William Reginald Watson

William R. Watson of Palisades Park, Leonia, and Mantoloking [Aug. 19, 1929 —Oct. 3, 2011] was a graduate of Syracuse University 1951, Phi Kappa Alpha Honorary Society, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, President of Men’s Student Government.

A visionary who pioneered travel for prominent institutions and renowned non-profit organizations for over 3 decades as President of Raymond & Whitcomb, Co. [NY] “First in Travel Since 1879,” Bill continued the legacy of many “firsts in travel”; to circumvent the African Coast and South America, safari in Tanzania and Kenya, cruise the Caribbean and Patagonia, was instrumental in the revival of The Orient Express, created hundreds of original itineraries to previously inaccessible regions of the world that many in the industry would emulate.

Bill never hesitated to push beyond his comfort zone defining travel in his own words; “Change is inherent in life, the essence of travel. Travel is change in people, places, what happens en route, while there and with whom, dealing with new relationships and differences.” He lived the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail.”

Since childhood, Bill spent every summer at the Jersey Shore. He could be found each day jogging on the beaches of Mantoloking greeting all he met. He was an avid skier, runner, artist, and reader, driven by his insatiable curiosity. Bill, your spirit inspires us every day!

We all miss you! Remembrances and shared travel memories to
