James F. Didusch (1890 - 1955) was a medical illustrator in the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine, Johns Hopkins. He was the main illustrator for the Carnegie Institute of Embryology (1913-1955) with many of his drawings and plates forming the main visual component of many Carnegie publications. There was a 1992 article on his artistic contribution to embryology:[1]

"Didusch was the first student of Max Brödel in the Department of Art As Applied to Medicine at Johns Hopkins University from 1911 to 1913. When the Carnegie Institute of Embryology was established at Johns Hopkins in 1913, Didusch was appointed as its illustrator. He remained the Carnegie Illustrator until his death in 1955."

His papers are held in the Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives at Johns Hopkins.
