Reverend Henry William Watson (1827-1903) was a scholar who attended King’s College London and Trinity College Cambridge before working as the Mathematics Master at Harrow School from 1857-1865. Harrow, an all-boys boarding school, is known for its number of accomplished alumni, including Lord Byron and Sir Winston Churchill. This copy was signed by 21 of Watson’s sixth form students to commemorate his leaving Harrow.
