Edward Lucas White (1866-1934) was a classics teacher and author of historical romances, short stories and poetry.
Poor health, combined with financial problems, forced White to leave Hopkins before completing his degree. White then began his life-long career teaching classics in Baltimore secondary schools. He taught at the Friends School (1892-1895), the Boys' Latin School (1899-1915), the University School for Boys (1896-1899, 1916-1930), and McDonogh School (1933-1934). White's first love was writing poetry, but he found more time for his prose writing. He began publishing short stories in 1903, and his first historical romance "El Supremo" appeared in 1916. His other major works were "The Unwilling Vestal" (1918), "The Song of the Sirens and Other Stories" (1919), "Andivius Hedulio" (1921), "Helen" (1925), "Lukundoo and Other Stories" (1927), "Why Rome Fell" (1927), and "Matrimony" (1932). His one volume of poetry "Narrative Lyrics" was published in 1908.
