James M. Weaver
1937 – 2020
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jim Weaver, past CEO of the Organ Historical Society. Jim was a beloved member of the Society who gave to everyone he met a generosity of spirit, kindness, and gentle demeanor. Throughout his tenure, Jim brought integrity and determination to the business of the Society. Jim spearheaded the gargantuan task of moving the headquarters of the OHS from Richmond, Virginia to the estate and grounds of Stoneleigh in Villanova, Pennsylvania. His efforts also bolstered the E. Power Biggs Scholars program into a robust, sustaining opportunity for young members of the pipe organ community. As described by others, and known by all, Jim Weaver was a true “gentleman”. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the thousands of OHS members, we send our condolences to Sam Baker and all of Jim’s family members.
