White, Andrew Dickson
White declined the honor of attending the state and national Republican conventions, but he showed a wide range of interests for a man celebrating his 80th birthday. Jordan wrote in May of his planned field study in the mid-southern states to assess the biological effects of war. In June he wrote of Stanford's success in controlling the use of liquor on the campus and in the town. A representative of the Meneely Bell Company wrote in June and July about the difficulty of playing harmonious bell chords. Hollis Dann wrote that his freshman choral course had been eliminated, so that the training of members of the chapel choir was seriously impaired. Trustee Henry R. Ickelheimer wrote on October 18th that he wanted to have Karl Bitter make a large statue of White to stand on the Cornell campus, and Mrs. Alonzo B. Cornell wrote of her hope to have a statue of Ezra Cornell made. There are letters of interest from Burr, Carnegie, Joseph Grew, and Stephen S. Wise.
