Robert K. Stuart, attorney, Renville, was born in Ontario, Canada, in 1877, of Scotch-Irish ancestry. His preliminary education was received in the public schools of Owen Sound, Ontario, and at the Central University of Iowa, Pella, Iowa, of which latter institution his father was for a number of years the president. He graduated from the law school of the University of Minnesota in 1905, and was awarded a post-graduate degree in 1906 by the University. He was admitted to the bar of Minnesota in 1905. He located at Sacred Heart, in Renville county, Minnesota, in the fall of 1906, where he practiced law for about four years. In 1910 he was chosen secretary, with office at Belfield, North Dakota, of the Holland-Dakota Landbouw Compagnie, a Dutch corporation doing an extensive immigration and colonization business in western North Dakota. He was at the same time elected president of the First National Bank of Belfield, which position he held during his residence in Dakota. In September, 1912, he returned to Renville county to accept a position with the O'Connor Land Company and O'Connor Bros. State Bank of Renville, and has ever since been identified with those institutions. He was elected judge of the Renville Municipal Court in 1913.
