Edwin Whiting Chair Maker


There are many references in Edwin's biographies of his making chairs as a livelyhood and that it was a family occupation. Other articles in this website including Mary Cox Biography, Samuel Gifford Journal, refer to this. Also the book, Before and After Mt. Pisgah by Clare B. Christensen, has several references to the Whiting chairs. It was a family business.  The photo below is one of his chairs that belongs to the Mendenhall Family of Mapleton, Utah.
