A native of Massachusetts, Whitehouse moved to Spokane in 1906. He worked for a time in the office of John K. Dow and then formed a partnership with George Keith. He then left Spokane to study architecture at Cornell University. He graduated from Cornell in 1913.[3] With fellow Cornell architecture graduate Ernest V. Price, he formed a partnership, the firm Whitehouse & Price, in 1913.[1] He was elected to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in 1959 and won the Allied Art Award in 1961.[3]

In September 1974, Whitehouse died at age 90 in a Spokane convalescent center.[3] Whitehouse's papers, including original drawings, are housed at the Eastern Washington State Historical Society.[6][8]
