The Cuckoo's Nest
Long-time Ottawa resident Cliff Scott and others have provided the stories below which reflect on the city’s history. Most of the stories were written by Mr. Scott, an Ottawa resident since 1954 and a former history lecturer at the University of Ottawa (UOttawa). He also served in the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Public Service of Canada.
Since 1992, he has been active in the voluntary sector and has held executive positions with The Historical Society of Ottawa, the Friends of the Farm and the Council of Heritage Organizations in Ottawa. He also inaugurated the Historica Heritage Fair in Ottawa and still serves on its organizing committee.
