Hello, Norm! Warren Crandall, who is the Whitney's nephew and listed in the "People" section of the WNP cleared up the arson story for me on the Sutro Baths. It was arson, but it was the Whitney's who set it on fire for the insurance. Most of the really valuable stuff had been removed, sold or hidden somewhere. The night watchman didn't do it.
