  • Notes 
    • Eben Oliver Weber was born in Woolwich Township in 1881. He attended Stratford Business College before taking a degree at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois. He joined his father, L.S. Weber, and his brother I.S.K. Weber, in manufacturing furniture in Waterloo.

      His entrepreneurial spirit was manifest in his ownership of the Waterloo Furniture Company, the National Furniture Company, Kitchener, and the Crown Furniture Company, Preston, as well as two farms west of the Kitchener boundary. He donated approximately seventy acres of maple sugar bush to the Westmount Golf and Country Club; the remainder was developed into the Westmount residential area.

      He served as chairman of the K-W High School Board, the K-W Hospital Board and the K-W Orphanage Board. At the time of his death, the Rev. George Barthel said, "E.O. Weber had the ability to cut through red tape and to get to the heart of a matter. Oh, that we had more like him!"
