About

Ran an import and export business.

From ?The Los Angeles Herald?, September 2, 1902: ?George Whitney To Retire. Tennis Champion Must Abandon The Game. Lovers of tennis and followers of the game will be truly sorry to learn that George F. Whitney, singles champion of the Pacific Coast, and half-owner of the title in doubles, is likely to be forced to retire from the game and will not be able to even defend his title at San Rafael this week.

?The San Francisco newspaper man/athlete has developed what the doctor chooses to call ?athletic heart?, from overworking at tennis and the excitement of automobiling. The particular form in which Whitney?s malady has manifested itself ? angina pectoris ? is one of the most painful and more dangerous cardiac affections, and it requires absolutely that he refrain from any undue excitement on penalty of an excruciatingly painful if not instantly fatal heart spasm.?
