Stuart Austin Wier was a skilled Construction Engineer who continued in this line of work until the depression limited his market so severely that he could not earn the income he required. He reassessed his situation, knowledge, talents, and needs, and ultimately decided to change his profession to law; Weir went back to school and took the courses he needed to become a corporate lawyer. Despite the fact that the depression had not ended, he completed his training, passed the Bar Exam, and quickly built a lucrative law practice, in Dallas, Texas; in fact, Weir was so successful that he was turning away clients.
