Bruce Edward Weber, American art historian. Fellow Smithsonian fellow, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, 1977. Member of Association American Museum.


Weber, Bruce Edward was born on December 29, 1951 in Brooklyn. Son of Harry and Sylvia Weber.

Born in Port Adelaide, South Australia, Weber played juior football with South Australian National Football League (SANFL) club Port Adelaide before becoming president of Port Adelaide Football Club from 1986 to 1992. In this role, Weber led a charge for the club to receive a licence in the Australian Football League (AFL). In 1990 this move almost came to fruition but for the formation of a new South Australian club, the Adelaide Football Club, to receive the licence and enter the AFL in 1991.

Weber was succeeded by Greg Boulton as president/chairman in 1993, with the Port Adelaide Football Club eventually entering the AFL in 1997. It is considered that Weber's initial vision during his time as president led to this outcome.
