Professor Weitz grew up in Florida before going to Louisiana for his undergraduate work at Tulane University. After a year of soul-searching, he moved to Tallahassee to pursue his graduate degrees in history. He received his MA and PhD from Florida State University in 2004 and 2007.

Weitz came to Dalton State from Indiana University-Northwest in 2010. His research interests include Southern US History, African-American History, Florida History, and McCarthyism. He has authored, co-authored, edited and co-edited numerous works, including The Smallest Tadpole: Essays on Florida During the Civil War Era, to be published by University of Alabama Press. He is currently working on a biography of Florida’s first post-Reconstruction Governor, entitled, Yankee Redeemer: The Life and Times of Florida Governor George Franklin Drew. Weitz is also a self-proclaimed Soccer hooligan (without the violence).
