Morris Douglas Scott

Doug grew up in Iowa where Uncle Charlie taught him to love the outdoors. He wrote his Ph.D thesis on feral dogs while attending Auburn University. He did research on multiple topics while working at SIU, MSU and the Park Service in Yellowstone.

Because of his love of birds some of his favorite areas of study were the range of White Tailed Ptarmigans in Montana and the comparison of the habits of our Ruffed Grouse with those in other states. He also did progressive work on reclaiming mined lands. He produced over 100 scientific publications and wrote two books on wildlife.

His love of hunting and fishing remained a constant and thanks to it, we were always surrounded by lovable dogs, mostly Brittanys.

He was my best friend and husband for 35 years. I’ll miss him and our talks ranging from over population and its attendant destruction of the planet to the absurdity of politics. He left behind a hole the size of Montana.

Love, always, Suvi
