Elmer John White

“Stroller” White was perhaps the most famous of the reporters that Skagway has had. He was here in the goldrush and was called the “Mark Twain of the North”.

He was born in 1859 in Cambridge Ohio and died in Juneau on October 3, 1930. Mr. DeArmond wrote a book about Stroller some years ago called “Klondike Newsman: Stroller White”.
