Charles Shaver was the sixth president of Sam Houston State University (1937-1942).

Reared in central Texas, Shaver earned a bachelor's degree from Sam Houston State Teachers College in 1923. He served in the Texas Legislature and as President of the Texas State Teachers Association, helping to create the State's Teacher-Retirement System. Shaver received an honorary doctorate from Southwestern University and was named president of SHSTC in 1937. His administration stressed curriculum expansion and additions to the plant. Poor health necessitated his resignation in 1942 and he died in Dallas four years later.

Shaver married Annie Bryan.

The 1945 addition to Jackson Hall honors Shaver.
