Hi E.T.,

The Stuart Family ran Quaker Oats for many years and as far as I know still does. I don't know much detail on this family except that they are one of the wealthiest and prominant citizens of Lake Forest, and I'm sure that you could find plenty of information on them in the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Historical Society.

I know that the Historical Society has a web page, but I don't have that link at hand. Here's the link to our local library that might help.

Best of Luck!
