The E.B. White Collection

Edward Breck White was born in Hope, ME in 1852 and came to Houlton during the early 1880s. 
He was a jewelry merchant, watchmaker, and dealt sporting goods from his shop on the south side of Market Square. 
E.B. White was an avid outdoorsman and an amateur photographer. 
Many of his photos are scenes from the Aroostook Woods and are of his adventures with friends, Walter Mansur and Charles West. 
The E.B. White collection is a collection of photographs by White and other photographers taken between 1885 and 1920.
This collection commemorates the efforts of local amateur and professional photographers to preserve images of turn-of-the-century Aroostook County.
