His idol was Professor Edward Edwards, head of the department of chemistry, who was universally known as "Encore."
This evening Encore was giving one of his small and popular At Home’s.
I wonder if Encore Edwards knows as much as I thought he did?
On the campus he met that jovial historian of chemistry, Encore Edwards, and begged, "Say, Professor, tell me, is there any value for a doctor in organic chemistry?"
Ordinarily Encore would have suggested, with amiable malice, that Gottlieb was a "crapehanger" who wasted time destroying the theories of other men instead of making new ones of his own.
And the great god Sondelius had slain Dean Silva, as Silva had slain Gottlieb, Gottlieb had slain "Encore" Edwards the playful chemist, Edwards had slain Doc Vickerson, and Vickerson had slain the minister’s son who had a real trapeze in his barn.
There are no more uses of "encore" in the book.
