SIDNEY H. STEWART, assistant cashier of the Valley Bank of Phoenix. Arizona, was born
in Boston, Massachusetts, January 12, 1885. It was in that city he received a public school education and later
on received his commercial training in the Bryant & Stratton Commercial School. He came west in 1902, secured
a position as collector in The Valley Bank, of Phoenix, and the fact that he is still connected with this institution,
and has continued to advance, grade by grade to the responsible post of assistant cashier, demonstrates clearly
that he has been very successful in his chosen profession. He was appointed to his present position in 1908. Mr.
Stewart is Assistant City Treasurer in Phoenix and a director of the Phoenix Board of Trade. He is a Mason and
took a prominent part in the affairs of the order and held several offices until the responsibilities of his position
as assistant cashier required so much of his time that it was necessary for him to discontinue his activities in
the lodge. He organized Company A of the National Guard of Arizona, of which he was elected First Lieutenant, and
showed such marked military ability, that he was promoted to the position of Adjutant of the Third Battalion, which
he held for some time. He was later placed on the retired list, after having served seven years in the National
Guard of Arizona, and during this period his work was such as to win the commendation of his superior Officers.
He was united in marriage to Miss Nellie E. Battin in January, 1912, and they have one son, Sidney H. Stewart,
Jr. Mrs. Stewart was formerly a teacher in the Phoenix Union High School and takes a prominent part in the social
