This chapter examines the American Association for the Advancement of Science (A. A. A. S.) meeting in Toronto in the last week in December of 1921. On the evening of December 28, a great surprise came to John Henry Comstock—a dinner was given in his honor. It was held in Annersley House, Victoria College, of the University of Toronto and there were sixty-nine present, many of them Henry's old students and all of them personal friends. The entomological meetings were excellent; the Comstocks listened to the scientific papers by many of their old students. On May 6, 1923, Anna Botsford Comstock was elected as one of the twelve greatest women in America by the League of Women Voters. The chapter then looks at the Comstocks' voyage to the West.
