1915 Obituary [4].

WE regret to have to record the fact that Mr. C. C. Scott died at his home in Largs, Ayrshire, last Thursday week. Mr. Scott was in his forty-eighth year, and was the eldest son of the late Mr. John Scott, C.B. The Scott family, through its firm, now known as Scott's Shipbuilding and Engineering Company, Limited, of Greenock, has long been associated with the Clyde shipbuilding industry. The late Mr. Scott was the head of the sixth generation of shipbuilders, so that the family connection with the industry has now extended over the best part of two centuries. After an education at Fettes College and Edinburgh University, and after serving the usual apprenticeship, Mr. Scott was appointed in 1890 assistant engine works manager at Greenock. In 1900, when the firm became a limited liability company, he was made assistant general manager. In 1903, on the death of his father, he became a managing director, and in 1905, on the death of his uncle, Mr. R. S. Scott, he was appointed to the chairmanship of the company. He was a member of the Institution of Naval Architects, of the Institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders in Scotland and of the British Corporation Committee and was a past-president of the Clyde Shipbuilders' Association and of the North-West Engineering Trades Employers' Association.
