Before the turn of the 20th Century, Thomas White of Cleveland acquired a Locomobile steamer. Unhappy with the quality and reliability, he turned to his son, Rollin - a Cornell engineer - to perfect the water tube steam generator which resolved most basic problems with the Locomobile. A patent for this new design soon followed. Rollin and his brother Windsor began making White steamers. The White automobiles built a reputation and even impressed William Howard Taft, who selected a White as the first official automobile of the U.S. President.

The White automobiles sold well until steam power was later displaced the popularity of the internal combustion engine. After research, White licensed the design of a Delahaye engine and built a 'gas car' in 1909. 1912 was the first year without any steam design and internal combustion remained the sold powerplant.

The Model 30 was available in two wheelbase lengths, a 110-inch for the touring and Roadster, and 120-inch for formal Limousine and Landualet versions.

Leo Bongers amassed a collection of over 100 cars, a dozen motorcycles, and automobilia. Upon his death, there was a dispersal sale. This Model 30 was purchased by Frank Spain. The car remains in original, unrestored condition. Considering its age, it is in very nice condition and has been well cared for and preserved. The engine is a 226.4 cubic-inch four-cylinder engine fitted with a single carburetor. There is a four-speed manual transmission, leaf spring suspension, and 2-wheel brakes.
