Fonds consists of records generated by Watson while working as an exhibit designer at the Museum of Anthropology. Material includes records gernated during the preparation and documentation of exhibitions at the Museum, as well as records generated for two additional design projects undertaken by Watson during his tenure at MOA: the design of textile storage and display unit, 1980-1984; and the design of an extension to the west wing of MOA, 1988-1990.

Fonds is organized into two series:
1 - Museum design
2 - Exhibition design
