Toronto. I was very sorry to learn of the death of Stan White. I’ve known Stan for about 40 years since he joined the society. Stan was president of our Toronto branch from 1985 to 1987 when the branch merged with the national organization. Stan was the guiding light of our 3D presentations for many years.

Stan was born in Birmingham, England and became an industrial photographer in the Midlands of England in the 1940s and 50s before coming to Canada. Here he joined the studio headed by the late Everett Roseborough before becoming a lecturer at Sheridan College.

In the PHSC, Stan held executive positions, did many 3D presentations at our Toronto meetings, and wrote articles for the Photographic Canadiana as well as writing a column for that journal. He provided a lengthy illustrated article in late 2013 titled, “Annals of a 1940s – 50s Industrial Photographer in England“.

Stan was also heavily involved with the National Stereoscopic Association (NSA) and wrote some publications on 3D.

On the publication of his latest book, Stan was featured in a Hamilton Spectator article by Jeff Mahoney late last year.  Stan’s website was created earlier with the help of his son-in-law. A link is included on the right side bar of this website as well as in the obituary that appeared in the Brantford  Expositor.

Stan’s whimsical wit and charm will certainly be missed by this society.
