Institute.[edit]

I believe the Peabody Institute in Peabody, MA is actually the main Public Library now. Please correct this if this is not the case.

Peabody Education Fund.[edit]

New International Encyclopedia described his donations of 1867.

Freeman of London[edit]

If George Peabody received honor of "Freeman of London", why is he not listed at the Wikipedia page that includes all honorees of title? Avon Edward Foote, chotank@aol.com.68.35.109.55 (talk) 15:00, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

I assume the page you are referring to is List of Honorary Freemen of the City of London. As stated there, "The mixed list below contains just some of the names of people who have received the Freedom or Honorary Freedom over the years." In other words, it is not complete, and doesn't pretend to be complete. As the same article also states, "[a]bout 1800 Freemen are admitted each year" – far too many to list in full – though admittedly foreign nationals are a tiny minority. Like most of Wikipedia, the list has been compiled piecemeal, and reflects the interests and biases of individual editors (which tend to focus on modern celebrities rather than historic worthies). There is also a Category:Freemen of the City of London, although that currently only contains 29 names, so is even more select. That said, there is no reason why both lists shouldn't include Peabody, so I will add him. GrindtXX (talk) 19:52, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
