ALBERT A. STEWART ONE OF THE LOST ISLANDERS

Brooklyn Daily Times

Albert A. Stewart, who formerly made his home at St. James, L. I., is supposed to have gone down with the ship. He was in St. James last summer and was counted as a friend of Mayor Gaynor---near whose home he resided. Mr. Stewart was formerly connected with the Strobridge Lithographing Company, of Cincinnati, and had an office in the Times building. He also was a part owner in the firm of Barnum & Bailey. He had practically retired from active business and was living in Paris with his second wife, who was a Miss Cole.

Mr. Stewart was a man of considerable wealth, and his interests here necessitated frequent visits to this country. He sailed from New York in January. His wife had expected to accompany him on the Titanic, but was prevented by illness at the last moment. Mrs. Charles Taft, of Chicago, his daughter, and her two children are also in France.

Mr. Stewart was about 65 years ago.
