Biography (ca. 1921):

At the age of 25 he began working for Bausch and Lomb, designing and building microscopes. At the age of 30 he came intrigued with the field of Optometry. he began working on the design for a microscope that could study the eye in his spare time. In 1920 his cousin told him of an invention called the lie detector when he was 33. The technology interested him and he immediately had his cousin buy him a prototype, and send it to him. In 1920 he also finished his design for what he called the Jameson Binocular Corneal Microscope which he sold to Bausch and Lomb for $35,000 (modern equivalent of about $500,000), quitting his job at Bausch and Lomb. The microscope would not be manufactured and sold until 1922, when it was renamed the Bausch & Lomb Binocular Corneal Microscope.

In 1921 he began testing the lie detector on associates, and also began using his Jameson Microscope to study the eye. He found that pupil dilation was also an accurate measure of lying and combined this with the the lie detection instrument. He found that this greatly improved the accuracy of the test. He saw the value of this tool and contacted the Police force offering his services, so he began training police to use the lie detector for a fee. He would accompany them by observing the changes in the pupil on his Jameson Microscope as the questions were being asked. This part of the procedure was too much of an art to teach Police, so he frequently comes in to assist investigators for a fee.
