William Berryman Scott (1858-1947)

American mammal paleontologist. Scott worked closely with Osborn as an undergraduate and later a professor at Princeton, staying after Osborn moved to New York. Scott's monumental series of monographs on White River Group mammals (e.g., from the Big Badlands) brought together a large body of scattered literature. Like Osborn, Scott advocated anti-Darwinian evolutionary theories such as orthogenesis.
