PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART PRESIDENT ROBERT MONTGOMERY SCOTT TO BE
 HONORED WITH LOGAN SQUARE EAST'S OLDER AMERICAN AWARD MONDAY
 Robert Montgomery Scott, president of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, is being honored at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 18, at Logan Square East, 2 Franklintown Blvd., Philadelphia, where he will receive the 8th Annual Older American Award.
 Born into a prestigious Main Line family, Scott has used his influence to benefit the community. He is being honored for his contribution to the arts, his independence, and for the example he sets for older Americans now and in the future.
 Born in 1929 to Edgar and Hope Montgomery Scott, Scott is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
 Katharine Hepburn portrayed his mother in the 1939 film, "The Philadelphia Story," for whom her character, an enchanting Main Line debutante, was modeled after.
 The Older American Award was created by Logan Square East residents as a way to bring attention to the achievements of senior citizens who are active in the community and devoted to making the city a better place for all. Former award winners include activist Max Weiner and Gray Panthers founder Maggie Kuhn.
 An avid cyclist, Scott is a former partner in the law firm of Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoads. He served as an officer of the Foreign Service where his position was special assistant to the ambassador to the United Kingdom. And from 1979 to 1983 he served as honorary British consul in Philadelphia. Scott's accomplishments are numerous.
 In addition to Scott, Ann Dainoff, a resident of the community, will receive an award for her contribution to life at Logan Square East. Dainoff, a native New Yorker, has served as vice president of the residents association for many years and has raised money for the organization by creating and organizing an annual flea market.
