Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 21, April 1876-December 1876
White, Andrew Dickson
Among Cornell topics on this reel are the housing of faculty members in Sage College, the possible admission of a divorced woman, and the transfer of duties from President White to Vice-President Russel after White's request for leave of absence. Whites talk, Paper Money in France, delivered before the Union League Club in New York, was also given in Washington at the urging of Morrill and Garfield. The printing of this speech and first publication of 'The Warfare of Science brought a wide response. He made frequent visits to Philadelphia during the summer, where he served as a judge at the Centennial Exposition. Several people suggested White as the Republican candidate for governor, and Lewis Henry Morgan volunteered to run with him for Lieutenant Governor. A May 20 letter from Senator Aaron Augustus Sargent dealt with Chinese immigration, one on August 18 from James W. Beekman supported the concept of American public schools, and on August 24 Henry Benjamin Whipple answered White's note encouraging his work for justice to the red men. Historian Charles Kendall Adams and White exchanged several letters in the fall concerning a proposed bibliography of modern history, and in October White sailed for London and Paris to rest and renew friendships. Some correspondents were James Julius Chambers, Roscoe Conkling, Rutherford B. Hayes, and Samuel F. Miller.
