KATZ, Sidney
On Thursday, September 13, 2007, Sidney (Sholem) KATZ died peacefully in his 92nd year at Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital after a long battle with kidney disease.
Born in Ottawa in 1916, he was the third son of Samuel KATZ of Russia and Susan SUGARMAN of Lithuania. Educated at Lisgar Collegiate and St. Patrick's College (now Carleton University), where he received his B.S. Sc., he then moved to Toronto, where he was named editor of the now-defunct publication Magazine Digest.
In 1941, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a radar mech., serving in the Eastern Air Command and, later, overseas with the Royal Air Force. Returning to Canada after the war, Sid continued his education at the University of Toronto, obtaining a M.S.W. (Master of Social Work), specializing in psychiatry. He later received a Diploma in Alcohol and Drug Addiction from Yale University.
Having married Ottawa-born journalist Dorothy SANGSTER while on leave during the war, the couple settled in Toronto. Sid joined the staff of Macleans Magazine as a feature writer, gaining national acclaim for his numerous articles over a period of fifteen years, including his breakthrough 1954 article "I Was a Madman for Twelve Hours", the first detailed, first-person account in a general magazine of the effects of the hallucinogenic drug LSD, given to Sidney under the supervision of Doctor Humphrey Osmond in Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
Sid later joined the Toronto Star, where he was a feature writer and columnist, specializing in issues of mental health, mental illness, and social and behavioural problems. Retiring early from the Star, he continued his career as a freelance journalist and broadcaster as well as acting as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Western Ontario's Graduate School of Journalism, and authoring the book The Divided Woman.
His concern about Canadians with special needs often led to the establishment of organizations designed to help them, including the Non-Smokers' Rights Association, Parent Finders, The Patients' Rights Association and the Allergy Information Association. He was actively involved in several other groups, including those dealing with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and gay rights, and as a member of the Conference on Aging's planning committee and of the executive planning committee of the Ontario Consultation on Youth.
Sidney received numerous awards for his work, including the City of Toronto Civic Award, the Canadian Mental Health Award, Metro Police Award, the University of Western Ontario's President's Medal (twice), the Canadian Education Conference Award, Canadian Nurses Association Award, Allergy Information Association Award, the Ohio State University Award, and ten Maclean-Hunter Awards for editorial excellence.
Sidney is survived by his wife Dorothy, son Jeremy, sisters Esther (Mrs. Irving ROBINSON) of Toronto and Miriam (Mrs. Lou WEINER) of Ottawa, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his son Stephen in 1989.
The family would like to express its sincere appreciation to the staff of Sunnybrook Hospital's K Wing (Veterans) and Dialysis Unit for their wonderful care over the past several years.
A private family service was held at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. Friends may call at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W. (2 stop lights west of Yonge St.) on Wednesday September 26 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Sunnybrook or The Kidney Foundation.
