Captain Reverend Dr. William Andrew White was born in Virginia in 1874, the son of ex-slaves. He came to Nova Scotia in 1900 to study theology at Acadia University. He was the first black student there. White was ordained as a minister in 1906. He married Izie Dora White and together they had 12 talented children. When WW1 broke out he enlisted in a segregated battalion and became the only black chaplain and only black officer in the British Army. The rest of his life was spent serving his church, family and community. In French: Le capitaine des âmes : Révérend William White
