Biography  
Charles White


The following is from George Mills, Hamilton, Ontario, whose wife is a relative of the artist:

Charles Henry White was born at Hamilton, Ontario, in 1878, and was educated partly in Europe and partly in the United States. He studied for a time at the Art Student League in New York City, working at illustrations and especially pen drawing. It was Joseph Pennell, the prominent American etcher, whom Mr. White met in Venice, Italy, in 1901, who induced him to take up etching and who initiated him in the technique of the craft. He returned to America in the same year, and in 1902 he produced a set of etchings of the east side of New York which Harper's Magazine reproduced in half-tone as the first of a long series of similar articles.
