“Not Dick Whitney!” were President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s words on hearing that fellow patrician (though not fellow Democrat) Richard Whitney had been arrested and charged with perpetrating a massive fraudulent scheme that would prefigure Bernard Madoff’s even greater scheme in recent years. On Wednesday evening, November 6, Brooklyn Heights resident Malcolm MacKay, author of Impeccable Connections: The Rise and Fall of Richard Whitney will be featured at the Heights Casino Speaker Series, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Casino, 75 Montague Street, near the corner of Hicks. This event is free and open to all. An RSVP is not required, but encouraged: e-mail email@example.com or call (718) 624-0810. There’s more information in this Eagle story.
