Abstract:

Judge William Sylvester White was born in Chicago July 27, 1914. He attended law school at the University of Chicago after graduating from Hyde Park High School. Upon graduation, he was hired as the assistant U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, where he tried a myriad of cases and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. After fifteen years at this position, he became assistant state's attorney for Cook County. Interested in becoming a judge, White involved himself in local politics. His stellar performance earned him three separate appointments between 1961 and 1964. In 1990, he began his tenure as a Juvenile Court justice. His expertise in this area garnered him several awards and honors over the years. White also authored and co-authored several articles. White retired, living in Chicago and became one of the surviving members of the Golden Thirteen - the U.S. Navy's counterparts to the Tuskegee Airmen. Judge White passed away on February 16, 2004.
