Andrew Dickson White was an American historian and educator who cofounded Cornell University and served as its first president for nearly two decades. A politician, he had served as state senator in New York. He was later appointed as an American diplomat to Germany and Russia, among other responsibilities.
At Yale, White was a classmate of Daniel Coit Gilman, who would later serve as the first president of Johns Hopkins University. The two were members of the Skull and Bones and remained close friends.
|Skull and Bones||“The Order we are about to investigate [Skull and Bones] had great foresight, back in the 1880s, to create both the American Historical Association and the American Economic Association (most economists were then more historians than analysts) under their terms, with their people and their objectives. Andrew Dickson White was a member of The Order and the first President of the American Historical Association.”||Antony Sutton||2002|
