Clarence Cameron White was born August 10, 1879 in Clarksville, Tennessee to Dr. James W. White and Jennie Scott White. At age 8, he was given a violin by his grandfather. He went on to become one of America’s most exceptional composers and violinists of the first half of the twentieth century. White played many well-known concert halls in the United States and Europe. This exhibit features some of White’s personal items from the Museum collection.
