  HN White Cornets & Trumpets This guide contains photos from my collection, horn-u-copia, advertisingand Robb Stewart, which detail the trumpets and cornets of the HN WhiteCompany.Henderson White, a Romeo carpenter’s son, started working in instrumentrepair with O.F. Berdan in Detroit before age 16, at which point he wasrecruited to Cleveland and ultimately was a repairman for H.E. McMillin’sstore. He started his own store selling the same products as McMillin in1894 and expanded to making instruments before 1900. The first, atrombone, was patterned on input from Thomas King, who is the source of the King name (the lion head logo on serials before 9000 not withstanding).White expanded in 1897 into rented loft space and then in 1909 into afactory on Superior street that doubled in size by 1917. The company hiredFoster Reynolds after his one year apprenticeship at York in late 1904.White continued selling stencil products, which was all that McMillin eversold, until at least 1915. The earliest show the same typeface and layout asearly McMillin horns as well as being the same actual instruments. It is likelyWhite was the person marking the bells of all of these pre-1900 examples.The White family continued the firm after his death and ultimately sold toNate Dolin in 1965.  HN White & King Serial Numbers Year Starting Year Starting Year Starting Year Starting1893 1 1923 58,000 1953 330,000 1983 906,8601894 250 1924 68,000 1954 337,000 1984 941,7161895 500 1925 78,000 1955 340,000 1985 976,5721896 750 1926 88,000 1956 346,000 1986 prefix 36-1897 1,000 1927 98,000 1957 352,000 1987 prefix 37-1898 1,300 1928 108,000 1958 358,000 1988 prefix 38-1899 1,600 1929 116,000 1959 364,000 1989 prefix 39-1900 2,000 1930 126,000 1960 370,000 1990 prefix 40-1901 2,400 1931 136,000 1961 377,500 1991 prefix 41-1902 2,800 1932 146,000 1962 384,500 1992 prefix 42-1903 3,200 1933 156,000 1963 392,000 1993 prefix 43-1904 3,600 1934 166,000 1964 399,000 1994 prefix 44-1905 4,000 1935 176,000 1965 406,500 1995 prefix 45-1906 4,800 1936 186,000 1966 416,720 1996 prefix 46-1907 5,600 1937 200,000 1967 426,940 1997 prefix 47-1908 6,400 1938 212,000 1968 437,160 1998 prefix 48-1909 7,200 1939 225,000 1969 447,380 1999 prefix 49-1910 8,000 1940 239,000 1970 457,600 2000 prefix 50-1911 9,200 1941 254,000 1971 468,430 2001 prefix 51-1912 10,400 1942 264,000 1972 479,260 2002 prefix 52-1913 11,600 1943 264,000 1973 490,090 2003 prefix 53-1914 12,800 1944 264,000 1974 500,920 2004 prefix 54-1915 14,000 1945 267,500 1975 511,751 2005 prefix 55-1916 16,000 1946 277,000 1976 579,596 2006 prefix 56-1917 19,000 1947 287,000 1977 647,441 2007 prefix 57-1918 23,000 1948 296,500 1978 715,286 2008 prefix 58-1919 28,000 1949 301,500 1979 783,131 2009 prefix 59-1920 34,000 1950 308,000 1980 850,976 2010 prefix 60-1921 41,000 1951 316,500 1981 869,604 2011 prefix 61-1922 49,000 1952 322,000 1982 888,232 2012 prefix 62- Year Starting Year Starting1919 1 1945 45,0001920 910 1946 46,0001921 1,819 1947 47,0001922 2,728 1948 48,0001923 3,637 1949 49,0001924 4,546 1950 50,0001925 5,455 1951 53,0001926 6,364 1952 56,0001927 7,273 1953 59,0001928 8,182 1954 62,0001929 9,091 1955 65,0001930 10,000 1956 74,0001931 14,000 1957 83,0001932 18,000 1958 92,0001933 22,000 1959 101,0001934 26,000 1960 100,0001935 30,000 1961 112,0001936 32,000 1962 124,0001937 34,000 1963 136,0001938 36,000 1964 148,0001939 38,000 1965 160,0001940 40,000 1966 212,0001941 41,000 1967 264,0001942 42,000 1968 316,0001943 43,000 1969 368,0001944 44,000 1970 420,000 Cleveland andAmerican Standard (extrapolatedfrom Chris Charvat’s list)  H.N.
