Harriet Scott Taylor, known to all as “Scotty,” passed away unexpectedly at age 82 on Saturday August 27, 2016. She was born on October 30, 1933 in Baltimore, MD to Nicholas and Evelyn Scott. She married John Allan Taylor on June 4, 1960 in Greenwich, CT. Scotty and her husband John moved to Wilton in 1967 and raised their three children here.
Scotty’s involvement in the Wilton community centered around her work at the Wilton Historical Society and Wilton Library History Room. Among her contributions at the Historical Society that were meaningful to her were her organization of the educational programs for the 2nd and 4th grade students in the Wilton schools, and her cataloging of the Walt Smith Tool Collection. In the Library History Room, she enjoyed assisting visitors, including Girl Scouts and high school students, in researching a variety of questions about local history. Through these two endeavors she developed a deep love for and extensive knowledge of Wilton history, and she loved sharing her knowledge with any and all.
