John S. White is a son of the late Daniel White, of Portland, a gentleman well known and highly esteemed as one of the prominent business men of that city. He attended Waterville College—now Colby—and Law School at Harvard. Was admitted to Cumberland Bar July 17, 1860, and practiced in Portland and Chicago; but for some years past has been engaged in mercantile pursuits in his native city.
