The Origins and History of the Bobbs-Merrill Company by Jack O'Bar
    The Bobbs-Merrill Company divested itself of the bookstore in 1909 with the sale of that portion of the business to William Kerfoot Stewart, a Bobbs-Merrill sales manager. Stewart's family had earlier connections with the Indianapolis firm. His grandfather, William Stewart, had been a cofounder of Stewart, Bowen, and Company. The same firm later became Bowen, Stewart and Company, ne of the organizations which merged to produce Bowen-Merrill. The younger Stewart also acquired the old Robert Clarke Company of Cincinnati, one of the largest book and stationery firms in that part of the country.

    Over the years the bookstore, renamed the W. K. Stewart Company, continued a close relationship with Bobbs-Merrill. The store remained in the building at 911 West Washington Street where the publishing business was conducted. A year after the sale of the bookstore, the building passed into the hands of a new owner who required the space for another use. It was necessary for Bobbs-Merrill to move
