Father White was the chaplain at St. Francis House, the University Episcopal student center in Madison, Wisconsin for fifteen years.

When he was 18, in 1918, his father became the Anglican Bishop of Newfoundland. He was the middle child of the Rt. Rev William Charles White and his wife Frederica and had sisters Dorothy and Elizabeth. On a path to follow in his father's footsteps he attended Kings College in Nova Scotia, went to Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship in 1922 and was ordained in 1927. Following three years as a pastor in Manchester, England, he went to Racine, Wisconsin to become the chaplain of the Racine Military academy, St. Luke's hospital and the Taylor orphanage in Racine. In 1934 he became the headmaster of King's-Edgehill School in Windsor, Nova Scotia. His father, the bishop, died in 1943 and Gerald became the canon residentiary the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador that year.

In 1948 he returned to Wisconsin and in October married Miss Adalin Brown of Madison. They spent the winter in Arizona, returning to Madison where Fr. White was appointed chaplain of St. Francis House in November of 1949. Adalin died the next year and Fr. White remained chaplain until his retirement in June of 1964. He died 5 years later.
