2010 JUDITH LEDGER, THIS ONE'S FOR YOU AND OTHER HHS ALUMNI AND THE HHS NAME CHANGE
Ms. Judith Mazilli Ledger wrote in my guest book, asking if anyone knows where the "Watson" name in Hamilton High originated:
Regarding your 12/'28 guest book query as to the origin of HHS-Watson, and where that appendage came from:
I would assume it is named for "Pop" Watson, a truant officer during my years at HHS.
I am receiving numerous emails offering tee shirts, caps etc. with Hamilton High "Watson-West." I am an alumnus of Hamilton High before the name change, and prefer to remain so. No disrespect meant to the late Pop Watson, nor those Hornets who are alumni from "West."
