Frank Stewart

Frank Stewart has been involved with bridge as a journalist, author, editor, competitor, teacher and creator of the popular "Daily Bridge Club" column.

Stewart is a longtime enthusiast of the game. In 1968, while serving in the U.S. Army, he represented South Korea in the Far East Bridge Championship. He went on to win several regional events in the '70s before discontinuing tournament play to devote full time to writing about bridge.

He is the author of 19 books – including "The Bridge Player's Comprehensive Guide to Defense," "Better Bridge for the Advancing Player" and The Devyn Press Bridge Teacher's Manuals and Student Texts – and has also published hundreds of technical articles, tournament reports and fiction and humor pieces in most of the world's leading bridge magazines and online publications.

He was co-editor from 1984 to 1989 of the most widely circulated of these – The Contract Bridge Bulletin – and continues to contribute a monthly instructional column he began in 1981. He edited the American Contract Bridge League's World Championship books from 1983 to 1987 and was a principal contributor to the "Official Encyclopedia of Bridge" from 1986 to 1989.

Stewart is a graduate of the University of Alabama. He and his wife Charlotte, a speech-language pathologist, make their home in Fayette, Ala.
