PFC Trench Mortar Battery, 4th Division, World War I. Horace was the father of actress Betty White (1922 - 2021 ).

Horace White and his wife and baby daughter (Betty White) family moved to Alhambra, California in 1923, and later to Los Angeles during the Great Depression. To make extra money, he would build radios (crystal radio) and sell them wherever he could. Since it was the height of the Depression, and hardly anyone had a sizable income, he would trade the radios in exchange for other goods, including dogs on some occasions. (In a 2018 PBS program about Betty White, she was seen speaking lovingly of her mother and father and the pack trips they took to the Sierra Nevadas when she was girl. Betty and her parents were "all animal persons" in her words.)
