There are a number of reports and other writings that were generated in conjunction with a 1952 Carnegie Corporation travel grant for young educational administrators and as a result of his work as a project adviser for educational administration with the Ford Foundation in India, 1967-1972.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Fred H. Weaver, a long time educational administrator at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was born in Aberdeen, N.C., in 1915. He received a bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina in 1937, a master's degree in history from Harvard University in 1950, and a Ph.D. in history from Duke University in 1968. His various positions at the University of North Carolina included:

1937-1938 Teaching Fellow, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
1938-1941 Assistant Dean of Students, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
1946-1961 Dean of Student Affairs, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

1963-1965 Vice President for Administration, University of North Carolina (System)
1965-1969 Vice President, University Relations, University of North Carolina (System)

Weaver's career with the University was interrupted on two occasions. First, from 1941 to 1946, he served as an American vice consul in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1941-1942, and then as an aviator with the United States Navy. Second, from the fall of 1967 until his death in 1972, Weaver was on leave from the university while he served as an educational consultant for the Ford Foundation in India.

In addition to his official duties at the University, Weaver served as a board member for a number of organizations including the North Carolina State Arts Council, 1965-1968; the Central Carolina Health Planning Council, 1964-1968; the Commission on Reorganization of State Government, 1956-1964; the Board of Trustees of Saint Augustine's College, Raleigh, N.C.; and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators.
