Archibald Lampman's literary executor and friend, Duncan Campbell Scott, spent nearly half a century promoting Lampman's literary reputation. Scott's literary and personal friendship with Lampman involved, during Lampman's lifetime, finding patrons, and, after his death, both publishing and editing his poems and undertaking biographical work. In carrying out these tasks, Scott honoured his deep friendship with Lampman, and acknowledged the enduring appeal of his poetry.
