ALFRED R. WHITE was born in 1877 to Frederic and Ida White. His father was a farmer at Broadkiln Hundred, in Sussex County, Delaware.
Alfred R. White was living at 433 Chambers Avenue as early as the fall of 1918. Still at that address at the time of the 1920 Census, he was living with his mother, Ida White. He was at that time in the self-employed in cigar business. Also at home was his 28 year old brother Amory K. White, then the manager of an automobile tire company.
Alfred White served as City Clerk from 1923 to 1927, during the administration of Mayor Victor King, who was elected on a Non-Partisan slate. After leaving city government, he took a position as a salesman in a department store, which is where he was working in 1930. A bachelor, he was at the time of the 1930 Census lodging at 523 Pine Street, the home of realtor Henry Donahoo and his wife Edna. He was living at 653 Washington Street in Camden's Ninth Ward when he was hospitalized with appendicitis in October of 1936. After recuperating with his brother and sister in Staten Island NY, Alfred White returned to Camden, and took up residence at 555 Berkley Street. He died of an apparent heart attack at the New York Shipbuilding Corporation shipyard, where he had been working.
