Administrative History
Morley Torgov (b. 1927-) is a Canadian novelist and short story writer and former commercial lawyer.
Torgov was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to Allan (b. Russia, 8 July 1895-1964?) and Janey (nee Colish) Torgov (b. England, 1901-d. Sault Ste. Marie, July 1926). Allan Torgov owned and operated a clothing store in Sault Ste. Marie named Allan's. Morley married Anna Pearl (nee Cohen) in 1952 and had two children, Sarah Jane Steinberg and Alexander Torgov (b. 1959-d. 2009), and four grandchildren.
Torgov was educated at the University of Toronto, receiving his LLB from Osgoode Hall and was called to the bar in 1954. He became a partner in the law firm, Olch, Torgov, Cohen and specialized in commerical law. While practicing law in Toronto during the 1960s, he turned to writing. Torgov's first book, "A Good Place to Come From" (1974), a comic memoir of growing up Jewish in Sault Ste. Marie, was made into a CBC mini-series and won the Stephen Leacock Award for humor. Torgov continued to write other books including "The Outside Chance of Maximillian Glick" (1982) winning him his second Stephen Leacock award. The CBC produced a television series based on this work and the book was published in several languages. This success was followed by St. Farb's Day (1990) which won The City of Toronto Book Award and the Jewish Award for fiction. Other published works include "The Abramsky Variations" (1977), "The War to End All Wars" (1998), "Stickler and Me" (2002), "Murder in A-major" (2008), and "The Mastersinger from Minsk" (2012).
Torgov's writings also include several screenplays for television and film, numerous essays and articles for the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Montreal Gazette, Canadian Lawyer and the New York Times Sunday Magazine. Torgov has been honored by the Canadian Institute for the Blind, naming their annual award the TORGI after Torgov, the first receipient of that award in 1984. In 2005, he received the Order of Mariposa, a lifetime recognition award from the Leacock Society and in 2015 received the Order of Canada as an acknowledgement of his contributions to Canadian Society.
