The International Sewing Machine Collectors' Society is the place to go for a history of the White Sewing Machine Company. It was based in Cleveland, OH and according to the Society, made "machines capable of sewing thick materials that many modern machines are incapable of handling."
Wikipedia also has a brief summary of White history that may be of interest:
