Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 3, July 1857-October 1860
White, Andrew Dickson
Concerned about his approaching marriage and his career decisions, White wrote several long, introspective letters to his mother. He accepted the chair of history at the University of Michigan and, after his marriage in September, set off for Ann Arbor. The papers reflect White’s popularity as a lecturer and as a contributor to the Atlantic Monthly and the New Englander magazines. Some correspondents represented are James T. Fields, George Park Fisher, Henry Philip Tappan, Charles C. Tiffany and Charles Dudley Warner. Informal reports from Professor Frieze kept White abreast of University matters during his absences from Ann Arbor.
