If you mean Woodrow Wilson, I suspect that he wasn't born in Scotland.

Call it a hunch.

Actually I am thinking there was a famous Scott called William Wilson, but I don't know for sure if he was in the right time period. Mt. Wilson of course is famous and well known.

There are lots of William Wilsons; I'm not sure of which one you're thinking.

Also, it's Scot, not Scott.

But named for Benjamin Davis Wilson, second elected mayor of Los Angeles, who was born in Tennessee.

Well, if nothing else, I am getting a history lesson from this. I never knew who Mt. Wilson was named for.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - he might know.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Neither did I.

I (wrongly, as it turns out) assumed that it was named for Woodrow Wilson.
