Margaret Scott: Librarian or Sorority woman…or both?

A sorority acquaintance from Alpha Gamma Delta has asked me to help her find the answer to this conundrum. The crux of it: Is Margaret Brodie Scott the librarian the same as the Margaret Scott from AGD?

The missing link? We know that Margaret Scott (AGD) did undergraduate studies at U of T, we do not know if the Librarian Margaret Scott did.

If you can help us, leave a comment or @ me on Twitter!
