Catharine Robb Whyte, Peter Whyte: Commemorative Portfolio



Edited and annotated by Jon Whyte and published by the Whyte Foundation of Banff, Canada in 1980, the portfolio celebrates and chronicles the life of Catharine Robb Whyte (1906 – 1979) and Peter Whyte (1905 – 1966). Both long-time residents of Banff, Catharine and Peter were best known as portrait and landscape artists, local community supporters and philanthropists, and founders of the Whyte Foundation and Museum of the Canadian Rockies in Banff, Alberta.
