MS 223 Papers of Stanley Rowe

Stanley Rowe

Stanley Rowe (1924-92) began a career as a youth worker with the encouragement of G.P.Holden, a youth leader involved in the Duke of York camps. After war service in the Royal Navy, Rowe trained on the Nottingham University youth and community course. His first post was at Kingley Hall Settlement in the East End of London. After qualification, Rowe took a post as leader-in-charge at the Brunswick Youth Club in Chalfont St Giles. He remained here until 1954, when he was recommended by the education officers of the Council of Christians and Jews for the post of youth and community worker at Henriques House, which was the home of the Manchester Jewish Lads' Brigade and Club. In 1972 Rowe moved to Belfast to lecture at Ulster Polytechnic on youth and community work. He returned to Manchester in the 1980s to become provincial development officer for the Association of Jewish Youth.
