George Hibbert


London Institution President

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.


Hibbert was President of the London Institution intermittently between 1805 and 1835.
