I am the James D. Watson Archivist at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Library & Archives. In addition to working on Dr. Watson's collection, I also manage the digitization of both Watson's and Sydney Brenner's collections as part of the Wellcome Library’s "Codebreakers: Makers of Modern Genetics" project.
