Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 95, April 20, 1905-July 1905
White, Andrew Dickson
Publication of White's autobiography inspired a large number of letters from friends and former students. Some writers pointed out mistakes that had appeared in the books, and others recalled incidents from the past. People who wanted to lay projects before Carnegie wrote White for advice and introduction to the philanthropist. There are several letters refuting a suggestion of White's that Jewish European bankers had made loans to the Russian government. On July fifth a correspondent discussed the individual's right to disobey obsolete laws, and on the fifteenth a District Attorney lamented that our laws were “not constructed to meet the moral obliquity that has developed in commercial matters. Among writers on the reel are Moses Ezekiel, Hadley, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, and Simon Wolf.
