Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 101, April 11, 1907-September 15, 1907
White, Andrew Dickson
White's interest in various Cornell matters is reflected in letters about recasting the McGraw chimes and by correspondence with organ-builders, artists, and architects. Under the date of May first is a recommendation from Frank Barton that cadet corps officers above freshmen be given free tuition. There are a number of letters about Huffcut' s suicide and suggested memorials to him. Wilder wrote on the last of April urging White to set the record straight on Harvard's lagging behind Michigan and Cornell in liberalizing the curriculum. There are letters about a plan to establish a statutory university graduate school at George Washington University, and in June a writer suggested White write a biography of Gerrit Smith to remind people that slavery was the issue of the Civil War. There is evidence of White's increased attention to his investments following a market decline. Among names of interest on the reel are Lyman Abbott, Melville Stone, and Van Loon. A letter from the widow of Eastman Johnson on May 25th lists the works left in his studio.
