Abstract

It appears that the first scientific society in Tasmania
was started-in 1838 under the auspices of Sir John
Franklin. The name of this society is, however, somewhat
uncertain. In the introductory remarks to the
first volume of its transactions it was called "The Philosophical
Society of Tasmania," but it does not appear
that this name found favour, because subsequently the
name "Tasmanian Society" was adopted. The object of
this society was the study of natural science, in particular
that of Tasmania.
