Who is Stewart & Why he does what he does?
I have been conducting tours of Detroit since 1968. I have lived in Indian Village since 1996, having moved there from Grosse Pointe. I graduated from MSU in 1962 with a Major in History & earned a Masters Degree in History from EMU in 1967. I subbed in DPS in 1963 & then taught full time in Hazel Park from 1963-1964. From 1964-1993 I taught Social Studies, coached, & was involved in many clubs at East Detroit High School (now known as Eastpointe) Teaching Humanities at WSU kept me busy from 1994-2001.
In addition to teaching, and conducting tours, traveling has been one of my passions. I have now been to all 50 states, all of the Canadian Provinces, (plus Yukon) 141 countries, I have visited 17 countries in Africa and every country in Europe, except Iceland .. See my website for more info on my two Around The World Trips.
