at the Guelph General Hospital, Guelph on Saturday, May 13, 2006. Thomas Arthur McEwan, B. Com. (Queen's), MBA (Toronto), Fellow (Guelph), at the age of 81 years. Former President of the Ontario Society for Crippled Children (The Easter Seal Society), Founding Chairman, Board of Governors, University of Guelph. His life-long interests were the care of handicapped children and the education of all children. The husband of Bessie Sutton (Simcoe, Ontario) for 50 Years. The son of Frederick and Ecclesia (Campbell), R.R. 1 Scotland, Ontario, now deceased. The father of Ian (Debby) and Melanie and grandfather of Tyler, Austin and Ecclesia. Brother of Howard of Clearwater, Florida and the late Lela Manning, formerly of St. Catharines; Verna Anders formerly of Sturgeon Point. Tom received his early education in a one-room country school near the villages of Oakland and Scotland. He attended Delta Collegiate, Hamilton, until he joined the RCAF and served as a pilot during WWII. He completed high school at the Veterans Rehab School in Hamilton so he could attend university. He loved sports and he won the Track and Field Championship of Delta Collegiate. He was elected Permanent President by his graduating Year, Arts' 50 at Queen’s. His Year was composed of many veterans and they donated funds to establish the largest annual scholarship of any Year in the arts faculty. The Department of Veteran Affairs paid the fees of veterans which were about $200/year in 1946, and gave veterans $60/month to live on; $90 if they were married to support a wife. Tom often said the veterans with the most courage were the men who supported wives on $30/month. He said no one complained; they were just thankful to get an education to escape the great depression during which many veterans were raised as children. After years working with crippled children it did not prepare him for when he saw a thalidomide baby born with only paddles for hands and feet. He felt shocked and helpless until an employee of the Society, a skilled maker of braces and other equipment, thought he could develop an artificial arm activated by nerves in the shoulder. Tom strongly supported the Society investing in research, some of the first to develop the myoelectric arm. He spent most of his business career as President of the Sterling Rubber Company and Becton Dickinson Canada manufacturing medical products such as needles, syringes and surgical gloves. He received great satisfaction and pleasure working many years in the field of education as a school trustee, Chairman of the Board of Education of Guelph, Director of the Rural and Urban School Trustees Association and Chairman of the Committee on the Costs of Education of Ontario. His greatest pleasure came from memories of working with Premier Robarts and Dr. Jack McCarthy, Deputy Minister of University Affairs, to establish the University of Guelph in his thirties and living long enough to see it mature into one of Canada's finest universities.
