He served as the attorney for the Davie County Board of Education, attorney for the Town of Mocksville, chairman of the Mocksville School Board, chairman of the annual Masonic Picnic and a trustee of the First Baptist Church. When ready to go home from a day's work, Stewart picked up the telephone and when the operator said ""Number Please,"" he replied ""Jitney"" and hung up the phone. The town operator then called a cab and told the driver to pick up Mr. Stewart at his office and drive him home.
