Feb. 7, 1949 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Dr. Angelo C. Scott, 91, one of the founders of Oklahoma City, died here early yesterday. Dr. Scott spent his childhood in Carlyle and Iola. He was the son of John W. Scott, president of the Iola Town Company, and the brother of Charles F. Scott, who was publisher of the Register from 1882 to his death in 1938. Dr. Scott was chairman of the first town meeting in Oklahoma City and publisher of the first newspaper printed in Oklahoma City. A teacher and scholar, Dr. Scott served as president of Oklahoma A & M. College in Stillwater from 1899 to 1908. He was professor of English and literature at Oklahoma City College until he retired. He founded the Oklahoma Institute of Arts and Sciences.
The Elks lodge has taken over the veterans club location over Heigeles Harness Shop on South Street for temporary quarters. The club offered right after the fire to turn over their lease to the Elks, sell their furniture at cost and just go out of business as a club. That offer was accepted yesterday after other possible temporary locations had been investigated and found less desirable than the South Street location.
