Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 92, April 9, 1904-September 21, 1904
White, Andrew Dickson
White's chief correspondent was the nephew who managed his financial affairs in Syracuse. They discussed real estate holdings, local industry, and railroads. There were continuing exchanges with editors as White's work as a professional writer absorbed much of his time. An April 13th letter from Schurman said that the state legislature had just passed the bill to construct an Agriculture Building at Cornell, and in August there was an exchange with Hewett about the Guiteau gift. This reel holds the final letters from Fiske. In May he wrote that he had sent the Cornell library his Arabic collection, accounts of early French, English, and Dutch travels in Egypt, and on the 13th of August he wrote that he felt the end approaching. On September 18th Horatio S. White wrote that he had a copy of the will and memoranda of Fiske's intentions, and proposed a meeting with White and Schurman. Allan Marquand wrote White a letter of sympathy. There are letters from Roosevelt and Thomas C. Platt in late August, replying to White's suggestions for gubernatorial candidates.
