Kate Walker interviews Stewart in early 2012

DONALD EUGENE STEWART (1926-2012)

Stewart got his BA in Architecture at Miami of Ohio in 1952 and a MA of Regional Planning at UNC-Chapel Hill shortly thereafter.  He went to work for Jim Webb as a partner in City Planning and Architecture Associates.  In 1958 Bob Anderson joined as a partner.  Webb left the firm around 1963.  Stewart designed many buildings and homes around Chapel Hill including UNC's Carmichael Auditorium, the longtime home of Dean Smith's winning basketball team.   

The old Chapel HIll Public Library, designed by Stewart in association with Brian Shawcroft, was put under easement to Preservation North Carolina through the efforts of Chapel Hill City Council member Sally Greene, herself a modernist homeowner
