It is shown that the weakly closed operator algebra generated by an equicontinuous $\sigma$-complete Boolean algebra of projections on a quasi-complete locally convex space consists entirely of scalar-type operators. This extends W. Bade's well-known theorem that the same assertion is valid for Banach spaces; however, the technique of proof here differs from his method, which extends only to metrizable spaces.
