Sons of Anarchy
Sons of Anarchy

Thomas "Uncle Tom" Whitney was a SAMCRO member on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Played by an unknown actor, Thomas was one of the First 9. He appears only in a flashback, in the series' first season.



In 1968, Tom was the sixth member to join the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club. He was introduced to the club by Wally Grazer. Wally, having ties to the 'seedier' side of life, knew of Tom and his reputation and felt he would be a valuable asset to the club. Both Tom and Wally had been drifters, living in and around the area and both found the brotherhood of the club enough to make them stay in Charming, California.

Season 1[]


  • The nickname "Uncle Tom" comes from the slang term "Dutch Uncle," a person known to get you anything you wanted, not necessarily legally.
  • He is the last of the First 9 to die prior to the start of the series, being killed in the same year Jax Teller and Opie Winston are patched into the club.
