George White (August 21, 1872 – December 15, 1953) was the 52nd Governor of Ohio.

Born in Elmira, New York, White attended Princeton College. After mining in the Klondike, White settled in Marietta, Ohio to drill for oil.

After serving in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1905 to 1908, White was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1910, serving from 1911 to 1915. White lost a re-election bid in 1914, but won election again in 1916 – though he then lost again in 1918. White served as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1920 to 1921.

He then returned to politics again in 1930, serving two two-year terms as governor from 1931 to 1935. He was not renominated in 1934 due to intemperate actions against the working classes which included meeting a delegation of workers that wanted to talk to him about how to pay property taxes. In 1940, White ran again for the Democratic nomination for governor but lost to Martin L. Davey.
