        History

        Eileen M. Scott was born on May 15, 1919. She attended Lord Byng High School until Grade 10, and in 1941 completed a four year art course at the Vancouver School of Art. Due to the scarcity of jobs in the art profession, she took a business course at the Duffus School of Business and was later employed with the London and Western Trust Company, as well as with the British Properties as a private secretary. Scott later worked as a payroll clerk for the Municipality of West Vancouver until her retirement in 1963.

        After her retirement, Scott refocused her interest in the arts by studying photography. She was an active member of the Vancouver Pacific Camera Club which included professional members. While photography became her main focus, in 1982 Scott wrote a book titled "Porridge and Old Clothes," This work documents Scott's early life in Vancouver, and the lives of her ancestors who were Scots from the Lowlands who settled in Manitoba in the early 1880s.
