Biography Walter Weber
Walter Alois Weber (1906-1979)
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Weber developed his talent for drawing at an early age and used to sell his drawings at a local tavern so he could buy soda pop. He showed an interest about animal and plant life early on and had collections of whatever living things he could catch and keep: beetles, squirrels, crows, ants, mice, raccoons, and turtles, for instance; together with plants from their natural habitat.
Naturally he studied zoology and botany when he went to the University of Chicago; he graduated from there as a Phi Beta Kappa with a B.S. degree in 1927. He received his art education at the Church School of Art, the American Academy of Art, and the Chicago Art Institute.
