Memorable Manitobans: David McIntosh Stewart (1855-?)

Civil servant.

Born in Drummond Township, Ontario on 3 October 1855, son of Charles Stewart, he attended Carleton High School, McGill University College, and the Ottawa Normal School. In 1877 he was educational editor of the Hamilton Monthly Magazine and, the next year, was appointed a teacher of science and English literature in the High School at Smith’s Falls, Ontario. He resigned in April 1882 to move to Manitoba, later spending a year in the North West Territories before returning to Winnipeg as Secretary to J. A. M. Aikins until May 1885 when he accepted a position as Stenographer and Secretary in the Manitoba government. He was the founding President of the Manitoba Shorthand Writers’ Association (1884), and a member of the Executive Council and Corresponding Secretary of the Manitoba Historical Society (1886). He was a correspondent for several Canadian and American newspapers.
