Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 111, December 17, 1911-May 14, 1912
White, Andrew Dickson
White's interest was centered in the university at this period, and there are letters from other Cornell trustees as well as from professors. There was a proposal on February fifth for Cornell to construct a reservoir in Varna. The presidential election was a subject of interest early in the year, and there are spirited letters for and against Roosevelt and Taft. On the first of April White was elected to represent Tompkins County at the state Republican convention. The sinking of the Titanic was mentioned by several writers, and there were frequent invitations to conferences and dinners at which White was invited to speak or to appear as an honored guest. Some correspondents on the reel are George C. Boldt, Ralph C. H. Catterall, Curtis Guild, and Jacob Schiff.
