Granville Stuart (1834-1918) was a prospector, cattle baron, frontiersman, vigilante, author, and U.S. Ambassador. He was one of the first prospectors to find gold in Montana, sparking a gold rush to that state. He later formed a cattle ranch, and helped to organize the Montana Stock Growers Association in 1884. In an effort to combat the rising occurrences of cattle rustling, Stuart began the vigilante organization, Stuart's Stranglers, which brought rough frontier justice to dozens of outlaws. After years of success in business, Stuart became interested in politics, eventually being appointed to the position of U. S. ambassador to Uruguay and Paraguay. In his latter years, he devoted himself to preserving Montana history, being involved in several historical preservation societies. So influential was he to Montana, he is sometimes referred to as "Mr. Montana."
