    Scope and content

    Fonds consists of records created and accumulated by Ian Scott during his political and legal career. The records document Scott's political and legal career during the time he served as Liberal MPP for the St. David (1985-1987) and St. George-St. David (1987-1990) ridings.

    Records include: annotated copies of Scott's speeches and notes of remarks (1985-1990), election materials (1981-1990) including a diary/memoir manuscript by Scott of his 1985 campaign, some material related to Liberal Party fund-raising, and Scott's Queen's Park Reports (1985-1990). Records also consist of records related to his research on legal cases at the time he served as Attorney General, particularly, research material and handwritten notes on cases pertaining to the Ontario Energy Board. In addition, records contain personal papers including biographical information, correspondence and condolences on the death of his parents in 1989. A number of photographs pertaining to his fundraising and election campaigns are also part of this fonds.
