James Stewart, associated with Scripps Institution of Oceanography since 1952. As diving officer from 1960 until his retirement in 1991, he managed the nation's oldest and largest nongovernmental research diving program which became the model for safe and effective conduct of international research diving programs. The scientific community recognizes Stewart as an expert on the interactions of divers and the marine environment, including marine mammals. He also was a consultant to NASA, in the development of techniques used in the underwater training of astronauts for extravehicular activity. He was one of the initial inductees into the NAUI (National Association of Underwater Instructors) Hall of Honor, among all of his other awards in his lifetime.
