I found a bunch of tidbits on the family in the Fort Wayne newspapers.  One of the more notable (and tragic) entries - "Donald Stewart Whyte, infant son of Mr. & Mrs. James Edward Whyte, died at 10 o'clock this morning at the family residence, 43 Swinney avenue, at the age of 21 days.  Death was due to inanition.  Funeral services were held at 4 o'clock this afternoon."  From the  Fort Wayne Sentinal from 3 Aug. 1900.

Also, in 1912, there's a mention of James E. Whyte's sister Mrs. Allan Menzies visiting them, and her husband was listed as a professor.
