Graveside services for Paul H. White, a retired Army officer and architect who was a veteran of both World Wars, will be held at 1 p.m. tomorrow in Woodlawn Cemetery, 2130 Woodlawn Drive.

Mr. White, 92, died Monday at his home in Towson of complications after surgery.

He retired as an Army major in 1953. He had served in the Coast Artillery during the last year of World War I and in the Corps of Engineers during World War II, when he was stationed in England, France, Belgium and Germany. After World War II he helped the State Department dispose of surplus property in Greenland, Newfoundland and Labrador. His decorations included the Belgian Order of Leopold II.

In 1945, while stationed in Brussels, Belgium, he met Pauline Louise Saublens, whom he later married.

Between 1935 and the beginning of World War II, he was assistant to the executive director of the American Institute of Architects in its Washington headquarters. He had earlier worked in architectural offices in Baltimore and New York.

Born in Roanoke, Va., but reared in Baltimore, he attended City College. He graduated from St. John's College in 1918.

After World War I he studied drafting at the old Maryland Institute on Market Place and was a teaching assistant there. He then studied architecture at the School of Fine Arts of the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated in 1924.

In addition to his wife, his survivors include four nephews, Glenn H. Chase of Rehoboth Beach, Del., Edgar M. Chase of Clinton, Richard E. White of Baltimore and R. J. White of Silver Spring; two nieces, Frances O'Donnell of New York and Mary Jane Lynagh of Philadelphia; and three grandnephews and three grandnieces.
