— 1853 - 1901 —

Stephen M. White was elected Los Angeles County District Attorney in 1882, State Senator in 1886 and United States Senator in 1893. During his term in the United States Senate, Senator White's most notable accomplishment was his successful leadership of the fight to create the Los Angeles Harbor in San Pedro as opposed to Santa Monica Bay, the site that was being advocated by powerful railroad interests. It is believed that the rigors of his battle with the railroad barons contributed to Senator White's untimely death in 1901 at the age of 48. Stephen M. White is one of the men of vision who laid the groundwork so the City and County of Los Angeles could take their extraordinary leadership position in the nation and the world during the 20th century. His legacy should be remembered for all time.

This statue of Stephen M. White has been relocated to its just and final resting place overlooking the federal breakwater through the efforts of the County, City and Port of Los Angeles.

February 23, 1989.
