The Smithsonian Institution, located in the Mall, was established in 1846 through the half million dollar bequest of James Smithson. From small beginnings it has grown to be one of the mightiest of the world's activities in gathering and disseminating beneficial knowledge. It has made American Science respected in all parts of the world. Some of the greatest race-benefiting inventions of the age and the foundation of many sciences had their inception here.
