White was a merchant with a jewelry shop on Market Square during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century in Houlton. (see MMN # 13674) White, a skilled amateur photographer and founding member of the Houlton Fish and Game Association, traveled throughout southern and central Aroostook County hunting, fishing, camping, and photographing the Northern Maine Woods. This collection, a holding of the Aroostook County Historical and Art Museum in Houlton, commemorates these photographersÂ’ efforts to preserve images of turn-of-the-century Aroostook County.
