Ted White has been a prolific contributor to science fiction fanzines since the early '50s, and won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer in 1968.

He produced his first fanzine, Zip, in 1953. During the 1950s, Ted White was also well known in Science Fiction Fandom as one of the "Balcony Insurgents" of the 1956 NYCon II Worldcon, who occupied a balcony along with Ron Ellik, Dick Eney, Boyd Raeburn, Larry Stark, Bob Tucker, Jean Young and Andy Young, rather than pay an exorbitant price to hear talks in the banquet hall.

In 1956-57, he co-edited Stellar with Larry Stark, followed by Void when he joined the founding editors, Greg and Jim Benford in 1960. Other fanzines he's published include Gambit, Null-F (for FAPA), Minac with Les Gerber, Egoboo with John D. Berry, Crank with Rob Hansen, egoscan and, with Dan Steffan, Pong and BLAT!.

He was a regular columnist in Yandro, published by Buck Coulson and Juanita Coulson, and Richard E. Geis' Psychotic and Science Fiction Review. He also has been active in numerous fan events, such as organizing the 1967 World Science Fiction Convention in New York as co-chairman.

In 1994, he and Dan Steffan won the FAAn Award for Best Fanzine for BLAT!.

As of 2012, he is still active on several of the fandom- and fanzine-oriented electronic mailing lists.
