- Biographie/Histoire administrative :
Mully, George, 1926-1999 : George Mully (1926-1999) was an American playwright whose initial scientific predilections were superceded by an interest in the theatre. In the early 1940s, Mully earned a scholarship to the American Academy of the Dramatic Arts, but was drafted by the U.S. Navy's Seabees and shipped to Guam. After his discharge from the Navy, Mully returned to the theatre, spending a year in Europe, and then returned to the United States to work as a puppeteer, stage manager, director, stage hand and lighting-designer for off-Broadway and 'on the road' productions. During another trip to Europe he met his future wife, Ann, a British citizen. Travelling between Europe and the United States, Mully worked directing operas, and taught opera production at Yale University's Summer School of Music and Art, where Ann eventually joined him and they married. Settling in Ann's home country of England, Mully continued to work on writing and directing plays. British theatre was not sympathetic to foreigners, and so Mully started an educational audio-visual company. Immigrating to Canada in 1976, he continued to preside over a small video production studio, writing, producing and directing programs relating to subjects and issues that interested him. His concentration was on international development and the Third World, the environment, social concerns, history, aboriginal peoples , music and the arts. The Mullys' interest in international development inspired them to sponsor the secondary and university education of a young Kenyan, Mark Nyangor (died 2002 of AIDS related illness). Nyangor, educated and empowered, spawned the charity 'Howard' leading to the 'Activation Trust', a charity whose mandate is to build schools in Kenya and to provide bursaries to AIDS orphans.
