Opis: The Literary Record and Journal of the Linnaean Association of Pennsylvania College, Vol. 1 - Association Pennsylvania College; Linna

Excerpt from The Literary Record and Journal of the Linnaean Association of Pennsylvania College, Vol. 1: Conducted by a Committee of the Association
The Linnan Association of Pennsylvania College having determined to establish a Journal with the title which heads this article, and appointed us its editor, it becomes our duty to sketch its proposed character, unfold its objects, and bespeak for it the favor and support of the public whom it proposes to interest, benefit and instruct. This Periodical has its origin in the wants and enterprise of the young men united as active members of the Association under whose auspices it appears. The Linnan Association of Pennsylvania College was organized a few months since under a Constitution, one of the fundamental articles of which is, in effect, that "as aim shall be to promote among its members a love of nature and an admiration for the works of God, by cultivating the study of the various branches of Natural Science and an acquaintance with animated nature, and by making collections of specimens in these departments, as also in that of Antiquities, natural and artificial curiosities, and the like." This, of course, involved the idea and necessity of a Museum, or Cabinets for the preservation and exhibition of the various objects which it was proposed to collect, and, as is usual and natural among young men in Literary Institutions, their monthly meetings were to be enlivened and made profitable by Reports, Discussions and Essays upon the rich and varied objects of their inquiry.
To aid and direct them in their inquiries they naturally looked to those who had more experience and had made greater progress in these pursuits than themselves. They therefore solicited the countenance and counsel of those who had distinguished themselves in these pursuits or were known to be interested in them, and, by electing them as Honorary Members invited their co-operation. The response which they received from our scientific men in various parts of the country exceeded their most sanguine expectations.
