This chapter examines how, on December 23, 1891, Anna Botsford and John Henry Comstock left Ithaca for Stanford University. Henry had very enthusiastic and fine students in all his classes. Meanwhile, Anna gave a lecture on wood engraving, as she had her work with her and plenty of illustrative material. It was her first university lecture and she was gratified at the interest in the art which she aroused. The Comstocks left Stanford at the end of the semester and returned to Cornell University in Ithaca. The chapter then looks at the publication of the Wilder Quarter Century Book in 1893, a memorial to Dr. Burt G. Wilder for his twenty-five years of teaching at Cornell, and the permanent establishment of the Comstock Publishing Company.
