Born at Ashton, Ontario on 30 November 1871, he came to Manitoba in the 1890s and taught school at Elkhorn (1895), Hartney (1899-1900) and Emerson (1903-1905). In 1906, he moved to Winnipeg to become Principal of Pinkham School, later serving as Principal of Cecil Rhodes School (1918-1927) and Lord Selkirk School (1927-1938). He retired in 1938.

On 17 April 1895, he married Alma Harriet Alcock (1874-1956) at Winnipeg. They had four sons: Garnet Kelvin Stewart (1897-1918), John Ronald Stewart (b 1903), Alexander Kennedy Stewart (b 1905), and James Clarence Stewart (b 1913). He was a member of Westminster United Church, Schoolmasters’ Association (President), IOOF, and the Masons (Prince Rupert Lodge).
