Hite's background is unclear; while he appears in a 1917 College Topics article as part of a committee to "reorganize" the Glee Club, he appears to have left the University thereafter to join the Aviation Corps in France during World War I. Subsequently, he is listed in the Harvard class of 1918 in a Harvard alumni report dating from 1921, and appears in a 1923 Harvard Crimson article as a winner of a declamation prize.
In 1921, Hite was employed as a teacher in New Haven, Connecticut. He had become connected with the Harvard Glee Club in the intermediate years and applied for a passport in 1921 to accompany them on tour.
