Avie Bennett, developer turned publishing giant, dies at 89 - The Globe and Mail

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

O. Mitchell, Jack Hodgins, Guy Vanderhaeghe. Other celebrated Canadian novelists edited by the late Ellen Seligman and published during the Bennett years included Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje, Rohinton Mistry and Jane Urquhart.“Among the poets enthusiastically published in Avie’s time were Leonard Cohen and Al Purdy, both of whom were close to him,” Mr. Gibson recalled.The company issued about a hundred titles a year, as well as acting as agent for several foreign presses.Later, in 2013, Mr. Bennett lived out every publisher’s dream: He was thrilled to attend the formal ceremony in Stockholm with Alice Munro’s daughter Jenny, who accepted her mother’s Nobel Prize in Literature. But by then Canadian publishing had changed drastically and his glittering acquisition had slipped from his grasp; he no longer owned McClelland & Stewart.Mr. Bennett died on June 2 in Mount Sinai Hospital of unknown causes. His son Paul Bennett said his father collapsed suddenly the previous day at the Hazelton Place Retirement Residence where he lived for the past 17 months. He had become frail and used a walker. He had moved into the retirement home when his wife Beverly could no longer look after him in their Yorkville condo. Only a few days earlier, father and son – both huge baseball fans – had gone to see the Blue Jays play (they lost 3-1).Avie Bennett was born in Toronto on Jan. 2, 1928, the second of two children of Sophie (née Kleinberg) and Archie Bennett. Archie and his brothers, Dave and Jacob, were home builders, working with their father, Saul; the family had relocated from Kingston, where Saul had operated a lumberyard.The three brothers founded Principal Investments in the 1930s and began to prosper when they turned to building commercial properties in the forties. “My great-uncle Dave was the driving force,” Paul explained.In 1952, taking advantage of the postwar boom, they built Sunnybrook Plaza at Bayview and Eglinton Avenues, the first such shopping plaza in Ontario. By the late fifties, they had built a string of shopping plazas across Canada estimated to be worth $100-million. A story in The Globe and Mail in 1956 called the brothers, by then in their 60s, the country’s biggest commercial landlords, whose tenants included every Canadian bank and retail chain store.Avie Bennett went to the University of Toronto but left without a degree in 1948 to work for the expanding family firm. His college years, however, were not wasted because on the steps of the university library one day he had met a co-ed named Beverly Shapiro who became the love of his life. He was 22 when they married in 1950 and Paul, the first of their six children, was born a year later.“I went everywhere with my father when I was a child,” Paul recalled. “I remember he took me with him in 1954 to show me Dixie Plaza, which was under construction and opening soon.”A plaza opening called for a big celebration with balloons, clowns, snacks, perhaps a band. “I was 3 years old and I said ‘Will you give out Dixie cups?’ And that’s exactly what he did.” (They were filled with ice cream.)Then, in 1962, Principal Investments became overextended and collapsed. When the company went into receivership, the founding brothers took the opportunity to retire, leaving Mr. Bennett to cope with the fallout.“One...
