Julian Lewis "Wattie" Watkins
Birth: Jan. 19, 1895
Indianapolis
Marion County
Indiana, USA
Death: Dec. 30, 1980
California, USA

Julian's mother Georgia died when he was only 2 1/2. His maternal grandmother, Sarah Jane (Tedrow) Lewis took care of him until he went to live with his uncle Ransome Tedrow Lewis in Elmira, NY. Overhearing his aunt complain about supporting him, he left school in eighth or ninth grade to go to work.

He had several jobs including selling cars, but by the time he married in 1921 he had begun working in advertising as a copy writer. He spent his entire career as an ad man, rising to be an account executive for a number of large Advertising Agency's across the country.

Dear Gramp, How I thank you for those photos your grandmother Lewis kept, identified, and passed on to you so that you would know who your family was, and then you passed on to me. I just wish I had asked more questions about our family before you died....(Read more)
