Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 119, February 16, 1915-June, 1915
White, Andrew Dickson
A number of Cornell matters are touched upon on this reel. White continued his custom of checking up on campus construction and maintenance, and his statue was unveiled in June. White was still idolized by old students, and much in demand as a speaker, although he limited himself to short talks. He spoke at the Vassar commencement at which his daughter received her degree. The peace societies were actively planning for a world court and for a league of the great nations to be formed when peace was achieved. A number of German-Americans wrote White for support, but White's sympathy for Germany was waning, and he declined more and more to express his views publicly or privately.
