This paper is a study of Pennsylvania's Senator Hugh Doggett Scott's position on civil rights as a member of the House of representatives (1941-1957) and the Senate (1958-1965). The purpose of this study is to show that Senator Scott throughout his House and Senate career played an active role in helping pass major civil rights legislation. The civil rights gain during this period of time are often credited only to liberal Democrats. However, Senator Scott and a few of his fellow Republicans also played an important role in seeing these gains come true.
