White (Michael Allen) Papers, 1958-1961

Michael Allen White was born in Dallas, Texas, in 1936, the son of Robert A. White. He entered Baylor University in 1953, receiving a B. A. in 1957 and a M. A. in 1962. He served two years in Liberia as a Peace Corps volunteer, then returned to Waco to teach at McLennan Community College. He received an Ed. D. in 1969 from Baylor.

The Michael Allen White Papers were produced primarily during White's student years at Baylor University, and include letters from family members and friends, some biographical materials, financial records, and a draft of his master's thesis, "History of Baylor University 1845-1861," which was later published by Texian Press of Waco. Letters from his mother and "Aunt Ruby" indicate that family members were disputing ownership of his grandparents' property and that he was often the sounding-board for the two factions.
