Photographs by author Stewart Edward White primarily documenting his travel experiences in Africa and the United States.
Stewart Edward White (1873-1946) was an American author and spiritualist. He was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan and attended the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School. In 1903 he moved to Santa Barbara, California, where his parents lived. A year later, he married Elizabeth "Betty" Grant of Newport, Rhode Island; they had no children. His first novel was The Westerners (1901), inspired by his experience in the Black Hills, South Dakota. In 1902, he wrote a best-selling book, The Blazed Trail. White wrote numerous essays, short stories, Westerns, adventure and romance novels, as well as works on metaphysics. He was an avid traveler and outdoorsman, often basing his writings on his own experiences. He died in Hillsborough, California in 1946.
