Scott A. Foster

Scott Foster was the driving force behind the creation of Denfeld High School, and served as its first principal.

In 1904, Foster was hired as principle at Irving Elementary School. He pushed for a high school to be opened there, and succeeded when the Duluth Industrial High School opened in 1905.

In1915, the Duluth Industrial High School moved into a new building on Central Avenue, and was renamed Denfeld High School. Foster stayed on as principle for one more year, retiring in 1916.

The graduating class of 1917 wrote that "all organizations have have received his hearty support and the school is entering a bright period of its history through his effort. It is hoped that Denfeld in its successful future will not forget the true friendship Mr. Foster has shown."
