Editor's Note: Scott's obituary in the Atlanta Daily World describes his postwar career as follows:
"After the war, he returned to Atlanta and completed his education at Morehouse. He began his married life with Marian, and in 1948 became circulation manager at the Atlanta Daily World. During the years, Scott covered many events of historical significance occurring in this area, sometimes as the lone African American walking into a Southern hamlet to investigate a lynching. In 1984, he became publications and advertising manager, a post he held until his death."
