Boxes 6-8 include records related to Philip Andrew Standen (PAS). PAS was born in Saskatoon on 24 April 1932 and died near Chatham, New Brunswick, on 8 February 1955. The papers consist of some academic and scholarship records from school and university; correspondence with his mother while he was stationed elsewhere in Canada with the RCAF after graduating from the University of British Columbia, June 1954 to February 1955; correspondence from friends and family mostly from 1954-1955; photographs, newspaper clippings and official correspondence relating to his death and funeral; a family portrait and negative; a few miscellaneous pieces, including a couple of letters from Trudy Mounce to Phil’s mother, Effie Young Standen, after his death. Phil’s death in an air crash in the RCAF on 8 February 1955 in Chatham, New Brunswick, precipitated a voluminous correspondence. Professor Standen notes that the letters received in connection with this event by his parents, SHS and EYS, are included here in the dossier of Philip Andrew Standen because they were located with his other papers. There are some letters and other items relating to Phil in the dossier of SHS.
