What We’re Building Together You will notice a running theme throughout this issue of The Root. The UTS Building the Future campaign has officially launched. The unprecedented $60 million campaign has brought together alumni from throughout the decades and around the world, and we have successfully reached 65% of our goal already. My sincerest gratitude goes out to all of you who have made donations of any size. Only a short time ago, UTS renewed and finalized its Affiliation Agreement with the University of Toronto. The agreement was, however, conditional on UTS redeveloping its current home at 371 Bloor Street West. UTS’ tradition of academic, artistic, and athletic excellence will continue for at least the next 50 years as long as a state-of-theart facility is built and maintained. The future of UTS and a renewed building are therefore inextricably linked. UTS has always been, and will forever continue to be, committed to financial accessibility. The significant cost of attending these great halls is made easier by alumni who help support one in five of current students through bursary programs. With a new building in place, financial accessibility will be made easier as annual rent expenses for the next 50 years will be eliminated. The dollars that UTS will save can be easily reallocated to maintaining accessibility and aid to those who will benefit from it the most. UTS has called 371 Bloor Street West home for more than a century and, as such, the building is long overdue for a major renovation project. Putting aside the terms of the Affiliation Agreement and the impact on financial accessibility, this overhaul of the school’s site will impact students in immeasurable ways. As alumni, you have seen what UTS students have achieved using its current facilities. Just imagine what the same calibre of students will do with a technologically advanced, cutting-edge campus that still maintains the standards of excellence for which UTS has long been known. UTS alumni will continue to make a positive impact on society locally, nationally, and internationally. The UTS community has a unique opportunity to come together to lay the foundation for a future of prolonged, sustainable excellence. We will do this in a space that has maintained an unparalleled reputation of greatness for over 100 years. We have built an extraordinary past. Now is the time to use our remarkable talents to help build the future.

THE ROOT | FALL 2017

As a graduate, parent of an alumnus, and the current Chair of the UTS Board of Directors, I’ve always seen UTS as a unique school. Having what is arguably the most diverse student body among independent schools in the city, UTS is truly the face of Toronto. Over our storied history, UTS has produced leaders in the community, the country, and even internationally. As you may be aware, our alumni include 55 Orders of Canada, 20 Rhodes Scholars, 15 Olympians, three Ambassadors, and two Nobel Laureates. You can truly see the strong magnetic pull on those who thrive on a high calibre of education. As the Chair of the Building the Future campaign, I find it remarkable and feel a great sense of pride when I think about how much UTS students have been able to accomplish in our current facilities, limited as they are. Imagine how much more we can achieve in a bigger, better, more modern space! Thanks to our renewed Affiliation Agreement with U of T, UTS is staying at its original home of 371 Bloor Street West. Keeping to our roots is important in an historic and nostalgic sense. We remain at the heart of the city, on U of T’s downtown campus. This location benefits our students by giving them access to university faculty and facilities, thus providing them with the very best in education. We are able to take advantage of our space, and moreover enhance it with this new construction and a long overdue upgrade to our facilities. In every sense, our Building the Future campaign is an unprecedented opportunity to make such a big difference in the lives of our students, teachers, and the community at large. We need everyone’s commitment. Give what you can. Give till it feels good.

This is the time. It is the time for all of us – alumni, parents, students and staff – to come together as a community and do all that we can to build the future of our school. After over a decade of planning, we have launched our $60 million capital campaign to revitalize our beloved school and build anew. A renewed facility will provide our students with a state-of-the-art, technologically advanced learning environment in keeping with the high-calibre, global curriculum at UTS. To be successful, an unprecedented level of support is required from each and every one of us. As Al Fleming ’54 put it, this happens only once every 106 years! Alumni have asked about our commitment to the UTS Bursary program during the campaign. Thanks to the Preserving the Opportunity campaign in the 1990s and subsequent donations from alumni, parents and staff, the UTS Foundation holds one of the largest bursary endowments amongst independent schools in Canada. For the 2017-2018 school year, one in five UTS students will receive bursary support ranging from 5% to full tuition. The school is still receiving new donations in support of our commitment to financial accessibility. I have also been asked about size of donation. My answer is to give a thoughtful gift. If we all donate what we can – at any level – together we will secure the future of a UTS education. You may pledge over five years, make monthly donations, or give through the University of Toronto or foundations in the USA and UK. Tax receipts will be issued for all gifts. We are here to help. Please contact me at mdrake@utschools.ca or 416-946‑0097 to make your campaign donation or ask questions about the Building the Future campaign. This is the time to build the future of UTS.


A NEW DIRECTION Over the past academic year, UTS undertook an initiative to review and refresh our strategic plan. This exercise involved engaging the entire community – alumni, parents, staff, and students – in considering the changing landscape of education with a particular focus on work and life, as well as how UTS should continue to direct our energies and resources. We reviewed our current strategy with constituent groups and held two exciting multi-constituent evenings where the UTS community discussed emerging trends. Our Board of Directors and administrative team also spent several sessions wrestling with the issues. In the end, we generated a graphic representation of our priorities as a school. The inner circle of the graphic represents our purpose as a school. We came to the realization that UTS students are distinguished by their curiosity, deeper learning, initiative, and innovation. These attributes help our students flourish and make a difference as socially responsible global citizens. This year, we will be continuing our ongoing efforts to develop specific actions to bring this graphic to life. Furthermore, we will be using data visualization tools to assist us as we clarify and assess our progress. For example, what are the attributes that we need to focus on and what are reasonable short-term and long-term goals in matters of wellness and access? Improved nutrition, sufficient sleep, positive mental health, concussion management, exercise – these are some of the wellness dimensions that we actively support at UTS. Similarly, if we want the UTS experience to be available to students throughout the Greater Toronto Area, how can we best enhance our outreach to communities where students are not applying to the school? Our new strategic plan will guide our actions.

Look who dropped by for a visit on a hot July day … the daughter and grandchildren of the first Headmaster at UTS, H.J. "Bull" Crawford. Yes, he was that Crawford of the Crawford Knights and the H.J. Crawford Award. Standing in front of the portrait of their father and grandfather outside the library are (L-R) Blaine Peet, Eleanor (Grant) Peet and Sharon Peet. Bull’s daughter Eleanor and granddaughter Sharon are holding copies of the UTS Centennial Book by Jack Batten ’50.

In July, UTS debaters scored an impressive victory at the World Schools Debate Academy Tournament in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. More than just representing Toronto, UTS was the only North American school to compete with approximately 200 debaters from 25 other countries at the prestigious international championship. Our senior team placed first in team rankings and our junior team placed 13th. Although it was a team effort, it should be mentioned that the best speaker of the tournament was our very own Adithya Chakravarthy (S6/Grade 12), who scored a remarkable average of 75.3 speaker points.

THE ROOT | FALL 2017

In May 2017, several UTS students attended, competed, and dominated at the Canadian Chemistry Olympiad (CCO) at the University of Toronto. In fact, nine of the top ten scores were from UTS students! S6 (Grade 12) students Hermish Mehta and Raluca Petrut were selected to represent Canada for the CCO Team as two of the top four chemistry students in the country. Competing on the global stage at the International Chemistry Olympiad in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand in July, UTS students took on participants from 75 other countries. Hermish brought home a silver medal and Raluca received an Honourable Mention.

“We’re never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy.” The M3/Grade 9 Drama Ensemble explored the absurd with its performance of Eugene Ionesco’s The Bald Soprano. Anyka Bhamjee says that the play is quite a departure from the norm and is full of “really weird things: one second we’ll be sitting on top of chairs, and the next second the chairs are flipped over and we’re jumping off of them. You never know what’s going to happen."

The Varsity Girls soccer team hosted the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) championship in June 2017. Before the tournament began, the Blues were treated to an inspirational speech from Cassidy Kunicyn ’14, who reminded the girls that the real goal is to have fun. The team responded one week later by not only having fun, but winning its first ever league championship in varsity soccer! The team members extended their sincerest gratitude to MCO Orthodontics and Jason Tam ’95 for their spectacular new uniforms.

UTS keeps students engaged and thinking throughout the year. The school was buzzing this summer with activities that focused young minds on everything from building the future (see what we did there?) to creating computer games, having fun with physics, and even growing tomatoes in space. Some of our groups included: • • • • • • • •

M

idway through last year, Edward Tian ’18 , founder of Envision City – the school’s urban planning club – received an interesting offer. Josh Fullan, the founder of Maximum City and staff advisor to Envision City, had been approached by Principal Rosemary Evans. She wanted students to lead the community consultations about the future of the parkette on the east side of the property. Jumping at the chance, Edward and a group of students conducted more than 100 interviews and reported their findings to the building committee.

“It was fascinating to talk to residents about the project,” says Edward. “There was a range of opinions and perspectives, such as whether there could be water in the new park or what would happen during construction. It was an amazing way to learn about urban development.” An opportunity to apply his knowledge of urban planning heightened Edward’s appreciation of the progressive nature of learning at UTS. “The fact that we are constantly trying to change and adapt is praiseworthy,” he explains. “The school has a long history, yet we always look for ways to improve the experience. That commitment to change embodies the spirit of UTS.” Edward’s experience applying urban planning principles is just one example of how integrated modes of learning have become the norm at UTS. True to its lab school roots, the school continues to reinvent how students learn. But the technological and pedagogical revolution occurring in education has put pressure on the facilities. “If you want a building that can support 21st century learning, you need a 21st century building,” says John Duffy ’81, who knows firsthand about the tectonic tension between the facility and the program. He was intimately involved in the Affiliation Agreement process, which featured extensive discussions about the building. He and his wife Jill Presser ’87 also have two UTS daughters, Martine ’17 and Simone ’21.

“Learning is far more interactive than it was 100 years ago,” says John. “There is more collaboration. More participation. Much less of the sage on the stage. This means that traditional classroom boxes and a lack of common areas are significant limitations. Today, education requires interactive spaces that support a range of technological resources and the kind of group learning that was unheard of when the school was built. This is the way young people are educated everywhere, from business schools on down to kindergarten.” John’s long career in Canadian and international politics also gives him a strong sense of how 10

UTS is regarded internationally. Retaining the school’s status as a world leader is imperative to the campaign. “UTS students are competing against the best talent from all over the world,” he says. “All of our competitor jurisdictions – places like Beijing, San Francisco, London and Chicago – have facilities like this. There is no better investment than helping to provide the best physical environment for the best learners that our city, province and country can produce.” One of those learners is Taylor Shirtliff-Hinds ’17, who was a School Captain last year and is now attending Harvard. Taylor sees the campaign as a commitment to nurture one of the school’s distinctive features. “The strength of UTS is the people we have here. You realize how cohesive the entire community is. The students are super supportive, not just within the grade, but across all of the grades. The teachers are always there to help you. It’s incredible. It only makes sense to have a building that is just as awesome as the people.” Marianne Anderson P’ 17, who is co-chair of the campaign cabinet and a member of the board, agrees that the secret sauce of UTS is in the intersection of people and programs. “I think it is a combination of really interesting and engaged kids and exceptional faculty members who offer a remarkable breadth of programming,” she says. “I have met a lot of teachers over the years and they are fantastic. They set a high standard, yet they are really kind and engaged with the students. UTS establishes an environment where diverse interests are celebrated and fostered.” Japanese taiko drumming is one of those programs. Led by volunteer Anthony Lee ’86, the group has been in operation for nine years and recently won a Platinum Award at the Toronto Kiwanis Music Festival. His experience with current students solidified his view that a space can enhance learning and growth. “The setting goes beyond students and teachers,” he says. “It has an effect on the mindset. The facilities should reflect the new world.” The seismic shift that the new building will cause in the UTS learning landscape has been carefully planned. Priorities identified by alumni, parents, staff, and students helped define the elements of the new design. Interactions between students and teachers will be amplified by spaces like an indoor sky-lit atrium that connects all of the floors and sections of the

school. Contemporary modes of learning will be supported by flexible classrooms, leading-edge science and computer labs, and a modernized library and learning commons. In addition, programs will be enriched by extensive athletic and artistic spaces such as a double gym, a suite of music rooms, a 700-seat auditorium, and yoga, dance and visual art studios. The school will also retain its heritage façade, so that the history of 371 is never far from view. This commitment to celebrating the past while moving toward the future is applauded by alumni like Monica Biringer ’78. As a campaign co-chair and member of the first class of young women to come through the school, Monica has a strong sense of how history and progress align at UTS.

“I couldn’t be happier with where we’ve landed in the quest to rebuild UTS,” she says. “We’ve managed to get the best of the old and the new by renewing our affiliation with the university and staying at 371 Bloor Street. At the same time, we are able to build a school that makes us current with greatly increased physical space and state-of-the-art facilities.” Like many alumni, Monica sees the campaign as an opportunity to act on her deep connection to the school. “I do not exaggerate when I say that UTS changed my life’s course,” she says. “I had outstanding teachers who taught me how to be intellectually curious, and I made wonderful friends who I still see regularly. I am indebted to

the school and will always do what I can to see it prosper and secure its future. So agreeing to be a co-chair for the building campaign was an easy decision.” Monica’s sentiment is widely shared. Whenever John is thanked for contributing to UTS, he invariably says, “Anything for the school – I owe it so much.” Describing its lasting impact, Marianne points out that her daughter Olivia AndersonClarke ’17 “says the school is the best thing that ever happened in her life.” This spirit of gratitude is motivating people to step forward and pitch in. To cite just one example, Anthony Lee, the Class of 1986 rep, led his classmates in a major fundraising initiative. “For our 30th reunion, we wanted to see how much we could raise. About half of our class showed up. At this point, we are at about $130,000. We were the first alumni class to fully fund a classroom in the new building. It feels great. My friends and interests are the foundation that UTS gave me.” Summarizing the diverse perspectives that alumni, students and parents have on the revitalization, Chair of the UTS Board Jim Fleck C.C. ’49 P ’72 says, “I think we all understand that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to give back. Through Building the Future, we can ensure that UTS continues to develop national and international leaders for generations to come.” n

“The future is rooted in the past. My father and uncle went to a UTS that was essentially the same as the UTS I attended. As students, we were being trained for the past with a nod to the future. I am so proud of what the school has become: the students are being trained for the future. Now it is time for the building to evolve!”

“The UTS rebuild will provide future students with one critical element that has been missing from the school for many years: a beautiful new, technologicallyadvanced building specifically designed to help them learn, develop, and reach their academic potential.”

“We’re the University of Toronto Schools for a reason: we’ve been dedicated from the start to the ideals of excellence, education and nation-building that inspired a great university. By revitalizing this facility for an age of digital discovery and artificial intelligence, sustainable growth and space exploration, poverty elimination and global citizenship, the school is doubling down on its strengths, staying true to its roots, keeping it real and coming home.”

“The essence of UTS can be found in the interplay of three relationships: teacher and student, student and student, and student to society. These will continue to be essential. However, technology has not stood still. The pace of change demands that our building be updated for the future. Let’s help make UTS even better!”

“The breadth and richness of my UTS education is thanks to the diverse friends I made there from all over Toronto. I’m so glad UTS has found a way to maintain its home at the heart of the city and deepen the tradition of diversity and access for generations to come.”

“The way young people learn is undergoing a transformation with new innovations and tools at our disposal for both teaching and learning. For UTS to continue to be a model school, we need to upgrade our facilities so it will thrive in the future."

“While people remain the core of UTS, the space in which our young global leaders develop has to catch up with their incredible aspirations and talents. Let us all play a part!”

Future of Education

The

by Karen Sumner

There are some questions that are almost too big to ask – or answer. One of them might be “what is the future of education?” We live in a time of such rapid change that it is near impossible to accurately predict what the next few decades will bring. Additionally, the meaning of the question changes depending on whom you ask. A  government official? A software developer? A biomedical engineer? A teacher in this country or elsewhere?

14

THE ROOT | FALL 2017


But a few established and emerging themes can be identified. Some have arisen from global trends, others from the evolution of technology, and yet others from a growing demand for non-cognitive mental skills. What will the future of education bring? Below are a handful of themes shaping that answer today – and thoughts from some of our teachers and alumni about where we are headed.

Urbanization and Sustainability In 1950, 30% of the world’s population was urban. By 2050, that figure is expected to reach 66%. In addition, those who continue to live in rural areas will be increasingly dependent upon cities for social, economic and political resources. Students will face the pressures of a more urbanized world: highly diverse populations; increasingly unequal wealth distribution; outmoded or over-stressed social services; dwindling access to affordable housing; high demand for clean water; insufficient waste management systems; and high energy consumption – to name a few. Urbanization is not all bad news, but it and other environmental challenges place a demand on schools to educate for sustainability. For example, students working in the community rather than the classroom acquire direct experience with citizenship, problem solving and decision making. Schools must graduate informed and active citizens with the skills needed to address local and global challenges.

JOSH FULLAN, FOUNDER OF MAXIMUM CITY, UTS OUTREACH COORDINATOR AND FRENCH TEACHER

Maximum City provides an urban education that helps students transition from informed local citizens to active global stewards. “To teach the future when we can’t predict it,” explains Josh, “Maximum City builds problem solvers. The pedagogy is based on a process instead of a subject.” It’s challenging for schools to address the urban shift and the issues that come with it. UTS and Maximum City have partnered to offer projectbased summer learning modules to students from around the GTA on topics such as cities as systems, civic engagement and landscape architecture. Students are given rich problem-solving tasks and produce tangible outcomes. “In this way,” says Josh, “Maximum City is building leaders who will be able to solve the problems of tomorrow, in Canadian cities and urban centres around the world.”

ABOVE: Eleanor Rae ’02 of Maximum City at the head of the class. BELOW: Josh Fullan, UTS Outreach Coordinator, French teacher and founder and director of Maximum City.

ELEANOR RAE ’02, PROJECT COORDINATOR, MAXIMUM CITY

Eleanor agrees that students will face concerns directly related to urbanization, such as mobility, climate change and demographic shifts. “Dealing with these challenges will require education to be more collaborative,” says Eleanor, “which is what Maximum City focuses on. Students are encouraged to be the creators of their own education, which is a marked shift from the past.” That emphasis on creativity and collaboration prepares students for the fact that while change is inevitable, specific changes are difficult to predict. As engaged participants who learn how to shape outcomes, students are better prepared to face THE UTS ALUMNI MAGAZINE

the issues that come from living and working together on a much larger scale. “They have to be agents of change who help to create that future,” says Eleanor.

Advances in Technology Driverless cars are here. So are 3-D printed bones, gene replacement therapy, and supercomputers collecting real-time data to make on-the-fly infrastructure decisions. In what has been called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, new technologies are blurring the boundaries between physical, digital and biological worlds – and changing the way we live, work and teach our students. Education is undergoing a transformation so that graduates will prosper in a world of lightning-speed technological change. Cloud computing already grants students around-the-clock access to learning resources and real-time opportunities to collaborate with others, even across continents. Many schools have already introduced biometric devices, such as fingerprint scanners for keeping attendance and eye-tracking software that delivers content based on where students direct their attention.

THE ROOT | FALL 2017

DR. JEFF GRAHAM ’76, U OF T ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR AND DEVELOPER OF DECKCHAIR LEARNING

DeckChair Learning delivers lab-tested online technology to help educators create adaptive, performance-based environments customized to each student’s personal progress. This helps students learn at their own pace. “The future of online learning is centred on the idea that if Google can use ad placement algorithms to maximize the advertisers’ revenue, we can use similar technologies to personalize content and maximize learners’ achievement gains,” explains Jeff, who works with alumnus Alan Sura ’76 on DeckChair, which also collaborates with science teacher Jennifer Howell. Neural networks – computer systems modelled on the human brain and nervous system – are improving at an astronomical rate. This allows for a tailored curriculum design that reduces demands on teachers while also benefitting students. “Most curricula aim for the middle of student

achievement. Online technologies are capable of recognizing ‘desirable difficulty’ levels, continually refining content and optimizing learning.” ADAM GREGSON, TEACHER OF MATH AND COMPUTER STUDIES

The future will see artificial intelligence learning systems in the classroom. It’s hard to know exactly what technology will stick, but there are artificial intelligence education features that will be able to synthesize and produce curricula, personalize learning for students, and help to teach classes. In addition, virtual reality will become cheaper and more powerful. “It will likely become a vital tool in the classroom for teaching science – think about dissections, chemical mixtures or experiences too dangerous for real life, like entering volcanoes to see how they work,” says Adam. Language learning is another rich area: “Students could transport to Tokyo to speak with a ‘local.’” Depending on the subject, a virtual reality environment could take the place of a traditional classroom. What else should the future bring? “Computer Studies will have to become a mandatory subject if Canada wants to compete internationally.”

Non-Cognitive Mental Skills Preparing students for a world and workplace characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity means placing a heightened emphasis on teaching mental and social skills like critical thinking, creativity and the ability to collaborate on teams. These non-cognitive skills are acquired through learning processes and social interactions rather than reasoning. With a limited ability to predict what the future will bring, there is growing demand for a rich blend of intellectual, interpersonal and emotional skills. ANAND MAHADEVAN, HEAD OF ACADEMICS

Touching on issues of urbanization and technology, Anand says that the future will be determined by open-mindedness and empathy.


“Learning experiences should be immersive and emphasize that there is not just one correct answer,” he explains. “Students need to know that it’s okay to make mistakes and learn to challenge their own assumptions.” When teachers illustrate that there are many sides to a story and several routes to solving problems, students acquire valuable mental skills such as perspective shifting and adaptability. These qualities will be increasingly relevant in urban centres like Toronto. “One big challenge will be how schools react to ‘in your face’ diversity,” explains Anand. “Our soft approach to multiculturalism will become a thing of the past, so we are educating students to contribute to a future society whose rules have not yet been written.” DR. PERICLES LEWIS ’86, VICE PRESIDENT FOR GLOBAL STRATEGY, YALE UNIVERSITY

As jobs get more complex, there is a need for a broader scope of education that includes developing a student’s curiosity, mental flexibility and yearning for knowledge. “Making learning less about homework and tests and more about inspiring students to think critically is essential for an increasingly interconnected and globalized world,” says Pericles. “The future of education at UTS,” he continues, “should be linked to the future of U of T. Students have access to intellectual resources and facilities that are not available to many others of their age. In addition, they need the kind of life and thinking

skills that can be acquired through programs such as the Model United Nations.” MARC BRIMS, TEACHER OF HISTORY, GEOGRAPHY AND WORLD ISSUES

“The future is uncertain,” says Marc, “and as such, our preparedness for the future is uncertain. Teachers need to help students apply skills such as resilience, adaptability, creativity and critical analysis.” How best to develop and practice these mental attributes? “The more students are engaged in their learning – for example, in issues of sustainability, equity and migration – the better their skill development. We can best foster student engagement through place-based, experiential learning.” Taking action rather than just having discussions is needed to prepare students for a future that’s hard to grasp. “Have students join NGOs as active participants,” Marc suggests. “Learning experiences need to be grounded in practice, not just theory” We can also look to the past to teach the future. “Understanding the history of Indigenous peoples offers valuable lessons in how to go forward.”

LOOKING FORWARD

Despite the rapid changes in demography and technology that are placing real demands on educators, a case could be made that the future of education will depend more on values and attitudes than populations and devices. As many of our teachers and alumni have suggested, mental flexibility and openness to change are vital adaptive qualities in an uncertain world. Teaching students how to envision new possibilities and engage with multiplicity may be the best preparation for a world they can’t yet see. n THE UTS ALUMNI MAGAZINE

In June 2017, Harold Atwood ’55 was elected and installed as the second Principal of Senior College at the University of Toronto, succeeding Peter Russell ’51 , who was the founding Principal in 2009. The mission of Senior College is to support the continuing scholarly, professional and creative activities of retired professors, and it has become a model for similar organizations in Canada and elsewhere.

Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada and Bob Lord ’58

In June 2017, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, presented Bob Lord ’58 with the YMCA’s most prestigious award: The Fellowship of Honour. A lifelong volunteer, Bob served as Chairman of the Board of Directors at the YMCA of Edmonton as well as the YMCA of Greater Toronto. Twisted Traffick is the second novel in the Twisted trilogy penned by Geza Tatrallyay ’67. Released in October 2017 by Black Opal Books, this international crime thriller takes the protagonists from Twisted Reasons (pictured) on a wild ride through Vienna, parts of Eastern Europe, and the former USSR as they investigate a

kidnapping by nuclear-material-stealing human traffickers. Geza has also written Twisted Fates, slated for publication next year, thus completing the series. As well, his collection of poems entitled Sighs and Murmurs (P.R.A. Publishing) will come out in November. Melville: A Novel is the second Jean Giono translation by Paul Eprile ’72 . It was released in September 2017 by New York Review Books. The book is described as part biography, part philosophical rumination, part romance and part unfettered fantasy. Paul’s expressive translation once again brings Giono’s novel to a wider audience.

// Adding to an already altruistic alumni attitude, Timothy Birnie ’77 celebrated the 50th anniversary of his eponymous firm by presenting a large sum of money to a Toronto hospital in April 2017. The funds, which were raised through silent auction, will go toward helping treat children with mild to severe burns. // Sandy McIntyre ’71 is the executive vice chairman and director of Sentry Investments, a firm that celebrated Canada’s sesquicentennial by donating $150,000 and 150 volunteer hours to Believe to Achieve. In May 2017, Sentry also delivered 20 laptops to the North York-based nonprofit organization, which helps at-risk youth through after school mentorship and personal development programs.

// Arguably all of our alumni have an interesting story to tell, but how many of them are worthy of sharing screen time with Al Pacino and Melanie Griffith? Jay Bahadur ’02 co-wrote the screenplay for Dabka, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2017. Based on Jay’s incredible true story, the film follows our UTS alumnus through Somalia, where pirates have just taken control of a Ukrainian arms shipment. Did we mention that, at the time, Jay had absolutely no experience as a journalist? Follow Jay on his haphazardly planned 2009 adventure and watch it turn into a story of integrity, friendship and fortitude.

In April 2017, Karen Von Hahn ’78 released What Remains: Object Lessons in Love and Loss (House of Anansi Press), a memoir of Karen’s mother, Susan Young. Each chapter focuses on a different nostalgic object. Ranging from satin sofas to cigarettes, the often glamourous items paint a grand picture of a larger-than-life character. The memoir begins with a symbolic simplicity, using the last word Karen heard from her mother: “pearls.” The Burning Girl (WW Norton) is the latest novel by bestselling author Claire Messud ’83. Released in August 2017, this coming-ofage tale weaves together the stories of Julia and Cassie, former best friends. Narrated by Julia, this modern fable is an intricate look at how we view youth, friendship, and the battle between childhood imagination and the reality of adulthood. Claire presented the novel at a reading in the Toronto Public Library Reading Series in October 2017.

Lisa K. Valencia-Svennson ’86 won the

In April 2017,

Canadian Hillman Prize for Journalism at a ceremony held in Toronto in March 2017 for her film Migrant Dreams. She was also honoured by the Hillman Foundation for the same film at a ceremony in May. Tackling the issue of exploited foreign workers in Canada, her film debuted at Hot Docs in May 2016 and was broadcast on TVO in September the same year. The Sidney Hillman Foundation honours investigative journalists who are dedicated to serving the common good. Migrant Dreams also won the CWA Canada/CAJ Award for Labour Reporting.

UTS is honoured to announce Bruce MacLean and Jim Fleck, C.C. ‘49, P ‘72 as the recipients of this year’s H.J. Crawford Award. Bruce “Nails” MacLean has been an institution at UTS for decades as a teacher, coach and UTS supporter. Even at 106 years old, Bruce thinks about UTS and building its future. Upon retiring from UTS, he maintained his interest in the school, including becoming a significant donor and attending annual alumni events. In 2000, Bruce established the Wilma and Bruce MacLean Bursary Fund to support qualifying students. The respect he commands from those he taught and coached is best summed up by the generosity of their donations in his name, which vaulted him into “Founder” status. Bruce is highly esteemed in the world of mathematics, having been involved in the creation of 28 high school textbooks that, at one point, were being used in every province of Canada. Outside of UTS, Bruce has supported Evangel Hall Mission since his teen years. For the past five years, he has used his birthday party to provide dinner for the mission's clientele. As Chair of the UTS Board, Chair of the Project Steering Committee,

Jim Fleck and Bruce MacLean

and Chair of the Building the Future campaign, Jim has been an indefatigable supporter of the school and its place as Ontario’s model for excellence in education. As one of the engineers of the Affiliation Agreement between UTS and U of T, Jim is securing the future of UTS. Jim’s accomplishments are too numerous to fully encapsulate. As an entrepreneur, he was Chairman and CEO of Fleck Manufacturing Inc., which he founded in 1954. As an educator, he has taught at York University, Keio Business School in Tokyo, INSEAD, the Rotman School of Management, and the Harvard Business School. As a civil servant, Jim has served the Ontario Government as Chief Executive Officer in the Office of the Premier, Secretary of the Cabinet, and Deputy Minister of Industry and Tourism.

as was humanly possible. He has left us all an incredible legacy of love and accomplishment. Peter was a fourth generation Toronto Islander where his grandparents were the lighthouse keepers. He attended a threeroom schoolhouse on the Island, went to high school at UTS and completed his degrees at the University of Toronto. It was at McMaster University, however, that he really made his mark. He joined the faculty in 1965, was awarded an honorary degree in 2005, and retired as President Emeritus in 2010. His 15 years as McMaster President were marked by a campus building boom; he was fond of joking about having an “edifice complex.” Peter oversaw the opening and early stages of the development of McMaster Innovation Park and was instrumental in building the McMaster University Student Centre, fulfilling a promise that had dated back generations. His visionary leadership and personal touch raised McMaster to new heights , as it expanded in size, budget, buildings, athletics, programs, innovation, fundraising and world ranking. Peter was essential in proving the economic value of the traditional Indigenous way of life and was called to testify for the James Bay Cree during

their successful case against Hydro Ontario over sovereignty of their lands. As Dean of Social Sciences, he was instrumental in starting innovative programs in Women’s Studies, Labour Studies, and Indigenous Studies. He was President of the Council of Ontario Universities from 1990 to 1995, building it into a strong advocacy group for higher education in the province. Peter was a stalwart supporter of UTS and served on the Honorary Cabinet of the Building the Future campaign. Among his many honours, Peter was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 1999, a Member of the Order of Ontario in 2007, and received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012. In his final lecture, delivered before his retirement, Peter said, “I gave my life to education because there is nothing better than bearing witness to the opening of the human mind and spirit.” JOSEPH BENJAMIN MCARTHUR 1928-2017 When Joseph McArthur ’46 passed away peacefully on May 10, 2017, shortly before his


Alumni News

89th birthday, UTS lost a loyal and steadfast supporter. Joe served on the Board of Directors of the UTS Alumni Association from 1995 until 2001. Since 2003, he had been a very effective Year Rep for the Class of 1946, organizing his fellow classmates for reunions and fundraising projects for his beloved UTS. Over the years, Joe tracked down many of his classmates who had left Toronto and re-established worthwhile contact with them. Joe also initiated frequent visits and dinners with many aging classmates here in Toronto. He was a model citizen. After five eventful high school years at UTS, Joe attended the University of Toronto (Victoria College), where he earned his BA. Following graduation in 1950, Joe joined Moore Corporation as a mail boy then rose through the ranks in the financial side of Moore, gaining a CA degree along the way. In 1970, Moore moved Joe and his young family to Lafayette, California into a senior financial role there, then on to Chicago for three years before bringing him back to Toronto in 1981 as General Manager of Moore’s Canadian operations. He gained further responsibilities and retired in 1998 in Toronto as Vice-Chairman and CFO of Moore Corporation worldwide. Always a sportsman, Joe was a good golfer, an accomplished skier and a strong swimmer. He was also a good father, helping his children with sports; for many years, he was a local recreation league soccer coach. In his sixties, he played platform tennis regularly with a group of old friends. He persisted with golf into 2017. Joe is survived by his loving wife Connie. He was predeceased by his beloved first wife, Margery Jane Armstrong, in 2000. Joe leaves his children Lynn, Hal, and Ted (Ethel); step-children Jennifer Lee (Anthony) and Christopher Tyler (Allison); and 14 grandchildren. Joe made friends wherever he went, was always a presence larger than life, was never without an opinion and always ready for a laugh. A wonderful man with

a “let’s do it” outlook on life, he was admired and is sadly missed by all those lucky enough to have known him. – Rob Dowsett ’46 MICHAEL SHOEMAKER, QC 1933-2017 Michael Shoemaker ’52 died on June 16

in Victoria, BC at the age of 83. His intellect and well-roundedness were recognized by his classmates as he won the Nesbitt Gold Medal and was chosen Class Valedictorian in 1952. In his final year at Trinity College, 5T6, he was President of the Students’ Administrative Council (SAC) and in 1959 graduated with an LLB from the U of T Law School. Later, in 1995, he earned an LLM from the University of Ottawa Law School. Ottawa was home for nearly four decades, where Mike forged an illustrious career in the public service. He served as an Assistant Secretary to Cabinet, Executive Director of the CRTC, and Senior Assistant Deputy Solicitor General. He retired in 1994 as RCMP Deputy Commissioner. His career in public service earned him a federal QC,

the Public Service Award of Excellence from the Governor General, and the Queen Elizabeth Golden Jubilee Medal. Mike and Brenda, his beloved wife of 50 years, raised three sons and two daughters, all of whom married, live variously in Australia and Beijing, and have blessed them with 13 grandchildren. Mike and Brenda moved to North Saanich, BC in 1995 where he enjoyed routine pleasures including grocery shopping, cutting firewood, afterdinner card games with his children and grandchildren, the Montreal Expos, and the Toronto Raptors games on his PVR. A celebration of Mike`s life was held on July 15 in Ottawa. We have lost an accomplished classmate, a devoted family man, and a well-recognized public servant. - Gerald Crawford ’52

LOOKING BACK

The Cairn

Oral Tradition

Egyptian Hieroglyphics

Picture Writing

The Manuscript Book

The Printing Press

LUNETTES Three paintings by American artist John White Alexander have been greeting visitors to the school’s auditorium since 1910. They are from a series of six paintings entitled Evolution of the Book, commissioned by the US Library of Congress. Mathematician Tommy Porter decided to purchase the lunettes, and he secured the money for Oral Tradition. The students raised funds for The Manuscript Book, and student-teachers at the Faculty of Education paid for The Printing Press. Looking at the remaining three lunettes, it seems apparent why only half the series was purchased. The (gasp!) female nudes in the series would have been quite the distraction for the boys of the early 20th century.
