Neil Weaver (?-1952) was the London correspondent for Mahatma.
Weaver began performing at a young age and was The Magic Circle's chief founder and was honorary Vice-President for many years.
Weaver was a great friend of Martin Chapender who supported him in the creation of a new Magical Society. After the untimely death of Chapender, Weaver put a notice in the May, 1905 edition of Mahatma, announcing the formation of a society in the memory of Chapender.
Weaver suggested the society's name should be the Martin Chapender Society, but at one of the first meetings the wish for a personalised name was not supported. Louis Nikola suggested the Magic Circle pointing out that Magic Circle had the same initials as Martin Chapender.
