ROBERT C. WEAVER. Photograph inscribed and signed: "For Dennis Kramer,/with personal regards,/Robert C. Weaver". B/w, 8x10. In 1966, Robert Clifton Weaver (1907-1997), a noted economist, was appointed the first Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by President Lyndon Johnson; he served until 1968. Overhis long political career, Weaver held positions in the Department of the Interior, the Federal Housing Authority (1937-1940) and the War Production Board (1940-1944). In 1961, he had been appointed by President Kennedy to head the Housing and Home Finance Agency. When the agency was elevated to Cabinet level in January 1966, Weaver became the first Black American Cabinet member. During his tenure, Weaver increased the availability of affordable housing, striving for the passage of the Fair Housing Act, which worked to end housing discrimination, and launched a revitalization of America's urban centers. In July 2000, the HUD headquarters was renamed the Robert C. Weaver Federal Building. Crease (not evident head on) touches hair. File nicks at right edge. Fine condition.
