Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Alvin H. Waite (also known as A.H. Waite) was born in Iowa in 1862. He had one daughter, Helen, from his first marriage, and had married his second wife, Donna Gates, by 1900. During the 1890s Waite worked as a piano tuner in Tacoma. By 1902 he had moved to Seattle, where he continued working with pianos at the D.S. Johnston Company. Despite his keen interest in recording his surroundings with his camera, Waite never made a career out of photography. He continued as a piano tuner and salesman and in 1915 established a business of his own, the Alvin H. Waite Piano Company. Alvin H. Waite died in Seattle in 1929.

Waite was an outdoorsman and traveler, and many of his photographs were made on trips between the West Coast and the Midwest. His photographs of the Mount Rainier area, made in 1893, may be among the first ever made of the region. In fact, Waite may have been the first photographer to carry a camera on an ascent of the mountain. Along with his friends and associates, Albert Barnes and Henry M. Sarvant, Waite was one of the area's most important landscape photographers during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
