Biographical history

Margaret Ruttan Boucher (1855-1931) married William Hepburn Scott. He died in 1881 and in 1886 she moved to Winnipeg where she worked as a stenographer in a law office. By 1898 Scott had left her position to work as an urban missionary. She visited female prisoners, supervised the Winnipeg Lodging and Coffee House and visited the poor in their homes. She assisted Rev. C.C. Owen of Holy Trinity Anglican Church with his relief work and organized a facility for assisting wayward girls, and became known as the Margaret Scott Nursing Mission. Medical treatment was on a “pay what you can” basis, often in-kind: garden produce, poultry, a bucket of coal. No one was turned away. Scott never took a salary.
