Colonel Scott was born on July 3, 1892, in the town of Meaford, Ontario. As a young man Colonel Scott was impressed with the west. He rode the Canadian Pacific Railway to the end of the line at Alsask, Saskatchewan, and made his way from there to Oyen, Alberta to begin homesteading. When the First World War broke out in 1914, he joined the 89th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force and later transferred to the Royal Flying Corps.
Returning to Canada after the war, Colonel Scott spent time roping wild horses, farming and in 1920 married Olga Larson. In 1922 Colonel Scott joined the 15th Canadian Light Horse as a Lieutenant. By 1934 he had become commanding officer of the 15th Alberta Light Horse, as the unit was then known, and attained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.
On Sept. 1, 1939, the command to mobilize came and Lt. Colonel Scott was given the task of bringing the Calgary Highlanders from an under strength and poorly equipped militia unit to a full-strength battalion in the shortest possible time. Under Colonel Scott, the Highlanders became the first unit in the Canadian army to undertake battle drills.
At the conclusion of the war, Colonel Scott took a discharge from the army and returned to Calgary to practice law. He maintained his active practice certificate until 1976. Colonel Scott took an active interest in the school that bore his name, frequently coming to the school during special days.
