Harold Andrew Stewart overcame poverty to attend Bucknell University, and then earned his law degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1924.

During the first World War, he and his entire Bucknell class formed an ambulance corps and served on the battlefields of Europe. He received the French Croix de la Guerre with palm and silver star for rescuing wounded soldiers under enemy fire.

Known for his charitable works, especially helping young people pay for college and law school, Stewart practiced law in Latrobe for decades and was a leader in many of Latrobe's community organizations.

The Latrobe Municipal Authority renamed the Latrobe Reservoir the H.A. Stewart Reservoir in his honor, and he was named the 1990 Man of the Year by the Latrobe Area Chamber of Commerce.

He and his wife, Helen L. (Shaw) Stewart, had one child, Helen (Stewart) Yealy.
