STALLEY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-03-09 published
STALLEY, Francis " Frank" Palmer
Born: 29 May 1924 in Stratford, Ontario. Died: 04 March 2005 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Frank was the only child of the late Frank and Sarah Frances (VAUGHAN) STALLEY. He is survived by Sarah (GRANT) his beloved wife of 39 years, his much loved daughter Christian, her spouse Trevor BOSMAN, and his cherished grand_son Callum.
In his youth Frank distinguished himself as a promising concert pianist, and won many awards and scholarships. He held two degrees in music. After World War 2 interrupted his music career, he began a 42-year career in broadcasting, launching his new career at the local radio station in Stratford, Ontario. In the pre-television years to follow, he occupied positions in radio as news editor, reporter, script writer, program host, producer, and program director in as far-flung locations as northern Ontario, New Mexico, and California.
An avid proponent of public broadcasting, in 1953 Frank joined the television staff of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto and became involved in the production of many of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's early television programs. He was one of those who regularly anchored The National television news from 1954 to 1964. Among many other assignments during that decade he also co-hosted the first womens interest program Open House (which became Take 30); was the original host of Scan (the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's own weekly public relations program), and Music to See, one of the first Canadian Broadcasting Corporation programs to feature classical music on television. For diversion, Frank was a member of the original cast of the weekly television comedy show Nightcap. For several years he was the commercial announcer on the World Series Baseball Games.
In 1964 Frank left radio and television program production and moved to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's head Office in Ottawa as Executive Assistant to the Vice President of Regional Broadcasting. In 1968 he was posted to Vancouver as Director of Radio for British Columbia, and in 1972 moved to London, England as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Radio and Television Program Representative. He considered this position to be the highlight of his career, as it allowed him to live in and near his spiritual homes of England, France and Italy.
Franks final posting was to Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1978, where he took up the dual responsibilities of Resources Manager and Maritime Regional Talent Relations Officer. He retired in 1987, which enabled him to indulge his passion for travel. In his life he visited Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia, Northern and southern Africa, and most of North America. During his time in Halifax, he served for several years as a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Naval Memorial Trust (H.M.C.S. Sackville), and as a member of the inaugural Board of Directors of Symphony Nova Scotia. Frank was also an active member and strong supporter of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Pensioners Association. He was an Elder of the Presbyterian Church of St. David, and an active member of the Worship and Music Committee.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will take place at the Presbyterian Church of St. David, Grafton Street, Halifax on Thursday, March 10th at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (Nova Scotia Division), the Multiple Sclerosis Society (Atlantic Division), or a charity of your choice.

Frank STALLEY, Broadcaster: 1924-2005
Television pioneer who lost the power of speech during a boyhood bout of Bell's palsy was one of the first Canadian Broadcasting Corporation anchors on The National, writes Sandra MARTIN. He later became a network executive
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, March 15, 2005 Page S7
Long-time Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television broadcaster Frank STALLEY was a co-host with Anna Cameron on Open House, the precursor to Take Thirty, and an anchor and newsreader on the nightly news before moving from behind the cameras to a series of management jobs in London and across Canada.
Francis (Frank) Palmer STALLEY was born in Stratford, Ontario, the only child of Frank and Sarah Frances STALLEY. By the time he was 4, his parents realized that he had a natural aptitude for music. For the next 17 years, he trained to be a concert pianist and performed in recitals on radio and in local venues, winning many awards and scholarships. He studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and later at the Royal Schools of Music in London.
His musical training was interrupted in the mid-1930s when he was struck simultaneously with polio (then called infantile paralysis), which left him unable to walk, and Bell's palsy (trauma to the seventh cranial nerve), which deprived him of speech. To regain the ability to walk, he took swimming lessons and practised hard to regain the ability to talk, he spent hours speaking with a pencil between his teeth. A biographical sketch written for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1959 says Mr. STALLEY's "speech recovery was extremely difficult and even now... he has to consciously form each word before speaking."
He tried to enlist in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War but was rejected the first time because he was too young and the second time because he was suffering from mastoiditis, a condition that left him with diminished hearing in one ear.
So, in 1944, the 20-year-old Mr. STALLEY found a position as supervisor of elementary school music in Ontario's Bruce County. A year was enough to persuade him to seek his fortunes elsewhere. Through a mix of ingenuity and happenstance -- a neighbour offered him a job -- he found himself the "announcer-operator-news editor-commercial writer and technician" at CJCS in Stratford, Ontario Apparently, he also swept out the place at night.
A year later, he switched to CFCH in North Bay and a job as staff announcer. Even though he was promoted to chief announcer in 1947, he moved to KVER in Albuquerque, N.M., and a dual position as news editor and newscaster. Moving up meant moving around, or so he thought, as he headed for Los Angeles, where he was reduced to washing dishes, or "pearl diving" in the slang of the time. He found some success as a freelance announcer and as a writer of scripts for classical music programs. In 1948, he moved to San Francisco, where he stayed until the Korean War broke out. He then headed back to radio station CHOK in Sarnia, this time as program manager, a position he held until he went to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as an announcer in 1954.
He was a regular anchor on The National news, along with Larry Henderson and Rex Loring. Broadcaster Patrick WATSON remembers directing him as a newsreader when "I was a new boy and he a staff announcer, and that he was helpful and courteous and good at his job."
Broadcaster Vincent Tovell also remembers him from the early 1960s. "My memory of him is totally positive. He was easy, pleasant, very efficient, all of those nice things. Television was live and you had to be cool."
Among many other assignments during the 1950s and 1960s, Mr. STALLEY was the co-host of the first women's program, Open House, with broadcaster Anna Cameron. She remembers him as "a very nice and gracious man" who played the piano, sometimes even on the show.
Actor and broadcaster Paul SOLES, who co-hosted Take 30, the successor to Open House, first with Ms. Cameron and then with Adrienne Clarkson, says Mr. STALLEY "had a light, genuine, engaging manner and voice."
As a neophyte performer on television, Mr. SOLES looked on announcers such as Mr. STALLEY as "the standard setters" for the use of language and phrasing. "I recall his calm, often wry, welcoming and gentleness" as a host, and his "quiet formality."
After only a decade before the cameras, Mr. STALLEY "moved up the line" into administration, working first in Ottawa as executive assistant to Charles Jennings, the vice-president of regional broadcasting. That's where he met and married Sarah GRANT, his wife of nearly 40 years. "He was a wonderful, intelligent, humorous, caring individual," she said.
In 1968, he was posted to Vancouver as director of radio for British Columbia, and then to London as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's radio and television program representative. "He loved that," said Mrs. STALLEY. " His family had come from England and he had spent a lot of time there with his parents in his youth. Living in London in the '70s was the time to be there."
After London, he was given the choice of moving to Toronto or Halifax; he chose the latter partly because his wife's family came from there and partly because he wanted a quieter posting as he headed toward retirement. He stepped down from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation at the age of 63 in 1987. In retirement, travel, music and his membership in the Presbyterian church became big interests.
In the past decade, he survived three serious illnesses -- bacterial meningitis, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and a pulmonary embolism. "We thought he would always survive everything," his wife said last week. Then shortly before Christmas, he developed an unusual and aggressive type of lung cancer. Not even he could beat cancer.
Frank STALLEY was born in Stratford, Ontario, on May 29, 1924. He died of lung cancer in Halifax on March 4, 2005. He was 80. He is survived by his wife, Sarah and daughter Christian.

I Remember -- Frank STALLEY
By Garth GODDARD, Wednesday, March 23, 2005, Page S9
Garth GODDARD of Toronto writes about broadcaster Frank STALLEY, whose obituary ran on March 15.
I knew Frank when we were both at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto in the late 1950s and early '60s, but did not know that he had trained as a pianist. I did know that he knew a lot about music, though, because he hosted a program of recorded music on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio on Sunday afternoon, and his comments were always knowledgeable. He was very fond of Sergei Rachmaninov and, whenever he played a recording with him at the piano, he would say, reverently, "No one plays Rachmaninov like Rachmaninov."
I also remember being in a television studio one day when Frank wandered in and, finding a piano there, sat down and started to play Beethoven's challenging Piano Sonata No. 21, the Waldstein. I thought he was doing a pretty creditable job of it, but he soon stopped, saying, "And that's where it always ends -- in the middle of page 1, in a welter of notes."

After marrying, Sarah and Frank moved to Vancouver, then to London, England, with their daughter, Christian. On returning to Canada, Sarah became a Realtor in Halifax.
Sarah's life was filled with close Friends and adventure. She had an insatiable appetite for the arts, good literature and travel, which she indulged in her youth and then shared with her husband Frank. They travelled extensively in North America, Europe, Eastern Europe and Africa.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at the Church of St. David, Grafton St, Halifax, on Wednesday November 23rd, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Mississippi Society of Canada.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alexander DUNCAN on Saturday, April 30th, 2005. Alex was predeceased by his devoted and loving life partner of nearly half a century James Richard SHAEFFER. Alex passed away due to complications from a recent stroke and weakened by grief over the loss of his beloved Jim two weeks prior (see obituary for SHAEFFER, James Richard). Alex is predeceased by his parents Mary Jean and William DUNCAN, sister Dora WAY (Bill,) brother Douglas DUNCAN (Vicki,) sister Sheila STAMBULSKI, brother-in-law Denny RAGEN, and cousin and great friend May WAY. Deeply saddened by his loss are sister Gertrude RAGEN, step-sister Sandy VERNON, brother-in-law Stanley STAMBULSKI, and many devoted nieces and nephews. Alex will be affectionately remembered and deeply missed by all members of the Shaeffer family for his humour, generous spirit, and hospitality. Many people in the "Doggie Profession" will remember Alex and Jim. They started out showing dogs, went on to their own breeding kennels in Uxbridge, Ontario, and eventually settled down and opened the grooming business "The Beauty Salon for Dogs" on O'Connor Drive in Toronto. When it came time to retire they took their two pups Maude and Fred and moved to Niagara Falls where they enjoyed a beautiful home and garden, and made some wonderful new Friends, both two legged and four. The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses of the Greater Niagara General Hospital for their tender loving care and support, not only to Alex and Jim, but the family as well. Special thanks go out to a wonderful friend and mentor Paul BARBER; your gentle spirit, calm demeanor, offers of respite, and quiet talks soothed our hearts. Cremation has taken place. In memory of Alex and Jim, please support an animal shelter, an agency that trains service dogs, or just take a few minutes to walk your four legged best friend. God bless you Alex. We are so proud of you!Arrangements entrusted to Niagara Funeral Alternatives, (905) 894-0120.

Romance writer troubled by memories
Barbara BROUSE added depth to bodice rippers
Memoirs recall mother's abuse, servants' kindness
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
As Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR, she created a world in which love's raging passion always overcomes deceit, betrayal and flame-haired predators (aka the other woman), in which the oh-so-handsome (but distant) count will finally sweep our heroine, the small grey-eyed governess, into his rippling arms and, with a shudder, a groan low in his throat, cover her mouth with burning kisses.
She was one of the world's best-selling romance writers.
As Barbara BROUSE she had to be: her own marriage was disintegrating and she was single-handedly keeping four children and a grand house going in Rosedale.
It was the early '80s and she was part of a romantic revolution, one of a stable of writers injecting new realism -- and more than one plot line -- into bigger and bolder love stories. Now there were throbbing groins, restless hands, sex scenes and heroines who were definitely not virginal.
She wrote the first of Harlequin's Super Romance novels: End of Innocence ("Rafael's eyes had darkened and directed their attention toward the region of her breasts... her heart beat like a winged thing..."). Later she was a solid performer for Silhouette and wrote as Araby SCOTT for Avon publishers.
"My editor-in-chief met Barbara at a Romance Writers of America conference and I remember her calling me with so much excitement in her voice saying 'Guess who I signed up for our list? Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR.' It was a coup at the time," said Alicia CONDON, a former senior editor with Silhouette Books.
CONDON edited TAILOR/TAYLOR's book Hold Back The Night, which became a huge seller for the U.S. publisher.
"It had an emotional depth and drama to it that was not common at that time in contemporary romance; it was a book that really struck me," CONDON remembered.
The story featured a young woman who falls in love with a sculptor. There is a misunderstanding and she has his child without him ever knowing.
The copy editor who worked on the book told CONDON it was the best book she'd ever read. CONDON herself wrote to BROUSE in a letter: "This book wrings tears out of me every time I read it."
From 1979 to about 1984, BROUSE wrote dozens of romance novels, many of which were translated and published in Japanese, Italian, French, Portuguese and Swedish. They were never just tales of girl-meets-older-'n'-wealthier-man, and she was never just a dilettante tossing off fanciful froth between lunch engagements.
"She was up every morning at 5 a.m. writing until 5 p.m. and then she would make dinner for all of us. We'd all descend on her in her study after school wanting to know what we were having for dinner. She really did keep it all together," said her daughter Gillian BROUSE.
A former advertising copywriter, Barbara BROUSE thoroughly researched the locales for her stories, whether she had been there or not. She displayed all her books on a shelf behind her desk and enjoyed getting letters from her fans. "They would tell her that she touched their lives," said Gillian. "They don't say that when you write an ad for a refrigerator."
But five years after she began writing, she stopped. She never wrote another romance. It was years before she wanted to write another book -- and when she did, it consumed her.
After she fought her way back from a stroke that robbed her of her ability to speak, BROUSE began a long journey of introspection that resulted in her need to tell her own story. She wrote three volumes, The Drumming, Lion In The Drawer and Dolly, of polished but raw, painful stories of childhood abuse.
More than anything she had written, she wanted these published. After immersing herself in the fiction of love conquers all, she wanted desperately to tell a true story of overcoming cruelty. But when she died at 73 of a heart attack on February 23, she still hadn't found a publisher.
BROUSE was born in Indore, India; her Canadian father was a missionary doctor who tended to many of the prisoners of war made famous in the film The Bridge on the River Kwai. He was also Lord Mountbatten's physician. She was sent away to an Irish boarding school when she was six, then came to Toronto to attend Brown public school, Bishop Strachan School and the University of Toronto.
She was hired by Simpson's to write advertising copy, but after she met and married Leo BROUSE, the couple started their own advertising agency, Lionel T. Brouse and Associates. It was a good time to be in the advertising game. "It was very creative and a lot of fun then," said Margaret BREAK. She and her husband Paul were great Friends with the couple, who were at the centre of the social set of the '60s. They were golden: he was urbane, witty and charismatic; she was beautiful and talented. She wrote the lyrics for the jingle "It's hard not to think of the Bay" and "Kleenex knows noses."
She worked from home, where she looked after their four children: Andrew, now a researcher and PhD candidate at University of Plymouth the twins Gillian, a marketing consultant currently on maternity leave, and Susan, a casting director in Vancouver, and Terance, a communications consultant.
In a house teeming with books and children, she made up stories about a gang of crazy alley cats for her own brood. But when their ad business took a downturn, her marriage showed the strain. Leo BROUSE, who died in 1999, took to sleeping all day and roaming the house at night, a drink at hand. Barbara BROUSE bought a box full of romance novels, studied them and started writing. The marriage officially ended when she stopped writing them.
She sold the big house in Rosedale and all the antiques. "Barbara scoffed at all that anyway," said her friend Buck HENRY, a hairdresser. They met when he came to look at some of the antiques she was selling.
BROUSE was barely into her 60s when she was felled by a massive stroke in 1997. Her carotid artery completely closed down; she could not remember any words and she had to learn how to speak all over again. No one understood the process. In fact, doctors told her she might never be able to walk or talk again.
Henry and the four children took turns being with her in the hospital. He remembers the despair of watching his friend struggling and failing -- to say even a one-syllable word.
"I remember Gillian saying to me 'I just want my Mom back,'" he said.
Her children recall her trying to tell them something after the stroke. Someone handed her a piece of paper so she could spell it out. She wrote "moves," then crossed it out, "woves," crossed it out as well. They started guessing words. Finally someone said "loves." "Yes," she said, pointing in turn to each of her children. "Love, love, love, love."
Her love of language may have saved her: she read and memorized the poetry she loved until the sound of those words became familiar to her again. When her father died in 1994, she turned to writing to revisit her childhood and recover the memories of the abuse she remembers receiving at the hands of her mother. It was also the way she wanted to thank the servants in the family home in India, whom she was convinced saved her from even worse trauma.
"Nobody was helping her do this, her writing was helping her," said her friend Peggy STAMP, who is a therapist. "It turned out to be the route to her unconscious."
But many of her Friends were uncomfortable when BROUSE talked about her latest writing. They had been fine with her escapism writing, the romance novels with the inevitable happy endings, but were threatened and frightened by her memoirs.
Some of them didn't believe her, and she spent years researching and trying to verify her memories.
The three unpublished volumes are her life's work. Not the hundreds of thousands of novels sold round the world by Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR or Araby SCOTT. Her children understand that; they say they are determined to find a publisher for their mother's last and most important words.
