White, Andrew Dickson
Execution of McKinley's assassin stirred letters from a Quaker on December first and January 19. Max J. Kohler of the American Jewish Historical Society wrote on December first, enclosing some of his articles, and White and Lodge exchanged letters in December about the Bulgarian kidnapping of an American. On the second of December Carnegie announced the formation of the Carnegie Institution, with White among the trustees. On the 30th Jordan wrote, ... our system of fellowships has not been wholesome. He feared that some men holding fellowships had a feeling that science owes them a living. On November 15 Charles H. Hull answered White's opposition to circulating library books. Jacob Cooper wrote on January 21 that his son Lane might be delighted with an inferior position at a place like Cornell. The trustee of the University of Wisconsin to whom White had recommended Adams in 1892, wrote November 29 for his advice in selecting a new man to replace the ailing president. The Kaiser's brother, Prince Henry, planned an official visit to the United States as a gesture of friendship, and elaborate plans were made for his entertainment and safety.
