Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 105, May 1909- October 21, 1909
White, Andrew Dickson
Much of the correspondence on this reel is about White's published writings and his defense of them. He was apprehensive about his memory and the authority of his source material for a book of short biographies he was preparing. He sent Thayer his Thomasius proofs to correct, and mailed the manuscripts of his Bismarck and Stein articles to Bavaria to have Evans check them over. There are interesting letters from George Whitney Moore, George Barlow Penny, and George H. Haynes as well as those on Cornell matters from Fred Asa Barnes, Charles H. Blood, Goldwin Smith, and Charles H. Tuck. An unusual family item was the report on September 13 that White's nephew Ernest had won the American Derby with a horse he had bought for $200 and trained himself.
