Vernon Lincoln Stewart
1909 - 1982
Vernon Stewart was invited to join the Voice of Prophecy King's Heralds quartet in 1939 as one of the replacements for two of the original members, brothers Louis and Waldo Crane. He was recommended by the Cranes, who had known and sung with him when they were schoolmates at Southwestern Junior College, now Southwestern Adventist University. Although he enjoyed the experience of singing second tenor, he left after one year.
He was born in College Place, Washington, and grew up in a family in which several brothers and relatives were active in music. After he left the VOP, he pursued a career in architecture and construction. He eventually left construction and enjoyed a career in designing public buildings in Southern California.
