Biographical history

Charles D. Stewart was the son of the Rev. Charles Stewart, DD, Professor of Theology, Dean of Theology, and Chaplain at Mount Allison University from 1870-1910. He attended the Male Academy from 1875 to 1881, later marrying Annie D. Mosher, Ladies’ College student 1885-1886, and daughter of the Rev. John A. Mosher, an earlier student of Mount Allison.

Charles had a dried goods store on Bridge Street, Sackville, New Brunswick, which he operated from 1897 until 1907, when he moved to Regina. He had three children: Charles M. (b. 1902), another son, and a daughter, A. Jean Lavinia (BA 1931). He was the brother of Lavinia Margaret (Ladies' College, 1874, and Mount Allison Academy faculty member, 1875-1881), Harriet Starr (BA 1882, MA 1885), and William H. (Male Academy 1874-1876). In 1917, Charles’ wife, Annie, died. Her sister Harriet moved to Regina to care for his household and children, where she later died in 1931.
