Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 104, November 11, 1908-April 1909
White, Andrew Dickson
This reel covers months White spent, for the most part, in Ithaca and shows his involvement with various community affairs. He wrote the Cornell chimesmaster to suggest the kind of music he should play, and the way he should play it. He communicated with several organ-builders, and listened to a number of organs to assess their merits. He was also engaged in his unofficial role of fund-raiser, writing to and visiting potential donors. There are letters about writers proposed as members of the Academy of Arts and Letters, and others about candidates for the Hall of Fame. There are proposals for legislation on teachers' pensions and for the management of state archives. There are numerous letters from early friends and students who had read his books, and many notes about his Yale classmates. There are also plans to place memorials to members of the earliest Cornell faculty on campus.
