Barrie Moseley White, superintendent and director of the Barnet Leather Company of Little Falls, is the son of the late Edward Lane and Ida Vining (Moseley) White. An extended account of the careers of his father and grandfather appears elsewhere in this work. Born on the 14th of October, 1891, in Lowell, Massachusetts, Barrie Moseley White spent the early years of his boyhood in that famous manufacturing center, where he attended the public schools for a few years. Later he was sent to the private school of Noble and Greenough in Boston and after that to St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire, where he spent four years. Mr. White did not go directly into the line of business that had attracted so many members of his family in the present and previous generation. Instead, he found a position with a banking and brokerage firm in Boston, with which he remained for four years. But the attractions of the leather industry proved to be very great and he left the financial field to become assistant superintendent of the E. C. Mills Leather Company of Boston, Massachusetts, and Middleville, New York. During the World war he served with the United States navy and after receiving his discharge in 1919 he came to Little Falls to become associated with his father and brother in business as assistant superintendent of the Barnet Leather Company. Following the death of his father on November 18, 1922, Richmond L. White became manager and Barrie M. White was advanced to the latter's former position of superintendent, also being made a director.

Mr. Barrie M. White was married on September 16, 1922, to Miss Barbara Beebe, daughter of the late Frederic Beebe of Boston and May (Bickam) Beebe of New Orleans, and granddaughter of Lucius Beebe of Wakefield, Massachusetts, founder of the firms of Lucius Beebe & Company, cotton brokers, and Lucius Beebe & Sons, a leather firm, both of Boston. Mr. and Mrs. White have a son, Barrie Moseley White, Jr.
