White's father disappeared before he was born and he was abandoned by his mother. The canteen manager of the hospital where he was born adopted him.

Major advertising accounts he handled included BOAC and Helena Rubenstein. He was president of a major advertising association and received 247 major advertising awards.

In his spare time he was devoted to the revival of forgotten operas and he founded Opera Rara for that purpose. He also translated opera libretti and wrote travel books.
