Dr. Stuart Donald Scott was born 1893 in Connellsville, Pennsylvania. Scott was a well-educated man who never stopped learning. He earned his MD from the Medical College of Virginia in 1919, receiving his license to practice in 1920. By 1923, he was certified by the United States Interior Department as a first aid and mine rescue specialist and was licensed to practice in Kentucky. By the 1930s, Scott had migrated to Gainesville, Florida where he would settle and establish his private practice. Scott then earned post-graduate degrees from George Washington and Temple University medical schools specializing in Ophthalmology, Otology and Laryngology. By the late 1950s, Scott earned proficiency in clinical hypnosis as well. Scott was a well-respected member of the Gainesville community up until his death on 23 February, 1970. He was 77.
