Abstract

Lindsay Rutherford Stewart (1917-2010) was an Invercargill doctor, who retired to Queenstown. He was a keen mountaineer and photographer in his youth. Although photographic bookplates are not common, this is a fine New Zealand example. Both Dr Stewart’s hobbies are represented, and fittingly, the bookplate is pasted into a work on peaks and glaciers. His climbing companion in the photograph was E. O. ‘Jim’ Dawson, who later became a well-known surgeon in Dunedin.
