Robert Scott Vierick
Research Historian Robert Scott Vierick conducts historical, museum, and litigation research. Prior to working at History Associates, Scott was a park guide at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. During his time with the National Park Service, he worked to co-develop the park’s horse and wagon tours as well as a revised tour of historic Charles Town. He also worked as a history interpreter at Mount Vernon, and as an educator with the White House Historical Association, where he helped conduct school programs that focused on the War of 1812 and the Emancipation Proclamation. Scott’s writings have appeared on the Middle East Institute’s Oman Library web page, and a short article he wrote about Harpers Ferry is featured in THE WONDER OF IT ALL: 100 Stories from the National Park Service.
Scott graduated summa cum laude from the College of William and Mary, with a BA in History and Government. The research paper for his history colloquium, “On His Majesty’s Provincial Forces: The Wartime Experiences of the Virginia Regiment and the New England Troops during the French and Indian War,” examined the tensions arising between the British military and colonial soldiers during the years prior to the American Revolution.
