Century Memorial

In the medical profession of this city, Dr. George David Stewart was in many ways a commanding figure. Quite aside from professional achievement his practical wisdom and tactful energy, with a background of culture and humorous expression, ensured the success which attended his executive responsibilities. During nearly forty years he was a driving power in promoting the interests of the Academy of Medicine, which conferred on him the unusual distinction, for that organization, of electing him to its presidency during three successive terms.
