Scott Family Endowment

York University was the beneficiary of an endowment of $1 million from the Scott family which was matched by York University, creating a $2 million dollar endowment to establish the W.P. Scott Chair in E-Librarianship at York University Libraries in perpetuity. The Chair will honour the memory and contributions of William Pearson Scott who was a member of York University’s First Board of Governors in December 1959 and served as the Board’s Chairman January 1966 through June 1971.
