John McMULKIN, 92: Steelmaker
Engineer 'was a giant of the Canadian steel industry'
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Events that transpired following a research trip to Austria in the early 1950s turned a Hamilton-based inquiring metallurgical engineer into a pioneer of modern steelmaking. Called "the father of oxygen steelmaking in North America," John McMULKIN convinced the managers of Dofasco in 1954 to invest in a new process that would not only catapult the company into a major Canadian steelmaker, but at the same time revolutionize the industry.
As the inaugural head of Dofasco's research department, he travelled the world in search of new technologies. Aware that Austria and Germany had been developing techniques to use oxygen in the steelmaking process during the Second World War, he decided to visit Austria in the early 1950s to see what it was all about.
"He realized it [the technology] was going to be a breakthrough," said Norm LOCKINGTON, retired vice-president of research at Dofasco (now called ArcelorMittal Dofasco).
Like most North American steel firms at that time, Dofasco was using an open-hearth furnace to make steel. In that process, carbon-rich molten iron is burned in gigantic open hearths for hours to allow the carbon to burn off and produce steel. In contrast, Austrian steelmakers had discovered that pure oxygen blown into the furnace at a high pressure dramatically accelerated the process. What would take up to 16 hours to produce in the old open hearths took half an hour in the oxygen furnace, Mr. LOCKINGTON said.
Mr. McMULKIN returned to Canada excited by what he had witnessed in Austria and was impatient to try it at home. He ran trials at the plant in Hamilton and successfully persuaded his superiors at Dofasco to install a basic oxygen furnace in 1954. When the furnace churned out its first batch of steel, Dofasco became the first company to apply the technology outside of Europe. "Within 10 years, steelmaking had changed," Mr. LOCKINGTON said. Before long, companies across the United States were knocking at Dofasco's door, anxious to learn how they too could implement the new technology.
The oxygen furnaces - which today stand five storeys high and hold enough steel to make 200 cars - remain the common standard for steelmaking around the world. More than half of Dofasco's steelmaking today comes from an oxygen furnace and the remainder from an electric arc furnace.
"He was a giant of the Canadian steel industry," said Gordon IRONS, director of McMaster University's Steel Research Centre. "He put Dofasco on the map. Before he came along they were a small company, but they became a large, successful company that put a great emphasis on research and development."
Raised in the steelmaking city of Sault Ste. Marie in Northern Ontario, John McMULKIN was an only child. His father was the well-regarded owner of a dry-goods store who was also active in local politics. After receiving a scholarship, young John headed off to the Michigan College of Mining and Technology, where he studied metallurgical engineering.
After graduation, he returned home to work at Algoma Steel. He later joined the Ontario Research Foundation in Toronto, where, during the war years, he worked on plate welding for light armoured vehicles. In 1945, at Toronto's Deer Park United Church badminton club, Mr. McMULKIN met his future wife, Margaret. A year later they were married.
Immediately following the war, he went to Dofasco in Hamilton on a research fellowship. A year later, he joined its staff and was asked to start up a research department. By his retirement in 1985, he had 80 people working with him.
"He was a one-person research department in the early days. He could just make things happen in a hurry," Mr. LOCKINGTON said. "He was sometimes frustrated that things couldn't happen as fast as they did in the early days."
While some considered him gruff or impatient, everyone respected his knowledge of the industry, his dedication to his job and his intelligence. "He had an inquiring mind and a very brilliant mind," said his wife, Margaret McMULKIN.
While basic oxygen steelmaking remained the crowning achievement of his career, Mr. McMULKIN would go on to make other major improvements in steelmaking. Under his guidance, Dofasco became the first company in Canada to add an electrolytic tinning line used to make tin-plated steel for tin cans. He is also credited for developing Dofasco's mining properties.
While he retired in the mid-1980s, he continued to stay abreast of new advances in steelmaking. He often visited his old office and still felt connected to the company. As much as he was fascinated by the science of steelmaking, he liked people just as much. "He was the kind of person who saw it as his role to mentor young people," Mr. LOCKINGTON said.
Aside from being awarded an honorary doctor of engineering degree from the Michigan Technological University, Mr. McMULKIN also received almost every award available from steelmaking industry associations.
Francis John McMULKIN was born on December 7, 1915, in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario He died February 18, 2008, of prostate cancer. He was 92. He leaves his wife, Margaret, and children Bruce and Mary McMULKIN.

McMURRAY--In loving memory of Lestie McMURRAY who passed away August 4, 2003.
Look around your garden Lord,
She won't be hard to find,
She has a face that's full of love,
And a heart that's good and kind,
Tell her that we love her,
And when she turns and smiles,
Put your arms around her Lord,
And hold her for a while,
We talk about you often,
We think about her still,
She hasn't been forgotten Lord,
And never, ever will.
Lovingly remembered by Doug and family.

CAMPBELL, Ronald McLachlan
Ron's last flight left Victoria at 2220 Thursday, March 13, 2008. The first child of "Sandy" Alexander McLachlan and "Lil" Christian CAMPBELL, Ron was born in Calgary, Alberta on May 29th, 1915. Due to the demands of the First World War, Sandy registered his elder son's birth as the 30th of May - perhaps that explains why Ron was usually early and never late.
Ron was predeceased by his beloved "Pudding", his adored wife of over 60 years, Phyllis Sara CAMPBELL in 2006. His brother Ken and sister Betty also predeceased him. His passing leaves a deep hole in the lives of his children of the heart, Hilarie McMURRAY and her partner Jack LITWINOWICH of Victoria and Steveston, British Columbia, Bill McMURRAY, his wife Mary and their children Scott and Elspeth of Senneville Quebec. His nieces of the heart Joanne TUSTIN of Victoria and Debbie TUSTIN of Duncan grieve the loss of their Uncle Ron. Also left to mourn are his baby sister Margaret STEVENSON of San Diego, California, his sister-in-law Helen CAMPBELL of Victoria, his cousin Bea WARD of Sidney, his brother-in-law Alan KIMBER and his wife Roberta of Lethbridge, Alberta and Ron's special Friends Bruce and Carol Gowans of Calgary, Alberta and long time friend George McMurray of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Ron leaves many Campbell and Kimber nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews across Canada and the United States.
Ron was a pioneer of Canadian aviation, graduating in 1933 from the first Aircraft Maintenance course at the then Provincial Institute of Technology and Art in Calgary (now SAIT). He and his friend Sheldon Luck made the first night flight over the Rockies in 1935 from Williams Lake to Calgary - Ron struck and held the long Eddy matches so Sheldon the pilot could see the compass in their single engine Puss Moth. Ron went on to a stellar career with Trans Canada Airlines and Air Canada. After Ron won the heart of the prettiest load agent in Canada, Phyllis KIMBER, they were married in Montreal in January 1946. Ron and Phyllis had a wonderful life together in Montreal and Toronto and Victoria - it was in Toronto in the 1950s that they first spoiled Hilarie and Bill McMURRAY which began a lifetime of unconditional love and support. After leading the team to introduce the 747 to the Air Canada fleet, Ron retired from Air Canada in 1975. That same year Phyllis and Ron drove across the country to their new home in Broadmead. Together, they travelled the world, visiting the then Soviet Union in the 1970s and taking two trips to China in the 1980s.
Ron was an old fashioned gentleman, always impeccably dressed and unfailingly polite - we will hold in our hearts and our memories the image of Ron's beautiful smile and his tip of the hat.
The family would like to thank the incredible staff of RP1 at the Royal Jubilee Hospital for their loving care over the last 5 weeks. For the past year Ron enjoyed his life at The Peninsula in Sidney, British Columbia - his caregivers were wonderful, in particular Ian. Thank you. And a special thanks to Chris Chilton and Anne Moon for being such good Friends to Ron.
There will be no service at Ron's request. Later this year, Ron and Phyllis will be buried together in the Kimber family plot in Lethbridge, Alberta. If you wish, the family would appreciate memorial donations to the Salvation Army or to The Mustard Seed Food Bank.
