Sub-series 2: Biographical, 1930s - 1980s

Physical Location : Boxes 4-5

Scope and Content
The Biographical Sub-series contains one cubic foot of published and unpublished articles about the life of Amory H. "Bud" Waite dating from the 1930s to the 1980s. Most of the unpublished articles are autobiographical sketches written by Waite from 1965 to 1983 for inclusion in various publications, such as his seventy-eight page, typescript draft entitled "Flashes from de Sout, or the 30 Year Long Adventure of an Antarctic Radio Operator." Most published articles are from amateur radio newsletters and publications, though the sub-series does include files of newspaper articles written about Waite from the 1930s to the 1980s. Also included in the sub-series are flyers, advertisements, and some correspondence pertaining to the lectures on polar exploration Waite gave from the 1930s into the 1970s.
