He attended Baltimore Polytechnic and John Hopkins University, graduating in 1929. He worked as a curator at the Maryland Academy of Science observatory and as a director at the Davis Planetarium, where he worked for twenty-five years. Watson introduced hundreds of thousands of children, their parents, and teachers through lectures and demonstrations. He was interested in deep-sky objects--Galaxies, Ring Nebula, Orion Nebula, and he calculated the academy's annual Graphic Time Table for three months each year. See the Watson telescope.
