I wasn't aware of Mr. Bain's passing until today and it brought tears to my eyes. He was my first contact at VHS in 1960 and became my mentor and hero for the 2 years I was fortunate enough to have him as a teacher. His greatest ability was to inspire a desire to learn. He, surreptitiously, arranged for us to have a few transistor radios smuggled into the classroom so we could listen to Alan Shepard's first space flight because "history is being made and we should hear it". Of course, all the blackboards in the room were covered with History note outlines...."to be completed by tomorrow morning!".
In my thoughts daily and always with love and respect. Be very proud of your husband and father, Bain family, he truly was the best.

Mort was an outstanding teacher and a better human being. He was the rarest of persons in that he genuinely cared about the welfare of his students. I can not imagine my life without Mort Bain. I looked up to and admired him. Long after I graduated from McGill in 1980, he was always in my corner during a period where it was very difficult for a young teacher to find meaningful work. He was at the same time the smartest person I ever knew and the most down to earth. The world was a better place because of Mort and his concern for other people. He always supported the underdog and he left an enduring imprint on the minds and memories of his students. My thoughts go out to Joan and the family at this difficult time.

Dear Joan, I just learned about Mort's passing while in Truro last week. Words cannot express how saddened I am for you and your family. I remember meeting Mort and thinking what a great guy he was. Know that Jim and I are thinking about you and keeping you in our prayers. Love, Marilyn and Jim

I have fond memories of Mort starting in the early 1970s when "the Bains" were good friends with my parents and our families shared summer houses in the country several years in a row. He and my father remained close friends for many years. Mort and Joan were regular guests at Boxing Day parties we would have at our house. I always enjoyed talking about politics and history with him.
