Biography

Bob Scarr entered the University of British Columbia in 1947 and successfully vied for one of the spots on the school’s basketball team. The squad won the Canadian national championship that year and was thus selected to form the core of the country’s delegation to the 1948 Summer Olympics. The team, which had finished third in their conference against an otherwise all-American league, did not reach the quarter-finals and placed ninth during the classification rounds at the Games. After graduation Scarr retired to private life as an accountant and had a family of six children, living quietly until his death in 2001 at the age of 74.
