ATQ Stewart, 1929-2010

The Daily Telegraph has published an obituary of Professor Anthony Terence Quincey (Tony) Stewart (1929-17 December 2010), historian, teacher, academic and a best-selling author on Ulster politics.

Stewart was born on July 8th, 1929, at Belfast, where his father's family had been bakers and confectioners since the early 19th century. He was educated at Royal Belfast Academical Institution and took a first in History at the Queen's University of Belfast. He taught for five years at Belfast Royal Academy.

He was appointed a reader in 1975, but controversially was never granted a chair by Queen's University.
