Incoming Correspondence, 1879-1942 [subseries]:
Letters received by Schurman range from the time of his student days abroad to notes of condolence received by family members upon his death in 1942. A few letters from Schurman to his recipients were retained in this file. Schurman's correspondents in this selection of letters include major philosophers, Presidents of the United States, family members, mentors, colleagues, students, admirers, and international diplomats and heads of state. The entire breadth of Schurman's professional careers and aspects of his family life are illuminated in these letters. His fundraising for the University of Heidelberg is clearly outlined, as well as his strong advocacy of Philippine independence, his close interest in German political affairs, and his personal relationship with several international scholars and political leaders. Other topics include the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and international anti-imperialist movements. Philippine, Chinese, Japanese, and German affairs figure prominently in these letters. The letters from his presidency refer to Cornell University administration and relations with the Trustees. Major correspondents include William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Warren G. Harding, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, David Starr Jordan, Sao-ke Alfred Sze, Gustav Stresemann, Frank H. Hiscock, Mynderse Van Cleef, Johannes Hoops, John D. Rockefeller, George Eastman, Sergio Osmeña, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Andrew Seth Pringle-Pattison.

The letterbook copy impressions of letters written by Schurman as President of Cornell University profile both his personal character and formal manner in the execution of his administrative duties. A few letters of Charles Kendall Adams commence the letterbooks, and Acting Presidents are the signatories of several letters, notably T. F. Crane 1912 and 1913 when Schurman was serving as Ambassador to Greece, and Acting President Albert W. Smith in 1920 and 1921. Volumes 1-50 are letters signed by President Schurman; volumes 51-80 are letters signed by President Schurman's Secretary on behalf of the Office of the President.

In addition to the routine administrative subjects in the correspondence that devolved typically from the Office of the President of Cornell, topics include the 1903 typhoid epidemic in Ithaca, the establishment of the Carnegie Fund, the Leo Frank case, the Chi Psi fire, the construction of several new campus buildings, co-education and women students, African-American students on campus, and relations with Ithaca, New York. Other topics and concerns in the letterbooks include the president's relations with faculty, college benefactors, and presidents of other universities; also, fraternities and campus housing, foreign students, religious education, and Sage Chapel preachers. President Schurman made several appearances before alumni groups throughout the nation, and correspondence to this effect is plentiful. Cornell's relations with other universities, other associations of American universities, and educational societies are mentioned frequently. The element of publicity is suggested by Schurman's many letters to newspapers, magazines, and publishers. The university's role in World War I is shown as the president assists in the mobilization of resources and facilitates the university's preparation of its students to become soldiers; letters to the United States War Department are numerous. The development of the New York State College of Agriculture and the New York State Veterinary College at Cornell is referred to in many letters, as well as a proposed School of Forestry. Schurman corresponded frequently with Andrew Carnegie, and with officials of the Carnegie Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation. He also wrote many letters to immediate family members of Ezra Cornell.

Principal recipients of letters include Lyman Abbott, Liberty Hyde Bailey, Frank Barton, C. E. Bennett, Charles H. Blood, George Boldt, G. P. Bristol, J. E. Creighton, L. M. Dennis, W. A.

Series IV. Clippings, 1892-1942 [series]:
A comprehensive project involved members of the staff of the President's Office and others in chronicling Schurman's career. In some cases, a newspaper printing of a speech delivered by Schurman is the only copy of the speech to be found in the collection. Caricatures of Schurman as printed in newspaper stories are in the clippings, as well as an account of his touting of Charles Evans Hughes for the Presidency of the United States, and his vigorous promotion of Philippine independence. Similarly, affairs in other parts of the world, and Schurman's interest in or involvement with these, can be traced in the clippings.
