Champion

Edward H. Whitney, 1911 Men's Collegiate Tennis Singles champion (Harvard, Class of 1914).

This photo was probably taken in mid-February, 1915. He participated in the national indoor singles lawn tennis championship at the Seventh Regiment Armory (aka Park Avenue Armory) in New York. He lost in the 5th Round to Theodore Roosevelt Pell (who also eliminated Whitney from the US Open 5 months later).

He competed in the U.S. Open in 1908-1911 and 1913-1916. His best showing was in 1910 when he lost in the Semi-final round.
