This collection consists of White's seven union handbooks, his union traveling card and
the By-Laws of the San Francisco chapter of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. The union
handbooks contain the union constitution, which describes the objectives, roles of
officers, modes of finance, methods of discipline, and other aspects of this AF of L
affiliated union. In the last few pages of each book are spaces for stamps giving proof
of the member's having paid his/her dues, and recording the member's name, local
affiliation and transfer data.
Nothing is known of this peripatetic waiter, who worked in six different western cities,
Chicago, Salt Lake City, Reno, Los Angeles, Fresno and Sacramento, during the twelve
years preceding World War II.
Collection is open for research.
