Scope and content

The series is comprised of records created by and for Charles H. Scott. This series includes draft and script writing for a number of short stories written by Scott, along with the final drafts of the stories. Furthermore, the series consists of Scott’s notebooks where he makes journal entries, and in one particular instance, comments on his own retrospective exhibition in 1959. This series is also comprised of correspondence to and from William S.A. Dale, W.G. Duggan Gray, Moncrieff Williamson, the Canadian National Gallery, [Fred Ames] and R.H. Hume. Gifts given to Scott are also included within this series, as he was gifted the book All Creatures Great and Small from the author himself Ross Lort. Moreover, a picture for “Design Frieze of the Year” was gifted to Scott with a note stating from “Jake’s compliments”. Finally, the series contains newspaper clippings that focus on Scott’s exhibitions held in Vancouver. This series has been maintained in its original order and has been separated into file level description.
