A memorial service was held last evening, 22 June 2007, at the Friends Meeting House in NW Washington celebrating the life of Herb White who passed at Sibley Hospital on 8 June at the age of 71 of complications associated with lung cancer.
Born 06 July 1935, a restaurateur and real estate investor who owned and operated businesses in Baltimore, Washington and Miami, Herb White was one of the founders of DC Arts Center.
When remembering his long time friend, Councilman Jim Graham brought his remarks to a close by announcing that the District of Columbia's City Council had enacted a proclamation designating Tuesday, 3 July 2007 as Herb White Day.
