Mr. Hamilton S. White
Brotherhood Award

Unselfish devotion to the cause…

This award is bestowed to a citizen that advances the brotherhood of firefighters by his or her unselfish devotion to the cause.

The History

Hamilton White was the Third Assistant Chief in the Syracuse Fire Department.  Mr. White was an active firefighter in the 1800s and gave the ultimate sacrifice during the historic Mowry Hotel Fire of 1899. You can read his obituary here.  A monument of White was erected in Firefighters Memorial Park located in Syracuse because of his dedication to the cause. Similarly, we offer the award in honor of Hamilton S. White and his sacrifice.  

Throughout our history, we have issued more than fifty citizens this honor.  Past winners include citizens, firefighters, and even mayors. Some notable winners are current Chief of Fire, Michael Monds, Firefighter Joseph Galloway, H. Thomas Laun, and Syracuse Fire Captain Donald Killian. Their hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed.  We are honored to include them in the history of the Mr. Hamilton S. White Brotherhood Award.
