Lester Whitney: WWI Veteran of Pine Plains

Whitney overview

These images and their use are the gift of the Schmidt family of Pine Plains and relate to the items of Corporal Lester Whitney, a friend of the family who entrusted items to their family's care. Image and "Image use" gifts to DCHS are good ways for families to retain personal items while allowing the extraordinary stories of the individuals involved to be shared with a wide audience.
