US Congressman. He graduated from Weaver College in 1889, studied law at the University of North Carolina, and became an attorney in Asheville in 1894. He served in the North Carolina House of Representatives from 1907 to 1909, and the North Carolina Senate from 1913 to 1915. In 1916 he appeared to be the successful Democratic nominee against Congressman James J. Britt for a seat in the US House of Representatives and served all but three days of his term, March 4, 1917 to March 1, 1919. Weaver was succeeded by Britt, who had contested the election, and Britt served from March 2 to March 4. Weaver defeated Britt when they ran again in 1918 and served five terms, 1919 to 1929. He ran unsuccessfully for reelection in 1928, but won again in 1930 and served eight terms, 1931 to 1947. Weaver ran unsuccessfully for reelection in 1946, afterwards living in retirement in Asheville. His congressional service was marked by strong support for the interests of western North Carolina, including work to create the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Blue Ridge Parkway. (bio by: Bill McKern)
