An old book found in a second-hand shop, titled "Official Record of the Proceedings, Twenty-Seventh Convention, Supreme Lodge Knights of Pythias," held in Denver, Colorado, August, 1912, lists C. S. Whitney of Montana as a member in 1906-08. He was a "Supreme Representative." From the same source, the second-hand shop we found "The Missouri Alumni in Journalism." for 1938, which lists Edward William Whitney of the New York Daily News, 1936-7; Montgomery Ward and Co., 1937; Burry Biscuit Co., 1937; Schnefel Bros. Corp., 1938 - Address - 292 Melrose Place, South Orange, NJ. Robert Clark Whitney, BJ 1933. Address - 609 Philtower, Tulsa, Okla. One of the most interesting finds of our trip to the second-hand shop was an old copy of Sunset Magazine which we found was published, originally, as a monthly periodical of the Passenger Department, Southern Pacific Railroad, 4 Montgomery Street, San Francisco, California. It was one dollar a year in 1903-041 At ten cents a copy, it was a bargain! The copy of Sunset for this particular year included a wonderful story by J. Parker Whitney, on "Oranges of Sierra Foothills." The oranges are not really the interesting subject of the article, but the fact that there was an enormous ranch run by this family near Loomis, California. One picture of the Whitneys shows them on the golf links, at the Whitney place near Rocklin, California. The estate was called "The Oaks," and was in Placer County. There was an artifical reservoir with two million gallons capacity for the irrigation of the oranges. It was a small "Hearst-type" operation, with a "country home" rather than a castle!
