James Sibley “J.S.” Watson, Jr. (10 Aug 1894 – 31 Mar 1982)

“Born to wealth, Watson was considered by many a Renaissance man in each of his chosen fields: medical doctor and researcher, man of letters, preservationist, philanthropist, and filmmaker. After graduating medical school, Watson bought and published ‘The Dial’ between 1920-29, a literary journal founded by Ralph Waldo Emerson in 1840. By the mid-1920s, he became fascinated with motion pictures and produced a striking series of films, ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ (1927), ‘Tomatos Another Day’ (1930) and ‘The Eyes of Science’ (1931) among others.”
