Springfield, Mass., Oct. 21, 1850; m. at Charlestown, Oct. 18, 1882, Lottie Jane BYAM, b. Sept. 19, 1854. He was graduated from Harvard college in 1871, the second scholar in his class. He obtained a fellowship and took a post-graduate course at Harvard, where he obtained the degree of doctor of philosophy. He then studied at Leipsic [sic], in Ger- many, for something over a year. On his return he entered the Harvard law school where he was graduated in 1876. He then entered the office of Jewell, Field & Shepard, and afterwards had a brief experience in the actual preparation and trial of cases, both in the office of the city solicitor of Boston and that of the United States district-attorney. In all these places he showed remarkable legal ability and faith- fulness, and he became the partner of ex-Gov. GASTON in 1879, when the latter re- sumed practice after the expiration of his term of office. This partnership continued until recently, when the condition of Mr. Whitney's health compelled him to abandon work. He was in every way a marked man in his profession; he was distinctively a scholar, and, combined with profound learning, had a mind analytical and logical, and unusual accuracy and grace of statement. His integrity, as a man and a prac- titioner, was without blemish; and his success in the trial of cases, both with the court and the jury, was remarkable. He was 42 years old at the time of his death. He was married to Miss Lottie J. BYAM, daughter of Mr. E. G. BYAM, of Charlestown who, with three children, survives him. He was a member of the Harvard Congre- gational church in Brookline. He d. Sept 14, 1892; res. Brookline, Mass. 9382a. i. CHARLES BEALE, b July 9, 1883. 9383a. ii. MARY LEAVITT, b.
