William Clarence "Willie" White (1854–1937) was a son of Ellen G. White and James Springer White, two of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and a well known Seventh-day Adventist minister and church leader. His brother Edson White was instrumental in setting up the Adventist work among blacks in the southern U.S.

"Willie," as his mother referred to him as, helped his mother travel, write, and publish after his father's death in 1881. During the 1890s up until the end of her life he was especially prominent as an influential minister in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. W C White, along with 4 other men, was placed in charge of his mother's estate at her death in 1915 and he served as the secretary/director of the Ellen G. White Estate until his own death in 1937.

W. C. White married Mary E. Kelsey on February 9, in 1876. Their son Arthur L. White succeeded W.C. White as secretary/director of the Ellen G. White Estate.

The definitive biography of W. C. White is a doctoral dissertation by Jerry Moon, chair of the Church History Department of the publisher's page).
