Biographical Note

Stanley Knickerbocker Faye was born in Aurora, Illinois, on July 30, 1886. Faye spent much of his life in the newspaper business. His father, Charles M. Faye had worked in newspapers for forty years, with the last thirty-two connected to the Chicago Daily News, the last fifteen as managing editor. Charles M. Faye died 1913. Stanley Faye followed his father's example by working as a reporter on The Chicago Journal and later becoming a department editor and music critic for the Chicago Daily News. Faye also served as assistant editor for another Chicago publication, The Musical Leader.

After retiring from active newspaper work, Faye began working almost exclusively in historical research and writing. His major field of study concerned Spanish and French colonial domination of North America. Faye published in the journals produced by several historical organizations and societies, including the Arkansas Historical Association. In addition, Faye was devoted to the study of the history of his hometown, Aurora. In 1947, Faye became the historical editor of The Beacon-News in Aurora and served in that capacity until shortly before his death on March 6, 1949.
