Harry Vere Dawson WHITE

M, #3183, b. 16 December 1853, d. 20 January 1941

Biography

Harry Vere Dawson WHITE was born on 16 Dec 1853 in Co. Dublin, Ireland.1 He married Frances Alice MEREDITH, daughter of George Thomas MEREDITH and Lilly Anne BIRNEY, on 2 Sep 1879 in Skyrne Parish Church, Co. Navan, Ireland, witnesses Mary Lucy White, B. Newport White, G. Meredith.2 Harry Vere Dawson WHITE died on 20 Jan 1941, at age 87.
Harry Vere Dawson White was the Bishop of Limerick, Ardfert and Aghaboe. His obituary appeared in the Weekly Irish Times in 1941:

THE RIGHT REV. H. VERE WHITE, D.D.
The Church of Ireland has lost one of its most distinguished and popular bishops by the death, which took place on Monday at 4 Ailesbury road, Dublin, in his 88th year, the Right Rev. Harry Vere White, D.D. former Bishop of Limerick, Ardfert and Aghadoe.
Born in 1853, he was the son of the Rev. H. Vere White, a well-known Dublin clergyman. He received his early education at the Academic Institute, whence he proceeded to Trinity College. He obtained his B.A. degree (Sen. Mod, Ethics and Logics) in l876; Divinity Testimonium, 1877 ; Eccles. Hist. Prize (First), 1874; M.A., 1881; B.D. and D.D. in 1921.
In 1878 he was ordained for the Curacy of Ardbraccan, and the following year accepted an appointment in New Zealand. Later he returned to Ireland, and again took up work in the Church of Ireland. From 1885 to 1888 he was Rector of Almoritia, and from the latter year to 1894 Rector of Killeak. For seven years he was Secretary of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in foreign parts, and from 1894 to 1901 he acted as Secretary to the Incorporated Society. Dr. White was also Treasurer and Chancellor of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Chaplain to the Lord Lieutenant, and Honorary Chaplain to the Archbishop of Dublin. For thirteen years he was Vicar of St. Bartholomew’s Church, Elgin road. Dr. White was most popular in this important parish. The weakness of his voice prevented the excellence of his discourses from being appreciated as much as they merited; for they were always full of thought and highly instructive.
Dr. White was Archdeacon of Dublin from 1917 to 1918, when he was elected to the Deanery of Christ Church Cathedral in succession to Dean Walsh. He was a member of the General Synod since 1909, and received a large measure of support when the Archbishopric of Dublin became vacant. However, the choice fell on a much younger man in the person of Dr. D'Arcy, afterwards Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland.
In 1921 the Right Reverend Dr. Orpen resigned the Bishopric of Limerick owing to his advanced age and Dr. White was chosen as his successor. To succeed Bishop Orpen was a matter of no small difficulty, as, without wishing to draw any invidious distinction, he was the most sincerely-loved bishop in the Church of Ireland. The two, however, had much in common. They both came from the South of Ireland and were equally broad-minded, and lived on the friendliest terms with the members of all other denominations. Dr. White was essentially a scholar and a gentleman, and made no enemies, avoiding all controversies, either religions or political. His leading characteristic was the possession of sound common sense combined with a unique knowledge of human nature. He was three times Select Preacher before the University of Dublin and wrote a variety of tracts on the lives of Bishop Inglis and Bishop Berkeley and on other subjects. He was valued, however, more for his wisdom in affairs than for any profound learning or gift as a writer.
In 1879 Dr. White married a daughter of Mr. G. T. Meredith, and two of three sons gave their lives in the Great War—Captain Hill W White, R.A.M.C, in 1918, and Lieutenant Gerald White (1916).
Dr. White resigned the Bishopric of Limerick in October, 1933, exactly twelve years after his enthronement.
On the occasion of the celebration by Bishop White and Mrs. White of the diamond jubilee of their wedding in September, 1939, they received a letter from the King and Queen conveying “sincere congratulations and bent wishes, together with the hope that they might, be long spared to each other."3
