Peter Graham MBE (1878–1961) was a mountaineer and guide in New Zealand. He was instrumental in the establishment of the early New Zealand tourist industry and earned himself a worldwide reputation as a climber and guide. Peter Graham was not only one of New Zealand's finest-ever climbers; he also built and maintained huts and tracks, advised hotel guests on outdoor activities, and informed them about mountain plants ( Ranunculus grahamii is one of three named after him). Early in his career with the Tourist Department, during winter closures of the Hermitage, he gained administrative experience at head office, Wellington, and worked as a ranger at Rotorua. On 1 October 1913 in Wellington, he married Elizabeth Muriel Pringle, an accomplished piano player and teacher. They were to have four children. Muriel was the first New Zealand-born woman known to have climbed Mt Cook, ascending with Peter in December 1915. Peter Graham served as Head Guide at the Hermitage, Mount Cook from 1894 till 1928.
