  GrahamClayton: Charles H Stewart (Sep 26, 1877 - Marshalltown, Iowa - June 10, 1965 - Boise, Idaho).

Obituary taken from Idaho Chess Bulletin, Summer 1965:

"Yes, it is true. Our beloved Mt Stewart has passed away, and his passing will leave a void in Idaho and regional chess circles that will never be filled so long as players who knew him are still active in the game of games. His mark will always be on the Idaho chess scene. He distinguished himself with his fair play, gentle manner and outstanding sportsmanship. He was also the strongest player Idaho has ever produced.

His chess career began a long time ago, in Iowa, and covered many states and cities. Wherever he went, he looked up chess clubs and players - and usually came out on top. He played a lot of correspondence chess, since that was one way to keep playing chess during a time when players were widely scattered in the West. In CCLA (correspondence) play, he once won the championship of North America.

In 1947, he won the first Idaho Open Chess Tournament, thereby becoming State champion. In 1949 he won again. Age began to take its toll but, as late as 1960, at the age of 82, he tied for first in the State championship, only to miss the title in the tie break. He won the Boise City Championship many times. He competed frequently, years ago, in the Utah and Nevada tournaments and placed as high as 2nd in Utah, but his Nevada record is not known to the writer.

Let us hope we can all follow in the tradition of sportsmanship that he left behind."
