Biography

White was the son of two of the found­ers of the Se­venth-day Ad­vent­ist Church, James Spring­er White and Ell­en Gould Har­mon. He mar­ried twice, to Em­ma L. Mc­Dear­mon and Re­bec­ca Bur­rill Ste­phen­son (1922).

The pub­lish­ing or­gan­i­za­tion he es­tab­lished was orig­in­al­ly known as the Gos­pel Herald Pub­lish­ing Com­pa­ny.

It was tak­en over by the church and re­named to South­ern Pub­lish­ing As­so­ci­a­tion in 1901. It merged with the Re­view and Her­ald Pub­lish­ing Ass­oc­i­a­tion in 1980.

White al­so found­ed the J. E. White pub­lish­ing com­pa­ny in Bat­tle Creek, Mi­chi­gan.
