*see attached portrait -- painting by Stanley Meltzoff

 

 

"Prompted by a desire to share their scientific interests, ideas, and findings, the 33 founders of the National Geographic Society first met at the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C., on January 13, 1888. This 1963 painting depicts the founders signing their names to the new organizations's charter. The table in the painting is in use today in the Society's historic Hubbard Hall."
