Gary K. Waite
Gary Waite grew up in Toronto, Ontario, with his mother and brother, Brian. After studying theology in Toronto, he moved to Waterloo, Ontario, where he finished B.A. and M.A. degrees in history at the University of Waterloo.
His PhD, completed under the supervision of Werner O. Packull (Conrad Grebel College), was a groundbreaking study of the Anabaptist career of David Joris.
