  • Dr. B. R. Chaterjee was the first Indian to be the Principal and a respected educationist. Equally important was the role played by Dr. Pt. Sita Ram, who was the Secretary of the College for three decades stewarding most of the modernization programmes. Dr. Pt. Sita Ram brought glory to his alma mater when he was honoured with knighthood and later appointed the country’s High Commissioner at Karachi.
