Death of Clarence M. White.
Clarence M. White, chief clerk of the Public Works Department, died
on the evening of March 6 at his residence, 1417 Makiki street. Mr.
White was suddenly stricken about 8 o'clock and immediately became
unconscious. At 8:30 he was pronounced dead by Dr. C. B. Cooper,
who had been summoned immediately after Mr. White was taken ill.
Death was due to rupture of a cerebral blood vessel.
Clarence M. White was born September 3, 1848, at Maumee City,
Ohio. He received a common school educatiou there aud afterwards
attended and graduated from Phillips Acadetay in Massachusscts. His
ambition to take a college course was never gratified. He was of a liter
ary turn of mind and became a student of English literature and history,
in both of which studies he was quite advanced. This opened up for
him a career as a school teacher, and he went west and taught for sev
eral years in California. He also held several elective offices. He came
to Hawaii in 1879 and taught school in Hilo, Hawaii; Hamoa, Maui,
and Kapaa, Kauai. Coming to Honolulu he was a bookkeeper with
Macfarlane & Co., and afterwards became chief bookkeeper and cashier
for the Oahu Railway Co. He was appointed chief clerk of the Public
Works Department by H. E. Cooper, then the Superintendent of Public
Works, which position he held at the time of his death.
The deceased was a Past Master of Oceanic Lodge No. 371, F. & A.
M.j Chancellor Commander of Oahu Lodge No. 1, Knights of Pythias;
Wdrthy Pdtron of Lei Aloha Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star; and as
an 18th degree Mason was a member of Rose Croix Chapter.
He vas married on January 16, 1888, to Miss Ettie Spring, sister of
the wife of Henry Davis. He leaves besidesthe widow, five children,
the eldest fifteen years of age,
The Advertiser, editorially, says:
''The stidden death of Clarence M. White, who was on the streets
yesterday, shocked all who heard of it. Havinsr recovered from a serious
illness some years ago he seemed to
ire ana no one, seeing mm aoout uuring tue past week, could have im
agined that he was near his end. Mr. White was one of the best-known
men in the community and a very capable public official. As chief clerk
of the Board of Public Works he had. varied and responsible duties and
he set a high example of integrity and industry. As an official and a
citizen Mr. White can ill be spared."
