Nearly simultaneously with the announcement that the T Square Club, of Philadelphia, has been awarded the
medal offered by the St. Louis Architectural Club for the best Club-exhibit of Mention Designs comes the news of John Stewardson’s lamentable death. As a founder of the Club, as its president, and for years a member of its Executive Committee, he remained to the last one of its most enthusiastic supporters. Many of his drawings are now in the Club rooms, and his record as the winner of many competitions is upon the minutes of the Club.
His generous aid, sincere criticism, and deep interest in the welfare of the Club contributed more to the advancement of architecture in Philadelphia than can now be realized.
