One of the advantages of the Whitney Research Group is that we have collected a substantial amount of information from a wide variety of sources and made them available here in our Archives. As you use the information provided here, remember that all of this information was gathered and published by volunteers. As you work on your own research, keep an eye out for anything containing a Whitney name. If you find something, bring it back here - it may not help you, but it'll help someone!
