Alan White had no formal training in art, but had a life-long interest in and appreciation of sculpture, dating back to his childhood when he carved small figures in wood using his pocketknife. His mother was a professional artist and he credited her with his interest in art. For 30 years, White worked as a member of the technical staff for Bell Telephone Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ.
