Wayne McClellan Weber, FAIA (1905-1984), was an accomplished architect, photographer, and lover of covered bridges. He practiced architecture under his own name to about 1956, then in partnership with John A. Curry as Weber and Curry, Architects, in Terre Haute, Indiana, from about 1956 to about 1965. Later he worked with Walter Scholer and Associates in Lafayette, Indiana (ca. 1965-1972). He also did business as an architectural photographer, including work for Indianapolis architectural firms Wright, Porteous and Lowe (ca. 1971-75) and Pecsok, Jelliffe and Randall (ca. 1972-73). He became a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1950 and was named a Fellow of the AIA in 1966.
Weber began systematically photographing Indiana’s covered bridges about 1957. That led to his long-time membership in the Indiana Covered Bridge Society and the publication of two books: Covered Bridges in Indiana (Midland, Mich., 1977) and The Covered Bridges of Parke County, Indiana (Indianapolis, 1980).
