Biographical history

George Scott Belton was born in MacGregor, Manitoba in 1904 and attended United College in Winnipeg in the 1920s. Belton began his career in education in 1930 as a teacher at Mather School in Mather, Manitoba, where he taught until 1931. Belton married his wife, Edythe Anna Duncan, in 1933, later having their daughter Sheila. From 1936 until his death in 1967, Belton was the principal at schools in Arden, Minto, Carberry, Gilbert Plains, Foxwarren and Winnipeg. Belton wrote a history of Foxwarren School in Foxwarren, Manitoba for which the Manitoba Historical Society awarded him the Maragaret McWilliams Award in 1955.

Custodial history

The fonds was created by George Scott Belton and later came into the possession of his daughter Sheila Dresen. Dresen donated it to the University of Winnipeg Archives in June 2016.
