Lindsay White (5 January 1922 - ) was a forward for Geelong and South Melbourne during the 1940s and is regarded as one of the best forwards from that era. He was fast on the lead, was a strong overhead mark and possessed a long and accurate kick.

He kicked 67 goals in 1941, his debut season for Geelong, but at the end of the year Geelong went into temporary recess due to travel restrictions during World War II and White transferred to South Melbourne. He spent two seasons there, kicking 111 goals in 25 games and leading the league goalkicking in 1942. White returned to Geelong for the start of the 1944 season and was named club captain in 1948. In that year he again won the league goalkicking, with 86 goals.

Lindsay White played until half-way through the 1950 season, retiring due to a debilitating injury to his achilles tendon.
