Biographical note

The Rev. Dr. E. P. Weber was the third president of Concordia College (University) from 1958 to 1983.

Dr. Weber was born in 1917. He graduated from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, in 1941. He earned an M.A. from the University of Florida, Gainesville, in 1946, and a Doctor of Sacred Theology Degree from the Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago, in 1962. He served parishes in Gainesville, KS; West Lafayette, IN; and Crawfordville, IN. He was Chaplain at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, from 1945-1958.

During his presidency the high school moved to its own location. The college was granted four-year status. Construction projects included the finishing of Elizabeth Hall; Neils Hall; South Hall (later renamed Weber Hall); the Physical Education Building; and Hagen Campus Center, a remodeling of the former Guild Hall. The old gymnasium was remodeled into a Fine Arts Building. Under his leadership, the Concordia Community Association was formed, minority students were actively recruited, and academic programs were expanded.
