Currently there are 64 identified craftsmen, 59 with pictures, and another twenty with pictures but no names. To meet some of The H. N. White Craftsmen go to: Important People of The H. N. White Company.

Over the 72 years that the White family owned The H. N. White Company, there were a number of newspaper articles that were written. For the first time www.hnwhite.com has listed some of those articles which are used for reasearch. Exact dates and Sources of articles are “Restricted” due to the relative cost in hiring research personal. The articles have provided a wealth of information and helped develop the history of The H. N. White Company.

We strive to only use "approved" material for this website. You will not find "borrowed" or "stolen" images on this website. The internet has become a place full of stolen and borrowed images with little or no regard from who and where and under what circumstances the original image or images where used. We pledge to do our best to provide documentation for all images and information sources.

Also, for the first time www.hnwhite.com has release post WWII price lists. After WWII prices were removed for the catalogs because of the length of time in which a catalog was used went from one year to three to four years.
