I don't know who named the projection. It was given the name water's because it resembles a face surfacing from the water.

To clarify this incorrect answer: The Waters' view is named for Charles A. Waters, an American radiologist.

#3 in this post is the correct answer: Charles Alexander Waters (18881961), an American radiologist. I would only add that since this radiographic view is named after Dr. "Waters," it should be transcribed "Waters' view" (using the possessive form of his last name) as opposed "Water's view." Water's view would be correct only if the radiologist's last name was "Water."
