Recall that a Banach space X is said to have the Schur property if any weakly compact set in X is strongly compact. In this note we consider a Banach algebra A that has a bounded group of generators. Along with other results, it is proved that if A* has the Schur property, then the Gelfand space of the algebra A is a scattered set and, moreover, A* has the Radon-Nikodym property.
