction for £160,000 at Christie's in London in 1999.
She retired in 1982 at 55, perhaps with the intention of writing more books or devoting more time to her hobbies and her nieces and nephews. The following year, she published Toronto in Art: 150 Years Through Artists' Eyes to coincide with the city's sesquicentennial. The selection was limited to 70 works by 130 artists chosen for their historical value in depicting the city from 1834 to 1983. It won the City of Toronto Book Award in 1984.
Writer Stephen OTTO met her first as a library user and then came to know her well when he headed up the Ontario Heritage Conservation program in the mid-1970s. The odd thing, says Mr. OTTO, was that she didn't write more actively or productively after she retired. It was "almost as if she wanted to throw away her scholarship," he said. Instead, she indulged her passion for Dandie Dinmont dogs, a breed of Scottish terriers.
In the past few years, the family affliction of Alzheimer's disease began flexing its deadly tentacles. Lawyer Joseph CERMAK (a dear friend who met her after he arrived as a refugee from Czechoslovakia in 1949 and found a job as an assistant at Toronto Public Library) kept a caring watch over her, organizing a housekeeper and finally a nursing home a few weeks ago.
Edith Grace FIRTH was born in Lindsay, Ontario, on January 27, 1927. She died of Alzheimer's disease in Toronto on July 23, 2005. She was 78. She is survived by a brother-in-law, a sister-in-law, six nieces and nephews and their families.

John GLADSTONE, Cleric And Orator 1921-2005
Handsome, eloquent and blessed with a keen intelligence, the Baptist minister was 'a pulpit virtuoso' who cultivated a large and loyal Toronto congregation, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page S7
A passionate soccer fan, an avid reader of spy thrillers and a man of unwavering faith, John GLADSTONE was such a compelling preacher that he drew celebrants to his Toronto pulpit from as far away as Michigan. For more than 30 years, Reverend Charles Adams of Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit would conduct two services for his own congregation on Sunday mornings, drive with his wife to Toronto to hear Reverend GLADSTONE deliver his evening sermon and then get back in their car for the four-hour drive home.
Back in the early 1970s, a time of bristling racial tensions in the northern U.S., Reverend Adams was feeling burdened by the weight of his pastoral duties. He loved Toronto "as a city of high intellect and high culture" and he wanted "to be where I could be stimulated, but not called upon [as a pastor]. Chancing upon Yorkminster Park Baptist Church in mid-town Toronto, he found himself in a "gorgeous, gorgeous church and wonderful music and great, great preaching" by Reverend GLADSTONE.
Rev. Adams always sat in a back pew because he didn't want to be conspicuous, although as a black man in those white-bread days that was a slim hope. "I just wanted to receive the word and it was preached with such clarity and such classical greatness that I would go many times to fulfill my spiritual cup and recharge my batteries," he said this week. "Dr. GLADSTONE stimulated me intellectually and spiritually as a man who was morally committed to what he was doing and what he was about."
John Norris GLADSTONE was born in 1921 in London, the second of three children of a Baptist minister and his wife. He grew up in Suffolk in the east of England, playing goal in soccer and developing a life-long passion for the Arsenal football club of London. He enlisted in the Royal Air Force when the Second World War broke out, hoping to become a pilot. Because he was myopic in one eye, he failed the eyesight test and was assigned instead to the "codes-and-ciphers" detachment. That is probably how he survived the war, commented his son Peter GLADSTONE, a Toronto cardiologist, pointing out that his father had served in Iceland and was part of the Normandy landing in June, 1944, before being sent to Australia to help defend against a feared expansion of the war in Asia.
After peace came, Reverend GLADSTONE attended Manchester Baptist College. He graduated and was ordained in 1950, the same year he married Joyce AUSTIN. In the early years of their marriage and his ministry they served in churches in Caversham, Plymouth and Bromley and had their two children, Peter and Judith. Leonard GRIFFITH, long-time minister at St. Paul's Anglican Church and another legendary Toronto preacher, met Reverend GLADSTONE in 1960 when he moved to England to serve as minister in an Anglican church in the East End of London.
The two families both lived in Bromley, an awkward commute to Rev. GRIFFITH's church. One Sunday night, feeling exhausted from preaching both a morning and an evening sermon at City Temple, Rev. GRIFFITH arrived at Bromley Station, praying for a bus to take him the rest of the way home. Instead, as he told the celebrants at the memorial service for Reverend GRIFFITH on Sunday, he found "an angel on the platform, wearing a clerical collar," with a car waiting outside.
Later, Reverend GRIFFITH invited his friend to preach at a week-day noon service at City Temple. "Here was a pulpit virtuoso who approached the preaching task with the preparation and dedication of a violinist approaching a concerto," Reverend GRIFFITH said in his tribute. "His sermon gripped me because it had something to say. It was well structured, richly illustrated, appealing to my heart as well as my mind. He had obviously written a full manuscript, but there was no sign of it, because he looked directly into the faces of his congregation and preached with an eloquence that flowed from his finger tips."
The GLADSTONE family immigrated to Canada in response to a call from Yorkminster Park Baptist Church early in 1965. He served the congregation for 26 years, publishing four books of his collected sermons, contributing regularly to Moments of Meditation on CFRB radio and guest preaching in a wide variety of pulpits that included the Bill Graham Schools of Evangelism and the First Baptist Church in Washington, where he spent eight months as an interim minister after he officially retired from Yorkminster Park.
His evangelical prowess is celebrated in The John N. Gladstone Festival of Preaching at McMaster Divinity College in Hamilton, an annual professional-development event devoted to technique and sources.
Former cabinet minister Barbara MacDOUGALL, who grew up attending Sunday services in the church, described him as very caring and compassionate, but also realistic. "He understood the whole range of human emotion," she said. In commenting on his "seamless and very interesting sermons," she said Reverend GLADSTONE had an exceptional mind that he combined with a great faith and a formidable capacity to communicate. "He had a scholarly background so he was very knowledgeable and he also had a good sense of humour. I don't think any of his sermons passed without some humorous anecdote that would illustrate his point very well."
A tall, handsome man with a slight British accent, chalk-white hair and a twinkle in his eye, Reverend GLADSTONE's appearance and manner of dressing were as elegant as his speech. "We all have our vulnerabilities and maybe that was one of his, but it is not one that I regard as serious," Ms. MacDOUGALL said with a laugh. "If God gives you the gift of being good-looking, what are you waiting for?"
Anglican canon Reginald STACKHOUSE, referred to him as "one of the last pulpit giants" who not only attracted a larger attendance to his church, but held it for more than two decades. That's a considerable tribute, he said, to somebody who was preaching twice a Sunday in a time when the conventional wisdom decreed that sermons were out of date, preaching was an anachronism, and the church itself was in decline. "John GLADSTONE represented the reality, mainly that people still look for the spoken word and respond to it when it is done so well."
Rev. Adams concurred. "He was an amazing master of the English language with a very clear lyrical way of expressing himself," he said. As a preacher, Reverend GLADSTONE used examples and illustrations from literature, the Bible, current events and everyday life to make concrete connections with his congregation. "He was inspirational in his prayers," said Reverend STACKHOUSE. "He had a combination of elegant language and suppliant delivery. One did not get the impression that he was haranguing the Almighty; he was petitioning, but in a most elegant way."
Both his children considered him a "wonderful" father who loved them unconditionally. "We certainly weren't unconditionally good, but that didn't matter," said his daughter Judith MURRAY, a physiotherapist. "He had a terrific sense of humour," added his son Peter.
After 47 years of marriage, Reverend GLADSTONE's wife Joyce died in 1997, the same year he underwent a double bypass heart operation. Three years later, he suffered a couple of small strokes that affected his ability to organize his thoughts. When he found he could no longer preach extemporaneously to the high standards he had set himself, he stepped down from the pulpit and served the church in other ways.
His successor Reverend Peter HOLMES was "very gracious" about asking him to lead the congregation in prayer and to read the scripture during services, according to Ms. MURRAY. And her father was very gracious in return. "I never ask, but I always say yes," he told his daughter about Reverend HOLMES's invitations. He also devoted a lot of time to House of Compassion, an organization that serves the homeless, and to the Langham Trust, a foundation established for the education of clergy in the developing world.
His support of the Arsenal football club grew as time passed and in his retirement he devoted Saturday mornings to watching his favourite team on television. "He was an Arsenal fan to the end," said his son. "It was a big comfort to him" after his wife died, said his daughter, adding with a chuckle that her mother "wouldn't have allowed him to watch that much soccer."
Admitting that as a child it was sometimes hard to share her father with the rest of the congregation, Ms. MURRAY said that "as a kid you see that as a negative, but now I see it as a positive. My pastor said [after her father died] 'he pointed the way to heaven for a lot of people.' How could I not share somebody who was doing that?"
John Norris GLADSTONE was born in the Hammersmith area of London on October 6, 1921. He died of cancer after a long illness in Toronto on January 4. He was 83. He is survived by his son Peter and daughter Judith.

Robert Lee CLARKE died early Thursday morning of cancer. He was born in Vermilion, Alberta on April 17, 1922 to Harold J. CLARKE and Leonora Opfergelt CLARKE. He was educated in Vermilion, then at the University of Alberta (1939-1943), where he received the Governor General's Medal upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science. He went on to McGill University (1945-1948) to receive a Ph.D. in Physics. He worked at the National Research Council from 1943 to 1945, and Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. from 1948 to 1968. He then joined the Physics Department of Carleton University where he served as department chair in the 1970s. He formally retired in 1987, but continued to work in Medical Physics research as Professor Emeritus, and served on university committees, right up until the month before he died. In addition, he spent many periods of research at the Institute of Cancer Research at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Belmont, Surrey, United Kingdom. He was instrumental in setting up the medical physics research section at Carleton University and assisted in setting up the Ottawa Medical Physics Institute in 1989. On the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the Ottawa Medical Physics Institute, the Robert Clarke Graduate Scholarship in Medical Physics was set up. Devoted to Canada and to physics, Bob was a member of the Canadian Association of Physics from the beginning and enjoyed many professional and personal Friendships.
In 1943 he met Vera POWELL at N.R.C. They were colleagues in the Optics Section, and were married in 1945. There are four children: James (Betty LAM,) Gwyneth (Craig LEWIS,) Alan (Madeline WELD,) and Brian (Sandra COONEY.) There are eleven grandchildren: Owen (Carolina IBARRA), Roger (Becci GINDIN) and Edwin CLARKE, Brandon, Denise (Mike BILLY), Eleanor and Anna LEWIS; Ansel and Derwin CLARKE; and Liam and Colleen CLARKE; and three great grand children: Catherine, Reeva, and Mike Billy. Bob will also be remembered by Betty and Lloyd STACKHOUSE, Patricia CLARKE (late Donald), and nephews and nieces. His many Friends enriched and broadened his life.
Bob's interests were wide-ranging. He enjoyed games of tennis, and later squash until early 2005. For many years he flew small airplanes, in the United Kingdom and in Canada. He bicycled around Ottawa and took grandchildren boating on Dow's Lake. He enjoyed concerts at the National Arts Centre, attended Wednesday meetings at Riverside Kiwanis and delivered Meals on Wheels, where his regular Christmas delivery will be missed by many. He travelled extensively in Canada and in the United Kingdom and in many other parts of the world from Nigeria to Japan and places in between.
The family would like to thank Dr. BHIMJI and the staff on A5 at the Ottawa Civic Hospital for their care and compassion.
There will be a Private Family Funeral Service, and a Public Memorial Gathering at Carleton University at a date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Robert Clarke Graduate Scholarship in Medical Physics, care of Carleton University, or a charity of your choice.
