Frederick Scott is among those individuals who forever changed Johns Hopkins University. A native of Baltimore, Mr. Scott graduated from Douglass High School and applied to Johns Hopkins University on a dare from his friends who believed he would be rejected on the basis of his race.
During his time at Hopkins, Mr. Scott was involved in a range of organizations both on campus and in the community of Baltimore. As one of the founding fathers of Beta Sigma Tau, the first interracial fraternity in Baltimore, Mr. Scott sought to incorporate members from Loyola College, Morgan State University and Johns Hopkins in an organization that precluded race as a basis of collectivity and fraternity.
Mr. Scott also participated in activities with the YMCA, student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and JHU's Honor Commission. Today, his legacy continues to inspire students, faculty and staff through the eponymous Frederick Scott Brigade.
