Sketchbooks (44 volumes) contain drawings and sketches in pencil and ink. Among the subjects are: travel sketches from Hong Kong, China, and Greece; heads and a portrait of Stewart's mother; 10th Annual Ocean Grove Memorial Day Art Event; and many studies of sheep made for the Cluett Mural commission.
