Description
The Mike Weber Papers document the professional and personal activities of John Martin “Mike” Weber, a prominent member of the educational community in Sacramento for more than 50 years. Through his work with the Sacramento County Office of Education, the California Retired Teachers Association, and the Japanese American Student Conference, Weber created a huge body of publications, classroom workshops, and supplementary materials that aided children and adults. Focused mainly on the sciences, conservation, and the educational personalities of Sacramento, Weber’s collection provides a snapshot of his research, publications, and personal hobbies.
