Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 124, August 1917-June 1918
White, Andrew Dickson
This reel covers the last months of White's active life. His opinion was sought on new books, and his name was stilI valued on the letterhead of various organizations. The European war was the chief influence of the time, and there are letters and reports from a number of organizations raising funds for war victims, displaced persons, and for American servicemen. There was even a project under way that sent ambulances to the Italian front named for American poets. There were a number of progress reports from the Ithaca War Chest. There was mention of a tendency among schools to drop German from the curriculum, and Professor Dann wrote about the advisability of excluding music of living German composers from the summer recitals. There are letters from George Sarton about his difficulty in finding a professorship in the history of science.
