Henry Scovel Stewart loves to write. His mother was an artist; his father was a composer; and he is devoted to finding beauty in the art and music of the written word. To date, he has written a children’s book, a novel, several plays, and an anthology of poems. He brings much experience to the writing of The Stuffed Animal States, as he has been an attorney for thirty years, focusing particularly on representing children, once worked in The Executive Office Of The President Of The United States, and has run for office several times. He lives in upstate New York, dividing time between Rochester, Troy and Sodus Bay, where he is happiest while sailing, kayaking, writing and sharing life with his family and very special pets.
Henry Scovel Stewart graduated, magna cum laude and with highest honors, from St. Lawrence University, where he majored in Government and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. He received his law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the Bars of the District Of Columbia and the State of New York and various federal courts, including The United States Supreme Court. He has had his own practice of law in Rochester, New York, since 1988. He is the son of Henry Wellington Stewart, Jr., and Sarah Gorrell (“Sally”) Stewart, and he has one son, Whitney W.
