White, Andrew Dickson
During this period White was engaged in planning for campus buildings and in resolving an administrative crisis in the College of Agriculture. Plans for Risley Hall had to be modified when all bids were in excess of the Sage gift. White wrote a long letter to Robert H. Treman on July 29th on the subject of men's dormitories, and there were letters exchanged about the new home economics buildings and auditorium. White himself began an extensive addition to his campus home in order to leave it better adapted to house future university presidents. There were a number of letters from Bailey and from alumni of the agriculture college, as well as from trustees that worked with White to keep Bailey at Cornell. There were letters about crime statistics, initiative and referendum legislation, and organizations to protest Russia's failure to accord Jews the status of United States citizens. White and his nephews wrote many letters about the division of real estate he and his brother held jointly in Syracuse.
