Terence Hanbury White (29 May 1906 – 17 January 1964) was an English author best known for his sequence of Arthurian novels, The Once and Future King.
Richard C. West has published an article, "Contemporary Medieval Authors" (Orcrist 3/Tolkien Journal whole no. 11; January 1970), in which Tolkien, White and C.S. Lewis are compared. Tom Shippey mentions White, Tolkien, Golding, Orwell, and others, in a "discussion of postwar English writers", in J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century.
- Tolkien's statement is found in an unpublished manuscript, kept with restricted access at the Bodleian Library.
