Coast Guard WWII Photographer Passes Away

Los Angeles – Delmar Watson, a child actor who appeared in hundreds of movies and later, along with three of his brothers was a Coast Guard photographer in World War II, has died at the age of 82.  After the war, Watson and his six brothers all worked as photographers for newspapers, television or newsreels.

“He was what I call an old-fashioned news photographer. He was a reporter with a camera,” said his nephew Daniel Watson, who manages the Watson Family Photographic Archive in Glendale.
