Abstract (Document Summary)

The 6-foot, physically fit [David Buller] died where he was stabbed, in the hallway outside his tiny office- part of a warren of small faculty rooms in the Gothic-looking Connaught Building on Spadina Cres. The building is isolated from the rest of the university on an island surrounded by busy traffic lanes, north of College St.

"David's work was not easy art. He's no Norman Rockwell," [Paul Casselman] added. The piece will be on display at Hart House for the memorial, said Casselman, who has known Buller since the two attended Earl Haig secondary school.

SAD TIME: Andrew Ward, left, a friend of slain University of Toronto art professor David Buller, above, stands in his Toronto studio with some of Buller's paintings. Buller, a well-liked teacher who was 6 feet tall and physically fit, was stabbed more than five times in the hallway outside his office.
