Biographical Sketch: Ruth Law Stewart (February 12, 1917 – August 1994) trained as a nurse at Frasier-Ellis Hospital and Nurse Training College, Dothan, AL, graduating on May 14, 1941. Her parents Robert Lee and Mattie Lee (Crumpler) Stewart, named her for the then-famous aviatrix Ruth Law.

They had four children: Nita Sue (August 1942, St. Louis, MO), Nels Stewart (January 1945, Kansas City, KS), twins Pamela Jane and Patricia Ann (December 1949, Kansas City, KS).
