Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 11, June 16, 1871-February 15, 1872
White, Andrew Dickson
Cornell University topics on this reel are the planning of Sage College for women, discussion of the land scrip sale, the building of White's mansion on the university grounds, and the disciplining of students and faculty members. A letter on September 16 from Isaac Edwards Clark suggested White for Secretary of State if Hamilton Fish resigned. A faction of the Republican Party charged that White manipulated the state convention to further his political ambitions, but his friends defended him privately and through the press. In January and February White was absent from Ithaca and received almost daily dispatches from Vice-President Russel. Plans for the founding of Sage College were adopted at the semi-annual trustees meeting at Albany on February 13.
