Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The White Collection includes two series. The first on Charles deGaulle includes an original print, a copy negative which White apparently made from the print, and a copy print for virtually all of the 75 images. Most of the images are between 1940 and 1970. White obtained these from Anne Dupre, head of the photographic office of the Quai d'Orsay (the French Bureau of Foreign Affairs). Mrs. White provides an English translation on the back of each photograph if the item list in French below is insufficient.

The French Africa photographs (White listed 87, but only 74 arrived) include drawings, maps and caricatures from the earliest French involvement in Africa and photographs for the 20th century. The collection includes a number of photographs of deGaulle in Africa. The focus of the collection is military and diplomatic events, portraits of leaders and depictions of particular places.

An item list of the photographs is available.
