        Dates d’existence


        Atkinson's Institution was founded under the will of Thomas Atkinson, a radical bookseller in Glasgow and former Lecturer in Craniology at Anderson's Institution. Atkinson's Institution was intended 'for the instruction of artisans and all members of the middle classes in literature and languages'. Run initially on the lines of a personal trust, it was incorporated under the Atkinson Institution of Glasgow Act 1861, but never achieved physical existence although the Trustees built up considerable funds. Atkinson's Institution was absorbed into the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College in 1887 and the Institution's funds were used to provide bursaries for students.
