About Joseph A. White

Joseph A. White II was born in Mebane, North Carolina on February 8, 1918 to Joseph and Lillian White. He spent his childhood years in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he met his wife to be B. Elizabeth Taylor- daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Raymond Taylor) in the First Baptist Church of Greensboro at the tender age of nine years old. He later attended the University of Michigan from 1935-1938, where he earned his Bachelor of Music Degree. From 1938 to 1940 he furthered his education at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philidelphia. He then went back to the University of Michigan to earn his Master of Music Degree during the years 1940-1941. The instrument he played was the French Horn. He volunteered for active duty in the Army-Air Corps in 1941 before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, began his flight training and married Elizabeth on May 16, 1942 in Valdosta, Georgia. From 1942 to 1945 (the period covered by the letters in the three part series Letters To Libby), he was engaged as a troop-carrier, transport, and personal pilot to a variety of notable characters (Winston Churchill, The King of England, Ike Eisenhower, Field Marshall Montgomery, and Field Marshall Alexander) After the war he and his wife returned to Ann Arbor, Michigan, but not before their first born child (J.A. White III) was delivered on December 3, 1945 in Greensboro, North Carolina. In Ann Arbor at the University he worked on his Doctorate and taught French Horn from 1946 to 1947 and then continued to work on his Doctorate and was hired as an instructor there from 1948 to 1950. On May 5, 1948, a second son was born to them (Raymond Alan White- the editor of this book). In 1950 he and his family moved to Tallahassee, Florida where he began work at the Florida State University, while continuing working on his Doctorate. At F.S.U. he played and taught French Horn and a variety of other Music classes such as Music Theory and Sightsinging. He directed ensembles and dissertations as well as playing French Horn in several Symphony Orchestras around the nation. Joseph and Elizabeth's first daughter (Marcia Elizabeth White) was born in Tallahassee on May 6, 1951. Joseph White became Dr. White in 1958 when he was awarded his Doctorate from the University of Michigan. On July 26, 1959, their second daughter (Carroll Taylor White) and final family member of the immediate family was also born in Tallahassee. After becoming a Profressor he also served as Assistant to the Dean at the School of Music at F.S.U. until he retired in 1990. Immediately upon retiring he was rehired as a Visting Professor, and worked at F.S.U. until he died on July 31, 1999. Dr. White died of a heart attack in his School of Music office on a Saturday working on administrative tasks concerning the 62nd Troop-Carrier Reunion for that year- and was found by his loving wife when she went to his office after he called her and said he wasn't feeling too well that day. Dad always said that when it was time for him to go, he prayed that the Good Lord would take him quickly... and He did. It was a tragic but fitting end to the earthly life of a great man.
