Col. Scott to Lecture on West Point

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Col. Hugh Lenox Scott, superintendent of the United States Military Academy, will deliver a lecture on "West Point" in the Living Room of the Union tomorrow evening at 8 o'clock.

After graduating from West Point in 1876, Col. Scott held various commissioned offices in the cavalry service of the United States army, and at the opening of the Spanish war had attained the rank of adjutant-general. During the governorship of Maj. General Leonard Wood in Cuba, Colonel Scott served as chief of staff, and in 1903 he went to the Philippines to become governor of the Sulu Archipelago. While holding this position he was seriously wounded by natives of the islands. Between the time of his graduation from West Point and the opening of the Spanish War, he held many positions of responsibility among the American Indians of the Western States, and from the knowledge of the Indians acquired during this time, he has written several monographs and reports. On returning from the Phillipines in 1907, he received the appointment as superintendent of the United States Military Academy with the rank of colonel.
