The Columbian Institute for the Promotion of Arts and Sciences (1816–1838) was a literary and science institution in Washington, D.C., founded by Dr. Edward Cutbush (1772–1843), a naval surgeon.[2] Thomas Law had earlier suggested of such a society "at the seat of government."[2] It was the first "learned society" established in Washington and was organized on June 28, 1816,[3] sixteen years after the city was occupied, and less than two years after the invasion by the British troops.[2] The second article of its constitution states: "The Institute shall consist of mathematical, physical, moral and political sciences, general literature and fine arts."[3]
