The philanthropist George Birkbeck founded the London Mechanics’ Institute in 1823 to provide education to working class men in the capital. In what was considered radical at the time, the Institute allowed artisans and craftsmen to learn about science, art and economics. Seven years after it first opened its doors, the Institute began to admit women - one of the first institutions in the country to do so.
