astound. It 
can confound. It forces reflection, adjustment and action. "It" is that 
inevitable force: change. 

UCC has undergone a major change with the recent departure of 
J. Douglas Blakey, principal for more than a decade and a UCC teacher 
since 1975. Environmentalist, innovator and great champion of UCC, Doug Blakey was 
a leader who was willing to take the risks involved in prompting change, and progress, 
at UCC. 

Taking over the helm as of August 2004 is Dr. Jim Power, UCC's 18th principal 
and the first to come to us from the United States. Thoughtful, learned and engaging, 
he is a man who doesn't appear to take himself too seriously. However, he's an edu- 
cator who clearly takes boys' learning very seriously. This issue of Old Times provides 
a glimpse of the background, outlook and self-effacing humour of the man who will 
help shape the future of your alma mater. 

Jim Power assumes the key post at an exciting time — as the community cele- 
brates the 175th anniversary of the school's founding. From 1829 to today, the 
changes UCC has undergone are, indeed, astounding. UCC is now a "younger" school, 
offering full-time programs for students from Senior Kindergarten to those working on 
their International Baccalaureate Diploma. The introduction of the IB itself marked a 
significant change to the UCC curriculum and approach to education. The IB also 
reflects how UCC is a more "international" school than the one Sir John Colbome 
founded in 1829. This past school year, our boarding program welcomed students 
from 18 countries: Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, the United States, Pakistan, 
Hungary, Germany, Bangladesh and China, to name just a few. Those of you who 
haven't visited UCC in many years might be delighted to discover the nurturing, 
vibrant and encouraging atmosphere that today's students enjoy. 

If you want a first-hand view of some of the changes that UCC has undergone 
over the years — or if you'd like to reminisce about bygone days — come out to 
Association Day, October 2, 2004. Alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff are 
busy putting together an Association Day that will honour the past and the present of 
UCC as we look toward a promising future. 

We'll continue our anniversary celebrations in the next issue of Old Times, which 
will be a special 175th anniversary edition. That commemorative issue, to be pub- 
lished in February 2005, will feature 175 Old Boys who have made a difference in the 
school, the country or the world. Changes to Old Times are ongoing: last year, we 
increased its publication from once a year to twice per year (adding a winter/spring 
issue), and we hope you notice that this latest issue is more colourful than ever. 

As George Bernard Shaw wrote, "Progress is impossible without change." When 
it comes to change, you might embrace it, or you might abhor it. Just give it a chance 
before you decide.

On August i, 2004, Dr. James Power — he prefers "Jim" — became UCC's 
i8th principal. You'll have plenty of opportunities to meet the new 

principal in the months ahead there's association day, october 2, 

2004, the UCC Community Meeting, October 13, 2004, and Founder's 
Dinner, February 2, 2005, to name just a few. Meantime, this Old Times 
q&a gives you a glimpse of the new man on campus. 



A native of Philadelphia, Pa., Jim Power was 
most recently headmaster of Georgetown 
Preparatory School, a boys' school in North 
Bethesda, Md. He obtained his bachelor's 
degree in English from the College of the 
Holy Cross, in Massachusetts, and spent his 
junior year at Trinity College, in Dublin, 
Ireland. He has a master's degree in the art 
of teaching, from Boston College, and a 
doctorate in educational leadership from 
Boston University. 

His wife, Mary Power, has a master's 
degree in public health from Harvard 
University. 

The Powers have five children: Bridget 
(14), who enters Grade 9 this fall; and sons 
Patrick (12), Seamus (10), Liam (8) and 
Aidan (6), who will attend the Prep. 



)im Power took up residence at Grant 
House on August 1, 2004. 



OLD TIMES 2 SUMMER/FALL 2004 







Q: What are your friends and colleagues at Georgetown Prep going to miss most 

AND LEAST ABOUT YOU? 

A: The least: We had a weekly faculty basketball game, and I used to get "torched" on a regular basis. So I don't 
think my teammates will miss me on the hardwood. 

The most: They may miss my coffee pot. I was the resident brew master, and I had a good number of folks 
who would pop into my office on a regular basis, because they claimed they wanted to chat. But I knew they 
were really just after my Java. 

Q: Now that you've been to Canada a few times, what are some of the cultural 

DIFFERENCES YOU NOTICE BETWEEN AMERICANS AND CANADIANS? 

A; Canadians know a lot more about hockey and the War of 1812 than do Americans! A lot more! I think after a 
few more months here, I will be able to write a doctoral thesis on both subjects. More seriously, my impres- 
sions are that Canadians are more international in their outlook, a little more reserved, and very caring and 
empathetic toward others. Those are such wonderful qualities to have as a backdrop in raising kids. I have had 
a chance to travel across the country and have been touched by the hospitality and patience everyone has 
given to me in crossing the cultural (and hockey) divide. 

At the same time, America has instilled in me a sense of optimism and what you might call the Horatio 
Alger belief — that regardless of how humble your origins, you can do whatever you want if you are willing 
to work hard enough. But for now, on Canadian relations, I just want to listen more than editorialize. These 
are very anxious and important times in the world, and this has to have an impact on our students. I think it 
is most important that we give our kids the tools to think, to question, and make up their own minds. If, by 
growing up in the U.S., I can add another perspective to the dialogue, that would be a wonderful start. 

Ql Do YOU THINK BEING AN AMERICAN WILL AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND 
OUR SCHOOL? 

Al The most important thing in walking into any new school is to take the time to understand the boys, the 
teachers, the school community and the school culture. Every school is unique. I think we are all shaped by 
how and where we grew up, and I believe my experience at Georgetown Prep will be a help. When I sit in 
meetings at UCC, I see the staff wrestle with the same issues we did at GP. 
At some level, boys are boys. However, far more important than where I 

come from is that I've spent a lot of time thinking about the 

challenges of teaching and raising boys, so that they become 

men of what I call the Four C's: competence, conscience, 

courage and compassion. This is something that can only be 

achieved with a lot of listening, patience, and help from the 

whole school community. 

ql a lot of famous comedians are canadian 
(e.g., Mike Myers, Jim Carrey). What 
makes you laugh? 

A: Mike Myers is a hoot. My kids really make me laugh, 
too. Today, for instance, in the car, I heard them 
practising a "rap" they had written. I don't think 
they're in any danger of winning American Idol or 
Canadian Idol any time soon, but they did give me 
a few yucks. I also like Woody Allen movies, especially 
his older ones, where he is able to poke fun at some 
of the pretensions of life. 

Q: Dog person or Cat person? 

A: Fenway is our three-year-old chocolate lab. Like the 
baseball team to which he's linked, we're always hoping 
that next year will be a better year.

OLD TIMES 3 SUMMER/FALL 2004 



Q: When you were a student, what were your 

BEST SUBJECTS? AND YOUR WORST? 

A: I had a couple of absolutely terrific English teachers, and 
these men had a profound impact on my life. I became an 
English major because of their direction, and their influence 
may have steered me back into a career in the classroom, too. 
I know it's cliche, but I believe that teachers can and do make 
a difference. 

On the flip side, I was a lousy math student — even on 
my best days. 

Q: Which sports do you play? 

A: I was on the swimming and baseball teams in school. I swam, 
though, only because I got cut from the basketball team. (It's 
still a vivid and oh-so-painful memory!) I did end up playing 
basketball for a year when I was a student at Trinity College, 
Dublin. (Basketball in Europe has gotten a lot better since 
1979!) These days, I play a little tennis, a little hoops, and a 
lot of whiffle ball with my sons. I think I've finally mastered 
the knuckle ball. 

Q: What are your feelings about single-sex 

EDUCATION? 

A: I spent my sabbatical year working at my daughter's school, 
and it is clear that educating boys and girls is a very different 
practice. I think UCC has settled into a very special position 
in that it is a boys' school by tradition and conviction. The 
latest educational research shows that boys are now falling 
behind in schools at an alarming rate. They also have higher 
incidences of ADHD and learning-style challenges, and they 
also learn subjects like math differently — not to mention 
they have a difficult time sitting still! 

I see the UCC commitment to boys as a very positive 
opportunity to be on the leading edge of boys' education, not 
just in Canada, but around the world. As a school that is 
positioned to be a leader in the education of boys, I also 
think we have a responsibility to share and collaborate with 
others to really push the field of boys' learning forward at a 
critical time. Fortunately, I am following an outstanding 
principal like Doug Blakey So much of the infrastructure is 
already in place. 

Boys' education is more than a job for me. With four sons 
of my own, it really is a lifetime commitment. Raising boys 
is a constant challenge between nurturing their confidence, 
providing clear boundaries, and setting high expectations. 
It's the ying and the yang between affirming and challenging 
them. There is no formula; it is really an art. 

Q: What is the one quality you most admire 

IN A BOY? 

A: It's great to work with boys who are open, honest, humble 
and able to reach out to others. Every boy will make mistakes 
from time to time, but it's so much easier to help a boy grow 
through these issues if he's able to admit where he has messed 
up. False pride can short-circuit a young man's development. 

Q: Will you be making any major changes at UCC? 

Al From my time visiting UCC, the school looks like it is 
exceptionally well run. In the short term, my first priority 
will be to listen and make sure I understand the exciting 



opportunities and challenges that the school faces. I'm 
fortunate because the school's leadership has already pro- 
duced an Aims and Objectives document that outlines where 
we want to go. We want to make sure we deliver the best 
possible education for our boys, the best support for our 
staff, and that we embrace our past while we keep our focus 
firmly on the future. The great news is that we start from 
such a strong position, but there is always room for growth. 
Ql HOW DO YOU INTEND TO MERGE THE PROUD PAST 
OF THIS INSTITUTION WITH FORWARD-LOOKING 
LEADERSHIP SKILLS IN AN EFFORT TO ENHANCE 
THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AT UCC? 

A: The school's illustrious past gives us confidence we might 
not otherwise have had. We know that what we've done for 
the past 175 years has worked, and it's worked because the 
school has never forgotten what it's about. Its bedrock 
principles have been about providing young men with the 
academic skills and character values that have enabled them 
to live lives of leadership and service. The contexts have 
changed, but the principles have been a constant. Sir John 
Colborne might not have anticipated "instant messaging," 
but he did expect UCC to provide leadership for a growing 
country. While today's students live in a much different 
world, their most basic needs are not all that far removed 
from their predecessors. 

Q: What about the abuse cases from our 

PAST? HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT TAKING CHARGE 
OF A SCHOOL THAT'S IN THE MIDST OF SUCH 
DIFFICULTIES? 

Al Of course, the abuse cases have been very troubling for 

everyone at UCC. I think the recent administration has han- 
dled the situation in the right way: they've been open and 
honest with the UCC community, and they've been working 
toward a resolution. And I see that training, policies and pro- 
cedures are in place to ensure the well-being of all students. I 
know that the months ahead will continue to be difficult, but 
I am hopeful that we will see some form of closure regarding 
these cases in the not-too-distant future. Then, true healing 
can begin. 

Q: As you're coming from a Catholic school, 

WILL RELIGION BECOME MORE IMPORTANT AT UCC? 

Al The Charter of UCC is very clear that it is a secular school 
and that embracing diversity is a key value. I certainly under- 
stand and appreciate this. I think the real issue is that UCC 
strives to teach its boys not just to do well but to do good. 
What does the "good" look like to boys? Most adolescents 
are already grappling with the big questions — questions 
of meaning — and I think that the best schools provide a 
healthy atmosphere where students can wrestle with these 
issues. We can raise questions, but they've got to come up 
with their own answers. Most of the students, I'm sure, also 
want to live lives that are rich in achievement and rich in 
friendships. These are universal values, and I think if UCC 
wants to make a real contribution in building the right 
character in boys and in nurturing healthy relationships, 
we need to talk as a community about this. But to start off, 
I want to just listen. 



OLD TIMES 4 SUMMER/FALL 2004 



Q: What reading material is on your bedside 

TABLE RIGHT NOW? 

A: Tobias Wolf's Old School. . .and Canadian History for Dummies. 

Q: Who are your favourite heroes of fiction? 
In movies? Why? 

A: I like Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird. The odds are 
stacked against him; he's a single dad, trying to help his kids 
see right from wrong as he tries to address the major social 
issue of his day. He follows his conscience — even though 
this puts him at risk. And he does his very best, though his 
best, at first glance, doesn't seem nearly good enough. I also 
like the Gary Cooper character in the movie High Noon for 
many of the same reasons. At the risk of sounding like a high 
school English teacher, it's the individual vs. society tension 
that grabs me. And we've all found ourselves in similar — if 
not quite so dramatic — positions from time to time. 

Q: What's your motto? 

A: I haven't ever thought about a personal motto, but I do like 
Certa Veritas. I think it's translated as "strive for truth." 

Q: What natural gift would you most like to 
possess? 

Al I'd like a photographic memory and a good voice. Is that too 
much to ask? 



Q: Name one thing no one here knows about 

YOU YET. 

A: I drink an awful lot of tea and tell a lot of stories, some of 
which have elements of truth. I don't know if there's a 
connection between the two or if it's the Irish in me.... 

Q: If, upon leaving UCC, you are asked what 

YOUR MOST IMPORTANT ACCOMPLISHMENT WAS 
DURING YOUR TENURE AS PRINCIPAL, WHAT DO 
YOU HOPE THAT MIGHT BE? 

A: Learning how to skate backwards would be an important 
personal accomplishment. I would hate to be the first 
principal of UCC in nearly 175 years who couldn't do this. 
As for academic goals, I think it is a little early for me to 
take a crack at that. What I can tell you is that I am a 
teacher at heart, and I care passionately about improving 
the way we affirm and challenge young men. I hope that, 
when I leave UCC, the school will continue to make big 
strides in leading the way in helping our parents and 
community educate boys. 

Q: What do you want your tombstone to say? 

A: It's a bit pretentious, but I'd like it to be, "IP was a man for 
others." Of course, it'll probably be, "Good glove, no stick." 
Alas.... 




During their summer break, students Josh Booth (middle) and Alex Pivnick (both entering IB1) had a chance to meet their incoming principal.

By Michaele Robertson 



T 

hroughout Doug Blakey's more than 25 years at the College, he has demonstrated time 
JL. and time again his commitment to the education of boys. He has been an outstanding 
teacher of biology, a strong chair of the science department, a powerful influence as housemaster 
of Seaton's, a thoughtful vice-principal and a visionary principal. 

That's the career. What follows is the man. 

Doug has never shied away from a battle. 
He loves the edge. He has a probing intellect 
and a great sense of fair play. These qualities 
have served him well, whether as an advocate 
for faculty in his early years at UCC or as the 
principal who made good on the Aims and 
Objectives document. His tenure has been, at 
times, contentious. He has been lauded and 
criticized with equal fervour. He has worked 
to make UCC the best school in Canada while 
struggling with aspects of its past that have 
distressed him deeply. 

Just to be yourself, as a man and a friend, 
can be complicated for a principal. Doug is a 
man of parts. You may know he rides a Harley. 
But you almost certainly don't know of his rich, 
creative life as an artist and musician. Those 
who work closely with him love his goofy 
humour, marvel at his humility and gasp at his 
audacity. He is genuinely appreciative of those 
who have supported his efforts to move the 
school ahead — and to them he is a considerate 
and loyal friend. 

After leaving UCC, he will probably take 
on the challenge of improving the health of 
the planet. And the results will, likely, be just 
as impressive.

and some of the historical issues affecting the 
school before and during his term as principal.

Family 




Determining whether UCC is the best fit 
for each boy is important to Chantal 
Lacourciere Kenny and her admission team. 



So, you're hoping that your son or grandson will follow in your foot- 
steps by attending UCC? Clearly, you'll want to know what Chantal 
Lacourciere Kenny has to say about UCC's admissions process. 

As UCC's new executive director of admission, Kenny oversees 
the Office of Admission's comprehensive enrolment management 
program, which includes assessment and recruitment, as well as some 
marketing and public relations functions. 

Recently, the Office of Admission stepped up its efforts to reach out to families with a more 
personalized, student-focused admission process. 

"As UCC has moved into younger and younger grades, the need to look at the family more closely 
becomes very important," explains Kenny, a former UCC teacher who served as director of admission 
at the Prep before assuming the College-wide admissions role for the 2004—05 school year. 

Here, she answers the questions that many alumni ask when considering UCC for their sons. 



Q: Why should I send my son to UCC? 

Al College programs have never been better. In my 17 years at 
UCC, I have observed remarkable growth and change in all 
areas. Faculty and staff are 100 per cent committed to foster- 
ing intellectual growth, social responsibility and school life 
involvement. 

As a parent, you know that all children are not alike. Each 
child has his or her own special interests, talents, develop- 
mental patterns and emotional needs. A school that is right 
for one boy may not be the best choice for another. I invite 
all prospective families to consider the following questions as 
they navigate through the admission process: 

• Is the IB curriculum appropriate for my son's talents 
and goals? 

• Will the school challenge my son without over- 
whelming him? 

• Will my son be comfortable in the learning 
environment? Will we? 

• Are there opportunities for my son to pursue his 
special interests? 

• Will my son learn the values that are important to 
our family? 

Q: What makes UCC unique? 

A: UCC is a leader in boys' education. We offer programs, 

including the International Baccalaureate Program, designed 
to enable each boy to discover his strengths and gain 

OLD TIMES 8 SUMMER/FALL 2004 



self-awareness by sharing his talents. Our teachers draw 
from the best practices in education and challenge students 
to become creative and reflective learners. Student support 
services and extensive facilities, including our outdoor school 
at Norval, contribute to the school's success. 
Q: What are the entry levels and how many 

BOYS WILL BE ADMITTED? 

A: The major entry levels for 2004-05 are Senior Kindergarten 
(18 boys); Grade 3 (22 boys); Grade 5 (36 boys); and Grade 7 
(40 boys). Enrolment for day students at the Upper School is 
limited (approximately 20). Boarding is available beginning 
in Year 1 (Grade 8). At this time, we do not foresee any major 
changes in the current enrolment model. About 1,100 boys, 
ages 5 through 17 years, attend UCC. Most are day students, 
with approximately 100 boarders from all regions of Canada 
and many countries around the world. 

Q: How does a family apply? 

Al Prospective families may obtain a copy of our Prospectus 
and application by calling or e-mailing the Office of 
Admission. Application forms and grade-specific 
information (including timelines) are also available at 
www.ucc.on.ca/admissions. 

Generally, the admission process begins one year before 
the year of entry. We do accept applications for non-entry 
levels. Late applications are accepted and reviewed on 
an individual basis, depending on available space at each 
grade level. 



Q: What admission criteria do you use? 

Al There is no formula for gaining admission to UCC. Academic 
readiness and accomplishment are very important, but the 
admission team also considers many other criteria, such 
as community involvement, leadership and talent in co- 
curricular activities. We rely on teachers, principals, colleagues 
and alumni to share professional information about applicants 
— all of which play an important part in our decisions. In 
the end, quantitative and qualitative data matter. We look 
beyond the surface. 

Q: Are assessment tests necessary? 

A: Assessment tools are a part of the admissions process in most 
independent schools. We recently completed a thorough 
review of our assessment tools in an effort to better under- 
stand and measure students' development and readiness. 
There are benefits and drawbacks with any assessment 
instrument. However, our research efforts have resulted in 
a more comprehensive assessment process — in addition 
to standardized testing, we introduced mechanisms to 
measure motivation, interpersonal skills, creativity and 
community involvement. 

Q: HOW CAN MY SON PREPARE FOR THE ADMISSION 
PROCESS? 

Al First off, we strongly discourage tutoring boys for testing and 
interviews. We know from experience that special coaching 
creates added anxiety. It is essential for us to fully understand 
a boy's cognitive abilities and level of achievement in order 
to assess whether UCC is the right fit. We understand boys' 
learning styles and development, and we care about what 
makes them tick. There is a lot of research that shows that 
both reading and spending quality family time will set the 
foundation for academic success. There's no need to pay 
tutors to achieve this desired goal! 

Q: Who reviews applications? 

A: Most applications are read by three or more members of the 
admission team, and are considered carefully before admis- 
sion decision meetings. The entire process requires many 
steps and several months. 

Q: Will my son or grandson have 'an edge' 
because I'm an Old Boy? 

A: The answer is "yes" and "no." Admission decisions are made 
in the best interest of the student, and we know from experi- 
ence that our program is not for everyone. The College is 
committed to honouring relationships with Old Boys and 
their families. Indeed, sons of Old Boys and siblings are 
automatically interviewed upon application. While admis- 
sion is based on many factors, we are blessed with the num- 
ber of very qualified applicants, which far exceed available 
spaces at all grade levels. After careful consideration, our 
team bases its decisions on the thorough analysis of each 
boy's application. Only when all factors are considered 
equal do we give preference to sons of Old Boys. 

The good news is that young students are constantly 
changing and developing, and we encourage all families to 
reapply should admission not be offered in the first round. 



Q: Does the College offer financial assistance 
to students? 

A: Financial assistance is available to new and current families 
beginning at Grade 7. Assistance amounts are reassessed and 
allocated yearly and are based on family need. Applications 
for financial assistance are reviewed separately from the 
admission process and do not affect admission decisions. 
Financial Assistance Aid for Canadian Students (FACS) 
packages are available through the Office of Admission. A 
generous financial aid program (about $1.6 million this year) 
provides needs-based assistance to families who otherwise 
could not cover the tuition costs. 

Q: What do you look for in a student? 

A: As I've indicated, the admission process is designed to get to 
know the candidate, and his family, as best we can. Successful 
applicants present strong academic credentials; evidence of 
highly developed talents and interpersonal skills; motivation; 
and leadership. It is fair to say that none of us can predict 
what a student will be like, and we may make mistakes. 
However, what is important to note is that we make deci- 
sions based on what we know at the time of application, and 
we always put the boy's best interests first. Our challenge in 
the coming years will be to continue to develop the best 
mechanism to recognize students whose academic record 
may not fairly represent the contribution they would make 
here and beyond. 

Q: What's the average class size? 

A: In SK, Grade 1 and Grade 2, the class size is 18 students. In all 
other grades, the average is 19 students. 

Q: What are the tuition fees? 

At The 2004-05 tuition fee for day students from SK through 
to Foundation Year is $20,350 (boarding tuition fee is up 
to $37,975). Additional costs include, but are not limited 
to, books and supplies, uniforms, class and team trips, 
private music lessons, and optional after-school and hot- 
lunch programs. 




The Kent family, David ('48), Geoff ('81) and Charles (2011),

the College a family tradition.

Remembering a friend and champion of care... 

Barbara Barrow was a UCC nurse and a celebrated member of the UCC community 
(1938-1980). The Barrow Foundation has commissioned Mark Battley, College Films 
supervisor and producer of a number of videos for UCC, to create a 10-minute video 
to celebrate her legacy. With the help of Marian Spence, UCC's archivist, he is currently 
engaged in preliminary research. He would like to hear from Old Boys who remained 
close to "Miss B" and who are willing to discuss both her personal impact on them and 
the reasons for her enduring mystique. 

Please contact Mark Battley at 416-488-1125, ext. 3306, or by e-mail:

UCC Association News 



The 2003-04 school year was 
great for the Upper Canada 
College Association! 

Our mandate, "to foster the 
associations and promote the 
mission of Upper Canada 
College," was met through 
the wide-ranging events we 
ran, such as the launch of 
the Common Ties mentoring 
program, and the dedicated 
work of the Board of Directors, 
under the leadership of President 
Jim Deeks ('67). 

The year kicked off in August 
2003 with a wonderful night of 
jazz, at Rodney's Oyster House, 
by a group of Toronto-area Old 
Boys. A sold-out event, it is being 
repeated again this year! 

Association Day 2003, whose 
theme was "The Greening of 
UCC," was held in late September. 
It featured displays that high- 
lighted plans to transform the 
College into a "Green School." As 
well, entertainment, club displays, 
football, soccer and volleyball 
games, and events for Old 
Boys attracted a large crowd — 
estimated to be in the thousands. 
Another high point was the 
50-year celebration of the 
Class of 1953. Along with their 
families, 23 Old Boys from 
1953 attended. 



Association Day is always a big 

draw for the UCC community. 

The next A Day, which celebrates 

UCC's 175th anniversary, is on 

Saturday, October 2, 2004. 

OLD TIMES 12 SUMMER/FALL 2004

On the evening of Association Day, the classes of 
1958, 1963, 1968, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, and 
1998 were honoured at the Reunion Dinner. Just over 
400 guests attended. 

At October's "Speaker Evening," a large crowd 
gathered to hear Tom Wright ('71), chairman of 
the Canadian Football League, speak about sports 
challenges and triumphs. 

A number of successful branch events occurred 
during the year: in Montreal, Boston, Bermuda, London 
(Ont.), London (England), Kingston, Ottawa, New 
York, Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Halifax, 
Budapest and Hong Kong. They were an opportunity 
for Old Boys throughout the world to reconnect. 

At the National Club, the second annual 
"Downtown Festive Season Lunch" for Old Boys and 
parents working in downtown Toronto, was held in 
early December. It was a great way to kick off the 
holiday season.

Share your wealth of experience! 

VThe Common Ties mentorship program offers 
young alumni the opportunity to network with 
experienced UCC alumni and parents to explore 
career options and gain career development advice. 

This exciting new program was launched on 
May 29, 2004. Within six weeks, Common Ties' 
membership included 75 mentors and 61 mentees, 
from Canada, the United States and Hong Kong. Mentees 
are excited about the opportunity to learn from those with 
experience, and our mentors are keen to help. 

If you're an alumnus (or parent) with knowledge and 
experience to share, consider joining Common Ties as a mentor.

The Seasonal Festival of Readings and Music was 
enjoyed by an appreciative Laidlaw Hall audience in early 
December. Association Past-President Doug Reid ('67) did 
a great job as chair of the event, which featured music (new, 
traditional, religious and non-religious) that was enjoyed 
by all. 

The Founder's Dinner, the highlight of the Association 
calendar, was held in early February. More than 700 guests 
heard performances by Prep and Upper School bands, and 
Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs (now the Minister of 
Defence), the Hon. Bill Graham ('57), spoke to the group. 

Common Ties, the new mentoring program, was 
launched in May. This innovative program matches young 
Old Boys with mentors to allow for networking, skill-building 
and career advice. Common Ties promises to be one of the 
best initiatives the Association has launched in years! 

Hockey Night moved to the new Ricoh Coliseum and 
saw a dip in attendance, but it was still a successful evening. 
The College's outstanding varsity team defeated St. 
Andrew's College for the Foster Hewitt Victory Trophy. 

The Reunion Dinner, for the College's "senior" Old 
Boys, was a super event with 124 guests, lots of nostalgia, 
and some great stories of days gone by! 

Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day at the Prep 
continues to grow in popularity. This year, more than 400 
people enjoyed lunch together and attended the concerts, 
classroom visits and photo-taking sessions.

NEED ADVICE? WANT HELP FROM AN EXPERT ON 
AN ISSUE THAT'S PUZZLING YOU? 



WE LL TRACK DOWN AN OLD BOY 
WHO CAN ANSWER YOUR QUESTION. 



ASK Barney Williams ('96), Victoria, B.C. 

' MEMBER OF THE 2004 CANADIAN Men's FOUR 

Olympic Rowing Team (Athens), Gold Medal 
winner at the 2003 world championships 
(Men's Four Rowing) and 2003 Lucerne World 
Cup (Men's Four Rowing), and First Place at 
the 2003 Canadian National Trials. 

I am not very competitive. Are there ways to 
get involved in rowing in a purely recreational 
way? At what age should I consider getting my 
children involved in the sport? 

One of the interesting things about rowing is that 
most gyms have a rowing machine because of the 
intense full-body workout it gives. As such, it is a 
great sport for your health, it can be done in teams 




or alone and, as it is not a weight-bearing activity, 
children as young as seven years can participate. You 
don't have to become a member at a club to enjoy 
rowing. Most national lakes offer skulls for rent, and 
you will find the same around the world. 

The movement in rowing is quite natural, so the 
sport is accessible to a wide range of people, and with 
some basic instruction you can make your rowing 
more enjoyable. I recommend taking at least one 
introductory class or session from your local rowing 
club to ensure you row at maximum efficiency. 

Classes and camps are also available for children. 
Not only is rowing a great sport, it also teaches them 
to work well with others. 

My rowing career has had many indirect benefits. 
I have been able to meet a large network of people 
from around the world and have found that the range 

of opportunities available 
to me increases with every 
contact. For instance, I am 
starting my law studies at 
Oxford this fall, in part 
because of advice from a 
contact through rowing. 
You never know where an 
activity can lead you — 
directly or indirectly.

OLD TIMES 16 SUMMER/FALL 2004 



ASK Gary Berman ( "93), Toronto. 

vice-president in real estate investment 
for Tri Continental Capital and a Baker 
Scholar while at Harvard Business School. 

Is buying a condo a good investment? Is the 
condo market saturated? 

I say it makes more sense to buy and pay into a 
mortgage than to pay rent (someone else's mortgage). 
If you have enough funds for a down payment, then 
buying will also force you to save money through 
mortgage payments. But I don't consider buying a 
property or condo for you to live in as a financial 
investment; I consider it a lifestyle investment. 

Owning your own condo 
gives you a certain quality of 
life — that's the investment 
you are making. I say this 
because, financially, condo 
prices have been quite flat for 
the past couple of years and I 
expect them to remain fairly 
flat or increase only moder- 
ately in the next few years. 
Buying a condo with the 
intent to sell and make big 
profit isn't generally realistic 
in today's market. 




As for the market, it is currently considered 
balanced to slightly over-supplied by the industry. 
This may sound like saturation to you, but in the 
business this is a decent rating. There is approximately 
a 12- to 13-month supply of unsold condos today 
(including projects not yet under construction.) 
Generally, a year's supply is considered balanced, 
since it takes time to add supply. As well, in the past 
six months the supply has come down — which to 
us means that developers (or their lenders) are using 
discipline to ensure a sustainable level of supply. There 
is also a driving demand, due, in part, to low interest 
rates and demographics (there's steady population 
growth). In Toronto alone, it's expected that one 
million people will be added to the city's population 
by 2016. That means a great deal of infrastructure 
and housing needs. 

All this is meant to assure you that the apparent 
overextension of condo development is really not so. 
Consider this: an average condo building, with 200 
units, will only typically house 200 to 400 people. 
When you take into account that Toronto is growing 
by 100,000 people a year, even having 80 condo 
buildings under construction will only meet the 
housing needs of one-quarter of these people! So, 
all that building activity you see around town may 
seem like too much, but really it is just meeting the 
current demand. 



ASK 



Shan Wickramasinghe C96), Sri Lanka, 
research analyst at the Institute of Policy 
Studies. 



What is involved in being a member of a govern- 
ment think tank? How did you get involved? 

From my short experience at the Institute, most 
members are involved in research work. Different 
institutes focus on different areas. The one I work 
at focuses on economic issues. As a research analyst, 
you are involved in researching areas designated by 
project heads or officers. At the higher levels, senior 
researchers typically prepare papers for various 
publications or journals and are involved in various 
forums where issues are presented and discussed. 

In order to be valuable in a government "think 
tank," most people have or intend to pursue post- 
graduate degrees. Of course, there are no set rules 
and things vary from institute to institute. Some 
think tanks and research institutes cover large 



subject areas and have resources for a large staff, 
whereas others are more specific in their subjects 
of research. 

If you are interested in this line of work, I 
suggest you spend some time researching different 
institutes that focus on the subject 
areas, or geographical regions, that 
interest you. Look into internships 
as well, as they can be a great 
way to get your foot in the door. 
Studying sociology, psychology, 
geography, economics and anthro- 
pology in university may also open 
areas of interest and opportunities 
for work in developing countries. 

My general advice is, remember 
that different institutes tend 
to study different subject areas, 
so keep looking until you find 
your fit.

What planned giving can do 



By Andrea Patterson 



David Bruce ('73) is the consummate planner. As a UCC parent (P2005), Old Boy class 
co-president, canvasser for annual fund campaigns at both the College and Bishop 
Strachan School, and busy volunteer at St. Michael's Hospital, he needs to be. 
Establishing and following long-term plans are also key in his career as a financial advis 
er at Scotia McLeod. 

His preparations extend long into the future — as Bruce and 
his wife have purchased a joint life insurance policy naming UCC 
as owner and beneficiary. In doing so, they made a charitable gift 
to the College now and help ensure UCC's programming contin- 
ues uninterrupted — leaving a legacy. 

Bruce has also extended his help to UCC in developing the 
UCC Life Insurance Program, specially developed for the College's 
community of alumni, donors and employees. In creating this 
investment opportunity for the community, UCC aims to help 
donors get the most out of their donations. The program requires 
only five annual premium payments, or "pledges," to fulfil the policy requirements. This 
allows policy-holders the opportunity to make a modest gift today, which will become a 
significant gift in the future. 

"UCC will be around forever, and we need the foresight to look ahead," says Bruce. 

"This insurance program will make a huge impact 
on the school." 

Planned gifts, a popular option at many not- 
for-profit organizations, ensure donors realize their 



"UCC will be around 
forever, and we need the 
foresight to look ahead."

planned gift

and beliefs."

philanthropic objectives, while at 
the same time maximizing tax 
and other financial benefits. 

"Making a planned gift is a 
statement of one's values and 
beliefs. It's an extension of one's 
self — how one wishes to be 
remembered," says Dyanne 
Ostrander, UCC's new director 
of planned giving. Gift planning 
is often equated with deferred 
gifts such as bequests, charitable 
gift annuities and charitable 
remainder trusts. What many 
donors may not realize is that 
RRSPs and RRIFs, as well as life 
insurance policies, may also be 
designated as planned gifts. 




Through a planned gift, David Bruce (73) is helping to 
ensure that communiiy programs and learning innovations 
continue to prosper at UCC.

Donation Recognition 

The Henry Scadding Society is the 
College's premier donor recognition 
society for planned gifts. It is named 
in honour of the first student and 
Head Boy who later became a classics 
master and acting principal at 
UCC. The society acknowledges 
the generosity and vision of those 
individuals who — in their lifetime 
and beyond — establish long-term 
support for future generations at 
the College. 

Individuals who make a planned 
gift receive an invitation to a special 
annual reception at the College. 
They also receive a Henry Scadding 
memento, and are given an opportu- 
nity to be recognized in a UCC 
publication and a special mention in 
that year's annual report. 

Deferred gifts are becoming 
increasingly important to the College. 
As the planned giving program 
grows, further donor recognition 
incentives will evolve. 

For more information about 
planned gifts, or a confidential quote, 
please contact Dyanne Ostrander 
directly at 416-488-1125, ext. 2229, 
or dostrander@ucc.on.ca.

Charitable Gift Annuities: 

Donors should be 65 years of age or older. 

• A minimum of $25,000 is required; 25% is used as an immediate gift to 
UCC and the remainder purchases the gift annuity. 

• Donors are guaranteed income payments for life, at a fixed rate, and all or a 
portion of the income is tax-free. 

• Donors receive a tax receipt for the gift portion that UCC receives. 

• Annuities are a benefit of age: the older you are, the better the rates become 
(example: male donor, 70 years old, the rate is 7.1%; male, 80 years old, the 
rate is 9.4%; and male, 90 years old, the rate is 12.4%). 

Life Insurance: 

This is a simple and effective method to maximize your gift to UCC. The use of 
life insurance is becoming increasingly popular because you can be recognized 
for a certain gift amount now, and your family will be recognized again in the 
future. Life insurance donations to the College allow you to leave a significant 
gift for relatively small annual payments. 

Options: 

• Name the UCC Foundation as beneficiary of an existing policy. At your 
death, the College will receive the death benefit amount and your estate 
will receive a full donation receipt. 

• Name the UCC Foundation owner and beneficiary of a new policy. As 
described in the article, UCC has developed an easy program whereby 
you make five annual payments to fully pay for the policy. 

Bequests: 

This gift, made through your will, is the most common type of deferred gift. 

Options: 

• It can be as simple as a sentence or two in your will or codicil. 

• You may make a gift of a specific amount or particular asset, or give the 
residue, or a portion of the residue, from your estate. 

• The estate will receive a tax receipt, for the full value of your gift, which 
may significantly reduce the tax payable on your final income tax return. 

Charitable Remainder Trusts: 

A charitable remainder trust allows you to give today, yet retain the income from 
the donated asset throughout your lifetime. You will receive an immediate tax 
receipt for the present value of the donated asset and also receive the annual 
income. Upon death, the asset is transferred to UCC. 

Options: 

• Funded with cash. 

• Funded with securities. 

• Funded with other investments. 

Residual Interest: 

A gift of residual interest refers to gifts such as real estate or art. The donor 
retains use of the property for their lifetime and upon death the gift is trans- 
ferred to UCC. This gift option allows the College to issue a discounted 
charitable tax receipt during the donor's life. 

RRSPs and RRIFs: 

You can designate UCC as beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF, and your estate 
will receive a tax receipt.

VlNCE BARILLARO — Chair, Modern 
Languages, French and Spanish Teacher, 
Upper School 

Vince was at the Faculty of Education in Toronto, 
in 1979, when he decided to apply to a school he 
had never heard of (ours). It was to be the only 
application he ever made! 

Few of his colleagues know that Vince was 
born in Italy, just over 50 years ago. Two years 
later, he moved to Argentina, where he lived for 
another 12 years. He arrived in Canada in 1967, 
and in keeping with the spirit of our Centennial 
year, was fully bilingual — but in Italian and 
Spanish. So, he had to learn two more languages, 
English and French! He still speaks all four lan- 
guages fluently — a talented fellow. 

He came to UCC for the interview and got the job — 25 
years later, he's still with us. He teaches French and Spanish, 
and is the chair of the Modern Languages Department, a job he 
thoroughly enjoys. 

Growing up in Argentina, where every boy had a soccer ball, 
Vince became an adept player. He brought this talent with him to 
UCC, and was a successful coach of the Under 15s, the First Team 
and the Under 16s. While coaching the First Team in 1991, the 
team had an undefeated season. Vince also enjoyed two undefeat- 
ed seasons at the U16 level. George Klein, captain of the First 




Tim Meikle, Marian Spence, Tom Simpson and Vince Barillaro are welcomed into 
the ranks of the QC club at a dinner in June 2004. 



Team at the time, was thanking all of the coaches at the end of 
the season and, about Vince, he said: "And we learned the most 
from Mr. Barillaro" — a well-deserved compliment. 

I was coaching U15s at the same time, and I always marvelled 
at how well organized Vince's practices were and how well his 
players played the game. He generously shared his expertise with 
anyone who needed it, including me. 

Vince and his wife, Daisy, enjoy travelling. They enjoy 
international music and cooking, and Vince also enjoys garden- 
ing. When he's not cultivating his enormous garden, Vince is 
cultivating a love of languages in his students.

Q. 



TOM SlMPSON — Operations Manager, Facilities 

Tom is a man of many talents. At 16, he got his first job as an 
apprentice mechanic in Thunder Bay, Ont. As well, while helping 
at his parents' service station, he was entrepreneurial enough to 
grab the opportunity to charge American tourists money for 
information about the best fishing spots in the area! 

A Canadian Army man for 12 years, Tom worked on trans- 
port logistics in places such as Germany and Puerto Rico. He 
lived in Liverpool, England, for a time and then decided to move 
himself and his family back to Canada. 

In 1979, Tom joined UCC's maintenance team. With his high 



level of enthusiasm and energy, as well as incredible knowledge, 
Tom soon became the resident "mechanical expert." 

More than his title, he coached the U14 hockey team with 
David Mumby, went to England on music trips led by Tim 
Meikle and Kathryn Edmonson, and instructed the carpentry 
option to Remove boys while working at the Prep. Tom was a 
favourite with the students and staff, in part because of his quiet, 
friendly personality, along with his wit. 

In spring, Tom joined the Quarter Century and retired from 
UCC. We miss Tom at UCC, but wish him all the best.

TlM MEIKLE — Head of the Music Department, Prep School 



For over 25 years, UCC has been fortunate to have in its midst a 
man who once played his tuba or, as he refers to it, "God's instru- 
ment," for such diverse employers as Ringling Brothers Circus 
and the renowned conductor, Leopold Stokowski. Fortunately for 
his students and colleagues, Tim Meikle decided to abandon the 
life of a professional musician for a career in education. After a 
brief stint with the East York Board of Education, Tim arrived at 
the Prep in 1979. He quickly settled into the Prep family and 
began to display the enormous energy and enthusiasm for school 
life that remains his hallmark today. 

As department chair, Tim took over the fledgling instrumen- 
tal music program that had begun a scant three years earlier. The 
fit was ideal, as Tim was able to create a music curriculum that 
offered each student an opportunity to learn and develop both 
his specific playing skills and broader knowledge of music. His 
program embodies both experiential learning and co-operative 
activities. As a result of Tim's dedication and time, the music 
program has expanded from the one concert band that existed in 
1979 to the two jazz bands and two concert bands of today. 

His students have been fine ambassadors of the College in 
Alberta, England and the U.S., consistently placing highly in 
music festivals and competitions. Indeed, the Prep Band has been 



awarded the Gold Medal at the Kiwanis Festival and the National 
School Student Music Festival on a number of occasions. Tim 
always demands that his students demonstrate discipline, preci- 
sion, punctuality and consideration for others. These skills have 
had a profound impact on the boys' development and success 
across the breadth of the school program, and in later life. 

Just as Tim has demanded much from his students, so he has 
demanded much of himself. His contributions to the well-being 
of generations of his students and colleagues transcend the class- 
room. He has always loved the athletic program and has coached 
representative hockey, soccer and ultimate teams. Over the years, 
he has travelled to Russia, Finland and Sweden with hockey teams 
and continues to play a vital role in the Remove Ottawa Trip. His 
passion for technology and computers led him to develop the 
first computerized reports, mark register and databases at the 
Prep. Somewhere in the midst of all his activities, he has found 
the time to represent his colleagues on the Faculty Committee 
and to act as construction foreman for the sets for Prep theatrical 
performances. 

Alan Stephen, the third headmaster of the Prep School, once 
said, "Nothing can go really wrong when Jim's around." Today, 
Stephen Johnson would say the same of Tim.

Q' 



MARIAN SPENCE — Archivist 



Many aspects of Marian Spence's personality could be captured 
in a single image — an image in many ways central to her life — 
that of a figure skater. A few of you who have known Marian only 
in her professional capacity at UCC may not know that she has 
been involved in figure skating ever since she was a small child 
growing up in the Leaside neighbourhood of Toronto. In her late 
teens and through her twenties, she taught figure skating and to 
this day, she continues her involvement in the sport by judging at 
various competitions. In my eyes, Marian embodies many of the 
qualities that spring to mind when I think of figure skating — 
strength, grace, creativity, risk-taking, and most of all, heart. 

When she arrived at UCC in 1979 with no training as a 
school librarian, Marian did not allow it to deter her from taking 
the library in a new and positive direction. With the help of 
Donna Wilkinson, and later Janet Blue, she began working with 
teachers to develop a comprehensive training program for 
research skills. 

Marian has demonstrated the grace and creativity required 



to be a great skater in other aspects of her life as well. In 1994, 
after 15 years in the library, Marian was asked to take on a new 
challenge — that of building a professional archives for UCC. 
She threw herself into her new role with gusto and determination. 
As a result, the College now has an archives and records manage- 
ment program that is the envy of many other institutions. Marian 
has also demonstrated her creativity through the striking and 
thoughtfully researched displays she crafts for the front hall at 
the Upper School. 

What defines Marian most clearly for me, however, is her 
great heart: her love for the College, for friends and, most of all, 
for family. Through her years at UCC, she has been a dedicated 
employee who has given far more to the College than her job 
description demands. Whether she's in Italy helping to chaperone 
a UCC trip, or helping Year 2 students grasp the pathos of the 
Second World War, Marian leaves you feeling appreciated for 
your individuality!

COLIN LOWNDES, Assistant Head of 
Upper School, Student Life, Director of 
Summer Programs, English Teacher and 
Senior House Adviser 

He led theatrical productions, coordinated a 
team of students writing Our Shared Ideals, 
created the Prefects Program, evolved the 
student government and devised UCC's 
new house advising system. 

Colin Lowndes is my friend. As well, 
he was assistant head of school, student 
life; senior house adviser of Bremner's; director of UCC 
Summer Programs; architect of the Prefects Program, and 
former director of the Little Theatre. (A few of us "older folk' 
even remember Colin as the offensive line coach for 
the JV football team!) 

As assistant head of the Upper School, his domain was 
the basement, where the students hang out. He would greet 
them in the morning, and keep contact with them during 
morning break, the lunch period, and after school. I can 
think of no higher praise for Colin than that he spent his 
time getting to know students, spending time where they 
spent their time. This is the mark of a man who loves his 
work, not his title. 

Colin's unique vision and determination are exemplified 
by his work on the Prefects Program. He had the insight to 
develop opportunities for all students to earn prefectship by 
completing such initiatives as mentoring, engaging in a lead- 
ership activity, and by making their citizenship active in the 
UCC community. In the three years of the program, over 400 
students have nominated themselves to try to earn prefectship 




at the College, a tribute to the timeliness 
of Colin's vision. 

Some will remember Colin's amazing 
legacy to the Little Theatre. Musical 
productions such as Cabaret, West Side 
Story, and dramatic productions such as 
Hamlet and Othello have enriched our 
community immeasurably. Personally, 
I won't soon forget the tableau he 
constructed in the Sharks and Jets fight 
scene in West Side Story. 

Faculty know Colin as a person who 
is easy to talk to, empathetic, and willing to listen to complex 
situations. As a colleague in the English Department, he 
helped us sort out the intricacies of the IB curriculum, and 
even made athletic young men aware of the delight of Jane 
Austen's Pride and Prejudice*. 

Perhaps fewer people know that Colin is a blues aficionado, 
often unpacking his Fender Stratocaster to play a few riffs 
with his daughter, Kate. He is also an avid runner. 

In his over 20 years at UCC, few teachers and colleagues 
have had more of an impact on the UCC community than 
Colin. When he announced that he was leaving to take up the 
post of deputy headmaster/head of Upper School at Crescent 
School, it was a bittersweet moment for us. Of course we are 
happy that his talents have garnered him this richly deserved 
recognition, yet it is certainly with much sadness that we see 
him leave UCC. 

Perhaps the true measure of the esteem in which he is 
held is that so many of us, unreservedly, would say: "Colin 
Lowndes, he is my friend."

DAVID MUMBY, Director 
of Admission, Boarding, and 
Co-ordinator of the National 
Scholar Program 

David Mumby learned years ago 
that a career at UCC has its haz- 
ards. On a UCC admissions trip 
to the Maritimes, David's car 
had an unfortunate encounter 
with two deer on a country road 
late one night. The deer didn't 
make it. And, as his car was 
towed to a local garage, David 
could only wonder about the 
fate of his vehicle. 

The next day, he found 
his car in 1,000 parts on the floor of the garage. 
Characteristically, David made the best of a bad 
situation. He weighed his options, shrugged his 
shoulders, and, after visiting the prospective students 
he was scheduled to meet, took in a few rounds of 
golf. Eventually, his car was pieced back together and 
he made the return trip to Toronto ... uneventfully. 

Known for his easygoing, no-nonsense (and 
no-socks) ways, David has a go-getter attitude and a 
strong entrepreneurial spirit that belie his apparent 
laid-back demeanour. 

In his spare time, David runs his own consulting 
business, plays competitive bridge at the national 
level, and serves as publisher and editor of the 
Amateur Hockey Journal. An avid golfer, he's the 
former men's golf captain at Muskoka Lakes Golf 
and Country Club. 



His love of hockey — coaching it, watching it, 
playing it and writing about it — extends beyond his 
strong commitment to the Blues. A director of the 
Greater Toronto Hockey League, he's well known in 
Toronto hockey circles as a huge supporter of minor 
hockey — a volunteer coach who encourages players 
to achieve their best. 

As a long-time hockey coach at UCC, he accom- 
panied our teams on trips to Finland, Sweden and 
Russia, as well as countless games closer to home. 
At UCC, he was also a football coach, and he helped 
students develop their skills in other sports, including 
softball and track and field. 

David arrived at UCC as a math teacher at the 
Prep School in 1971. Over the years, he has held 
the positions of director of admission at the Prep, 
director of athletics, director student affairs, and 
executive director of admission. Recently, as director 
of admission, boarding, and co-ordinator of the 
National Scholar Program, he's travelled across 
Canada, and the world, in his efforts to identify and 
encourage talented students who can make their 
mark at UCC. Adept at networking, he could often 
be heard promoting UCC on the golf green, in a 
hockey arena or in local restaurants. 

"David's multi-faceted contributions to UCC 
extend over a remarkable 33 years," says Brad Adams, 
head of student affairs, Upper School. "It will be hard 
to think of UCC without David." 

Indeed. But colleagues hope that the years 
ahead will bring David more of what he cherishes: 
good golf, fast-paced hockey, good friends and 
creative pursuits.

Wayne Tompkins, English Teacher 

One Saturday afternoon in spring, five or 
six years ago, my family was walking along 
Cumberland Avenue when we came upon Anne 
and Wayne Tompkins. They were out enjoying 
the day. We stopped and chatted about nothing 
in particular, and then went along on our way. 

The following Monday morning, when I 
arrived at work, there in my mailbox lay a little 
treasure. Wayne had written a poem about our 
chance meeting — a quiet friendship, a little 
girl's eyes, an exquisite moment. The ordinary had become 
extraordinary because Wayne had made it so. This is what 
Wayne has done every minute of every day of his 30 years at 
UCC. He has seen the ordinary through 
different eyes and transformed it for us with his imagination. 

There are very few aspects of life at UCC that Wayne 
Tompkins has not affected. Whether it was as chair of the 
English Department, as adviser to the College Times, as senior 
house adviser to McHugh's, as co-founder of Quiddity 
magazine, or as adviser to the creative writing club and to 




Sfet~ i 



Martland's House — whatever the job in front of him, Wayne 
has done it in an extraordinary way with an apt quotation or 
a clever aside. 

Like the jazz musicians that he so much admires, Wayne 
has taken the moments in the classroom, 
the tasks after school, the conversations with students or 
colleagues and made them memorable, educational and 
interesting. All of us at UCC owe a huge thank you to Wayne, 
because he has brought to us talents that have transformed 
daily life into something special. We are truly grateful.

Harold George Campbell Parsons C37) 

The College lost a great friend when Campbell Parsons ('37) 
passed away March 16, 2004, in Toronto. 

Parsons, a fixture at UCC events, editor of the 
"Personals" column (now "Milestones") in Old Times for 53 
years, and class president for decades, passed away quietly, 
following a stroke, at his home near the College. 

Parsons was born in Toronto on April 17, 1919, the only 
child of Dr. Harold Parsons. He was enrolled at the Prep in 
September 1929, after a stint at the Hill School in 
Pennsylvania. He graduated from UCC in 1937 and then 
attended Trinity College, University of Toronto. 

During the Second World War, Parsons served overseas, 
primarily in Germany. Following his return, he had a long 
and successful career in business. 




In his younger 
days, Parsons was an 
avid sailor (a life 
member of the Royal 
Canadian Yacht Club) 
and fine tennis player. 

He and his family spent their summers at Cape Cod, a place 
he loved. 

In addition to his long service to the College, Parsons also 
volunteered at his church, St. Paul's Anglican on Bloor Street, 
for more than 50 years. 

Everyone at the College will miss his weekly visits, 
engaging smile and pleasant manner.

The 40th reunion in September was by all accounts a grand success. The 
opening Friday dinner, hosted by John Fraser and his wife, Elizabeth, at 
Massey College, set the standard, with Norm Bracht arriving from Bogota, 
Colombia, as the surprise guest. The 
Bredins and Sadleirs had a splendid 
time with their former students, 
who had aged remarkably well. The 
"stag" Saturday evening, provided 
by the UCC Association at the 
College, was followed on Sunday 
with a gourmet brunch hosted by 
Fran and Rob Woodroofe at their 
splendid home. Bob Hyland 
unhooked some tubes and, with his 
wife, Cathy, escorted me [John 
Parsons] from SMH, where I was 
temporarily residing. Chemistry 
enthusiasts were pleased to see spe- 
cial guest Keith Bonneyman and his 
lady friend. The weekend drew back 
many classmates who had gone 
missing. For me, it was a special 
treat to see Monty Wood (from 
B.C.), Simon Davies of London, 
Ont., and John Glassco, from out- 
side of Kingston, Ont., who visited 
me in the hospital. The latter two 
took up the offer to be billeted and 
stayed at the grand home of Heather 
and Mike Gardiner. Special thanks 
to Gerry Pielsticker for taking pho- 
tos and Norm Bracht for all the 
post-reunion e-mails to classmates. 




Bob Bierman came from Montreal, Joost Bakker from Vancouver and Bela 
Fejer was here from Hungary. In June, Bela subsequently hosted a mini- 
reunion of '63 in Budapest with the opening of the renovated Gresham 
Palace hotel. Tony Chisholm and his wife, Barb, were among the couples 
who participated in the reunion. Tony has since joined the College's new 
mentoring program, Common Ties; at a recent event, he was the oldest 
mentor and encouraged others to join: "Very well set up. I was quite 
impressed." Ted Simmonds attended the Association dinner at the College, 
adding to the class bachelors now participating. Ted retired from teaching 
after 20 years as head of English and now splits his time between his home 
in Caledon and cottage on a remote island in Georgian Bay. Ted continues 
to sing in a church choir, assist in the Optimist Club of Caledon and sus- 
tain his interest in wooden boats. Two classmates on opposite coasts, 
Martin Golder and Peter Ayers, couldn't attend. Martin is architecting "an 
exciting super green project" in downtown Victoria: "ground-source heat 
recharged by solar in the summer," he says. "My son is a banker, and my 
daughter a bureaucrat. Love them both, but what happened? I brought 
them up as good hippies!" Peter Ayers wandered the world before settling 
down as the only UCC Old Boy in Newfoundland, or so it seems. Peter has 
been teaching at Memorial, preceded there by his wife. They have two 
young children. Before Memorial, Peter taught in Saudi Arabia, England, 
Nigeria and at UBC, and, along the way, finished his PhD. John Fraser con- 
tinues to add to his honours, receiving an honorary Doctor of Civil Laws 
from the University of King's College in Halifax, where his eldest daughter, 
Jessie, is a student. John and his wife, Elizabeth MacCallum, recently pub- 
lished a book on Georgian Bay, Mad 
About the Bay, and John was re-elected to 
another term as master of Massey College. 
I missed mentioning last year that David 
Sisam was one of the Old Boys selected to 
exhibit in the Prep Centenary Art Show 
held in September 2002. George Pepall 
has been a regular feature at the College 
and in its publications as president of the 
Canadian Student Debating Federation 
that established strong links with UCC. 
As most '63s know, we lost classmate 
Doug Jones last year. After a long illness, 
Doug succumbed late in November. A 
celebration of Doug's life was held at the 
Rosedale Golf Club, where approximately 
400 people saw a video prepared by two of 
his children, followed by some humorous 
reminiscence. Mike Gardiner and John 
Mills attended, while Tom Leverty spoke 
and wrote an obituary: "Well-travelled, 
well read... entrepreneurial spirit... talent- 
ed athlete, who enjoyed participating in 
many sports... and a born salesman." 
Naturally, Doug's hockey career was fea- 
tured, including his trip to Switzerland 
with the Varsity Blues for the World 
Student Games in 1968. Many of Doug's 
former teammates attended.

Foundations in New York. John Bayly's passing was unexpected as he was 
dogsledding on Great Slave Lake. John leaves a large family. Married for 35 
years and living in Yellowknife for 30 years, John had a long and illustrious 
legal career that included land-claims negotiations, civil and criminal trial 
work, native-rights law and environmental law files. The Globe and Mail 
published a long article on John's life: chancellor of the Diocese of the Arctic, 
president of the NWT Law Society, and a member of the RCMP Complaints 
Commission. John attended the Prep before transferring to TCS. He was 
truly larger than life, and his early departure has saddened us all.

award to Jack's grandson, to which he replied that he "would be delighted, 
if I'm still around." John (Hafezi) Lamont married late and has a son start- 
ing kindergarten at UCC in the fall. He is practising family law (read 
"divorce law" for those who may become interested) in Yorkville, just steps 
from his Toronto home. Peter Jennings' marketing company has been inte- 
grated into a larger one that will give his clients access to a wider range of 
services. He has also written a book, now in the final editing stages. His sons 
are in university, and he and his wife Louise have 
travelled extensively in the U.S. Dr. Mike Biggs is 
practising family medicine in Newmarket, Ont. He 
and his wife Natalie have all of their children at or

time ago. Bill Szego reports that his daughter, Terri, 
will join his stockbrokerage business in September. 
Peter Salloum has joined Connor Clark and Lunn in 
the business development department after a long 
career with Sun Life. As for me, I have a growing 
financial-planning business and have just bought 
another adviser's practice. It is going well, but I am 
sure having growing pains. On a sad note, Dave (the 
original "Woody") Wood, who had a successful travel 
business, died at the end of 2003.

1972 Hugh Innes, Class President 

Richard Clayton returned to Canada from England with his wife, Anne 
Burns, and second son, Jack, for an extended vacation in August, during 
which I played golf with Richard at the fabulous Bigwin Island Golf Club 
on the Lake of Bays. He witnessed yours truly 's career drive (325 yards from 
the gold tees!), part of scoring a birdie on the 525-yd. 18th. Naturally, I 
bought the drinks! While on the other side of the pond in London, I got 
together with Richard and Robert Carsen for dinner. Robert is one of the 
most sought-after directors of opera in Europe (and North America) and 
keeps a busy schedule. Mike Berlis is selling his interest in his insurance 
agency and, together with his friend Ellen Cheslock, is moving from our 
nation's capital to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Mike has become a serious wine

half of his career in this direction. A number of classmates attended a cer- 
tain party, hosted in the fall by Neville Taylor and yours truly, which was 
billed as a "Celebration of Turning 50." From Singapore came Mark Coates, 
while from Bermuda came Joe Gibbons and from San Francisco came John 
Taylor and John Chittick. Bob Hutchinson came from North Bay, and 
local notables included Peter Rekai, Dan Andreae, Hollis Brent, Gordon 
Davies, Gary Foulds, Rein Lehari, Paul Harricks, Geoff Mills, Bruce 
Milne and James Thomson. We danced the night away to Brian Peterkin's 
fabulous band, The Neckties. I recently had lunch with Jamie Anderson. He 
and Patsy have two girls, the elder of whom is off to university this fall, and 
a son. Jamie is head of the mergers and acquisitions team at RBC-DS. He

marathons, shaving beards, comb-overs, comb-forwards and other more 
devious means of defying the aging process. Beyond that, the class contin-

homepage of Sting.com, after they successfully stalked him in a Montreal

1985 Paul Andersen, Class President 

In November 2003, in anticipation of the run-up to the LC85 20-year 
reunion, the class conducted a forward-looking planning meeting at the 
appropriately named Senior's Steakhouse, with breakout symposium ses- 
sions held immediately afterwards at nearby Scallywags. Class President 
Paul Andersen, hungry accountant, took attendance, determined a quorum 
was not achieved, skipped dessert (he was the only one who had the "large" 
Senior's Special) and relocated the group around the corner. Scallywags set 
aside considerable meeting space for us and, upon achieving quorum, Ando 



offered those in attendance an update on recent matters pertaining to the 
school, including fee structures for day boys and boarders, news on the new 
principal, and fundraising achievements. (Actually, none of this happened, 
but he did offer everyone a drink, which is far better when you think about 
it.) Philip Benson then made a motion to focus on revelry and cama- 
raderie, and several seconded this. The motion passed unanimously. Phil 
also indicated an interest in organizing LC85 seminars on good marks- 
manship in terms of both wise investing and good shooting. We have 
entrusted him with organizing a fall seminar on the latter. (Geoff Taylor 
and Alex Shaw have recendy been volunteered, 
unbeknownst to them, let us call it Guest 
Voluntarism 2004, to ensure Phil produces a fine 
get-together in the fall.) Andy Callum was in 
good form, having arrived just after a hard- 
fought men's hockey league victory. He was 
most recendy CFO of Alliance Atlantis, but 
spends most of his time whipping up cheese- 
burgers and chocolate shakes for his kids and 
chauffeuring them around to various engage- 
ments. Donald Cowper regaled many with his 
gob-smacking double life as a professional busi- 
ness and organizational voyeur. We all look for- 
ward to getting signed copies of the book and — 
some of us at least — want an option on the 
movie rights! Sometimes, when he isn't telling 
jaw-dropping tales of corporate ineffectiveness, 
Don specializes in helping organizations grow market share and increase 
productivity by improving the practice development capability of their 
advisers and agents. He is associated with the Covenant Group. Todd 
Dalglish is vice-president, investment banking, at National Bank after relo- 
cating from New York with his wife, Linda, and two boys. Walter Davison 
is vice-principal at Country Day School and offered convincing arguments 
— to more than a few Old Boys on hand — about the merits of co-educa- 
tional independent education and its favourable comparison with other 
educational models and options. Tim Fairhead continues to amaze his less 
physically diligent peers. He took home top prize for being the Old Boy least 
likely to develop a potbelly. Andy Philip, regional brand director with 
Corby Distilleries in B.C., is on record extolling the merits of Jeff Larkin's 
ab roller and took credit for his fellow Weddite's impressive appearance. 
Frank Gerstein slid by to touch base and retains his title as the best-dressed 
member of our class. He's still purchasing shopping malls and other real 
estate for Riocan. Ron Hatcher was in top shape, metaphorically, and still 
could (again metaphorically) line up defensively for the 1st Team, although 
we doubt he would be so useful on downfield punt coverage (this time lit- 
erally, not metaphorically). His private law practice is growing rapidly. He 
specializes in mortgages and real estate transactions. Brian Hardie was on 
hand to discuss with Simon Burke the merits of a liberal arts education on 
the Otonabee River, as both spent some happy days at Trent University. 
Andrew Hunter took time out from working on his power skating to drop 
in... he was in the process of launching a new company focused on "food 
for the single guy." John Langford made it! John continues to build one of 
Ontario's pre-eminent wilderness educational tour companies, Voyageur 
Quest. He seemed keen, or so we surmised, on hosting a 20-year reunion 
for some Old Boys' families in 2005. More to follow. Scott Littler was there 
and had to put up with numerous requests for "Paul Coffey time." You'd

think that Scott would be able to get his brother-in-law out to an LC85 
function now that he's retired and living in Toronto. Rajiv Persaud runs a 
printing and graphics business — check out his work on the last class 
newsletter. Rajiv also offered to be the photographer for the 20th reunion. 
John Pitblado is still leading the sweet life of an independent TV producer. 
His speciality is live-action sports. He expressed an interest in document- 
ing the age-old rivalry associated with a Wedd's-Seaton's Golden Skate 
House Hockey Championship. David Shepherd had his usual bonhomie 
and Cheshire grin on display. Shep was without his usual tan, as it looks 
like he is back to work following a short-lived early retirement after selling 
his stake in Janna Systems to Siebel in 2000. Beware Shep without a tan. Phil 
Smith, the guest analyst on CBC Business World, who broke the Janna 
Systems story back in September 2000, was as solid as usual... keeping his 
Ironman streak of perfect attendance at LC85 get-togethers intact. Phil still 
plays rugby and would be pleased to organize a side get-together to train for 
a geriatric-style wilderness 7s to be held at John Langford's log-cabin prop- 
erty next year. Those willing to make the commitment to 6 a.m. circuits 
thrice weekly in the old gym should look him up. Paul Swanson took a 
break from his job as corporate counsel to drop by and delight us with sto- 
ries of lawsuits. Paul was also in charge of the post-function entertainment. 
Richard Tattersall showed baby pictures. He continues to manage lots of 
other people's money at Heathbridge Capital. David Vasoff is with TD and 
commutes daily to downtown Toronto from his home in Barrie, Ont., 
where he lives with his family. Ted Willcocks is vice-president in charge of 
Manulife's real estate portfolio and spends most of his time travelling the 
globe. Regrets came from classmates, including Brian Cartwright, Geoff 
Courts, David Fingold, Geoff Mcllroy, Michael Stewart, Norm Hardie, 
Richard Phillips, Tom Toth, Raghu Krishnan, Ryerson Symons, David 
Webster, Nelson Jorginson, Brian Cole and David van Wees. A few of the 
lads passed along comments. "I moved to Hong Kong to join the Private 
Bank of HSBC in February. If you guys are coming over to Asia, let me 
know." — Andrew Lo. "Just had our second daughter (Rebecca) on Oct. 
26th, so spread the word to the boys! Regards from rainy Vancouver." — 
Andy Philip. "Briefly: Married August 2002 to Jill and we just became par- 
ents to Jessica Susan. I teach and run a boarding house at Shawnigan Lake 
School, where I am also (go figure) the head rowing coach. I was back east 
in the summer for Norm's wedding, which was great (my father officiated). 
For recreation, I am playing hockey, and after 30 years can finally stop a few 
shots." — David Hutchison. "I've moved to SupportSoft, where I head up 
the Digital Services Product Marketing team. Emily is now eight and 
Evelyn is three. We're still adjusting to the California sun, a bankrupt state 
economy and Ah-nuld as governor." — James Morehead. "Please say hi to 
everyone... I'd love to reconnect with any and all classmates." — John 
Stevenson. "In case you have not heard, we have a new addition to the fam- 
ily: our first child, Gillian Brooke Lee. Please send our best to everyone and 
please drop by to visit us if you ever find yourself in Boston." — Joseph Lee. 
"I'm writing to report that I will be in Africa on vacation on that date. I was 
going to say unfortunately, but since this is the trip of a lifetime that would 
be a lie. It's also a long delayed honeymoon. A brief update on me: still liv- 
ing happily in Ottawa with my wife, Jennifer Hunter (no relation to Andy 
as far as I know), no kids yet, but it's a looming possibility. I'm managing a 
one-year-old technology startup, hoping to build next-generation Internet 
hardware. It's financed by local knight Sir Terry Matthews. Recently had 
lunch with Tony Tremain, who is about to head back to Toronto after a 
brief stay here. And am planning to see John Macintosh, his wife and three 



daughters in London en route to Uganda." — Rob Steen. Here are a few 
more (non-reunion) notes: Atsushi Sunami is an associate professor (visit- 
ing scholar) at the Japanese National Institute of Science and Technology in 
Tokyo. George Brown and his wife, Jamie Thornhill, now have two boys, 
Edward (1999) and Daniel (2003). Raghu Krishnan works for the Ontario 
Legislature as a simultaneous interpreter. He and Veronica have a baby girl, 
Uma Gonzalez Krishnan, born last December 5. Tony Tremain is supply 
teaching at a number of schools, including UCC. Last note to all of you we 
have not touched base with recently, (you know who you are). Please drop 
any of Paul (paul@fa.ca), Simon (simon.burke@jus.gov.on.ca) or Ted 
(ted_willcocks@manulife.com) a line and let us know your address and
