This piece represents Charles H. Scott, the first principal of what would eventually become Emily Carr University of Art and Design. In 1926, Scott hired Group of Seven members Frederick Varley and Jock MacDonald to teach painting. Both Varley and MacDonald implored Scott to hire Emily Carr as well, but Scott refused. The student body at the time was entirely female, and the teaching staff entirely male.
