Harry Howard Watts

Harry Howard Watts was born May 9, 1871, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he remained until he attained his majority.  He attended the public schools in Ann Arbor, and was graduated from the Ann Arbor High School, after which he entered the University of Michigan.

     He spent a year in the literary department, and a year and a half in the medical department under the tutelage of Dr. Fleming Carrow, who occupies the chair of opthamology in the university.

     After emerging from the university, he identified himself with a prominent optical firm in Minneapolis, where he remained for four years.

     He came to Kansas City in 1896, and was for four yeas with a local optical firm.  In 1900 he started in business for himself, and has done more than well.

     Mr. Watts is a Mason, and has also been honored with the members of his profession with an election to the position of vice-president of the Missouri Optical Association.
