The move from the ESSA office at 901 S. Miami Ave. to Virginia Key was scheduled for the end of the first week of August 1972.  Jack Kofoed, Jack Egland and Carol Wolverton wanted Stewart away from the office during the move so his family rented an RV and spent several days at Disneyworld in Central Florida. Everything was packed and moved to AOML.


The small sitting area in Harris B. Stewart’s office in the fifth floor (December 1972). View is towards the north. A small glass coffee table was centered around a set of chairs. Stewart’s desk was on the opposite side of the sitting area.
