In Memoriam

Philip R. Waite ’80

Philip Waite ’80, of cancer, August 7, 1999, in Bend, Oregon. He received a master’s degree in anthropology from State University of New York, Binghamton in 1985. He worked as an archaeologist in 23 states for several companies, including the Cultural Resource Group of Louis Berger and Associates and Geo-Marine. His specialization was in lithics (stone tools), Native American culture, and historical archaeology. In 1998, he married his wife, Sharon, in Mansfield, Texas, and they moved to the Bend area later that year. He shifted careers from archaeology to music, playing drums in several bands, and working for a company called Multimedia Marketing Group. He was an expert flint knapper and his replicas of aboriginal stone tools are displayed in museums in the United States and Europe. He was a member of the Society of American Archaeology and was the author of several books. Survivors include his wife; his mother; a brother; and a stepson.
