Shedd Institute for the Arts in Eugene,[2] the First Presbyterian Church in Medford (part of the Medford Downtown Historic District), and the Corvallis Hotel in Corvallis.[3][4] White also designed Agate Hall (originally Roosevelt Junior High School and later Condon School) on the campus of the University of Oregon,[1] and the Central Presbyterian Church (aka Old Laurelhurst, or The Bible Church) in Portland.[2][5][6]
