By the end of the nineteenth century, rhetoric had not yet been established as a legitimate discipline. Fred Newton Scott (1860-1931) spent his life broadening the scope of rhetoric studies through his imaginative, interdisciplinary research. Scott was both a pragmatic reformer and a visionary scholar who used empirical methods and cognitive psychology to expand this field. In this study, Donald Stewart and his wife Patricia examine Scott's essays, speeches, and books to write the first comprehensive biography of the man who became one of the most influential figures in language studies during the early twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book's insights demonstrate how much we can learn from learn from detailed, extended accounts constructed by scholars long immersed in their inquiry. . . . Model scholarship toward which historians ought to aspire. It is the product of considerable research, immersion in primary materials, and considered judgment born of long familiarity with both Scott and the larger professional context."
--Composition Studies
"It is impossible to write the story of English without dealing with Scott's considerable influence. . . . [this biography] will easily become a standard work in the field, must reading for anyone exploring the century-long tradition of college writing instruction."
--John Brereton, University of Massachusetts, Boston
