John White and Zula the Dog, as a young child.

Dr. White is first and foremost a professional hunting guide. For many years he has raised and hunted fine, upstanding English and Irish Setters, and now has the best bird dog with whom he has been associated, Zula the Dog, a German Shorthaired Pointer.

Other than that, he has written and produced programming for public broadcasting stations, most notably The Pointing Dog Social Club for Georgia Public Broadcasting under the pen name, Budd Harbis.

As himself, he writes for prestigious historical journals and produces documentaries. The Showman and the Hero is a film about the making of the 1941 movie, Sergeant York with Gary Cooper. This film has been broadcast on public television and special screenings throughout the South.

Dr. White’s documentary Lost Masterpiece: Karl Brown’s Stark Love (co-produced with Craig Tollis) was the flagship event of Knoxville’s Great Smoky Mountain Film Festival and was broadcast on public television stations.

He is the author of two books, No Kin to Elvis (in development as a play) and D. Man: My Life and Boxing.
