I have two versions of E. Frank White’s memoir entitled “The White Family.”

One is a duplicate copy of a type written manuscript on 8 ½ by 11 paper. It appears to me that it is the earlier version. In the following transcription, I have largely followed the formatting, spelling and punctuation of this version. One page was not duplicated completely, and lost about 1” on the right hand margin. I have filled in the missing text, within square brackets [ ]. I’m not sure of the source of this version, although I probably received it from Martha Thornton or my Aunt Janet Hume, who had a number of my Grandmother Myrtle’s papers and photos.

The second version is actually the first that came into my possession. I phoned E. Frank White Jr. in San Diego in 1991. He replied with a short letter, and a type written manuscript, on 8 ½ by 14 (legal size) paper. This copy has a few handwritten corrections and notes.

In his memoir, Frank Sr. refers to several other “books” describing other periods of his life. I suspect that these are long lost, which is a pity.
