Stewart Ross James was born October 15, 1912 in Toronto, Canada. He came to the United States in 1926 and lived during his high school years in Birmingham, Alabama. As he noted in his high school yearbook, his ambition in life was "to be a success in the field of Interior Decoration." By 1940, James was living in New York and working as an interior designer at 101 Park Avenue, Room 1405. He moved to Winchester, New Hampshire, where he continued his work as a designer. He collaborated with the New York architectural firm of O'Connor and Kilham on projects for Kenyon College in Ohio, in 1954 and for the Phoenix Insurance Company (1949) and the Trinity College, both in Hartford, Connecticut and for the Firestone Library in Princeton University (1949, 1953). He worked for the Cunard Line designing the interiors of its Boston office in 1952. He also designed lamps for the Hansen Lamp Company of New York in 1957. He worked for Alfred Andrews, Alco Art, Inc., Alfred Rummler, Inc., and Westport. (Credit: Historic New England Library and Archives).
