Jack Stewart Papers, 1919-1971
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The Jack Stewart Papers consist of two scrapbooks and a folder of loose scrapbook pages. The large scrapbook contains newspaper clippings, photographs, personal mementos and other memorabilia from Stewarts's athletic career at Grafton High School, South Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota dating from 1919 to 1929. Also included are keepsakes from dances and other social events. Toward the back of this scrapbook are six pages of photographs with captions.

The smaller scrapbook contains clippings of sports articles written by Stewart between 1921 and 1926. The articles cover North Dakota college and high school sports, mostly football and basketball. Most clippings were written by Stewart and published in the Fargo Forum, Grand Forks Herald, and Argus Leader, among other newspapers. Several clippings feature news about Stewart's athletic accomplishments or his role with the fundraising drive that led to the construction of Memorial Stadium on the UND campus.

A folder contains unbound scrapbook pages featuring more newspaper clippings and a 1971 Fiesta Bowl pamphlet. These clippings are primarily about social events at UND in the 1920s, with an emphasis on the Delta Zeta sorority. Some articles near the back of the folder are about UND athletics. Most clippings are undated and sources are not specified.
