to several paragraphs in his diary, Dr. White made a number
of notations in the margins of three guidebooks he took to
the town of Troyes and later donated to the Cornell University
Library. Most of his notes pertain to his interest in architectural
and sculptural features. The following inscription, however,
reveals the name of the government photographer in Troyes.
It was the photographer from whom he purchased the corbel
and a series of photographs.
