The Smithsonian Institution began as the nebulous dream of a man seeking to perpetuate his name and at the same time to serve the human race
The Smithsonian Institution began as the nebulous dream of a man seeking to perpetuate his name and at the same time to serve the human race. Faced, at the age of sixty-one, with the problem of disposing of his fortune of about £100,000, James Smithson, a bachelor Englishman, drew up a will that made history in the field of science. As it goes into its second century it seems fitting to retell its story, with special attention given to the men who have shaped its destiny and have helped to make it one of the world's leading cultural and scientific centers.
