Ron and Eve White were Mr. and Mrs. Motorcycle in Canada, the backbone of the Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA). Ron was newsletter editor (1953-57), and then Eve took over. Ron was also CMA President (1963-66), and Eve was the CMA rep on the Federation Internationale Motorcyclists (FIM). Eve is credited with getting a FIM sanction for the 1967 Canadian Grand Prix for motorcycles at Mosport. Until their deaths in a plane crash in August 1971, Ron wrote for the Globe and Mail, while Eve covered motorsport for the Toronto Star and the Canadian Press.
