McNAMARA, Helen
Jazz columnist, author, artist, broadcaster. Born November 30, 1919, in Galt, Ontario Died December 23, 2007, in Toronto of complications from Parkinson's disease, aged 88.
By Barbara KLICH, Page L8
Those who knew Helen McNAMARA, whether as a jazz columnist with the Toronto Telegram, a broadcaster with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the author of The Bands Canadians Danced To or a quiet artist who produced landscapes, portraits and still lifes, always marvelled at her spirit.
Although she was only five feet tall and had suffered polio as a child, Helen was a giant in her field. She was also a pioneer, covering jazz in the nightclubs of Toronto and beyond at a time when few women did that type of reporting.
Helen's writing career began in the 1940s. Her first regular column, McNamara's Bandwagon, appeared in the Toronto Telegram on January 22, 1949, the same day that her close friend Alex BARRIS launched his column in The Globe and Mail.
The world of jazz became Helen's passion. She wrote for England's Melody Maker, Canadian Composer, Jazz Panorama and others. The greats of the day, from Duke Ellington to Count Basie to Jimmy Rushing, became not only important subjects in her columns but lifelong Friends. While American stars earned her attention she was always ready to bring the work of Canadian musicians and singers to the forefront.
Suffering from Parkinson's disease, Helen spent the last 16 years in a long-term care facility. Over that period many musicians and Friends came to visit. In 1997, her dear Friends Alex BARRIS and Billy O'Connor presented a tribute concert with an all-star salute that featured Oscar Peterson, Peter Appleyard, Guido Basso, Jim Galloway, Moe Koffman, Rob McConnell and Phil Nimmons in a night of outstanding jazz.
Helen never married, but her role as a beloved aunt to many nieces and nephews was of great importance to her. She took them to concerts, introduced them to musicians, shared her music collection and, as one nephew said, never criticized them.
She had a sense of justice and a wonderful sense of humour that was never cutting but always sharp. In the days when clubs shut around midnight and were closed on Sundays, Helen would often invite out-of-town musicians to the family home for after-hours meals. Her mother, Beatrice, would have a huge pot of chili on the stove to serve with loaves of warm bread, and her father, Joe, would be ready with liquid refreshments for the jazz stars.
Helen's life was an inspiration to her family and her admirers. Even though she wore a leg brace and carried a cane all her life, people only saw, in the words of Duke Ellington, a "sophisticated lady."
Helen died the same day as her friend Oscar Peterson. Their funerals were also held on the same day. Fittingly, a rendition of his Hymn to Freedom was played for her in farewell at her funeral.
Barbara KLICH is Helen's sister.

KLING, Sidney
Professor emeritus, teacher, author, mentor, husband, father, grandfather, Renaissance man. Born November 14, 1922, in Toronto. Died April 14 in Toronto of heart failure, aged 85.
By Adam FUERSTENBERG, Page L6
Sid KLING had many passions, two especially: He loved teaching and Florida. He merged these passions at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute when, in addition to teaching courses in urban studies and geography, he became an authority in retirement studies. He had studied with Max Kaplan, renowned director of leisure studies at the University of South Florida, and became a Canadian pioneer in this field.
At Ryerson, Sid developed and taught a course on vacationing and retiring in Florida. It became one of the most popular evening courses because of his witty illustrations and hard-nosed advice about the pitfalls of investing in Florida. The course's popularity led him to publish two bestselling books on the subject, which also appeared in French.
Co-operatives were another of Sid's passions, in particular co-operative housing as a solution to constant rent inflation before rent control in Toronto. He became a consulted authority on the subject and lived in and helped to run one of the best such co-op apartments.
Sidney, born near the "Ward," the predominantly Jewish area of pre-First World War Toronto, was the son of immigrants from Galicia, which is now part of Poland. His father, Oscar, had learned watchmaking in London, and in Toronto he and his wife, Anna, opened a jewellery store at Yonge and Gerrard streets.
Sid graduated from Oakwood Collegiate in 1941 and enlisted. After military service during the Second World War, where he had done some mapping, he decided to attend the University of Toronto and became a geographer. As part of his graduate studies, Sid spent more than a year in the early 1950s doing research and studying in Havana at the same university attended then by the young Fidel Castro. It was this sojourn in Cuba that resulted in Sid's lifelong attraction to the Caribbean and his love of Cuban cigars. Students and colleagues used to joke that you could find Prof. KLING by following the cigar smoke.
After his father's passing, Sid tried to manage the jewellery store, then converted it into a camera store, photography and cameras being another of his interests. However, his real talent was teaching. He first taught at the University of Toronto in Scarborough, then joined the new geography department at Ryerson.
A multifaceted man, Sid learned - during one of his longer stays in Florida - how to build and play the dulcimer, and he was also a skillful gourmet cook. Most of all, he was always good company. Married a second time in 1974, he leaves behind Elvereene, his wife and best friend, his son Waynne, four grandchildren and generations of appreciative students.
Adam FUERSTENBERG is Sidney's friend.
