Edwin Wood White

2/16/1950 -7/3/2020


Dr. Edwin Wood White of Eureka Springs passed away July 3, 2020 at Legacy Village Hospice Home in Bentonville, Arkansas. He was 70 years old. The cause of death was complications of congestive heart failure.

Dr. White was born in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania on February 16, 1950. He was the son of Jim and Cynthia White. His father was a wild cat oil man. His mother was a championship bridge player and an officer in the Great Books Society. The family moved to Corpus Christi, Texas during Edwin’s youth and finally found their home in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Ed attended Rhodes college in Memphis, Tennessee. There, he was the editor of the school newspaper. He worked diligently on civil rights matters; he marched with Dr. Martin Luther King and integrated his school’s social functions. This caused much hatred towards him and a cross was burned in the yard of the theater where he was starring in the play Tea House of the August Moon. Staying in character, Ed made funny remarks about the situations, calming the jittery audience and earned a standing ovation.

Dr. White took his medical training at Tulane Medical School in New Orleans, Louisiana and did his residency at Charity Hospital. He did further residence work at the University of Arkansas.

For 35 years, Dr. White had a practice of neuropsychiatry in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He saw thousands of patients, many of whom credited him with saving their lives. After semi-retiring from his practice, he continued to see patients at his home on Beaver Lake.

Dr. White was one of the pioneering students in bringing the Tantric Buddhist tradition to Northwest Arkansas. He was a Buddhist practitioner for over 50 years. He was a personal physician to His Holiness Sakya Trichen. He studied with His Holiness for many years.
Ed is survived by his wife, Ann Carter, of the home and by his two siblings: his brother and sister Bruce White and Debbie Scalia of New Orleans, Louisiana. He is survived by one son, Scott White of Seattle, Washington. His also survived by numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. His parents preceded him in death.

Dr. White’s retirement plans were to work until he was age 85. Unfortunately, he had to retire at age 65 due to health reasons. Dr. White’s family would like to thank the staff at Circle of Life Hospice for his excellent cared – in particular, Dr. Harris and Dr. Carter for their service to him. If anyone wants to make a charitable donation in honor of Dr. White, please consider donating to Circle of Life Hospice.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for his widow and is being administered by Bill Symes. Anyone wishing to contribute to the fund may contact Dr. Symes at 479-841-7070.

There will be no memorial service at this time due to the current pandemic situation. A party for Dr. White to celebrate his life and legacy will be announced at a later date.
