  • Personne
  • 1925-

Rita Briansky, painter, printmaker-etcher and teacher, was born in 1925 in Grajewo, Poland. Together with her mother and two sisters, Bella and Becky, the family moved to Ansonville, Ontario in 1929. Here, they joined Briansky’s father and uncle, Jake Perlmutter, and his family in Ansonville, which at the time had a small Jewish community. In 1939, the family moved to Val d’Or, Quebec and finally to Montreal in 1941. Then in her mid-teens, Rita Briansky was a keen student who nourished a continued interest in art. With the move to Montreal, the Briansky Family struggled financially and was unable to afford the fee for Rita’s high school education. It was the Yiddish poet Ida Massey who found Rita a job so she would be able to pay for her schooling. This encouragement served as the beginning of a valuable friendship, as well as helping foster Briansky’s artistic career. Massey later introduced Rita to Alexander Berkowitz who at the time was giving art classes at the St. Urbain Street ‘Y’. Her training and experience quickly expanded, taking the young artist through Montreal’s Ecole des Beaux-Arts and New York’s Arts Student League. In 1949, Rita married fellow painter, Joseph Prezament.The couple had two children together, Anna and Wendy. Briansky’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions both in Canada and internationally. Her body of work is diverse in both theme and subject matter, reflecting her interests in fields such as astronomy and the natural world, while remaining deeply rooted in her own experiences. Following her travels to her birth place and memorial sites in Poland in 1995, Briansky produced the ‘Kaddish series’ as her reflection on the trauma of the Holocaust. Other series have broadly used landscape, portraiture and still lifes as a passionate response to the world around her and that speak fundamentally to the human condition. Briansky has participated in multiple collaborative projects, for example the children's book “On Stage, Please” with dancer/ choreographer Veronica Tennant. Briansky is long-established within Montreal’s art community working and living alongside a tight-knit group of artists. In addition, she has worked as teacher, both of art history and studio arts. Briansky’s artistic practice has won her multiple awards and her work is included in the permanent collections of institutions such as the National Gallery in Ottawa, the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Nicholl, Christopher

  • d.2011

Dr. Christopher I.H. Nicholl was born in Winnipeg and raised in Saskatchewan. He attended Ridley College and earned a bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics at Queen’s University. During the latter years of WWII he served in England with the Royal Air Force Bomber Command. After the war Dr. Nicholl returned to academic life, earning two doctorates: one in Aeronautical Engineering from University of Toronto and one in Physics from Cambridge. He began his professional career with the National Research Council in Ottawa. In 1956 he became a professor of Mechanical Engineering at Université Laval, where he took on leadership roles as head of the Faculty and a member of the Conseil de l’Université. In 1976 Dr. Nicholl became the 14th Principal & Vice-Chancellor of Bishop’s University. In an environment in which governments and media were united in urging universities to produce “trained manpower,” he made sure Bishop’s remained true to its original mission: to offer a broadly based liberal education. His number one priority when he took over in 1976 was the survival of the institution. The arrival of the CEGEP system had cut enrolment in half; this decline led to faculty and staff insecurity. During Dr. Nicholl’s ten year term student numbers slowly increased, staff and faculty morale improved, and proper publicity and advertising increased the University’s visibility. Despite back breaking budget cutbacks at all levels of education, the future of Bishop’s looked more stable in 1986 when he retired. Bishop’s awarded Christopher Nicholl an honorary doctorate degree in 1986 for his significant contributions to the University. After retirement, he spent seven years researching the history of Bishop’s, culminating in the 1995 publication of his book Bishop’s University 1843-1970.

Christopher Nicholl was married to Margaret Harding for nearly 60 years, and they had five children: Lucy, Sarah, Tina, Kate and John. Many happy years were spent as members of the Bishop’s community, and upon retirement Christopher and Margaret moved to nearby Moulton Hill. Following family, they moved again to Gloucester near Ottawa in 1995. Christopher Nicholl was an avid walker, and for many year he and his wife conducted regular walking expeditions to England and France, including Offa’s Dyke and Hadrian’s Wall. Christopher Nichol died on February 28, 2011 in Fredericton NB.

After two years teaching school, he proceeded to Lincoln College, Oxford, taking the B.A. honours degree in 1928 and the M.A. in 1933. Dr. Preston came to Bishop's as lecturer in Classics in 1930. He held that post until 1964 when he was appointed Vice-Principal. He became Principal and Vice-Chancellor in 1969. In June 1936 Anthony Preston married Phyllis Thompson, daughter of Judge and Mrs. G.H. Thompson of Cranbrooke, B.C. They had two children: Andrew, and Sara. Dr. Preston was a member of the Oxford Society, the Canadian Historical Society and the Canadian Classical Association. He received a D.C.L. degree from Bishop's in 1960.

When Dr. Preston retired in 1970 he was given the University's ultimate accolade, the appointment as Principal Emeritus. This was a richly deserved honour for the only person in Bishop's history to run the gamut from lecturer to the highest post, a long, hard and sometimes dark journey.
Dr. Preston died in Oakville, Ontario on 15 April 1991 at the age of 88. He was known for his wit, warmth and love of literature and life. He was admired by those he taught and counselled; often referred to as "the best lecturer I ever had."
