Collection Description & Creator Information
Consists of papers of Scott relating primarily to his mission as a military member of the Special Diplomatic Commission headed by Elihu Root, which was sent to Russia by Woodrow Wilson in 1917 to encourage the Russian people to continue participation in World War I and to assure them of American aid. Included are reports to the secretary of state on railroads, munitions, and industry, a transcript of Scott's conference with General Manikovsky, and various speeches, propaganda releases, correspondence, and other documents regarding the Commission.
In addition, there are seven scrapbooks (1891-1923?) of newspaper clippings, memorabilia, and a few photographs compiled by Scott and related to his military career and his service as superintendent of West Point (1906-1910).
