Leslie M. Scott (February 18, 1878 – December 18, 1968)[1][2] was an American historian, newspaper publisher and Republican politician in Oregon. He served as Oregon State Treasurer from 1941-1949.[3] He served as acting Governor of Oregon for a period in 1948.[4] He was also president of the Portland, Oregon Chamber of Commerce.[5]

He served as chairman of the Oregon Historical Quarterly and served more than 40 years on the board of the Oregon Historical Society.[6]

Scott and his father, Oregonian editor Harvey W. Scott, compiled the six-volume A History of the Oregon Country.[7] Leslie Scott served on the board of The Oregonian starting in 1939.[8] In 1940, he was elected as a Republican to the office of State Treasurer, taking office on January 6, 1941.[9] Scott won re-election to a second four-year term in 1944, and then left office on January 3, 1949.[9]

His house in Portland, the Leslie M. Scott House, built circa 1910, is on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).[10] The NRHP-listed Coleman-Scott House is also associated with Scott.[6]
