Obituary: Former Texas governor Mark White, 77, noted for his support of public education in Texas, has died. He died of a heart attack.

Mr. White, a Democrat, was the attorney general of Texas from 1979 to January 1983, when he became governor after defeating William P. Clements, the Republican incumbent. (Mr. Clements returned to defeat him in 1986.)

In his four years in office, Mr. White won legislation requiring high school students to pass basic skills tests to graduate; establishing competency tests for public-school teachers and raising their salaries; capping class sizes in elementary schools; and increasing taxes by $4 billion to finance it all. Facing an economic downturn caused by plummeting oil prices, he also tried to wean the state off its dependence on oil and lure other industries to Texas.
