BAKER, W. Weaver  (1866-1954) – lecturer

The Devon and Exeter Daily Gazette (1885-1932) Vol. 154 No. 24,844 (22 January 1926), p. 16, col. 4

“In the Chapter House, Exeter, the Cathedral Guild of St Peter was entertained to an excellent exhibition of lantern slides by Mr H.[sic] Weaver-Baker. The subject dealt with the detail work of the Cathedral, the corbels, bosses and miseres being specially treated. Mr Weaver-Baker explained the meaning and symbolism of many of the quaint and interesting figures. Among the slides exhibited were several of the stained-glass windows photographed in coloured photography plates. Another series gave a close up view of the figures on the minstrels gallery. The Archdeacon of Totnes presided, and at the conclusion a hearty vote of thanks was passed to Mr Weaver-Baker.”
