Dates of existence
The Chemical Society of Glasgow appears to have been founded in 1798, according to Sir William Ramsay, whose grandfather, William Ramsay of Camlachie was elected its first president. The Society met 'in their Hall' in Graeme Street, and conducted chemical experiments. There had been an earlier Chemical Society in Glasgow, probably associated with Glasgow College or University in the 1780s.
