Audrey CAMPBELL, 90 Philanthropist
Newspaper magnate's daughter left own legacy in health care, racing
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
A horse breeder, a philanthropist and a nurturer of family and Friends, Audrey CAMPBELL was the last surviving child of newspaper magnate Roy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Together with her three daughters, she gave $25-million to establish the Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. The gift "really was transformational because it was the largest private donation for breast cancer at that point and also because it helped to support the work of Doctor Tak MAK… and allowed him to grow his team and his research organization," said Paul ALOFS, president of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, referring to the renowned cancer researcher.
Mrs. CAMPBELL's younger brother, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, celebrated her generosity with a public tribute.
"From the time of my first memories, I have looked up to Audrey as my big sister, the person who, along with my parents, looked after me and always had my best interests at heart," he said. "She prefers a low profile and I'm sure all this recognition embarrasses her… [but] she has made me proud of her again."
Phyllis Audrey THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917, the eldest child of Roy and Edna (IRVINE) THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Her sister Irma (later BRYDSON) was born in 1918 (died 1966,) and her brother Kenneth in 1923 (obituary June 13, 2006).
Audrey's early years were far from luxurious - her father, the son of a barber, struggled to make enough money for food and rent. The THOMSONs moved to Ottawa in 1925, when she was 8, and to North Bay three years later. Her father worked as a travelling salesman before he paid $1 for a broadcasting licence, bought a 50-watt transmitter on three months credit and started his first radio station, CFCH, in North Bay. Soon, he also bought radio station CKGB in Timmins and then moved into print by acquiring the Timmins Daily Press in 1934.
Three years later, the family moved back to Toronto. Audrey, now 20, attended the University of Toronto and earned a bachelor of arts degree. After the Second World War, she met Queen's University engineering graduate Elwood CAMPBELL, later a high-school math and physics teacher. They married in 1947 and bought a three-bedroom bungalow in Port Credit, where they raised their three daughters, Linda, Gaye and Susan.
Despite her father's immense wealth from his North American and European newspaper interests and his stake in North Sea oil and gas, Mrs. CAMPBELL lived a quiet suburban life, immersed in family and her daughters' activities. While she attended meetings of Woodbridge, the family holding company, she was not involved in the running of the Thomson corporate empire. "I may have inherited my father's title and had many benefits conferred upon me in the business and social world, but Audrey is mind, heart and head of the family," Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said of his older sister in Mrs. CAMPBELL's two younger daughters were interested in riding ponies, which triggered her own interest in standardbred horses. She and her husband started small in the early 1970s, with a part ownership in a single animal. She found early success with horses Armbro Dallas and Arcane Hanover and eventually established the Lothlorien Equestrian Centre in Cheltenham, Ontario, an offshoot of her daughter Susan's own stable of hunters and jumpers called Lothlorien Farms. "Lothlorien" is the name of a forest in J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional Middle-earth.
Breeding and racing horses became an enduring passion for Mrs. CAMPBELL, who eventually had a stable of more than a dozen horses. In 2002, Red River Hanover, which she partly owned, won the $1.5-million prize for harness racing in Toronto. Three years later, Rocknroll Hanover won the Breeders Crown Race at New Jersey's Meadowlands Racetrack.
In 2004, Mrs. CAMPBELL and her daughters decided to invest in health care in a focused way, rather than just making a general donation to the system. They researched where their money might have the most impact and decided to support the work of Doctor MAK because they realized that his work on cancer cells would have far-reaching consequences in breast cancer, but other types of malignancies as well.
Phyllis Audrey CAMPBELL was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917. She died of metastasized melanoma in Toronto Western Hospital on September 23, 2007. She was 90. Predeceased by her husband, Elwood, she leaves her three daughters, 10 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and extended family.
