Sam Stewart joined the faculty of Regina College in 1940, after teaching at Upper Canada College in Toronto. Originally a native of Halifax, he completed a Bachelor and Masters of Arts degrees and played basketball at Dalhousie University. He also studied at the University of Toronto. At Regina College he taught Classics and coached basketball. He coached men's basketball (1940-1941, 1943-1945, and 1947-1948 to 1962-1963), junior varsity men's basketball (1950-1951 to 1954-1955), and women's basketball (1949-1950 to 1952-1953). In 1964 he was appointed assistant to the Dean of Arts and Science. He then spent seven years as Assistant Dean of Arts and Science and a further seven years as Assistant Dean of Arts. He was variously President of the Regina Classical Club, a Referee-in-Chief for Luther Invitational (Basketball) Tournaments, a member of the Sub-Committee to Investigate the 5/3 System, Chair of the Appeals Committee, and Arts Representative to the Search Committee for a Dean of Science. He retired from the University of Regina in 1981, and died shortly thereafter in 1983. He was survived by his wife Luverne and four children, Bud, Diane, and twins Sam and Marcia. In 1995 he was recognized for his contributions to Cougar Athletics by being named the first Builder in the Awards for Cougar Excellence (ACE).
