James C. White, professor emeritus in the Cornell School of Hotel Administration, died Oct. 2 at his home in Ithaca, less than a month shy of his 102nd birthday, the Cornell Chronicle rdairy-foeported.

White had a wide-ranging career that included dairy and food safety research, and after retirement, he worked in areas of climate change and acid rain.

White served as director of research for the Borden Cheese Co. from 1944 to 1946, before Cornell hired him as an associate professor in the Department of Dairy Industry in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), where he conducted research and extension work, and taught classes.
