Sanford White was an All-American end who was chiefly responsible for Princeton's winning the Big Three football championship in his senior year. In the Harvard game he picked up a fumble and ran ninety yards for a touchdown and later tackled an opposing runner behind his goal line for a safety to give Princeton an 8 to 6 victory. A week later he recovered a fumble and ran seventy yards for a touchdown to achieve a 6 to 3 victory over Yale. White also played a big part in Princeton's Big Three baseball championships of 1910, 1911, and 1912 as shortstop and cleanup man in the batting order. Against Yale in 1912, he scored five runs, pulled down a line drive and took part in two double plays. In later life White was secretary of the International Harvester Company in Chicago.
