Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 87, May 22, 1902-August 1902
White, Andrew Dickson
White sent his resignation to President Roosevelt on July 17, and the papers contain numerous documents in the Eisemann case, which White felt strongly about. He then turned his attention to a variety of interests. He and Fiske discussed the education of White's namesake grandson, he wrote the London Times to complain of the mismanagement of the Italian railways, he wrote Roosevelt of his strong feelings about coddling criminals, and he stirred up a hornets nest in Syracuse by questioning the ability of a local artist to produce the Hamilton S. White monument. In educational matters, Butler suggested White for the Rhodes scholarship board, Cornell professors and administrators discussed personnel and building plans, Kuno Francke wrote on July 30 about a project of excavation on Föhr in the North Sea, and White wrote Carnegie on August fourth to urge him to buy the Acton library for the United States and to give the world a temple of peace at The Hague. The proposed reorganization of the Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railroad so perplexed White that he addressed an inquiry to Frick on August seventh. Some prominent men appearing on the reel are Charles Francis Adams, John Hay, Herman Henry Kohlsaat, and Carl Schurz.
