Monuments to Cleveland women: Jane Scott
This is the fifth and final installment of our weeklong series highlighting monuments to Cleveland women.
Today's monument: Jane Scott (1919-2011)
Who she was: Renowned rock critic for the Plain Dealer, notable both for her gender — she was the first major female rock critic — and her age.
- She was known as both the "world's oldest rock critic" and "world's oldest teenager" until her retirement in 2002.
The details: The bronze statue of Scott, complete with her trademark red glasses, was unveiled at the Rock Hall in 2012.
- Seated and with notepad in hand, Scott appears ready to conduct her next interview.
- The statue's permanent home is the Rock Hall's Library and Archives at Tri-C.
Of note: If the statue recalls that of Stephanie Tubbs Jones, it may be because both were created by local artist (and former president of the Cleveland Institute of Art) David Deming.
