The 'Voice of Stanford Stadium' is silenced

Original post made on Jan 23, 2011

Edward H. Macaulay, who at one time resided in Menlo Park for 35 years, made a name for himself with his voice. Anyone who attended Stanford football games from 1952 to 1990 and for one final season in 1992, probably remembers hearing his distinctive voice boom over the stadium loudspeakers.

Just wanted you to know that our information about Ed Macaulay regarding his education and service during WWII is wrong. He was a member of the Army, not the Army Air Corps. He didn't graduate from UC SF in '42. Where did you get this information? Being his son, I'd like to know. This is news to me

Please send an email to with your email address and phone number, and any corrections in the obituary. I'm checking into this.

Hi Duncan: Better talk to Ed's stepdaughter, Robin Polastri. She had the source of the info here. We used a handwritten note from Ed himself about his service and education records.

It reads, and I quote: "Wake Forest College, 1940-41 Econ in the Air Force; European Theatre of Operations, 3 years; Univ. of California S.F. Russ Blvd. Degree in Econ, 1942."

That's our source.
