Biography of George F. Watson
Arizona Biographies





GEORGE FRANK WATSON, Recorder of Pinal County, is the son of Alpha J. and Mary E. Holman Watson, and was horn in Clements, California. He has spent the greater part of his life in Arizona, as the family removed here in 1882, when he was quite young, and first located at Gila Bend, in Iaricopa County. For the past twenty five years, however, he has been a resident of Pinal County, where he is now serving his third term as Recorder. Throughout the county Mr. Watson is popular and highly esteemed for his substantial traits or character. Both personally and politically his friends are numerous and staunch. He has been variously employed there as clerk and by mining interests until 1906, when he was his party's choice for Recorder, was elected by a large majority, and reelected in 1908, when he lead the ticket in the county. The fact that he was again reelected in 1911 seems ample indication that he has proven a thoroughly efficient Recorder. Being a member of the B. P. O. E., Fraternal Mystic Circle, and Spanish-American Alliance, Mr. Watson is one of the well known fraternal men of his section. His home is in Florence. He was married in July, 1910, to Miss Olive Louise McGuigan.
