Samuel Albert White (1870-1954) is well-known as an ornithologist and conservationist, but 'During the South African War he had two tours of duty and was temporarily promoted captain, a title he used thereafter' ('Australian Dictionary of Biography'). Fifteen of the vintage prints are captioned in the negative with his name and date (most often 1901); eight of these are also inscribed on the verso. A further fifteen are also inscribed on the verso. The private use of the camera by (Australian) soldiers on active service during the Boer War was not commonplace.
