Duncan Campbell Scott


Duncan Campbell Scott authored numerous volumes of poetry, short fiction, and essays—most notably Village of Viger (1896, 1945) and The Circle of Affection (1947).

On a less than noble note, Duncan Campbell Scott was also the man the Governor General chose in 1905 to negotiate with Natives of northern Ontario what became the notorious James Bay Treaty—Number Nine. John Flood explores this historic encounter through poetry in The Land They Occupied (1976), and later edits and publishes Untitled Novel, ca. 1905 which Scott had authored just prior to his notorious dealings on behalf of the Dominion of Canada.
