In Memory of Emeritus Professor Steven D. Scott

 

 

STEVE SCOTT (1941 – 2019)     

It is with exceptional sadness that the Department has to report that Steve passed away surrounded by family, peacefully and without pain on the morning of June 11th.

Steve will forever be remembered for his passionate commitments to science, students, teaching, collaborators, colleagues and family. He will always be remembered for the exceptional research of himself and his research group on seafloor “black smokers”, and their sulphide products, on on-land volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits and in the field of experimental geochemistry. He gave and supported, financially and scientifically, truly incredible research opportunities for at least 13 postdoctoral fellows, 24 Ph.D. students, 20 Master’s students and 26 Bachelor’s students. Thus he helped 83 people and more.

The quality of the research published (e.g. >318 refereed journal and conference publications) and the hard working quality of his students, post-docs and research associates brought great profile to the Department of Geology/Earth Sciences and to the University of Toronto. Steve was also a passionate and greatly respected Canadian, as his many honours show.

The Department extends its heartfelt condolences to Joan, Donald, Susan and his wider family; all his students, collaborators, friends and colleagues from around the world; and everyone who knew him. He was very special.

There will be a celebration of Steve’s life at the University of Toronto Faculty Club, #41 Willcocks Street on Saturday, September 14th. from 3:00 p.m.
