From 1939 to 1942, Whiting was field engineer for the general contracting firm of Siems Drake-Puget Sound in Seattle, Washington for military projects in Alaska. The U.S. Navy, Bureau of Yards and Docks, Contract NOy-3750, involved construction of naval facilities at Sitka, Kodiak, Unalaska Island, Dutch Harbor, and Sand Point.
