Memorable Manitobans: Albert Edward Scott (1860-1935)
Born at Caistorville, Ontario on 7 October 1860, son of Michael Gavigan Scott (1832-1870) and Lucretia Maria Horning (1835-1916), brother of Robert H. Scott, he came to Winnipeg in 1892 as the local representative for Long Brothers, a Montreal-based confectioner. Five years later, he partnered with Charles J. Peter in the commission merchant firm of Scott, Peter and Company. In 1903, he dissolved the partnership and founded the firm of Scott-Bathgate Limited with James L. Bathgate. He served as as its President from 1912 to retirement in 1932. He and wife Emma Scott (?-1952) had a daughter, Eleanor Mary Scott (1911-1999). He was a member of Augustine United Church, Masons, Motor Country Club, Southwood Golf Club, and Winnipeg Golf Club. He died at his Winnipeg home, 359 Wellington Crescent, on 19 June 1935 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
