Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney hired Delano & Aldrich to design a new house for him on the site of his grandfather's and subsequently his father's house 'The Manse', on the Whitney estate in Old Westbury in 1941. Whitney was a founder and chairman of the board of Pan-Am Airlines, and co produced some well known films including Gone With the Wind and Rebecca. The house still stands and functions as the clubhouse for the Old Westbury Country Club. Click HERE to see the house on google earth.
