his appointment as one of the first faculty members at the new Erindale College, where

Myths (1972), was widely used. Invigorated by new challenges, he opened the Major
Roberts restaurant in Toronto, where poetry readings accompanied the cuisine. Most
recently, he was researching his Welsh ancestry and, interested in community lore to the
end, entrusted his family's furnishings and artifacts to Tredegar House, Newport, South
Wales. Academic, teacher, restaurateur, art-lover, party-giver extraordinaire, he leaves
scores of friends around the world, for whom - and for whose children - his sympathy,
imagination and generosity never failed, and in whom he inspired much devotion. "I was
