Biography of Walter Scott
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Scott, Walter, began his work for Walter A. Wood by taking the agency for mowing machines in 1867. Two years later he acted as general agent for the machine, traveling throughout the Northeast States, and selling 500 machines in the year 1871. In that year he received a letter from Mr. Wood which he still treasures, engaging him as wholesale agent. This necessitated him traveling to all parts of the globe, the engagement continuing to the present time. Mr. Scott has probably sold more mowers than any other living man. He is of Scotch ancestry, born at Fort Ann, Washington county, in 1839. His father was Henry M. Scott, a farmer. The oldest daughter of Mr. Scott is Helen S. Locke, widow of Norman W. Locke. She is again an inmate of her father's house. Mary H. Scott, aged seventeen, is a student here. Mr. Scott is a Republican but not an active politician; he is also a member of the Baptist church. He was engaged in farming prior to his association with Mr. Wood, whose entire confidence he cherished.
