Among the more famous teachers at Doyle College was Prof. Edward Lee Scott. AM LLD, AM (Richmond College) 1884, Latin, English. He was born 24 Oct 1864 De Soto Parish, LA died 10 Dec 1954 buried Roselawn Memorial Park Cemetery and Mausoleum, E. Baton Rouge Parish, LA, son of Robert Hamilton and Cornelia Gregg Hall Scott. He taught at LSU for 36 years. He joined the faculty in 1891 and retired in 1927. Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, professor of Latin and Greek, registrar from 1918 to 1927. Professor of Modern Languages in the Louisiana State University, Agricultural and Mechanical College (Baton Rouge). After a three years course in Richmond College, VA, Prof. Scott received the M.A. degree in 1884; the following year was spent at Hanover Academy, VA, as Instructor in Greek and German. In 1886-87 he was Instructor in Latin, French and German at Doyle, and for three years thereafter, Professor of Modern Languages at Ruston College, LA. His work at Doyle College placed a high standard for teachers that later came to Doyle. Known writers from the school were E. G. Rogers, Monroe Seals and Lela Blankenship. September marks a full year of research on Doyle College. I appreciate the efforts by others in gathering information about the school.
I thank SpartaLive for postings my short articles during this time. As the research project ends, now comes putting all the information into book form. If anyone comes across additional information, you can contact me at (931) 946-2951.
