Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Thain White was born and raised in Rollins, Montana. White spent his early years helping his father, Ernie White, raise sheep at White's Columbia Sheep Company. It was during these years that White acquired a strong interest in the history and archeology of his native state. This interest resulted in decades of Montana historical research and writings.

In 1949, Thain and Ernie White began the Flathead Lake Lookout Museum in Lakeside, Montana. Located on the west shore of Flathead Lake, the museum is dedicated to exhibitions and collections concerning regional and primitive artifacts. Two generations of the White family maintained the museum facility until 1972, when the O'Neil Jones family purchased the museum.

During his years as museum director, White undertook a number of research projects concerning the Montana area and the Flathead Valley in particular. He conducted a variety of excavations at battlegrounds from the Indian Wars of the 1880s and homestead sites such as Chimney Coulee. He also focused much of his research on railroads and stage companies existing in Montana at the turn of the century. Much of White's work was done in partnership with Montana State University (now University of Montana) Professor of Anthropology Carling I. Malouf. White documented his research and many of his articles were published together with Malouf by the Flathead Lake Lookout Museum.

Mr. White died on April 29, 1999.

Many of White's articles also included photographs of excavations or relics. Most of these photos were taken by White, although some are prints from the National Archives or the Montana Historical Society. A separation sheet has been included within the collection for those photos that have been removed from White's articles. The photographs include images of a wide variety of Montana subjects, including artifacts, historical places and people, animals and plants, and Glacier National Park. A set of European photos includes images of France and Belgium in the late 1970s.

The photos are divided into six subseries, based on White's arrangement: General; Boats and Planes; Soldiers, Indians, and Cowboys; Nature and Animals; European; and Going-to-the-Sun Highway. The photos have two types of numbers on them, but are intellectually arranged by subject.
