The derivation and history of the frequently cited aeolian transport model of White are considered in light of the continued replication of an error in the original expression. The error may have escaped notice because the expression is still dimensionally correct and it yields predictions that appear reasonable in comparison with both the predictions of other models and with field data. The incorrect expression has come to be identified as a distinct model. However, the correct formulation of the White model is, in fact, a rearrangement of the Kawamura model with a slightly smaller empirical coefficient
