Whitney opened a mu­sic store in To­le­do, Ohio, in 1860. He be­came part­ners with Will­iam H. Curr­i­er in 1870, and in 1888, they formed the company of Whit­ney and Cur­ri­er.

From 1867–81, Whit­ney pub­lished the per­i­od­i­cal Whit­ney’s Mus­ic­al Guest. He was al­so the prin­ci­pal pub­lish­er for Will­iam Og­den, who event­u­al­ly be­came the su­per­in­tend­ent of mu­sic in the To­le­do public schools.

Some time be­tween 1890 and 1896, Whit­ney re­tired and moved to Cal­i­for­nia.
