Glen Stewart - Craftsman in Wood

Glen and Kris Stewart were married 26 March 1975 and started the process of getting his Green Card so he could live and work permanently in the USA. Glen was born and raised as a young kid on the prairies of Canada.

Glen then came to live with his aunt Maida Bartels and Uncle Fred and discovered surfing at Santa Cruz while in high school at Los Altos High.

Kris earned her MS in Computer Science from San Diego State University in 1979 and got her dream job at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. We rented a nice little home in the Meadows of Altadena, directly across the Arroyo Seco from JPL. The Arroyo Seco is also the home of the Rose Bowl.

Glen ran into an old Verdugo High buddy who suggested he work with Ken Ross on his project to resurrect the Bolton House. As Glen read and practiced his skills, he found his career in the style of Greene and Greene workworking and construction.

I think these three articles helps highlight Glen's professional career.
