Personal InformationEdit

IntroductionEdit

First appeared in Naked in Death when she answered Eve's call to Jack Whitney; Eve interrupted one of Mrs. Whitney's famous dinner parties (February 13, 2058).[3]

DescriptionEdit

  • As always, she was perfectly groomed: her cosmetics were carefully and expertly applied, and her pale blond hair was coiffed in a swept-back style that suited her attractive face;[4] she is trim.[5]
  • She has pretty hands and wears a wedding ring.[6]
  • Anger suited her.[7]
  • Eve made reference to Mrs. Whitney's "perfect ass."[8]

PersonalityEdit

  • Anna Whitney hated solitude.[9]
  • She was a traditionalist and unashamed of it.[10]
  • Eve always considered Mrs. Whitney a mild pain in the ass.[11]
    • The commander's wife tended to intimidate Eve with her starched manner, cool delivery, and blue blood.[12]
  • She surprised Eve when, at Amaryllis Coltraine's memorial, she took both of Eve's hands in her own as it was out of character.[13]

Family and HistoryEdit

  • She had raised her children well, choosing the profession of mother over a teaching career. It wasn't the state salary for full-time parents that had swayed her. It had been the thrill of being in on each and every stage of her children's childhood development.[14]
    • Whenever she could, she filled the house with her grandchildren. In the evenings, she filled it with dinner parties.[15]

Interesting FactsEdit

  • She had been good, close friends with Cicely Towers – "like sisters".[16]
    • She and Jack Whitney are godparents to Cicely's son, David Angelini. She was devastated by Cicely's murder.[17]
    • Anna said Cicely was a good friend to her and her husband. Cicely's children were staying with the Whitney's as Marco Angelini's home held so many memories and they wanted to keep the media away.[18]
  • A small, private memorial (of more than a hundred guests) for Cicely Tyson was held in the Whitney's home.[19]
    • David made four deposits of fifty thousand dollars into his personal credit account over the last four months; the final one was keyed in two weeks before Cicely was murdered.[20] Anna Whitney transferred the funds to his New York bank and he flipped it over into his personal account in Milan. He then withdrew it, in cash, hard bills, from an AutoTell on Vegas II. The two hundred thousand cut Anna's principal in half (the money was given between February and May, 2058).[21]
    • Anna explained that David was in trouble, that the portion of Angelini Exports that he oversaw was in temporary upheaval so she gave him the loan so that he could get a new project off the ground. Anna said David's parents both agreed not to help him.[22]
  • She is keen on fashion and décor.[23]
  • Anna gave Jack a scarlet fish in a fluted bowl with smooth, colored stones shimmering in the base. The bowl sat on the right corner of his desk and the fish circled in the bowl. Eve said it was fast and that it would probably wear itself out and die within a couple of weeks. Whitney replied, "Your mouth to God's ear."[24]
  • She is also friends with Shelly Pettibone.[25]
  • Occasionally got 'tune-ups' from Dr. Will at the Icove Center.[26]
  • Mrs. Whitney enjoys opera.[27]
  • Anna and Carol MacMasters serve on some committees together, and often spend time with each other. They socialize.[28]
    • Anna told Eve, "I don't always like your style, Lieutenant. ... I often find you abrasive and difficult to understand. But Carol and Jonah are dear friends, and Deena lovely in every way. If Jonah hadn't requested you to lead this investigation, I'd have used every influence I had with your commander to get you so assigned. Get the bastard. You get the bastard."[29]
