Lynn Weaver, a an electrical engineer by training who guided Florida Tech for 15 years as its third president until retiring in 2002, has agreed to deposit his papers and related materials in the Harry P. Weber University Archives at Evans Library. Weaver is president emeritus of Florida Tech.
The materials he is providing reflect both of Weaver’s passions: his leadership of Florida Tech, which saw a strengthening of its academic status, physical plant, budget, endowment and research programs during his tenure; and his standing as an international authority on energy issues and nuclear engineering.
“I’m very pleased that Florida Tech now has the university archives,” Weaver said. “It’s vital to preserve the record of our institutional history, and I’m confident the materials will be extremely well cared for.” Sohair Wastawy, dean of libraries, added, “As the first set of presidential records, Dr. Weaver’s papers will form the nucleus of the Harry P. Weber University Archives.”
