Biographies

The Royal Society of Victoria had its origin in two independent societies, the Victorian Institute for the Advancement of Science and the Philosophical Society of Victoria, which were founded in 1854 and united in the following year as the Philosophical Institute of Victoria. The name was changed to The Royal Society of Victoria late in 1859 and the first meeting was held on 21 December that year. Its aim is to contribute to the advancement of science and, through science, to the good of the Victorian community.

The Philosophical Society of Victoria and the Victorian Institute for the Advancement of Science merged to become the Philosophical Institute of Victoria in June 1855. In 1860 it changed its name to the Royal Society of Victoria. Works by these bodies are found under the name used at the time of publication.
