Born in Ottawa, Scott was an avid figure skater and in 1914 won the Canadian men’s title, as well as the American International Figure Skating event in the men’s, and in the pair discipline with his partner Jean Chevalier. He was the Secretary Treasurer of the Amateur Skating Association of Canada from 1920-1921 and was a board member from 1922-1934. Scott’s presence in the sport expanded as he focused on judging. In 1932 he was the first Canadian judge appointed to the ISU World Figure Skating Championships® in Montreal, Canada. Scott went on to judge many other prestigious events. His image was sculpted onto the original Canadian Championship medal which was used from 1914-1950 at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships. He also had a successful hockey and golf career. He played on the McGill University varsity hockey team in 1911 and in golf he won the Quebec amateur title in 1927 and 1930; just a few of his many victories in other sports.
