Mr. and Mrs. Hobart J. Whitley have just returned from a trip to New York where they spent several weeks. Their daughter, Mrs. Grace Whitley Widenham is in New York this season devoting her time to the study of art and music. The Whitleys have long been identified with the civic and social life of Los Angeles being among the pioneer residents of this city. Mr. Whitley years ago, purchased large tracts of land in Hollywood and expended a good-sized fortune in development, subdividing, etc.… For years the Hollywood mansion of the Whitleys was a show place, but it was moved away a few years ago to make room for a large structure, which now occupies the site of their former home. Their new home on Whitley Heights in Hollywood is a beautiful residence.
