Born in VT, White attended college in Cambridge, MA, and then moved to New York, NY, to work with the famed Beaux-Arts architectural firm, McKim, Mead and White. He left McKim in the wake of Stanford White's shocking murder in 1906, and formed a partnership with Walter Wilder (1875-1934), two years his senior. This New York-based partnership lasted 23 years. White did not live in New York City, but chose to commute from Plainfield, NJ. Following the dissolution of Wilder and White in 1930 (just after the Stock Market Crash of 1929), he worked as an architectural consultant for the Vermont State Government and consulted on federal government housing projects in Washington, DC. Following the war, he worked in association with a large architectural and building company based in New York, NY, York and Sawyer.

He married Elizabeth Fitz Randolph.
