Milt DUNNELL, 102: Journalist
By James CHRISTIE, Page S8
The thing that always left Milt DUNNELL's co-workers and competitors shaking their heads was history. Most of them had to look up information on sport's landmark events and personalities. When Milt talked history, it was usually firsthand, eyewitness stuff.
Joe DiMaggio wasn't in a newsreel, he was in Mr. DUNNELL's notebook. So was Don Larsen's perfect game pitched for the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series; Northern Dancer's Kentucky Derby win in 1964; and Muhammad Ali's Thrilla in Manila in 1975.
The long-time sports editor of the Toronto Star lived 102 years and spent 52 of them writing columns for Canada's largest distribution daily - all the way back to when the Toronto Maple Leafs were winning Stanley Cups for founder Conn Smythe.
It only figured he would chronicle history. He lived through the world's most turbulent times. The day he was born in December, 1905, the newspapers carried a story of slaughter in Moscow during the Russian Revolution, with horse-mounted dragoons riding over students and slashing them down after they'd raised a white flag. The sports page was considerably more sedate, mainly horse racing and some bizarrely disjointed notes on New Zealand footballers, the Hamilton Tigers' rugby football budget, the hiring of two new umpires and the fact that "Mrs. Fitzsimmons has deserted her pugilistic husband."
The world changed during the DUNNELL years and Mr. DUNNELL, with admirable and simple elegance, chronicled the changes in the sports corner. A young reporter, coming into the business 35 years ago at The Globe and Mail, said he was aiming to be like the paper's columnist, the witty, flashy clotheshorse Dick Beddoes. A veteran pulled him aside and counselled him: "If you read Beddoes every day, you might be entertained, but if you read Milt you'll learn something every day."
The first thing one learned from the DUNNELL style was that his influence and his big talent weren't accompanied by a big ego. He would call out athletes for substandard and indifferent performances, but Mr. DUNNELL didn't need to be the star of the show. His columns were never about himself and he eschewed using the pronoun "I."
He didn't brand himself with the fright-house wardrobe of Mr. Beddoes or the ever-present stogie of sports columnist Jim Coleman. In fact, Mr. DUNNELL never smoked or swore or drank in a business where those three vices are endemic. Those who worked for him describe him as the boss they always wanted.
"The respect was mutual. We had respect for him and he respected that we knew how to do our jobs," says The Globe's Larry MILLSON, who worked for Mr. DUNNELL in the 1970s. "With every boss since him, it's like going over a precipice, in comparison."
Mr. DUNNELL was good to colleagues despite the competitive newspaper environment. Mr. MILLSON recalled that when he crossed over from the Star to The Globe, he was dispatched to the 1976 Kentucky Derby. When he arrived he learned that The Globe's sports editor Jim VIPOND had reserved his hotel room but hadn't arranged his credentials. "I showed up at the track and had no pass, and Milt saw me there and took me to the man in charge of the press box and vouched for me. He could have just left the competition in its own mess."
It was the second kindness he'd done a Globe writer that year. At the 1976 Super Bowl in Miami, Christie Blatchford had brought a wardrobe of T-shirts and skimpy shoes, anticipating warm weather. Instead, a severe cold snap hit. Mr. DUNNELL took off his suit jacket and put it around the shivering shoulders of the opposition.
Milt DUNNELL worked until he was almost 89, finally retiring in 1994, though he'd reached retirement age 24 years earlier. He was a member of four different sports Halls of Fame and possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of just about every game - and that included blackjack. Though slowed by arthritis, he spent part of his retirement at the blackjack tables at Casino Rama, befuddling dealers even as a sharp-minded centenarian.
Milton William Ryan DUNNELL was born in Saint Marys, Ontario, on December 24, 1905. He died in Toronto on January 3, 2008. He was 102. He was predeceased by his wife Dorothy PIGEON, who died in 1994. He is survived by his sons Milton Jr., of Toronto and Michael of Windsor, Ontario He also leaves three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

She turned the Gardiner Museum into a glittering, priceless gem
With the help of her wealthy stockbroker husband, she transformed a hobby into a great ceramics collection, and then built a museum to house it all opposite Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
Museum founder and philanthropist Helen GARDINER had three lives: before George, during George, and after George. The George was George Ryerson GARDINER, a business integrator, Harvard MBA and stockbroker who founded Gardiner Group Capital, the country's first discount brokerage, and was president of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Generally considered a business genius, he was a pioneer in the oil-and-gas business, opened the first airport hotel in Canada, was a key player in bringing Kentucky Fried Chicken north of the 49th parallel, established Gardiner Farms, the racing stable and breeding farm, and was one of the original members of the syndicate that owned Northern Dancer. "He didn't start with nothing," a former business associate said, "but he multiplied it many times over."
Ms. GARDINER, by contrast, came from humble circumstances, and was a single parent working as a secretary in Mr. GARDINER's brokerage firm when they met. With Mr. GARDINER's support, she became a mature student at York University and took the decorative arts course at Christie's in London, England. Having acquired professional expertise - her impeccable eye for quality was innate - she and her husband amassed a huge and very valuable collection of porcelain and earthenware, then built a museum to house it.
Nevertheless, he was always the public face and voice of the Gardiner Museum. After Mr. GARDINER died in December, 1997, she emerged as a fundraiser, philanthropist and connoisseur who transformed the Gardiner from a mausoleum for a private collection into a dynamic, innovative and internationally prized museum. She also developed her own interests in the National Ballet School and other art forms such as opera, becoming so fond of Wagner's Ring Cycle that she was known as a "Ring" addict.
"The Gardiner Museum was her No. 1 passion, but the National Ballet School was a close second," said Margaret McCain, former chair of the board of the National Ballet School and former lieutenant-governor of New Brunswick.
"Helen had moral integrity and she also had a lot of fortitude," said Ms. McCain, describing her friend as fun with a wonderful laugh and a complete lack of pretension. "She was grounded and she was able to hold on to her own identity even if she was in George's shadow for a long time. There was a strength there and I used to say, 'You are your own person, kind and gentle, but strong inside.' "
Tony ARRELL, a former Chief Executive Officer of Gardiner Watson and a director of Gardiner Group Capital said: "When you have a tree growing under a big tree, the big tree shades the little tree, but when you take the big tree out, the little tree can grow up - and that is what has been happening with Helen. She has proven to be a stronger character with a greater ability than many people thought," he said. "There has been a lot more to Helen GARDINER in the last 10 years than we ever knew before."
Helen Elizabeth McMINN was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, the year before the Second World War began. Her father Charles was a carpenter at one of the gold mines, while her mother Helen was a homemaker. The McMinns moved south to Toronto, where Mr. McMINN worked for General Electric at its Davenport Works until he retired. Their two children, Helen and Bob, went to high school in Toronto, and then Bob joined the military. Helen's daughter Lindy BARROW, who was born in 1958, lived with her grandparents until she was 10 while Ms. McMINN, a single parent, worked at various jobs in advertising and as a legal secretary to support her daughter and save enough money to provide a home for them both.
In the second half of the 1960s, she met George GARDINER when she was hired as a secretary at Gardiner Watson, the stock brokerage that he and a partner had founded just after the Second World War. At the time, she was in her late 20s and Mr. GARDINER (who was known to enjoy, discreetly, the company of beautiful women) was in his early 50s, married and the father of three children. Not long before, in July, 1965, his formidable father Percy, a financier, had died of a heart attack. This death may have liberated Mr. GARDINER, who had had a fractious relationship with his father and had always felt the need to show that he could be even more successful in business.
"He once said that Helen was the first person that he laid eyes on as he was coming out from under this oppression that he had been under for so many years," according to Gretchen ROSS, a long-time friend. Their relationship led to the breakup of Mr. GARDINER's marriage.
In the mid-1970s, they moved into a house on Old Forest Hill Road in Toronto. He bought the property, razed the existing house and built a new one with lead-lined walls - he had acute hearing and didn't want to be disturbed by the neighbours. Mr. GARDINER and his first wife had bought some pre-Colombian earthenware in South America, and he decided that he and Ms. McMINN should "collect something unique to make our house look lived in," she said later. He wanted it to have "quality, individuality and his personal stamp." Naively, as she later admitted, they hit on ceramics.
Two years later, inflation was escalating. Mr. GARDINER, an astute and thrifty businessman, read an article asserting that Chinese and European porcelain were outperforming stocks, bonds and real estate, and he decided it was time to turn their hobby into an investment. Helen, who had been studying as a mature student at York University since 1974, switched tacks and went to London in 1978 to take Christie's Fine Arts Course. A year later, she was both an expert and a qualified dealer who could buy ceramics at wholesale prices.
Their first mature purchase was a hand-painted, highly decorated yellow tea-and-chocolate service made in 1740 by Meissen, the earliest factory in Europe to produce hard-paste porcelain. On the advice of a Sotheby's porcelain expert, Helen had gone to see the 50-piece set, complete with its original leather travelling case, at Winifred Williams Antiques on Bury Street in London. She persuaded Mr. GARDINER to look at the Meissen service and to meet dealer Robert Williams. Without telling her, he bought the service. And so the Gardiners began their long association with Mr. Williams and transformed themselves into serious collectors. As she said later, "Bob taught me how to really look at things. He was generous with his knowledge and showed me how to identify artists and factories by the distinctive characteristics of their work."
From Meissen, the couple began accumulating works made by Du Paquier, the second factory in Europe to produce hard-paste porcelain in the 18th century, and pieces called Hausmaler, a term used to describe ceramics decorated by studio artists who painted or redecorated porcelain produced by factories such as Meissen or Du Paquier. As always, they kept a judicious eye on their passions and their bottom line, collecting Du Paquier because it was undervalued, and Hausmaler for its variety, eccentric charm and the stories about subterfuge, espionage and larceny swirling around the pieces - how artists "acquired" undecorated wares from the studios that employed them and then painted them with their own designs.
During her Christie's course in London, Helen was seduced by the lush sensual colours and painterly decoration of Italian Maiolica. She took Mr. GARDINER to see the Maiolica collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington and he too was entranced. Encouraged by a lull in the market for Maiolica, Mr. GARDINER began buying at auction or through their retinue of international dealers.
By the early 1980s, the Gardiners - they had married on July 11, 1981, at least a dozen years after they first met - were running out of display and storage room in their home. With the help of entertainment lawyer and ceramics collector Aaron MILRAD, the determined and persuasive Mr. GARDINER set about acquiring the land and the political approvals to establish his own museum. In 1981, the Ontario government, led by premier Bill Davis, unanimously passed Bill 183 to create The George R. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art as an independent, public institution. Doctor Murray Ross helped the Gardiners acquire a tennis court on the east side of Queen's Park, directly opposite the Royal Ontario Museum, from the University of Toronto. Mr. GARDINER paid $500,000 to lease the land for 99 years.
Three years later, architect Keith WAGLAND and designer Robert MEIKELJOHN's $6-million building was ready. The George R. Gardiner Museum, showcasing some 3,000 objets valued at between $16-million and $25-million from the Gardiners' personal collection, officially opened on Saturday, March 3, 1984, with an additional $2.5-million operating grant from its benefactors to celebrate the occasion.
Initially, the Gardiners were as naive about operating a museum as they had been about ceramics. They didn't have nearly enough staff, went through three directors in their first year and underestimated their operating and exhibition costs. After unsuccessfully petitioning the Liberal provincial government for more money, the museum was advised by premier David Peterson to merge with the Royal Ontario Museum in 1987. "I have learned it is very, very difficult to compete with other museums," Mr. GARDINER, a man known for his independence, said at an emotional press conference called to announce the merger.
"The government decided we needed the Royal Ontario Museum's management expertise," Ms. GARDINER told The Globe in 2006. But it wasn't always a comfortable relationship. For an independent museum to be put under the control of another much larger one was akin to an adult daughter moving back into her parents' house with her children after a messy divorce.
The Royal Ontario Museum saw the Gardiner as an adjunct, housing yet another of its many collections, but the Gardiner longed to flex its curatorial wings. Mr. GARDINER, who was succeeded as chair of the board by his wife in 1994, bought back the museum's independence with a $15-million endowment (raising his investment in his own museum to about $50-million). It was announced in January, 1997, just 11 months before Mr. GARDINER died of complications from arthritis and heart disease.
The strain of caring for her husband in his last years when he was ill and "difficult" and dealing with his estate after his death made her so nervous that her throat muscles tightened up and she had trouble speaking above a whisper, Ms. Ross said. It was only recently that doctors found a solution - periodic shots of Botox and a regime of throat exercises - that enabled Ms. GARDINER to speak normally again.
In the decade of her widowhood, Ms. GARDINER threw herself into the museum and into the National Ballet School, where she had sat on the board since 1990. "She invested a lot more than money - she invested herself in the life of the school and the lives of the students," said Ms. McCain. "She took on a student and stayed with that student and became a mentor and a guide and a friend."
Under Ms. GARDINER's direction, the museum built up its membership lists again and stretched beyond the personal vision of its founders. The Gardiner began accepting other collections, such as Doctor Hans Syz's German porcelain and Murray and Ann Bell's trove of Chinese blue-and-white porcelain. It expanded its mandate to include modern and contemporary pieces from collectors, such as Mr. MILRAD, and began organizing exhibitions of work by living artists.
Ms. GARDINER was chair until 1999 and vice-chair for the next two years, during which time the museum received a Lieutenant-Governor's Award for the Arts for building private sector and community support, showing fiscal responsibility and expanding its audience (from 20,000 to 60,000 visitors annually), using pottery classes for children and exhibitions such as Maya Universe, Miro: Playing with Fire and Harlequin Unmasked. In 2002, she accepted the position of honorary chair and led the museum's fundraising and expansion campaign to raise $12.8-million from the private sector, in addition to $6-million in grants from the Ontario and Canadian governments.
The museum closed from 2004 to 2006 for a nearly $20-million renovation undertaken by Kuwabara, Payne, McKenna and Blumberg Architects. The renovation added a glass-encased third floor, restaurant and roof terraces, increased exhibition space by 50 per cent, added a research library and expanded the museum shop and the basement studio to accommodate artists in residence and more pottery classes.
"In the last 10 years, she started to develop her own interests and her own ability to reach out for things that she would never have looked at before. And then she got sick," said Mr. MILRAD, vice-chair of the board. "She had an integrity that was recognized and it is going to be extremely difficult for us to raise the kind of money that she was able to raise through her contacts and her own strength of character."
Falling terminally ill was a shock to Ms. GARDINER, who had always planned to live well into her 90s, just as her mother has done. In the first week of May, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After seeking treatment at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Ms. GARDINER began a rigorous course of chemotherapy. But she soon decided to suspend treatment, since it wasn't working and it was making her feel very ill. Instead, she let "nature take its course," as she told her Friends and family.
Helen Elizabeth GARDINER, C.M., was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, on July 18, 1938. She died of pancreatic cancer at the family farm in Caledon East on July 22, 2008. She was 70. Predeceased by husband George GARDINER, she is survived by daughter Lindy BARROW, mother Helen McMINN, brother Bob McMINN and extended family.
The funeral will take place on Monday, July 28, at 11 a.m. in Toronto's Saint_James Cathedral.

Those of us who knew and love David will not dishonor his memory with cliché and sentiment. Let it just be said that in his absence there is a hole in the world that will never be filled.

To strike a conventional note: David is survived by his cherished daughter Meghan and his baby granddaughter Ivy Rose RIENHARDT, by his son Lliam, whom he loved so much, and (yet another) baby granddaughter Isabel Marie, by Anne BROMLEY, Meghan and Lliam's mother and David's former wife, whom he admired and loved to the end of his life, by his beloved brother and sister Tim and Ardra, by Tim's daughter Alex and finally by his adoring and grateful twin spirit of over thirty years, Barbie NICHOL.
And by Mister Brown.
For those with a mind to, the family would be so thankful for any memories you might think of to put on paper. There will be a place to leave these notes at the Memorial.
The Memorial Service will be held at Trinity-St Paul United Church (427 Bloor Street West) at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 6th, with a wake afterwards at Sarah and Tom MILROY's house at 73 Linwood Ave.
