Hall of Fame Class:
1983 (Moore-Stone Award)

Born in Kentucky, J. Edwin White moved to Tallahassee in 1911 and resided there until his death on March 2, 1983. A prominent banker, Mr. White was deeply involved in civic and charitable work in Tallahassee. A life-long supporter of Florida State College for Women and Florida State University, he was a great friend of FSU football. His special interest was Florida State baseball and the Seminoles’ great success in that sport has been due in no small part to the generosity of Mr. White. Seminoles everywhere thank him for his steadfast support and mourn his passing.
