The Life of Michael White: San Marino’s Adventurer-Pioneer

On Monday, November 26 at 7:00 pm in the Crowell Library’s Barth Community Room, San Marino attorney and historian BILL ENGER will deliver a multimedia presentation detailing the life of San Marino's adventurer-pioneer, Michael White.

The chronicle of Michael White vividly personifies the adventure and romance of the 19th century and early California settlers. He was a teenage whaler rounding the Tierra del Fuego, a youthful vigilante thwarting Mexican pirates, a sailor in Kamehameha's Royal Navy, a ship builder, a cowboy, revolutionary and father of thirteen children who occupied San Marino's oldest home for many years. He helped build a new California with Don Benito Wilson, William Workman and the Mission people. White lived the life of ten men. His history will both excite and inspire.
William Enger is a native Southern Californian and resident of San Marino. He is an attorney by profession, but a history buff by nature. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and U.C.L.A. School of Law.

This one hour presentation is for all who love history, adventure and San Marino.
