Theodore “Ted” White was a paleontologist whose career spanning more than twenty years at Dinosaur National Monument who supervised the development of the in situ display of fossils at the quarry. White was the first paleontologist with a Ph.D. to be hired by Dinosaur National Monument, writing a publication on the Permian tetrapod Seymouria, as a student of renowned paleontologist Alfred Romer. He supervised the reliefing of fossils at the quarry and made a reality of the in-situ exhibit idea that had been discussed since the establishment of the Monument. He was also involved in discussions regarding design plans for the Quarry Visitor Center, and the content of exhibits to be housed there. Ted White’s contributions to Dinosaur National Monument were a continuation of the renowned paleontological tradition there, as well as establishing the future of what the quarry was to become.
