The deceac-d lived in Eugene for a
number ot vnrs for tho purpose of
educating hi h children, and formerly
owned the land which Is now known
as Scott's aUI it Inn to the city of Eu
gene, liM'atcil in the south-eastern por
tion of the city.
The succfHH or tne university or
Oregon Is'Iiik located n Eugene, Is
greatly due to the efl'01 ts and liberality
of Mr. Scott. Ho was a firm friend to
higher education, as well as to the
public, school rvslem. He was one of
the member) of the Union University
AssiM'iatlon appointed to solicit funds
for the purcli ae of land imkui which
toliK-ate the University of Oregon and
also lo erect t tie building now know n"
as Deadv Hall. It might be well to
slate here that Lane county, by the
act of location llie University In l'.u
geue, was coin MIK'd to furnish a site
for tho University and lo place thereon
and furnish a bulMing to be of not less
value than toO.tHIO. It will be seen at
once the herculean task imposed upon
Eugene, which at that time, 1N.J, did
not contain a imputation of over 1200.
Of course tho other member of the
manaipersof the Association are also
entitled lo like credit. But Wm J J
Scott was one of the hardest workers
of the Board, nml undoubtedly spent
the most tlmu (if any one Interested In
the Institution, When the time came
for the accepting of the building by
the Slate, there was Is'twecn f,',0m) and
