Norman C. Weichmann was born at Timpas, Colorado. He graduated from Roseville (Ohio) High School and served four years in the Marine Corps during the Second World War. After graduating from Indiana Technical College he joined Chemtron in 1947 and was employed by them for 27 years. In 1970 he was manager of the Pigments Division in Huntington. He filmed Marshall football games with Donald Booth for the coaches' use. The two men did it mainly as volunteers since the school didn't have an official photographer. He left a wife, Jane, and two daughters, Cynthia and Katherine.
