Robert Carrington, 2nd Baron Carrington

Scientific

London Institution President

London - 1812 - 1827

The London Institution was an educational institution founded in London in 1806. It preceded the University of London in making scientific education widely available in the capital to people such as Dissenters who adhered to non-orthodox religious beliefs and were consequently barred from attending Oxford or Cambridge. Effectively came to an end in 1909; its buildings were demolished in 1936.
