Minnie White


Minnie White

Minnie White was a Storyville brothel proprietor in the early part of the twentieth century. She operated out of a large mansion at 221 North Basin Street, in New Orleans, Louisiana, between 1907 and 1917. For most or all of that time, she co-owned the structure with another madam, Jessie Brown. A 1911-12 edition of the Storyville Blue Book indicates that the phone number of White's establishment was 1663 Main.

Many of White's charges were advertised as talented singers of bawdy ballads in addition to their regular duties as prostitutes. A photograph by E. J. Bellocq (circa 1912) of one of her girls, one Marguerite Griffin, is frequently reproduced in texts about Storyville.
