Author Bio for Watt, Francis

Francis Watt was a well-liked barrister at the Temple, London. He was born on September 20, 1849 at Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland, where his father was Provost, and died on October 4, 1927 at Herne Hill, South London at the age of 78. He graduated from the University of Edinburgh, studied at Heidelberg, knew and liked classical languages as well as German, French, and Italian. He became a barrister in 1886 and a member of the Middle Temple in 1898. He was a better tutor and librarian than an advocate. A friend of Robert Louis Stevenson, he wrote a biography “RLS” of him. He also wrote books on the law and Scotch history as well as newspaper articles on various subjects.
