Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 65, January 1896-March 16, 1896
White, Andrew Dickson
The first of this reel contains letters of congratulation on White's appointment to the Venezuela Boundary Commission, followed by applications for jobs associated with the commission’s work and offers of books and geographical information. There are letters about reference works from C. K. Adams, Burr, Henry C. Lea, and Justin Winsor. A letter from Henry Cabot Lodge was dated March 12, and there are many notes from Edward Lee Plumb. There were further arrangements through Burr for the publication of White's book, and there were requests for White to make addresses and write articles. Nicholas Murray Butler sought support at Albany for his education bill. Professor Thurston wrote of his hope to rehabilitate the Naval Engineer Corps by facilitating the entry of engineering school graduates into advanced Navy training, and to provide engineering experiment stations at land-grant colleges. Support was sought for a number of causes, a national social science institution, an Arctic exploration, a plan to stamp out prostitution by building women's hotels, a solution of the Alsace-Lorraine question, and a campaign to deliver the Armenian from the Turk.
