Drawing of Gangtok huts by WaddingtonIn Beryl White’s scrap album Charles Willoughby Waddington’s line drawings are frequently displayed next to her watercolours, often showing similar if not the same views, which suggests that she may have influenced him or he may have influenced her choice of subject matter.
He was also a frequent dance partner of Beryl’s and seems to have stayed with the Whites in the Sikkim encampment during the 1903 Delhi Durbar.
Waddington's career was intimately linked to India’s princes. He was Principal of several schools founded in India to provide an education similar to that provided by English public schools to the Indian aristocracy (Rajkumar College, Rajkot, 1892-1903; Mayo College, Ajmer 1903-1916).
He also held the position of official guardian to H. H. the Mahraja of Jodphur (1919-1923) and the Maharaj Kumar of Jodphur (1933-37).
