Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 94, January 11, 1905-April 19, 1905
White, Andrew Dickson
The outbreak of rebellion at St. Petersburg focused interest on Russia, and White’s opinions were asked and his articles were sought by popular magazines. There is a cynical letter from a German-American writer on February 13th about the kind of matter American publishers would accept. White received the first copy of his autobiography on March 23rd, and there follows a good deal of comment from old friends about the book, including an amusing letter from R. W. Gilder about the publicity value of White's close call in a railway mishap. Mrs. Holls wrote that she planned to publish her late husband's correspondence, and would like to have both sides of the White-Holls exchange, as it was the most complete collection. White wrote April 19th to Roosevelt to suggest the appointment of Herbert J. Hagerman as Governor of New Mexico. Another old student who had become a judge wrote about an inquiry into the possibility of non-unanimous jury decisions.
