White, Andrew Dickson
The peace organizations were very active during this period, and were looking ahead to a Third Hague Conference. The Lake Mohonk Conference, the New York Peace Society, and the World Peace Foundation are represented, along with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. White's railroad holdings suffered a serious decline, and there are letters about them from Henry Clews, Henry L. Higginson, and Ira Place. Some Cornell-related topics are the finishing of the Bailey Hall organ, the selection of an artist to paint a portrait of Mrs. Russell Sage, and the reports of progress by Karl Bitter on the statue he was making of White. Attempts were made to set up a recording appointment in New York to preserve Mr. White's voice for posterity. A May second letter proposed that friends of Goldwin Smith should put together a book to undo the injury done Smith's character by Haultain's Life and Opinions of Goldwin Smith.
