Default Capt. Volney E. "Stogie" White

Can anybody here help me out with some info.? I am curious about Capt. "Stogie" White, who worked for the Greene Line from ??? up until probably the mid to late 40's. I know he was a trusted Master/Pilot for the Greenes, serving as Master on their boats. I believe he joined the Coast Guard, probably during WWII as many rivermen did. Later on I do know he was in the marine insurance business.

Does anyone know more about him? When did he die, and did he maintain a cordial relationship with Greene Line after he left them? I never find any mention of his association with the Greenes after their purchase of the DELTA QUEEN. I once asked Woody Rutter what, if anything, he knew about this, and Woody didn't know much of anything. So, Keith, Jim Reising, Dale, (or anyone else): do y'all know anything?
