William A. Weber, who began his work as a biologist and naturalist 68 years ago and published authoritative works on Colorado flora, will be honored in a special event and an exhibition at Norlin Library at the University of Colorado Boulder.
The event honoring Weber’s life and work is scheduled for on Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 4:30 p.m. on the Norlin Library fifth floor.
His colleagues say Weber holds the unofficial title of CU-Boulder’s “oldest active professor with the longest tenure.”
Weber, 96, is a retired CU-Boulder professor of botany and curator emeritus of the CU Museum of Natural History. He began his career at the university in 1946 as a biology instructor. In 1962, he became a professor of natural history.
