Nina MORLEY, Professor (1909-2006)
Brilliant University of Toronto researcher's first supervisor was Charles BEST, with whom she co-authored an early paper
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Most likely, Nina MORLEY, a bright high-school graduate from Kamloops, British Columbia, found her life a bit boring. During the 1930s, discouraged from working or higher education by her parents, she spent her life playing badminton, participating in theatre groups and leading Girl Guides.
So, when offered a free place to stay in Toronto, Nina MORLEY, 10 years out of high school, headed east on a one-way ticket. Once arrived, she enrolled at the University of Toronto and eventually became a researcher there. Her first supervisor was Charles BEST, a co-discoverer of insulin; with him, she co-authored one of her early papers.
She taught at the university while continuing with her research in the Banting and Best Department of Medical Research, part of the U of T's faculty of medicine.
Under the supervision of Arnis KUKSIS, she studied the activity of the lipases involved in fat absorption from the intestine and in fat clearance from the blood, resulting in a better understanding of one of the underlying causes of obesity, heart disease and strokes. Lipases are the enzymes that break down dietary or blood fats and free the fatty acids required for absorption by tissues.
Prof. MORLEY co-authored many papers published in leading scientific journals with Doctor KUKSIS, her final supervisor, between the late 1960s and late '70s. "Nina was a very determined, independent person," Doctor KUKSIS said. "There really wasn't room for supervision."
Nina Hope MORLEY grew up as the second of four daughters of an English lawyer and his wife. Not only did she excel in high school, but also at the U of T. The Globe and Mail reported in June of 1939: "Scores of scholarships and prizes studded the list with special kudos for the elect, none of them could match for sheer dramatic quality, the performance of Miss Nina H. MORLEY of Kamloops, British Columbia, who at 29, and after being out of school for 10 years, won the 1939 Governor-General's silver medal for highest general proficiency."
Prof. MORLEY, according to the reporter, said she had never thought much about going to university but, when the opportunity arose, she went out of curiosity and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Perhaps she had been influenced by a British teacher who once stayed with the MORLEY family. For at least 25 years, she corresponded with Christine Fonntaine, who sent her books as well as letters.
Prof. MORLEY supported herself through her degree by doing odd jobs and babysitting, graduating in 1941 in home economics. She interned at Vancouver General Hospital as a dietician and, in 1944, finished her master's degree at the University of British Columbia. The school hired her as an assistant professor of home economics.
"She was an excellent professor," said Evelyn SIMS, one of her students from that time. "She was compassionate and a great person. You could talk to her, any time."
At the same time, she worked on her PhD, keeping her research in one of the wartime huts that served as a classroom. When the hut burned down, her work went with it. Still, she completed her doctorate in home economics at Oregon State College in 1957.
From there, she took up research at the University of Toronto and stayed until retirement. After she retired, she stayed active with the university, proofreading and editing many papers. She also travelled extensively and took an avid interest in the history of the Middle East, even studying cuneiform.
She never married, perhaps because her British parents cared about the social status of her suitors, perhaps because the Second World War intervened.
Said a friend, Shirley FRASER: " She believed that everyone was put on Earth for a reason and that everyone, whether in work or in life, had it within them to live up to their full potential even if they had to be berated into believing it."
Nina Hope MORLEY was born in Kamloops, British Columbia, on December, 14, 1909. She died in Toronto on May 9. She is survived by her sister, Brenda.
