"Information on the H. C. White company is remarkably scarce, considering that they were among the top studios of their day, exceeded only by the Keystone View Company and Underwood & Underwood in volume and by nobody in quality. Hawley C. White, who described himself expansively as photographer, publisher, and inventor, started his career with an establishment in New York City for grinding spectacle lenses in 1870. In 1874 he moved to North Bennington, VT. and set up a small factory for producing stereoscopes." -- www.stereo-camera.org
