Harper was a New Zealander who made several first ascents and did much exploration and survey work in the 1890s with Charles Douglas and G. E. Mannering. He was one of the pillars of the climbing world in New Zealand, and greatly revered by men of the younger generation, such as Scott Russell, just as he had looked up to the members of the Alpine Club.
