1928-Henry Norris Whitney died March 23, 1977, in Delray Beach, Florida, his retirement home for the past fifteen years. He was a native of Glen Cove, New York, born September 28, 1910, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard F. Whitney and younger brother of Howard F. Whitney, '24. His Sixth Form year brought him membership in the Concordian, the Scientific Association, and the Radio Club, and occasional publication of his verse in the Horae. He received his diploma, magna cum laude. A Princeton graduate with a law degree from Columbia, he was deputy assistant district attorney of New York City under Thomas E. Dewey from 1939 to 1942. After three and a half years of Navy service in the Pacific in World War II, he was affiliated with the Central Intelligence Agency, first in New York City and later in Washington, D. C. From 1954 to 1956, he lived in Cairo, Egypt, as a lawyer for the American section of the international drilling consortium which discovered the Abu Rudeis oil fields in the Sinai. The years of his retirement were not idle. For a time he headed his own Gulf Stream Travel Agency, and during the 1970's he was a commissioner in the town of Gulf Stream, Florida. He was an enthusiastic sailboater and cruiser, played tennis and golf, engaged in international backgammon competition, and was a member of clubs in the New York City, Washington, and Delray Beach areas. Surviving are his wife, Lucinda Whitney, and his brother.
