Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 118, November 1914-February 15, 1915
White, Andrew Dickson
This reel shows the peace organizations trying to plan a third conference at The Hague, but there are also letters from agencies for the relief of the injured and homeless of Europe. There are letters sent from Belgium, England, Germany, and Italy. White made several attempts to get money through to the Belgian scholar Ernest Sarolea, who had written for aid. The reel contains a number of letters from Cornell trustees and professors and from readers of White's books. Several editors wrote asking for articles from White about the war, but although he expressed his views in private letters, notably one on December 30th addressed to Charles Francis Adams, he did not rhoose to make them public. Some correspondents of interest were Elbert Hubbard, Henry Cabot Lodge, Schiff, and Frank O. Smith, a congressman who was backing a proposal to give the Alaskan panhandle to Canada.
