TitleHenry Stewart
AbstractPhoto and bio of Henry Stewart, county marshal and co-founder of the Stewart-Peck Sand Company in 1897, born in Connecticut in 1858 and coming to Kansas City about 1877. br/ A pioneer in the [sand] industry, he [Stewart] brought new ideas into vogue, so that pontoon bridges gave way to the more modern plan of bucket dredges, invented by the late Robert Gillham, and the bucket dredges to steam dredges and centrifugal pumps. In 1897 he formed a partnership with Frank Peck under the name of the Stewart-Peck Sand Company, and they now own their own cars, switch properties, steamboats, and dredges, and yards.
