Kerr Scott’s roots were in a dairy farm in the middle of the state. Scott was influenced by the passage of a referendum to finance the first school in the area – a measure that passed by one vote cast by an ex slave. His father, Farmer Bob, was heavily influenced by politics, especially the Farmer’s Alliance movement that began in Texas.
