White, Andrew Dickson
Chief among addresses White was invited to give was the first in a newly-endowed biennial series at the Smithsonian. In a talk in December White took Roosevelt to task for an action erroneously reported in the press. On January first he wrote Mrs. Evans of Roosevelt's response to the matter. Horatio S. White wrote from Florence of his efforts to dispose of the Fiske estate. White joined with other old associates of Alonzo B. Cornell to provide some financial relief for his widow, and a Carnegie note on December fourth shows his kindness in pledging his support. There are several letters from Goldwin Smith, who visited Cornell to lay the cornerstone of the new humanities building named in his honor. He wrote on October 23rd that he feared your Jingo party might push its expansion southwards to the line of the Panama Canal. He said the United States had not really reincorporated the South. No intermarriage, no Equality. No Equality, no Republic. White wrote Gilman that the new building at Cornell would redress the balance which has been somewhat borne down by the scientific and technical side, Hendrik Willem Van Loon offered to write the press of the Hague about securing a proper site for the Peace Palace.
