|Superintendent Tells of Whitney Estate
Old Westbury, Long Island - Thomas Griffin,
Superintentdent of the estate of Mrs. Harry
Payne Whitney, here, tells of the attempt by
two hold-up bandits to stage a robbery of the
Wheatley Hills mansion and grounds of the Aunt
of little Gloria Vanderbilt. Driven off in a
hand-to-hand encounter with Griffin, and his
daughter, Mrs. A. H. Johnson, the intruders fled
and are now being sought throughout the entire
east by police. Mr. Griffin is quoted as
minimizing the report that the intruders really
intended to kidnap Gloria Vanderbilt, the 11
year-old heiress over whose custody Mrs.
Whitney and Mrs. Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt, the
child's mother, have fought a long legal battle,
but the Whitney Estate is now under heavy
guard. - February 4, 1936
