History

The Geological Society of Glasgow aimed to unite, into a recognised body, all the friends and advocates of geological science residing in Glasgow and the surrounding districts and to encourage and cultivate geological science generally.

Meetings were held at the Glasgow Athenaeum and there appear to have been links with the Glasgow Mechanics' Institution and Anderson's Institution.
