Originally from Scotland, Charles Hepburn Scott graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 1909. He moved to Canada, and became the art supervisor for Calgary schools from 1912 to 1914. He then moved to Vancouver to be the art supervisor at the Vancouver School Board from 1914 until 1925.
As the first director of the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts from 1925 until 1952, Charles H. Scott is one of the most important artists in Vancouver's history. He was instrumental in convincing Jock Macdonald and Fred Varley to come to Vancouver and teach, and saw the school through the depression and the Second World War.
