Robert Falcon Scott, CVO, RN (1868 - 1912) was the third child of six and elder son of John Edward and Hannah (née Cuming) Scott of Stoke Damerel, near Devonport. He was a Royal Navy officer and explorer who led two expeditions to the Antarctic regions: the Discovery Expedition, 1901-04, and the ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition, 1910-13. On the first expedition, he discovered the Polar Plateau, on which the South Pole is located. During the second venture, Scott led a party of five that reached the South Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that they had been preceded by Roald Amundsen's Norwegian expedition. The final and chief event for the Devonian Association in 1911 was a complementary dinner for Captain Scott who was its Vice President. This entry in the Year Book records the names of those who attended as well as those Association members who subscribed to Scott's famous expedition. The account of the dinner that appeared in the Year Book was taken from The Illustrated Western Weekly News of June 25, 1911.
