For millionaire mathematician James Stewart, music will play on after his death
from The Globe and Mail
In April of last year, the day before he was to leave for a three-week Asian lecture tour, James Stewart went to his barber for a haircut. "As I stood up to get out of the chair, we all heard — crack!" Mr. Stewart says as if recounting a home-run shot. "It was my left hip breaking." Doctors found the millionaire Toronto mathematician had developed multiple myeloma, a cancer that attacks bone marrow as well as kidneys. They gave him a new hip, and chemotherapy, to no lasting effect. His doctor, a former calculus student, tells him he has less than a year to live.
