He was Founder and Chairman of the East Africa Study Circle and was editor of their journal, B.E.A, the Bulletin of the East Africa Study Circle for many years. He specialised in the postal history of British East Africa and published a great many articles on different aspects concerning it including a series on the postal history of Uganda published in Postal History International. He also exhibited nationally and internationally with great success.
Stuart was an avid researcher, a most likeable personality and had a fondness for cats, wine and music. He died at the young age of 59 in 1982 after a brave fight against leukaemia. Both he, and subsequently his mother, left all their estate to this Trust which is a lasting memorial to him.
