Kerns in their Hampshire County, West Virginia, 1754-2004 (2004) as “a self-proclaimed liberal Democrat.” [13] West Virginia historians Hu Maxwell and Howard Llewellyn Swisher in their history of Hampshire County (1897) stated that White was “independent in thought and character and fearless in following his convictions, he has never been a follower of party leaders.” [3]

West Virginia Fish Commission

On February 20, 1877, an act entitled “Act to increase the supply of food fishes in the rivers and waters of this State” was passed by the West Virginia Legislature creating the West Virginia Fish Commission for the purpose of propagating fish farming for the stocking of streams in West Virginia to transform them into viable fisheries. [24] [25] [26] White was appointed by West Virginia Governor John J. Jacob as one of the inaugural commissioners on June 1, 1877 along with John W. Harris of Greenbrier County and Henry B. Miller of Wheeling . [1] [3] [24] [26] [27]White is appointed for a term of four years. [24] The newly appointed commission convened on July 17, 1877, and White was elected its secretary and Harris as its president. [24] White and his fellow commissioners have been “dedicated to their cause,” [28] but their beginning of the opposition has not been enough. [28]

White embarked upon a search for potential locations for a state fish hatchery , and in the summer of 1877 he purchased this the Maguire Springs and 2.5 acres (1.0 hectares) near Romney from Charles Harmison of Valley View . [24] [28] [29] At the Maguire Springs, White “erected and equipped” at a fish hatchery costing $ 700 at his own expense, [28] [29] and by 1878, the hatchery was in “successful operation” and 600,000 fishes had been distributed from it. [26] The West Virginia Fish Commission later purchased from White the Maguire Springs and the surrounding 0.75 acres (0.30 ha) for $ 550. [25] [28] [29]In 1880, the Maguire Springs hatchery was vastly improved and expanded with the construction of ponds and the erection of a fence around the hatchery facility. [29] In 1885, a residence was constructed at the hatchery for the facility’s manager. [29] Following Miller’s resignation from the commission, White was appointed as President of the West Virginia Fish Commission in June 1885. [29] By June 1886, the hatchery of the Maguire Springs was enlarged and in 1891, a hatching house was built along with additions to the manager’s residence, all under White’s direction. [29] White also personally served as the manager of the Maguire Springs fish hatchery during hiatuses between manager appointments. [29]By 1893, fish populations within the West Virginia streams became self-sustaining and the hatchery operations at Maguire Springs were discontinued. [25]

White and his colleagues continue to pay tribute to their commission to the West Virginia Legislature. [28] The legislature continued to authorize $ 500 annually for the hatching and stocking of fish in West Virginia’s streams. [28]White was reappointed as a commissioner by each succeeding Democratic governor. [1] [3] For the majority of his tenure serving the West Virginia Fish Commission, White held the post of the Commission’s President. [3]
