Sally Scott

Born and raised in Edmonton, Sally falls increasingly in love with this city, enhanced through her work in heritage over the past decade.  She holds two Bachelors of Arts degrees from the University of Alberta; one of these with a specialization in Western Canadian history, focusing on women’s history since the 19th century and the fur trade in the West.

Sally has been deeply involved in public interpretation, cutting her teeth at Fort Edmonton Park as well as the University of Alberta Museums and the Royal Alberta Museum. In recent years, Sally has contributed articles for the Edmonton City as Museum Project, covering topics from Edmonton’s downtown farmers’ market to the first women’s organization at the U of A.
