Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 70, March 8, 1897-April 28, 1897
White, Andrew Dickson
Diplomatic and consular appointments dominate the correspondence on this reel. White was appointed to Berlin in late March, and applications for the posts of first and second secretary came in large numbers. Under the date of April 21 White prepared a memorandum on the principal applicants. Grover Cleveland wrote an interesting letter on March 20 in answer to a letter from White. There were notes from Ingersoll and Villard, and a strange proposal on April second to make Germany a republic by paying off Wilhelm II with honors and money. A man interested in the Academy of Music in Ithaca sought White's support of a reorganization of the school, Sedley Taylor wrote that Trinity College, Cambridge, was considering coeducation, and Yale tried to lure Moses Coit Tyler away from Cornell.
