Biographical history

R. W. "Dick" Scott is a prominent member of the forest products industry in British Columbia. In the 1960s he founded the Vancouver firm of Barnett Lumber Industries Ltd. that was involved in logging, manufacturing, wholesaling, and world export. He later founded R.W. Scott Industries, Pac-Deck Sales Ltd., and Scott Forest Products Ltd. His lumber interests led him into the membership of the International Concatenated Order of Hoo-Hoo that was devoted to the interests of the lumber industry and to promoting the use of forest products. He was initiated in the Vancouver Hoo-Hoo Club in 1951 and became President of the Club in 1955 and the International Order in 1959. As President, he initiated an international wood promotion campaign in 1960. He has continued his involvement in the organization.
