1914 Max Weber helped to found the Clarence H. White School of
Photography in New York City with the former Photo-Secession
photographer Clarence H. White. Weber taught art history and
art appreciation for four years at the White School. His
lectures, which introduced the concepts of modernism to his
students, were published in 1916 as Essays on Art.
Weber’s teaching at the White School greatly influenced the
first generation of modern photographers.
In 1916 Weber married
Frances Abrams. His son Maynard was born in 1923 and his
daughter Joy in 1927.
Weber left the White
School in 1918 to teach for two more years at the Art Students
League in New York.
