Charles Stanforth was the dean of students of Marshall College after Marcus Brody. He was married to Deirdre.

BiographyEdit

In 1957, the FBI ransacked Indiana Jones' office, which scared the administration at Marshall College into pushing for him to be fired. Charles Stanforth, succeeded in getting the concession that he be placed on indefinite leave with pay, but to do this, Stanforth had to tender his own resignation.

After the affair of the Crystal Skull of Akator, and the clearing of Jones' reputation, Stanforth was presumably reinstated as Dean, and Indiana Jones became Associate Dean. Stanforth, his wife, and their two children, Don and Maggie attended Jones and Ravenwood's wedding, using Stanforth's Book of Common Prayer in the ceremony, which had to be rushed from its place in Stanforth's office desk.

Behind the scenesEdit

Charles Stanforth was portrayed by British actor Jim Broadbent in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

According to George Lucas, the character of Charles Stanforth takes the role that would have been filled by Indiana Jones' father Henry Sr., if actor Sean Connery hadn't opted out of the fourth film.[1] Despite this, his character is similar in function to that of Marcus Brody, the National Museum curator from Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, Stanforth gives both Indy and George McHale their mission to find Mayan artifacts in Mexico before they are captured by the Soviet Special Forces. Stanforth is later seen after the destruction of Doom Town when Indy and the Janitor manage to survive the nuclear blast with the refrigerator, they accidentally destroy Stanforth's car and apparently knock him out when opening the fridge's door.
