Donald M. Scott

by A. K. Hoagland.

Donald M. Scott seems to have been a civil engineer who briefly worked as an architect.


Polk’s Directory (1901), p. 347.

Donald M. Scott (1862-?) was born in Scotland and immigrated to the Copper Country as an adult. He advertised in the 1901-02 Polk’s Directory as a “civil engineer and architect” and lived in Laurium with his wife and three children. The Scotts seem to have left the area by 1905, but they returned by 1910 when Donald worked as a civil engineer for the village of Laurium. Within six years he had left the area again.1
