Name of creator
Harriet "Hattie" Stewart was born in 1862 at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. She was a daughter to the Rev. Charles Stewart and Harriet Starr. At an early age, she moved with her family to Sackville, New Brunswick, where her father was, for many years, the Dean of Theology at Mount Allison University. Her elder sister was Lavinia M. Stewart (1857-1907).
She attended the Mount Allison Female Academy from 1871-1878, and then enrolled in the College. In 1882, she graduated with a BA -- the first woman in Canada to achieve the degree. In 1885, she received a MA from Mount Allison.
Stewart was active in benevolent and philanthropic organizations and for 13 years edited "The Palm Branch", a Methodist Church publication. In 1917, she moved to Regina, Saskatchewan, and died there on 1 November 1931.
