Barbara Ann Scott

Barbara Ann Scott, 1939

Canadian figure skater Barbara Ann Scott – born 1928, pictured here at age 11 – was the 1948 Olympic champion, a two-time World champion (1947–1948), and a four-time Canadian national champion (1944–46, 48) in ladies’ singles.

Scott is the only Canadian to have won the Olympic ladies’ singles gold medal, the first North American to have won three major titles in one year and the only Canadian to have won the European Championship (1947–48). During her forties she was rated among the top equestrians in North America. She received many honours and accolades, including being made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1991 and a member of the Order of Ontario in 2008. (Wikipedia)

Karsh photographed Scott on four separate occasions.
