Biography
John Murray Scott was the eldest son of Dr. John Scott, a physician at Boulogne, and was recommended to Sir Richard Wallace, after Wallace had inherited Lord Hertford's collections, as someone with a knowledge of French who could act as his secretary. After Wallace's death, Scott was the principal adviser to Sir Richard's widow. He was created a Baronet in 1899 for services during the establishment of the Wallace Collection, and he was also a Trustee of the National Gallery in London.
