Stancil E.D. Johnson is a psychiatrist and frisbee enthusiast.

He is a member of the International Frisbee Hall of Fame[1] and the Disc Golf Hall of Fame.[2]

He is considered a pioneer in competitive disc golf and the history of the sport. In 1975, he wrote Frisbee: Practitioner's Manual and Definitive Treatise.[3] He is currently working on a book about disc golf.

Between 2000–2007, he was the first instructor at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) to teach a disc golf class.

In 2006, the inaugural West Coast College Open at CSUMB was held, and the tournament trophy presented to the winning team was named, "The Stancil Johnson Cup."[4]

In 2009, the two disc golf courses at CSUMB were renamed "The Stancil Courses at CSU Monterey Bay, featuring Cypress and Oaks" in honor of his contributions.
