This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A cartoonist noted for whimsy and fantasy and a style with unusual angles and bold ink, Walt Scott had a near 30-year career from 1951 until his death in 1970 creating The Little People, which was a syndicated Sunday newspaper humor page.  The series focused on small, "elfin people who lived in a magical woodland".  In the 1940s, he did the Captain Easy Sunday page and was the ghost cartoonist for Biff Baker. 

Scott was born in Sandusky, Ohio and after graduating from high school, worked as a printer's devil and in his spare time, studied art.  In 1916, he moved to Cleveland, Ohio, searching for work and took newspaper jobs, first in the art department of the Cleveland Press and then for 13 years with the Plain Dealer newspaper.  His work began to get syndicated including a series of strips on the life of Jesus.

In the mid 1930s, he went to work for NEA Syndicate, which was in Cleveland.  Walt Disney hired him away, and Scott spent five years in California as an animator, but returned to Cleveland and NEA in 1943 to draw Captain Easy, replacing Roy Crane.

During World War II, Scott also drew the Biff Baker series for Sunday page syndication, using the names Henry Lee, which Hank Schlensker had been using.

Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Walter Scott is represented in the cartoon collection of the Butler Institute of American Art.  This collection was assembled by Joseph G.Butler III in 1929-1931 and numbers over 300 pieces, from Walt Disney to Dr. Seuss to Windsor McKay.

Little is known about Scott other than his editorial work for the Cleveland Plain Dealer in the 1920's and 30's.
