Thread Name: Obit: Stan James of Washington (Nov 2008)
Subject: RE: Obit: Stan James of Washington has died
I have put up a page for Stan on the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society web site. It has a picture (at NW Folklife Festival several years ago) and two mp3 clips of his singing at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair (Mermaid & The Skin Diver, and Klondike). I'll post other material on this web page as I collect it. If you have any photos or recordings you would like to share, email me and we can figure out how to get it on the web site.

It is very moving and interesting to read all these posts. Stan is well remembered by many people and he had a big influence on folk music here in Seattle. For me, his passing is still sinking into my mind. I still sort of expect to see him coming into my house with a big smile on his face, telling me of his latest adventure or some new project of his.
