White, Andrew Dickson
The Century Company, whose illustrated magazine had been publishing advance chapters, signed a contract to publish the autobiography, and in a letter on November 13th agreed to pay White a large advance. On October 23rd Angell recalled his early association at Brown with Thurston, and Jordan and Walter C. Kerr wrote of Cornell's attempt to lure two professors from Stanford to head the schools of civil and mechanical engineering. In late January Theodore T. Munger wrote that the aroused students at Yale had sent a petition to the President objecting to Administration policy in Panama. On February eighth Fisher wrote that he had sent Elihu Root a quotation from White on the situation, and assured him that the petition did not represent Yale, but the professors and students that had signed it. At the end of December is a calendar of several weeks of White's outgoing correspondence.
