Scott, Jack L.

Jack L. Scott was born in 1921 and graduated from OSU in 1948 with degrees in architecture and engineering.  According to his obituary, “while there (at OSU), he was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and was one of seven founding members of the OSU “Posse” Club. Prior to graduating, he honorably served in the U.S. Army in Europe, where he was nominated for two Purple Hearts.”

As an architect, Scott became a pioneer in the use of thin-shell concrete in modern architecture, and many of the state’s best designs are his.  In the 1970s, he also had an office in Dallas.  Jack L. Scott died in 2011.
