Biography Harry Weaver Love was born in 1893 and was associated with the Weaver family, a well-known early settler of Buncombe County and also was the father-in-law of George William McCoy, Sr. (b. 1901),  Editor of the Asheville Citizen newspaper.  He served as Director of the Asheville chapter of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in the 1920's and also served as the Foreign Work Executive for the Eastern Region of the Young Men's Christian Association while living in Asheville.  He resigned from his post as Executive Director due to illness in the family in 1924 and many of the letters in the collection are from Directors of other national chapters who had worked with Love and who acknowledged his work with the international organization.
