The Florida State University Athletic Department Presents the Moore-Stone Award for Outstanding Service to Florida State Athletics to J. Edwin White.
Born in Kentucky, Mr. White moved to Tallahassee in 1911 and resided there until his death on March 2, 1983. A prominent banker, Mr. White was deeply involved in civic and charitable work in
Tallahassee. A life-long supporter of Florida State College for Women and Florida State University, he was a great friend of FSU football. His special interest was Florida State baseball and the
Seminoles' great success in that sport has been due in no small part to the generosity of Mr. White. Seminoles everywhere thank him for his steadfast support and mourn his passing.
