Biographical history

Stanley Fox (b. 1928) was a Vancouver filmmaker and film enthusiast. He made his first films as an amateur in the late 1940s. In 1953, he joined the film department of CBC Vancouver television as an assistant editor, eventually rising to the rank of unit director. He later founded filmmaking programs at UBC and SFU, taught at York University, and produced programs for TVOntario.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds mainly consists of Stanley Fox's own films, including the originals for "Suite Two: A Memo to Oscar" (1947, with Dorothy Burritt) and "In the Daytime" (1949-1950, with Peter Varley). The fonds also contains a video copy of some of Fox's earliest footage and shorter films. Also included are two reels of the three-reel documentary film "[Tropical Valley expedition]" (1931), which Mr. Fox purchased at an auction in Victoria.
