James Watson (b.1928), American biochemist and co-discoverer of the structure of DNA. Watson entered the University of Chicago at the age of 15, graduated at 19 and was awarded his PhD at the age of 22. Working in Copenhagen, he became intrigued by genes and DNA, moving to the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, in 1951. In 1953, Watson published a structure for DNA with Francis Crick, for which they and Maurice Wilkins shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology. Watson went to Harvard in 1955, teaching there until 1968. He then became director of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a post he held until 1992. Photo taken in 1992.
