Charles Thomas Clarke White attended St. Paul’s School from 1867 to 1874 and is a member of the Form of 1873. White was a member of the faculty from 1875-1876.
According to Arthur Stanwood Pier’s St. Paul’s School 1855-1934 (pg. 151), in 1871 White was a member of the Ariel crew team, rowing in the 5th position, and competed in the first annual crew race at St. Paul’s School. The Ariel team was made up entirely of Third Formers, and they finished only two seconds behind the winning Halcyons – Shattucks finished in third place due to one of the oarsmen having caught a crab. This first race began the tradition that is still held each Anniversary weekend at St. Paul’s School.
Pier also notes that White was a dedicated Halcyon, during his Sixth Form year in 1874 White donated a 16 inches long silver crew boat to use as a trophy for Race Day. This trophy is still on display today in the trophy case at the boat house.Charles Thomas Clarke White
