An accomplished listee, Dr. Stewart celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value.

Dr. Stewart is a psychologist, biologist, civic leader and teacher of higher education who retired from academia as a professor emeritus of psychology at Northland College in Ashland, WI, in 2005. Teaching at the university since 1992, he taught and chaired the department and served as the director of the wolf research team. A recognized expert in the development of social behavior in domestic dogs and wolves in the wild, Dr. Stewart conducted extensive studies of the joint contribution of heredity and environment in the behavioral development of both humans and animals, authored various chapters to books by other authors and contributed numerous articles across various peer reviewed journals in relation to his work.

Spending the first few years of his career as a postdoctoral fellow in the Jackson Laboratory at the National Institute of Mental Health, Dr. Stewart then became a staff fellow before accepting an appointment at the University of Maryland as a clinical assistant professor in 1978. By 1980, he had co-founded and served as the chief of research and evaluation and chief of staff at the Regional Institute of Children and Adolescents in Rockville, MD, where he remained for eight years. Going back into education, Dr. Stewart then became a clinical associate professor at Georgetown University from 1983 to 1992 and an associate faculty member at Johns Hopkins University between 1986 and 1992, before ultimately accepting a position at Northland College.

Studying at the University of Birmingham in England during 1969, Dr. Stewart later earned a Doctor of Philosophy in psychobiology at Bowling Green State University in 1971 and became a certified child and adolescent psychologist. He formerly served two years as a sergeant in the U.S. Army from 1959 to 1961. Serving on the board of Science Integrity and the Institutional Review Board and as a member of the Wolf Monitoring Team for the State of Wisconsin during the mid-1980s and into the early 1990s, Dr. Stewart has also since become an elected fellow and charter member of the International Society for Research on Aggression as a member of the editorial board of the Behavior Genetics Association, a member of the American Psychological Association, the American Association of University Professors, the Animal Behavior Society, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. Locally, he served as President of the board of directors for CORE Community Resources, the Chequamegon Humane Association, the Duluth Scottish Heritage Association, and also served on the Washburn Harbor Commission and the Washburn Community Education Foundation board.

While at Northland College, Dr. Stewart developed some innovative, hands-on, project-based, experiential teaching methods that attracted a wide variety of capable students to this liberal arts college with an environmental emphasis. He forged strong mentoring relationships with these students and remains in contact with over 1,000 former students, who are how working in the helping professions, science and academia. Honored by Northland College several times, Dr. Stewart received an Outstanding Teaching Award, Outstanding Scholarship Award and Distinguished Service Award. He also received multiple grants from the W.T. Grant Foundation, the National Institute of Mental Health, and several other organizations between 1968 and 1980. Married for many years with one son, Dr. Stewart has been highlighted in nearly 30 editions of Who's Who, including Who's Who in America, Who's Who in American Education and Who's Who in Science and Engineering.
