Donald Stewart Quay County, New Mexico

Donald Stewart, a resident of Tucumcari, who is serving as County treasurer of Quay County, came to this place in charge of the Gross-Kelly Mercantile Company, which established business here at the planting of the town in 1901. The company sends its supplies over a radius of fifty miles. The store is well equipped with a large line of general goods, and the trade is constantly growing as the country becomes settled.

Mr. Stewart was first called to the office of County treasurer by appointment, and in 1904 was elected to that position, which he is now filling. He is also the vice-president of the Commercial Club and one of its directors. He is active in public development and is a promoter of many progressive measures. Bringing to the southwest the enterprise and activity which dominate other sections of the country, there are found here men of marked business activity and with progressive ideas concerning citizenship, and to this class Mr. Stewart belongs. His efforts are of a practical character, and those who know him recognize his worth as a citizen and individual.
