Whitney, Henry Clay (1831-1905).

Whitney came to Urbana, Illinois, in 1854 and practiced law with AL on the Eighth Judicial Circuit for the next seven years. Shortly after his inauguration AL appointed Whitney a paymaster of volunteers, a position he held until March 1865. After the war Whitney practiced law in Kansas and then moved to Chicago, where he was associated with Walter B. Scates, former justice of the Illinois Supreme Court. In 1892 he published a memoir, Life on the Circuit with Lincoln. (Paul M. Angle, "Introduction," in Henry Clay Whitney, Life on the Circuit with Lincoln [1892; rpt., Caldwell, Idaho, 1940]; Francis B.
