John McCallum, former Ryerson journalism professor, was ‘larger than life’

Former Ryerson journalism professor John McCallum died July 7 in Toronto at age 90. McCallum taught many of today’s prominent Canadian journalists during his time as a professor of newspaper journalism at Ryerson. He oversaw the production of the student paper the Ryersonian, and also wrote a daily critique of the paper, called Petals and Pebbles — a practice he introduced to newsrooms in China when he first went there in the 1980s.
