Camden Courier-Post – October 21, 1931

One of the five children of Joseph White, a former Camden hotel proprietor, who have been county charges, found a home yesterday.

White, who lives at 517 Penn Street, was rebuked in police court by Judge Pancoast last week, for buying expensive clothing and wearing diamonds while his ten children were in need. Welfare workers said he failed to contribute to the support of the five children in homes here and in Trenton.

The recent hearing was a result of White bringing his 15-year-old daughter, Dorothy, into court as an incorrigible. The charge was disproved today in the opinion of Judge Samuel Shay, sitting in juvenile court. He granted the request of Dorothy’s married sister, Mrs. Catherine Graham, of Magnolia, to have the girl live with her.
