Quadrangle editor Stanley dies at 34
India Stanley, communications specialist and associate editor of Emory College’s newsletter The Quadrangle, died suddenly on Friday, Oct. 29. She is thought to have suffered a reaction to new medication. She was 34 years old.
Stanley had worked at Emory since 1999, first in the economics department and since 2000 in the college’s academic computing office. In 2002, she received a college staff development award that enabled her to travel to Scotland to report and create an iMovie chronicling that year’s Bobby Jones Scholars from Emory.
“She was a consummate professional,” said supervisor Carole Meyers, director of academic computing for Emory College. “She was tremendously creative and had enormous personal warmth; she had friends everywhere. She was a quiet person, but in her own quiet way she contributed so much to our community.”
A native of Richmond, Va., and a published poet, Stanley graduated in 1992 from Sarah Lawrence College with a degree in writing. Her work appeared in several Emory publications, including Emory Report. She is survived by her parents, Darwin and Kathleen Stanley of Croton on Hudson, N.Y.
A memorial service will be held on a date to be announced. A memorial website is being constructed at http://college.emory.edu/india.
