Royal Scottish Geographical Society Founded


The Royal Scottish Geographical Society was founded in 1884 by a group led by John George Bartholomew (1860 - 1920), the Edinburgh cartographer, which included Professor James Geikie (1839 - 1914) and Mrs A.L. Bruce, the daughter of explorer David Livingstone. The Society promotes an understanding of the natural environment and human societies through education, research and expeditions. It was established in Edinburgh, moving to Glasgow in 1993 and then to Perth fifteen years later.
