Honderich, Beland

▪ 2006

      Canadian publisher and editor (b. Nov. 25, 1918, Kitchener, Ont.—d. Nov. 8, 2005, Vancouver, B.C.), transformed the Toronto Star from a sensationalistic newspaper of the working class to the largest and most influential paper in the country. He recruited a higher quality of writer for the Star, enlarged the arts and international coverage, and steered the paper toward the support of social causes. He joined the Star as a reporter in 1943, became editor in chief in 1955, and assumed the role of president and publisher in 1966. He later served as chairman of the paper's parent company, TorStar.
