Born in Chicago in 1917, he studied piano and voice as a boy, but it was not until college that he gave any serious thought to making music his profession. He attended the University of Chicago and Central College and then enrolled for graduate study in orchestration and composition under the noted composer, Leo Sowerby. Mr. Luboff began his professional career in three phases: first he taught theory, then began to make commercial arrangements and orchestrations, and was a "pops" singer. He appeared regularly on various Chicago radio programs, in local theatres and on recordings.By 1945 the demand for Norman Luboff arrangements from the Hit Parade, the Fred Allen, and Milton Berle shows, the Chorus of Stars, and others had become so great that he gave up singing. Shortly thereafter Gordon MacRae invited him to join the Railroad Hour production staff. Television and Motion picture work followed and during the next seven years Mr. Luboff arranged music for more than 80 moving pictures, including such hits as "Giant," "Island in the Sun," "Search for Paradise," "Cinerama South Seas," and "The Miracle." In addition, Luboff arrangements were heard regularly on such important television programs as The Telephone Hour, The Dinah Shore Show, The Ford Star Jubilee, and The Jerry Lewis Show. It was during this Hollywood period that the Norman Luboff Choir came into existence as a recording entity. It was an instant success, and has remained solidly so every since.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
