On Tuesday, September 7, 1875, a meeting was organized at Mme. Blavatsky's rooms in New York City to hear a lecture given by George H. Felt entitled "The Lost Canon of Proportion of the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans". About 17 people were present. During the discussion that followed the lecture, a suggestion was made that a Society be formed to pursue and promote such occult research.

On the next day another meeting took place with Mr. Felt lecturing again. The Society was more more formally organized, and sixteen people handed in their names for that purpose. A committee of three was appointed to draft a Constitution and Bylaws.

On September 13 at the same address, Mr. Felt gave yet another lecture. At this time the name of "The Theosophical Society" was agreed upon.
