EVELYN-WHITE, HUGH GERARD (1874-1924), English archaeologist and Coptologist. He was educated at King's School, Ely. In 1909 he joined the Metropolitan Museum of New York's expedition to Egypt, remaining with them until 1921, except for a period when he served in World War I.
At first he worked with H. E. Winlock at al-Bagawat in the Khargah Oasis and then at West Thebes until 1914. This was followed by the exploration of the Coptic Monastery of Epiphanius at SHAYKH ‘ABD AL-QURNAH. His major undertaking was making an architectural and archaeological survey of the monasteries of Wadi al-Natrun, which resulted in the publication of his three-volume The Monasteries of the Wadi ’n Natrun (New York, 1926-1935). Among his Coptic contributions is The Monastery of Epiphanius at Thebes, with H. E. Winlock and W. E. Crum (New York, 1909-1917).
