Granville Stuart, 1857-1918:

Stuart was an early Montana miner, rancher, and settler. He entered Montana in 1857 and, with the exception of a few excursions abroad, remained in the state until his death in 1918. He traveled extensively throughout Montana and his journals contain some natural history information. However, the majority of this information is directed at timber and grass conditions. Stuart was appointed State land agent in 1891 and was responsible for selecting over 600,000 acres of land which was transferred from the Federal to the State government. There may be a record of written accounts on many of these parcels as Stuart apparently did many field inspections.
