White, Arthur Herbert

Architect Arthur Herbert White (d.1920) was raised in Birkenhead, Auckland. From circa 1892-4 until 1897 he practised his profession as a member of mining agency partnership F.A. White and Brothers. Working on his own account after 1897 White designed a number of ecclesiastical buildings including the Methodist church (1898) and hall (1910) in Mt Eden Road, a Sunday School hall for the Mount Albert Methodist Church (1901) and another for St Jude's Anglican Church, Avondale (1907). The Dominion Road Methodist Church constructed in 1915 was also his design. Rahiri, an ornate private residence commissioned by the Caughey family at Mt Albert, and the Portland Building (1914) - a Kingsland landmark - were also White’s works.
