Description

Excerpt from Transactions of the Maryland Academy of Science, Vol. 1: 1888-1900 The present Maryland Academy of Sciences was organized by Mr. Philip T. Tyson, Rev. John G. Morris, and several other prominent gentlemen of the city of Baltimore, with a view to the cultivation of a scientific spirit in this community, and to enlarge the boundaries of their own knowledge through comparison and discussion with other students of the sciences. A prominent object of the organization was also to acquire wider and more accurate information respecting the natural resources of the State of Maryland. In May, 1855, several of these gentlemen, who were members of the Maryland Historical Society, formed a "Committee on Natural History," by act of that Society, and met fortnightly in one of its small rooms until the close of the year 1862. On the 22d of January, 1863, a meeting was held at the house of Mr. Philip T. Tyson, and the present Maryland Academy of Sciences was organized by the adoption of a constitution and the election of Mr. Tyson as its President. The meetings of this organization Mere thenceforth held every fortnight at the house of some one of the members, until April, 1867, when they were transferred to the building of the University of Maryland, on Mulberry Street, nearly opposite the Cathedral. In 1867 an act of incorporation was asked from the Legislature of Maryland, and this was granted on the 15th of March of the same year.
