  • Notes 
    • James graduated from St. Louis Country Day School (MICDS) and Washington University. After college, he joined the United States Navy attaining the rank of LTJG and served in World War II as Captain of an LCI in the Pacific.

      After the war and his discharge from the Navy, he began working at the family business, LewisHowe Co, whose principal product was Tums, and after serving as the President and Chairman of the Board for many years, he retired in the 1980's.

      He was devoted to his elementary school, Rossman School, having served on the Board and Advisory Board for decades. He was involved in the pivotal decision to move the school from the then Delmar campus to Conway Road in the early 1960's and the fundraising to do so. In furtherance of his interest in education, he was also on the board of St. Louis Country Day School.

      He also served on the boards of many civic and community organizations such as the United Way Allocation Committee, as a past President of the Consolidated Neighborhood Services, Inc, the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Association, and he was a past President of the Missouri Historical Society. Over the years, he and his wife have traveled all over the world and, when not at their Florida home, they would enjoy spending a portion of the spring and fall with family and friends in St. Louis and in the summer in Harbor Springs, Michigan.
