The Whitney Research Group (WRG) is an informal group of individuals interested in the scholarly research of Whitney families around the world and throughout history. It was formed in April, 1996. This group is generally considered to be those individuals on the WHITNEY-L mailing list as well as those with accounts on this site. The WRG is a group whose members actively seek Whitney data and whenever found, submit it to the mailing list and/or to this site in hopes that it will be of interest to someone else. In this way, we are collectively building a much better understanding of the various families.
