James G. Watson
Through the establishment of a permanent endowment fund, the family of one of TU's most celebrated faculty members has ensured his legacy will live on. The James G. Watson Professorship in English will stand as a lasting tribute to Dr. Watson's scholarly achievements, devotion to teaching, and service to his academic community. "Jim loved TU," says Ann Watson, Jim's wife of 47 years. "I know Jim must be smiling knowing that, now, he will forever be a part of the Department of English." Children Julie and Bill (BA '86) Watson, and Cyndee and Rick (BA '87 MA '89) Watson joined Ann in establishing this faculty fund.
