Terence Hanbury White (May 29, 1906 – January 17, 1964) was an English writer, born in Bombay (now Mumbai), India. After graduating from Queens' College, Cambridge with a first-class degree in English, he spent some time teaching at Stowe, before becoming a full-time writer. He was an intensely-involved naturalist. White is most famous for writing The Once and Future King, a sequence of novels that retell Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, reinterpreting the legend of King Arthur. The sequence includes: The Sword in the Stone (1938), The Queen of Air and Darkness, originally titled The Witch in the Wood (1939), The Ill-Made Knight (1940), The Candle in the Wind (1958), The Book of Merlyn (published separately and posthumously, 1977) White wrote many other books, some under a pseudonym. They include a children's book, Mistress Masham's Repose, and The Master. Other works include The Goshawk, an account of White's ill-fated attempt to train a hawk in the traditional art of falconry; The Godstone and the Blackymor, a travel book set in Ireland; England Have My Bones, an account of a year spent in England; and The Age of Scandal and The Scandalmonger, collections of essays on 18th-century England.He died aboard ship in Piraeus (Athens, Greece) while returning home to Alderney from his American lecture tour.
