Reverend
Carl
Weber


REVEREND CARL WISMER WEBER was born and raised in Camden, New Jersey in August of 1922 to the Reverend Paul Weber and Martha Weber. Reverend Weber ministered at Epiphany Evangelical Lutheran Church at North 7th and Market Street from the 1920s through at least 1959. The family, which included older sister Katherine, lived at 902 North 7th Street in North Camden

In March of 2008 an album that I believe his mother put together of photos of young Carl growing up in Camden was made available on eBay. I did not win the album, but fortunately, a number of the pages had been scanned and I downloaded them. They are a remarkable window into 1920s-1930s life in North Camden.

Carl W. Weber was a 1941 graduate of Camden High School. After graduating from Temple University he attended the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia and was ordained as a Lutheran minister in 1946. 

Rev. Weber had a long a distinguished career, serving for 33 years in Philadelphia and 28 years in Burlington County. Reverend Weber passed away in June of 2012 at the age of 89.
