Notice biographique

Dr. Grace Workman Scott, graduated from biology at the University of Toronto with her B.A. in 1936, her M.A. in 1939 and her Ph.D. in 1943. From 1936 to 1949 she also held various positions within the University as a demonstrator and lecturer. After leaving the university and her research for over a decade, she returned in 1962 to become the associate of Dr. Kenneth Fisher, a well known biologist and respected for his research in mammalian hibernation. After his death in 1970, Scott continued to publish their work based on their research together during the previous decade. Grace Workman Scott died in Toronto on 16 July 2007 in her 94th year.

Portée et contenu

Records in this accession document Scott's research and publishing activities on hibernation mainly in the 1970s and after Dr. Fisher's death in 1970. Although these records were created by Scott, they represent a continuation of records found in the Fisher Personal Records (Accessions B84-0032, B86-0012 and B86-0035) in so much as they document the results of research undertaken while Dr. Fisher was still alive.

There is also some documentation on Scott's early research mainly relating to her Ph.D. work on frogs' and tadpoles' behaviour with respect to temperature.

Finally there are a few files on the Hibernation Information Exchange, a research group set up largely by Dr. Fisher.
