Thread Name: Obit: Stan James of Washington (Nov 2008)
Subject: RE: Obit: Stan James of Washington has died
Irene and I were deeply saddened by this news. We met Stan and Kirby around 1967 as our children were in the parent co-operative preschool at the University Friends Center. He became the second president of the Seattle Folklore Society, getting me off the hook around 1969. We loved Stan a lot!

We would like to help in any way we can, of course. If anyone is writing an obituary, I hope we can publish it in the SFS Flyer, and maybe a Folklife newsletter, and I suspect Paul Dorpat would help get something in the Times or PI. If someone isn't already doing it, maybe Paul would?

I suspect there are a lot of SFS people who would help with a memorial gathering, and perhaps something could happen at Folklife.

I can be reached at 206-545-4460, or
