Biography

Stanley was the son of a political family from Kentucky. His father was a government attorney. His grandfather, A. Owsley Stanley, a member of the United States Senate after serving as Governor of Kentucky and in the U.S. House of Representatives, campaigned against Prohibition in the 1920s.

At an early age, he committed himself to St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C. Without having graduated high school, he studied engineering at the University of Virginia for a year, maintaining a 3.4 grade point average with minimal effort before dropping out due to his disinclination for slide rules and mechanical drawing.
