Biography of Hugh White (born 1865)
Oneida County, NY Biographies





The importance of the business interests which are under the direction of Hugh White have made him widely known, rendering it unnecessary to write that which will establish his position as a leading business man of Utica. He was born August 29, 1865, at Sweet Briar farm, in Ossian, Livingston county, New York, his parents being William Mansfield and Anna Maria White, the latter a daughter of William Constable Pierrepont. His early education was acquired at De Veaux, Niagara Falls, New York, and later he attended the Utica Free Academy. His liberal training well qualified him to solve important business problems which he has since faced. His judgment is sound, his discrimination keen and his executive forces and administrative ability enable him to carry forward to successful completion whatever he undertakes. He is now the active manager of the Pierrepont landed estate in northern New York, and he is also the secretary and treasurer of the Utica Drop Forge & Tool Company, and one of the directors of the Utica National Bank.

The military chapter in the life history of Mr. White began with his enlistment, on the 13th of November, 1888, in the Forty fourth Separate Company of the National Guards of the state of New York. On the 8th of November, 1890, he was appointed first sergeant and was honorably discharged, on the 31st of January, 1896 His political allegiance has always been given to the republican party and he is loyal to its teachings and principles, yet has never sought or desired office, his time being fully occupied by his business activities and social interests. He belongs to the Fort Schuyler Club, of Utica, and the Rome Club, of Rome, New York. That he is interested in benevolent projects is indicated in the fact that he is now serving as treasurer of the House of the Good Shepherd.

On the 14th of June, 1904, Mr. White was married in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, to Miss Theodora Miller, a daughter of Addison C. and Cynthia J. (Brayton) Miller. They have become the parents of three children: Theodora, born December 5, 1905; Hugh, born August 5, 1907; and Emily Pierrepont, whose birth occurred February 20, 1910. Such in brief is the history of one whose long residence in Oneida county has made him widely known, while his superior business ability and personal work have established him high in public regard.
