Obituary - Chicago Tribune (July 26, 1991)
By Terry Armour
Art White, a pioneer college basketball official and former Catholic League basketball coach, died Wednesday. He was 63.
White, who in 1966 became the first black basketball official in the Big 10, died at South Chicago Community Hospital of complications after circulatory surgery, said his daughter, Annette Campbell.
White was one of the first black high school basketball referees in the city. He began officiating in 1961 after a successful stint as head coach at St. Elizabeth High School, where he led the team to all-city championships in 1956 and 1957.
In his first three seasons at St. Elizabeth, White's teams won 75 of 80 games. White was inducted into the Catholic League Hall of Fame in 1970.
As an official, White helped open the door to other blacks seeking to break into the profession. In addition to the Big 10, White also officiated in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern Athletic Conferences.
"He helped to reduce the resistance of black officials in the Public and Catholic Leagues," said Larry Hawkins, a coach at Carver in the 1950s. "He has been identified with basketball in Chicago for a number of years.
He was a good official, but more than that, he was a good fellow. It's a great loss for all of us."
White's duties in the Big 10 were expanded to football in 1972, and he officiated both sports until retiring in 1982. The highlight of White's career was serving as an official in the 1982 Rose Bowl.
"He was a highly respected man and a highly respected official," said Gene Calhoun, recently retired supervisor of Big 10 officials and a longtime friend of White.
"He was a credit to all. Art was an easygoing guy who never called attention to himself on the field or on the court. He was good with the players and the coaches."
White played college basketball at Loyola University from 1946 to 1950, lettering all four seasons.
In recent years, White, also a retired beer distributor, worked as a volunteer with the Cook County Department of Corrections.
In addition to his daughter, White is survived by his wife, Margaret, and three sons, Larry, Brian and Mark.
A wake will be held at A.A. Rayner Funeral Home, 318 E. 71st St., from 7-8:30 p.m. Friday. Funeral services will be held at St. Joachim's Catholic Church, 700 E. 91st St., at 10 a.m. Saturday.
