outline of a life which nearly reached the allotted limit of three-score years and ten. Horace Carr White, the son of Gideon and Rhoda (Springer) White, was born in Bowdoin, Me., January 26, 1836. His family early removed to Litchfield, Me., where he attended the Liberal Institute, but on account of trouble with his eyes, he was unable to carry out his plans for a college course. He graduated from the medical department of Bowdoin College in 1859, and after practicing in Lisbon Falls, in 1862 he entered the army as assistant surgeon of the Eighth Maine regiment. When he returned, much broken in health from overwork and exposure, he remained at Lisbon Falls until his removal to Somerville in 1874. For twelve years he was a valuable member of the school board, and he served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives for the years 1897–‘98–‘99-1900. During this time he was on various important committees, as the one on metropolitan affairs, of which he was chairman two years.
