Lewis Joseph Warner
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 10, 1908
Death: Apr. 4, 1931

Lewis Warner was the only son of Warner Bros. co-founder and long-time studio President Harry Warner.

In the late 1920s, Harry Warner wanted to diversify the Warner Bros. studio, so he purchased a string of music publishers. He established a studio subsidiary called Warner Bros. Music, and put his son, Lewis, in charge of the operation.

While traveling in Cuba in 1931, Lewis Warner began to suffer with an impacted wisdom tooth. By the time he returned to New York, the tooth had become infected. Without antibiotics, the infection spread, and Lewis Warner died of pneumonia on April 5, 1931, at the age of 22.

The following year, the Warners donated a theater in Lewis' honor to Worcester Academy in Worcester, Mass., Lewis' alma mater.

Lewis Warner is buried in the Warner family mausoleum at Home of Peace Memorial Park, along with his father; his mother, Rea E. Warner; his uncle, Morris Levison (Rea's brother); his sister, Doris; and Doris' husband, director Charles Vidor.
