The White familyEdit

 
The cathedral spire is dedicated to Clara Dickson White, mother of Andrew Dickson White

The locally prominent White family was closely associated with St. Paul's since its founding. It was observed that "the name [White] should always be woven into the history of St. Paul’s."[3]

  • Horace White (1802-1860; banker and businessman) was a vestryman for over twenty years and warden, and is honored with a stained glass window on the south aisle[3]
  • Clara Dickson White (1811-1882; wife of Horace) donated money for construction of the church tower. The church spire was dedicated in her honor.[3]
  • Hamilton White (1807-1865; banker and brother of Horace), was a vestryman for many years and served on the building committee, and is honored by the White Memorial Chancel Window.[3]

The spire and windows were dedicated in 1907 by Horace and Clara's sons Andrew Dickson White (1832-1918; co-founder and first president of Cornell University) and Horace Keep White (1835-1915; banker and head of a salt company).[3]
