Scope and Contents:
Includes description of Cochise, page 11.
Biographical / Historical:
This account was used freely in the preparation of various articles in Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 30 on the Apache, and seems to have been considered one of the principal sources at that time. It has not been published, however, in any other manner. According to his own statements, White was scrupulously careful in securing and checking his information. The account is probably quite trustworthy. It was prepared for the purpose of accompanying his vocabulary. [Manuscript 178].
J. B. White is mentioned in the article in the New Mexico Historical Review, "Es-kim-in-zin," by John P. Clum, who succeeded White as agent at San Carlos. This article gives a good account of the disturbances that occurred during White's sojourn as acting agent. See also the Report of J. B. White, August 9, 1874 on the San Carlos Agency in Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs in 1874, page 294. I have not found any biographical material on White, who was an army surgeon prior to his Indian office appointment. ---Notes by M. W. Stirling, Director, Bureau of American Ethnology October 19, 1953.
