To  those  of  us  on  the  'inside'  at  St.  Andrew's  today,  much  has  been  written  and  talked 
about  in  the  creation  of  two  major  events  upcoming  for  the  College. 

One  is  the  "double  cohort"  issue,  the  provincially-mandated  elimination  of  grade  thirteen 
by  June  2003;  the  other  is  the  School's  ambitious  twenty-year  Campus  Master  Plan. 

The  double  cohort,  or  as  we  prefer  to  call  it,  "Countdown  to  '03",  will  be  covered  in 
detail  in  the  fall  edition  of  The  Andrean.  As  you  can  imagine,  graduating  two  classes 
simultaneously  in  June  '03  is  unprecedented  in  School  history  and  requires  a  tremendous 
amount  of  planning — much  of  which  has  already  been  done. 

In  this  issue  we  are  delighted  to  bring  you  up  to  date  with  our  Campus  Master  Plan. 
Andrean  writer  and  piper  extraordinaire,  Jim  McGillivray,  interviews  the  Headmaster  and 
gives  the  reader  a  sense  of  what  has  transpired  strategically  in  the  past  two  years  leading 
to  our  plan  for  the  future. 

The  Campus  Master  Plan  will  see  St.  Andrew's  strengthen  our  strengths,  address  our 
weaknesses  and  emerge  at  the  end  of  it  as  the  premier  boys'  boarding/day  school  in  Canada. 

On  the  cover  of  The  Andrean  we  feature  an  oil  painting  of  the  campus  by  Steve 
McDonald  '88  and  Rob  Saley  '89,  a  gift  of  the  artists  for  the  School's  Centennial  Art  Show. 

Also  in  this  issue  are  profiles  of  Mac  Frost  '40,  Mike  Brewer  '88  and  Philip  Henderson  78, 
three  Old  Boys  at  different  stages  in  their  careers  but  each  one  clearly  a  leader  in  his  field. 

We  welcome  the  latest  faculty  members  of  St.  Andrew's,  each  of  whom  will  further 
strengthen  the  education  offered  the  young  men  at  the  College. 

Last  spring  generous  donations  from  Old  Boys,  parents  and  friends  resulted  in  over 
$500,000  being  raised  to  help  fund  the  $650,000  total  renovation  and  rejuvenation  of  our 
much-revered  Flavelle  House.  A  very  special  evening  of  celebration  was  held  last  fall  on 
the  occasion  of  its  re-dedication. 

Our  other  regular  features  are  also  included.  Please  be  sure  to  register  'on  line'  at  and  click  on  the  alumni  tab.  Also  check  the  web  site  regularly  for  news

Campus  Master  Plan: 

heralding  an  unprecedejzted  era  of  revitalizqlicm 


I  n  the  history  of  St.  Andrew's 
College,  we  look  back  on  1899  as 
the  year  of  creation,  1926  as  a 
momentous  era  of  relocation  to 
Aurora,  and  on  1962,  1972  and  1979 
as  times  of  great  physical  expansion. 
Chances  are,  the  years  from  2001 
onward,  as  envisioned  in  the  current 
twenty-year  'Campus  Master  Plan', 
will  hold  similar  importance  to 
future  S.A.C.  historians  as  landmark 
years  of  revitalization. 

"The  time  has  come  once  again 
to  rejuvenate  our  buildings,"  says 
Headmaster  and  prime  motivator 
Ted  Staunton,  "so  that  St.  Andrew's 
College  can  maintain  its 
pre-eminent  standing  among 
independent  schools  in  Canada." 

And  what  a  rejuvenation  it  will  be: 
the  twenty-year  Campus  Master 
Plan  has  defined  the  need  for  a 
new  Middle  School,  a  completely 
revamped  Ketchum  Auditorium,  a 
spacious  central  Atrium,  new  art 
and  music  facilities,  a  second  major 
gymnasium,  reconfiguration  of 
McLaughlin  Hall,  Great  Hall 
renovations,  possibly  an  on-campus 
arena  and  countless  improvements 
to  the  grounds  and  other  buildings. 
As  Board  of  Governors  Chairman 
Brian  Armstrong  said  at  a  recent 
meeting,  "It  will  be  an  undertaking 
the  magnitude  of  which  the  school 
has  not  experienced  since  1926." 

This  comes  hot  on  the  heels  of 
$2  million  of  major  summer 
renovations  over  the  last  three  years 
to  Macdonald,  Memorial  and  Flavelle 
Houses  and  a  complete  rebuilding  of 
the  Towers  Library  at  a  cost  of  nearly 
one-half  a  million  dollars. 

Headmaster  Ted  Staunton's  vision  for  St.  Andrew's  includes  a  twenty-year  Campus 
Master  Plan  which  will  address  many  of  the  areas  in  need  of  improvement  on  the 
75-year-old  Aurora  campus. 

When  it  is  all  finished  St.  Andrew's 
College  will  undoubtedly  rank  at  or 
near  the  top  of  all  independent 
schools  as  having  one  of  the  most 
beautiful  and  functional  campuses 
and  facilities  in  North  America. 

"The  goal  is  balance  and  keeping 
pace,"  says  Ted  as  he  ruminates  on 
the  impetus  behind  such  sweeping 
changes.  "This  is  an  age  where 
parents  want  their  boys  educated  in 
an  all-round  Renaissance  fashion. 
Society  demands  a  more  varied  skill 
set  than  ever  before,  no  longer  just 
science  or  athletics  or  arts,  but 
an  equal  mix  of  all.  We  must  be 
much  more  than  two-dimensional. 
Parents  want  their  sons  to  be 
well-rounded,  and  that  is  what  we 
as  an  institution  promise,  encourage 
and  must  deliver." 

"The  school  needs  to  change  and 
evolve  to  keep  pace  with  these  new 
demands,  and  it  became  clear  to  the 
Board,  the  management  team  and  to 
me  in  recent  years  that  some  pretty 
major  physical  alterations  need  to 
be  made  for  this  to  happen." 

Ted  cites  the  building  of  a 
stand-alone  Middle  School — a 
"school  within  a  school" — as  the 
most  obvious  example.  It  responds 
directly  to  the  recent  addition  of 
Grade  6  and  the  phasing  out  of 
Grade  13  due  to  occur  in  2003. 
Located  at  the  north  end  of  the 
campus  roughly  where  the  Tuck 
Shop  now  stands,  the  7-elassroom 
structure  will  respond  to  a  number 
of  important  needs  in  the  Grades  6-8 
age  group.  It  will  cater  to  a 
curriculum  where  students  spend  a 








The  Campus  Master  Plan  will  address  many  of  the  needs  of  these  young  men  as  they 
progress  through  the  St.  Andrew's  of  the  21st  century. 

large  proportion  of  their  day  in  core 
classrooms.  It  will  be  located  near 
a  new  north  entrance  to  the  school, 
allowing  for  easier  drop-off  and 
pick-up  of  day  students.  It  will 
contain  its  own  gymnasium.  Perhaps 
most  importantly,  it  will  give  the 
younger  students  a  chance  to  operate 
primarily  within  their  own  peer  group, 
though  the  demands  and  advantages 
of  a  looming  Upper  School  career  will 
not  be  out  of  sight.  In  addition,  the 
number  of  new  classrooms  offered 
in  the  Middle  School  building  will 
ease  the  strain  on  teaching  space 
throughout  the  school. 

This  theme  of  one  structure 
offering  solutions  or  partial  solutions 
to  a  number  of  different  problems  is 
a  common  one  throughout  the  whole 
Campus  Master  Plan,  and  reflects  a 
long  and  careful  process  of  study, 
thought  and  planning. 

It  began  shortly  after  the  arrival 
of  the  new  Headmaster  in  1997  with 
a  commitment  to  create  a  long-range 
strategic  plan.  This  plan  would 
break  the  traditional  planning 
mould  common  to  this  and  similar 
institutions  of  addressing  problems 
and  new  projects  one  at  a  time — 
initiating,  planning,  fundraising  and 
executing,  before  moving  on  to  the 
next.  It  was  based  on  the  philosophy 
of  creating  small  task  forces  of 
concerned  Andreans,  who  would 
study  problems  with  the  help  of 
outside  consultants  and  then  create 
action  plans  that  would  reach  far 
into  the  future — 20  years  or  more. 

One  of  these  working  groups  was 
the  Facilities  Task  Force,  which 
determined  in  a  1999  report,  that 

the  current  enrollment  of  515 
students  puts  severe  strain  on  a 
number  of  important  educational 
components,  including: 

•  classrooms,  most  of  which  were 
built  in  the  1960s  and  1970s; 

•  Ketchum  Auditorium,  a  well  used 
but  tired  old  workhorse  that  seats 
only  two-thirds  of  the  school; 

•  specialty  disciplines  such  as  art, 
music  and  drama,  all  of  which  are 
housed  in  spaces  that  don't  meet 
their  needs; 

•  the  original  1926  Dunlap 
Gymnasium,  which  barely  fills 
the  needs  of  a  Middle  School 
basketball  court; 

•  science  labs,  which  are  outdated  by 
today's  new  curriculum  standards; 

•  the  day  boy  houses,  which  have 
disappeared  and  resurfaced  as 
computer  labs  and  office 
spaces;  and 

•  meeting  places  for  staff  and  students. 
Once  these  and  other  issues 

were  defined,  the  Board  repeated 
a  process  undertaken  by  its 
predecessor  in  1920:  selecting  an 
architectural  firm.  After  hearing 
presentations  from  several  leading 
architects,  the  Board  selected  the 
Toronto  firm  of  Kuwabara,  Payne, 
McKenna  and  Blumberg  to  submit 
a  Campus  Master  Plan  that  would 
address  all  facility  deficiencies  with 
a  comprehensive  and  cohesive 
long-term  plan.  Completed  in 
January  2000,  the  document  outlined 
a  phased  facility  and  landscape  plan 
that  would  be  implemented  over  the 
next  20  years.  In  addition  to  the 
Middle  School  building  described 
above,  the  plan  includes: 

An  Atrium 

Created  in  what  is  currently  the 
open  courtyard  between  Coulter  Hall 
and  the  Dunlap  Gym,  this  enclosed 
space  will  become  the  heart  and 
focal  point  of  the  campus.  Brightly 
sky-lit  and  spacious,  it  will  provide 
a  gathering  place  for  the  boys  and 
production  space  for  drama  and 
music.  Linked  by  the  principal 
entrance  points — the  boys'  entry  to 
the  south  and  the  new  Middle  School 
entry  to  the  north — the  Atrium 
will  ease  current  bottlenecks  of 
movement  and  allow  for  easy  transit 
throughout  the  College. 

Ketchum  Renovations 

A  major  overhaul  to  this  outdated 
1962  structure  will  create  a 
mezzanine  and  a  vibrant  location 
where  the  entire  school  can  meet. 
The  addition  of  a  crossover,  side 
stage  and  workshop  will  provide  a 
space  that  will  function  superbly  for 
the  wide  range  of  excellent  theatre, 
music  and  debating  programs 
currently  offered  at  the  school. 

Dunlap  Art  Facilities 
"Light-filled  studios" 

The  original  gymnasium  in  Dunlap 
Hall  is  obsolete  for  our  current 
athletics  program  and  the  space 
has  been  identified  in  our  Campus 
Master  Plan  as  having  a  much  more 
effective  use.  This  open  area  lends 
itself  perfectly  to  conversion  into  a 
home  for  the  visual  arts,  now 
dispersed  in  a  number  of  make-do 
locations  throughout  the  school. 
Two  new  art  rooms — senior  and 
junior — will  be  fashioned  as  sky-lit 
studios.  They  will  include 







specialized  spaces  for  print-making, 
sculpture,  ceramics,  computer 
graphics  and  photography,  with 
a  view  to  converting  an  already 
bustling  program  into  one  with  a 
clearly  defined  visual  identity. 

Opening  onto  the  adjacent  new 
Atrium,  where  art  display  space  is 
already  planned,  these  inspiring 
new  studios  will  feature  additional 
exhibition  areas  where  the  works 
of  students  and  others  can  be  shown 
to  best  effect,  thus  showcasing 
talents  that  might  otherwise  might 
go  unnoticed.  This  will  be  the 
flagship  project  in  an  effort  to 
raise  the  standing  of  the  arts  at 
St.  Andrew's  College. 

Strategic  initiatives  for  the  College  include  emphasizing  our  already  strong  traditions. 
The  piping  program  has  become  a  'Centre  of  Excellence'  in  the  past  few  years  under  the 
careful  guidance  of  world-champion  piper  Jim  McGillivray.

in  another  e 

One  has  to  marvel  at  the  courage  of  the  Board  of 
Governors  and  Headmaster  Dr.  Macdonald  when  they 
decided  in  1926  to  move  the  thriving  young  St.  Andrew's 
College  north  to  Aurora.  For  years,  they  had  put  up  with 
cramped  classrooms,  a  tiny  kitchen  and  a  lack  of  playing 
fields  at  Knox  College,  the  school's  temporary  home  during 
the  First  World  War.  But  now,  even  the  move  back  to  their 
beloved  Rosedale  campus  did  not  satisfy  the  school's 
facility  needs. 

As  well,  the  City  of  Toronto  was  just  too  full  of 
distractions  for  the  highly  conservative  Headmaster,  who 
longed  for  a  more  secluded  environment  in  which  to 
educate  young  boys.  Disruptive  radio  sets  kept  the 
dormitories  active  well  after  lights  out;  noisy  motor  cars 
disrupted  classes  and  racy  picture  shows  tempted  boarders 
to  break  curfew.  It  was  clear:  for  education  to  continue 
at  a  high  level,  a  new  campus  had  to  be  acquired. 

A  135-acre  site  in  distant  York  Mills  appealed  to  the 
Board,  but  Dr.  Macdonald's  contended  correctly  that 
St.  Andrew's  College  was  first  and  foremost  a  boarding 
school,  and  that  a  campus  in  a  more  rural  setting  was 
essential  to  success.  The  persuasive  Headmaster  swayed 
the  Board,  already  made  uneasy  by  the  exorbitant  estimate 
of  $887,000  for  new  buildings  in  York  Mills. 

As  an  alternative,  two  extensive  farms  with  a  combined 
total  of  219  acres  had  been  found  located  in  the  sleepy 
township  of  Aurora,  and  it  was  this  site  that  provided  the 
kind  of  seclusion  Dr.  Macdonald  sought  for  his  boarding 
school.  Unfortunately,  it  had  considerable  frontage  on  the 
main  thoroughfare  of  Yonge  St.  which  had  the  worrisome 
potential  of  luring  traffic  from  Toronto.  Nonetheless, 
abundant  level  fields  for  the  playing  of  sports  and  an  ideal 
rise  of  land,  set  back  from  the  highway  and  perfect  for 


large  school  buildings,  made  the  decision  an  easy  one 
for  the  eager  Board  of  Governors.  The  purchase  price  of 
$23,000  also  made  economic  sense. 

An  architectural  competition  for  the  design  of  the  new 
St.  Andrew's  College  was  hastily  organized  and  after 
significant  controversy,  the  firm  of  Marani  &  Paisley  won 
the  contract.  Their  winning  plan  of  Georgian-styled 
buildings  that  surrounded  a  magnificent  quadrangle  was 
by  far  the  most  charming  and  dignified.  "Dr.  Mac's"  house, 
situated  at  the  southern  end  of  the  quad,  commanded  a 
view  of  the  entire  group  of  buildings  as  well  as  the 
entrance  to  the  grounds — obviously  designed  to  eliminate 
any  ill-considered  escapades  on  the  part  of  the  boarders! 

The  new  St.  Andrew's  was  officially  opened  by  the 
Governor-General,  Lord  Willingdon,  on  November  18,  1926. 
The  buildings,  as  described  by  the  editor  of  the  1924 
Bulletin,  a  publication  of  the  S.A.C.  Old  Boys'  Association, 
were  "perfectly  designed  for  their  purpose  with  nothing 
wanting,  nothing  superfluous,  induced  a  sense  of  timeless 
calm".  The  writer  continued: 

"Old  Boys  will  foregather  at  the  new  school  in  droves 
for  week-ends  to  revel  in  the  accommodation  and  relax 
and  inhale  the  100%  efficient  ozone  of  the  country  after 
the  week's  strenuous  work.  Not  only  will  those  who  are 
Old  Boys  at  present  find  rest,  inspiration  and  a  feeling  of 
pride  in  the  new  home  of  their  Alma  Mater,  but  also  those 
who  will  be  fortunate  enough  to  attend  this  national 
institution  in  the  generations  to  come." 

Indeed,  we  who  are  "fortunate  enough"  to  be  part  of 
this  "national  institution"  almost  exactly  75  years  later  are 
grateful  for  the  industrious  foresight  of  our  predecessors.

McLaughlin  Hall  upgrade 

The  science  wing  is  now  nearly 
25  years  old  and  requires  upgrading 
to  meet  the  needs  of  the  modern 
curriculum  that  includes  new 
'hands-on'  teaching  methods  and 





'Andy'  remains  a  symbol  of  strength 
and  tradition  at  the  entry  to  the 
campus.  The  statue  was  moved  from 
the  original  School  buildings  in  1926. 

robotics.  This  will  require  some 
classroom  renovation  and  a 
substantial  reconfiguration  of 
the  laboratories. 

These  are  the  major  projects,  but 
innumerably  smaller — though  far 
from  small — improvements  will  be 
undertaken  campus-wide.  These 
will  include  a  reorientation  of  roads, 
improved  parking,  pedestrian-only 
walkways,  recreation  areas  behind 
the  Upper  School  residences,  new 
tennis  courts,  a  new  track,  landscape 
upgrades,  Great  Hall  renovations  and 
the  addition  of  an  arena. 

Timing  issues  are  still  to  be 
determined,  but  completion  of  the 
new  Middle  School  in  the  fall  of  2003 
when  Grade  13  is  officially  phased 
out  seems  to  be  a  suitable  target, 
with  at  least  the  Ketchum  renovation 
running  concurrently. 
"It  makes  sense,"  says  Ted,  "that 
we  minimize  disruptions  by 
accomplishing  as  much  as  possible 
at  one  time." 

"It  also  seems  appropriate  to  do  all 
we  can  on  the  crest  of  the  huge  wave 
of  support  that  is  building  among 
Board  members,  parents,  alumni, 
friends  and  the  staff  of  the  School. 
When  you  think  of  how  often  we  tell 
our  students  to  take  anything  they 
do  and  do  it  well,  we'd  best  approach 
this  undertaking  as  if  it  were  an 
example  we're  setting  for  them, 
which  in  many  ways  it  is." 

Ted  points  out  that  support  among 
the  Board  of  Governors  and  staff  was 
immediate  as  soon  as  deficiencies 
had  been  pointed  out.  "These  plans 
were  music  to  many  ears,"  he  recalls. 
"Out  of  the  various  working  groups, 
clear  patterns  began  to  emerge  as 
to  where  improvements  needed  to 
be  made  in  the  institution  as  a  whole 
if  we  were  to  provide  the  balanced 
education  demanded  in  the 
twenty-first  century.  More  and  more 
these  patterns  pointed  to  problems 
with  facilities." 

"We  have  some  tremendous 
educators  here  on  tremendous  teams 
working  through  state-of-the-art 
curricula  with  tremendous 
enthusiasm.  It's  absolutely  crucial 

lookinai  f 

It  has  not  gone  unnoticed  during 
this  time  of  proposed  expansion  that 
two  related  events  took  place  on 
significant  anniversaries  in  the  life  of 
St.  Andrew's  College: 

100  Years  Ago— 1900-1901 

The  College  survived  its  first  year  of 
existence,  but  there  was  a  new  man 
at  the  helm.  Upon  the  retirement  of 
founding  Headmaster  Dr.  George 
Bruce,  Dr.  D.  Bruce  Macdonald  was 
appointed  Headmaster.  It  was  a  post  he 
would  hold  for  35  years,  and  he  would 
follow  it  with  service  to  the  Board  of 
Governors  from  1936  to  1947,  the  last  9 
as  chairman.  Thus,  he  would  reign  over 
nearly  a  half-century  of  unprecedented 
growth  and  prosperity  at  the 
school — including  the  inspired  move 
to  Aurora — and  would  be  remembered 
today  as  the  undisputed  forefather 
of  the  modern  St.  Andrew's  College. 

75  Years  Ago— 1925-26 

From  the  Mid-Summer  Review 

"This  was  a  year  of  conflicting 
emotions.  It  was  the  final  year  in 
Rosedale.  For  20  years  the  building  has 
been  the  cradle  of  a  host  of  memories 
and  traditions  for  an  ever-widening 
circle  of  boys.  Every  room,  every  corner 
of  the  grounds  is  a  treasure-house  of 
now  on 
youngest  amongst 
us  must  have  felt  the  importance  and 
dignity  of  the  occasion  when  the 
cornerstone  was  laid.  What  was  once 
only  a  far  away  dream  and  a  standing 
joke  among  the  boys  has  at  last 
become  a  reality,  and,  far  from  being 
a  joke,  is  one  of  the  proudest  things 
in  our  lives.  The  school  in  Aurora  in 
nearing  completion.  In  honour  of  the 
laying  of  the  cornerstone,  we  received 
a  half-holiday  from  the  arduous  task 
of  studying,  and  early  in  the  afternoon 
startled  the  inhabitants  of  Aurora  with 
the  stirring  music  of  our  bagpipes  as 
we  marched  through  town. "

Seventy-five  years  after  the  publication  of

into  high  gear  with  detailed 
planning.  Similar  to  a  time  in  1924 
when  the  Board  of  Governors 
reached  agreement  with  Architects 
Marani  and  Paisley  on  their  plan  for 
new  school  buildings  in  Aurora, 
excitement  is  building  within  the 
current  Andrean  community  for  the 
proposed  new  facilities.  "The 
beautiful  campus  designed  with  a 
clear  vision  in  the  1920s  provides 
compelling  inspiration  and  a 
continuing  strategy  for  planning  and 
building,"  says  Ted.  "The  opportunity 
to  enhance  our  memorable  grounds 
has  arrived  at  a  perfect  time  of 
extraordinary  change  in  education 
in  Ontario.  It's  a  perfect  time  of 
strength  in  all  facets  of  the  school's 
program  and  faculty.  And  we're  in  an 
era  when  the  loyalty  and  strength  of 
the  world-wide  Andrean  community 
have  never  been  stronger."

faculty  in  September. 

Carrie  Hughes-McGuiness 

Carrie  knows  St.  Andrew's  well, 
having  taught  at  Trafalgar  Castle  in 
Whitby  for  five  years.  She  was  Head 
of  Drama  and  was  instrumental  in 
that  school's  musical  productions, 
drama  society,  murder  mystery 
dinner,  one-act  play  night  and  entry 
to  the  Canadian  Independent 
School's  Drama  Festival.  She  also 
coached  soccer  and  gymnastics. 

Carrie  graduated  from  the 
University  of  Western  Ontario  with 
a  B.A.  in  English  and  Drama,  then 
received  her  B.Ed,  from  Queen's 
University  in  Kingston.  She  followed 
that  up  with  an  English  Specialist 
certificate  from  O.I.S.E.  in  1997. 

She  joins  the  Middle  School  as  a 
Language  Arts  and  English  teacher 
and  lives  on  campus  with  her 
husband,  Jeff. 

Robyn  O'Hare 

St.  Andrew's  College  may  well  have  prevented  Robyn  from  becoming  a  'lifer' 
at  Bishop  Strachan  School,  where  she  spent  12  years  as  a  student,  graduating 
as  a  prefect,  and  an  additional  year  as  a  tutor  and  a  teaching  assistant. 

After  B.S.S.,  she  earned  an  Honours  B.Sc.  at  Queen's  University  with  a  major 
in  biology,  writing  her  thesis  on  two  months  of  demanding  field  study  in  avian 
behaviour.  She  recently  graduated  with  her  B.Ed,  from  the  University  of 
Toronto,  where  she  was  awarded  the  Louden  Memorial  Entrance  Scholarship 
in  Science.  Her  biology  degree  was  useful  during  time  she  spent  working  as  a 
researcher  for  the  World  Wildlife  Fund  Canada,  and  much  of  her  work  there 
concerned  endangered  or  injured  migratory  birds.  Her  passion  for  tennis 
served  her  well  during  five  years  as  a  tennis  coach  at  Upper  Canada  College's 
Summer  Camp.  Bird  watching  and  wildlife  rehabilitation  still  consume  much 
of  her  interest. 

Robyn  joins  the  Middle  School  faculty  as  a  mathematics  and  science  teacher 
and  lives  on  campus  with  her  husband  Ron,  who  works  at  the  school  as  an 
Physical  Therapist. 

Greg  Reid 

Greg  comes  to  S.A.C.  as  Athletic  Director,  replacing  Paul  Bedard,  who  has 
returned  to  the  classroom.  Greg  spent  the  last  three  years  as  Department 
Head,  Health  and  Physical  Education,  at  nearby  King  City  Secondary  School, 
where  he  was  also  staff  advisor  to  the  Student  Athletic  Council. 

He  graduated  from  Queen's  University  with  a  B.A.  in  Geography  and  a 
Bachelor  of  Physical  and  Health  Education  and  a  B.Ed  in  Physical  and  Health 
Education  and  History.  He  subsequently  earned  his  Honours  Specialist 
certification  in  the  P.H.E.  from  the  University  of  Toronto  in  1995. 

The  Cadet  program  will  benefit  from  Greg's  arrival.  He  is  a  retired  Squadron 
Sergeant  Major  with  the  Canadian  Forces  Primary  Reserve,  and  has  spent  the 
last  five  summers  as  a  Program  Director  at  Camp  Robin  Hood,  a  large  day 
camp  in  Markham. 

He  was  Head  Coach  of  York  University's  Men's  Varsity  Lacrosse  Team  from 
1992  to  1999,  and  can  also  coach  hockey,  volleyball,  basketball  and  football. 

He  and  wife  Chryssi  and  sons  Bowen  and  Brayden  live  in  Newmarket. 




Michael  Ruscitti

Flavelle  Rejuvenation 
Bringi  Together 



l\lot  since  the  day  it  opened  has  Flavelle 
House  looked  as  good  as  it  did  during  a 
re-dedication  ceremony  last  September  20. 
The  event  celebrated  the  completion 
last  summer  of  the  most  recent  in  a 
series  of  renovation  projects  designed 
to  upgrade  the  boarding  houses. 






■.  ^|V 




On  the  inside  of  the  House,  every  room  was  completely 
renovated  to  suit  needs  of  young  men  in  the  twenty-first 
century.  Outside,  new  roof,  copper  evestroughs  and  all  new 
windows  are  features  of  the  $650,000  rebuilding  of  the 
residence  first  opened  in  1926. 



Originally  opened  in  1926  during 
the  College's  move  to  Aurora,  the 
building  was  named  to  honour  one 
of  the  school's  greatest  benefactors, 
Canadian  magnate  Sir  Joseph 
Flavelle,  Bart.  Time  had  come  to 
modernize,  and  the  renovation 
did  just  that,  retaining  the 
magnificence  of  the  architecture 
while  substantially  upgrading  the 
boys'  living  quarters. 

Every  room  had  recessed  lighting 
installed  into  a  lowered  ceiling. 
The  rooms  also  received  new  wiring 
and  windows,  and  custom-designed 

furniture.  These  efforts,  along  with 
new  cork  board  walls  and  new 
carpets,  have  rejuvenated  the  rooms 
and  added  a  much  needed  level  of 
warmth  and  comfort. 

On  the  main  floor,  oak  panelling 
defines  the  entrance  to  a  new  lounge 
where  the  boys  can  enjoy  their 
recreational  time.  A  beautiful 
photograph  of  Sir  Joseph  holds 
court  in  the  lobby,  with  the  school's 
permanent  art  collection  now 
spreading  throughout  the  House. 
Construction  was  topped  off  with 
a  new  slate  roof. 

The  re-dedication  event  brought 
together  many  of  the  special  donors 
who  in  total  contributed  $500,000  to 
fund  the  renovation.  In  addition  five 
former  Flavelle  Housemasters — 
Courtney  Stoate,  Stan  Macfarlane, 
Derek  Inglis,  David  Timms  and  Aubrey 
Foy — joined  current  Housemaster 
Courtenay  Shrimpton  for  a  memorable 
photo.  All  were  treated  to  a  tour,  with 
major  contributors  being  shown  their 
"own"  rooms,  which  are  adorned 
with  plaques  giving  their  names  as  a 
permanent  reminder  of  the  importance 
of  philanthropy  to  the  ongoing  success 
of  St.  Andrew's  College. 

Flavelle  Housemasters  gathered  to  celebrate  the  re-dedication  of  the  House  with 
special  guests  who  made  the  major  renovation  project  possible,  (l-r)  Aubrey  Foy, 
1983-99;  Derek  Inglis,  1970-73;  Stan  Macfarlane,  1950-61;  Courtney  Stoate,  1963-70; 
David  Timms,  1973-83,  and  Courtenay  Shrimpton  who  took  over  the  Housemaster's 
role  in  1999. 

Courage  &  Conviction 




When  you  get  into  your  upper 
seventies,  you  can  be  forgiven  for 
slowing  down  and  taking  it  easy. 
Mac  Frost  of  the  Spring  Lakes  Golf 
Club,  north  of  Toronto,  isn't  able 
to  relate  to  that.  At  78,  he  is  poised 
to  open  yet  another  golf  facility 
and  shows  no  signs  of  retiring. 

More  than  half  a  century  after 
getting  into  the  golf  business, 
"getting  it  right"  is  still  an  everyday 
passion  for  Mac.  He  has  seen  the 
game  grow  from  a  leisure  activity 
enjoyed  by  a  handful  of  affluent 
private  club  members  to  an 
economic  engine  responsible  for 
dozens  of  golf  courses  and  real 
estate  developments  in  the  greater 
Toronto  area,  serving  hundreds  of 
thousands  of  players. 

Today  Mac  Frost  has  the  unusual 
niche  of  being  the  private  owner  of  a 
members-only  golf  club.  He  has  seen 
a  lot  and  done  much  over  the  years, 
and  in  the  accompanying  interview, 
he  explains  his  philosophy  and 
view  of  the  golf  industry.  First  and 
foremost,  Mac  Frost  has  had  a  talent 
for  being  in  the  right  place  at  the 
right  time,  ready  for  his  next 
"lucky"  break. 

"My  father  always  said  it's  better 
to  be  lucky  than  good,"  Mac  says. 
"Fortunately,  we  started  at  the 
growth  of  golf  and  real  estate.  At 
every  step  along  the  way  we  were 
able  to  build  and  operate  without 
ever  going  into  debt.  Operating 
costs  are  easier  to  manage  without 
servicing  a  debt." 

It  sounds  very  much  like  a  case  of 
making  your  own  lucky  breaks.  Mac 
Frost,  however  doesn't  give  you  the 
impression  that  he  was  a  visionary 
who  predicted  a  massive  explosion 
in  the  game  of  golf  over  the  last  55 
years.  He  will  admit  that  there  was 
no  "master  plan"  to  select  just  the 
right  piece  of  property  that  would 
attract  hordes  of  corporate  dollars  as 
well  as  the  high-end  casual  player. 

G.  Mac  Frost  '40  at  the  re-dedication 
of  Flavelle  House  in  September  2000 

No,  there  was  just  Mac,  christened 
George  by  his  parents  who  also  gave 
him  principles,  his  values,  common 
sense  and  a  humble  ambition:  "I 
wanted  to  be  successful  in  the  golf 
business,  but  1  did  not  want  to  be  the 
richest  man  in  the  graveyard,"  is  how 
he  puts  it. 

What  he  did  become  was  a 
successful  operator  of  all  types  of 
golf  courses,  an  administrator  in 

numerous  golf  associations,  and  an 
authority  on  turf  management.  His 
wife  Beth,  a  recognized  international 
flower  show  judge,  helped  organize 
the  World  Flower  Show  exhibition 
when  it  was  held  in  Toronto. 

The  Frost  Business  Model 

The  Great  Depression  molded  the 
lives  and  values  of  everyone  who 
endured  it.  When  you  start  with 
nothing,  everything  you  work  for  and 
achieve  has  special  value.  All  the  old 
adages,  consistently  applied,  pay 
dividends.  This  is  not  a  get-rich-quick 
business.  Mac  nurtured  his  original 
investment  the  old-fashioned  way,  by 
developing  value  at  each  step  along 
the  track. 

When  the  time  was  right  and  the 
opportunity  was  there,  he  cashed  in 
and  moved  to  the  next  level.  At  each 







new  venture,  the  overriding  concern 
was  to  ensure  the  business  would 
support  the  investment.  That's  not 
to  say  that  Mac  didn't  incur  debt 
along  the  way.  But  judicious 
planning  meant  that  each  facility 
was  built  to  suit  the  market  he  was 
after.  Easy  to  say,  but  with  today's 
increased  expectations,  the 
temptation  to  build  bigger  and 
better  is  more  difficult  to  resist. 

In  Mac's  mind,  value  is  the  key  to 
a  happy  golfer  and  a  satisfied  owner. 

"It  makes  no  sense  to  have  a 
happy  player  who  crows  about  his 
low  cost  per  round  while  the  owner 
resents  the  impact  on  the  other 
members  who  are  in  effect 
subsidizing  his  play,"  Mac  says.  Thus 
the  concept  of  "user  pay." 

But  you  say:  "every  public  golf 
course  is  user  pay."  Which  they  are. 
However,  public  access  means 
relinquishing  control  in  so  many 
ways.  Casual  players,  new  players 
and  tournament  players  are  miles 
apart  from  the  avid  player  who 
generally  feels  that  golf  is  a  rhythm 
best  accomplished  in  a  four  hour 
period.  The  avid  player  needs  easier 
access  to  tee  times  when  his  time 
permits.  Membership  carries 
responsibilities  and  is  rewarded 
with  pride  and  satisfaction. 

"You  can  talk  to  a  member,  but 
the  public  doesn't  listen,"  says  Mac. 
"How  often  do  we  see  situations 
where  the  green  fee  player  feels  that 
his  paid  ticket  is  his  right  to 

ownership  for  a  day  or  the  private 
club  member  who  feels  he  runs 
the  club?" 

The  Early  Years 

A  grocer's  son,  raised  in  the 
depression  years  of  the  1930's,  Mac 
graduated  from  St.  Andrew's  College 
in  Aurora,  Ontario  as  war  was 
breaking  out  and  went  on  to  McGill 
University  in  Montreal.  After  two 
years,  however,  Mac  felt  the  call  of 
duty  for  King  and  Country.  He  joined 
his  friends  and  enlisted  in  the  R.CA.F. 
and  served  three  hazardous  years 
overseas  in  Coastal  Command  as 
pilot  of  a  Sunderland  flying  boat. 

In  1946,  freshly  out  of  the  air 
force,  Mac  was  ready  for  a  new 
career.  He  found  it  at  Cedarbrae  Golf 
Club.  Established  as  a  private  club 
in  1922,  it  had  fallen  upon  hard 
times  during  the  war  years.  It  was 
a  Scarborough  area  club  "out  in 
the  country,"  at  a  time  when 
transportation  was  limited  by 
gas  rationing. 

Mac  was  determined  to  make  good 
use  of  his  accumulated  gratuity  pay 

from  the  service.  His  father  had 
retired  from  the  grocery  business 
and  the  two  along  with  his  cousin, 
Art  Bamford,  rescued  the  Stanley 
Thompson  designed  course  from 
bankruptcy,  complete  with  clubhouse 
for  $25,000. 

"It  was  a  lucky  break,  I  had  no 
idea  that  the  post-war  boom  was 
ready  to  start,"  Mac  remembers. 

After  eight  years  running  the 
facility,  the  new  post-war  economy 
had  fuelled  an  exciting  building 
boom  and  lifestyles  began  to  change. 
The  Toronto  suburbs  had  started  to 
mushroom  and  Don  Mills  was 
created  to  provide  housing  and 
factory  sites.  Plazas  had  sprung  up 
to  service  the  residents  and  in  1954, 
Cedarbrae  was  sold  for  $700,000  to 
become  a  shopping  plaza  of  the  same 
name  in  the  heart  of  Scarborough. 
Talk  about  being  in  the  right  place 
at  the  right  time. 

Looking  for  new  acres  to  conquer, 
Mac  moved  farther  out  to  the 
Markham  area  and  built  the  new 
Cedarbrae  without  going  into  debt. 
With  the  amenities  and  new  layout, 




Cedarbrae  was  host  to  the  Miller 
Bursary  tournament  which  was  the 
largest  and  most  lucrative  area 
event  for  aspiring  professionals 
including  a  young  George  Knudson 
who  became  one  of  Canada's  most 
successful  pros. 

By  I960,  the  threesome  of  Mac, 
his  father  and  Art  Bamford,  had 
formed  Golf  Leaseholds  Ltd.  and  had 
built  Parkview  Golf  Club  across  the 
road,  now  a  36-hole  facility. 

"Boy  they've  dumped  more 
responsibilities  into  my  lap,"  Mac 
says  he  remembers  thinking  at  the 
time.  Parkview  developed  a  solid 
reputation  over  the  years  as  an 
"everyman's"  golf  course.  Reasonable 
green  fees  on  a  good,  well-kept 
layout  with  satisfying  food  service, 
kept  the  course  busy  as  more  and 
more  people  took  up  golf.  The  baby- 
boomers  were  maturing,  out  to  work 
or  finishing  their  schooling  and  their 
mobile  lifestyle  was  leading  them  to 
golf.  By  1968,  Arnold  Palmer  was  at 
the  peak  of  his  career.  His  colorful 
personality  and  the  competition 
with  his  talented  younger  rival  Jack 
Nicklaus  were  a  TV  attraction  which 
attracted  thousands  of  new  players 
to  the  game.  And  in  1969,  the  Frosts 

opened  Brookwood  now  called 
Brookside,  a  27-hole  course  down  the 
street,  selling  Cedarbrae  to 
its  members. 

Throughout  this  busy  period,  Mac 
began  his  involvement  in  Association 
work.  In  1958  he  joined  the  Canadian 
Club  Managers  Association  serving 
as  Ontario  President  in  1966.  He  has 
been  a  member  of  the  Canadian  and 
Ontario  Golf  Course  Superintendents 
Associations  since  1967.  This  was 
the  conduit  for  a  life-long  interest 
in  turfgrass  management  and 
the  emerging  importance  of  the 
ecological  approach  to  research 
and  practices  for  the  industry. 
He  has  also  served  on  the  boards 
of  provincial  and  national  golf 

New  Directions 

After  14  years  operating  private 
clubs  and  14  years  of  operating 
public  access  golf  clubs,  Mac  could 
see  a  divergence  in  the  way  golf  was 
heading.  Private  clubs  were  still  the 
domain  of  the  well-off  player  or 
status  seeker  with  entrance  fees 
of  $10,000  or  more  to  join.  Public 
courses  were  now  very  crowded. 
The  more  avid  golfer  was  having  a 

difficult  time  competing  for  space 
and  time  as  a  member  of  a  semi- 
private  facility.  Prices  were  starting 
to  edge  up  as  the  demand  for  better 
facilities  required  more 
maintenance.  The  greater  Toronto 
area  had  been  continuing  its 
relentless  growth  and  local  real 
estate  costs  reflected  this  demand. 

In  1974  Mac  purchased  300 
acres  of  land  in  StoufMle,  about 
a  half-hour  from  the  growing  market. 
"We  opened  Spring  Lakes  18  holes 
in  1977  with  a  1,500-square  foot  pro 
shop/snack  bar  built  from  old  trailers 
and  a  different  concept."  It  was  here 
that  Mac  would  apply  30  years  of 
experience  and  implement  strategies 
based  on  his  principles,  philosophy 
and  business  acumen. 

Spring  Lakes  is  that  rare  example 
of  a  privately-owned  golf  club  for 
members  only.  There  are  no 
committees  of  members.  The  rules 
set  at  Spring  Lakes  are  simple  in 
nature  to  benefit  the  expectations 
of  all  the  members  and  to  ensure 
the  continuing  operating  success  of 
the  Club.  The  club  is  open  for  play 
on  May  1  and  closes  on  October  31. 
There  are  no  outside  corporate 
tournaments.  If  you  agree  with  this 

















concept  and  other  operating  rules, 
you  are  invited  to  join.  If  you  don't 
abide  by  the  rules,  your  membership 
is  not  renewed.  The  club  grew  to  36 
holes  within  three  years  and  to  54 
holes  by  1983.  Currently,  there  is  a 
long  waiting  list  (enough  to  fill  two 
clubs)  to  join.  At  the  current  rate  of 
turnover,  some  may  never  get  in. 

Spring  Lakes  is  a  "Championship 
Layout"  designed  by  Rene  Mulyaert 
and  has  always  provided  a  stiff 
challenge  for  the  many  provincial 
and  national  tournaments  it  has 
hosted  over  the  years.  A  true  players' 
club,  the  blending  and  maturing  of 
the  three  layouts  have  stood  the 
test  of  time. 

Getting  The  Job  Done 

The  pro  shop,  without 
tournaments  or  reserved  tee  times, 
can  easily  be  handled  by  a  single 
staff  member.  The  Head  Pro 
organizes  and  runs  all  club  events 
and  provides  teaching  on  the 
extensive  range.  Employees  share  in 
the  profits.  Mac  sets  aside  a  pool  of 
five  per  cent  of  the  club's  profits  and 
this  bonus  is  paid  to  all  employees 
with  at  least  one  year's  service, 
based  on  their  wages.  The  more 
important  a  position  is,  the  more 
opportunity  they  have  to  affect 
the  outcome. 

There  is  enough  land  on  the  site 
to  build  two  more  courses  when  the 
need  arises.  Offers  to  purchase  from 
those  without  a  background  in  golf 
course  management  are  not 
entertained.  Any  feeling  Mac  gets 
that  prospective  owners  would 
not  preserve  the  principles  which 
protect  the  members,  terminates 

Mac  gives  substantial  credit  for 
his  success  to  his  wife  Beth,  who  has 
worked  hard  in  the  business  and 
shared  management  responsibilities 
from  the  beginning. 

On  May  7,  1957  the  club  was  one 
person  short.  Mac  asked  her  if  she 
was  up  to  going  in  to  help.  She 
hasn't  missed  a  day  at  the  course 
since,  and  we're  talking  "12/7" — 
12  hours  a  day,  seven  days  a  week. 

While  answering  every  telephone  call 
and  looking  after  the  office  routine, 
Beth  reconciles  each  day's  chits 
and  transmits  member  charges, 
(including  green  fees  to  the  credit 
card  centre).  Paid  in  full  every  day. 
No  accounts  receivable.  No  bad  debts. 

Affectionately  known  throughout 
the  golf  world  as  the  "Tiger  Lady", 
Beth  has  been  the  keeper  of  the 
game.  Her  conscientious 
enforcement  of  club  policy  to  the 
benefit  of  all,  has  been  a  major 
factor  in  member  satisfaction. 
Outside  golf,  Beth  is  a  world-renowned 
flower  expert  and  attends  shows  all 
over  the  world.  In  1993  the  Frosts 
sponsored  the  World  Flower  Show 
when  it  was  held  in  Toronto.  The 
Frosts  have  been  major  supporters 
and  have  been  actively  involved  with 
fundraising  for  diabetes  research 
for  years. 

Mac  has  put  back  much  into  the 
industry  by  his  involvement  in  all 
its  facets.  In  addition  to  the  Club 
Manager  and  Superintendents 
associations,  Mac  has  also  served 
as  president  of  the  Ontario  Golf 
Association  and  been  a  governor 
of  the  Royal  Canadian  Golf 
Association,  serving  as  chairman 
of  the  greens  section. 

In  1990  Mac  and  Beth  lead  the 
contributions  for  the  building  of  the 
Guelph  Turfgrass  Research  and 
Information  Centre  with  a  founding 
donation  of  $500,000. 

"Mac  realized  the  need  for 
turfgrass  research  in  Canada,"  Gord 
Witteveen,  retired  Superintendent, 
at  the  Board  of  Trade  Golf  Club  says. 
"Without  the  credibility  generated 
by  the  Frost  donation,  it  may  never 
have  gotten  off  the  ground.  I've 
known  Mac  for  40  years  and  he  has 
always  been  a  first  class  supporter 
of  the  industry." 

Today,  the  G.M.  Frost  Research 
and  Information  Centre  in  Guelph, 
has  become  an  important  and 
respected  institute  reaching  all 
corners  of  the  globe. 

In  1994  Mac  turned  his  efforts  to 
the  founding  and  operations  of  the 
Central  Ontario  Chapter  of  NGCOA 

(Canada).  As  the  first  President  of 
the  chapter,  and  a  National  Board 
member,  Mac  was  instrumental  in 
building  the  framework  for  the  most 
influential  association  in  Canadian 
golf.  His  belief  is  even  stronger  today, 
knowing  the  issues  the  industry 
faces.  For  example,  in  the  last  year, 
he  resurrected  the  property  tax 
assessment  issue  when  it  was 
not  progressing  through  another 

After  a  lifetime  in  the  golf 
business  Mac  and  Beth  can  both 
be  found  at  Spring  Lakes  on  a  daily 
basis.  This  successful  facility  is 
a  testament  for  Mac  Frost,  who 
demonstrates  the  courage  to 
implement  his  principles  of 
life  and  the  conviction  to  carry 
them  through.

A  member  of  the  very  active  class 
of  1940,  George  (Mac)  Frost  attended 
St.  Andrew's  College  as  a  last  wish  of 
his  mother  who  passed  away  of 
cancer  in  1934.  He  has  maintained 
ties  to  the  school  for  more  than  60 
years.  This  includes  following  very 
closely  the  success  and  activities  of 
his  grandson,  Jason  Hammond,  who 
graduated  in  1999.  Mac  and  his  wife 
Beth  will  be  married  50  years  in 
June.  They  had  two  children, 
Cynthia,  now  45,  and  Robert,  lost  in 
a  snowmobile  mishap  in  1975.  Over 
the  years,  Mac  and  Beth  have  built 
quite  a  name  for  themselves  in 
golfing  circles  as  the  owners  of  an 
upscale  private  golf  club  just  north 
of  Toronto.  Golf  Business  Canada, 
the  publication  oftlie  Golf  Course 
Owners  Association  of  Ontario, 
recently  published  this  profile  of 
Mac  and  a  look  at  his  very  sttecessful 
business  principles. 



Philip  Henderson  '78  takes  the 
reins  at  Stikeman  Elliott,  Canada's 
largest  law  fjirm  in  London. 






■  he  book-lined  walls  are 
modern  but  the  furniture  is  antique. 
The  expansive  corner  windows  look 
out  over  the  city  and  the  River 
Thames  making  the  offices  of 
Stikeman  Elliott — arguably  Canada's 
most  prestigious  law  firm — an 
intriguing  mix  of  contemporary 
and  conservative. 

Behind  a  massive  oak  table,  Philip 
Henderson  leans  back  in  his  chair, 
relaxed  but  alert,  a  man  equally  at 
home  with  the  minor  detail  and  the 
big  picture. 

Here  in  the  firm's  London  office, 
Henderson  is  the  'boss'  though  not 
altogether  comfortable  with  the  term. 
"Actually,  I'm  the  managing  partner," 
he  smiles,  a  little  shyly. 

This  means  keeping  a  vigilant  eye 
on  all  client  files,  handling  the  firm's 
marketing  and  shouldering 
responsibility  for  the  management 
of  the  entire  office.  Oh,  and  he  still 
practices  law  full  time  too. 

"I  practice  absolutely,"  he  says. 
"Mainly  in  mergers  and  acquisitions, 
securities  law  and  corporate  finance 
and,  of  course,  derivatives,"  for  which 
the  corporate  lawyer  is  well  known 
and  extensively  published.  His 
credentials  are  also  such  that,  until 
1996,  he  commuted  from  Toronto  to 
teach  Advanced  Company  Law  at  the 
University  of  Western  Ontario. 

At  just  40,  the  Toronto-born  lawyer 
has  recently  taken  over  from  the 
charming  Kip  Cobbett  who  returned 
to  the  firm's  Montreal  office  last  fall. 
And  he's  only  in  mid-career. 

So  how  does  a  young  Canadian 
lawyer  get  himself  admitted  to  the 
Ontario  Bar  and  then  admitted  as 
a  solicitor  to  the  Supreme  Court  of 
England  and  Wales  in  just  ten  years? 












"It  was  quite  easy,  actually.  But 
you  could  say  I  did  it  for  sentimental 
reasons,"  he  smiles. 

In  1995,  just  a  decade  after  his 
admission  to  the  bar,  Henderson 
decided  to  write  transfer 
examinations  in  Toronto  before  the 
chance  of  moving  to  London  was 
even  suggested.  "I  saw  an  ad  in  the 
newspaper  (for  applying),  thought 
'that  would  be  neat'  and  did  it. . . 
which  was  fortuitous,  as  it  turns  out." 

Later  that  year,  Henderson  and 
his  wife  Kim  Alletson,  then  also 
a  partner  at  Stikeman's  Toronto 
office  specializing  in  banking  and 
restructuring,  were  transferred 
to  London. 

While  Kim  remains  on  indefinite 
leave  to  look  after  their  children  at 
their  country  home  near  Sevenoaks 
and  completes  her  master's  degree 
in  law  at  the  London  School 
of  Economics,  Phil  puts  in  a 
60-hour  week.  Exhausting?  At  times 
perhaps,  but  the  Hendersons  must 
be  used  to  it  by  now  since  their 
latest  move  to  London  seems  just 
one  more  stop  in  lives  marked  by 
continuous  achievement. 

Kim,  a  former  Olympic  figure 
skater  who  competed  for  Canada 
in  the  1976  Olympic  games  at 
Innsbruck,  was  a  gold  medal  winner 
at  Skate  Canada  during  the  1970s. 
Forced  to  give  up  her  competitive 
career  when  she  blew  out  a  knee  in 
the  Canadian  championships  in 
Victoria  in  1978,  Alettson  then 
decided  to  study  law  at  Dalhousie 
University.  Admitted  to  the  Ontario 
Bar  in  1986  after  doing  her  articles 
at  Gowlings  in  Ottawa,  she  joined 
Stikeman  in  Toronto  in  1986  where 
she  met  Henderson. 

"You  could  say  it  was  an  office 
romance,"  he  grins. 

Three  years  later,  the  couple 
married  and  now  have  three  sons, 
aged  8,  6  and  4. 

Ten  years  on,  the  Hendersons  are 
living  in  Kent  and  loving  it,  though 
Phil  is  no  stranger  to  this  country. 
As  the  son  of  British  parents  who 
finally  settled  in  Canada  in  1962 
following  a  couple  of  brief  stays  in 

the  late  1950s  (during  which  he  was 
born),  Henderson  has  been  well 
acquainted  with  life  in  the  UK  from 
the  beginning. 

As  for  why  he  chose  law,  he  doesn't 
really  know,  he  says.  He  just  did. 

So  did  his  elder  brother  Martin 
who  is  currently  a  litigation  lawyer 
practicing  with  Aird  &  Berlis 
in  Toronto. 

Unlike  his  brother,  however,  Phil 
was  never  attracted  to  litigation, 
he  says.  "I  always  felt  I'd  end  up  in 
business  law." 

Enter  Stikeman  Elliott,  the 
limousine  of  Canadian  law  firms 
and  a  career  was  born. 

Founded  in  Montreal  in  1952  by 
Heward  Stikeman  and  Fraser  Elliott, 
the  practice  has  grown  into  Canada's 
best  known  and  largest  national  and 
international  law  firm. 

With  more  than  350  lawyers  in 
its  stable,  the  firm  now  has  offices 
in  ten  cities  around  the  world 
including  Toronto  (the  largest  with 
160  lawyers),  Montreal  (with  120), 
Ottawa,  Calgary,  Vancouver,  New 
York,  Hong  Kong,  Sydney,  Singapore 
and,  of  course,  London. 

After  more  than  30  years  in 
London,  Stikeman  has  established  a 
history  and  thoroughbred  reputation 
in  the  UK  that  makes  its  ten  lawyers 
(seven  Canadian  and  three  English) 
perfectly  placed  to  act  and 
participate  fully  in  the  fast  growth 
and  expansion  of  Canadian 
investment  in  Britain  and  Europe. 

Moreover,  Cobbett's  savvy 
introduction  of  English  law 
capability  at  Stikeman  three  years 
ago  has  ensured  the  firm  can 
navigate  and  negotiate  important 
Canadian  clients  through  the  often 
tricky  waters  of  British  and 
European  law. 

"In  September  1997,  we  started 
practicing  English  law  as  well  as 
Canadian  law,"  Henderson  says.  "A 
lot  of  business  is  governed  by  English 
law,  so  we  thought  we  could  use  this 
capability  to  help  our  clients  and  to 
serve  our  international  practice." 

The  nature  of  Stikeman's  UK 
practice?  "Our  work  is  not  dissimilar 

to  what  we  do  in  Canada  but  there 
is  a  fundamental  difference  in  that 
here  we  are  Canadian  lawyers  sitting 
in  a  foreign  market  either  negotiating 
or  managing  international 
transactions  or  servicing  UK  and 
European  business  concerns  who 
need  Canadian  legal  advice." 

This  means  providing  Canadian 
legal  advice  on  the  ground  here 
mainly  in  the  areas  of  corporate, 
securities  law  and  tax  advice  to 
corporate  and  financial  services 
clients  who  need  it,  says  Henderson. 

Without  naming  specific  clients, 
he  says  the  office  is  currently  acting 
in  three  particular  areas:  with 
Canadian  businesses  involved  in 
acquisitions  in  England,  projects 
in  Hungary  and  joint  ventures  in 
Spain  and  Africa. 

"Basically,  we  negotiate  and 
manage  international  transactions 
and  provide  Canadian  legal  advice," 
says  Henderson.  And  when  advice 
related  to  local  law  is  required,  the 
legal  work  is  contracted  out  to  local 
firms,  he  adds. 

As  for  the  future  of  the  London 
office  itself,  it  looks  like  clear  sailing 
ahead.  "Yes,  it's  working  out  quite 
well  and  Stikeman  remains  strongly 
committed  to  this  market."

Saints  win  CIS  A.  A 

Hockey  Championship 






E  ighteen  years  is  a  long  time 
between  championships  for  the  First 
Hockey  team  but  the  2000-2001 
Saints  finally  brought  home  the 
Conference  of  Independent  Schools' 
Athletic  Association  trophy.  The 
game  was  played  in  front  of  a 
packed  house  at  Upper  Canada 
College  with  the  Saints  earning 
a  well  deserved  2-1  victory. 

In  the  year  in  which  the  School 
decided  to  withdraw  from  the  local 
York  Region  Athletic  Association 
(thereby  foregoing  any  chance  at 
qualifying  for  the  Ontario  Provincial 
play-downs)  the  Saints  compiled 
an  impressive  11-4  regular  season 
record  in  the  tough  C.I.S.A.A. 
schedule.  Three  of  four  defeats  were 
at  the  hands  of  Upper  Canada — the 
other  against  eventual  semi-final 
opponent  St.  Michael's  College 
School.  S.A.C.  won  its  best  of  three 
semi-final  series  against  St.  Mike's 
in  two  games  posting  victories  of  6-0 
and  3-1.  Upper  Canada  took  on 
Nichols  School  winning  that  series 
in  two  games  as  well. 

In  a  thrilling  final  (formatted  as  a 
one  game,  sixty-minute,  winner-take- 
all)  the  Saints  travelled  to  Toronto 
to  take  on  the  13-0-2  Blues.  U.C.C. 
came  out  strong  in  the  opening 
minutes  pressuring  the  Saints  in 
their  own  end.  S.A.C.  then  swung  the 
momentum  in  their  favour  narrowly 
missing  on  a  couple  of  glorious 
chances.  U.C.C.  struck  first  with  a 
power-play  marker  midway  through 
the  first  period.  S.A.C.  countered 
with  the  lone  goal  of  the  second 
period  on  a  nice  power-play  goal  of 
their  own  as  seniors  Paul  Perrier 
and  Ross  Marshall  teamed  up  on 
a  deflected  point  shot.  The  third  J 
period  had  some  great  end-to-end 
action  with  St.  Andrew's  carrying 
the  majority  of  the  play.  Finally, 
with  U.C.C.  down  a  man,  the  Saints 
power-play  went  to  work.  Grade  12 
student  James  Gideon  scored  off 
a  rebound  from  fellow  classmate 
Nicholas  Weedon.  The  Saints  had 
just  8:59  remaining  to  capture  their 
first  C.I.S.A.A.  crown  since  1983. 
S.A.C.  dominated  play  until  Upper 

Canada  pulled  their  goaltender  with 
just  over  a  minute  left  in  regulation 
time.  UCC  carried  a  territorial 
advantage  but  never  really  generated 
a  serious  scoring  chance.  In  the  end 
the  Saints  prevailed  as  a  large  crowd 
of  Andrean  supporters  chanted  Wfwn 
The  Saints  Go  Marching  In! 

The  Saints  are  coached  by  Old 
Boys  and  former  First  team  members 
Paul  Bedard  '79  and  Michael  Roy  '85. 
On-ice  leadership  came  from  Captain 
Paul  Perrier  and  alternates  Adam 
O'Meara,  Ross  Marshall  and  Jack 
Popiel.  This  year's  team  had  great 
character  and  finished  its  36  game 
schedule  with  an  overall  record  of 
24-12.  Season  highlights  included 
;i  second  place  finish  at  the  Ridley 
College  Early  Bird  Tournament 
and  a  Bronze  Medal  at  our  own 
MacPherson  Tournament.  The 
C.I.S.A.A.  championship  is  a 
deserving  conclusion  for  a  group 
of  young  men  who  played  their 
hearts  out  all  year  long.

1988  Captain  Michael  Brewer.  Mike 
was  the  guest  speaker  at  this  year's 
Tournament  luncheon  and  first 
recipient  of  the  Yuill  Award. 

Despite  three  Ontario  provincial  championships  in  1982,  1987  and  1993,  the  C.I.S.A.A. 
trophy  had  eluded  our  grasp  since  1983.  Graduating  seniors  of  the  class  of  2001

Michael  Brewer: 

SAC  hockey  great  reflects  with,  an  eye  iocus&ed  solidly 

on  the  future  at  the  18th  annual  MacPheuon  Tournament 


The  son  of  former  Toronto  Maple 
Leaf  great  Carl  Brewer,  Mike  Brewer 
may  well  be  the  best  hockey  player 
St.  Andrew's  College  ever  produced. 
A  mobile,  Bobby  Orr-style  defenceman 
who  could  take  control  of  a  game, 
he  won  a  First  Hockey  O.F.S.S.A. 
Championship  and  two  First 
Football  I.SA.A.  championships 
during  his  1985-1988  tenure  at  the 
school.  But  he  was  much  more  than 
athletics.  He  started  his  final  year  at 
S.A.C.  being  elected  Head  Prefect, 
and  finished  by  winning  the 
Macdonald  Medal,  the  school's 
highest  award.  He  subsequently 
attended  Brown  University,  where 
he  majored  in  History,  was  named 
the  Ivy  League's  Player  of  the  Year 
in  1992,  and  was  named  first  team 
Ail-American  for  U.S.  College  hockey 
the  same  year.  In  1999,  he  was 
elected  to  the  Brown  University 
Sports  Hall  of  Fame,  and  was  named 
to  the  school's  list  of  top  100 
athletes  in  the  20th  century. 

A  thoughtful  and  well-spoken 
young  man,  Mike  has  moved  on  from 
hockey,  returning  to  school  for  a 
degree  he'll  earn  from  the  University 
of  Toronto  this  spring.  Clearly, 
athletics  was  a  focus,  but  now  Mike 
looks  ahead  to  a  different  kind  of 
future.  Volunteer  work  for  many 
summers  with  child  cancel'  patients 
has  kept,  him  grounded  and  sparked 
an  interest  in  counselling 
psychology.  Andrean  writer  Jim 
McGillivray  spoke  to  Michael  at  the 
school  in  November. 

Why  did  you  and  your  parents 
choose  SA.C? 

It  goes  back  to  a  few  summers 
I  spent  at  a  camp  called  Camp 
Ponacka.  Al  Jackson  was  a  Master 
here  and  he  was  Director  of  the 
Camp.  He  and  a  couple  of  other 
students,  including  Jamie  Ogden 
and  Phil  Kiff,  spoke  highly  of 
St.  Andrew's.  Al  invited  me  up  and 
introduced  me  to  the  school.  I  was 
in  Grade  10  at  Northern  Secondary 
School  in  Toronto,  and  we  were 
looking  for  a  place  where  I  could 
be  more  involved  in  the  school  and 
sports.  St.  Andrew's  was  a  boarding 
school  with  a  good  sports  program, 
Cadets  and  a  variety  of  other 
activities.  There  was  a  lot  going  on 
and  that's  what  I  was  lacking.  I  liked 
the  idea  of  leaving  home  and  being 
on  my  own  during  the  week  and 
going  home  on  the  weekends.  I  think 
my  experience  at  camp  prepared  me 
for  that  and  of  course,  I  also  knew 
some  people  here. 

Looking  at  your  achievements  at 
St.  Andrew's,  obviously  this  was 
more  than  a  place  to  play  hockey. 
What  else  did  you  get  out  of 
St.  Andrew's  while  you  were  here? 

Hockey  was  fun  but  it  wasn't  the 
main  thing  for  me  here.  I  also 
enjoyed  playing  football,  rugby  and 
in  general  there  was  a  great  overall 
enjoyment  of  the  school.  I  came  away 

Mike  Brewer  '88,  talks  with  Jack  Popiel 
'01  about  university  options  in  the 
U.S.  Jack  is  one  of  six  Saints  from  this 
year's  team  who  will  graduate  in  June. 

with  a  sense  of  confidence  and  an 
idea  of  how  to  live  and  work  with 
people.  When  you're  here  boarding 
with  Masters  and  peers  all  through 
the  week,  you  learn  how  to  get  along 
and  contribute  in  the  community. 
Achievements  in  sports  and 
academics  combined  to  increase  my 
confidence  socially  as  well. 

You  showed  great  talent  as  a 
hockey  player;  you  were  obviously 
a  pro  prospect.  Yet  you  chose 
university  and  university  hockey 
over  Major  Junior  hockey,  which 
would  be  the  usual  route.  Why 
was  that? 

At  that  time  minor  hockey  in 
Toronto  was  very  political  and 
controlling.  As  a  young  kid  you 
had  no  rights;  it  was  like  being  a 
professional  at  age  14. 1  wanted  to 
get  away  from  that,  and  that  was 
another  reason  I  came  to  SA.C. 
I  could  play  the  sport  for  the 
enjoyment  and  the  appreciation  of 
it,  which  is  something  I  really  did  get 
here.  It  took  away  the  pressures  that 
young  kids  face  playing  high  levels  of 
rep  hockey  in  the  cities.  The  choice 
of  the  college  route  was  another  step 
in  that  direction.  But  it  was  also  a 
result  of  the  influence  of  my  father 
and  other  NHL  alumni  who  were 
friends  of  his.  Every  former  hockey 
player  you  meet  says,  "Get  an 
education."  These  guys  had  great 
careers,  then  came  out  of  the  NHL 
at  a  relatively  young  age  without  an 
education  to  fall  back  on.  You  could 
be  the  greatest  player  on  skates, 
break  a  leg  and  it's  over  and  then 
what  do  you  do?  So  1  think  I  followed 
the  advice  of  some  prettj 
experienced  and  valid  mentors. 
These  guys  were  adamant  about 
education.  I  was  fortunate  that  1 
could  get  an  education  at  a  good 
school  that  offered  a  high  level 
of  hockey. 

Michael  Brewer 

Mike  was  Ivy  League  Player  of  the  Year  in  1992  and  was  named  first  team  All-American 
for  U.S.  College  hockey  that  same  year.  In  1999  he  was  elected  to  the  Brown  University 
Sports  Hall  of  Fame  and  was  named  to  the  School's  top  100  athletes  in  the  20th  century. 



Did  you  feel  that  SA.C. 
prepared  you  academically, 
athletically  and  as  a  person 
for  a  top  Ivy  League  school 
like  Brown? 

Is  anybody  ever  prepared  for 
university?  As  far  as  sports  go,  I 
was  prepared,  and  in  terms  of  living 
with  people  in  residential  life  I  was 
prepared.  Academically,  Brown  was 
a  tough  school.  I'm  sure  it's  the 
same  with  anybody  starting  in  a 
good  school,  it's  a  step  up  and  it's 
difficult.  But  certainly,  St.  Andrew's 
gave  me  the  study  habits  and  the 
discipline  and  the  knowledge  of 
when  I  needed  to  do  more  to 
improve.  Another  helpful  thing  was 
having  the  relationships  I  had  with 
staff  here.  Staff  were  accessible  and 
I  got  to  know  them  as  people.  It 
made  it  easier  for  me  to  develop 
similar  relationships  at  Brown  ai 
overcome  the  fear  of  going  to  see 
these  people  when  I  needed  help. 

You  were  a  hugely  successful 
player  at  Brown,  and  then  you 
finished.  Where  did  hockey 
take  you  at  that  point? 

At  the  end  of  my  third  season 
at  Brown,  I  was  drafted  by  the 
Washington  Capitals.  After  my 
fourth  year  I  went  into 
negotiations  with  them.  This 
wasn't  exactly  what  I'd  planned. 
I  had  been  talking  with  the  New 
York  Rangers  for  a  number  of 
years.  The  day  before  the  draft 
the  Rangers  called  to  say  that  it 
looked  like  I  was  available  and 
that  they  were  looking  forward  to 
drafting  me.  It  looked  like  I  was 
in  their  plans.  Well,  as  it  turned 
out,  Washington  had  the  pick 
right  before  New  York  and  to 
everyone's  surprise  they  took  me. 
That  was  disappointing  because 
at  least  in  New  York  I  knew  I  had 
someone  in  my  corner.  I  was 
worried,  because  all  through  my 
fourth  year  I  never  heard  from 
Washington  even  though  I  was  an 
Ail-American.  Finally  we  went 
through  contract  negotiations 
and  they  gave  me  the  impression 
that  I  wasn't  part  of  their  future. 
I  tried  to  get  a  release,  but  they 
wouldn't  do  it.  Their  offer  was 
much  lower  than  other  All- 
Americans  were  getting.  To  make 
a  long  story  short,  they  finally 
released  me,  but  not  until  the  end 
of  the  summer  when  all  the  other 
teams  were  set  for  the  season. 

So  your  hockey  career  went  in 
another  direction? 

A  couple  of  other  directions,  actually. 
After  detouring  to  San  Diego,  I  went 
to  the  Canadian  National  Team  for 
a  year.  We  were  based  in  Calgary, 
but  this  was  a  travelling  team,  so  I 
ended  up  going  all  over  the  world. 
We  went  to  Japan,  Russia  and  almost 
every  country  in  central  and  northern 
Europe.  It  was  a  great  year  at  a  very 
high  level  of  hockey.  The  training 
program  was  very  regimented,  so  I 
was  probably  in  the  best  shape  of  my 
life.  It  was  a  tough  physical  year 
because  you  play  lots  of  games  back 
to  back.  At  one  point  in  the  year,  we 
were  in  Sweden  and  I  was  asked  if  1 
would  like  to  play  there  the  following 
year.  This  was  a  great  opportunity,  so 
of  course  1  said  yes. 

That  must  have  made  for  quite 
a  lifestyle  change. 

Oh,  yes.  I  was  there  for  a  year.  1 
studied  Swedish  and  was  quite  fluent 
by  the  end  of  the  year.  I  read  the 
Swedish  paper  every  morning  and 
could  write  Swedish  as  well.  The 
hockey  was  great,  the  Swedes  are 
skilled  and  they  play  at  a  very  high 
level.  Then  the  following  year  I  had 
an  invitation  to  play  in  Italy,  which 
was  great  fun  as  well.  The  people  are 
wonderful  and  of  course  it  was  the 
only  year  of  my  career  that  I  didn't 
lose  weight  playing  hockey— Yes. 
1  learned  Italian,  too.  It  wasn't 
completely  idyllic;  the  problem  in 
some  of  these  European  countries 
i.s  that  the  leagues  aren't  very 
professionally  run.  There  are 
financial  problems  and  sometimes 
the  players  donl  gel  paid,  We 

eventually  got  paid  but  often  the 
local  players  didn't  gel  paid,  so  that 
created  some  tension,  Ml  the  same, 
it  was  still  a  great  year. 

Was  that  the  end  of  your 
European  hockey  career? 

I  thought  it  might  have  been.  1 
came  back  and  took  a  year  off.  I 
contemplated  moving  on  and  did 
some  work  with  Frontier  College, 
which  is  a  literacy  organization. 
Well,  then  Rob  Mantrop,  the  younger 
brother  of  Paul,  an  SAC.  classmate 
of  mine,  said  he  was  going  to  Holland 
to  play  and  they  needed  some 
players.  So  I  ended  up  in  Holland  for 
two  winters.  The  people  were  great 
there  but  I  resisted  learning  Dutch, 
which  is  not  an  easy  language.  After 
the  two  years  in  Holland  that  was  it, 
I  decided  it  was  time  to  get  on  with 
other  things. 

'Career'  time? 

Not  quite.  I'd  always  wanted  to  do  a 
second  degree  in  something  that 
interested  me.  I'd  spent  eight 
summers  doing  volunteer  work  at  a 
camp  for  children  with  cancer.  That 
made  me  very  aware  of  psycho-social 
and  psycho-emotional  issues  that 
cancer  patients  go  through.  That 
sparked  an  interest  in  the  health 
fields  and  led  to  the  program  I'm 
currently  in  at  University  of  Toronto 
in  counselling  psychology.  I'm  in  my 
second  year  of  a  two-year  program 
and  I  love  it.  I  hope  I  can  continue 
on  with  that.  I  finish  this  in  May 
and  hope  to  get  into  at  least  some 
part-time  work  in  July. 

This  is  quite  a  departure  from 
a  life  of  athletics.  What's  your 
new  motivation? 

It's  nice  not  being  physically  sore  any 
more!  I  still  enjoy  remaining  active 
but  I  felt  that  it  was  time  to  move 
on  to  something  new.  Ultimately,  the 
motivation  in  playing  hockey  was 
because  I  enjoyed  the  game  and 
wanted  to  reach  the  highest  level 
possible.  The  same  motivation 
applies  to  counselling:  I  enjoy  it 
and  want  to  be  good  at  it.  In  both 
cases,  the  impact  on  the  people  is 
rewarding,  as  people  come  away 
with  an  experience  that  is  different 
and  generally  positive. 





Your  dad  was  a  fabulous 
Toronto  Maple  Leafs  hockey 
player  back  in  the  days  of  the 
'original  six' NHL  teams  in  the 
1960s.  Then  he  made  a  comeback 
with  the  Leafs  in  the  late  1970s. 
Do  you  remember  any  of  those 
NHL  days? 

Well,  I'm  not  sure  if  I  have  memories 
or  if  I've  just  ingrained  everybody 
else's  memories.  When  he 
first  retired  from  the 
Toronto  Toros  in  1973 
I  was  very  young, 
remember  a  bit  of 
his  comeback  in 
1979/80,  and 
going  down  to 
the  Gardens 
as  a  12-year- 
old  to  skate 
around  with 
the  players.  It 
was  quite  a  thrill.  But  I 
certainly  wasn't  around  during  the 
glory  days. 

Did  you  ever  feel  that  people 
expected  too  much  from 
you  because  you  were  Carl 
Brewer's  son? 

Actually,  I  don't  think  so.  I  always 
knew  life  with  him  simply  as  my 
dad.  There  may  have  been  some 
pressure,  but  it  wasn't  something  I 
was  conscious  of.  I  loved  the  game.  I 
think  I  put  more  pressure  on  myself. 
My  dad's  father  was  also  a  great 
athlete  back  in  the  days  when 
professional  sport  in  Toronto  wasn't 
as  dominant  as  it  is  today.  He  was 
Toronto's  Athlete  of  the  Year  one  year. 
He'd  been  part  of  a  Toronto  team  that 
competed  for  the  World  Softball 
Championship  in  Chicago  in  1929. 
If  you  look  back  in  the  old  articles 
by  Toronto  sportswriter  Ted  Reeve, 
you'll  read  about  the  Brewer 
brothers — twins  and  remarkable 
athletes.  So,  in  fact,  rather  than 
feeling  pressure,  I  think  I  felt 
confidence  coming  from  a  family 
with  a  strong  tradition  of  athletic 

Your  dad  was  very  outspoken 
and  controversial  on  players'  rights 
issues  in  his  days  as  a  player.  Do 
you  think  this  might  have  hurt 
your  chances  of  making  the  NHL? 

Well,  I'd  like  to  blame  it  all  on  that!! 
But  the  truth  is  that  fortune  comes 
into  play  as  well.  Some  guys  get  in  who 
shouldn't,  and  some  guys  don't  who 
should.  People  make  their  own  breaks, 
and  perhaps  I  could  have  made 
some  different  decisions,  but 
the  decisions  I  made  seemed 
right  at  the  time  so  I  have  to 
think  they  were  for  the  best. 

What  advice  would  you  give 
to  aspiring  athletes? 

What  would  I  have  needed  to  hear  at 
that  age?  I  think  you  should  make  sure 
you  love  what  you're  doing,  that  you 
enjoy  it  and  have  fun  with  it.  If  you 
want  to  compete  then  you  should  be 
aiming  to  be  the  best.  One  important 
thing  I  saw  over  the  years  is  that  the 
guys  who  did  best  were  not  necessarily 
the  most  talented  guys,  but  the  guys 
who  worked  the  hardest.  Perseverance 
is  an  amazing  attribute  and  a  lot  of 
guys  who  you  thought  should  have 
hung  'em  up  a  long  time  ago  ended  up 
making  it.  My  first  year  at  Brown  we 
went  1-25. 1  was  stunned;  I'd  never 
played  on  a  losing  team  before.  But 
we  stuck  it  out  and  persevered  and 
ended  up  winning  the  Ivy  League 
Championship  two  years  later. 

Some  people  call  you  the  best 
hockey  player  ever  to  play  at  SA.C. 
How  does  that  make  you  feel? 

It's  very  hard  to  compare  eras,  so  who 
really  knows?  However,  to  have  people 
say  that  about  you  is  a  real  honour. 
You  become  a  little  more  appreciative 
of  recognition  after  your  playing 

career  has  ended.  Recognition  I  now 
receive  from  S.A.C.  and  Brown  has 
begun  to  mean  more  to  me  recently. 

What  are  your  recollections  of 
the  MacPherson  Tournament? 

It  was  interesting  coming  here 
from  the  extremely  prolific  Toronto 
hockey  scene.  "How  big  a  deal  could 
it  be?"  I  thought.  But  all  year  I  kept 
hearing  about  this  tournament. 
There  was  an  incredible  build-up 
to  it.  The  tradition  at  the  time  of 
playing  Notre  Dame  on  the  Friday 
night  was  pretty  important. 
I  didn't  know  what  to  expect.  When 
the  first  Friday  night  came  I  was 
pretty  worked  up.  We  took  to  the  ice 
and  there  was  Notre  Dame,  the  place 
was  packed  and  very  loud.  I  thought 
that  team  in  my  first  year  was  the 
best  SA.C.  team  I  played  on.  Brent 
McPherson  scored  one  early  in  the 
first  period  to  put  us  ahead.  It  was 
2-1  for  us  by  the  end.  We  scratched 
and  clawed  to  keep  the  puck  out  in 
the  final  minute  and  ended  up 
winning.  It  was  a  great  game  for  us, 
and  I  remember  that  the  rest  of  the 
tournament  was  a  bit  of  a  let-down; 
maybe  that's  one  of  the  reasons  we 
didn't  do  so  well  in  the  tournament. 
It  may  be  the  same  now.  After  the 
hoopla  around  the  Friday  game  it's 
hard  to  get  up  again. 

When  you  look  back  on 
St.  Andrew's  now,  what  are  the 
things  that  come  into  your  mind. 

It's  an  overall  sense  of  the  school — the 
people  and  the  friends  I  made  more 
than  anything,  including  the  staff. 
Great  sports  experiences  and  great 
camaraderie.  We  won  two  football 
championships  and  a  hockey 
championship,  which  are  irreplaceable 
experiences.  The  people  and  the 
traditions  provide  a  unique  experience, 
once  you  leave  you're  not  going  to  find 
the  same  things  anywhere  else.  As  the 
years  pass  you  look  back  on  those  years 
more  and  more  fondly.

'70  John  Currie  wrote  Michael  Roy 
upon  receiving  'The  Sounds  of

the  memories  trickle  out  in  short 
bursts  bringing  with  them  a  few 
smiles  and  not  a  small  touch  of 
melancholy.  Very  obviously,  time 
has  changed  many  parts  of 
St.  Andrew's,  yet  it  has  also  been 
kind  in  holding  fast  to  some  of  the 
truly  important  elements  of  the 
school.  I  must  admit  to  feeling  a 
slight  sadness  when  listening  to 
"Ode  to  the  Haggis"  as  I  have  only 
heard  it  from  the  lips  of  Lloyd 
MacPherson.  Rupert  does  a  fine  job 
of  it  but  memory  tells  me  that  only 
"Fudd"  could  do  it  justice.

John  MacMillan  wrote  last  fall: 

Dear  Jim  and  Mike, 

As  I  prepare  for  another  trip 
across  the  country  to  BC I  thought 
I  would  drop  you  a  quick  line. 

In  May,  upon  returning  to 
Ontario  for  the  summer,  I  was 
appointed  Head  Coach  of  the  Ontario 
President's  Fifteen  Rugby  Team.  This 
team  was  being  assembled  to  play 
against  the  Welsh  National 
Development  Fifteen  in  their  second 
game  of  a  five  game  tour  of  Canada. 
The  Welsh  team  led  by  Graham 
Henry,  originally  of  New  Zealand 
and  one  of  the  best  coaches  in  the 
world,  had  a  touring  party  of  '45 
people  and  each  athlete  was  being 
paid  10,000  pounds.  This  squad  is 
their  building  group  for  the  2003 
World  Cup  being  hosted  by  Australia. 

Although  dealing  with  a  very 
limited  budget  I  set  out  to  prepare  a 
team  that  would  compete  against 
this  ominous  looking  force.  To 
achieve  this  goal  I  needed  the  help  of 
a  few  people  who  are  well  known  to 
S.A.C.,  namely  Tim  Jackson  '97 and 
Stuart  Swan  Esq.  Having  had  Stuart 
as  a  mentor  in  my  early  coaching 
years  at  S.A.  C  I  relied  upon  him  for 
insight  and  calm  in  what  was  a  high 
pressure  operation.  He  responded 
brilliantly  and  was  of  great  help 
and  support  throughout  the 
campaign.  Tim  Jackson,  who 
captained  S.A.C.  to  the  OFSAA 
Championship  in  1997,  was  the 
captain.  Tim  has  been  playing 
rugby  in  BCfor  the  Pacific  Pride 
(Canadian  U23)for  the  past  two 
years  and  has  progressed  to  a  level 
where  we  may  soon  see  him  playing 
for  the  Canadian  Men 's  National 
Team.  Needless  to  say  his 
contribution  was  immeasurable. 
Tim's  play  on  the  field  was  only 
overshadowed  by  the  poise  and 
maturity  he  exhibited  off  the  field 
as  a  true  gentleman  and  a 
fine  Andrean. 


With  a  three-day  camp,  held  at 
S.A.  C,  as  our  only  preparation  we 
trained  three  times  per  day  and  all 
the  boys  worked  very  hard.  When 
the  big  day  finally  came  I  wish  I 
could  say  I  knew  we  would  play 
well  but  I  really  had  no  idea.  Our 
preparation  was  sound  but  the 
obstacles  were  numerous. 

By  9:00  p.m.  Tuesday  night  it  was 
all  over.  We  lost,  but  we  held  them 
close  and  finished  with  a  19-13  final 
score.  The  Welsh  camp  was  shattered 
by  their  performance  and,  in  true 
Canadian  fashion,  we  had  tackled 
them  relentlessly  and  fell  just  short 
of  scoring  two  breakaway  tries  that 
would  have  won  us  the  match.  Four 
days  later  the  Welsh  played  the 
Canadian  development  team 
(Canada  A)  and  won  67-10.  The 
Ontario  game  proved  to  be  the 
closest  of  all  five  games  and  in  that 
we  all  took  enormous  pride. 

I  would  like  to  thank  Stuart  and 
Tim  for  their  contributions.  I  would 
also  like  to  thank S.A.C.  and 
Ted  Staunton  for  supporting  us 
throughout  the  camp.  Without  the 
help  ofS.A.C.  our  preparation 
would  have  been  inadequate  and 
our  performance  would  have 
suffered.  Thanks  to  all  and  best 
wishes  all  around.

Geoff  White,  Michael  Worry,  and 
their  Silicon  Valley  high-tech  firm, 
Nuvation  Labs,  are  attracting  enough 
business  attention  to  have  been 
quoted  in  two  high-profile  Canadian 
publications  over  the  last  year: 
Maclean's  Magazine  and  Business 
Week.  Specifically,  Michael  was 
quoted  on  the  company's  common 
practice  of  hiring  through  Canadian 
universities  due  to  the  dearth  of 
skilled  engineers  in  and  around  the 
company's  head  office  in  San  Jose,  CA. 
They  find  that  hiring  and  importing 
co-op  students  from  such  universities 
as  Concordia,  University  of  British 
Columbia,  Simon  Fraser  University 
and  the  University  of  Waterloo — their 
alma  mater — is  pretty  painless  thanks 
to  the  N.A.F.T.A.  free-trade  agreement. 
It's  also  a  great  way  to  spot  top-notch 
full-time  talent  early.  "It's  like  a 
four-month  interview,"  Michael  told 
Maclean's  in  November  of  last  year, 
"and  a  great  recruitment  strategy."  A 
software  and  hardware  engineering 
firm  that  is  well  established  given  its 
volatile  environment,  Nuvation  Labs 
has  grown  quickly  since  it  was  begun 
by  Geoff,  Michael  and  Michael's 
brother  Jason  Worry  '95  in  June  of 
1997.  Today,  the  company  has  35 
employees,  just  opened  a  branch 
office  in  Toronto,  and  is  definitely 
worth  watching — from  either  side 
of  the  border.
