John Kirkwood White L’63 Cambridge, Md., April 2006, city planner and attorney for the poor. Mr. White began his career as a lawyer for the Treasury Department in Washington, DC, but his concern for the underprivileged led him to join Neighborhood Legal Services in 1967 to defend those who couldn’t afford legal representation. Among his clients were a group of juveniles accused of looting in the city’s 1968 riots. In 1975 he became the city’s zoning and planning coordinator. After a three year stint, Mr. White left government practice, working for a series of law firms and finally returning to Neighborhood Legal Services as the manager of its Northeast office before retiring in 1994. Mr. White is survived by his wife Karen Belgin White; two sons, the Rev. Mark David White and Benjamin John White; his stepdaughter, Maria T. Sterrett; his stepson, Timothy O. Sterrett; his sister, Anne White Cooper; and two grandchildren.
