Barbara Ann Scott's memorabilia coming "home"
The article linked below appeared in the Ottawa Citizen on February 7th. An arrangement has been worked out between the City of Ottawa Archives and Barbara Ann to accept her extensive collection of skating memorabilia. A display is expected to be mounted in City Hall later this year.
Can't skate but love to watch
Had the great privledge of meeting this legendary lady at 2006 Cdns in Ottawa and she was so lovely and patient w/me. You see, once I was in front of Mrs. Scott-King, I suddenly lost command of the spoken form of English for about a minute, as it hit me just *who* I was meeting right then.
Not my proudest moment...
Glad to hear her incredable collection will coming "home" and have what sounds like a permemant and proper home to show it off at. A few years ago on the series the CBC did called Life and Times, they did an episode on Barbera Ann and the stuff she had on display in her home was just amazing!!
Glad to hear more people will be able to see it and appreciate it.
