Charles Richard White (c.1825 - 20 November 1889) was an auctioneer and educationist.

A resident of Kennington Cross, he offered himself for election as a Church of England candidate for the Lambeth Division when the first London School Board elections were held in 1870. He failed to win a seat. Six years later he again contested Lambeth, on this occasion as a "Vestry" candidate. He was again unsuccessful.

On his third attempt he was elected to the school board as an "Independent Ratepayer" in 1879, and was re-elected in 1882. At the 1885 school board elections the Lambeth Division was divided into two parts: East and West. White stood in the West Division, but failed to hold his seat.

He died in Clapham in 1889, aged 64.
