Biography of William H. Watts


Watts, William H., Buffalo, son of the late Robert Watts, who was well known in detective circles, coming to Buffalo in the early fifties, was born in Buffalo, January 5, 1860. After obtaining a liberal education from the public and high schools of his native city, he worked in the mercantile business for a short time, and then obtained a position in the American Exchange Bank (White's Bank at that time). He was in the employ of the bank for five years, then left the banking business and returned to the mercantile and insurance business. In 1883 he engaged in the detective business with his father and Thomas Curtin, and was in their employ until 1891, when he and his father formed a copartnership under the name of Robert Watts & Co., and Mr. Curtin retired. On the death of his father he took full charge of the business, and is now conducting the Buffalo Detective Agency, and Police and Fire Patrol, at Nos. 608 and 610 Eilicott Square.
