Horace White (October 7, 1865 Buffalo, Erie County, New York - November 26, 1943 New York City) was an American lawyer and politician from New York. He was Governor of New York in 1910.


He attended Syracuse High School, Cornell University, and Columbia Law School. [ [http://dspace.library.cornell.edu/bitstream/1813/3165/18/003_18.pdf Cornell Alumni News, vol. III, no. 18, Jan. 30, 1901] .]

He was a member of the New York State Senate from 1896 to 1908. He was Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1909 to 1910, elected on the Republican ticket with Governor Charles Evans Hughes. Hughes resigned in October 1910 when he was appointed to the United States Supreme Court, and White succeeded to the governorship, remaining in office until the end of the year.

White served as a trustee of Cornell University from 1916 to 1943. In White's honor, in 1973, Cornell named two professorships after him: the first two Cornell faculty to become Horace White Professors were Michael Fisher and Jack Kiefer.

He was a nephew of Andrew D. White.

White once owned Fox Island in the east of Lake Ontario, located in the Town of Cape Vincent.

He was buried at the Oakwood Rural Cemetery in Syracuse, New York. [ [http://www.patspresidentialplaces.com/hwhite.html Photoes of burial site] ]
