|Born||Alfred S. Davis|
July 22, 1893
Stanlyn (1893-?) was the stage name of amateur magician Alfred S. Davis who's all-round magic act had no set patter. 
Supposedly when attacked by hostile natives in the jungles of Africa, he saved his life using magic.
Stanlyn was a contributor to magazines and was a member of the Magicians' Club, which he joined in 1920. His "Lady from Nowhere" illusion was published in Goldston's Magical Quarterly, Vol 6, No 1, Dec 1939.
