T. H. White (Terence Hanbury White) was born on 29 May 1906 in Bombay, India, where his father was a member of the Indian Civil Service, and was educated at Cheltenham and Queen's College, Cambridge.

The author of poems, books about hunting and other sports, and some detective stories, he found fame and success with ‘The Sword in the Stone’ (1939), the brilliantly imaginative retelling of King Arthur’s early life.

He was an English master at Stowe School from 1930 to 1936 and died aboard a ship in Piraeus, Greece, on January 17. Mr. White was 57 years old. He was returning home to England after a lecture tour in the United States.
