    Cornell University Autograph and Memorabilia Collection. A research university based in Ithaca, New York, Cornell is the newest of the "Ivy League" universities. Ezra Cornell and Andrew Dickson White, who both valued egalitarianism, science, and education, founded it in 1865. Cornell said at the time "I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study." His dream came true, as Cornell has grown to be one of the top institutes of higher learning in the world with a current enrollment of about 20,000 students. Offered here is a collection of autographed material relating to this university. Just a few of the more than 20 items in this lot are described below:

    Ezra Cornell. Co-Founder. ALS, DS (check), Signature (clipped from a letter).

    Andrew D. White. Co-Founder. TLS (3), AQS, LS (3).

    Souvenir program. Fall Regatta of the Cornell Navy, 1873.

    Jacob Gould Schurman. President of Cornell (1892-1920). TLS (4), Signature.

    Other names represented here are: H. McCandless, William I. Myers, George H. Sabine, Livingston Farrand, and T. F. Crane. Items generally are in fine condition. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
