Duncan Campbell Scott Award (722200302232)
TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR A NON-ENDOWED FUND
TITLE OF NON-ENDOWED FUND
This award was created in honour of Duncan Campbell Scott (1862-1947), one of the leading figures in Canada's first literary school, the Confederation Group of writers. Born in Ottawa, where he lived his life, Scott was an important and influential writer of poetry, fiction, and essays, both nationally and internationally. Scott's short story cycle In the Village of Viger (1896) was the seminal work in a genre that has come to distinguish the short story in Canada. A shaping influence for decades in the cultural life of the capital and country--he helped found the Ottawa Little Theatre and served as President of the Royal Society of Canada--Duncan Campbell Scott was also an accomplished amateur pianist, giving concerts that listeners said would have passed professionally.
