Founded in 1905 by two young Englishmen named Thomas Howard Garner and Frank Jarvis, the name Conway Stewart tends to be attributed to the names of two comedians, Conway and Stewart, who were then appearing at Collins' Music Hall in Islington, and purportedly used as aliases by Garner and Jarvis. But despite the absence of recorded history, Conway Stewart pens have been prized for their high-quality craftsmanship for over 90 years. Prime Minister Winston Churchill (who was among Great Britain�s most prolific writers) used a Conway Stewart pen during World War II. Queen Elizabeth received two gold Conway Stewart pens for her golden wedding anniversary, and Prime Minister Tony Blair presented a No. 58 set to each leader at a G8 Summit. But the value of a company whose very name evokes nostalgia is that they continue to produce instruments both for the every day user and the pen enthusiast who seeks 'par excellence,' ensuring that nostalgia will last long into the future.
