Description: 

A bronze bust of John Barber White on green marble pedestal. Lumber Baron, John Barber White, researched and published his family genealogy and spent years collecting the finest books on genealogy and American history. In 1933, ten years after White's death, his descendants donated this collection to the Kansas City Public Library. This donation greatly enhanced the Missouri Valley Room's genealogical collection. A bronze bust of White was also donated along with the volumes from his genealogical library.
