Andrew Dickson White papers microfilm reel 96, August 1905-December 7, 1905
White, Andrew Dickson
In early August a churchman who had characterized White's Warfare of Science as a malignant attack on Christianity was surprised by his support of Sabbath observance. A writer on the ninth enclosed copies of letters from leading Jewish bankers about Russian loans. In November Ezekiel referred to massacres in Russia, and there was a report that de Witte had resigned. Among letters referring to Cornell matters are those showing White's continuing efforts toward building an auditorium, to securing music for the chapel choir, and to improving the McGraw chimes. On November 27th an Ithaca lawyer, who had spent his lifetime rehabilitating young lawbreakers, referred to the George Junior Republic. On the 17th Franz Boas wrote of plans for the Germanistic Society of America to promote the study of German civilization. George Wharton James wrote that he had reviewed the autobiography in the Craftsman, and would send White copies of his books on the West.
