Mr. White is a native of Lincolnshire, England, and brother to Mr. Sydney Wales White, a well known portrait painter in London, whose work has received very favourable notice. Several of his relations being in New Plymouth, Mr. White came out to New Zealand in 1893, and bought the old established business of Mr. Shaw, photographer. He now (1906) devotes his time to the teaching of music. Mr. White is organist of the Wesleyan church, conductor of the Orpheus Musical Society, and he wielded the baton at the production of the “Messiah,” in 1897.
