White Hall is named after Thomas H. White, founder of the White Sewing Machine Company. Mr. White met Mary McLeod Bethune while vacationing in Florida. He became a trustee of the school (then known as the Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School) and financial supporter.[2] White Hall was built in 1915 with classroom and office spaces. It closed in 2010 for renovations, and it reopened and was rededicated in August 2012. White Hall houses Bethune-Cookman University's president's suite and administrative offices.[3]
