Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 66, March 17, 1896-June 24, 1896
White, Andrew Dickson
White's work with the boundary commission continues on this reel. On April 10 Burr sent a lengthy criticism of White's report to the commission with suggested changes. Cuba was the subject of a Goldwin Smith letter of April seventh, and on March 22 George Kennan wrote a long letter about the writing of his book, Siberia and the Exile System. Publication of White's two-volume work, A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom, inspired many letters of thanks and some of disapproval. His interest in crime and crime statistics brought letters from Frederick H. Wines and others who wanted further statistics and from editors who wanted articles from White on the subject. John Russell Young wrote on June 13 that he had suggested White as a running mate to McKinley, and on the 23rd Holls reported that his personal campaign to make White Secretary of State was in full swing. At Ithaca, White joined William H. Sage in a plan to replace the steel bridge at Cascadilla with a stone arch and to build an entrance gate to the university at Eddy Street.
