Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 117, June 8, 1914-October 1914
White, Andrew Dickson
The peace organizations were active until Austria-Hungary actually declared war on Serbia, and then they shifted their campaign to trying to end hostilities and urging America to preserve its neutrality and to resist attempts to increase America's armaments. This reel contains a number of letters from Europe written during the first months of the war. Letters from Americans show the tenor of domestic opinion at the time, and reveal the strong sympathy of White and other German-educated people for Germany's actions. Reports of the brutality of invading forces in Belgium were diminishing this sympathy. White's revision of his Fiat Money Inflation in France had been privately printed in Toronto and distributed to all cabinet ministers as a guide to Canada's emergency finance measures. There is a collection of correspondence under the date of June tenth relating to the Cornell Women's Club of New York, and its effort to expand the opportunities for women at Cornell.
Digitized microfilm of correspondence and papers from the Andrew Dickson White collection.
