These commissions for this new edition of the Dictionary of National Biography are a result of Scott’s research and publication on the leading women’s organisation of the British co-operative movement, the Women’s Co-operative Guild. The subjects, although relatively obscure historically, played significant parts: Catherine Webb in the WCG, and in the wider co-operative movement; Selina Ganley, in the WCG and in co-operative and labour politics. Their biographical details, although sketchy, thus have a contribution to an understanding not only of their lives but also of those larger collective projects with which they were associated. These DNB entries evidence Scott’s standing as the leading scholar of the WCG. They are located within a programme of research wherein Scott has produced a number of public outputs in recent years, including papers delivered at University of Victoria’s British Columbia Institute for Co-operative Studies (2006) and the Women's Library, London Metropolitan University (2004).
