  • Notes 
    • Medical officer on the rubber and tin estates of Malaya.

      Unable to locate marriage record in Scotland. There is a marriage announcement in the Arbroath Herald, July 7, 1911. Marriage location in the announcement is PENAUG. Is this in Malaysia?

      From http://www.internationalstory.gla.ac.uk/person/?id=WH21844:
      George Waugh Scott graduated MB from the University in 1907 and MD in 1920 with his thesis A study of malaria and measures for its abatement amongst rubber estate workers in the Federated Malay States.
      Scott was medical officer in the Kamuning, Heawood, Changhat Salak, and other Estates Hospitals Association. He worked from 1908 to 1936 in Malaysia, where he specialised in Tropical Medicine and epidemiology, and set up a practice at Sungai Siput.
      Scott returned to the UK in 1936 and practiced at Malvern Link. In 1937 he was awarded an MBE ‘for services in the Federated Malay States'.
      During the Second World War, Scott organised the Malvern first-aid post in 1939 in the capacity as an unpaid volunteer like his staff.
      As well as being on the council and as president of the Malaya Branch of the British Medical Association, Scott was chairman-elect of the Worcester and Bromsgrove Branch and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine.
