Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 108, November 1910-February 1911
White, Andrew Dickson
This reel includes many letters from White to Carnegie and Mrs. Russell Sage, as White worked for the development of Cornell through his committee of trustees. Carnegie announced on November 14th his plan to give ten millions of dollars to the search for peace, and on December 24th Jordan sent a detailed plan for using the fund. A correspondent on the 23rd suggested that perhaps the best deterrent would be the invention of a weapon capable of destruction of such terrible proportions that countries would have a hard time recruiting fighters. There are letters about proposed buildings and sites, and discussion among some trustees about the advisability of having an audit made of the university's financial records.
