November 14, 1894
During the twenty-sixth annual convention of the New York State Woman Suffrage Association (NYSWSA), held in Ithaca on Monday through Friday, November 12–16, 1894, suffrage leaders Susan B. Anthony and Anna Howard Shaw toured the nearby Cornell University campus on the afternoon and early evening of Wednesday, November 14, 1894. They were accompanied by Ithaca mayor Clinton D. Bouton and Cornell president Jacob Gould Schurman. The party arrived at Sage College in time for dinner. After the meal, Shaw returned to the Lyceum Theater downtown for the Convention's evening session, at which she made a major address. Meanwhile Anthony lingered at Sage College, engaging its residents in a warm and leisurely discussion.
