Biographical history

S.D. Scott was born in Westbrook, Nova Scotia where he lived on a farm until beginning his apprenticeship as a ship's blacksmith. He attended Dalhousie University for a year, but he was forced to return to work periodically as a blacksmith while also working on the college paper. In 1876 Scott completed his M.A. and became editor of the Sackville Post. He edited newspapers in Halifax and St. John for 25 years. In 1909 Scott came to Vancouver to work until 1917 on the News-Advertiser.
