Longtime Engineering & Mining Journal (E&MJ) contributor Lane White passed away on August 21, 2020. He was 82. White joined E&MJ in 1971 and was first named managing editor in early 1974. He served in that role until early 1983, when he was posted to McGraw-Hill’s London office as the magazine’s European editor, returning to New York and reassuming the role of managing editor in early 1987. At the end of 1987, McGraw-Hill sold E&MJ to Maclean Hunter Publishing, a Chicago-based subsidiary of a leading Canadian publisher. In March 1988, White was named editor of E&MJ. He shepherded the publication through the transition before accepting a new position as director of publications with the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) at the end of 1988. In 1993, White retired from SME and rejoined E&MJ as a freelance writer, contributing monthly to the journal’s news section for nearly another 30 years. In addition to his publishing career, White also supported several associations, including the International Precious Metals Institute and the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum in Leadville, Colorado. During his early years with E&MJ, White traveled extensively, visiting and reporting on some 400 mining operations in 40 countries around the world. His reports on mines and how they operate were models of clarity and organization. He was widely recognized as a valuable source for mining information and will remembered for his life’s role, chronicling mining industry activities through the pages of E&MJ.
