Help with a E M White form


I have recently (just today in fact) purchased a form reportedly for a 16' E M White Canoe. I purchased this form from a fellow on the West side of MI, He bought it from a fellow in PA who reportedly had built 10 boats on it.
My questions are as follows, please feel free to chime in with any suggestions.
1. Is there a way to tell for sure this form is built from EM White lines?
2. Was there more than one 16' EM White model?
3. Where can I find more info on the E M White Canoes history? I have the Thurlow/ Stelmok' book.
4. Does anyone happen to know a fellow from PA that may have made this form?
Any other info that anyone can share would be invaluable, Thanks, Randy
Contact Jerry Stelmok, Island Falls Canoe. I think he has several of the oringinal White forms. He's probably your best source to verify the design.
Looking through the White catalogs in "The Complete Old Town Canoe Company Catalog Collection, 1901- 1993", available on CD from and on the web, there are several models available at 16 feet: the Boy Scout, the Camp Guide, the Lightweight/Featherweight, the Pleasure and the Sport. The catalogs are a great source of information.

You could try using the "search" function above and type in "E.M. White" and see what comes up.... you'll most certainly find some pictures of nice restorations... look for Chris Pearson's canoe both here in Forums and in the recent issue of Wooden Canoe.

There's probably some White history in Sue Audette's book, "Old Town, Our First Hundred Years"... I'd double-check but I loaned our copy of the book to someone in our chapter.
