This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Sculpting in stone, he completed his first work in 1962 and a decade later was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America. He strives to capture the spirit of the persevering American in his work, and his monumental sculpture, Out of the Mystic Past was the first outdoor sculpture installed at the Cowboy Artists of America Museum in Kerrville, Texas.

He grew up in Ohio, where he went to art school for a short time but before becoming a professional artist, White served in the Marines, played semi-pro football and worked in insurance sales.

He discovered his love for sculpting in stone after a trip to Colorado and moved to Loveland in the late 1970s.  Several of his sculptures are owned by the city and installed around town, including Winning the Iron Shirt, the large Native American sculpture set at the U.S. 287 split near North 19th Street.

He helped found the Sculpture in the Park show along with other local sculptors Dan Ostermiller, George Lundeen, George Walbye, and Hollis Williford.  Started in 1984, the event grew to be one of the largest sculpture shows in the world.

Fritz White died on Saturday, April 10, 2010 in Loveland, Colorado.

Biography from Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, VII:
Fritz White was born January 14, 1930 in Milford, Ohio near Cincinnati. The Little Miami River, which borders Cincinnati on the east, was a main thoroughfare north and south for the Shawnee tribes that were settled throughout Ohio.

Artifacts of the Shawnees, Miamis, Mingos and even mound builders were common to the area.  From these artifacts, his interest in the Native American and their mythology was kindled. “As a kid, I used to think that when I followed a path along the river that the Shawnee had been there only moments ago, that Boone, and Kenton, and maybe the young surveyor G, Washington came this way.” Perhaps my need to do the west came from all the stories I had heard and read growing up.  My interest and feeling has grown dramatically with research into the day-to-day lives of those builders of America.  The thrill comes from exploring one small facet of western life after another.

Fritz shared his talents with others, teaching numerous educational sessions with young artists and conducting sculpture classes for the visually impaired.

In addition to being a member of the Cowboy Artists of America, White was a member of the National Sculpture Society.

Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Fritz was born January 14, 1930 in Milford, Ohio near Cincinnati. The little Miami River, which borders Cincinnati on the east, was a main thoroughfare north and south for the Shawnee tribes that were settled throughout Ohio. Artifacts of the Shawnee, Miami, Mingo and even mound builders were common to the area. From these artifacts, his interest in the Native American and their mythology was kindled.

“As a kid, I used to think when I followed a path along the river that the Shawnee had been there only moments ago. Perhaps my need to do the “Indian” came from all the stories I heard and read growing up. That interest and feeling has grown dramatically with my research into the day-to-day life of the American Indian. The thrill comes from exploring one small facet of life after another. . . .We as observers, have barely begun to tell their story. We will never be able to tell the entire saga of the thousands of years of their civilization.
