Biographical history

After National Service as an RAF Photographer and several years with ICI, Stan came to the University in 1963 to initiate the then Library Photographic Service. He took up a part-time appointment with the transfer of the Unit to the Central Media Service in 1984 and dedicated his time to the Peto collection, bringing attention to an often-overlooked collection. He retired at the end of September 1990, after 27 years with the University.
