Gospel preacher listed in Preachers of Today, Vol. 1, 1952, 366 and fifth president of Pepperdine University.

Howard A. White was born September 28, 1913. at Cloverdale, near Florence, Ala. He was reared in Florence, and finished grammar and high-school training there. He was baptized in July, 1926, by B.L. Nabors, at the Sherrod Avenue Church, in Florence, and was immediately encouraged to take an active part in the work of that church. In September of 1930 he entered David Lipscomb College, and preached his first sermon in November of that same year. Soon he began to fill monthly preaching appointments in and around Nashville and near his home in Alabama. He was president of David Lipscomb College's graduating class of 1932. Brother White's first "located" work with one congregation was at Columbus, Miss. Later he worked with the church at Jackson, and then at Charleston, Miss., where he now lives. He has also found time for meetings or special preaching engagements in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, and Ontario, Canada. In addition to regular work with the Charleston congregation, he uses Sunday afternoons and other times to preach regularly for five other congregations in four counties. The Charleston Church supports him in a number of mission meetings each year. In the six years he has labored in Mississippi he has had a part in establishing and strengthening congregations in many parts of the state. -- Gospel Advocate, Sept. 25, 1941, 922.
