Biographical/Historical note

Cull A. White was born on December 17, 1889 in Omaha, Nebraska. He later attended Miami University, in Ohio. White moved to Washington in 1909. Other than a brief time in military service during the first world war, White made this state his lifetime home. He was associated with the Coffin Brothers Sheep Company of Yakima from 1918 to 1936. White also worked for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation as an inspector at Grand Coulee Dam. He died on August 21, 1964 at his home in Elmer City. Throughout the 1950s and early 1960s White researched and wrote about the history of the peoples of north-central Washington. He focussed on the lives of Indians, especially the descendants of Chief Moses and Chief Kamiakin, and the lives of whites who inhabited the region in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries

Immediate Source of Acquisition note

Washington State University acquired the Cull A. White papers on two occasions. It received the initial accession in the 1950s and maintained it as Cage 203. Katherine Hartley of Freeland, Washington donated the second accession in June 1983 (MS83-22). Ling Jinqi and Robert W. Hadlow processed the collection in 1991. The photographs were separated in 1991 and constituted as this distinct photographic collection, PC 86. In 2002, Mark O'English prepared this guide from a list of images, and it was in turn revised in 2011 by Nathan Sowry during the creation of the digital collection.
