Cornell University Press

Cornell University Press America's First University Press Cornell University Press was established in 1869, giving it the distinction of being the first university press to be established in the United States, although it was inactive for several decades between 1890 and 1930.

Since early 1993, the acquisitions, editorial, production, and marketing departments of the Press have been located in Sage House, where the staff keeps company with the house's carved bats and stained-glass birds. The images you see throughout this website are taken from actual stained-glass windows at Sage House. Sage House was built in the 1880s by Henry Williams Sage, then chairman of the University's Board of Trustees, and was designed by William Henry Miller, the architect later responsible for many important buildings on the Cornell campus. Contractor and chief mason were master craftsmen who had come to Ithaca from England, bringing old-world skills to the construction of the early campus.

"This time Kirwan's fiction was inspired by the tragic events of 9-11-2001. I like to call the Irish-American's writing "reality fiction" because while his plots are imaginatively original he draws his inspiration from actual historical events or real people. His storylines may not have actually happened but they easily could have."
