  • Dr. J. Fred Watts Scholarship

    Dr. J. Fred Watts, who joined the College of Charleston in 1970, was considered a founder of the modern physics and astronomy department. He was a great source of inspiration and a wonderful mentor to many students and faculty in the department.

    He was a gentle, self-deprecating, honest man who could not resist the temptation to share interesting jokes with those around him. He was a reservoir of historical knowledge concerning the department, the College and the city of Charleston. Dr. Watts brought tremendous humanity and humility to the teaching of physics.
