[APG Public List] "caucasian" instead of "white"

Reading the "Declaration of the Intention" of a woman from  1917 she states:

color white
complexion fair

I read that:  
color of skin: white
color of face: "fair" = bright?
Or what is the difference? And why is there a difference?

>From a friend I learned that today they take "caucasian" instead of "white" 
 for color of skin.

Can someone tell me the reason for that?

Thanks  a lot in advance.
