"Dr. Morris can be described through these four words: faith, passion,
zest and generosity. He exemplifies these values every day as he touches
lives here at Stewart and around the world," said David Stutts, Senior
Vice President and Chief Risk Officer.

Rising through the ranks, from office boy to President and Co-Chief
Executive Officer, Morris grew up in the family business, learning from
his father W. C. Morris. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from
the University of Texas at Austin and his LLB degree from Southern
Methodist University in 1943. The same year, he graduated from the US
Navy Midshipman's school at Columbia University and served in the
Pacific during World War II.

"Stewart has largely defined our culture upon which we continue to build
even today," said Matt Morris, Chief Executive Officer, Stewart
Information Services Corp. "We are extremely grateful for his legacy and
his continuous investment in the Stewart Title family, our industry and
our community."

Morris, one of Houston Baptist University's Founding Fathers, twice
chairman and currently a member of the Board of Trustees of HBU, and his
wife Joella were instrumental in the establishment of the university,
which opened its doors in 1963. Involved in his community for more than
50 years, Morris has served as Advisory Trustee of the National Trust
for Historic Preservation, Director of the Harris County Heritage
Society, Galveston Historical Foundation and the Oldham Little Church
Foundation, Senior Chairman at Southern National Bank, Chairman of the
Carriage Museum of America and Honoree Life Trustee of the Carriage
Association of America. In 1995, Morris was inducted into the Texas
Business Hall of Fame.

Even at 98 years old, Morris can still be found in his office, meeting,
engaging with customers and motivating leaders.
