Scot W. Myers ’85

Scot W. Myers (Dec 4, 1962 – Nov 14, 2022) passed away in Oviedo, Florida after a long battle with kidney disease.

He was an English major at Davidson College who grew up in Trenton, NJ. He graduated in 1986 but he always considered the class of ’85 his cohort. He frequently wrote for The Davidsonian and the college literary journal Hobart Park. He also did extensive work with the Theater department. He was widely recognized in school for his writing and his favorite author was Edgar Allan Poe.

He did all of his writing on a Kaypro II computer with only two floppy drives and a dot-matrix printer. He taught himself computer programming and used a 300 baud modem to connect to the Delphi dial-up network long before the Internet was born.

After Davidson, he went on to have a successful career as a writer for TV and film and now he has left behind innumerable friends whose lives he enriched with his generosity and his humanity.
