Whitney Benefits hosted a presentation Wednesday night at the Sheridan College CTEL where local Author Sam Western presented a brief history of the life story of Edward A. Whitney. Earlier this summer Whitney Benefits released two books, both authored by Western, that take a look at Whitney's life history, as well as the history of Whitney Benefits itself.
Western explains what surprised him the most while researching Whitney.
During the presentation, Western talked a little bit about how Whitney become so transfixed with working on his will.
Both books, Solace in Numbers – A Biography of Edward A Whitney, and The History of Whitney Benefits can be purchased in Sheridan at Sheridan Stationary Books and Gallery and at the Sheridan County Museum.
