I was a very good friend of Stew back in our early college days in Golden,CO. I vividly remember in early "42 his coming to my fraternity room to tell me he was going to enlist in the army air corp, get into multi-engine and when the war is over become an airline pilot. He was right-on,later becoming a captain flying 747s for TWA, but of course at the time he had no idea the experiences he would go through to meet his goal. He went thru a lot. In fact there was quite a story about him in one of the Chicago Sunday magazine sections , a copy of which I kept for years,but unfortunetly have now lost. I would really like to recover a copy, but have no idea how to go about doing so.
