Dick Whitney, Madoff of the 1930s, Topic of Heights Casino Speaker Series Wednesday Evening

“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 katieb@heightscasino.com or call (718) 624-0810. There’s more information in this Eagle story.
