In PAW’s description, he was “the most photographed man at Reunions.” James Maitland Stewart ’32, back for his 50th reunion in 1982, drew a crowd wherever he went. But he didn’t seem to mind, according to photographer Andy Snow ’72, who was covering the festivities for PAW. “He was so gracious and so wonderful,” Snow recalled. “He was that guy that you think Jimmy Stewart would be.”

Snow, with his trusty Nikon, a fisheye lens, and slide film, captured the image above, featuring Stewart front and center in a sea of orange cowboy hats. The photo was never published in color, Snow said, which seemed like a shame to us. So here it is, in full Kodachrome glory — no filter required.
