The Tenth Annual Lionel Bernard Scott Lecture

The Lionel Bernard Scott memorial lecture honours the memory of L.B. Scott or Brother Bo, a St. Maarten builder, businessman, politician and statesman, who dedicated his life towards the improvement of himself, his family, his people and his island.

In recognition of his many merits in the social and political fields he was distinguished in the order of Oranje-Nassau. St. Maarten paid homage to her great son of the soil by naming a main street in the Cul-de –sac after him. The postal services of the Netherlands Antilles commemorated the birth day of L.B. Scott by the issuance of a special postage stamp in January 1974, eight years after his passing.
