Scope and Contents: The Hugh L. White Collection consists of photographic prints and negatives taken between 1900 and 1920. The collection documents the timber industry in southern Appalachia at the turn of the twentieth century. It depicts logging techniques and lumber mill practices. It also documents the railroads and the railway systems of the area.

Of interest are images of Butler, Tennessee. The town was flooded by the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1948. This collection has images that pre-date the flooding. Early photographs of Johnson City are also in this collection. Also included are White family photographs. White and his wife, Eliza, traveled a great deal during the early part of the century and those travels are documented in this collection.
