Was the Mayor's Friend

ALBERT A. STEWART SAILED ON THE TITANIC WITHOUT HIS WIFE

Albert A. Stewart was for many years connected with the Strobridge Lithographing Company of Cincinnati and had an office in the Times Building.  He was also a part owner in the firm of Barnum & Bailey.  Up until two years  ago he made his home at St. James, L.I. where he was a friend and neighbor of Mayor Gaynor.  Since then he had practically retired from active business and was living in Paris with his second wife, who was a Miss Coe of this city.

Mr. Stewart was a man of considerable wealth and his interests have necessitated frequent visits to this country.  He sailed from New York in January last after spending several weeks here arranging his business affairs.  His wife had expected to accompany him on the Titanic, but was prevented by ilness 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 of age.
