EARLY SETTLEMENT: Mudgee's Greatest Myth: Who Designed Mudgee?, P.11

It was from this legacy that RHD White donated the bell and organ in St John the Baptist Anglican Church in Mudgee.
 
Later, White was elected to Parliament for the seat of Gloucester. On December 30, 1887 he was called to a seat in the Upper House and became an MLC.
 
There is much more to the life of this interesting man who dealt with bank robbers, bushrangers and who was renowned for his hospitality whether at his home at Port Stephens, or on board his steam yacht, ‘Kingfisher’ in Sydney Harbour. Perhaps another story for another time.
