In the 1930's and early 1940's, Mrs. Weaver donated generously to the University of North Texas (then the North Texas State Teachers College), and her donations became the foundation of several important groups of materials in the Rare Book & Texana Collections, including the Weaver Collection of Juvenile Literature, the Mary Webb Collection, and the Miniature Books Collection. Mrs. Weaver was an accomplished story teller, wrote a number of books, and sponsored several exhibitions of dolls from around the world, promoting peace through understanding of different cultures.
