Abstract

United States Senator from Indiana, James E. Watson was photographed by Bretzman in 1930 for the Republican State Committee. He was born in Winchester, Indiana in 1864. A Republican, he was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1894 and served six terms. In 1916 he was elected to the U.S. Senate and served there until 1932 when he was unseated in the Democratic landslide. He remained active in the Washington political scene until his death in 1938 at age 83.This image is a preservation copy made from an unstable original nitrate negative. The damage to the image is caused by the deterioration of the negative. The image is part of Series III
