Rev. William Scott (1886-1979) was a missionary to Korea with The Presbyterian Church in Canada, then United Church of Canada. He was born in Lanark, Scotland and moved to Canada in 1906 after responding to an appeal for ministerial candidates from the Presbyterian Church in Canada. After doing some mission work in Brandon, Manitoba, he attended Queen's University, receiving a B.A. in 1911. He later received an M.A. in Political Science from Queens, working on it during a furlough in 1921. He attended the Theological Seminary at Westminster Hall, Vancouver, graduating as an ordained minister in 1914. That same year, he and his wife, Kate Scott (McKee) travelled to Korea. After some time doing evangelistic work, in 1921 Scott was appointed Principal of Eunjin Academy in Yongchung. In 1925, he was appointed principal of the Yung-saing High School in Hamheung. In 1926 Scott became the Chairman of the Canadian Mission Board in Korea. He was repatriated to Canada in 1942 along with other missionaries in Korea, and during his time in Canada worked as a minister at Burford, Bethel and Fairfield United Churches in Ontario. The Scotts returned to Korea in 1946. In 1953 he and others helped to found the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea. Scott retired in 1956, and died in Brantford, Ontario in 1979.
