Edwin Scott

[Baha’i World, Volume 5, p. 418]

The passing of Mr. Edwin Scott, for many years a loyal and active member of the Bahá’í Cause, was deeply felt by the friends with whom he had spent long years in loving, active service in Paris. In 1911 when Abdu’l-Baha visited Paris He spoke several times in the studio of Mr. and Mrs. Scott and to this day that studio continues to be the Bahá’í center where Mrs. Scott welcomes the Bahá’í friends, whether tourists or residents of Paris, with the same beautiful courtesy, finding thus her greatest source of joy and consolation since the loss of her husband.

Because of his recognized ability as an artist Mr. Scott was made Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur and he was a distinguished member of la Societe National des Beaux Arts. Five of his paintings were purchased by the French government and after his demise one of his works was hung in the Salle du Jeu de Paume, in the Museum of State in Paris, a distinction much sought after by painters. The Bahá’í Cause has suffered a grievous loss through the passing of Mr. Edwin
