Who Am I?

An easy peasy one today. Don't think too hard about this one.

As a result of a bequest from a British citizen who had never been to America, on August 10, 1846, President James Polk signed a law officially creating this education and research institute. The building shown here, informally known as The Castle, was completed in 1855 to house the institute.

Name the institute.
