Born: 9/23/1902, Died: 12/29/1968

E. Stanley Young was born in Philadelphia to Florence (Porter) and Joseph Young. After graduating from West Philadelphia High School in 1919, he received his architectural education at the T-Square Club Atelier (1919-1922), Philadelphia School of Design (1921), and Drexel Institute (1922-1925). He served as a draftsman for Ritter & Shay (1919-1932) and as a job captain and project manager for Verus T. Ritter (1932-1942). While working for Ritter, he became acquainted with Ernest J. Baader and Walter L. Schultze. With them he organized the firm of Baader, Young & Schultze in 1942. After Baader's retirement in 1956, the firm continued under Young & Schultze until 1965, when Young and Elwood L. Exley, who had been made a partner in that firm, formed Young & Exley. Young may have ceased to practice about 1966, when this partnership dissolved.

Young joined the national AIA in 1944 and was a member of the Philadelphia Chapter. He served as the president of board of trustees of the United Presbyterian Church of Manoa, PA between 1942 and 1947.
