White was known for his work in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Among the buildings he helped design, as part of the firm McCaw, Martin and White, or designed as a sole practitioner, are the National Register of Historic Places-listed Imperial Hotel (now the Hotel Vintage Portland), Waldschmidt Hall at the University of Portland, the Dekum Building, the Auditorium and Music Hall, the Sherlock Building, the Flatiron Building (now Ringler's Annex), Woodrow Wilson Junior High School (now Lincoln School Condominiums) and The John G. 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,[5] and the Central Presbyterian Church (aka Old Laurelhurst, or The Bible Church) in Portland.[2][6][7]
