This collection was preserved in the Cornell University Libraries after White's death. There it received the special attention of Professor George Lincoln Burr who was White's pupil, associate and friend. With the estab­lishment of the Collection of Regional History and University Archives, it joined the other manuscript collections relating to the history of the university and was organized and described for the use of scholars by the staff of the collection. The results of this work may be seen in the Report of the Curator and Archivist, 1950-1954, 1954-1958, and in the various unpublished listings maintained in the accession records of the papers.

Much of the correspondence was microfilmed and the microfilm has since been digitized and is available as part of this collection. For an overview of the microfilming project as well as some biographical information on White see the A. D. White Papers at Cornell guide, http://hdl.handle.net/1813/44116
