Weaver, Harold Buck
(1889-1961). Painter. Born in England on March 16, 1889. Weaver was a jockey in
his native land and made his way to America to become a cowboy. Upon coming to
San Francisco, he studied painting with Maynard Dixon with whom he shared a
lifelong friendship. About 1917 he drifted to Laguna Beach where Edgar Payne
involved him in making carved and gold leaf frames. He later settled in Los
Angeles and, while working as a picture framer, painted southwestern landscapes
in a decorative style. Weaver died in Los Angeles on December 15, 1961.
