Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 69, December 11, 1896-March 7, 1897
White, Andrew Dickson
At this period the Venezuela Commission was finishing its work, for Great Britain had agreed to arbitration. McKinley was appointing his cabinet, and although White was not named Secretary of State, he received numerous requests for recommendation to a variety of positions. There are a number of letters from friends in St. Petersburg, and others dealing with Russian matters. On January 25 Wines wrote further about murder statistics, and on the 25th a writer complained of the injustice of Southern mobs toward Negroes and of the miscarriage of justice that unscrupulous lawyers could induce. Among the colleges writing were the State University of California, Pennsylvania State College, Harvard, and Yale. The Bishop of Worcester wrote on March third, and on the fourth the English quaker John Bellows wrote regarding White's Warfare of Science. Some other famous names that appear on the reel are Charles Francis Adams, Chauncey M. Depew, Charles W. Eliot, and Franklin B. Sanborn.
