Stuart has been seen on television and in magazines representing the Fairbanks House and was the host of the Fairbanks House Virtual Tour.

The Fairbanks House has been the ancestral home of many military heroes, artists, actors, sports greats, a Vice-President, suffragists, equality and ethnic activists, inventors, scientists, physicians, etc. Stuart will present a few of the earlier famous and infamous people who were descendants of the Fairbanks Family. He will bring to light little considered attributions of these Fairbank(s) and descendants by other surnames.
