When ETS was in London 1879-1881, he became friends with R. Miller Christy. The two shared interests in natural history and writing, among other things. Christy opened many doors for Seton, serving as his agent in London as well as introducing him to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
Seton’s first trip to London started in August 1879 on his way to enroll in Art School after winning highest honors in Toronto. He started classes at the Royal Academy of Art in 1881, but didn’t stay as long as expected due to illness.
