Sidney "Sid" Weaver (c. 1896-?) was an amateur magician and salesman for the Orchard Paper Company in Saint Louis. At one time he ran a mail order business from his home called the Victor Magic Company.
Weaver became interested in magic at the age of twelve after seeing a performance by Ed Reno. During World II, he performed magic for the armed force while in France on numerous occasion.
His specialty was sleight of hand and he created his own effects.
He performed in and around Saint Louis, at schools, churches, night clubs and at private parties.
