Albert J. Stewart Papers, 1921-1924
1.0 Linear feet; 2 document boxes
By type of item and chronologically thereunder.
Scope and Contents Note
This collection contains correspondence, telegrams, legal documents, oil run statements, and maps of Albert J. Stewart, a partner in Stewart-Hamilton Drilling Company in El Dorado, Arkansas, concerning his oil business.
Business correspondence for part of 1921 is missing due to a fire that destroyed most of the records of the company.
Albert John Stewart was born in Mexico, Missouri, on 1882 July 21. He graduated from high school before attending business college. Stewart worked as a train dispatcher for five years and was the manager of a life insurance company for six years. He married Pearl V. Westfall in 1905 and they had one daughter, Alba.
Stewart moved to Little Rock in 1920 and worked in the oil business. He and his partner, Louis K. Hamilton, formed the Stewart-Hamilton Drilling Company in El Dorado, Arkansas where they bought, sold, and traded oil and gas leases. He was also engaged in business enterprises with W. S. Biles, a Memphis banker.
In late 1923, Stewart decided to get out of the oil business and moved to Fort Smith where he worked as a manager for the Home Building and Loan Association. He then moved to Texas but continued working as a manager for the association. Albert J. Stewart died on 1957 August 28 in Los Angeles, California.
