“the growth of he and his sister” in this sentence from the Guardian

Just read this line on the Guardian:

He dismantles his bedroom and helps tidy the house, daubing white paint over the pencil marks on the doorframe which have measured the growth of he and his sister from infancy until now.

Can’t figure out how he is correct here. Shouldn’t it be him?

Answer

Yes, it should, but it’s another example of the instability of English pronouns.
