Deutsch: Andrew White SJ (* vermutlich 1579 in London; † vermutlich am 27. Dezember 1656 nach julianischem Kalender in Hampshire) war ein englischer Jesuit, der eine führende Rolle bei der Gründung der Kolonie Maryland spielte. Für die amerikanische Literatur- und Geschichtswissenschaft ist er als Chronist der ersten Jahre der Kolonie von Bedeutung, für die Kirchengeschichte für seine Bemühungen um die Indianermission. So wird er häufig mit dem Beinamen „Apostel von Maryland“ versehen.
English: Andrew White, S.J. (1579 – December 27, 1656) was an English Jesuit missionary who was involved in the founding of the Maryland colony. He was a chronicler of the early colony, and his writings are a primary source on the land, the Native Americans of the area, and the Jesuit mission in North America. For his efforts in converting and educating the native population, he is frequently referred to as the "Apostle of Maryland." He is considered a forefather of Georgetown University, and is memorialized in the name of its White-Gravenor building, a central location of offices and classrooms on the university's campus
